Today, I dropped the collection basket during Christmas Mass at my Catholic church. Money and checks fell all over the floor and everyone was staring at me. I was too stunned to even pick it up. There were about 1,500 people from our town there and my family won't stop bringing it up. FML

You dropped something and people stared at you. I'm legitimately impressed your family can bring something that mundane up so often. "Please hand me that thing, but don't drop it like [name] dropped that basket. Hahaha!" "Please do another favor, but avoid doing something that could in some way be connected to [name] dropping that basket. Ha. Ha. Ha." "If you were a basket, [name] would drop you. Haaaaaaaaaaa…"

Key word is "Catholic" church. I went to a Catholic church for Easter one year and it easily had 2000 people. It had 2 floors of balcony seating in addition to a huge ground floor. The place was bigger than a lot of concert venues I've been to.

some churches are big, Catholic or not. the church my mother has dragged me to has on average 700-800 people attend each Sunday. religious holidays like Easter or xmas youll except double that because everyone and their cousin goes to church those days.

Mistakes happen. That would be embarrassing, but hopefully you are able to laugh about it, because embarrassing stuff (e.g., mistakes) like his happens a lot. Hopefully your family is just making light of the situation and poking fun. Best to just laugh it off and move on. It will be a good story to tell the grandchildren one day.

I'm always scared one day I'll drop the communion when it's passed at church! That sucks, I'm sorry.

You may already know, but those types will get upset about anything deemed a sleight against that. Maybe just not go back to that church for awhile and find another. Your family is being crappy as well to you.
