A Thanksgiving Showdown: Cash or Clash? 💰🦃

In a bid to keep the peace during the family Thanksgiving dinner, our beachside host came up with a unique solution - a $500 deposit to ensure a politics-free evening. However, when sister Kari and her husband Bob refused to pay, they found themselves uninvited. Despite pleas from the grandparents, our host stood firm. Now, with the holiday looming, the family is divided. Will the deposit demand keep the peace or has it only added fuel to the fire? Let's see how the internet weighs in on this turkey of a situation. 🦃💬

NTA Genius!!! Bob & Kari are adults & get to decide for themselves. You are not accountable for their choices or actions. Kari will need to explain to her kids & to your Mom why she is choosing politics over family. ETA — for the time & energy I have put in to this post I feel I should be invited to this warm place holiday feast! LOL... this will absolutely need an update. Wishing you & yours a very Peaceful Thanksgiving! 🎃🎉
