AITA for telling my parents I won't attend their christmas celebration until they send my husband a separate invitation?.

Update: 'Parents have disinvited me': Immature husband throws a fit when in-laws don't send him his own invitation to Christmas, gets couple disinvited

The proverbial phrase “Don't look a gift horse in the mouth” feels incredibly relevant when discussing invitations to Christmas celebrations — what with the whole gift-giving thing and all. Still, one might consider repurposing this into something that directly fits the occasion. I'm thinking something here along the lines of “Don't interpret an invitation on the recipient line.” — or something of that nature. Like, your name's already on the invitation dude. It's not normal to send couples mul…

AITA for going to get ice cream instead of going home after my flight landed? | He promised he would pick me up from the airport and we would spend time together but he sent his brother instead. I was upset even though my brother-in-law told me something came up which is why he was there instead.

'He sent his brother instead. I was upset...' Wife drags BIL along on involuntary 2-hour ice-cream excursion, wonders if she's wrong

There are some things on the internet that remind you that people never really change — even when they reach adulthood. The sheer amount of immaturity and general inability to reach logical conclusions that one witnesses as they go about their day is a testament to this fact — as is the existence of 'Disney Adults.' Cheap shots at adult fanatics of Walt's work aside — this AmItheA**hole thread is rife with poor decision-making and reads like a horror B movie script: with every issue being able…

MIL Insults Stage Manager's Job After Requesting Discounted Tickets to Upcoming Show

If you want a favor from someone… Isn't it kind of insane to insult the person who you're requesting said favor from? Bonus insanity points for insulting whatever skill or position that is allowing them to do said favor for you. You can't have your ignorant-ass cake and eat it too.

AITA for kicking my mother out of my wedding? | My mom has never liked my relationship with my wife (Helena), she thinks I moved on ''too fast'' and refuses to believe/admit that my love for my Helena is bigger and truer that the one I had for my late wife.”

'My mom loved her as a daughter': Son bans grieving mother from wedding to new bride after she asks him to invite his late wife's parents

This guy is something else. It's clear that this mother has been having trouble moving on from the death of her beloved daughter-in-law, the two of them had a close connection, and she had truly "loved her as her own daughter." It's completely understandable to hang on to the memory of loved ones who have been lost -not that her son seems to be. The cold and callous way in which he refers to his deceased bride is startling and the first thing that stood out to me in this post. Sure, maybe the m…

"I got sick of it.': Guy ditches entitled in-laws after endless complaints about a holiday HE paid for

When you finance a vacation for your wife's entire family, you might expect to receive at least one or two words of thanks and gratitude. Well, sometimes the expectation doesn't quite align with reality, and sometimes it really doesn't align. This is how it was when u/Murky_Ad_193 decided to bankroll the entirety of a Disney getaway for their in-laws. They paid for everything , right down to a “McMansion” for the family to stay in, groceries, and a rental truck for them to get around in. But, a…

Woman Secretly Brings Serial-Bill-Dodger Sister-in-Law’s Wallet to Restaurant so She Can’t Shirk the Bill

We all know this person, Mr./Ms. “Whoopsie Wallet" who never seems to have their wallet, cash, card, or phone on them when it's time to cough up some dough for something. With so many ways to pay in the modern world (who is ever without their phone?), it's amazing that these people have somehow managed to continue to exist. Yet, somehow, they've managed to continue not paying for anything and everything that they possibly can. This thread was posted to Reddit's r/AITA (Am I the A-Hole) by Reddi…
