So, i get a card in the mail yesterday. No name on it for a return, just an address, and it turns out to be a Christmas card from my mom(who i havent talked to in about 6 months because of divorce/family things) So i open this piece of shit, and I find out its not soo much a Christmas card, but also an invitation to a bunch of her church functions like something today, and a gift exchange christmas day at the church.

Im gonna be going back to town to spend time with my little brothers, but dont really want to see her. But since my dad is an airline pilot, he'll be working the 25th so were celebrating christmas like the 22nd. So i'd be able to go to this gift exchange, not because i want to, but as a joke.

Have anyone seen those Heineken commercials about the 'Holiday 5-pack' I was thinking that might be fun to give someone, or maybe a porno film, or a case of bullets.


Any other ideas as to what i could give someone? lol

Calling your mom a bitch makes you look like a dumbass. Even if she is a bitch.

It will be real sad if you go to a church function to act like an A$$ to your mom. Stay home and eat some ham.

No shit. She's your mom, the only one you'll ever have. Maybe she knows something you don't.

I wasnt really planning on going, just i get pissed whenever i hear from her. She started going to this new church and changed ALOT. Barely takes care of my brothers, left the family for someone from the church(who left his wife for my mom).

Anyways, I get a letter in my mailbox yesterday. No name, just a return address so i knew it was her right away. Looked like a christmas card, but was really just a formal invitation to a couple church functions over the holidays at her new church w/ her new bf.

I stopped going when i was 16, but have stopped in to say hello to a couple friends over the last 3 years so they know me.

It was the formal invitation part that kind made me mad.

Don't involve the other churchgoers in your family drama. For all you know, they're decent folk - people who won't understand why you're crapping on their event (literally if you follow the bacon wrapped turd idea ).

Just stay home.

Yeah, give 'em a break and try not to be an ass.



IMHO, she doesnt deserve a break.

One of the many things she did, one of the things that really made me not like her, was when they were in divorce court, me(2nd oldest kid, but oldest son) She singled me out multiple times, mostly because i owned a couple AK's and an AR15 and a Cetme. Told the judge that "poor parenting/father skills" were the reasons i owned "ASSAULT RIFLES" and that i could keep them in my room and do with them as i pleased. WTF? I was 18 and bought them all by myself with money I earned. Yes, they were in my room, but they were in a safe(my dad bought me a small gunsafe for christmas one year).

After that and some other things said about me in court, i stopped talking to her completely. And for those of you saying im a jackass/punk, this is just a taste of the shit that comes out of her.

When i got the card, i read it and threw it away, didnt even consider going.

But then later in the day, i saw the heineken holiday 5-pack commercail and got a chuckle out of the thought of giving that to someone.

My mother essentially uses the church for her pitty parties, and to get her drug money from, anytime I get a letter or phone call from her I do one simple thing I ignore it. It isn't that hard just throw the damned thing in the garbage.

Well, I guess I'm just jaded from being lucky enough to have had a great mom. I wish everyone were so lucky. I hadn't read any of the drama surrounding 1BMF's situation.

+1, it's the gracious thing to do in the mood you are in. Otherwise go, and rise above it all. If you do go, show some class, be open to meeting new people and leave early.

Just my .02

You are an adult, Dont go.

You are just making yourself look like a ass, and anyone there will not think different of your mother, they will think of you, and your brothers.


Or you can suck it up, be a man and go...

Go out and get some beer and fire up the que and forget about it !

I understand you are angry, but even if she is 100% at fault, even if she is a wholehearted bitch, and never changes to the day she dies, your behaving like an ass will only mark you as an ass, not her. It might embarass her a little, temporarily, but you are the one it marks. Marks like that will last - probably a lot longer than your anger.

Step up and be the man YOU want to be - regardless of the situation. Show your BROTHERS a good example of how they can be. You have a duty here to them as well as yourself, regardless of whether you ever forgive your mother.

If that is a sample of your hardship, I say you need a way thicker skin. That wouldn't even move my sensitivity needle.

+1 Just cowboy up and do the right thing. Whatever that may be for you and yours.

No need to f'-up someone elses' holiday or church-going experience (you don't know what state of mind that they are personally going through at this time in their life also {yeah buddy, other people have lives and problems also}; you don't know what your 'joke gift' will do for their Christmas experience now and in the future, they'll always think of the shit gift they received that one year; the world is f'-uped enough already, why f' it up some more? bad karma; the rabbit runs in a circle)

If you dislike her that much, don't go.
Unless you are petty...like a woman.

Maybe this is her way of trying to reconcile with you?
