12 Signs Your Family Is Dysfunctional

With the holidays around we're all spending lots of time of time with our families, which is good for the most part. But, if your family is anything like mine, it's probably a little dysfunctional. Not sure if your family is considered 'dysfunctional'? Well, if you answer 'yes' to most of these questions, your family probably is. I'm sorry in advance, and I feel your pain.

1. Their idea of talking is more of a yell

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day
https://www.pexels.com/photo/six-white-ceramic-mugs-1251175/
