Whether it’s a passive-aggressive barb or an overshare, sometimes you just cannot “unhear” things. Family dinners can be breeding grounds for these, so if you choose to attend (or are forced or coerced) your family’s Thanksgiving dinner, then you may as well enjoy it for such.
From the OverheardAtThanksgiving hashtag, the more political side of family dinner:
#OverheardAtThanksgivingDinner Yes, I'm still single. No, I'm not a lesbian. Please pass the wine.

You’ll get through this Thanksgiving dinner, even if you have to pull out one of these lines. We’re rooting for you.
