I barely have the words... the latest in the MIL saga

I am beside myself. You know those people that you try to help but regardless, they are, for lack of a better way of putting it, dumb as a box of rocks? Yes I am talking about my mother in law and before you think I am the worst daughter in law in the world, take a listen.

We got a call from my somewhat frantic sister in law she needed to speak with us... "Mom was ok physically, almost broke but"...was the garbled message we got. My husband called his sister. Well evidently my mother in law won a million dollars...wait for it...wait for it... Yes she won the million dollars that would be all hers after she finished wiring 10 payments of $2500.00 dollars to the mystery people who are out of the country!!!!! Well, after wiring a total of $25,000! Yes, $25,000 effing dollars out of the country she became a little concerned when her million dollar effing check didn't show the eff up today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't even wrap my head around this. But...remember babes in blogland...my MIL knows everything and this incident is no different, only now she is left with $6000 in her bank account, $800 a month income and $1200 bare minimum monthly expenses. The good times just keep rolling with her. It is a good thing she knows everything so she can figure her way out of this one.

First of all, let me tell you that I LOVE your blog. I love your honesty.

My MIL was a piece of work, too. My husband's whole damn family are all pieces of work...

Maybe she can be one of those greeters at Wal-mart or get a part-time job or something. Is there any actions she can take to get the $$ back?
