My brother-in-law is the son of a preacher. He's also a corporate lawyer. He has never liked me because I'm easy prey. I heard him telling my aging folks to give any inheritance away to charity. I asked him later what he was on about and he told me about what he thought of my family dynamics. He's a narcistic egomaniac who serves himself on a plate in each room he enters. He strives to succeed and my sister is the oldest sibling and plays princess to my dad. They live on the other side of the continent and do award winning performances when they visit. They don't deal with the OCD and Psychotic episodes I have had to live with all my life. They hide behind the church and each other. I learned today hatemongering works best in groups of two or more and the individual who sees through the bullshit hasn't a chance.
Please, let there be a movie writer or producer be reading this. We could make a blockbuster.

I think several such movies have been made.  Personally I ignore the potential for inheritance - I would rather pay my own bills than await the death of a family member for a financial windfall.

I feel like absolute dirt for even thinking along these lines but this soul sucking,religious hypocrate has always been a bully to me. I lost it. Where does one turn for support as an atheist? But seriously, this reminds me of an episode of CSI with the bad acting and all. Even the church hair is there and the starched shirt. I literally feel one day I am going to be framed for something. Just to get me out of the way. It's that serious. I have no one to talk to so I vent here.

Thanks.

You are not giving enough credit to your parents. maybe they see the bullshit like you do.

I understand where you are coming from on this.  I have an aunt who is a total turd about manipulating family to her own benefit.  I assume she'll inherit (or has already inherited) my grandmother's house.  I put all those people behind me a long time ago because I couldn't take part in their religious malarkey any longer.

If you have any control of  the charities the inheritance should go, a charity that deals with mental health issues would be a win win.  You can't fix it, but you may be able to guide it.  Good Luck, we're all going to need it

Ask your brother in law this:

 

Do you flush the toilet before your finished so you don't have to smell the stench?

Comment by Bill on June 25, 2011 at 6:19am
That is so funny because he has a very weird diet where he won't eat anything anyone else is eating and the bathroom stinks something special when he's done poopin. haha. Everything about him is pathologically different.

I had a great talk with with my dad once the interloper was gone. He told me he didn't really see things the same as my brother n law. My parents have always been fair. We have a crazy family but they keep it together. I have found that talking with some here at this site helps me get thru the crazyness.
