Dinner Is Over! And No Thanksgiving

This post was written by maude in the TrèsSugar Community group Awkward!.

A couple of years ago, I spent Thanksgiving at a friend's house. Everything was great, her mother had worked all day to make the perfect Thanksgiving dinner, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, homemade biscuits, and all the other classics. We all sat down to eat and some of my friend's siblings were arguing incessantly.

The mother who worked so hard, kept telling them to quit it and enjoy dinner that she had worked so hard on. Of course, they didn't and just kept at each other. So finally the mother (who can be very dramatic) stood up and grabbed a pitcher of water on the table and just started pouring it all over the table and the food. As she poured, she announced "dinner was over!" Every dish was basically watered down! YUCK! No one made a peep and just politely got up from the table. It was the end of Thanksgiving!

There's lots of great stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!

Talk about putting out a fire. Too bad about the food though.

Wow, Zivanod. I cannot imagine my mom ever doing something like that to me. It's a comical story but, gosh, a bit childish from her. These stories are sad but hilarious, though.

oh glowingmoon, you said it. So many people like this LOVE the drama even though they insist that they hate it. and they love having an audience. It's so sad.

I agree with Autumns_Eleg as well. Don't waste the food, throw water on the people!That reminds me of one time my mom and I got into a fight. She grabbed my sandwich I was eating, started ripping it apart and threw the pieces at me. I took hers and did the same. LOLAfter, she told me to go live with my dad. Hahaha An empty threat but I quieted down and ate the other half of my sandwich.

This resonates with my family.Apparently, the arguing has already started in my family, as they're hashing-out what's going to be on the menu. :)Of course, during the get-together, there will be the requisite stormy arguments between certain family members, as they thrive from the drama, and deep down inside, love the fact that there are spectators. :)

I'm concerned at the fact that she ruined a perfectly good meal. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a nice Thanksgiving meal. She should have at least just sent the kids to their room or something.

WOW...thank god I never had to put up with those kinds of antics. I'd never go back to any functions if that happened in my/my boyfriend's/friend's family!!!

Man, if my bf's mom did that every time people started arguing at the dinner table, there would be no Thanksgiving. Period. Or Hanukkah. Or Passover. Or any meal!

That reminds me of my HS friend's mother. She was pretty dramatic at times but this one takes the cake. She was making cookies when for some reason the family started arguing and she got upset. She poured a bottle of windex into the dough and made the cookies (screaming the whole time). Thankfully when they were done she threw them out and stormed out of the house. After a few minutes she came back in eerily calm and made a fresh batch. Creepy!

That sounds awful! My family is usually painfully quiet at Thanksgiving.

Ha, that's classic.My bf's family has a very similar story. When he was a kid, his entire family (aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins) were all sleeping over at one of their houses on Christmas Eve. The parents stayed up very late wrapping presents and imbibing in a little (too much?) Christmas Cheer. Well, the boys decided to wake up extra-early (just after the parents went to bed) and proceeded to make a lot of noise and wake everyone up. My bf's mom gets up, stomps downstairs, and yells:CHRISTMAS IS CANCELLED!!It's a classic story to this day in their family, and I don't think a year goes by that someone doesn't jokingly say it when things get a little rowdy.
