Yeah OPs mother-in-law clearly overreacted, but who comments that on their mother-in-law's picture? That was just rude and if OP didn't expect SOME retaliation, than he is just stupid. I thought the idea was to keep the peace with the in-laws.

OP's comment to her was WAY out of line. The MIL actions were also out of line, but you directly caused them OP. You do not disrespect someone like that, keep those nasty comments to yourself OP. Your name doesn't help your case any. Grow up and act like you are old enough to be married. Men are respectful, time to be one.

Op, there is a concept in Buddhism called Noble Silence. This would have been a prime example of when to use it. The comment served no purpose other then to hurt her. You weren't helping or even trying to. While what she did was an over reaction, I don't have much sympathy for you. If she only got your windshield and not your paint job, be thankful the damage was minimal.

Why so many YDI's? The bitch over reacted and you never fuck with a man's car...

#112, I know it's hard to tell from my profile photo, I mean with those huge eyes ,surely, I could be from some exotic wonderland. But sadly, no. I'm pretty boring and I am in fact from the USA.

So what has OP learned today then?

Since he's posted this as an FML with the username 'time to lawyer up'? Probably nothing. I'm sure he still sees nothing wrong with deliberately antagonizing his spouse's mother over something as stupid as a Facebook picture of a paint job.

Well I wouldn't expect vandalism and destruction of my personal property. A snappy comeback, sure, in return for an insult on the internet, but not something that actually extends to the real world.

#11. I think he learned that if he goes to court he'll get a brand new paint job courtesy of his MIL.

Even if yes it wasn't nice what the op said, the mother-in-law defenetly crazily reacted. If OP do go to court he/she have to understand that the family reunions will be full of stress. Maybe try talking to her about it...

55 - you also don't vandalize family's property for a mean comment either. Take the witch to court. Family or not she needs to be held accountable. If she does this to her daughters husband just think what she may do to someone who she doesn't know and they aren't so nice to her??

I'm sure he didn't expect her to vandalize his car. A nasty comment in return, a mean comment about something he did, the cold shoulder at the next family dinner all would have been acceptable. Heck, even a snarky remark along the lines of if he's so good at paint jobs, he can repaint her car would have been great. But vandalism? No. Now, maybe OP could have been nicer when he criticized the paint job on his MIL's car, but pouring paint on a windshield for a mean comment is never okay.

The OP wouldn't be ruining the MIL's life with a felony. She did that all on her own. What you are doing is blaming the victim. Also he doesn't have to press charges. Just get a police statement of what happened. You can get enough from small claims court to have the damages fixed and that does not take a lawyer or 3 years to process.

He is going to be so pissed when she unfriends him on facebook. It's going to ruin him!

Wow, that's a real motherly way to go about it.

just cause someone expresses an opinion doesn't mean the other person can vandalize their car that's just stupid. verbal argument is one thing but she actually went to his house and dumped paint on his car, I don't get why you people can't see that the mother in law is crazy.

#87- I don't think anyone is condoning the mother in-laws behavior. Had she reacted the way she did or not he still should have kept his mouth shut. You can have an opinion but when it comes to someone like your mother in-law especially you should probably have a filter.

By  Witchylady  |  17

What a bitch!!! She is a nut job and really needs to see a shrink. Report her to the cops and get her ass locked up in a looney bin. By the way what colour paint? Did your car come out as a piece of art

Pretty sure you don't get thrown into jail or a mental institution for vandalizing someone's property. She'd probably just get fined. And you should respect your mother-in-law no matter how bad her paint job is. I think OP deserved it.

Actually I believe that would be considered felony destruction of property. Anything over $500 in Kansas is a felony (the cost to repair the damage), and she vandalized his car. Clearly she is unstable. I feel for you. I'm just glad my Mother-in-law is not a nut bag.

You can get jail time for vandalism. In Texas, if the damage done is between $1,500 and $20,000, you can get up to 2 years in jail.

#37 Well, since OP is married to her daughter, he can at least respect his own wife enough to treat the person who raised her and whom she probably loves and cares about a lot (because if she and her mother truly hated each other I doubt they'd be FB friends) with a modicum of respect. Of course I do NOT believe his lack of respect excuse the MIL's actions. She was way out of line, and if they cannot resolve the issue with words, he is perfectly within his rights to take legal action.

I don't think the intention was to be an ass and if my mom did that to my husband's vehicle I would make her pay it. No matter how pissed someone is at a comment there is no reason to throw paint like a little kid on a vehicle. She could of found a more appropriate way to handle he situation.
