Pregnant woman 'sabotages' dinner reservations; gets uninvited. AITA?


Most people get occasional (or frequent) pizza cravings, but when you're pregnant, cravings are in a whole other category.

So after a family dispute, a woman came to Reddit to ask:

"AITA for ordering pizza even though we had dinner reservations?"

linaaa78 writes:

We were supposed to go out with my family for dinner but I was craving pizza all day and I was hungry so I asked my husband if he would buy me some. We ordered pizza at 5:45pm and we had dinner reservations for 8:30pm.

When the pizza arrived, everybody wanted some but my sister was upset because she wanted to go to the restaurant so she refused to eat any. Nobody wanted to go out after they had eaten the pizza because they were full, so my dad told my husband he should cancel our reservation.

My sister is blaming me for us not going to the restaurant and has accused me of making everything about myself. My parents have tried to speak to her and my dad told her I was pregnant, so I needed to eat when I was hungry, but it’s only made her more angry with me.

It’s difficult to get a reservation at the restaurant we were supposed to go too so I understand why she was initially upset we never went, as she was excited to go.

However, my husband knows the owner and has promised he would make another reservation before we went home but my sister doesn’t want me to be invited as she thinks I’ll ruin it again, which I think is an overreaction. AITA (Am I the a-hole) for ordering pizza even though we had dinner reservations?

What do you think? Did OP have good intentions, or was she being selfish?

Reddit ruled a big ole YTA (you're the a-hole) and had some words for her.

mamasnanas says:

YTA. You could have gotten a single slice or a calzone/personal pan pizza if you were craving pizza. I'd be pissed if I were your sister, too.

DrMamaBear agrees:

YTA GAH! I’m so over this. You do not get to be completely selfish regarding food when pregnant.

CoffeeSpoons123 speaks from experience:

I've been pregnant and I find these letters a little crazy. I definitely ate a ton of salt n vinegar chips when I was pregnant (my personal common craving) but I never threw tantrums or sabotaged dinners. YTA, op.

Alarmed_Jellyfish555 suspects something:

Am I the only one also wondering if maybe this fancy dinner was some sort of celebration meant for her sister? Because that, for me, would explain a lot. I feel like OP wanted to sabotage the dinner and since the sister is the only one so upset, part of me feels like maybe there's a missing detail here that OP is deliberately leaving out. YTA.

And OP answers:

It wasn't a celebration meant for my sister.

But PotentialCan3805 disagrees:

I don’t see why everyone thinks it your fault that the other ppl ate the pizza?!

OP responds:

Because I obviously force fed them using my pregnancy superpower.

And later, she adds:

I didn't buy the pizza to ruin the plans so I don't understand why people are accusing me of doing that either. I personally could've had the pizza and then had dinner again at 8:30 without a problem so I wasn't expecting everybody to say they no longer wanted to go, especially since some people only ate a slice.

Who do you think was the A-hole here? Is there one?

Happy eating, everybody!
