Ah, Thanksgiving - a time for family, food, and heated political debates that leave everyone feeling drained. One clever host decided to tackle this issue by implementing a $500 deposit policy to ensure a peaceful gathering. The catch? The deposit would be returned at the end of the night if politics were not discussed. However, not everyone in the family was on board with this idea, particularly the host's sister Kari and her husband Bob. Let's dive into the story and see how this family feud unfolds. 🦃💰

Thanksgiving Deposit Drama: Who's in the Right? 🤷

In an attempt to avoid political debates and ensure a peaceful Thanksgiving dinner, our host came up with a $500 deposit policy. The deposit would be returned at the end of the night if politics remained off the table. While most family members agreed, Kari and Bob refused to pay, leading to them being uninvited. Now, the host is questioning their decision as it affects the children and their parents' desire to see all their grandchildren. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐

Setting boundaries is important. Laughing at pushy relatives 😂
