Do you have a relative that annoys you so bad but you are too chicken to say how you feel to their face?

My aunt annoys the crap outta me. She has no children and been married for 15 years. When she calls anyone in our family or they call her most of the conversation revolves around her and what nice things she recently got. She also likes to brag about how her and her dh likes to go to Ireland every other year when practically any other family member is struggling to get by financially. It just annoys me that she rarely thinks about anyone but herself.

  • Yes! Sounds like a family member of mine. Very self-absorbed. I think when some women (not all of course) have no children and get older they get that way because they have never had to take care of anyone besides themselves. It also may be a little jealousy on her part since she has no kids. Maybe she secretly always wanted kids & it just never worked out for her. I just smile and make the best of the day.

  • Yes. I have some family members that annoy me. It's not because they brag or are conceited, but because they make statements that make it clear that anyone who is not white, conservative, heterosexual, never been divorced, and isn't a member of *their* religion is somehow beneath them.

    I get so tired of the phrase "well, you know how THOSE people are...."
