An expectant mother has revealed that her in-laws insist on communicating through mouse figures that they are considering family and visibly upset that she will not participate in their bizarre behavior.
Reddit user Ihaveamouse problem opened up in a wild post about her tense relationships with her family's husband, and revealed that each mouse has its own background story and family relationships.
The 34-year-old said she had been with her husband for ten years, but things recently came to a head when her father-in-law said her unborn child would be his second grandchild – the first was their gigantic papier-mache mouse with the Timothy name.

The future mother shared her story about the & # 39;AmItheA ** hole& # 39; subreddit, insisting that her story & # 39; no parody is & # 39 ;. She explained that she even went so far as to get a new username so that no one would recognize her.
After her fellow Reddit users came to the conclusion that she was wrong, she turned to another subreddit to ask for advice on how to improve her situation with her husband and his family.
The woman said that she & # 39; still very in love & # 39; was on her 35-year-old husband, but she felt & # 39; lonely & # 39; and unsupported & # 39; after he failed to stand up for her during her recent quarrel with his parents.
& # 39; The relationship with his parents is tense. They have a number of mouse figures; they are made of different materials and one is a giant papier-mâché that bears the Timothy name, & she explained.
The Reddit user said the figurines are seen as part of the family & # 39; and each of them has its own character profile with background stories, personal preferences, and family relationships.

Creepy: What she finds most disturbing is the fact that they constantly speak in squeaky, high voices when the mice communicate with each other
What they find most disturbing is the fact that they constantly use the mice to communicate with each other and their guests.
& # 39; They will use a high tone and they will talk in a way that small children would use, & # 39; she explained. & # 39; For example, my husband's father will beep and say: & # 39; My stomach hurts, I'm hungry! & # 39; while I squeeze a mouse plush in my face.
& # 39; I have to answer the mouse and get it, not he, to eat. They do this constantly. In fact, the mice usually talk, not they. & # 39;
They will talk in a way that small children would use
The woman insisted that she did not act judiciously over the years, but she made it a point to speak to the person speaking and has never talked like a mouse & # 39 ;.
& # 39; His parents have noticed this and have often tried to force me into it & # 39 ;, she said. & # 39; They are visibly upset that I will not participate and I have several times pictures of & # 39; cool mice & # 39; data I didn't use.
& # 39; I understand it is likely that they will welcome me into the family, but I also love & # 39 ;, she admitted. & # 39; When they visit us, they force me to take them out of the closet and display them and I feel invaded by that. (At the same time, I feel stupid about the feeling that you have been invaded by lifeless objects.) & # 39;
After ten years of dealing with the strange behavior of her in-laws, she finally lost her temper when her father-in-law Timothy referred to him as his grandchild.
Indignation: the woman said she was snarling when her father-in-law said her unborn child would be his second grandchild – the first was their paper-mâché mouse Timothy
& # 39; Today it escalated when we announced that I am pregnant and my father-in-law replied that it would be great & # 39; to quickly have two grandchildren & # 39; (by the first, he meant Timothy), & # 39; she wrote.
& # 39; For the first time I got angry and said that he didn't have a grandchild yet and that my child could not be compared to a papier-mache mouse. They got very angry and I was shouted like Timothy because I didn't respect him. He called me stupid. & # 39;
The expectant mother said the conflict made her turn to Reddit for advice. Not only is her relationship with her parents-in-law tense, but she is also angry that her husband does not stand up for her.
& # 39; Instead of supporting me, my husband remained silent all the time and later told me that many people's stuffed animals talk and that he doesn't understand how tolerant I am in everything but this, & # 39; she said.
When she started to cry, her husband didn't even comfort her, and that's how she knows he was really upset.
& # 39; I have been very sad because I am a family-oriented person and I have always regretted not being included in his family & # 39 ;, she explained. & # 39; His parents have always acted against me, although I have endeavored to have a genuine interest in their lives and to build a bond with them. It is clearly even worse after my outburst.
& # 39; I feel lonely and insecure and I no longer know how to act or how I understand that I need him to do something! I don't even know what I want him to do exactly. & # 39;
Hard to handle: many Twitter users compared her story with a plot in a horror movie
She admitted that she is afraid that her husband will & # 39; reject her & # 39; because she & # 39; puts him in an uncomfortable situation & # 39; but at the same time, she has had enough of treating her in-laws.
& # 39; I'm afraid they are doing this to our child or feeling unloved, & # 39; she said. & # 39; So I'm looking for advice on how to deal with this situation. Do I have to raise the issue or accept the situation and try to avoid it? How should I deal with this when our child is born? & # 39;
I am afraid that they are doing this to our child or that they feel unloved
As expected, many Reddit users had questions for the woman, who answered many of them in the comment section of the message.
Some were convinced it should be a joke, but she insisted it wasn't, and said: & # 39; They are very serious about it. & # 39;
She also noted that her husband is trying to avoid & # 39; talk like a mouse because he knows how much it bothers her, but he still does it occasionally.
& # 39; This is also a point of conflict, & # 39; she explained. & # 39; Some childhood friends of his & # 39; play along. "He also has a half brother who is full! The parents' friends do not participate, but for some reason it is not done as often for them as for my nose. & # 39;
The viral Reddit messages from the woman have since been deleted, but the screenshots were shared on Twitter by @JakeMHS, who wrote: & # 39; You will not regret reading it, although you might shout. & # 39;
Many Twitter users compared her story to a plot in a horror movie, where a person tweeted to the director of & # 39; Get Out & # 39; and wrote: & # 39; Yo @ Jordan Peele is now making this movie. & # 39;
& # 39; Plot twist: she makes a mouse figure, & # 39; someone else said.
Others insisted that they take on Timothy and get rid of him once and for all.
& # 39; Timothy is a vessel of evil. It must be destroyed, & # 39; one Twitter user commented, while another tweeted: & # 39; She should kidnap and kill Timothy. The in-laws will report this to the police. The police will oblige the in-laws. Problem solved. & # 39;
People also had many theories about the attachment of the family to the mouse figures and why they never came to terms with the woman.
& # 39; Therapists often use stuffed animals when trying to get children to communicate traumas that have happened in their lives because it catches their attention and transfers it to an object, & # 39; explained a person. & # 39; This family needs to be institutionalized because they have taken it too far. & # 39;
& # 39; They don't like her, because SHE IS THEIR SECOND DAUGHTER-IN-LAW & someone else thought. & # 39; The better daughter-in-law is a mouse hiding somewhere, and the first wife of their son and the mother of Timothy. I'm sure the parents have a great relationship with that mouse / daughter-in-law. & # 39;
