I have two sisters-in-law. Sister-in-law 1 is kind, thoughtful and helpful.
Sister-in-law 2 is the complete opposite, selfish, demanding and totally self centred. She has never "approved" of me as she considered her brother should have married someone from his own community so our contact has usually been polite but at arms length
Usually everyone lets her say and do what she pleases to avoid conflict, however, when I heard her say that those who use food banks are not her problem, are lazy and don't want to work and have brought their situation on themselves - I couldn't hold back and told her some harsh home truths. We have since avoided each other completely
Now S-i-L 1 wants to get us together to "bury the hatchet" (the only place I would want to bury it is in her head!). I have told her that I have nothing I want to say to S-i-L 2 and I am pretty sure she has nothing she wants to say to me (she would expect me to apologise to her!)
However S-i-L 1 keeps pressing the issue - how do I get her to drop it without hurting her feelings?
