Are You (Pea)Nuts?!

| Related | September 13, 2014

(My niece is a toddler and has just been diagnosed with a peanut allergy. It’s her birthday party and even though my sister specifically warned everyone about the allergy, her in-laws still brought peanuts to eat.)

Sister: *to her father-in-law* “Please do not eat those anywhere near [Niece]. Do not go near her with them.”

Father-In-Law: “Yeah, I won’t.”

(A bit later from across the yard, she sees him grabbing a handful of peanuts, shoving them in his mouth to eat. My niece toddles by.)

Father-In-Law: *grabs niece* “Give Grandpa a kiss.”

Sister: *screams* “STOP!”

(Her husband is closer and is able to grab my niece out of the father-in-law’s hands.)

Husband: “What are you doing!? Are you trying to kill [Niece]!”

Father-In-Law:  “I just wanted a kiss.”

Husband: “You’ve got a mouth full of peanuts, bits on your lips, and full peanuts in your f****** beard. [Sister] told you she was allergic to peanuts. You could have f****** killed her!”

Father-In-Law:  “I thought she was joking!”
