A young woman, took to Reddit’s “Petty Revenge” subthread, recalling the time she got revenge on her step-sister for trying to wear a wedding dress to her engagement party.
Maria and her step-sister, Harriet, have always been at odds with each other.
They were born just 20 days apart, and their fathers’ infidelity created a rift between their mothers and a lifelong feud between the sisters.
A Complicated Relationship
Their relationship has always been complicated. Harriet has always sought to get one-up on Maria, even though they come from a similar economic backgrounds.
The tension between their mothers has only added to the drama between the sisters.
Maria is getting married and is throwing an engagement party for all the guests, including Harriet and her mother.
Getting engaged created additional tension between the sisters because of Harriet’s insatiable need a to upstage Maria.
Reaching Boiling Point
Their relationship reached a boiling point when Maria’s engagement party was approaching.
Maria had planned a casual-formal event, but when she found out about Harriet’s plans to wear a stunning, opulent white dress, she was determined not to let her half-sister upstage her once again.
A Cunning Plan
In a bold move, Maria transformed the event into a costume party, inviting guests to dress in their wildest attire.
She relayed the message to her father via text and asked him to let Harriet and her mother know of the last-minute changes. Maria knew the likelihood of him remembering to tell them was slim, which was all part of her plan for revenge.
The Costume Party
The guests arrived dressed in colorful costumes, festive hats, and wigs, adding to the lively atmosphere.
Harriet was nowhere to be seen until suddenly she made a grand entrance, dressed in her magnificent white gown.
The Moment of Realization
As soon Harriet realized she was the only one not in costume, she got immediately upset. She immediately broke down in tears, unable to handle the embarrassment.
The Tipping Point
Harriet was humiliated. It reached the tipping point when Maria’s fiancé walked up to Harriet and said, “her bride dress looked amazing for a cheap costume.”
A Dressing Down From the Parents
Maria’s father and Harriet’s mother scolded her for being childish, reminding her that she could have communicated the change of plans herself instead of relying on her father to relay the message.
An Unforgettable Event
Despite the drama at the engagement party, Maria and her fiancé celebrated their love surrounded by friends and family.
But the memory of Harriet’s embarrassment will long be remembered, as the sisters’ long-standing feud reached new heights at the unforgettable engagement party.
Cutting Family Ties
In the end, Maria ended up cutting off Harriet, her father, and Harriet’s mom over the incident, which she doesn’t regret.
PaulFromAtlanta was impressed by Maria’s fiance’s remark to Harriet during the engagement party. He explained, “So he’s a keeper. Excellent petty revenge.”
Another Redditor said, “And you aren’t being childish. You asked your dad to do something that shouldn’t have been difficult to do unless he has a brain injury. He’s the childish one for blaming you for his inability to relay a simple message. And for not babying the half sister.”
One user warned, “For the love of all you hold sacred, DO NOT LET THIS GIRL ATTEND YOUR WEDDING.”
