I'll start: I had just started dating a girl and she hadn't met my family yet. My parents thought it would be fun to invite her to our family Christmas. She lived in Wyoming and I was in Colorado Springs, so it didn't make sense for me to pick her up and go together; we decided to just meet there.
Of course, I'd been planning to get there before her so she wouldn't have to meet my family all by herself, but there was a huge traffic jam on the way there and she ended up having to spend an hour with her new boyfriend's family, all strangers. My family of course was nice to her but I felt terrible!
Anyone else want to chime in?
