    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...

    Uuuugh, I probably sound like a douche when I say this.. I wish I didn't have these 'get-togethers'. Honestly, I'd rather be watching TV at home. But no; every few weeks I have to have dinner with scores of people I'd rather not see, and listen to how their lives are so...

    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.
