I've said it before and I'll say it again: getting married doesn't give anyone permission to be a monster. And yet, time and again we hear stories of brides (and quite a few grooms) using their wedding day as an excuse to treat their loved ones like prey.
One of the worst "bridezilla" stories I've ever read comes from a 23-year-old woman who shared her story on Reddit's "Am I The A**hole?" forum. Her question was: "Am I the a**hole for pulling out of my 'best friend's' wedding?"
Spoiler: she's not the a**hole in this story. And this woman is not her "best friend" anymore.
The woman writes:
I’m a 23 year old female with a progressive disability. Like MS but slower. Bride is 23 year old female too.
We’ve been friends for 7 years. When she got engaged, she asked another woman who’s she works with for less than a year to be maid of honour. I was hurt but I brushed it off. Then when it came to asking me to be a bridesmaid, she commented that I had to wear heels and walk down the aisle and stand for pictures unaided. I was hurt because she knew about my condition and my needs and completely overlooked them. We argued but made up.
