Your Turn

Do you have one of those relatives? You know, the one you would never be seen in public with but are forced to spend time with over the holidays?

No, I *am* that relative.

Yes, we don't speak because she stole my class ring.

AnonyMouse said...

Got ya beat, Lotta...my no-good cousin stole my class ring AND my ex-ex-ex-ex-ex-ex-ex-boyfriend's pinkie ring. Took my eco-friendly hemp bag, too.

Sugar said...

Did they eat your PB&J Sammy too?

VIPblonde said...

I have relatives that go to the store and get paper AND plastic!! I, of course, only use reusable bags

Sugar said...

I don't embarrass easily. If someone I'm with is making an ass of themselves, that's not my problem.
Besides, the inappropriate are much more fun to be around!

AnonyMouse said...

@VIP...do they put the paper bag inside the plastic bag? :)

The Dude said...

not a big fan of most of my relatives, I am sure they feel the same about me.

AnonyMouse said...

@Sugar That slut ate my PB&J sammy, too!

Seven of Eleven said...

@Mouse, was she a 40 year old virgin?

AnonyMouse said...

@7: 37.5! Such a slut!

Moriah said...

I'm that relative.

lostathome said...

Yeah. They had sex on prom night and I didn't so I'm still mad about that.

WareCat said...

i love my family!

Oh God yes--my sister-in-law. What an epic bitch. I tried to like her when my brother-in-law married her. I swear, I really tried. But she's unlikeable. I've been dreading Christmas all year. She'll make sure everyone is as miserable as she is.

I don't give a fuck who I'm seen in public with. If someone is being a dick head, that's on them. If it's someone close, like family, I will tell them as much. In a nicer way though.

Del Riser said...

Just the reverse actually. I have an uncle that I could pretend wasn't with me/us if we were in public, but at family gatherings he's just right there being his assholey self.

Renoblondee said...

Luckily, no.

Jenny Ferrall said...

@Seven of Eleven - it is not possible, according to Miley, to be a 40 year old virgin. However, 40 is the age when women stop having sex.

Had a freaky cousin show up and decamp in my guest room last weekend. Longest 3 days of my existence. He spent all his time photographing "chem trails" over the house, he's documenting them for his website! : /

Alexa Rose said...

No thank God. Almost had a brother in law like that, but they didn't get married.

Honey, I have a whole family of them! But nobody forces me to do anything, so I refuse to spend time with them over the holidays. We usually make a point of going overseas for the holidays, or working through (always a nice excuse not to be guilt-tripped into doing anything we don't want).

My mother in law, crazy ass evil irish woman. I refuse to she her after her last 'episode' it's been 8 months, and my life is so much better without her twist self in it

Unknown said...

W WareCat - where the eff did you find that trailer? Wow. I actually want to watch it.

Erik said...

Yes: All of them.

WareCat said...

I hear ya sweetpeanc: the kind of people who grunt at you over the salt & pepper shakers. That's why my hubby and I are going to Bali for the week before, and after Christmas, and back for NYE. No family BS! And the nice ones we'll see before & after anyway.

Blake : me too! When I was single, following my mother screaming at my step mum and my dad, I boycotted Xmas and spent it with other Xmas "orphans". It was the best ever. Sort of do trips, work etc if things are hairy with certain family members. They get crazy? We get airfares.

There's the family member we keep in the dungeon rocky road?
Or there's Mongo

My uncle is schizophrenic, and lacking adequate teeth. He loves going to Kentucky Fried Chicken. Let's just say I shall never darken their door again this lifetime after joining him for a meal. I did not eat, thank goodness. Glad he enjoyed himself...
