31 People Share The Dumb Family Fights That They Still Talk About

Family fights are the most epic because there’s basically no escape. You can become estranged from your family, but for the most part, people are drawn back into the fold again and again, even if it’s only for two winter holidays set too close together every year. That means arguments can be long-standing and unresolved for YEARS. Tensions get high and then people explode over ridiculous things—which makes for good stories.

The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon likes to play hashtag games with his followers to read on the show. His latest one is #DumbestFamilyFights, and it has delivered true gold to Twitter. First, he shared his own stupidest family argument, writing, “An aunt once got mad that none of us wished her dog a happy birthday. When we called to apologize, she said he was too hurt to speak to us right now.”

The replies and hashtagged stories are hilarious to read, mainly because they’re not about your family. Enjoy:
