Do your parents do assigned seating at family get togethers?
Things like Thanksgiving, Easter, etc where you gather around a table. Mine do (mom) and it’s annoying as hell. She’s trying to organize things and have this dinner like she has planned out but we’re grown adults I don’t need to be told where to sit.

Adults at big table, kids at the kid tables. But no assigned seats.

The grown ups at the big table, kids at the small, bar, whatever. It is what it is.

Stfu and let your mom have her moment. Consider it recompense for having to put up with the likes of this bs from you. “But I’m a grown arse man mom”

My parents are divorced but my mom does this shite. I fricking hate it

Almost all of her side of the family sucks ass. I just want to bail as soon as it's socially acceptable

Pretty sure that's the unjust assignment OP's complaining about.

My mom makes name cards and assigns people seating based on who they'd be least likely to get along with. I'm convinced of this shite.

She sat me next to my socialist cousin and her neutered, skinny Jean wearing husband last Christmas. I had like 4 bourbons before the meal. It did not go well

It's an unwritten policy. Otherwise there will be fights.

We have an enormous extended family so there is never assigned seating because of the chaos. For Thanksgiving, the guys are usually eating in the recliners in front of the tv watching the football games. The girls are gathered around the table eating talking about their nonsense.

re: Do your parents do assigned seating at family get togethers?
Since she’s prepping the meal, she probably wants to make sure she’s seated closest to the kitchen. Also, she keeps up with who is a leftie, etc. and where to put them. I’m not a mom, but at dinner gatherings I always make placecards for each guest as a nice touch.

Why does it bother you so much?
