Family Transcends Hate

| Chicago, IL, USA | In-Laws, LGTBQ, Parents & Guardians, Popular

(I recently came out to my wife as transgender after 15 years of marriage. It’s been a rough road, but we decide we’re going to stay together because we love each other. Before I begin transitioning, we need to tell my mother-in-law. She’s a sweet woman and adores me, but she’s in her 80s and a strong Catholic, so we’re not sure how she’ll react. My wife sits down with her and tells her about me. Her reaction is priceless.)

Mother-In-Law: “Does this mean I finally have a daughter-in-law?”

(I love that woman!)

Red Light Leader: It’s A Trap!

| Rockville, MD, USA | In-Laws, Parents & Guardians

(I’m driving my mother-in-law to our nail appointment the day before her youngest son’s wedding.)

GPS: “Speed trap reported ahead.”

(The traffic in front of us slows and comes to a complete stop.)

Mother-In-Law: “Oh! Is this because of the speed trap?”

Me: *pointing ahead* “No, it’s because of that red light.”


This Family Is Lawless

| Portland, OR, USA | In-Laws, Popular, Siblings

(I’m stocking shelves at work, when a customer approaches me.)

Man: “Excuse me, is [Manager] working today?”

Me: “Yeah, he should be in his office. Should I go get him?”

Man: “If you could, please. By the way, I’m [Name]; I’m [Manager]’s brother-in-law. Could you tell him that his sister’s here, too?”

Me: “Okay, I’ll be right back.”

(I go into my manager’s office to inform him that his relatives are waiting for him.)

Me: “Hey, [Manager], your brother-in-law is here; he wants to see you.”

Manager: “What?! I don’t have a brother-in-law!”

Me: *shocked* “Um, do you at least have a sister?”

Manager: “Oh, wait, are you talking about [Name]?”

Me: “Yeah?”

Manager: “Ugh, he’s getting ahead of himself again. He’s just the father of my niece; he’s not actually my brother-in-law yet.”

(My manager exits his office and goes out to the shop floor.)

Manager: “Hey! [Name]! Hurry up and marry my sister already, you lazy son-of-a-b****!”

Manager’s Sister: *turns red at the sight of every customer within earshot staring at them*
