Woman makes brouchure to hand out at cousin's wedding to stop family's questions
Family weddings can be happy occasions but they can also be pretty intense.
Your entire family in one room, especially if you don’t see them often, means lots of questions about all aspects of your life.
Melissa Croce was so sick of all the small talk, she created a brochure about her job, where she lives in New York and a flowchart of reasons why she’s single for her cousin’s wedding.
Posting the images on Twitter, she said ‘I jokingly told my coworkers I would make a brochure to hand out to relatives/family friends at my cousin’s wedding but i was too committed to the bit to quit.’
The brochure starts with ‘so you haven’t seen Melissa Croce in several years: A Primer.’
She then has a list of frequently asked questions about her job and living in New York.
The questions explain that she works for a published called Macmillan, marketing children’s books.
She stresses that she just markets the books and doesn’t get to read all day and won’t edit them.
When it comes to living in New York, she brings up the inevitable question about the city being ‘loud, crowded and expensive.’
She says: ‘I was going to tell you an honest answer but your question seems judgmental, so out of spite I’m going to tell you instead that I LOVE IT and IT IS GREAT AND PERFECT and sure it is ALL OF THOSE THINGS but living in New York isn’t for JUST ANYBODY DAHLING, SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST STRONGER THAN OTHERS.’
She adds that she lives in Brooklyn with a roommate and works in Manhattan near Wall Street but she doesn’t actually go to Times Square a lot.
And in response to the ‘I should come visit you!’ statement, she says ‘Should you, though?’
The third page of the brochure runs through the questions about her love life.
The whole leaflet really captured the attention of others who face the onslaught of questions for family events.
