Woman's savage response to critical mother-in-law 😎

A woman shares her experience with her critical and conservative mother-in-law who always finds flaws in her and tries to fix them. The woman recounts instances where her mother-in-law threw away her lingerie and made weekly reminders for her not to get pregnant. Recently, the mother-in-law has been sending the woman boxes of tea that she claims have yielded good results on her face, which the woman finds unnecessary. During lunch with her in-laws, the mother-in-law made a comment about the woman's face looking better, to which the woman responded with a savage comment about her husband helping her de-stress. The resulting argument has left the woman wondering if she was in the wrong. Read on for the comments and reactions to this wild story.
