Yesterday my mother in law yelled at me. She was off the opinion that after electric repairing work I thrown the extra conceding fittings(pipes) on the roof. Whereas I gave those fittings to someone who works for these pipes. I even don't go to the roof top so how could I? I justified myself in a slower tone but still she was not accepting so I left the place and came back to my room.

I think it was a good idea that you tried to explain yourself calmly, and when she didn't accept it, you left calmly. That was smart.

Sorry to hear that. Hope she is not upset anymore, and you are feeling better now. I know some people are just very hard to accept other opinions or admit they have done something wrongly.

Some people can't admit when they are wrong and definitely won't apologize. My Mom was like that.

Sounds like a misunderstanding. Happens all the time in relationships. Better not to exchange words in anger.. I guess you did the right thing.

There is no use to exchange words with her. Good that you just left to prevent a heated confrontation.

I don't like being yelled at like a child. Sorry you had to go through that. When things are calm maybe you need to speak to your mom-in-law and tell her you did not like her tone of voice when she addressed that situation. Maybe she does not see anything wrong with yelling. Its a good thing you kept your composure and walked away. Afterall we need to respect the elderly.

I feel sorry for you having to live like this and deal with this. Normally living with your husband's family or he living with yours can be totally stressful and not an easy task to accomplish. You basically live under their rules and are forced to put up with more than should be necessary most of the time.

She might know by this time that she was wrong. I do hope she told you sorry.

I think it's good to meet yelling with a quieter tone. If it doesn't work, move on, as you did.
