Retort with "Knowing you, I'm surprised uncle didn't die sooner." If you went out of your way to say something positive and she shat on it, you might as well throw it back at her. Just don't resort to thumping your chests and walking around on all fours.

I agree that OP could easily be the bitch I this situation, and could have twisted the story to her favour, but honestly the same could be said for 95% of the FMLs on this site. We need to stop playing devil's advocate and just take the FML at face value, dammit.

jsfromga: Um, no. Taking the FML at face value, which means making a comment based off of what you read and know as a fact based on the goddamned FML, would be that OP complimented the great aunt, the aunt made a bitch comment, and the mom agreed. What you are doing is reading into why the aunt said what she did, and saying, "Well, maybe OP IS a bitch", which is going against the initial reaction to the FML, thereby playing devil's advocate.

Even if OP is a mean awful person, doesn't mean she can't have a marriage like her aunt's. I know plenty of awful people who are happily married, even though nobody around them knows how someone would ever want to marry them.

She has no marriage anymore, death hath done them part. Seriously though, just because the aunt made a very rude comment doesn't mean she's a bitch. Maybe she's old and senile and doesn't know what she's saying is hurtful. I mean, it's doubtful, but it's possible. I would agree that the comment was uncalled for though.
