Scottish Obsession Gone Too Far? 😱

Our protagonist and her sisters, all born in Scotland, have built a life in the United States, often getting together for family gatherings. But when one sister, Lydia, introduces her boyfriend Carlos, things take a turn for the worse. 😵 At first, Carlos seems like a great guy, but his fascination with their Scottish heritage becomes increasingly uncomfortable, from endless questions to awkward haggis jokes. 🏴🤦 When the protagonist's children, Sage and Kevin, attend the gatherings, Carlos's obsession escalates, bombarding them with questions about their ethnicity and even making creepy, unexplained phone calls. 📞😰 Despite attempts to address the issue, Lydia defends Carlos, leaving the protagonist torn between family gatherings and protecting her children from Carlos's unsettling behavior. 😔 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
