Thanksgiving is not just a day off work. There’s a lot of work that goes into it if you’re hosting the big family meal and some people mean business when they’re in charge of the celebration.
This Grandma, Helen, decided to make a hilarious list of demands for her family in order to avoid any Thanksgiving meltdowns.
Some of Helen’s house rules for Thanksgiving include, “Jonathan, your last new wife was an idiot. You don’t arrive at someone’s house on Thanksgiving needing to use the oven and the stove. Honest to God I thought you might have learned after two wives – date them longer and save us all the agony of another divorce.”
There will be no Jell-O at Helen’s dinner either because she writes, “This year, if Jell-O salad comes in the front door it will go right back out the back door with the garbage. Save yourself some time honey. You’ve never been a good cook and you shouldn’t bring something that wiggles more than you.”
Helen wrote some strict instructions for mothers saying, “Being a mother means you have to actually pay attention to the kids. I have nice things and I don’t put them away just because company is coming over. Mary, watch your kids and I’ll watch my things.”
