You know things are gonna get heated when you laugh in ANYONE’S face…
And this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page highlights a story from a woman who did just that…to her mother’s friend…
Read on to see what happened…
AITA for laughing in my mother’s friends face when she told me to ‘go to my room’?
“I (25,F) don’t speak to my mother, like at all. I had to go to my mother’s house today to pick up an important document that I left behind when I moved out seven years ago.
As soon as I got to the house, my mother suddenly had a massive ’emergency’ and realised that it was apparently her friend’s funeral today and she completely forgot about it. I couldn’t help but internally roll my eyes, as there is always some drama hence why I have gone no/very low contact.
She asked me if I would watch my two younger brothers (7 and 11) whilst she went to the funeral, and I said absolutely not, as it’s my only day off, I have plans, and I have no relationship with them due to my mother stopping them from seeing me for years. I just wanted to get my birth certificate and leave.
My mother asked her friend if she would babysit and asked me to stay for 10 minutes until her friend came. I didn’t even get the opportunity to say no before my mother left the house. I was seething but resolved to wait 10 minutes. My mother’s friend turned up and started berating me for not agreeing to look after my brother’s whilst my mother went to the funeral.
I said ‘I don’t have anything to do with my mother, it’s my day off work, and I’m under no obligation to look after anyone else’s children’. My mother’s friend then told me to ‘go to my room’. I laughed in her face and started to leave the house, and she asked me where I was going.
And I told her, ‘my room, at my apartment, that I pay for with my big girl job. Because I’m an adult, not a child. And don’t ever speak down to me like that again’. And I left.
My mother has left me loads of messages and missed calls saying I’m an AH for the way I spoke to her friend. I do admit I look kinda young but I still am not happy with the way my mother’s friend spoke to me.
