Sitting in front of the boss’s office. None of that went well. Not exactly sure why though. My improvised sales pitch as a british beggar with a peg leg and - get this - A CRAB ARM - was spot on!

Maya Anderson
@mayaneedanverss

All the main floor people are being called into the meeting room for a special announcement. This is it. This is my promotion.

@imeanitswhateva

Whoever wrote “YOU SUCK” on both our lockers should really make their own font for their handwriting.

Jonathan Anderson
@itsdatboyjonn

Content’s a bit lacking tho...

Later that day

@fordthethespian

So I’m fired.

Maya Anderson
@mayaneedanverss

So I quit… and got permanently banned.

Later that night

Got a call from Uncle Mike. He says he’s dying. He wants to see the family before he goes.

Ford Anderson
@fordthethespian

Is she gonna cry? I hope she doesn’t cry? Does Maya even cry? Wait, have I ever seen this woman cry?

Maya Anderson
@mayaneedanverss

This is the opportunity I need! Something that will push me forward. Push this family forward. I’d be a fool not to take it!

Maya Anderson
@mayaneedanverss

We leave tomorrow at 5 AM.

The next day
Marie Anderson
@imeanitswhateva

Am I the only one who feels weird about using the potential death of a relative as a way to move up in the world as sort of...grimy?

Marie Anderson
@imeanitswhateva

Uncle Mike’s dying and wants to see his family but we’re just visiting to make sure we’re a priority in his will!

Jonathan Anderson
@itsdatboyjonn

Voice your concerns to mom, then.

Later that week
Jonathan Anderson
@itsdatboyjonn

Oh shit. Aunt Lena is here.

Marie Anderson
@imeanitswhateva

They’re the only family I know who would wear matching custom velour tracksuits while eating burgers with knives and forks.

Jonathan Anderson
@itsdatboyjonn

Okay so apparently Aunt Lena are visiting Uncle Mike too...

Marie Anderson
@imeanitswhateva

Uh oh… I sense competition. And if I sense it mom def senses it too.

Soon after
Marie Anderson
@imeanitswhateva

Okay so now two dudes just hopped out of the bushes and started maniacally laughing at us???

Jonathan Anderson
@itsdatboyjonn

Mom just said it’s Nick and Dale Danver-Alan, our country kin. Apparently Dale is mom’s cousin from Mississippisianabama Georgia.

Marie Anderson
@imeanitswhateva

Dale and his husband Nick are also trying to get a piece of the inheritance from Uncle Mike…

Jonathan Anderson
@itsdatboyjonn

Is everybody on this side of Mom’s family this extra? Will I ever become this extra? Please someone stop me before I become that extra.
