Is it normal to hate when people bring kids to thanksgiving

My sister brought her ' gifted' grandchild who runs her ragged after I said no kids at golden corral . Her slow adult daughter and my 100 plus year old relative played with him a lot until she fell asleep . but that still wasn't enough. I hate kids.Kids ruin the holidays because you can't discuss or do certain adult things when they are present and they talk about fart constantly.my husband left in the middle of it because he had an emergency I think this is why.

I had to listen to the brat sing kid songs talk about his favorite sides and hated sides at golden corral listen to him say why look at me a hundred times. and say I liked his dumb coloring pages he made everyone.He also called me mrs poopyhead and stuck his tongue out at me.

he had other cute nicknames for everyone else and my sister and I kind of had a tiff about his disrespectfulness and she shouldn't let him pick what sides he wanted at the buffet.His choices weren't sugar laden or anything they very thanksgivingish.She thinks I act this way because my adult kids don't speak to me.I also get the feeling people are sick of me saying who can and can't come, but we pay for everything and I should have a say.

Is It Normal?

  • I don't know what your problem is. Sounds like you are in a lower level than the child.

    • That's what I was thinking. The OP seems to have the maturity level of an 8 year old maybe?

  • Find them some resources for house sitting special needs children in your area. Your feelings are understandable though.

  • Kids are horrible. Whenever I hear a kid being loud in a restaurant singing stupid songs making a mess I want to send them through the window with a baseball bat. It adds to it that this is apparently one of those "gifted" kids which probably means he has mild autism and uses big words so the idiot parents think hes smart and that makes it even more annoying.

  • Good kids can be fine, but badly behaved kids are a bane upon society. Additionally, if you requested that they not bring kids to the restaurant dinner you're paying for, then they shouldn't have brought a kid to the restaurant dinner you're paying for.

  • You went to the Golden Corral for Thanksgiving and there were an issue about the items offered not being Thanksgivingish. Going there in the first place wasn't Thanksgivingish. Furthermore, if you were offended, you could have just left and gone to Cracker Barrel or Denny's for your Thanksgiving meal. So I am just curious do you live in the Ozarks or the Appalachian mountains?

      • Well there you go. The Appalachians. But I thought people from West Virginia call it West "by God" Virginia. At least when I lived back in Pennsylvania that is what the people from Wheeling called it.

  • I do agree that kids are grossly annoying, even if they are your own. But at the holidays there really isn't anything else to do with them except bring them along.

    What's even more annoying is the people who think you are wonderfully impressed with them managing to procreate....
