'My sister faked her death and is now mad at me for cutting her out of my life.'


A good prank is a lot of fun. True classics like whip cream and a feather, a bucket of water over the door, or even a real person in the scarecrow on Halloween are all good fun. Sometimes people take a prank way too far to the point where it's mean.

On a popular Reddit thread in the Am I the A**hole Subreddit, a woman gets pranked by her sister so hard that she has to cut her out of her life.

She writes:

I (17f) recently fell out with my sister(23) in September. We haven’t talked in about four months due to issues involving our mother, and sides were chosen on her half that I had no intention of being okay with, so I stepped away and made no contact with them.

I went on a trip to see my long-distance boyfriend for the first time since dating for seven months. I was ecstatic and so happy to finally be with him for his birthday and have some time together. On the third day of my trip, I got a call from my sister that I had declined.

I didn’t want any drama that always came along with answering her calls, so I left it alone. I then get a call from her boyfriend, Who’s freaking out and sobbing; he tells me that my sister had gotten into a head-on crash with a truck and died. Of course, I was hysterical; I couldn’t walk because I was in so much anguish.

I frantically packed my bags and called my dad to tell him what had just happened and if he could get me a ticket. He did; my boyfriend came with me on the courtesy of my dad not wanting me to be alone. I fly out at three in the morning and get picked up by my dad. I’m still losing my mind over my sister.

It takes an hour from the airport to her house, so I call her boyfriend’s number telling him I’ll be there and I need to know what happened when I get there. I get there and run to the door with my dad in tow, my boyfriend stays in the car out of respect, and I frantically wait to be let in.

My sister answers the door with the biggest sh*t-eating grin; she says, 'So you do care about me?' My dad and I are floored. My dad immediately gets angry (in the saddest way possible) and bitter towards her and starts to huff and puff at her about this not being a joke.

She shrugs at it and says, 'I only did it, so I know you’d even care since you like to choose favorites with our parents.' I was still speechless at that point, and I gathered enough of myself to tell her that I stopped talking to mom because of years of mental and emotional abuse and manipulation. I couldn’t take being used as a middleman or the family failure scapegoat.

I told her I had just had the worst seven hours of my life and that this showed that SHE didn’t care enough about me to think how this would affect me mentally. Never in my life have I ever felt such grief, sadness, and anguish. I was a mess.

I told her I hated her. I left her house, and my dad got us to a cheap hotel to sleep at. I’m still getting texts from her and my mom for what I said was rude, and how I reacted was unnecessary for a 'little test.' I may have overreacted, but I need some outside perspective, AITA?

The internet is the expert on pranks, and they weighed in.

NTA (Not the A**hole). This is not a test. Who does this? You should go no contact. Also, I don't generally support drama on Facebook, but let your friends and family know what happened. Your mom and sister have serious mental health issues.

NTA. You both have the same father? Tell your dad to be a proper parent and discipline his child properly and tell him to shut up your mother cause this is stupid. They should pay you back for your plane ticket too.

OP added:

My parents are divorced, and my sister “disowned” herself from my dad to be with my mom. He hadn’t talked to her in 6 years up until that point.

FSF_VVG says:

NTA. No, you did NOT overreact. That isn't remotely normal nor acceptable behavior under any circumstance. Your sister is sick as far as I'm concerned.

I'm sorry, OP; you should get your sister the 'Dummies Guide to Pranks' if you ever talk to her again.
