With the holidays coming up, I figured the stories about absurd family members would start rolling in, so I thought I’d get that started. My parents are the type of people who will go on vacation in a different country, and buy something readily available in their home country because the seller is their same religion, just got out of the hospital, has 16 kids, has cancer, and is very polite. This is not my spin, these were the reasons my parents gave me for buying this absurd product at an absurd price and then carrying it home which took up half of a suitcase. They also, on another trip, bought some dumb trinkets from a shop because they were told they were handmade by some impoverished orphans who were dying of cancer. I shit you not.

In response to a confession. He lives about an hour away with his girlfriend. We’ve been separated for 3 years now and the family I’m staying with (in a way) took my side when we first split up. I’m living with them because I just moved states, Hawaii to Colorado, because it’s cheaper here than where we were but I wouldn’t have ever have been able to save up enough to move here and immediately start out in my own place. They’re doing me a huge favor... but her habits specifically make me feel like I have to do things like that in order to not offend her until I’m able to move ds and I out on our own.

Been out all day and haven’t eaten. Asked fil if it was a “fend for yourself night” and mil overheard and said it’s a leftovers night because she made so much food last night there’s no room in the fridge for anything else. I don’t like any of what she made last night so I’m starving in our room hoping she’ll get away from the kitchen soon so I can make some top noodles or something =\

My MIL is soo overbearing. It's awful. She's not a mean person, she just has no boundaries. And very very bossy. I can hardly deal with her.

In response to a confession. Do you not see or hear or read the news? Black people are being killed, thrown in jail, arrested for no reason, beat the fuck up...etc. by white people.

Sis was going to host Thanksgiving. Fine, but she expected me to invite all the extended family over to her house. So I did, and I told everyone what to bring. Then I confirmed with sis to find out what time people should show up. She tells me it's now being held at her MIL's house. She tells me this TODAY. And I had to call her; she did NOT call me to let me know. I believe she wins flake of the year award, Holiday Edition.

We can't ever go on vacation without guilt and drama from dh's family. We go anyway, but it's super annoying. A few years ago, DH mentioned to his mom that we were planning a trip to New Orleans. Next thing we know, the whole fam damnily, 15+ people, have planned a trip at the same time to the New Orleans time share and we're being guilted because we're not staying there with them. So, the next time, we went to Savannah and didn't tell a soul until afterwards, and OMG, the guilt trips we were sent on for not visiting his family in Atalanta. I have so many more examples, it's not even funny. Is it so bad that, when I'm on vacation, I want to stay in a hotel where I can screw my husband and visit new places, just the two of us, with no family involved? We can't even post gratuitous vacation photos on Facebook like normal people without 12 family members asking why we didn't invite them/visit them. Does anyone else's family do this? There's just no boundaries.

I recently lost a lot of weight-and gained a lot of confidence! Some people do not like that.
