To ask the worst behaviour at Christmas you’ve witnessed by an adult?

Mine is:

Drunk cousin (24 at the time) shouting and arguing with everyone for most of Boxing Day three years ago, then topped it off when someone told her to stop being stupid by standing up and scraping the entire contents of her dinner plate all over the table and made my aunt cry.

At age 11 I asked my DM through a closed bedroom door what we'd be having for Xmas dinner. She replied she's not bothering and that she couldn't be arsed as there were only the 2 of us.. (thinking I didn't know about the man she'd brought home from pub night before) and that she's spending the day in bed. On Xmas. Leaving me alone.

Rang my friend who's dm was mortified. They picked me up and I spent Xmas there and I had the best time.

I ended up crying down the phone

@ThumbWitchesAbroad it is working fine.

Thank you for posting I am watching it now. In a strange way it has lifted my mood. Everything is so tight this year and so many unexpected bills, dramas, hospital appointments, dental work, even the 3rd attempt at mince pies didn't work and some of those are intended for gifts. Xmas Confused. Today i hit my limit.

This is good

Thank you. I feel restored.

Do you have any relationship with her now?
What were future christmases like?

@Jammysod

MIL travelled across country to stay with us on Christmas Eve. DH picked her up from the train station, but on the way back she started bitching about my parents (who had invited us for Christmas dinner) & having a strop. I only found this out after she'd swanned in the house like nothing happened, leaving DH distraught in the car.
She then refused to acknowledge what she'd done, decided she was going home & had the audacity to ask DH to take her back to the train station. She got the bus to the station and spent Christmas alone.
She still comes at Christmas unfortunately, so we spend the whole time on pins worried about a repeat performance.

My dad took us all home after taking away our presents... I still have the memories of being absolutely distraught as I wanted the twin dolls so much, but knowing it was the right thing to do... I was about 6 years old... It instilled a good sense of fairness into me

I wish my parents had taken that attitude Marylou

My paternal GM hated me with a passion, because she hated my mother nd blamed me for my parents sticking together (apparently my DF would have come to his senses if I hadn't been born). However she doted on my brother and younger sisters, so I got nothing from her year after year, while they got presents.

My DM moaned about it at home, and DF agreed with her but neither of them did anything about it. It shot my confidence to hell - not just her attitude to me, but that they didn't think I was worth defending..

At a works Christmas party on a boat yonks ago a colleague got a bit friendly with a guy from a different office. One of the older ladies went on the top deck to get some fresh air and witnessed said colleague giving her new friend a blow job! I didn't fare much better. Ended up getting rather friendly with a guy I worked with. Hadn't realised how totally gorgeous he was until that evening🤭

Ex H collected DDs for new year, when they arrive at his house it materialises that their younger sister has a vomiting bug and had been up all night with D & V. He brings them home two nights later and predictably they both, followed by me a few days after them all come down with the sickness bug , resulting in me needing to take the first week of January off work, as the bug worked it’s way through the household. I’m a self employed single parent- if I don’t work I don’t get paid. Arsehole.

Just to clarify, it was their younger half sister that was ill initially, and he knew this. This is the same guy that if either of his daughters got ill during his access time he would immediately bundle them up into the car and drive them home because it wasn’t his responsibility to look after them when they were sick- in case he got sick and had to miss work from his Very Important Job.
