Best Friend Ruined Gender Reveal For Mum-To-Be After Being Hounded Daily

Best Friend Ruined Gender Reveal For Mum-To-Be After Being Hounded Daily

A woman is asking if she was in the wrong for finally snapping and telling her best friend the gender of her baby. She had been given the envelope with the sex of the unborn child inside so she could organise the gender reveal party for her. But the mum-to-be desperately wanted to know and would call or text her best friend every day.

The woman, who goes by u/Alittlespice took to Reddit to ask the question “Am I the a**hole?”. She recounted the story of how her pregnant best friend had trusted her with the envelope that had her baby’s sex written inside. 

“At her 20 week ultrasound she got the ultrasound technician to write the gender on a piece of paper, put it in an envelope and gave it to me,” she wrote.

“She wanted me to order those smoke cannons for her, her husband and their kids to pop at a photograph session to reveal what their new baby is going to be.”

“I felt honoured that she trusted me with such a secret,” she said. “When she handed me the envelope she made me swear that under no circumstances I would tell her what it is no matter how much she begged – I agreed.”

She then goes on to say how much her friend started annoying her in order to find out the sex.

“For the past 2 weeks my friend has HOUNDED me with texts begging me to just tell her what it is, but then following up with ‘actually no I don’t want to know’,” she said.

“The texts were annoying but I just ignored it and understood she was just excited.”

Things took a nasty turn however when the calls started to impact her work.

“I work an office job and I’m in and out of meetings all day,” she explained. “After the first day of a call into my work I asked her to please just chill out and stop calling me at work. I reminded her that she made me promise not to tell and she’d find out soon enough.”

Enough was enough for this best friend-she finally snapped.

“Here is where I may be the a**hole, I’d been having a c***** day at work with a particular client,” she says.

“I was stuck in a meeting with this client and the receptionist stuck her head in and said I had an urgent phone call, thought it may have been my kids school so I excused myself and took the call.

“It was my “friend” AGAIN. I just snapped and told her if she ‘wanted to know so badly it’s a boy’ and then I hung up the phone.”

“My husband thinks I’m in the right because there is only so much one person can take,” she said. “But our mutual friends are calling me the AH (a**hole) because I should have just kept my mouth shut.”

Commenters on Reddit however disagreed and said she was absolutely NOT the A-hole and that her friend had this coming.

“NTA – Texting you is one thing, calling you up at work is a completely different thing,” one person said.

“Nta, she called your work phone and interrupted the receptionist and a business meeting!” another added. “That is where she crossed the line fully – not that she hadn’t already with the many calls, you needed to put an end to it, and you did.

“If she didn’t want to know, she shouldn’t have asked! NTA at all – You asked her to not call you at work about this and she escalated it to an “urgent” phone call – she got what she deserved.”
