I got a question for the board. Do you have in your family or know of people who are just unaware of how to act in social situations. People that are just off for whatever reason. Don't bathe properly or dress acceptably, interrupt you while you're talking. Could be anything. Have you ever seen the Barry Humphries Sir Les Patterson character. This dude is seriously gross.

Enjoy

Chowhound, you always have the funniest threads!

Don't we ALL have socially repulsive family members? Where do I even begin?

My step father gave a toast at my reception that went something like this..."May all of life's ups and downs be under the sheets"

My husbands cousin always seems to be scratching his backside. I have often wondered if there is any skin left back there!

My second cousin carries on of those plastic toothpicks and is always diggind away at his teeth...NASTY!

I'll end now...I am beginning to blush!

I come from a family where one of my parents is socially perfect and smooth and the other parent is awkward and very shy. I've learned to have compassion for those that are shy and I've picked up social skills from my other parent but yes I've met people that are just flat out overbearing, harsh, backhanded, pushy, stinky, loud, cold blooded, sarcastic, etc...and yes they are repulsive...

I was in a student organization and one of the very obese officers would show up in dirt stained shorts, too small of a shirt covered in sweat, dirty fingers, and beaten down shoes and would talk non-stop about himself at meetings. I was like what in the world and who in the world..but people accepted him so I just nodded and smiled along with everyone else. It was a disgrace.
