Top Ten Reasons Not to Attend a Family Reunion

Whether it's a Thanksgiving, anniversary, or whatever it is, there's not a whole lot of fun in family reunions. I'm gonna skip a reunion on the 16th for these reasons.

The Top Ten

1 No one there is really interesting to talk to.

My parents talk with the grownups. My sister talks with my cousins. I am left all alone bored. Need I say more?

My current reunion is full of old people I just cannot have conversations with. - NuMetalManiak

Honestly I kinda like family reunions

2 You will likely get picked on by relatives

This one and #4 are a lot alike, but this one is only slightly different because you will likely get picked on by the really egotistical members who think they are always better than you. - NuMetalManiak

EVERY SINGLE TIME I attend a family gathering there is a 99.9% chance that either my mom or my dad will reprimand me and get me in trouble for absolutely no reason at all.

3 Too many old people conversations

They drag on about things no one cares about. - NuMetalManiak

I get ROASTED by the grownups!

4 People continuously comparing you to your other relatives

This is so unbearably annoying. - NuMetalManiak

5 Too much bragging about others' successes

One of the worst things about reunions, those with "superior" qualities tend to be the worst braggarts over there. - NuMetalManiak

6 It's not worth being sociable to family members who you rarely see

It definitely is not. - NuMetalManiak

7 You have much more important things to do
8 You are actually concerned that you will be the party pooper

My relatives are the true party poopers. My cousins sometimes annoys me, and my parents reprimand me for nothing or embarrass me.

9 You don't like the location of the reunion
10 You don't like the food offered
