Official 2019 bitch about family/holiday drama thread

Yeah, every year that goes by—-I understand why my grandfather spent so much time at his Rotary club.  My dad was an American legion kinda guy.

Better late than never.

First Christmas spent with gf’s family in California. No pics- of any of them.

Gf’s dad does well and her mom has been living glamorously off her half since they split ~10 years back. It seems her decade long vacation might be winding down as she’s mentioned looking for work that entails something other than her current regimen of yoga, book clubs and traveling the world. We spend Christmas morning with her.

Gf is down to earth, independent and thoughtful. Probably spent ~$600-700 on gifts for her twin, younger sister and her mom.

I watched Gf’s twin as she realized that Gf got an extra present (a pair of leggings). That shit was not going to fly. Like a child, she grabbed the leggings, held them up and asked mom when they could go get her a pair too. Never mind that she is 25 years old, recently had to have her mom pay off her overdue $5k credit card bill or the fact that she gifted her sisters nothing but $15 gift cards (and her mom nothing).

Dinner the next evening with dad went just as well. Since twin just moved back home from the east coast where she did not have/need a car, she’s now in need of some wheels. Great. Dad has bought brand new Toyota and Subaru for other two daughters in last two years when they needed a car. But naturally that’s not good enough for twin. Dipshit is talking about taking out a loan for the difference between the cost of a brand new Toyota and her desired Audi. Dad laughs at the notion but didn’t do enough to slam the door closed so we all get to watch twin try to charm her way into a luxury vehicle the entire evening.

I love my gf and she is incredibly normal considering the circumstances. But fuck this shit already.

'Blah, blah, blah...I'm dating a rich 25-yr-old California girl who has a twin sister...blah blah blah.'
She's probably ugly as sin, but with that green charisma.

My sister is 43 and still pulls that shit even though our parents havent bought me anything in years because I don't know.. I am fucking adult who takes care of his own shit. 

When she hears about me purchasing a TV, car, laptop, or whatever she runs to them demanding they get her the same thing. She is such a fucking beating.

Can I pause to brag about my daughter? Most of yall know she was a sergeant in the Army. She's out now and going to college. Lives in an apartment about a mile away from me. Sometime around Thanksgiving I notice she was driving her girlfriends car and I asked what was wrong with her truck. She said she needed the break pads replaced. I didn't really give it another thought.

Fast forward to the week before Christmas. I called to see if I could borrow her truck to move a table. She said her truck had no breaks right now and she was saving up to get them fixed.I asked how she was getting to work. She was walking. I told her she could just borrow my suv (I have a work van so I wouldn't be out of a vehicle). She said she was fine walking. I told her I would pay for the breaks. She told me no.

Finally after an hour of arguing I convinced her let me pay for any over what she had saved up. 

I sure as hell wasn't that mature at 23.

But props to your daughter for having her shit together.

Technically, the truck had a bad break with the brakes going bad.

Daniel Craig’s accent in Knives Out is ludicrous, but otherwise that sounds like a nice day.

His accent is so ludicrous it’s actually great.

This started OK, but I was really hoping that you and your brother attempted to do the brake job and fucked it all up.

Anyway, is your daughter "out" out, or is she in the reserves/Guard?

Yikes.  I hope Uncle Sam is seeing that she gets the care that she needs. 

Mostly healed now. Mostly got out because it would have been a pretty big uphill battle to get back to Army readiness strength or whatever they call it.

 

Now using the GI bill to take about 18 hours a semester while working 40 hours a week.

Why did she have her brother kill himself? She just a bitch like that?

Seriously, that sucks. Hate that your friend is having to deal with something like that.

Can’t rep any more today but your daughter sounds like she kicks ass.  Hope my brats turn out that mature at that age.

So if you remember BIL that drinks too much from my previous posts.....he’s in the hospital now getting tests done because they thought he had MS or something terrible. Turns out he’s drank himself into partial paralysis. Hard to do when you hold down a full time job.

But this thread is about me, damnit. That house is going to be dry as a bone for every holiday gathering in the future. I’m happy to do it to help my BIL......bit it was the only thing saving my sanity with the rest of the crew.
