I have a cousin who I’ve never really been close too for good reason.

I’m 12 years old while she is 14. I’m out shopping with her and my auntie (her mum).

Cousin: oh, these jeans (points to $200 jeans). I want them.

Auntie: what? No. Sorry we can’t afford them right now. Your birthday is coming up, maybe you can get them then.

Cousin (yelling): NO! I want them now!

By now people are staring.

Auntie: I’m sorry. We just can’t afford them.

My cousin then throws herself on the ground and starts kicking and screaming, throwing a tantrum like a 2 year old until my auntie gives in and buys them for her. From then on I refuse to go shopping with them.

Fast forward 20 years and I have moved inter state for work. Along with my boyfriend I’m visiting my parents for their 40th wedding anniversary which is a family BBQ. My cousin, auntie and uncle are there. After dinner my boyfriend gets down on one knee and purposes to me before I can even respond:


Everyone turns to look at her.

Auntie: what’s wrong?

Cousin to me: you can’t get engaged.

Me: what?

Cousin: I’m the older, prettier, smarter one. I’m better then you, I should get married first.

My whole family is in shock. I’m sick of her temper tantrums and thinking she’s better then me I decide to stand up for myself.

Me: just because your a stuck up, self centered b**** doesn’t mean you get to dictate when I get engaged or married. (To my boyfriend) of course, I’ll marry you.

My cousin proceeds to through a glass bowl with punch in it through a glass door then throw herself on the ground crying and screaming that its so unfair.

My uncle had to pick her up and carry her out to their car. While we where left to deal with the clean up and the ruined an anniversary/engagement party.

My cousin ended up at the ER to get stitches for cuts due to the broken glass door. Needless to say she wasn’t invited to my wedding and I’m not surprised to say she’s still single and none of my family speak to her.
