    29 Insufferable Relatives Who Will Make You Long For The Holidays To Be Over

    Is it even the holiday season if a younger cousin or nephew doesn't ruin one of your possessions?

    It's always nice to see your family over the holidays, but I gotta admit...it can be a LOT to have everyone under one roof. And after a few days, or a week...it can start to feel like this:

    Here are 29 infuriating people who probably have their family members wishing the holiday season was a bit shorter.

    1. This extended family member, who left the toilet like this without saying anything, then left.

    2. This sister, who borrowed her sibling's AirPods, then dyed her hair, staining them with a color that looked like earwax.

    3. This mom, who broke her adult kid's $200 mug and almost caused a house fire over Thanksgiving.

    4. This little brother, who would not stop his 4 a.m. texts about using his brother's hotspot.

    5. This mom, who insisted on keeping the temperature at 61 — and I'm willing to bet she also said "put on a sweater if you're so cold."

    6. And this dad, who literally set a password on the thermostat.

    11. This cousin, who *almost* got away with it.

    12. This sister, who pulled the classic annoying sibling move of refusing to replace anything in the fridge, leaving the tiniest bit left on the bottom so she could justify it. (Confession: I've done this. Sorry, it's in my blood as a little sister.)

    13. This dad, who stored leftovers like this.

    17. This sibling, who left a shower cap in the toilet that I at least hope belonged to them, and not another sibling.
