Some do-good type of relatives want family events to be memorable, so they will take a chance and invite the family members who are better off left alone--even when God himself is saying, "Avoid the drama..." Despite the past issues with relatives, the wild ones will still come out and show their love and support until someone triggers a deep rooted emotional issue to come flying forth! Now the fight is on!
Do yourself a favor as the season warms up and family get-togethers are underway, stay clear of the drama. When you know you have issues with certain relatives, stay home! If you are planning the party, take a vote on whether Crazy Henry, Wild Suzie, or Rude Brenda should be at the event. I'm sure the reason why the last event didn't go over so well is because all three showed up!
