Bridezilla, Not Mom-Zilla

I'm not taking sides since it's not my problem and I don't even know the whole truth (story). However, I can kind of feel for the future-mom-in-law. I know people are calling her mom-zilla etc but her e-mail is not actually rude, wording-wise. I've seen worse, hey, I've said worse than that. She's just a pissed off mother of the house, and truthfully, I would be extra pissed if my guest (it doesn't matter if it's family or friends or strangers) wake up late, picky about his/her food (I would actually have the courtesy to ask, so don't say it before I ask, you know the rules. If you are brought up by a proper set of parents, not monkeys), spend more than what she gives and so on.

The future bride should have some sort of basic courtesy, if not manners. You are becoming one of the family, so act nice and responsible. Making the private e-mail, that should stay private (and confidential, mind you. Do you want your own private e-mails to be shared with 100s of people you don't know. You know it's going to come back and bite you in the ass, you bitch), viral is not endearing you to anyone, even to your husband-to-be (especially him). So, what do you guys think? Here's the story:

subject: your lack of manners

Here are a few examples of your lack of manners:

When you are a guest in another's house, you do not declare what you will and will not eat - unless you are positively allergic to something.

You do not remark that you do not have enough food.

You do not start before everyone else.

You do not take additional helpings without being invited to by your host.

When a guest in another's house, you do not lie in bed until late morning in households that rise early - you fall in line with house norms.

You should never ever insult the family you are about to join at any time and most definitely not in public. I gather you passed this off as a joke but the reaction in the pub was one of shock, not laughter.

You regularly draw attention to yourself. Perhaps you should ask yourself why. No one gets married in a castle unless they own it. It is brash, celebrity style behaviour.

I understand your parents are unable to contribute very much towards the cost of your wedding. (There is nothing wrong with that except that convention is such that one might presume they would have saved over the years for their daughters' marriages.)

If this is the case, it would be most ladylike and gracious to lower your sights and have a modest wedding as befits both your incomes.

One could be accused of thinking that Heidi Withers must be patting herself on the back for having caught a most eligible young man. I pity Freddie.
