Andrei I'm not optimistic about the future for this Daughter-in-law, Mother-in-Law relationship

Heidi Withers went to stay with her future in laws and things didn't go that well it seems.

And her mother-in-law to be, Carolyn Bourne, vented her displeasure at the way she behaved while staying in her house in an E-Mail.
"If you want to be accepted by the wider Bourne family, I suggest you take some guidance from experts with utmost haste.

"Here are a few examples of your lack of manners: When you are a guest in another's house, you do not declare what you will and will not eat – unless you are positively allergic to something.

"You do not remark that you do not have enough food. You do not start before everyone else.

"You do not take additional helpings without being invited to by your host.

"When a guest in another's house, you do not lie in bed until late morning in households that rise early. You fall in line with house norms.

"You should never ever insult the family you are about to join at any time and most definitely not in public.

"You regularly draw attention to yourself. Perhaps you should ask yourself why. No one gets married in a castle unless they own it. It is brash, celebrity style behaviour.

"If your parents are unable to contribute very much towards the cost of your wedding, it would be most ladylike and gracious to lower your sights and have a modest wedding as befits both your incomes.

"One could be accused of thinking that Heidi Withers must be patting herself on the back for having caught a most eligible young man. I pity Freddie."

And her future daughter-in-law's response to this E-Mail? Why to forward it it everybody she knows of course - who forwarded it to others and so forth.

Which is why you can read it here.

How sad it is when people mistake etiquette for manners.
