Yes, but WHY is the chick crossing the road?

I give people cookware all the time, but not anything I would ever want returned. I gave my newly separated BIL a bunch of stuff including two really nice sauce pans. He can raise earthworms in them for all I care...

I guess I was just amazed at her audacity. After all, I hadn't given the pots to her, they were a loan.

But then, I always feel that you should respect other's property. Putting a chick in a stockpot didn't feel like respect to me.

But different strokes for different folks.

Leolady, I know entirely how you feel.

I have invested money into my kitchen equipment. Now, I won't say that it's A LOT of money, but, money is money. I have some professional-grade equipment, and a lot of tools, "gadgets", etc. I tend to get finicky about how my stuff is used. Many times, I've come home and realized that my MIL has been "mishandling" and "misusing" my tools, or just using them in a manner I don't think is appropriate. I'll usually give her a warning or two about how I feel, but she does as she pleases. After a few "infractions" on my feelings about my equipment, I will go and hide the piece for awhile.

I realize that this is mostly just my "regimented training" in the culinary world, and that my MIL was brought up extremely poor and had to "make do" with EVERYTHING. I still just don't like to see my tools used in a manner that I don't want them used.

Neither one of us are willing to compromise on these issues, so it just boils down to a simmering stale-mate of me waiting until she decides that she wants to live somewhere else.

Someone who had to make do should respect your nice equipment even more than you do. Given that you have told her your feelings, this is simply passive-aggressive behavior on your MIL's part. Probably because she is not used to being the implied subordinate in the house.
