Today, my mother excitedly jumped up and down, announcing that one of her sweet younger coworkers got engaged. I wished she'd had the same reaction to my engagement when I announced it to her a few days earlier. FML

Sounds like something my mother would do. I get engaged, she hates my fiancée and doesn't give a shit that I'm happy. My brother knocks up some random girl, and suddenly that girl is "like a daughter."

I feel your pain.

<p>There goes her invite to your wedding! And if she gets upset about that, tell her to stuff it and shouldn't she be more excited about her co-worker's wedding anyway?</p>

<p>Please don't be too hard on your mom. She may have received your news at a bad time for her, may have thought about past lost love in her life or perhaps have had to change her hopes for your future in that single moment. &nbsp;That's the hallmark version. She could be a b1tch who's not going to be a great mother in law. Only time will tell.</p>

I'm sorry, I feel for you. my mother could have cared less when I told her I was engaged and made it all about her and refused to go dress shopping with me. :(
