A young woman and her fiancé were helping out his sister by letting her stay. While there, she ate all the wedding cake samples while everyone was away at work.
OP (Original Poster) is a 27-year-old woman, and her fiancé, Leo, is a 27-year-old man. They allowed his 32-year-old sister, Maya, to stay with them while she had relationship issues with her husband.
An Important Treat
OP and her fiancé had gotten samples for their upcoming wedding cake. They were going to wait and try them all out together with Maya.
What Is Going On?
When OP got home from work, she saw that her fiancé and Maya had been fighting. He yelled at her, and OP saw the box of samples was left out and open on the table.
Enjoyed With Friends
Leo told her that while they had been at work, Maya had invited some friends to their house. The group then ate the wedding cake samples they were waiting to try together.
How Could You?
OP was upset and asked Maya why “the h***” she would do something like that. They had already planned on eating the samples together and rating them for the upcoming wedding.
Maya told Leo and OP that she had been feeling particularly down about the issues with her husband. She invited friends to help her get the “pick-me-up” she needed.
Once her friends had come over, they noticed the box of samples sitting on the counter. This situation led to all of them trying the sample, and through that, they ate them all.
The Worst Excuse
OP went from shocked to angry at hearing what had happened, especially when Maya pleaded her defense, saying it was just cake. OP told her that if it were “just cake,” she would have no problem replacing the samples.
Not Gonna Happen
Maya said she wouldn’t pay for something too expensive and “tasted like s***.” Leo backed up OP and said she had to replace it. They argued until OP said that if she couldn’t pay, she would have to leave and stay with her mother.
You’re Not Serious
Maya thought that both OP and Leo weren’t being serious. That changed when Leo repeated what OP had said, and Maya went to pack her things “in a huff.”
OP handed Maya gas money after she had packed and told her to “get the h*** out.” Maya left and went to her mother’s house, who called OP shortly afterward.
A Pattern Emerges
Leo’s mother scolded OP for turning Maya out “in her time of need,” but OP thought more was going on. As it turned out, OP’s future mother-in-law was also irritated because Maya had shown up at her house and then drank her father’s expensive whiskey without asking.
Redditors Chime In
The Redditors who commented were all on OP’s side, and they noted that Maya had some deeper issues going on.
The top comment that resonated with most readers said, “Not the a**hole. You did the right thing, and I’m glad your fiancé backed you up. Maya’s parents are learning that they have raised someone who has no problem stealing, eating, or drinking other people’s stuff without asking. It’s their job to deal with her.”
Another of the most popular comments was along the same line, saying, “Not the a**hole, and I’m glad your future mother-in-law is now finding out why her precious baby keeps getting kicked out by everyone.”
Not Your Problem
Most Redditors felt like the issues Maya had weren’t OP’s problem, nor should she and her fiancé have to deal with them.
One said, “Not the a**hole, but Maya is a d*** hot mess. She’s got some horrible boundary issues: eating your cake samples and drinking your future father-in-law’s expensive liquor. It’s like she wants everyone to hate her.”
Do you think that OP was correct to kick her out? Why is Maya being self-destructive, and should anyone care?
