The evolution of the modern family has expanded beyond human beings you share genetics with — family is now, more than ever, widely accepted to include people you’ve chosen to be a part of your close-knit circle, as well as furry friends who are less like pets and more like children. A nuclear family is great, but so is a chosen family, or a blend of the two — unless you’re this Redditor’s unsatisfied sister.

Taking to the forum’s “Am I The A—hole” subreddit, a man explained the holiday hosting arrangement between himself and his wife, pain pills from canada his parents, and his sister. Since he and his wife hosted Christmas for his family, his sister — who “is vocally child-free,” but does have a dog — was hosting for New Year’s Eve. The man wrote, “I love my sister, but we are very much opposites. When I had my kid it changed our relationship a bit. She tolerates (her words) my son. She has never watched him, I’ve also never asked. My son is present at all family functions, this annoys my sister.”

Explaining their sibling dynamic further, he continued, “My sister has turned into your classic dog mom. World revolves around the dog type. I do not own dogs, and really don’t want to be around them. I don’t want them in my house.” He shared that his sister wanted to bring her dog to his place for Christmas, and although the pet is “well-trained and overall okay for a dog,” he didn’t want her to bring the pup along for the day. “She complied and left it alone but was not happy about and let me know that several times,” the man explained.

The dad continued, “The day before New Year’s Eve, she told me kids weren’t welcome at her house. I was taken back by this and asked why. She just said alcohol would be present (we all drink and family friends also come to this party), and just said it wouldn’t be appropriate for a 2-year-old to be present.”

Because of his sister’s wishes, the man explains that he and his wife decided to stay home with their child. “Wife and I treated it like any other night,” he explained, continuing, “We didn’t even stay up till midnight. By Eleven, I noticed missed calls from [my sister], and didn’t answer. Fell asleep while texts started coming in. Calling me an a—hole. Calling me a dog hater. Saying it was rude I didn’t come to the party. Said it was bullsh*t that she got my kid a Christmas present but [I] didn’t get her dog anything.” In need of outside opinions on the situation, OP asks the all-important question: “AITA?”

One Redditor summed up the laughable situation quickly and concisely: “I know this must have been super unpleasant to deal with, but it cracked me up. Your sister sounds … difficult. NTA.” Another user agreed, writing, “Difficult, entitled, arduous is the sister and it’s all sad yet oddly funny in a warped Reddit way. OP NTA.”
