Woman Thinks Mother-In-Law Poisoned Her, Follows Professional Advice And It Backfires

We've seen petty onion-based arguments with mother-in-laws, but this is a whole 'nother level. In this advice column, a woman was suspicious that her mother in law was trying to poison her.

If your mother-in-law is crazy enough to be a serial poisoner, maybe you should be wary of your husband as well.

After my husband and I returned home, he became wracked with diarrhea, but I was not ill at all. In the morning I told him that I had switched the horseradish and au jus. He looked at me with such hatred in his eyes that I knew he had known all along what his mother was up to. His only words were to accuse me of poisoning him!
