People Share What Ruined Their Christmas

Christmas can really take it out of you. If you have uncooperative family members, forcing everyone into the same room with a whole lot of expectations and spiked eggnog can be a recipe for a real bad Christmas. There were a lot of reasons to have a bad Christmas, and it can be way worse than just getting a weird gift.

    Text - Toren8002 1.2k points · 13 hours ago I'm highly allergic to dogs. My entire extended family loves dogs. To be fair, this is what ruins my Christmas nearly every year.

    Text - itsabeautifulsky 1.0k points · 12 hours ago My dad is a mail carrier and has been having to work 12 hour days ever since cyber monday. Forced to work overtime, on sundays, etc. People at the post office are literally working 80 hour weeks. They're constantly there sorting packages literally 24 hours a day. I know it's silly to complain about having too much business, but the mail service workers are severely overworked in this season. It's not much fun to celebrate a holiday that makes yo

    Text - enormoussolid 351 points · 7 hours ago Doctor here I worked Christmas day which is fine, but what wasn't fine was a patient who came in pretending to have pain and telling us that opiates and benzos are the only thing that work for her. To really play up the 'pain' she screamed at the top of her lungs. For 3 hours straight. When we finally managed to make it particularly clear that we weren't giving her drugs she suddenly didn't have pain anymore and stopped screaming, stood up, and storm

    Text - 37-pieces-of-flair 198 points · 10 hours ago edited 1 My sister. Spent a LOT of time praising herself for the gifts she got everyone. Wash, rinse, repeat. For f*ck's sake, it was 3 boxes of Peeps marshmallow candy and a stuffed Peeps duck that you found at Goodwill. That you gave to a 71 year-old man. It's not a goddamn kidney transplant!! I should've just chugged a bottle of wine before we even opened gifts.

    Text - emlovescoffee 23.5k points · 11 hours ago 2 S My mother in law tried to feed my eldest child mango, which she's been allergic to for the past 11 years. My eldest said "what are you doing??!! Grandma I'm allergic!" Grandma said "it'll be okay, it's Christmas." Um, no. Food allergies don't take Christmas off you idiot.

    Text - KyooTeaPie 19.4k points · 11 hours ago Me. Was invited to a lovely dinner by my boss with his extended family. Everything went amazingly well, even though I was nervous. I didn't drink anything due to medications, yet still managed to vomit profusely all over his car when he was giving me a ride home.

    Text - joey_kbt 12.3k points · 13 hours ago O S My cousin stole my $250 and once she got caught said: "But I need it and OP (Me) is too spoiled anyways." She then proceeded to get half of it after crying a fit and refused to give it back until she got some and after all that I still don't know why her parents don't punish her since there actually half decent.

    Text - 12 hours ago · edited 4 hours a KnotHopeless 5.7k points Found out my family actually had a Christmas party. A few days ago I got a card and directions to a charity dinner, I figured that was their way of telling they weren't doing anything this year. Apparently it was actually their way of telling me I wasn't invited.

We left when he started yelling. My sister has a degree in political science and her teaching credential in World History and Geography.

    Text - OhioMegi 4.6k points · 13 hours ago It was suggested that I drive 4 hrs round trip to pick up my grandmother for the day. We live the furthest away and I guess I can spend all that time doing it because I'm single with no kids. Luckily my mother shot that down, but it pisses me off just thinking about how it's fine for me, but not other family that's in the same fucking town.
