Do you have a relative that can't seem to mind their own business ?

My fiance's sister has a tendency to call him when we are in the middle of eating a meal. When he says he's eating, she always has to ask "what are you having?" and when he answers, a lot of the time she'll make rude comments like "Why are you eating that?" or "Eww...you like that??" Of course, since I was the one that cooked for him, when I overhear her saying these things it makes me feel like she thinks I'm the worst cook ever. One time she said, "No biscuits with that?" and I felt penalized for not making biscuits. I just have to ignore her and remind myself that my fiance loves my cooking and it's his opinion that matters to me, not hers. "You can't please all the people all the time."

We sound like we may have the same mother in law. May I ask if you have any children? The reason I ask is it gets so much worse once you have kids. The think I hate the most is when I do something with or for my sons and she says "Are you sure that is the best thing to do?" I want to scream when she does that to me. I hear you loud and clear on this one.

Yes, I have a few nosey relatives. One imperticular is my sister. She has to know what I am doing at all times. But when she calls and I ask where she is at or going. She can't tell me...till afterwards..Now what kind of crap is that? I just turned it around on her the other day and it backed fired on her. I love her to pieces. But I hate it when someone has to know everything about you and what your doing. But keeps everything about themselves hush hush. I tend to stay away from people like that. They tend to be up to no good.

That would be my sister and she doesnt just ask questions she has to tell you what to do also and I love her because she is my sister but I wish some times that she would some how lose her voice when we have to spend more than a hour in the same room.No you are not alone and good luck sorry to say they never stop

OMG! NAN! And you know what I'm talking about. She calls and asks the silliest questions about my personal business and doesn't even give me a chance to answer them..rapid fire all the way. All of them are none of her business, but she figures she's looking out for me..but she's really just driving me nutty!

Ironically the really nosey one in my family is my brother. He will pry into everything given half a chance and is constantly telling me what I should be doing with my life, despite the fact that I am the older sibling. He drives me nuts when he phones me, demanding to know eactly what I have been doing.
