I was at Walmart and bumped into them. Luckily, I had showered and was wearing a really nice outfit.

They were cordial. I felt nothing. It made me think about the day almost 5 years ago when I went to their house to tell them why I was divorcing their son.

That sucked. What a difference 5 years make. Now, they're just people that I used to know- I was their daughter for 26 years.

Life is truly like a box of chocolates.

I have not seen mine for two years. I'm sure when I do they won't speak to me though..

That's kinda yucky, but sooner or later, it's going to happen.
My MIL and SIL live 3000 miles away, so I won't bump into them. However, after being their "daughter/sister" for over 30 years, they never contacted me after DDay.

Blood is thicker than water, or as I like to say, people are stupid as shit.

Added booster was that you looked good.

If I saw my xils, they would fake nice and say hello. I'd notice their embarrassment over their son's behavior and choice of current spouse for sure. Knew them since age 16 and whole adult life until divorce.

People who haven't been in this situation don't really get it.

Saw mine in Publix a few weeks ago. She saw me I know but did one of those "I'm really into looking at these jars of tomato sauces on the shelf" thing to avoid me. So I checked out and left. They too turned on me after Dday because you know, their daughter was raised perfectly and she is perfect. Oh yeah...I forgot...when your son got out of prison and had no money, I bought him an airline ticket to Florida and put him into business because nobody would hire him. How easily they forget.

Sean - They tried the "we didn't see you" thing.

Not happening with me. I will make them be nice to me if it kills me.
