She Loved Making Her Apartment Smell Like Cinnamon During Fall, but When Her Allergic Mother-in-Law Came By Unannounced, She Found Herself Being Labeled Inconsiderate 

A young woman recently went online to ask if she should never have her beloved cinnamon scent in her apartment because her mother-in-law says she’s allergic. Here’s her story.

She was an autumn girl

“I love fall,” the 21-year-old began. “Now that it’s getting close to September, I’ve pulled out the fall decorations and candles and am getting ready.”

“Something I’ve always done during this time of year is to make a mixture of nutmeg, apple, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice in water and boil it on the stove. It makes the house smell amazing, works like a humidifier, and puts me in the spirit of my favorite season.”

Her mother-in-law was allergic

The woman explained that there was just one problem. Her mother-in-law was “deathly allergic” to cinnamon.

Her allergy apparently didn’t stop her from eating cinnamon rolls, which she said were worth the upset stomach they caused, but at the same time, she wouldn’t go Christmas shopping in person because of all the cinnamon-scented products that were in the shops at that time of year.

She was mindful

The woman said that whenever she knew her mother-in-law was coming over, she’d ensure that she wasn’t boiling her mixture or burning cinnamon-scented candles. If the smell was in the air, she’d open the apartment windows to get rid of it.

One day, while the woman’s husband was out at work, there was a knock at the door. It was her mother-in-law; she’d dropped by for an unannounced visit.

The woman had put her favorite mixture to boil on the stove while she cleaned, so she stepped outside when she opened the door, thinking her mother-in-law had just popped up to drop something off or was looking for the woman’s husband.

Her mother-in-law asked her why she wasn’t inviting her in; she’d come over to hang out for awhile. The woman said that she was boiling cinnamon, as she hadn’t expected her mother-in-law to visit.

Her mother-in-law’s face fell, and she actually got angry. She told the woman that she shouldn’t even have anything cinnamon-scented in the house, let alone boil the stuff.

She tried to reason with her

When the woman protested that if she’d known her mother-in-law was coming, she wouldn’t have started her mixture, her mother-in-law rolled her eyes and walked away. At the top of the stairs, she stopped, turned around, and told the woman that it was rude and inconsiderate to boil cinammon just because of the smell, knowing full well how allergic she was.

She asked the internet

The woman asked the online community if her mother-in-law had a valid point.

“You’re aware of your mother-in-law’s allergy; you ensured that she wasn’t around when you put the cinnamon on the stove, and when she showed up unannounced, you stepped outside to meet her and shut the door behind you,” observed one. “You did everything right. Expecting you to never have cinnamon in your house again is overkill on your mother-in-law’’s part.”

“She is extremely entitled,” said another. “It is YOUR HOME. You have every right to make it smell however you want.”
