Today, I went to a big family dinner. I didn't realize I hadn't been invited until we were about to sit down to eat. There were 12 chairs, 12 plates, 12 forks, and 12 glasses. I was the 13th person to arrive. FML

OP wasn't invited. OP needs to realize that if you aren't invited there's a reason and OP should leave. Sure it isn't nice to not invite OP but maybe OP had a falling out with the host or some family. We just don't know.

80- I'm more puzzled as to why there's no knives or napkins…
I can understand no spoons, simply no soup. but knives are kinda supposed to be there, no?

59) you make me wonder if you think 14 is serious, about the demented hobo part anyway, the not op's family could be very well accurate!

I dunno, when my father announces "we're going now to aunt/uncle/cousin ____ for a family gathering" I kinda assume I'm invited even if no one sent me a personalized invitation with all paperwork filled out in triplicate. so yeah, I can see how OP could make the mistake to assume that their family counted them as a family member

Well, let's see... Generally whenever it's a family gathering and you're a close immediate member of that family, you just kind of automatically assume that you were invited.

I don't know...if my family (extended or otherwise) has a party or dinner and everyone else is invited, it usually means I'm invited too. Generally people don't invite every single person in the family one-by-one. They're just say "I'm having a get-together. Can you all come?"
