British Poll: Mother-in-Law Most Dreaded Christmas Meal Guest

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Britons say parents and in-laws top the list of the most-dreaded Christmas meal guests -- with the female host`s mother-in-law in first place."



This is hardly surprising news for Brits or Americans, a mother-in-law`s mission in life is to belittle her daughter`s husband.

How many times has a dude overheard his mother-in-law haranguing her daughter: Your husband is such a loser, I don`t detect any good qualities. He must be hung like a horse! If the dude burst in buck naked swinging his money maker like a lasso, the dreaded mother-in-law would get on her daughter`s case because he isn`t making adult movies to provide her with a decent living.

There is no way to please a mother-in-law; you will be wasting your time and money trying to buy your way into her good graces by smothering her with gifts.

For God`s sake don`t invite the horrible woman to your Christmas dinner. You`d be better off inviting the Grinch or a serial killer to break bread with your wife and family.

Merry Christmas to all my readers.
