My mothers family doesn't really ever go out of their way to involve us in stuff, they mostly mingle amongst themselves which is pretty rude for family in my opinion. Most didn't really push their kids much either, so most of my cousins are borderline highschool dropouts, into the drug scene and generally not smart so we really don't mesh.

The only close aunt on my mothers side passed away from asthma a little over 10 years ago.


Ha, Ha, Ha you're cousins are the scum of society. And btw it's hereditary you waste of space.

So there are two sides of my family: my mom's side and my dad's side. I mean, duh for that. But my gosh, the two are so completely different from each other that it is unbelievable. Both sides of the family are deathly afraid of the other so they never get together.

My dad's side could be called Professionally Boring. Social gatherings could more accurately be called socially awkward gatherings. Nobody wants to make eye contact with anyone else. Eventually people will go into the TV room and watch something in complete silence. Everyone is awkwardly employed in quiet professions like accounting, insurance, or engineer. Most of them live in Chicago so the Bears are popular but some other teams like the Steelers have their fans. Nobody discusses this, but which game is watched is determined by who gets the remote first.

My mom's side meanwhile could be called Professional Miscreants. Social gatherings aren't really a social gathering until one cousin punches another in the face. Probably off a porch. Alcohol and more will be involved. As will shouting and hollerin'. Most have done a tour in the army. About half are consistently employed. The rest...well...the police just ignore them unless they get too out of hand. For some reason, everyone is also a Packers fan. None of them have been been to Wisconsin, let alone Green Bay. I would wager less than half know that Green Bay is in Wisconsin.

I don't really hate them as much as I facepalm at them, but for different reasons. One of my Things to Do if I ever get a time machine is to go back to my parents' wedding so I can see the two mingle.


Your moms family sounds fun

My family is very judgemental, especially when it comes me and my difficulty getting a job.

Most of my family is homophobic and overly-religious.

The thing that bugs me about my family is that there are so darn many of them. My great-aunt was into genealogy and followed the family tree back to the 1200s and then followed every branch forward again. I have a ridiculous number of relatives most of whom I've never met face to face except perhaps at one of several annual family reunions where there are so many people I'd never remember them all. Basically anyone with certain surnames is a distant relation and I've run into relatives in every state I've visited and every town I've spent time in. Ironically most of the older generations are in touch with each other so I can show up in some random place and within a day my mother will hear from some relative asking if I'm her daughter.

Blood family first I guess.

Dad's side is full of gangbangers who would kill their own little brothers and sisters if need be.

On my mom's side, my aunt died last year not too long after she received a promotion, a lot more money and a new car. My aunt also left A LOT of money for my younger cousin, so my "grandmother" who is a greedy ho(she was a legitimate gold digger and what not before she got married) wanted the money at ALL COSTS. When my mom got custody over my cousin my "grandma" resorted to accusing me of being dangerous saying I raped my cousin, my sister and my SIX YEAR OLD, brother, I would constantly beat my mom and brother, etc. She even told my grandpa she was even willing to get my brother and sister taken away from my mom in order to win, etc etc.

Then my cousin, she just talks a lot of shit to the wrong people. She has friends come over to my house occasionally but they had a fall out one time with the wrong people, the people they were talking shit too weren't the problem, the people those people knew were. They had connections with some people I knew who would actually go around doing drive-bys and get caught up in shoot ups etc. So when she started talking shit, they wanted to meet up with her, she ran her mouth and started running around and taking the lightrail around the city running away from them lol. Then she got to my house and I was pissed, because I would've been damned if my mom or siblings got caught up in gunplay because some bitch didn't know how to shut her mouth.

Luckily, nothing happened as those girls were cool with my other cousin and they knew who I was.


As for my actual family(my really good friends, and my mom and stuff)

They're just really sensitive at times, and I hate dealing with crybaby bitches.
