Last year my family and I went to my aunt’s house for thanksgiving (along with my roommate/good friend). My alcoholic uncle was also there with his much younger Taiwanese wife. The entire time he kept going outside into the bushes to smoke “weed” (even though a joint was being passed around outside) for a minute or two and coming back all hyped up and crazy eyed. The entire time he kept talking about how everyone hates it when he drinks and how’s the “token alcoholic” of the family. He kept telling the most uncomfortable stories to my roommate and I about how he used to smoke a lot of crack, how much he loves porn and what a stupid bitch his wife is (who was about 10 feet away and is probably the sweetest person in the world). My friend made some sort of sassy remark after hearing enough of his shit, so my uncle kept going around the room telling everyone how much he wanted to beat my friend’s (who happens to be gay) “smug fucking f*ggot ass”. It was an awkward night to say the least, and one of my best friend’s first impression of my family.
