Memes That Tell The True Story of Having Thanksgiving With Your Family

Same s--t show, different year.

It’s that time of year again, folks. The holidays are here and it’s time to get out of your Netflix and Chill cave and actually socialize with loved ones. If you’re pissed that you didn’t get a Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie before it sold out at Walmart, or you’re over being asked about your single life, that’s what Thanksgiving food and booze are for. And after reading this Thanksgiving gathering story, as put so eloquently by memes, you’ll know you’re not alone. Here’s how it usually goes:
