    We always have Thanksgiving at my house. We get it catered by Lucille's BBQ and only ask folks to bring a dessert, small side dish or drinks.

    My cheap brother always refuses to bring anything and makes me look like an asshole when I ask him to bring something.

    He's not poor and makes about 100 large a year. When I ask him if he can pick up a 12 pack of Sierra Nevada or Tecate or go to the 99 Cent Store and pick up about 5 of the two liter sodas, he'll say, "Give that job to someone else."

    When I press him on it, he'll say, "You don't understand, I'm a single parent. If it's a problem, maybe I won't come." All his kids are in their 20's. If it wasn't for my mom I wouldn't invite him.

    Anyone have an asshole like that in their lives and will see them on Thursday?
