Some interesting ones!
L1: Nope. Nope, nope, nope. Even if you were ready to reconcile, Christmas dinner is not the time to do it.
L2: Ballsy. You got suckered out of $100. Did you at least get leftovers?
L3: Ha ha ha, gross. "...so if you don't take notice of the paintings he might not even focus on them." Yeah, bullcrap. Were you not 5 once? Five-year-olds are obsessed with that stuff.
L4: Well, that will make girl's night out awkward no matter what. Cut ties and move along.
L5: Just have your pre-fab answer all ready. "I have plans already but thank you for asking." Move along. I fail to believe that *this* is the hardest thing about suddenly losing your parents. People are just trying to be nice.
Abortion letter: Inpatient therapy for getting over an abortion? Really?
Baby shower letter: WTF do you think 'hosting' means? Have you ever had to pay for any other shower you've attended as a guest? Also, "All the food is going to cost quite a bit"? Why is that? 10 people, a $15 cake from the grocery store, some finger foods and some pop. How hard is that? Or make a cake for $5...
Guardianship letter: Shoulda told her that when she was knocked up with #3. But yeah, she gets to crank out kids indefinitly and expects you to be ready with the Partridge Family bus at her funeral? F that. I'd say even agreeing to take on one kid is generous.
