Intercultural Marriage Truth

Going to dinner with his (white) family at 6pm:

5:00

Him: Why aren’t you ready yet?
Me: It’s only 5! We’ve got an hour!

5:15

Him: We’re going to be late! Why are you still in your pajamas?
Me: Psh… it’s family! Calm down.

5:30

Him: We’re going. NOW. Dinner’s at 6. We are so late.
Me: *grumble*

6:00

[arrive, everyone’s happy]
