Woman Wants to Know if She’s Wrong for Refusing to Sleep Outside in Her Mom’s Yard on Christmas

Okay, this is a weird one

And I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a headline quite like this one before…

But that’s why Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page is so great!

You never know what you’re gonna get!

So check out this woman’s story and see if you think she’s to blame here.

AITA for causing a family rift because I don’t want to sleep outside in my mom’s yard on Christmas?

“I, 18f, am the youngest out of four kids. My siblings are 31m, 28f and 25m.

We were raised by our dad and stepmom, and our bio mom lives in another country with her husband. She wants me and my siblings to spend Christmas with her this year and has offered to pay for our transport and visas.

My siblings are all married and have kids and are gonna bring their spouses and kids with them. Our mom’s house is quite big and she said she’ll spread out air mattresses in the living room and there’s a guest room.

She didn’t say anything specifically to me about where I’d be sleeping so I assumed I’d be sleeping on one of the air mattresses.

Well one of my brothers told me that my mom expects me to sleep in a tent outside. I honestly thought he was messing with me but when I asked my mom about it it turns out she did. The conversation wasn’t in English but it basically went like this:

Me: [brother’s name] said that you expect me to sleep outside in a tent? Is this true?

Mom: yeah, I thought you would be fine with having your own tent.

Me: why didn’t you talk to me about it?

Mom: I didn’t think it would be a problem. Is it a problem?

Me: it is, I don’t want to sleep outside.

Mom: I don’t know what you want me to do, there’s too many of you.

Me: can I sleep on the couch?

Mom: no, [husband’s name] likes to watch TV late, you’ll be a nuisance.

Me: I don’t know then, but im not sleeping outside. I’d rather not go.

My mom told all my siblings about the conversation and now they’re all mad at me and told me to suck it up and go. They said I’m being selfish and making a fuss about nothing, and that I can’t expect any of them to sleep outside with their spouses or kids.

I told my dad about it and he’s now royally p**sed off with my mom and said that she’s being “a mega b**ch” and alienating me on purpose and they had a huge argument on the phone. My siblings are all mad at me for causing this.”

Let’s see what Reddit users had to say.

One person said she’s NTA and now she knows where her mother’s priorities are.
