They sure took a lot

If there is something that I've hate about my sibling's family is like treating our place like a supply line, taking what they want. Most specially when were not around. Mom wasn't around that afternoon as she went for a mass dedicated for her birthday. while she was gone, my brother decided to wait it out until the traffic was gone. It was usual evening until I started noticing them taking stuff. like the ones they took from the mango tree, they claimed they caught only four but i saw his in-law taking an entire plastic of it. And before they left, took a huge cake, fruit salads and the plastic bottles that should be use for my mom's future pot. Lucky for me, I was able to hide three soda bottles right before they came. I don't want to sound rude but I think they should ask mom first. I was really pissed off that night, it's like they didn't have any of that. This is what happens when mom was being too generous to them, they abuse. And yet, my elder brother's in-laws kids, didn't even take anything when they visit the same time. Mom's reasoning was they're so many and he has so many kids and gets hungry all the time. but it's not fair, they took so much. I would be prepared more the next time. Or either grandma gave it to them and lied to me about them taking it in secret. but with the mango they did kept it from the rest, sneaking it back into their car.

That is how my sister is when she goes to my moms house. My mom does not say anything to her but she will call me and say something. That is not nice of them at all.

@Letranknight2015 I would be happy if they had a bowl of it but all that is not nice.

well, we still have to be respectful and honest even to our immediate families, and ask permission if we take something from their property.

I don't know how long has this been going, but it seems that they take the chance they get when ever there is an opportunity. @ridingbet well, it's only once in a life time occassion.

@Letranknight2015 but if their attention is not called by your mother, they will still continue doing that.

@ridingbet when we had a talk with my in laws, she used to whine about it but then when they're around, she just couldn't resist giving them more.

It is a shame that this is happening. It is very rude of them to take what isn't theirs.

Hello @JudyEv well, it would have been given if they ask permission, but they just took too much and too many.

@Letranknight2015 That is the important part isn't it? If they had asked you would have given it to them willingly - but they just took it without asking.

You're really offended by the deed of your sibling's fam. I understand how you felt. Family, should share blessings, of course, but due courtesy to the rightful owners should be made.

Hello @KnehKnah I'm just glad grandma was there or they could have taken more and more stuff away from the fridge. I wished that never happens again, but it will definitely happen again. anyways, they did sent noodles so i wasn't frustrated at the time.

@Letranknight2015 Wow, at least there was an "exchange gift" from them. Ha! Ha! Ha!

i guess the only solution is to tell them upright not to take this and that.

Well, that would be uptight rude, like my grandma did a while ago when the party was going. @MGjhaud

That is the usual feeling if things gotten without a permission. We are always happy to give but at least they have to ask to avoid an ill feeling.

I just had to let it out, because i don't do that when i go to their place. but I forgot that I used to do that when ever i go to my eldest brother's house. But not anymore since i know they spent so much more money on food than us here. @cacay1 now I know the feeling.

It would be nice for them to ask for permission then to just shop at your moms place and taking whatever they want.

Some people really know how to take advantage of our close family ties and hospitality

though it doesn't happen everyday but it was shocking to me. unknown to me, my other sister in law knew it the whole time and it's been like that since.

That's really rude for me. They should respect your mom and asked an approval before getting some stuff out from the house. My parents will be furious if it will happen in their own territory. I guess they had imposed to us the word respect while raising us into maturity.

They've been doing it for a while I'm glad that i was able to save a few. well, it seems they didn't chose respect their neighbor or in laws. That reminds me not to prepare for anything when my birthday happens again.

It seems mom forgot to give them something that they decided to take it themselves, but while waiting i think they could have taken more. @crossbones27 I thought I got used to it by now, boy I was so wrong.
