Not all are lucky to find a partner whose family too adores and likes you. In this story a girlfriend cried at the airport for the treatment given to her by her boyfriend’s mother. Read the story and let us know what you would have done in her situation.
My boyfriend’s parents paid for them, my boyfriend’s siblings and their SO to all go on a flight to Cabo for spring break. Becky, his mom, doesn’t seem to like me for some reason she always makes snide remarks about my parents’ blue collar jobs and my field is nursing.
We got to the airport and Becky got 7 other people first class tickets and me 1 coach ticket. She told me I was used to it and she had a free coach ticket so I should be grateful for going. They all did their express check ins and left me in the long line for me to think about what the heck is going on. I had to keep from crying the whole time in line. I got up to the counter and there was a baggage fee to me.
My boyfriend at the time never once helped me through the coach line or said anything to his mom. I looked over at his mom’s smug face as I was about to pay the checked baggage fee. And I let all of my frustrations out on the attendant and started crying. Basically she said don’t go with that family sweetie they don’t appreciate you. Continued to cry and took my luggage and got out of line with the super sweet check in woman. I was so upset at how I was treated and started crying at my boyfriend in the airport about how his mother was treating me.
I broke up with him at the airport and his mother was so embarrassed. I told her what a b%^&h she was. My boyfriend has been blowing up my phone saying how could I do that to his mother and just back out of a vacation at the very last minute and wasted everyone’s time and money.
What would you do in her situation? Any advice. Here are a few comments on the story where it was originally posted:
