“My step-brother is an unapologetic drug addict. They ruin literally every family function, but my stepmom throws tantrums if they’re not invited, so we all just have to watch it.

I feel your pain, bro. I stopped hosting events because I have too many nice things for them to steal, but if I had just dis-invited them, it would have been a whole big family drama thing.”

“The woman my cousin had just married stole a Costco-sized box of individually wrapped Cheez-Its packages from our garage. I just happened to notice they were gone when putting food in the fridge.

Asked about it publicly, she locked up, started stuttering, and went to get them out of her car. She returned with the excuse, “I thought these were mine. I have a box just like them at home.”

“Last year, my husband’s grandma hosted Thanksgiving dinner at her house and asked us to provide the turkey (not even the worst part)

We had to go to spend Thanksgiving with my husband’s dad’s side that morning, so we dropped the turkey off on our way to his dad’s house. His grandma said that they would be eating at 4.

We arrived back at his grandma’s house around 3:45, and everyone had already eaten all the food. Including the entire turkey.”

Five years later, they are still together, but I haven’t seen her in 4 years, 11 months, and 29 days.”

“This isn’t an isolated thing, but if someone doesn’t show up for Thanksgiving or Christmas, we automatically check the inmate records at the county jail. It’s happened a few times that someone’s absence is accounted for by an arrest and/or jail stay.

ETA: in 2016, my brother was a no-show for Christmas, and we checked the jail’s website. We saw our unique last name on their roster and assumed he’d been arrested. Turns out it was my uncle. I never did ask my brother where he was that year.”

“We were hosting Thanksgiving and prepared all the food ourselves, and my mom spent all morning cooking and baking. My aunt, uncle, and cousins arrive right before dinner and walk in with a White Castle case and say they just stopped to eat a few minutes ago. We had prepared Thanksgiving just for them, and they decided that they wanted White Castle instead.”
