Guide To Surviving Your Family's Horrible Questions This Thanksgiving
The holidays can be great. There’s free food, free booze, lots of delicious cheeses, and desserts. Did I mention booze? Whether you’re a poor college student or struggling adult, it’s a great time to eat as much food and drink as much as you want – FO FREE.
When it comes to spending time with family members, there’s ALWAYS a catch. In addition to all the great stuff comes all the annoying questions you don’t want to answer.
As a struggling human who is in an exclusive relationship with her cat, I totally get the struggle and I’m here to help. I’ve compiled a list of the most common (and annoying) questions you’re bound to be asked and have given you some responses to get everyone off your back. Warning: sarcasm ahead.
What are you planning on doing with your life?
-It’s a surprise.
it's short, simple, and straight to the point. They won't be expecting that answer so there's a good chance they'll walk away immediately after; WIN.
How come you’re single?
- Because I hate everyone.
- I’m actually in a relationship. She has 4 little paws and a big fluffy tail, we’re getting pretty serious, thinking about taking things to the next level.
Why are you unemployed, you should get a job.
- Oh really, I should? I never thought about that, Good idea!
- The job market is just so great right now I’m having trouble deciding between which six figure salary job I want to take right now.
- I killed a guy once, no one will hire me.
*Let’s talk about politics*
When it doubt – more sarcasm and more drinking, it’s the only way to survive. If all else fails, just remember all of the Black Friday sales you get to take advantage of once this is all over. So enjoy all of your food and we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at iEDM!
