Extended family can be a real toss-up, some people are blessed with the coolest aunts and uncles imaginable, people you would choose to hang out on your own accord. While others are related to their own worst nightmares, and have to figure out how to navigate the politics of family gatherings without escalating complex emotional dynamics.
AITA for dumping wine on my aunt to get her out of a wedding?
I have an EXTREMELY dramatic, selfish, and b*tchy family. Imagine 20 Karen’s each with handfuls of expired coupons all complaining to the same manager who is too nice to tell them to f*ck off. That’s my mother with her 10 siblings and their 10 spouses. Oh and did I mention they are all strict Catholics? I generally have nothing to do with the lot of them but for my cousin who is an absolute gem I would happily wage war against the Karen’s single handedly.
