the mother in law BLOW OFF

In case you guys missed this email that began circulating the internet yesterday, you have to stop what you're doing it and read it right now.

This was addressed to Heidi from her soon to be mother in law, pictured above.

from: Carolyn Bourne
to: heidi withers
subject: your lack of manners

Here are a few examples of your lack of manners:

When you are a guest in another's house, you do not declare what you will and will not eat - unless you are positively allergic to something.

You do not remark that you do not have enough food.

You do not start before everyone else.

You do not take additional helpings without being invited to by your host.

When a guest in another's house, you do not lie in bed until late morning in households that rise early - you fall in line with house norms.

You should never ever insult the family you are about to join at any time and most definitely not in public. I gather you passed this off as a joke but the reaction in the pub was one of shock, not laughter.

You regularly draw attention to yourself. Perhaps you should ask yourself why. No one gets married in a castle unless they own it. It is brash, celebrity style behaviour.

I understand your parents are unable to contribute very much towards the cost of your wedding. (There is nothing wrong with that except that convention is such that one might presume they would have saved over the years for their daughters' marriages.)

If this is the case, it would be most ladylike and gracious to lower your sights and have a modest wedding as befits both your incomes.

One could be accused of thinking that Heidi Withers must be patting herself on the back for having caught a most eligible young man. I pity Freddie.

Yikes! Although, I'm sorry--- anyone that helps themselves to seconds without asking had this coming. Who the hell does Heidi Withers think she is? Bitch.


  1. The rudeness of this e-mail takes its irony to heights rarely seen!

  2. Omg! What a nightmare of a woman!

  3. Umm, the email was awful, but I agree with her mother on almost every point she made, except for criticism she levied about the wedding and her parents, and "I pity Freddie."

  4. I know, how funny would it be if Heidi Withers is actually the world's worst daughter in law. I really want to know what the insult in the pub was all about. I bet the poor girl laid in bed late, because she was avoiding the annoying family. I think my fave line is "you fall in line with house norms" LOL. What if house norms include rape and torture?
