Diply Social Team
Diply | Diply

Meet Anna, a 22-year-old Portuguese-American who loves soccer and cooking. She's been dating her boyfriend for four years, and they recently moved in together. This year, Anna wanted to host a special Thanksgiving dinner for both of their families, complete with traditional Portuguese and American dishes. But there was one small problem: Anna's boyfriend's mom is a staunch 'no electronics on Thanksgiving' kind of person, and Anna wanted to watch a soccer match on the big day. Despite being warned about his mom's pickiness, Anna went ahead with her plans, hoping to bring everyone together. But things didn't go quite as planned... 🦃⚽🇵🇹

A Thanksgiving to Remember...or Forget? 🦃⚽🤦‍♂️

Anna's Thanksgiving dinner was a mix of joy, laughter, and tension. While her amazing cooking skills brought most of the family together, her boyfriend's mom couldn't get past the soccer match playing on TV. The evening took a turn for the worse when mom made a snide remark, comparing the lively dinner to a circus. Though Anna's boyfriend warned her about his mom's pickiness, he didn't stand up for her when it mattered most. Now, their relationship is strained, and Anna is left feeling disappointed and hurt. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🤔💔
