    It's Always the Same At Family Functions

    I find family get togethers so boring and a waste of my time. Everytime when it is someone's birthday, the whole lot get together, and it is always the same old thing over and over and over...the men sit one side and watch rugby or cricket, the woman sit all in a circle in the...

    Always Have

    I dreaded family get-togethers as a child and do to this day. I can't relate to them...even though I am related TO them. To make matters worse,I have in-laws I can't stand too,now.

    My grandma yells at me

    for using cereal bowls for cereal, opening my own cereal at breakfast. She has threatened to send me to foster care which at this point would rather be at foster care then with them.

    Forced Bonding

    I find the whole concept of 'Family Time' pretty lame.  We always had dinner together as kids so I guess in a way that was our 'Family Time'.  But if either one of my parents had forced us to hang out and do something 'fun' together I would have run and hid.  I...
