Why don’t you quit trying to think of ways to “piss people off”, eat your turkey, watch some football, and enjoy the day with your family?
Does anyone else think this is a massive asshole move going to a family function looking to pick a political fight?
Whn the condervatives in my family start blathering on about god-knows-what, I excuse myself and go enjoy some time with my nieces while they’re still young.
Or, you could start a fight and spray bad feelings all over the room.
Normally yes, it would be an asshole move, but my in-laws have been dishing the shit to me and I’ve been quiet and HAVE shut up, but no longer will I take it.
They attack my beliefs constantly and I’m going to give it right back ten-fold. I’ve sat back and numerous times said “I won’t get into it with you”… and their response is “Yeah that’s because you have nothing to say.” And my 3 and 6 year old daughters are witness to this.
Tell me…Isn’t it an asshole move also to attack your own son in laws beliefs while he visits??
It is, absolutely. I’m certainly not taking their side.
But, in this case…be the bigger man.
Save the arguments for here.
If you truly can’t stand these people, then have T’giving at home with your kids (who I’m sure you would rather be with, anyway.)
Perhaps ‘asshole’ was too strong; if it was, I apologize.
But, in my humble opinion…let the babies have their bottle.
I disagree. life is far too short to sit back and not say anything when people repeatedly attack you about your beliefs. i say give it back like you get it. just try to have a discussion and not get angry but if they continue to push and prod you, i don’t think you have any reason to just take it. Fuck that. Give it back. her parents should be mature enough to take it and if they’re not then hey, fuck them.
