The holidays can be a very stressful time of year for family and friends but unfortunately, this man in Illinois let his anger get the best of him, which will cause the guy some major problems.

Don't Take Invitations So Personally

I guess I'm just wired a little differently. If I'm not invited somewhere, it really doesn't bother me. I tell my friends, it's not a big deal and don't worry I won't be offended. In fact, many times you're actually doing me a favor. Apparently, this man in Chicago doesn't feel the same way.

I'm a big fan of food so of course, I enjoy Thanksgiving quite a bit. In this case, it's nice to be invited somewhere because there's a lot of work that goes into making that meal. If I'm not, it's okay because I'll figure something out. Once again, that same guy in the Windy City doesn't agree with me.
