Okay OP, I promise I'm not being sarcastic or mean when I say this: Happy birthday. I'm sorry your family were horrible to you, but you can get your own back soon!

Not sure why I'm being thumbed down, but if someone could decipher the second sentence for me, that'd be great.

Where I live we usually say "get back at them" or sometimes just "get them back". I've never heard "get your own back" either, although I didn't find it too hard to guess what you meant :)

I thought when they said "get your own back" they meant like taking care of yourself (ie move out/be independent etc) as opposed to relying on family to "have your back". Like instead of "we've got your back" because the family obviously didn't... Soon OP can be on their own

I would say until your family comes up with an over 20% tip for a party of 34 fuck them. Or they really do something nice for you. Being the cause you working on your birthday and being asses about it isn't right.

I'd go with several weeks at least, but OP presumably lives with them (as I've never known anyone who's actually moved out the day they turned 18) and can't avoid interaction, especially if they're regularly as horrible to her as that. I mean, she probably doesn't live with all 34 of them, but still.
