This Redditor was so ready to celebrate his birthday. However, his party almost got ruined when his cousin’s pregnant wife decided to do a gender reveal out of nowhere!
A Surprise Party
OP (Original Poster) celebrated his birthday two weeks before this story was posted. He explained that his mom planned a surprise party for him since she had a spare key to his house.
Some of those invited included OP’s 26-year-old cousin and his 26-year-old pregnant wife.
He shared, “I don’t have anything against my cousin, but I do with his wife.”
OP shared that his cousin used to live with him when he was in college. When his cousin was in his third year, he met his now-wife.
He wrote, “It was all fine until, in his last year of college, his girlfriend moved in with us.”
Everything was fine for the first few weeks. However, things immediately took a turn for the worse when OP found out his cousin’s then-girlfriend was coming into his room without permission and stealing money from him!
Kicking Them Out
OP confronted her about it, but she denied anything related to the incident. Sadly, it kept on happening even two weeks after OP first found out about it.
He eventually had enough, so OP kicked them out.
There weren’t any apparent issues with OP and his cousin’s relationship. However, he did note that they’d barely talked to each other, apart from his cousin’s wedding.
However, OP and his cousin started rekindling their relationship during his birthday party.
OP wrote, “Me and my cousin were catching up with each other. It was all going good until I said, ‘How has yours and your wife’s life been after the wedding?’”
None of Your Business
OP knew his cousin was about to say something. However, his wife suddenly interrupted and said, “Stop being nosy. That’s none of your business.”
He then apologized and walked away.
What Are You Scheming?
At this point, OP was talking to his mom when he saw his cousin leave to go to his car. He then came back with a giant balloon.
OP’s cousin’s wife then said, “Listen up, everybody. I have an announcement to make. We will be doing our gender reveal here.”
No, You’re Not!
OP immediately disagreed with the plan and told her to stop pushing it. However, his cousin’s wife said, “You can’t stop me. Bring the balloon.”
Putting an End to Things
As OP’s cousin walked up to his wife, OP grabbed the gender reveal balloon out of his hand. He let it fly away without popping it!
He then returned to the party and kicked his cousin and his wife out. OP got yelled at by his cousin for “ruining” their gender reveal, and his wife started crying.
OP shared, “Half of the guests leave and say I’m a bad person for what I did.”
Am I Wrong?
OP hasn’t talked to his cousin and his wife since. Unfortunately, his family still thinks he’s a “bad person” because of what transpired during his birthday party.
Now he’s asking, “Am I the a**hole?”
What Redditors Think
Users said that OP’s cousin and his wife were hijacking his party, and they had no right to.
A woman wrote, “Not the a**hole. People need to stop hijacking other people’s events to save money. At least ask the person before you announce crap on their occasion! How selfish and self-centered do you have to be to make someone else’s party about you?” Another said, “Doubt it was even to save money. The wife hates OP and just wanted to steal the attention, and as an added bonus, pi** OP off.”
What Went Through His Family Members’ Heads?
Some people pointed out that OP’s family members might have also been in on the ruse.
“I hate sounding cynical but does anyone in OP’s family like him? Because it sounds like his family may have just tried to use a surprise party for him as a front for his cousin and his wife to have a gender reveal. Sounds weird, yeah, since they went through all the motions of actually setting up the party, but it’s also kind of telling if truly no one else in his family had a problem with the cousin and his wife blatantly trying to hijack the event like that,” wrote one user.
What do you think? Was OP too much?
