    The Thanksgiving Drama/Popcorn Moments/Etc. Thread

    Let's hear stories from your family dinners/get-togethers. All the drama, popcorn moments, soap opera scenes, purse fights, oh-no-they-didn't moments, and did-you-see-what-i-just-saw moments.

    So my boss at my housekeeping job - he and his gf invited me last night at work to go out with them for Thanksgiving dinner. I'm off next week - my work rotation at my store ends Wednesday morning, so I'm free Thursday. So I accepted. We're eating out on Thanksgiving, because as it turns out, a couple acquaintance of theirs (whom I shall refer to under the generic names of "Richard" and "Lisa") basically invited themselves over to my boss and his gf's for Thanksgiving dinner without my boss or his gf actually inviting Richard or Lisa over.

    Last year, for Christmas, my boss and his gf had Richard and Lisa over for Christmas, along with their two kids. My boss's gf slaved over the meal for days on end, preparing all the sides, etc. And then, cooking the bird/ham/whatever - literally is an all day affair from the crack of dawn onward.

    Richard, Lisa and their family basically ate for an hour and a half, and then jetted - not helping with the dishes or clean up or anything. My boss's gf told me last night - basically Richard and Lisa assume that since my boss and his gf have me as their housekeeper, that that basically absolves them of helping with the huge after-dinner clean-up, etc. True enough, it actually is **my** job, and I don't mind doing it. But my boss's gf's point is that if you're coming over, and not supplying food (a side dish or whatever) or helping with the costs of putting this dinner on, and all you're doing is coming over, eating, getting fat and happy, and then leaving my boss's gf and I to fend for ourselves with the massive cleanup afterwards - just no.

    It smacks too much of, "OK, we got what we wanted, OK, bye now."

    So we're going out to eat on Thanksgiving - no cooking, no cleanup, and (what my boss and his gf like) if you're coming with us, you have to pay your's and your family's own way. Everybody's paying for their own way, including tip.



    Is it just me, or is that just way super unclassy to just willy-nilly invite yourself over to someone else's house for a mega-dinner like Thanksgiving? Just wow, really folks?

    Just my immediate family, not much drama except for my dad's usual yelling and screaming. We will be lucky to have any dinner at all this year.

    When my father was alive, any get-together could turn ugly. Even after he sobered up, it didn't take much for him to go ballistic. One holiday, he and his brother-in-law got into it and my father hit him so hard, my uncle flew over the hood of the car. Every family time was filled with tension. One holiday, after my father was gone, my brother who was high on drugs, got tired of waiting for dinner to be serverd so he picked up the turkey in his hands, pulled it apart and started to eat. It was my first year of college and I had come home for the holiday. I remember going outside and thinking how I had to get away from these loons.
    But those days are gone. I have my own family and friends and holiday meals are happy, joyous times with lots of laughter, fellowship and good food. Our home is always full at holidays...it's the place everyone wants to be. I'm happy about that.
    Everyone wants to be heard. No one wants to listen.

    ^that last part is nice to hear Sixthson. Congrats on rising above the muck.


    One memorable T-day dinner was at my dad's girlfriend's son's apt.
    Tiny little galley kitchen. I was apparently the one designated to make my famous "drunk turkey".
    It's marinated in red wine and seasonings and then basted with a homemade Jack Daniel's sauce.

    Dad's gf insisted making her own smaller turkey breast in case people didn't want something so "exotic" as mine.
    With 5 people in a tiny kitchen and no one listening to each other, all doing their own thing, somehow the electric oven was set to broil and never fully cooked the turkeys. We had to settle on piecing out the legs and wings and just ate all the side dishes.

    After the ordeal was done, his brand new, clean kitchen looked like the dinner had exploded. There was even food on the cupboard above the refrigerator.

    We have no thanksgiving nightmares...maybe Canadian thanksgiving dinners are not as stressful.

    As for the people who invite themselves to dinner....I have no idea why someone would have acquaintances like that, that they would call friends.

    But our rules are hard and fast. We will not let any company clean up after dinner. Period. We always appreciate their offers and they know that we will always decline the help.

    No memorable moments here. Just think it is a stupid holiday. I would as soon have a Marie Callender TV Turkey Dinner.

    Nothing to really write home about this year. Just got back from dinner. Just my boss, his gf, and I.

    We went to Golden Corral at a far northern Dallas-Fort Worth suburb town called The Colony. We came in to a jam-packed house. Everyone amongst the general public around us behaved themselves. I did have one guy that sat behind us - in order to get by his table, on the way to our table, I had to pass by this guy's big-ass scooter that he literally brought in with him, and he had it standing up leaning next to his table. Really, bro? Really? Like, you couldn't have left that out in the car, maybe? Just sayin'...

    But I did get around it fairly well enough. I just had to be extra careful.

    We each tipped the waiter $10 bucks apiece, all 3 of us. Very nice dinner.

    After dinner, my boss wanted to go the Walmart next door. Thankfully, his gf's and my unified cries of "Oh Hell No!" put a stop to that. His gf's like, "You're going to be in there until the end of time trying to what? Save, maybe $20 bucks on something? No..." We drove right by the front of the store. Between the grocery half entrance and general merchandise half entrance, there were literally 4 cruisers from Colony Police and 4 SUVs from Denton County Sherriff's Office.

    No drama at my house today, just a good dinner, and good conversation.

    My seven-year-old niece got a bit wound up after dinner and wanted to race around the house. We calmed her down. That's it.

    I usually don't talk about my family much. It bores half of the audience, and the other half feels I'm mocking them because I have a non-dysfunctional family that actually enjoys each other's company and looks forward to spending time with each other. "My mother only calls when she's drunk and I don't talk to my father since he broke my jaw ten years ago, so how about shutting the fuck up about your fucking nicey-nice, Ozzie-and-Harriet pukefest of a family?"

    I can't remember ever having any actual conflict on Thanksgiving, but I can remember a couple of crazy ones my grandmother caused.

    One year, she kept Thanksgiving dinner held up while she asked my oldest sister to take her to some free dinner they were giving away from the senior center or something like that. We had the family gathered and a great dinner ready, but waited an hour or two for her to be taken over there to get her free dinner. In hindsight, it was one of the signs that dementia was coming on, but she had always been so eccentric, we just thought it was stubbornness.

    Hmm, there was one year when my uncle and my mom's husband at the time got into a big argument. That was kind of a rough patch for us but it was several years ago. We've moved on thankfully and my mom is with someone much better for her.

    Oh, and there was the year when a lot of my immediate family didn't go to my grandmother's house for Thanksgiving as we always have. Some of us were working or visited other families instead. My grandmother surprised us for Christmas by not cooking anything at all ..except coleslaw, I believe, which none of us eat. So everyone showed up as normal for Christmas expecting a ton of food and there was basically nothing other than what we'd brought. It was actually quite hilarious, though, and is one of the many great memories I have with my family.

    We don't really have too much drama as a family. Today was really wonderful.
