I Hate the Holidays because My Family Sucks

festive dinner tablePlease Welcome LonelyLinda to the sofa.

I hate the holidays because my family always makes a perfectly nice day unbearable. My mother is definitely not a domestic goddess and always either under-cooks or over-cooks the dinner. She then gets really upset about it and cries for most of the meal.  My step-father is a complete asshole and a drunk. By the time dinner is over he is so intoxicated that he picks a fight with everyone. Last year he and my brother Sam managed to knock over the Christmas tree and a candle which started a little fire during their drunken brawl. I’m sorry but there just isn’t enough booze or Valium in the world to get me through it again this year. I’m thinking about faking sick and spending Christmas alone this year.

Can anyone else relate to Linda’s Holiday woes?

Merry Christmas from the Family-enjoy it
