We all have family members we don't understand completely. Their actions are uncanny, their ways weird, and you just can't seem to decode what they are thinking. As long as it's harmless, you can still figure out a way to accommodate their quirks. But when some actions just can't be ignored anymore, what do you do? A woman took to Reddit to share an anecdote about her snoopy mother-in-law, and how she took matters into her hands.

Talking about her mother-in-law, the user u/itsbettertobelucky wrote on Reddit, "For some weird reason, my MIL really wants to go into our bedroom whenever she comes over. On one occasion I followed her as she went upstairs (i was going to get something for my child as the bedrooms are upstairs) and she walked past the bathroom on the main floor and up the stairs behind it. She didn’t hear me and I caught her walking straight into my room and rifling through bills on my dresser. She denied snooping (even though I’d just watched her do it) and said she was just going to use our bathroom because she couldn’t find the other ones. She walked right past the one on the main floor and another one in the upstairs hallway to go into our bedroom. Since that happened, I installed an exterior doorknob that requires a key on our bedroom door and one on the door to our office/spare bedroom." Nothing changed though. "However, she’s still always “forgetting” where the bathroom is and trying the bedroom and office doors. This really ticks me off. My husband says that I just get annoyed at this because everything she does drives me crazy and since we’ve put locks on the rooms we don’t want her in, there isn’t really a problem anymore. Well over the holidays we had my in-laws over for dinner and before they came I was searching for the bedroom keys. We hadn’t used them in a while since we only lock the doors when MIL comes over. My husband told me we didn’t need to lock the doors since she wouldn’t try to get into the rooms and I insisted that she would because she loves to snoop."
