My mother almost 74 years old. Ever since I can remember, she always corrected me the way I behave while, at the same time, give out demands (instead of polite requests) such as "Go get dee box ober dere!" or "Bacuum the lee-bing room!" rather than with a nice request like "Will you please get the box over there?" or "Will you please vacuum the living room?". If you're wondering why the first two examples is written that way is because I'm explaining how she demands things with her thick Filipino accent. My mother just likes to demand and be controlling.

Do you any of you folks have a mom who's a control freak?

Mom used to be, has mellowed in the last ten years. MIL is not.

Nope, my MIL is great. She's coming in town on Friday and I'm looking forward to. She hangs out with me and watches movies while I clean guns!

HOLY SHIT my soon-to-be-mother-in-law is a complete psychopath, nice lady, just looses her mind when she isn't in control.

I feel comfortable with my MIL because she's more sensitive about people's feelings.

MIL doesnt speak english, so we are good.

My mother still tries to be. Nothing like 100 miles distance to put a stop to that crap.

My mother used to try but gave up after I was like 16 or 17 yrs old... tells me I'm stubborn as a goat like daddy. Still she loves me and I would do anything for her.

My MIL is great. She treats me like one of her own kid and is a great person. However, when it comes to my boy (her first grandchild) she takes over everything and we get instructed on everything. Still, she a great person and I would do anything for her.

My mom says I have to go now.

My mom is not that way but my MIL is. My wife is becoming more like her mother too which is scary.

My MIL is dead so its not an issue. But even when she was alive she was a nice person.

My mother is a saint.

My FORMER Mother-in-Law is a dictator who tells her husband and adult children what to do. She used to give me orders all the time also although I rarely obeyed her largeness.

The last time I spoke with her was in a phone conversation in which I referred to her using the "F" word and the "C" word. Apparently that got her attention. She never spoke to me after that.

My MIL looks at me as merely the vessel who brought her grandchildren. She's civil, I'm civil.

My mother is simply a freak. She used to be relatively normal. She recently married an arrogant passive- agressive holier than thou prick of the highest order. And she's done very well converting herself into his perfect wife.

My mom has never been a control freak, and my MIL thinks that I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread. I guess I'm just lucky.
Link Posted: 3/21/2006 11:53:43 AM EDT
my mother is most definately a control freak. Shes already told me that she is going to revoke my inheritance once I enlist and that i'll be on my own. Told me she wouldn't even write me a letter.

Oh well, my sister and the Army are the only family I'll need.

Holy crap. That just sucks.

My mother mellowed out significantly once I got a little older and proved I could handle myself.
Before that she was a little uptight, but maybe thats what happens when she raises two boys
She was and still is a saint, even though we don't always agree on everything.

Keep the MIL on another continent and you have no MIL problems.

That reminds me of the thread where someone mentioned they had a job offer in France. We forgot to list the above as a positive.z

I see you're dating my girlfriend as well, guess we'll have to fight now.

My mom is great, can't say the same about my girlfriend's...

My mother is very much a control freak. Unfortunately for her, so is my husband. She came to visit for a month a couple of years ago (I moved from London to NY and she still tried control long-distance style) and try as she might, she couldn't get past him. She resorted to throwing a drunken tantrum out on our back deck, just sat out there sobbing and screaming. Rather embarrassing.

I had to get cancer to get her off my back. She never calls me now.
