Letter to FBIL


Recommended Posts

A couple weeks ago, we got an email from FI's sister, asking each member of the family to write a letter of encouragement to her husband, who was going on a Methodist spiritual retreat for 4 days. Well, we see the two of them maybe 1-2 times a year max. So I forwarded it on to FI, since he knows his BIL much better than I do.

 

For the last 3 weeks, FSIL has been emailing and harassing everyone to write a letter to her husband. The last notice was yesterday when she specifically directed it only to those members of the family who had not written yet.

 

So, with my usual "flair", here is what I've come up with:

 

 

 

"Hey Tim,

Great job on finding God. I've really enjoyed the 5 minutes I spend around you 3-4 times a year. Please don't try to convert us sinners like your wife does. How bout that Psalm 69?"

Haha, Maria - that letter is perfect!! rofl.gif The office I work in is VERY religious, and there was one guy (who eventually got fired!), he tried to convert me every single day - without a word of a lie. He even sent me a "Religion: Truth and Lies" book... of course, published by his church. I could have really used your help!! lol

Did he come to work everyday riding a bicycle, with his name clipped on his crisp white shirt?

We call them "mormans" here in the states. :)


Is this the same office where your boss chews you out? Ummmm.... yea, there's a real fine "christian" example...



In the 4 years we've been together, FI's sister comes to town 3-4 times per year, and only *one* time did she actually call him when she was in town and then came to spend the night. We found out that the only reason she did it was to "convert" him, so for the entire night, I wouldn't leave him alone with her because I knew she wouldn't jump him about religion in front of me... :)

Why would she ask everyone to do that? Shouldn't a letter of encouragement come from the heart? Why would she want to force ppl to do this? If I got a letter from someone that was "forced" to send it by someone else, I would just throw it away...

 

 

I love your letter! lol

Well, she's a little "moody" about things... For example, we had a family brunch last weekend to celebrate their mom's birthday, and she and her husband came to town for it. She was fine when we got there, and 5 minutes later when everyone sat down at the table for brunch, she started clenching her lips and acted very sullen. We found out that she was pissed because there weren't enough chairs for the entire family, so her grown daughter sat at the breakfast bar right behind the dinner table (still fully able to converse with everyone!)...

Oh yes, it's the very same place. Most of them didn't know I'm not Christian, which I don't think needs to be in the workplace anyways - but somehow this guy knew and wouldn't give up. I told him I have made my own spiritual choices, just as he has. But he wouldn't accept that, my choices were the "wrong" ones. mmmk...
