This is a question When I met the parents

When my g/f first met my parents for lunch, my Dad leant over and ate food off her plate. My mother was mortified, I was a bit confused, she thought it was wonderfull and that she'd been accepted.

We at B3ta are sure you've had worse than this though... tell us all about it.

Ever seen that film, Aberdeen? That could've been my Dad. He was an alcoholic ex-sailor who lived alone and had frequent relapses. One of the first times he met my then-partner, he had a black eye from falling over drunk and was sick all weekend from the hangover...

The last time he visited England was when he came over with me and that same partner several years ago. The journey itself was horrendous, we spent 24 hours on a boat and then drove 5 hours in a car on the "wrong" side of the road. Dad relapsed the minute we left the harbour and drank heavily all the way there. When we finally arrived at my sister's house, he greeted my mother (who'd divorced him about 14 years previously and barely seen him since) thus: "I'm pissed".

Meeting my brother-in-law for the first time shortly after this, he came out with this little gem: "I was unfaithful in 1973". News to us, I can tell you.

Brother-in-law deserves a medal for not running away screaming...
