My Mother-in-Law Tried Snooping in My Bedroom Only to End up Screaming and Feeling Humiliated

A woman was tired of her mother-in-law constantly invading her privacy. Time after time, she just had to deal with it until one day, she told her husband what his mother was doing and how she planned to catch her.

A Reddit user took to the platform to ask others for advice on whether or not she was wrong for how she chose to get revenge on her snooping mother-in-law. Her husband felt she had gone too far.

The woman explained that she had done the only thing to make her husband see what his mother was doing. However, the man didn’t think she needed to do it and told her she was wrong.

She then turned to netizens to find out if anyone else thought what she did was going too far or if she had done the only thing that would get her mother-in-law to stop her behavior.

What Did the Woman’s Mother-In-Law Do?

The woman shared that her mother-in-law (MIL) habitually wanted to go into their bedroom whenever she went to her and her husband’s house. Once, when her MIL did this, the woman followed her.

The woman’s MIL did not hear her coming up the stairs behind her, and the woman saw her MIL go into her bedroom and rifle through the bills on her dresser. When the woman confronted her MIL, the older woman denied snooping.

The woman knew it was finally time to get her revenge on her snooping MIL.

The MIL said she had only entered the woman’s bedroom because she couldn’t find a bathroom elsewhere. However, these actions prompted the woman to install an exterior doorknob that required a key. She established the same type of doorknob in their office.

Even after doing this, the MIL kept claiming she forgot where the bathroom was and tried to enter the bedroom or office. The woman’s husband told her that since they had installed the locks, she had no reason to get upset.

However, everything came to a head when the MIL and the woman’s sister-in-law (SIL) came to dinner with them over the holidays. The woman knew it was finally time to get her revenge on her snooping MIL.

How Did the Woman Get Revenge?

The woman searched for her keys to lock her bedroom as she knew her MIL was coming over, but her husband told her she wouldn’t need to lock the doors and that his mother wouldn’t try to get into their bedroom.

The couple argued about it for a while and finally agreed to coat their doorknob in fine glitter so they could see if she had entered their bedroom. It was a tactic that had once worked for them when the man didn’t believe his mother was snooping.

However, this time, the woman took it a step further. She coated the doorknob in glitter and rigged a folder of glitter over the door that would drop down on her MIL when she entered the room.

The woman unlocked the door and waited for her MIL to fall into the trap. When his family arrived at their house, the man showed them which bathroom they could use and asked them not to go upstairs.

Yet it didn’t take long for the woman’s MIL to ignore her son’s request and go upstairs and into their bedroom, where she got covered in glitter from her hair to her hands. The woman shared:

“She completely lost it and started screaming at me, so I yelled back, and now my husband is saying I went too far.”

The woman’s MIL also told her she was terrible for what she had done, but her SIL reassured the Reddit user that she had done nothing wrong and that her mother deserved what her mother got because she was snooping.

The woman’s MIL told her that the stunt had ruined her car, too, because it was now covered in glitter, and she could not get it all cleaned off. The woman asked if she had gone too far or was justified in what she did to her MIL.

While this woman experienced an issue with her mother-in-law sneaking into her bedroom around the holidays, another woman was frustrated when her mother-in-law threw out her Thanksgiving dish. You can find the full story here.
