Seriously it was like 3 FMLs in one. Get your lives together all of you! And before someone starts in on me not knowing the situation or whatever... It's FML... the point of the site is to judge based on the few sentences we see and the few we see are a damn mess.
Wait nevermind I Read it as a house full of grown folks and despite renovations none of them could afford a table.... Still I mean you could get a nice evwn antique table at garage sales and resale shops and if he's so concerned ask him to purchase it. why is the reunion going to be at your house if it's not finished anyway? they don't have homes?
It's really not your fault that you don't understand because this post is extremely ambiguous. Since the fml said my dad came over, it's safe to assume that it's OP's house. the 30,000 dollars business refers to the renovations that had previously been made. The tidbit with the "my dad and my sister's are embarrassed because we still have a picnic table" (roughly translated because I'm on mobile) makes more sense when you realize that "we" probably refers to whoever OP lives with, maybe her significant other. Another reason it throws you off is because it should be "had" completed the renovations to turn it into past perfect tense. It also seems like the cousins will be visiting OP's house and not the dad's /sisters' house.
Well there are a lot of things it could be: Having their dad and sisters round only for the guests to be ungrateful and seem embarrassed by them, not being able to afford a table because of the renovations, being ordered around even though they're forty three years old and its their house or the fact that their dad's cousins are showing up soon so they're going to end up with more ungrateful guests
If you're gonna spend/care that much about your house, why would you still have a plastic table?
Yeah, they probably were waiting to buy a nice table until the space was done. For that much money, they are probably tearing things down and putting in all new floors/walls/appliances etc. and maybe new plumbing and electric as well. You don't want to ruin brand new furniture while all that is going on.
What was the FML here, the dad part or the cousin part, cause I'm not really sure which
I'm sorry but what does Italy have to do with anything...? (sorry about my English)
Obviously he can't actually make you do anything, but if I were him I'd be embarrassed too.
