82. I just don't understand,
why do so many people subject themselves to this type of behavior, at what are supposed to be joyous occasions? Tell your aunt quietly that, while you would dearly love to see your family, you have made plans to be with people who can behave in a civilized manner.

I was also raised to believe that religion and politics were not suitable topics for social events.

Of course, in my family that left football. :::shudder::: Iran could drop a bomb on Israel and nobody would notice, because it is very important to out-shout each other over Cowboys vs Redskins.

That's why I have holiday dinners at home with my boys, who know how to behave. :loveya:
