You know we don’t care right? Why don’t you find some ways to entertain yourself than whining to a bunch of people who can’t care less?


Cry me a Ganga.

Call the whaaaaaaambulance.


You are with relatives. Focus on spending quality time with them rather than bitching about the place here


I swear to god I’m contemplating voluntarily completing some courses for my CPE credits on a Friday night! Googling ways to kill myself comes up with a helpline number and not suggestions 😭 ! This is the first evening , 2 more to go 😢

Lol! I did, it’s still on the way!

Damn dude... That sounds like my dream weekend gateway - literally get away from it all!

But it’s gloomy, wet and overcast, with same forecast for the weekend, no wonder why people are so depressed here

Yeah SC1+1

OP - you're there for the people not the place. I hope so. Could be bumfuck, just hang with your folks... Today's world, being able to visit "your folks" is a privilege so don't shit on it.

Couples (especially married people): how do you balance sharing holidays across various family units? I’m finding it hard to balance my husband’s mom (divorced, single), his dad (remarried with teenage kids), and my parents (married), plus of course all the additional family that comes along with each unit. How best to make it fair, year after year?
