When I first met MIL, her living room and bedroom furniture was about 20 years old and she was moaning about it being old fashioned. She moaned for TEN years, so it was thirty years old. She then bought a new bedroom suite and offered the old one to everyone. No one wanted it of course. She stored it in her garage. She didn't want it, but she wouldn't part with it.

Meanwhile OSIL got divorced and married again. She moved into a new home and had no furniture but even she refused the old stuff... So MIL gave her the new. MIL had had it less than a month in her own home, and was still paying for it, when it was moved to SIL's. MIL put her old stuff back and began to moan again...
