Sounds like you're a good friend of Violet

About Violet: Terrifying matriarch Violet is addicted to a cocktail of prescription drugs; her chemical dependence makes Amy Winehouse look like a lightweight. Violet lashes out at her three daughters (and everyone else she encounters) whenever she’s under the influence – which is pretty much all of the time. "I am a drug addict. I am addicted to drugs, pills, 'specially downers. Y'see these little blue babies? These are my best f**king friends and they never let me down. Try to get 'em away from me and I'll eat you alive."

You like to hang out with Mattie Fae

About Mattie Fae: Sharp tongued, hard-as-nails Mattie Fae is always on hand to point out her family’s failings and f*ck-ups with a devastating put down. She sometimes sees herself as an outsider, but with a sanctimonious husband and a painfully useless son, you get the sense that she probably prefers it that way."Little Charles isn't complicated, he's just unemployed… Honey, you have to be smart to be complicated."

You share Little Charles' drive and dynamism

About Little Charles: Little Charles is a world-class underachiever. His impressive portfolio of skills includes being staggeringly lazy, dazzlingly unmotivated and spectacularly downtrodden. He has a natural ability to incur the wrath of his nearest and dearest – especially his mother. Whatever the task, you can count on Little Charles to fail with startling panache.“Too bad there isn’t a job where they pay you to sit around watching television.”

You're not from around here, are you?

It seems that you’re completely normal. No drug addiction, no depraved sexual tastes, no verbal or physical abuse of family members. You probably have a successful and fulfilling career, perfect relationships, and a family which supports you all the way. Congratulations on your issue-free existence. You’re welcome to a seat at the Weston family table, but don’t stay too long – sit near the exit and have your car keys ready… You might find that you want to leave earlier than you planned.
