Self serving

By PartTimePrincess - 10/09/2013 14:56 - United States

Today, my sister, who knows I'm severely afraid of heights, got me tickets to skydive for my birthday. When I reminded her of my fear, she stated that she forgot and should just keep them for herself and her boyfriend. My mom agreed. FML

For her birthday you should buy yourself tickets to Disneyland.

Say you're going to conquer your fear of heights, take tickets, sell tickets, acquire birthday money.

Thats too bad OP. Maybe get revenge by showing HER biggest fear?

I don't like how selfish OP is being. She doesn't want her sister to go on the trip.

#19 - re-read this FML very slowly and try again.

I do sort of agree with 19 that op is being a little selfish. sisters do sometimes forget, she didn't HAVE to get you a gift, rather let her use it than have it go to waste

Several options. 1) Accept the tickets and not go - this way your sister doesn't benefit on your birthday, intentional or not. 2) Accept and gift to your friends. This way the tickets are being used in a fashion you want them to be used. 3) Let your sister use them, even though she may or may not have forgotten your phobia.

I think its pretty obvious OPs sister only got the tickets so she could take advantage of OPs fear and keep them. She could very easily return of exchange them. Cant be that hard.

@55, how is OP being selfish? Her sister obviously bought the tickets for herself and opted to try to appear as a thoughtful sister who "forgot." If it truly was an accident, she could have just said she would return them or something along those lines.

hopefully her sister has a fear of mice

If she's afraid of swans you can take her to the park

Seems like that was her plan from the start

Is anybody else thinking of that Simpsons episode where Homer gave Marge a bowling ball with his own name engraved on it for her birthday? Life in the Fast Lane.

Atleast she remembered even if yu can't use it

That was the point... so SHE could get the tickets, not OP.

Go along and "forget" to give her a parachute.

Your picture.. I can't even focus.

Wow how nice of her to conveniently buy herself a present on your B day

Shoot I wish my sister spent money on me like that for my birthday. Sorry it was of no use to you op.

OP's sister didn't spend money on her, she knew that OP wouldn't be able to use it that's why she got it. It's a little too convenient that she "forgot" that her sister was afraid of heights (honestly what sibling forgets another's fear?) and readily had the suggestion of sky diving with her boyfriend on hand as soon as OP reminded her about her fear.

PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO FORGET STUFF. so she had a plan b, so what!??

We found OP's sister ^

57 you're a completely idiot if you believe that for a second. Anyone with a brain can see she didn't forget.

Haha how "strangely" convenient for her... -_-

You could always keep them and give them to someone else instead or even sell them. That was really rude of your sister.
