Her Kids Created A “Mayonnaise” Birthday Cake For Her Ailing Stepdaughter’s Birthday. ‘The boys love her that’s why they act like this.’
by Matthew Gilligan
Some people are just prone to exaggeration…
This woman thinks her husband fits into that category of humans, but is she right?
Or is she acting like a jerk?
Let’s see what’s going on in this story from Reddit’s “Am I the *******?” page.
AITA for telling my husband he exaggerated when he said my kids ruined his daughter’s birthday?
“Last week was my stepdaughter’s (SD) 14th birthday. She was in the hospital days prior for a medical issue and now she’s better. My husband threw her a small birthday party.
Someone threw a wrench into the special day.
Unbeknowest to me, my boys (16) & (12) decided to pull a funny prank and mess with the birthday cake that they made for her. Instead of adding icing on the cake, they added mayonnaise.
And it got ugly.
It didn’t go well and my SD’s reaction was to cry.
My husband blew up at the boys for what they did but they said they were just trying to prank her since it’s the norm and they always prank each others.
My husband said it was the wrong time to do this on her birthday especially after getting out of the hospital.
Now things are pretty testy.
He told the boys they ruined her birthday but I told him he exaggerated with this statement. He got upset and yelled at me for defending this behavior and being an enabler.
I don’t think I am because the boys love her that’s why they act like this, but my husband was having none of it.
Both he and SD aren’t speaking to me nor the boys. AITA for saying he exaggerated?”
Now let’s see how folks reacted.
This person rephrased it for her and called her an *******.
This person said she’s to blame but she can teach her sons something.
Another Reddit user said this was not a prank…
This individual said she’s enabling her two sons.
And this person made a prediction…
Sounds like these two have a lot of issues to work out.
Let’s wish them good luck!
