For this week’s #WhatTheHellHappened, we caught up with Larisa, who wrote in because her boyfriend’s mother invited her to Christmas … and then took it back with a text the night before! To make matters worse, her boyfriend didn’t say anything about it. While my mom and I didn’t see eye-to-eye on how she should handle the situation with her boyfriend, we did agree family is complicated and she should talk it out regardless. Or as my mom so eloquently said: “The mom is a nutty butty, but if you love the guy, hang in there, and when you do finally get invited to Christmas morning with the family, slip some ex-lax in the mom’s cocoa.”
So, #WhatTheHellHappened? Here’s a refresher on Larisa’s original story, and an update from her below!
“This Christmas, I cannot go home because I am a nurse and have to work. When I mentioned that a few months ago, my boyfriend’s mom seemed willing to include me with their Christmas, saying of course I was welcomed there. Last night she sent me a text message saying she invited her son over early in the morning so they can have a family Christmas, and I am welcome to come over in the evening. This is our second Christmas together. My entire family including my grandma mailed him presents because we couldn’t be at my family’s house for Christmas. And now, I’m not invited to his family’s Christmas. I can’t think of anything I could have done to upset them. My boyfriend hasn’t said anything about it, and I don’t know what to do because I am very hurt right now.” – Larissa
So, #WhatTheHellHappened to her?
“Oh wow, that was a year ago! Well things didn’t work out between us. Shortly after the Christmas incident he told me that he thought we spent too much time together, so I applied for jobs back home, got a nursing job and moved home. We tried long distance but he ended up breaking up with me on my birthday. There was a lot leading up to our breakup including him not coming home the night of my going away party, and I caught him cheating. Thank you for your advice! I love your page. You guys always bring a smile to my face. 🙂 Thank you. :)” -Larisa
@KateFriedmanSiegel: Oh Larisa!! I’m so sorry to hear this. What a complete jerk!!!! Seriously, who does (any of) that!!? At the end of the day, it’s definitely for the best that you found all this out now and were able to get the hell away from this toxic mess of a man. I hope you’re doing well, and thank you so much for the kind words – so glad you’re enjoying our column and other fun! Happy New Year!
@CrazyJewishMom: And I think it’s fabulous that when you smelled trouble with this loser, you turned around, focused on your career, and took care of you. CAREER FIRST, PENIS SECOND!
