Ladies… leave the fellas at home—really. And this statement applies to anyone prone to bringing their partners to traditionally spouseless events. It doesn’t matter if you’re attached at the hip for every waking moment of your life; otherwise, when it comes to something like a bachelor or bachelorette party, your spouse should not be involved.
Leave the ol’ boy at home and go have a night out on the town with the girls. This really shouldn’t be a conversation in the first place, but—if it comes down to it—this goes double if someone else is financing the trip.
This disgruntled sister is financing her sister’s bachelorette party, paying for accommodation for all of the bride’s broke friends who “all have some kind of financial hardship.” Rather than watching the possibility of a bachelorette party fall to the wayside, the sister offered to pay for everyone’s rooms. Of course, when choosing beggars are presented with the offering of something for free, they have to take every opportunity to make the offer work as much in their favor as possible to suit their ends. It wasn’t long before one of her sister’s friends was talking about bringing her partner along, calling it “[their] vacation” and making plans for him to attend—violating the entire premise of the weekend the sister was financing for them.
The sister shared screenshots of the subsequent exchange that took place between herself and the bridesmaid/friend on Reddit’s r/ChoosingBeggars subreddit, asking readers whether or not she was in the wrong (AITA?) for her response to the bridesmaid. Readers were split on the issue, with most taking the original poster’s side but some insisting that the original poster had overstepped and was too rude with their response to “a simple question.”
