Beware the Entitled Bride who is also a Meddling Grandma.
A grandma went and bleached her granddaughter's hair against the wishes of her own daughter, the new blonde's mother. The dye job was so upsetting that the mother in the middle is now vowing to boycott the wedding.
The mother posted the story on "Am I The A**hole?" and asked whether skipping the wedding is a proper punishment. She wrote:
My mom is getting married at the end of July. My daughter (who is 11) was going to be her flower girl. (I know she’s a bit old for the role but she’s the youngest granddaughter).
Over the holiday (July 4th, we’re in the USA) my husband and I both were on call so my daughter stayed with my brother and his wife, who went over to my mom and her fiancé’s house. While they were there my mom BLEACHED my daughters hair which out even asking me. We dye her hair semi regularly with Arctic Fox, which is safe for kids. About a week ago we dyed it a very pretty blue.
My mom detests unnatural hair colors and has been hounding me to “fix it” for the wedding. My daughter was fine with being a brunette for a little while when I asked. I was going to let her blue fade out naturally then put a dark brown over it a bit before the wedding. I guess that wasn’t soon enough for my mother.
