People sure do like to stick their nose into other people’s business.
I could never understand what they get out of it other than unnecessary gossip. And even then what is the point of it? I suppose only judgy people would enjoy whispering about someone behind their back and trying to learn everything they can about them. Or perhaps ones who don’t have anything to do in their own life so they choose to barge into other people’s lives.
Whatever the reason may be, the only way to get them off your back is to give them what they want with a twist of course. And that is exactly what this girl did. Her aunt just couldn’t get the hint that she didn’t want to talk about her boyfriends or her past relationships so she decided to divulge a little more than what her aunt was comfortable with.
And as you can imagine, it was just as glorious as all of us had hoped.
Her aunt really has no business asking about her private life in the first place.
I have no love for people who compare others to their children.
What was she hoping to get out of this interaction?
Well, she got more than what she was hoping for in that seething comment.
If she thinks it is inappropriate, why bring it up in the first place?
Parents should really learn that no one is perfect and that includes their children.
NTA – Might I suggest the following?
“Dear aunt, I am sorry you were offended that I responded to your constant uncalled for, intrusive, and let’s be honest – crude comments with a response in kind.
I’m sorry you are upset and let me suggest if you don’t like responses like that, that in the future you avoid commenting on my personal life. But if you want to continue to make such comments I will take it as you wish me to keep making comments as I did.” –HunterRoze
She got what she deserved.
It might be punishment enough to have a mother like that in the first place.
The daughter had nothing to do with this in the first place.
You’re an adult in your mid-twenties and she has no business dragging your father into the matter. Nor making this a topic of conversation at all.
BTW if she ever brings up a subject like this again, tell her you won’t be watching her next child if she has a surprise perimenopausal pregnancy.
NTA and well played. –doublestitch
I imagine, she will continue to bother you with her unnecessary questions.
Mariah Carey is very wise indeed.
