‘I cancelled my birthday party because my family cut my sister a slice of cake’


A woman has taken to Reddit to ask users if she was in the wrong for cancelling her birthday party after they cut her “golden child” sister a slice of the cake the night before. 

The post, which has gained over 2,000 comments and 17,000 likes, said: “My sister, 11, is the miracle golden child. She always gets what she wants whenever she wants.

“My parents are always trying to please her and make her happy.

“They always make a big effort on her birthday and do whatever that she asks for but they can barely remember mine and they are always conveniently ‘broke’.

“This year I wanted to enjoy my birthday so I babysat and even mowed lawns to make this possible.”

The writer said they had been planning the birthday party for weeks and invited all their friends. 

The post goes on: “I bought the food, snacks and drinks and picked up my custom made cake which I was really excited about, it was just perfect.

“The night before the party, I noticed that my cake which was in the fridge had a huge slice missing. When I asked my dad, he shrugged and nonchalantly said that my sister was crying for it and it was just a small piece, my friends wouldn’t notice.

“I yelled at him asking him why he would do something like that when it wasn’t even bought with his money and that my sister could have waited for tomorrow.”

She said her dad got angry and “went on a tirade about how I think I’m an adult because of my stupid party implying that I did everything myself and did not ask them for anything”.

The writer said she ended up calling off the party because she didn’t have the means to change the location last minute and “was so hurt,” she “didn’t want to host it at home anymore”.

The post went on: “One of my friends told me that calling it off was an overreaction and that I could have just grit my teeth and gone through with doing it at home rather than cancelling just hours before.”

The Reddit user asked the forum if she was in the wrong for cancelling the party. 

One person commented: “That is really sh***y of your dad. You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy and value your birthday celebration.

“That was YOUR cake and I would have been depressed about it too. I wouldn’t invite your parents or your sister to your birthday parties in the future.”

Another said: “Make sure to eat your sisters entire cake the night before her birthday.”

Meanwhile, a third wrote: “I wish you hadn’t canceled it so everyone could have seen what your parents did.”
