Social Media Users Back Woman Who Dumped Boyfriend After His Mom Refused To Fly Her First Class

A worried woman has taken to Reddit to ask whether she was wrong to break up with her boyfriend after his mother invited her on a family vacation - then bought her a coach ticket while the rest of the family were given first class.

She posted her story on the social media platform's popular 'Am I The A**hole' forum, explaining her her boyfriend's mom Becky had tried to humiliate her in front of the entire family.

According to the post, Becky had often made "snide remarks" about the woman's parents for working "blue-collar jobs". She was also snarky about the woman's job in nursing.

The final nail in the coffin came when Becky invited her on a family vacation. When the woman arrived at the airport, she was shocked and embarrassed to discover that Becky had booked her a coach ticket but gifted the other seven people going with first-class airfares.

"We get to the airport and Becky got 7 other people first class tickets and me 1 coach ticket," the nurse wrote, adding: "She told me I was used to it and she had a free coach ticket so I should be grateful for going."

Not only was she sitting in a different part of the plane, but the woman had to wait in a long line to board while the rest of the family sailed straight through to their first-class seats.

"I had to keep from crying the whole time in line. I got up to the counter and there was a baggage fee to me," she wrote. "My boyfriend at the time never once helped me through the coach line or said anything to his mom. I looked over at his mom’s smug face as I was about to pay the checked baggage fee. And I let all of my frustrations out on the attendant and started crying."

Luckily, the flight attendant was very sweet and advised her not to go on vacation with a family that treated her so badly. The nurse took her advice - but her boyfriend wasn't happy about it.

"My boyfriend has been blowing up my phone saying how could I do that to his mother and just back out of a vacation very last minute and wasted everyone’s time and money," she wrote, explaining that she had since dumped him.

Other Redditors were quick to jump to her defense, reassuring her that she had been put in a horrible position and done absolutely nothing wrong.

It was absolutely the right decision to stand up for yourself," one wrote, adding: "They are going to say that you should be happy for any kind of vacation and not look down on a coach ticket, but his mother was being pointedly rude to you."

"Don’t forget the boyfriend, who could have gone with her in the ‘coach’ line, but chose to do the express line anyway, leaving her all alone," another chimed in.
