    Default Family

    I went off with my cousin's ex misses....Cnut whatever....They were getting divorced ect and shit happened. This was 12 years ago now and that side of the family (basically the ones that share his surname don't talk to me nor my misses) No big deal for me Im a big boy and can take any of this on the chin...I made my bed ect ect ect.
    Trouble is that side of the family have also decried that any of the rest of the family who even so much as speak to us are cut off...they join the excluded gang...childish crap.
    So the cousin is the son of a now deceased anty...my mums sister (3 amigos if you like...3 welsh sisters who loved each other to bits). There is one sister left my aunty who reached out to us 5 years ago now and started accompanying us up to scotland on holiday to see my dad ect...pals for 60 years that sort of thing..aunty is 80 now.
    During the 12 years we have been together we have been excluded from their family events (understandable) which includes weddings funerals ect. But last year a a family member of the last remaining aunty died mid 40's of cancer....we offered not to attend but the family concerned insisted we should...so the other side didnt.....Which is pretty poor..but there ya go.
    Now yesterday was the funeral for another close friend - again we didn't attend so as to keep peace but last remaining aunty went ......the other family of my cousin were all there and most of them totally blanked her...I mean wtf she's 80 years old...there mum's sister...a harmless old lady who has not done "anything"......Most remarkable is the fact that the cousin who's ec wife im with DID go over and cuddle my aunty and made a fuss of her ect....But the rest of his brothers/sisters just gave blank stares and walked straight past.....All very eastenders style...
    BTW this exclusion from communication with the "family" extends to my 87 yo dad, My 60 yo sister ONE of my brothers but not the other...lol. It's all so......sad.

    Now another cousin from the same family who was one of them who ws still talking to aunty has taken very ill....rest of the family have "banned" aunty and her family from visiting in hospital...it's all such a fuck up.

    There ya go there's my whinge. There is a wise old saying somewhere..."you can choose your friends............."

    I agree that's pretty pathetic behaviour but I suppose could be worse.

    I've lost count of how many times I've heard of Sikhs (in India and over here) screw relatives out of inheritances. Happened to my old man, he got FA out of what he should have. Recently happened to a good mate of mine, his mum passed last Decemeber of dementia. He had been the one that looked after her right to the end, but it appears one of his sisters got to his mum while she wasn't all there and had the will amended so she got everything.

    Familyís are all cunts.
    I only speak to my parents.
    My brother and sister are both assholes I have tried to keep in touch but itís all my effort and none in return so one day around 8 years ago I stopped calling my brother and he hasnít called back since.

    My sister borrowed £500 and then refused all calls from me and even moved house I told my folks I didnít care about the money but meh fuck them.
    My sister is married to my wifeís brother too and they donít talk either and no one knows why?

    my brother turned up at the hospital when I was told I had 6 months left, he cried for a bit then went home and havenít seen him again.
    So family who needs them eh!

    i have my wife and kids and thatís all I need.
    i consider myself a lucky man to still be here when so many others have lost their fight.

    My dad fucked off with some bint when I was 22 - haven't seen him since.
    My mum used to catch buses/taxi's etc to visit his side of the family for several years, until she realised that it was all one sided and false.
    At my cousins wedding they were all luvvie duvvie with us, until it was announced that my dad might show up, then they all fucked off to the other side of the hotel and refused to acknowledge us, which upset my mum no end and resulted in me threatening to fill my uncles and the groom in for being cunts to my mum.

    Years later when my nan died, her obituary mentioned all the family, except for me and my brother. Same when my aunt died. - We weren't even informed of their deaths. Still. Karma is wonderful.

    2 of my cousins on his side have both served time and are complete wasters/pissheads
    Another cousin is an anorexic with anxiety disorders
    The cousin, (who's wedding I went to's) husband came out as gay eventually
    My uncle, who gave it the big 'un at that wedding is now blind
    And my dad now lives in a static caravan in some shit hole in Gloucestershire

    I'mj ust waiting now for the old man to die. Hopefully slowly and painfully

    Thanks guy's. I just needed to unload. I know my situation is not unique. I know there are people much much worse.....like i say i just needed to unload. For the avoidance of doubt - Me getting with my misses was a decision both of us took when we were single - her 30+ yo kids both accepted and happy and call round to see us always. But what im getting at is nobody else ever needed to fall out or stop speaking to other members of my family nor stop speaking to people who speak to us.......To involve dead people, To invovle very old people to involve sick and lonely people......NONE of it warrented nore needed.
    It's like a cross between having upset the Mafia godfather or alternatively the school playground activity of you can't play along with us if you talk to him/her. It makes me sad when it makes innocent old aunty cry.....thats why i needed to unload. But thanks again - as I said you can choose your friends. Had to post here as don't do faceache and would have vomited at the usual "You ok hun PM me..."! lol.

    At the odd family meet up (her side of family) I find that being really overly nice but in a way you cant get called out gets the best results.

    Seems like most people have trouble with their family in some way or another.

    I always you to be the one making the effort and just stopped when I got to 30.

    I thought blood was thicker than water and all that??? ;-) Or is she a proper wrong un lol

    Edit: I hadn't read it. That is pretty poor at best. Not a lot you can say to excuse that. Hope it doesn't screw up your family too much ..

    Head held high mate. This wasn't anyone but the two that commit the crime. Anyone saying anything else are going to be your typical arsehole (in real life I'm taking here). Don't let them drag you down bud.

    ive had lots of messages and calls asking if itís my sister, they never knew she was a compulsive liar and thief, I havenít denied it was, but all the times Iíve warned people and they thought I was just bitter towards her have now had their eyes opened.

    24 years itís took, but itís worth it.
