Same here... In our family, and at every Birthday party i've been to the birthday boy/girl cuts the cake (sometimes with parental help) and then passes it round, except me because nobody really trusts me with knives. Severed fingers tend to ruin Birthday cake. But either way, cake is cake, it's gonna taste the same no matter when it was cut so it seems awfully petty to even care who gets the first slice, let alone seek retribution because it wasn't you.
the first piece isn't that big a deal honestly, but then again in my family it usually goes like this: everybody else gets some (equaling about half a cake) and the rest is the solely the birthday person's to enjoy for a couple days and only shares if they want to.
Either your girlfriend is very gullible, or your sister should consider becoming a lawyer if she's not already.
It's easy to break people up. It's all about planting that seed of doubt. And having answers for questions that are plausible on their own. Slip'em the hook with the little lie, and you'd be amazed what kind of whoppers people will swallow. "He said he was at the mall, but I swear I heard a car horn. He must have lied." That kinda circumstancial shit adds up. When in actual fact he was probably walking through the mall parking lot to get into the mall. Or walking past one of those coin-op car rides.
Cheating is also a pretty easy thing to convince people of, as it becomes extremely "he said, she said." OP's sister only needs to say that she saw OP cheating at some time when OP had actually been hanging out alone. Naturally OP will deny it, but what cheater doesn't deny cheating? Unless OP is constantly surrounded by people who can vouch for him, he's got no real proof he didn't cheat. And if the gf asked why OP's sister made it all up, the reason "I ate the first piece of her cake." sounds like a pretty lame excuse.
Tbh, I probably would have done the same thing. YDI for taking the first slice of someone else's BIRTHDAY cake
"Today, my brother ate the first slice of MY birthday cake. FML........ But don't worry. I'm already plotting revenge. "
