Well, this sure is a strange headline, don’t you think?
But you never know what you’re gonna get from the stories people write on Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page!
And here’s another beauty for you!
Take a look and see if you think this person was out of line.
AITAH because when my brother and his husband adopted a baby I asked if they got a dog or a cat?
“My brother and his husband recently adopted their son. It was kind of sudden, baby dropped at the fire station sort of situation.
I had known they were in the process of adopting, but as far as I knew they were kind of early on. I don’t know anything about the process so I guess I thought a pregnant woman looked through stacks of applicants, picked some family, met with them, and they went to the hospital to get the baby when it was born.
Basically I thought there would be a lot of lead up to them becoming dads and I would have a heads up.
So my bro had called me last week and said, “congrats you’re an uncle! You have a little nephew.”
And reflexively I just said, “oh nice, did you get a dog or a cat?”
My bro was silent for a bit and I was thinking that’s not a hard question? And he finally says, “a human baby, we adopted a baby boy…”
And I was like, “s**t sorry, that was fast.”
My mom was absolutely HORRIFIED at this story and I’ve been deemed the biggest family a**hole this year over it. My brother doesn’t seem mad, his husband seems to be very annoyed with me.
No one understands why I would ask that, so I mean, idk, am I an AH here? I’m not neurotypical, so it’s hard for me to know if maybe they’re teasing me and not actually that mad.
However, if this situation needs a real sit down kind of apology for me being a major AH then I want to do that.”
Here’s what people had to say on Reddit.
This reader said they’re NTA…and that this story made them laugh.
And this Reddit user said they realized they made a mistake and they can buy a gift for the baby and let it blow over.
Another individual said they’re NTA and they’ll be telling this story for years to come.
What do you think?

Thanks a lot!
