Thanks, ginnyjo, I DID need a laugh today...or rather a palate cleanser. On the other hand, I've realized that I made a lucky decision to weasel out of holiday dinners on an election year Europe solo for Christmas is looking so much brighter. I was feeling a little pre-trip homesickness. NOT ANYMORE.

Barb, if you're still checking in- I suspect part of the problem is that you went to a familiar, beloved place with the Divas. That aspect, at least in my case, makes it much harder to put up with nonsense. But I agree with whoever said it could have been worse- you did an admirable job of staying independent. Bravo!

I need a laugh today too.
The first two paragraphs of the trip report catch my attention already.

thanks for topping this AJP - I'd heard about it but never read it. Another classic.

Now can someone please find the thread about the person who brings the food [coleslaw?] to the party only to have it returned to him when he goes home? And the one which starts "how do you know they aren't axe murderers?"

This classic report should stay on the home page so that anyone who starts a thread with "I have been asked to plan a trip for my extended family" or "I am in charge of planning a trip for a group of seven" can immediately be forewarned.

Barb, bless you for this gift that keeps giving, and AJPeabody, thanks for the New Year's present.

I just reread this again (just Barb's parts, not all the comments.) A cautionary tale, to be certain. Now I am itching to return to Italy, but not with a group!

Thanks for posting this Barb, and for continuing to post even while some folks were hammering at you! I really enjoyed reading this (so sorry though that you had to go through it!). I'm also very happy that you posted the updates... very nice that all the friendships managed to survive.

Thanks for topping it, AJP!
