#34: The Wrong Family
This hilarious story is the epitome of Midwestern hospitality! This person arrived at a family reunion in small-town Indiana. Family reunions are always full of distant cousins and whatnot. Since it was a pretty big reunion, she didn’t find it weird that she didn’t know everyone there. After about an hour of chatting and eating, someone asked her what part of the family she was with. That’s when her house of cards came tumbling down.
She mentioned the names of her grandparents who lived in town, and the family at the reunion realized that this girl wasn’t related to them at all. Her grandparents actually lived down the street, and this was a completely different reunion for a completely different family. What are the chances that such a small town would have more than one reunion in its midst? Needless to say, she felt pretty mortified for crashing a stranger’s family reunion. At least she got some free food!
