I used to answer their calls however now I dont. My FIL has become slightly annoying with calling everyday to ask " hows it going" and then expecting me to do all the talking. Then their is my MIL ( her and FIL are no longer married) she only calls whhen she wants something or to call and tell lies to my kids. She will say shit like: "oh boys I can wait to come over again so we can just play and play" she gets them excited then never comes over. She has only seen our children 3 times since 2 days before last Christmas. Yeah sad isnt it. MIL is a total bitch for many reasons.... Anyway what about you? I dont if its imporant they can leave a message.
They don't even know the house number.But when they did,I didn't answer.All they wanted was to bitch about SD or to have DH bitch at BM because she wasn't kissing their ass(aka babying SS).They never asked about my kids,except when DH reminded them it was one of their birthdays.Then they'd have to ask how old they were.Well,if you were ever fucking around,you'd know.Dumb cunts.
If there is an emergency,they have DH's cell number.However,if they call and DH is asleep,I let it go to voicemail.I couldn't care less what they're calling him for-I'm not answering.99% likely they're just calling him for money.
We don't have a landline so when they do call it is to husbands cell, because they do not have mine. Husband knows that I do not want to talk to his family because I have to bite my tongue on certain things. They only call when it is a emergency, holiday or birthday. It is like pulling teeth to get them to see us when we did live in the same town as his sisters. We had to go to his sister place to see them and to get them to see their grandson. We have not got to spend Christmas with them yet, because we have to drive to see them when just this April they went to visit his sister for her birthday and she lives further than we do. Like four hours more than if they came to us. I don't mind going to them sometimes, but they don't even make a effort to see their grandson which irks me and my husband is the baby of the family and was the one that got called and they would make a effort to see him when they where up close. But since we got our son baptize as a different religion than theirs they stopped calling so much and trying to see us. I think they are mad because it is my religion and what my husband wanted our kids to be raised as. We plan to take our son and future kids to the religion my husband was raised with so they can see the difference in them and decided when they turn 18 what religion they want and we told them that but I guess it not good enough. We just can't find a church that my husband likes to do that. They just can't say I withhold my son from them. I just think I go out of my way for people who don't.
I talk to my FIL and if he calls I will answer. However, he rarely calls and when he does he calls dh cell and during the week. Not sure why but he never calls when he's home.
Now my MIL is a different story. I literally hate her and I won't talk to her at all anymore. I won't answer her calls or even speak a word to her. I tried to have a relationship with her but she such an evil and crazy miserable b***h that she doesn't exist in my life. Life is much better like that.
