can i say im just so annoyed ugghhh... DH's cousin "P" broke up with his girl friend and at the time he was living about 1.5 hrs away from here now he's moved in with his mother and lives like 2 mins from us.. We have a 2 car garage and cousin "P" asked if he could store his motorcycle in our garage and he'd pay him monthly. I from jump street didnt think it was a good idea cause i could already see the issues it was going to cause.
DH's brother has a key to our garage and has had one for a while he sometimes fixes his car, DH car etc and BIL has all this tools in there. so Friday cousin "P" brings the bike and apparently its not working so he needs to order spark plugs. When i got home from a very long day from work, BIL was fixing his EX girlfriends car in my driveway, cousin "P was there working on the bike and another cousin "G" was there as well. so i pretty much had a full house and didnt expect it. I got pretty pissed since i told DH i my garage was not someone's personal mechanic shop.
So pretty much every day since friday they have been at my house working on this bike and Tuesday when i get back home from midwife appt BIL apparently invited one of his friends that i dont know to come and hang out while he works on the bike. I had already told DH that i didnt want people in my yard that i didnt know in and out of my garage.
so today was the last straw i get home from work and Cousin "P" comes by with cousin "G" at the same time as im outside and apparently BIL gave him the key to my garage because Cousin "P" forgot his keys in there. i have already told DH if i find out that BIL gives my keys to Cousin 'P" then im taking the key back, its the only key and if one of them loses it then we cant open the garage doors. DH thinks im over reating and i've told him apparently he cant say **** so im going to tell BIL if i find out that he gave my key to anyone then im taking his key away
DH is arguing since Cousin "P" is paying to store his bike he should have a key so he can come and get it when he pleases. I disagree, that is my personal property and if he wanted that kind of freedom then he should of rented a storage unit. am i wrong on how im thinking? am i overreating?
if you've read it this long i appreciate it
Not over reacting! I would have gone off. It is one thing to have people come over unannounced when I am home, but to have people just be there when we aren't home. I wouldn't have even told DH, I would have just started yelling.
they dont come in the house ever and BIL doesnt even have the key to the house garage isnt attached to the house but its getting me angry i dont want them to think my house is going to be there new hang out.
UGH! I would have lost it too. All those people in your garage, with your stuff, trashing your house up? Fixing cars? What if they spill oil on your driveway and stuff? I don't think you're over-reacting at all.
and on top of it we just redid our driveway this summer so i was angry about that. but DH only see it as well im getting money so he doesnt care and its his family so he doesnt care., im fuming and we've been fighting for days about this and every day seems like a new thing

I don't think you are over reacting either! I would be pissed off. It's one thing to call you ahead of time and see if it ok to come over (while you are home) and work on the bike, but to just come and go and bring guests?
im happy iim not overreating..dh cant see how this is a problem...he just shows up and doesnt call to ask iif its OK
