I will come to the topic directly. My MIL keeps commenting on how her son, my Dh changed now. He helps me doing household chores and cooking. she always pass comments about it, when I am alone. Like " pavam, he is working in office, at home doing chores". In front of him, she talks in appreciative tone. But, when he is away, she puts sad face and always says he is pavam. Then she will say few stories about how her relatives daughter do all housework themselves, they cook this food and that food and so on. I am loosing my patience nowadays listening to all such nonsense. Few times, I simply walked away from the place. But, still she continue to say such kind of stories. I knew many are not true. She cannot say such things to me directly, becoz I would react very strongly. So, she is passing such stories and comments indirectly. They visit us once in a while, so I cannot completely cutoff talking to her. Now I want to know How I should put an end to this irritating story telling.
