I'll wade in here, the good threads always start after I go home.
My direct family is the screrwed up one in the big picture, but do have a few colorful relatives.
1) manic depressive aunt that nobody new was MD until my grandmothers funeral. Her idea of fun was trying to make at least one person cry at every holiday. After one particularily ugly figth with my grandmother (think dishes being thrown) my granmother's response was " and you think you are getting my china"
2) My stock broker uncle has lyme disease that has driven him insane, after divorcing my aunt for a friend of my aunts that is younger then his daughter he spent all of his savings to impress her and now works as a night manager at a wawa.
3) My step father is a bit of a legend at UCC for having driven over his house mistress with a motorcycle in the hallway. A friend of mine that went there was telling this story and then my step father said, that it was him. it has been verified by a few of his friends.
4) Not my family, but from a reliable source. imagine a 34 year old grandfather.
