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 stepdaughter. 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 grandson. 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 grandfather!
"And you think you have family problems!"
