I feel as if we are missing some information here. If were talking about physically stepping on toes that's kinda silly and childish, last thing a grown man wants to be seen doing is playing a game of "footsie". Or are we talking about the other one?Either way It's kinda rude.

A complete explanation is required if you want feedback on this. Without that info, I'm more inclined to say, "Man up. Life ain't fair, get over it."

Well, why did the person let someone do it if you were going to do it? Next time do not offer.

Okay let me shed some light on whats going on. My father-in-law became handy-cap about two months ago. My mother-in-law and my wife and I been talking for the last few weeks about things. I was asked to help my mother-in-law out by building a ramp going into her house. Well after she asked the family members for help they all was too busy. They couldn't do it they said. She waited a month before asking me and yet they all said they didn't have time to do it. Then after that she asked me and I said Okay to it and we talked. Now after all this time no one wanted to do it BUT all a sudden last Wednesday she tells her oldest daughter (that her husband didn't have time at all before or was too busy to even come up to visit) about me going to build the ramp this weekend. Low and behold out of the blues her husband all a sudden says he'll come up and build the ramp after me and her mother (her mom is also my mother-in-law (her mom has 3 daughters), 2nd daughter being my wife) had talked and her mom wanted me to build it, no one else had wanted to do it for the last month and a half and her mother waited and waited then I offered then all a sudden she heard from her mom knowing her mom had someone picked and ready to do it. Yet her and her husband out of the blues knowing her mom had someone going to do the job, the two comes up and does the job. I'm am totally tick at the two.

You really can't control what people say or do. At least you didn't have to do it and there will be other opportunities for you to help...

All that should matter is that the man got the help he needed. Life is too short, move on and be happy it's covered.

Just let your Mother in law know that your willing to help, and leave it alone for now. Hopefully the ramp holds up,

I doubt anyone was trying to "dis" you . The only important thing really is that the man got his ramp. IMO

"handy-cap?"

 

 

 

 

Why did it take you so long to get around to doing it? 

 

 

Once you "talked about it" you should have done it. 

 

Then no one else would have had a month and a half or even two weeks to steal your thunder. 

 

Appears you set yourself up.

 

 

Besides, was it about helping, or was it about taking credit?
