We celebrated Xmas on the 22nd, btw.
First, SO upset his mother by parking at the end of the driveway. She asked him to park near the house. He said he wanted to stay where he was since he had to leave for work and didn’t want to have to ask four other cars to clear out so he could get out of the driveway. So, he reasoned, it makes sense if I just stay where I am. So his mom said, “Ok, that makes sense.” Oh wait, that’s not what she said. She stomps off to finish making a salad. Her face was beet red and she was pissed. She started ripping romaine lettuce ferociously. She threw the end of the romaine heart on the counter and it bounced off. She was crying and muttering. Then she started stomped around saying, “Fuck this. Merry tucking Christmas. Call me when you’re all ready to eat!” and slammed the basement door. Her mother, SO’s grandma, said she was just gonna leave bc she didn’t want to deal with drama. SO had to go in the basement and tell his mom to calm down and come back upstairs so her mother wouldn’t leave. His mom said he was disrespectful for not moving the Prius. She’s a loose cannon and flips out often.
Then SO’s sister and her boyfriend had to leave to go pick up his 21 yr old sister at a mall two hours away. Her on again/off again boyfriend left her at the mall with their 2 1/2 yr old and 2 week old infant bc he got pissed off. He took off in the car, with the diaper bag, and didn’t answer his phone. Finally after two hours, she called the house and said they needed a ride. The trip took 5 hours in total bc they needed to go pick up car seats. So, his sisters and her kids weren’t there for most of the day.
Then his 21 yr old sister spent the night texting and fighting with her boyfriend, the one who abandoned her at the mall. She fell asleep without setting her alarm bc she was so distracted. She was two hours late to work the next day and got fired.
Did your celebration go off without a hitch (or was it a bitch)?
