While I'm not quite in the Christmas sucks category, it's not really my favorite time of year. I appreciate the day off, but I'd rather just relax at home with my significant other, but NO, we have to have all rinds if family over.
Now to preface this, we just had a big family party at her sisters two days ago, I was all nice and friendly to some pretty annoying people, now a decent amount have to be invited over on this day.
Can't a guy just be antisocial, why does everyone have to spoil his day off?????

life is hard. Christmas can suck. People can suck. It comes and goes. Like a two-sided coin. Then it gets better. Until it sucks again. Life....The only consolation is: Motorcycling!!!

Sucks eh? Grow Up. Take your head out, breath some fresh air and lend a hand to somebody that needs it.

I'll ask his wife if Christmas sucks.

If you've got your health and the ability to make your own decisions I reckon that you ought to suck it up, not complain about it all. Just my opinion
I'm very sorry to hear that Steve, not good mate.

OK, went for a ride today, I'm all better now.

Edit: No story, my parents seemed to fight a lot/more at Christmas, as do my wife and I. I was just being maudlin, IDK why, I always get that way at Christmas, my mom did too, maybe it's genetic or something.

Merry Xmas Tripp. Glad the ride helped. The good and the bad are all mixed up in this world. Stay strong.

Good thing you rode, doesn't look like you'll be riding after tomorrow for a while, if weather reports are correct!

Damn Scratch... why aren't you out stealing toys in Whoville?
