Whenever my in-laws visit they speak to their son (my hubby) in their native language even though they all speak fluent English. Not only this, but when need be they also whisper to him in it.
I don’t understand their language, so the whispering is complete overkill!
I’ve discussed how I feel about all of this with my hubby for over a decade now, and of course he has tried occasionally to make them understand how isolated I feel when they do this- but he himself still speaks in their language to them when they start!
Unfortunately I’ve begun laughing uncontrollably when my hubby and his parents start whispering and my laughter is making everyone feel uncomfortable.
How does one become more tolerant of these sorts of situations? I mean it never impacts me in other settings, however, in my own home it just feels a bit suffocating.
They don’t want me to walk out of the room as that is disrespectful, yet my laughter is even more disruptive.
How does one maintain their composure during silly situations like these rather than actually laughing at people so obviously- please help before I setup a YouTube channel dedicated to my in-laws?
