Its Canada people, we're straight up here

My SIL is from the "old country" and plays those stupid idiotic old school indian politic games. Me, I suck at them. She drives me fucking banana's. I used to think that she wasn't the brightest bulb in the bunch, but had a good heart. Now I think she's a total selfish bitch. Which really really sucks because I can not be fake. At all. If I don't like you, I don't talk to you.

My MIL is also old school. Normally I can deal with such stuff, but sometimes she pushes my buttons, gets me to agree to things I'm just not happy about.

I"m tired, i'm frustrated and I don't want to see my SIL tomorrow and I have too.

Sorry this isn't very clear, but unfortunately its a combination of not knowing how to explain indian family dynamics to a mostly non-indian readership and not wanting to reveal too much.

I hate politics. I am a straight forward, non-passive aggressive person that can be slightly opinionated. I hate dealing with the passive aggressive, hidden meaning type people..URGHHH!!!

Not that this helps, but EGM is always saying the same thing about my family and we're definitely not Indian. Your situation sounds more dramatic, though, and of course I can't compare the ins and outs. Good luck.

I'm sorry. That sounds really not fun. Managing my own family's minor politics is a pain. So I can only imagine how it would be if there was a major "political situation." Good luck and we're here if you need to vent.

We're not Indian, but my family and my husbands family are so culturally different. It's funny though, it's not my SIL I don't look forward to seeing, it's my own sister! Hehe. I wish you luck!
