Her Pregnant Friend Didn’t Invite Her to the Baby Shower, Then Demanded She Organize Another One, but When the Entitled Behavior Became Too Much, She Canceled It

A woman recently went online to ask if she’d been wrong to angrily abandon organizing her demanding friend’s baby shower. Here’s her story.

Her friend was expecting

“A group of us were planning my 30-year-old friend’s baby shower,” the woman began.

She had no place of her own

“For some background, my friend lives in a gigantic house where she always throws parties; I live with my parents in a small apartment.”

Her friend had demanded

The woman explained that her pregnant friend had basically told her to organize a baby shower.

The woman resented being told rather than asked, or even being given the chance to offer, but she went along with it anyway.

To make things worse, the woman’s friend had already held a baby shower, and the woman hadn’t been invited.

The reason given was that the woman was single and child-free, and this particular shower had only been for mothers.

The woman felt pressured

The woman felt like she was being forced to host a second baby shower for a friend who’d not invited her to the first.

She still offered to pay

Even so, the woman had still offered to pay for everything—food, cake, decorations, etc. However, she told her friend that she couldn’t afford to hire a restaurant, so the only other option was to host it at her friend’s house.

Her friend agreed

Her friend, who couldn’t have traveled far anyway because of pregnancy complications, agreed they could hold it at her house.

The plan was that the woman would get the party ready downstairs while her pregnant friend waited upstairs. She planned to have finger food and use disposable plates to make life easier and avoid a lot of cleaning up afterward.

The husband got involved

One week before the shower, the woman was shocked to receive an angry text from her friend’s husband.

The text accused the woman of stressing her friend out because of the crockery, cutlery, and cleaning up involved. Confused and angry, the woman snapped back that if hosting the shower was such a problem, then they could just forget the whole thing.

The woman’s husband replied that she should hold the baby shower at her place, knowing full well that she didn’t have one.

She told them where to get off

The woman stuck to her guns and said she’d had enough of being given the runaround; she wasn’t having anything more to do with this baby shower.

Was she wrong?

The pregnant woman’s other friends had gotten together and thrown a last-minute baby shower at one of their houses, but the woman had stayed away. She asked the internet if she’d overreacted.

The internet responded

The internet overwhelmingly backed the woman. “She and her husband sound massively entitled,” said one. “I’d say good riddance.”

“Wanting a second shower? Expecting you to host and pay for the whole thing? After not even inviting you to the first one?” said another. “Your friend is narcissistic, but you weren’t forced to do anything. Don’t be a doormat; practice saying ‘no’ more often and earlier.”
