Reddit user u/throwawayaitamil is a lesbian mom-of-two. And I know, you might be wondering, what does her sexual orientation have to do with anything? Unfortunately, it’s relevant to the story.
When she and her little ones went to a BBQ with their extended family, the kids wanted to have some M&Ms. Their mom, however, told them to wait until after dinner and enjoy the candies then, as a dessert. Sounds like a pretty simple situation, right? It was. Until the mother-in-law decided to go rogue.
The lady gave her grandchildren candies before the meal, even though her daughter-in-law explicitly said she was against it. What’s even worse, the mother-in-law refused to apologize and chose to destroy her relationship with her daughter and her family over a few M&Ms instead.
In doubt over the way she handled the conflict, u/throwawayaitamil turned to the subreddit “Am I the [Jerk]?” for help. Here’s what she wrote.
