Well, that seems pretty harsh, now doesn’t it?
You bet it does!
But did this woman act like an a**hole when she told her sister that she’d say “I told you so” if she gets cancer?
Let’s see what the heck is going on here…
AITA for telling my sister I would say “I told you so” if she gets cancer?
“I (f27) really enjoy motocross, and although I’m an amateur I spend a lot of my time and money on it. My sister (f31) has always kinda despised the sport. She is always saying that it’s dangerous and that I shouldn’t be doing it because I will get hurt.
Three weeks ago I fell on a jump and broke my ankle and shattered my knee. It is still unsure what kind of recovery I will make, and I was (and still kinda am) mentally in a bad place as well. Like I said, I really love drifting around on my motorcycle and I would be devastated if I can never do it again.
When my sister came to visit me at the hospital, the first thing she said to me was “I told you this would happen.”
I was shocked by this, especially because she did not say anything else after that. No empathy or compassion at all, it almost seemed like she was happy to finally be proven right.
Now onto the part where I think I might be the a**hole. For context, my sister has been s**king ci**rettes for the past 14 years. I have never really said anything bad about it, except for when she asked about it or tried to convince me of the benefits of it. So when she said “I told you so” to me at the hospital, I replied with “nice response, I wil remember it for when you get lung cancer.”
She got incredibly upset, called me a bi**h and left. I have not spoken to her since, but I have gotten some angry texts from our parents saying that I crossed the line. I don’t stand behind what I said because I would never do that to her if she would get lung cancer, but I meant it more as an example to show how insensitive her comment was.
And here’s how people reacted on Reddit.
One person said she’s NTA and that her sister can obviously dish it out but can’t take it.
Another reader said they think everyone in this story sucks.
And this individual said it sounds like they were both being sh**ty.
