Yeah. F**k those guys. Tell your MIL you actually DO feel a bit under the weather and would she mind being a dear and making you a cup of tea/making the dinner/chucking a load of washing on for you *queue big puppy dog eyes*
Personally, I'm lucky, my MIL is the best. But I know the type of asshole you're referring to. My own mum can be like that. Like damn woman, I need to relax too.
ask them if they would say that to your husband if HE was watching footy, or would that be ok since hes a man?
