Today, my girlfriend decided to treat me out to dinner and cake for my birthday. My mom felt left out and yelled at my girlfriend in an angry tirade. My girlfriend went home. I'm spending my birthday, alone in my room. FML

Sorry op but your moms a bitch

A couple solutions:
1. Find a way to your girlfriend's house.
2. Invite your mom along.
3. Talk to your mom about how irrational she's being and hopefully find a way to peacefully continue your plans.

Good luck, and happy birthday, OP!

Because moms love getting told they are being irrational. I'm sure aster there talk OPs mom will suddenly come to her senses and thank OP for pointing it out.

I disagree with number 2. Why would you want to invite your mom after she yelled at your girlfriend like that. Also, like with children, you shouldn't reward that type of behavior. I'd just call the girlfriend and plan to meet up at another time or day.

Maybe his mom wouldn't let him. Or maybe he would feel bad about taking sides. It's hard to pick between your mother and your girlfriend, regardless of who's being irrational. It would be better for him to stick up for his girlfriend because his mother is in the wrong, but you don't know what his mom might've said to him, so I feel like it's unfair to label him as an enabler.

I think you would need to hear more from the OP to truly determine wether he's an enabler or not. The limited amount of characters on an FML can make it difficult to fully describe everything that happened.

The point is, OP let his girlfriend leave without him, and now OP isn't doing anything because his mum got jealous but won't take him out. You don't need much more proof that that.

Judging by the fact that he said he's spending his birthday in his room, it makes him sound like he's under 17, in which case I don't think he was allowed to leave the house. He may be spending his birthday in his room because he wanted to be alone after all that and not near his mom, but I also wondered if it was because he got grounded as well. Either way it sounds like he is too young to have been able to leave or to successfully stand up to his mom. Either way FYL op.

Seems like your mom was upset because she feels like your gf is keeping you away from her. She's probably used to spending your birthday with her. Sorry Op hope you can get it sorted out and go with both of them!

But if thats the case, why is he alone in his room. If his mum was jealous and sad he wasn't spending time with her on his birthday, then she would be spending time with him instead of leaving him in his room alone.

Well maybe your mom wouldn't have felt left out if she did something like that for you as well. Upset or not, that's no way to act. Tell her later how she disappointed you!
