As the mom wrote in her post on Reddit, her MIL is pretty religious and came up with a name she thought would be perfect — but mom didn’t agree. “I would rather gargle broken glass and gasoline,” she wrote. “I politely declined or changed the subject a few times.”
The mom decided to go with a different name, but her MIL didn’t give up on her wish. “Y’all can name her whatever you want, but I’m gonna call he Mazie. Short for Amazing Grace,” her MIL told the mom. “Who the F does that?”
And get this — that was five years ago and she has refused to stop with the Mazie nonsense this entire time.
If that wasn’t disrespectful enough, her MIL pulled the same stunt with her second granddaughter, who is almost 2 years old now. “Her dad chose her middle name,” the mom wrote. “MIL only calls her by that or a country-fied version of it.”
The mom also updated her original post to explain that her husband died in July and for now, she and her kids are stuck living with her in-laws. Unfortunately, this is making the situation much, much worse. “My partner and I have always hated the nickname,” she wrote, “but when he was alive we only saw them a couple times a month, so it wasn’t as annoying.”
But still, the constant diss of mom’s wishes is starting to grate on her. “We’ve been dealing with that for 5 years,” she wrote. “Who the (expletive) does that?”
