Hey, I guess she was having a bad day, huh?
Or maybe she’s just a little bit overly sensitive?
I guess that’s up for YOU to decide as you read this woman’s story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page.
Check out what she had to say!
AITA for making a scene at my sister’s wedding, which she spent more than 10k on, over a joke?
“My sister (24f) got married last week.
Her wedding was very well planned out- we received invitations 6 months before and my sister poured about 10,000$ into this wedding- and that’s without catering costs added. She also invited over 100 people- it was an ethnic wedding, so there were some friends of friends.
The ceremony was beautiful. There were so many pictures taken, everyone was having a great time, I dream of eating the food I ate there just once again in my life. Even the rehearsal dinner a week before was magical.
The issue came after my sister and her husband said “I do”- it was the reception. The cake was cut, and everything was great. They were laughing and having a good time, and then they went back up and said their speeches. Her husband’s speech was touching with a humourous twist. When it came time for her to say hers, however, things went south.
She started off great, making a few jokes about a few family members. Nothing harmful. But then it got to me. She made a joke about considering having a dry wedding because I was “such an addict”. To clarify, I have struggled with an alcohol addiction, and she is well aware.
She was never really supportive of my recovery journey because she always saw me as an addict. My sister has this idea that once you struggle with an addiction, you go crazy and lose control if you get the chance again. No matter if you recover or not, in her eyes, you’re always an addict.
Everyone laughed and I felt humiliated. She was laughing too and then continued. I didn’t want to interrupt her so I just waited. I felt like crying and screaming at the same time, it was a rage yet sadness I’d never experienced before.
After her speech, I spoke up. I brought her somewhere private. I told her that I didn’t appreciate her joke and it wasn’t funny, and that I felt she humiliated me. She got so angry and started yelling, things like “I have a whole wedding waiting for me back there, who do you think you are to bring me here and waste my time” and “It’s just a joke, don’t be so p**sy”. She accused me of ruining her wedding and started screaming. She left back to the ceremony and I just stood there.
Once I came back, everyone was staring at me and my sister was sobbing in my dad’s arms. My dad proceeded to yell at me telling me I ruined my sister’s wedding and made a scene. I yelled back and when I noticed a lot of people were watching, I got angry and left.
Now all my family’s mad at me and they won’t stop sending me texts telling me I should apologize. I don’t want to. AITA?”
Here’s what Reddit users had to say.
This reader said she’s NTA and she was classy and strong.
Another Reddit user also said she’s NTA…but said her sister is an a**hole.
And this individual agreed and that what her sister did was cruel.
