So, this past weekend was a family get-together. Mostly for shits and giggles. I thought I'd just share some of the hilarity that goes on when my father's side gets together:
1: Got picked up by parents after work (so we could carpool) and ended up having to go back to their place because they forgot something. That was a +1hr to the drive.
2: Got to the hotel to find the room we were given wasn't cleaned. Given the room next door.
3: Went to get breakfast while fiance was in shower. The maid who made the mistake was cleaning the old room and I told her it was ok things happen. Then I find out later they accidentally started cleaning my room while my fiance was still in the shower. He had quite the surprise when he stepped out in his towel! My aunt over-heard everything. XD
4: Left rocks and sugar packets on my grandparents grave. Rocks to say we were there, and sugar packets because grandma would always swipe them from restaurants. (Not kidding here. For my parent's 25th wedding anniversary, grandma gave them the CONTAINER that the sugar was in during their wedding reception... and it was full of packets).
5: My aunt cracked her nail on the gravestone; everyone suspects it was grandma being pissed we didn't come for Mother's day.
6: I made a new family quote: "Grandpa was always making jokes, grandma always knew how you should live your life and would make sure you knew. Either way, both will DEFINITELY be memorable individuals."
7: Had reservations for dinner; 1 aunt, 1 uncle and mother get told the table is ready. Aunt runs off to tell others & promptly forgets. Instead she slips an ice cube down my father's shirt and runs off to the deck to chat with the other family members.
8: Brother orders food and father criticizes his choice in food, making the whole family revolt on dad, telling to shut it. (Brother DID enjoy his food, despite it being something my father really disliked).
9: 7 year old niece gets idea in her head to order lobster. Quickly shut down by sister-in-law.
10: Brother brought his dog. 1 year and 2 months old, dog still pees on people when he gets excited to see them. Aunt encourages this the whole weekend.
11: Father refuses to stop at store on way back so that brother can buy the father's day present. Father states there's not enough room in the car for it.
12: Find out sister-in-law sent TWO bibles with niece while she's with grandparents for the month. Unsure how this exists, but one of them is a "Princess Bible". Last I checked, there weren't any princesses in the bible. O.o
13: Stopped for dinner on way home, waitress put all drinks right next to the 7 year old. Thankfully she didn't knock them all off the table, but she did manage to steal my fiance's straw.
And I'll add more if I remember anything else.
