You have to hand it to this lady. She has audacity!
This 18-year-old had started doing long distance with her boyfriend and after three months apart, she learned that he and his family were vacationing at an amusement park a few hours away to celebrate his sister’s birthday. Rather than see if her boyfriend could extend his visit for some one-on-one time, she decided to invite herself on the trip and insert herself into a vacation where she was clearly not wanted. This thread was posted on Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole subreddit by u/ultimate_yikesss.
Her boyfriend sent several signals that she shouldn’t come, which she acknowledged and actively ignored. She also expressed frustration that the sister’s girlfriend was invited and she wasn’t. Perhaps that’s because the event was, I don’t know, the sister’s birthday?! This, of course, didn’t seem to cross the Redditor’s mind.
She admitted in her post to having taken out some of her anger on her boyfriend and although they have since made up and his parents have given the two of them some more time to spend together, the tension remains. We think that tension will continue to remain until this couple breaks up like they clearly need to.
The Redditor’s boyfriend and his family were not out of line to structure their vacation around the sister’s birthday. It certainly was not his parents’ obligation to prioritize this unstable relationship.
We’ve seen other stories about couples on the rocks. This relationship fell apart after the boyfriend used approximately $800 worth of his significant other’s skincare products.
