Woman slammed for reaction to anniversary gift

Wife’s reaction to sister’s handmade birthday present makes the internet furious

In a new post that is going viral, the internet has verbally abused a woman after her reaction to her sister’s homemade birthday present for her husband.

Published on reddit‘sr/AmITeA**hole forum, a woman under the anonymous username u/aitapaintinggift shared her story to get feedback from the “AITA” community. The popular post has more than 4,000 upvotes and 2,000 comments.

The Redditor started her story by explaining that: her sister, “Zara,” just celebrated her first wedding anniversary with her husband, “Will.” To celebrate, the couple invited the family for dinner.

Long story short, after dessert Zara said she… had a present for Will. I thought it would be a grand gesture, but then Zara gave him a painting of Will and his late father. Now Zara does art as a hobby and she’s a really good artist – and I understand its sentimental value – but I had to laugh a little because it seemed like she was giving him a painting rather than an actual gift,” she explained. .

She said that when she gets gifts for her boyfriend, they usually “splash” each other and then explained that “not everyone is the same.” When Zara asked why she was laughing, the OP (original poster) wouldn’t answer and tried to play it out.

“She kept pushing, so I said I thought it was funny that she saw her husband’s wedding day half down.” gift† She looked hurt, Will said he loves the painting and I was an idiot. Then we left,” she concluded.

According to siennalikestoparty.com, handmade gifts are personal, as the giver spends their time creating a gift for a person who means a lot to him or her. They also have a “feel-good vibe” like when the person looks at their gift, they are reminded who made it for them.

Reddit users reacted quickly, furious at the OP’s comment about the gift.

†[You’re the a**hole] Sounds like a nice gift, you have to be very superficial to consider that ‘half-a**ing’,” wrote u/vip00, which received the best comment with more than 10,000 upvotes.

†[You’re the a**hole] she put more effort into her gift than you ever do. All you do is grab your credit card, and you think it makes you better,” you/Deucalion666 scoffed the OP.

U/Professional_Froyo34 said: “[You’re the a**hole] I would choose a hand-painted sentimental gift over an expensive one any day. I hope this is anger bait and not some ignorant person who thinks price is better than sentimental.”

“Meet a lot” [a**holes] in my life, but you are a special case. You are the next level. The fact that you even came here to ask if it was you shows how special you are. [You’re the a**hole] and the largest ever,” argued u/poormansw0rds.

†[You’re the a**hole] so she gave him a thoughtful and appropriate gift (paper anniversary) that required personal effort on her part and you minimize it? That’s mean of you. Glad you and your friend value material goods more than each other. Looks like Zara and Will have a bright future ahead of them,” exclaimed u/Bozobozo111.
