A little background
OP cut back on the gifts she promised her sister due to financial woes. Unfortunately, this got her sister pretty upset
Sadly, OP and her sister haven’t spoken ever since
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
“NTA, sister is an ungrateful brat and your parents should have punished her for acting like a brat.”
“NTA. She needs to understand things happen.”
“NTA…she knows that you've been having trouble financially and she get's mad that you didn't get a makeup thingy or whatever?”
“NTA. You should 'make it up to her'? That's laughably entitled, not just on your sister's part, but on your mother's.”
According to this Redditor, OP should have informed her sister about her financial situation ahead of time, rather than surprising the girl with something she doesn’t want
“She sounds like a spoiled brat, and it's awful that your parents are taking her side.“
“NAH. Sister is just a kid. She was promised something and let down by surprise.“
“NTA. She sounds materialistic and petty.”
Redditors were stunned by the sister's level of ingratitude. They questioned the mother's role in enabling her.
OP experienced a challenging situation beyond her control, fixing that took precedence over anyone’s Christmas presents.
The general consensus was that OP had absolutely nothing to “make up” for. It was time for the sister to grasp life's harsh realities. Promises get broken sometimes.
