Or maybe I just need to vent a little.
I get along great with my wife's family for the most part, but about a year ago, one of her sisters (who was married at the time), hooked up with this doofus she met on the internet, dumped her husband, and she and the internet guy moved to the same town as us. Anyway, the guy is a complete deadbeat, doesn't work, and I just don't have the slightest thing in the world in common with him. And to top it all off, my sis-in-law is 5 months pregnant... no, he still doesn't work. I don't know what the heck he does all day, but I have very little respect for the guy. He's pretty much an unproductive putz and the worst part is he seems pretty comfortable in his putz-hood.
Anyway, he saw some of the deer that my wife and I brought home this year, so his momma is buying him a .270 for Christmas because he wants to learn to hunt. So, guess who will now be expected to teach him: me. Basically, come next October, my options will be either take this moron hunting or be the A-hole bro-in-law/son-in-law. You gotta understand that one of my wife's family dynamics is that everybody in the family, married in or born in, pretends that everybody else is the greatest, most wonderful, brilliant person in the world... even if they're a deadbeat with a pregnant wife and doesn't work. That's really not how I was raised, but for the most part I can play along, to extent I guess. Anyway... advice? Words of wisdom?
I really don't want to take this guy hunting. In fact, I want to spend as little time as possible around him.
