A man believes he was justified in leaving
his brother’s wedding reception early. He went
on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” to explain.
“My brother set his wedding date on
Halloween, which was also my youngest son’s
fourth birthday,” the Reddit poster wrote.
“I was asked to be a groomsman, but I was
transparent and told [them] that I would
accept, but also we probably wouldn’t stay
for the whole reception”.
“My sons still wanted to dress up, go
trick-or-treating and have their
neighborhood kid friends over for a
small Halloween birthday party after”.
“Day of the wedding, my mom pulls me aside and
asks, ‘Are you sure you want to leave the reception
early? I think sister-in-law has a cake for [son] and
she’s expecting that you guys won’t leave’”.
“If they got a cake for my son this was never
communicated with us. They just assumed this
would make us stay. So that’s what we did, we
left right after the cake cutting”.
“they’re upset about us leaving their
reception early. Apparently, I was supposed
to stay and help them clean up”.
Reddit users thought the bride and groom
could have communicated better.
“You stated your intentions and
you were basically ignored, that’s
on them,” one person wrote
