So has anyone else endured family rows and annoying arguments or had there xmas ruined by family???. I have yes this is a rant but im mad,and still need to vent. Spent my xmas evening being sent vile mouthed texts off my brother in law calling my kids names and me. All because we never sent a xmas card to him, to be honest we didnt send anyone a card.We don't see or hear off him ever and the first time we do its to recieve abuse. Well im done with family , i have never been so hurt in my life. So my xmas was naff all because of one nasty vile mouthed person x

I don't do cards either, I'd rather donate money to charity.

Let him cool off and explain you haven't sent any to anyone, maybe he was upset by something else too?

I hope you manage to sort it out x

You tight sod, im not supprised you got angry txt's sent to you...:hihi:
Only joking, family can be more trouble than they are worth and we dont do the card thing much. I hate it when they drag the kids in too, very adult of them. Sounds to me like you're better off without them if this is how they behave.

Well it's not your loss is it?! Ignore, spend time with your family (the ones you want to see) and enjoy the break. We didn't do cards this year (death in the family) but I'm sure there'll be someone somewhere who still takes offence to it.

I dont send xmas cards, I donate money to the neo natel unit at the maternity wing instead.

Well .. I send a few cards, but I have to say, I bought one pack last year and I still have lots left ... credit crunch and all that ...


I think Christmas Day is fraught with emotion ... the anticipation .. the hard work ... and one drink makes you feel like you've had three ... Boxing Day is a lot more relaxed and a bit wider spread, family wise.

Enjoy!

I know thats why im mad ,say what they want about me but to say things about my poor kids that can't defend themselves thats sad. I know it was not just about the christmas card not that he will admitt it. His partner had there baby a few week ago and to be honest we aint gone to see her or sent a card. Because he didnt bother when we had our daughter not a card or anything. Only time he phoned was when my daughter was 6 week old asking for a computer fixing. I went mad cos he phoned for that but had not biother asking how our daughter was or anything. He did come to see her only with his computer under his arm to be fixed. His a very selfuish man that only bothers when it is to benefit himself. Thats why we dont have anything to do with him and i think this is why he was ticked off. But saying goes what comes around goes around.He would fleece his own family if it ment he was ok. Some ppl they shock me

I'm really glad that our family isn't so stressful! I wouldn't have anything to do with them if they were as nasty as your brother in law charlie9865.

I had a lovely christmas with my family even my pa was not so grumpy this year.

Sorry to hear your christmas did not go as planned it is hurtful & upsetting when arguements happens especially at this time of the year when families should be together in peace.

I didn't send any cards this year and I had a very nice Christmas day at home, doing absolutely sod all, watched Harry Potter then went out with friends at night. Fantastic! I'd suggest it to anyone - especially if my family were as bad as yours Charlie9865
