FOOD FOR THOUGHTS

Two men met at a bus stop and struck up a conversation. One of
them kept complaining of family problems. Finally, the other man said: “You think you have family
problems? Listen to my situation. A few years ago I met a young widow with a grown-up daughter and we got
married. “Later my father married my step daughter. That made my
stepdaughter my stepmother and my
father became my stepson. Also, my wife became mother in-law of
her father-in-law. Then the daughter of my wife,
my stepmother, had a son. This boy was my half-brother because he was my father’s son, but he was also the son of my wife’s daughter which made him my wife’s grand-son.That made me the grandfather of my half- brother. “This was nothing until my wife and I had a son. Now the half-sister of my son, my stepmother, is also the
grandmother. “This makes my father the brother-in-law of my child, whose stepsister is my father’s wife, I’m my stepmother’s brother-in-
law, my wife is her own child’s aunt, my son is my father’s nephew and I’m
My own son’s grandfather! And you
think you have family wahala!
