Woman asks if she was wrong to mock sister's handmade anniversary gift to husband.


People say 'it's the thought that counts' is the general adage regarding gift-giving. You should appreciate the fact that someone tried to give you something. You don't want to be the person that looks a gift horse in the mouth. Unfortunately, we are all but human, and the internet has tales of people who do exactly that.

On a popular Reddit thread in the Am I The A**hole Subreddit. A woman asks fellow Reddit users if she's a jerk for laughing at her sister's anniversary gift to her husband.

AITA for laughing at my sister's anniversary gift to her husband?

Felicidades (Congratulations) to the new couple.

My (24F) sister Zara (31F) and husband Will (35M) recently had their first wedding anniversary and invited some family over for a small anniversary dinner.

Not a fan of foreplay, OP?

Long story short, after dessert Zara said she had a gift for Will. I thought it would be some grand gesture, but then Zara gave him a painting she did of Will and his late dad.

OP will judge you based on what you give people.

Now, Zara does art as a hobby, and she's an excellent artist - and I get the sentimental value of it - but I sort of let out a laugh because it seemed like she was half-a**ing giving him a painting instead of a true gift. For example, my boyfriend and I give each other true gifts and splurge on one another, but I didn't say anything because not everyone's the same.

OP did not go to acting school.

Zara noticed, though, and asked why I laughed. I tried to play it off, but she kept insisting, so I said I thought it was funny she was half-a**ing her husband's anniversary gift. She looked hurt. Will said he loved the painting, and I was an idiot. We left after that but was I wrong for laughing? I didn't say anything, and it was Zara who kept insisting.

vip1000 thinks OP is not doing much swimming in the deep end.

YTA (You're the A**hole).

Sounds like a lovely gift, you must be very shallow to consider that 'half-a**ing'

Deucalion666 wants to know if OP thinks Santa is replacing elves with credit cards?

YTA she put more effort into her gift than you ever do. All you do is get out your credit card and you think you’re better because of it.

ppomanw0rds called the Guinness Book of World Records.

Met a lot of AH in my lifetime but you are a special case. You are next level. The fact you even came here to ask if you were the AH just shows how special you are. YTA and the biggest one ever.

OP, I think you owe your sister an apology and maybe try not to half-a** it.
