21 people share the incident that ruined their Thanksgiving this year.


Avoiding family drama and nodding and smiling along to humble brags or expert insults can be an extreme sport during the holidays, but when the stars align there can be one poorly timed event, comment, or potato recipe that completely ruins dinner...

Just when you think you deserve a medal for gracefully defending your political opinions, tipsy Uncle John and his cauldron of spiked cider might have different plans. So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What ruined your Thanksgiving this year?' people were ready to share the ill-fated incident that started a family feud, a passive aggressive battle in the kitchen, or a grade A mother-in-law meltdown. Remember: if you don't have anything nice to say about the unseasoned casseroles, bring your own hot sauce next time.


Woke up to $700 in fraudulent charges to my account and couldn't call the bank. On top of being stuck at home I had something to stress me out even though I know it's easily taken care of. - Ohiocitybandit42


Tooth infection that spread. Went to dentist yesterday to get antibiotics and it ballooned across my face overnight. So here I am, sitting in ER triage with a 101.3 fever and a face that hurts like hell - teeksquad


I asked for the address and never got a response. Responds 4 hours later: “Ok… well we already ate and everyone left… so just stay home and eat there.” Go on Ig and see the family pics. Thanks dad. That’s. That’s nice. - kimjongk80


Girlfriend broke with me last night so I've been spending the entire Thanksgiving trying to act like it doesn't bother me - Zestyclose-Ant-2496


Big dinner. Turkey. Stuffing. Mash potatoes. Corn bread. The whole 9 yards. A colleague's daughter says she has a stomach ache and doesn't feel well. Gut feeling is making me suspicious. We sit down. She gets up and proceeds to vomit all over the floor. Thankfully she missed the table.

Just all on the floor. Poor kid had a stomach virus she didn't know about. She didn't eat much after that. We spent 10 minutes cleaning it up. Sadly nobody wanted to have the stuff after that. I was sad cause it was amazing. - BM_gamer36


A bunch of people who wouldn't get out of my damn kitchen. Because I'm a guy all the old women think I can't do anything. Well, meemaw, we still got three pounds of your dry a*s potatoes but nothing I made has leftovers. - DiscipleOfMurphy


My wife’s sh*thead cousins joined us. One of them was unexpected. Didn’t ruin it but it would have been much more enjoyable without them. - wean169


On my way to my sister's, my son who is 4 complained about a headache. We get to my sister's, he plops on the couch, he cries about his head some more. I pick him up and he pukes all over me, the floor and on the dinner table. Luckily the food wasn't out so no-one else's Thanksgiving took a big hit. He's up running around now at home... toddlers are wild - matrose9


Went to my boyfriend’s family thanksgiving for the first time this year. On the way out I slipped off the first stair into some mud. Definitely one of the more embarrassing things I’ve done. - Katate18


I announced I'm pregnant and the first thing my aunt said was 'no wonder you look so fat' - sagelface


Halfway through eating my first plate it started to feel like someone punched me in the gut. Damn you apple cider, damn you. - Clcooper423


Slicing my hand open whilst trying to open the damn cranberry sauce - thetriplem21


My sister (who’s house it was at) had an edible before the food was even ready and then retreated to her room due to being too high and started hinting for people to leave. - Confident_Beautiful9


My relative’s dog ate the surface of our pumpkin pie and an entire package of bread rolls - KanonTheMemelord


Dog got out leading to a two hour search and a cold dinner. - welltriedsoul


Food poisoning. I made an elaborate stew last night. We were going to go to the first family Thanksgiving in a long time (today) and my husband and I had his and her explosions in our bathrooms. We're just now feeling a little better. - Garysuhnise


A judgmental dietitian who bulldozed the menu. There are 364 other days in the year for health consciousness. Let me have my carbs and sodium - Merganser228


Didn't remove the bag of organs inside the Turkey. My mother in law took one bite, threw up, and had to stop eating. Now we are all awkwardly sitting around trying to find something entertaining to watch on Netflix. HELP! - LivingKaleidoscope32


I realize this is small potatoes, but we didn’t have enough mash to go around. - Sybrandus


I zested my thumb. - aspophilia


Stepped off the damn high curb at my uncle's house, and twisted my ankle real bad. Stupid clumsy old people sh*t IRL. - AlgoRhythMatic
