This story hit Twitter, Reddit, Facebook and then the news outlets late last week. I screenshot the Facebook posts but it’s probably easier to simply direct everyone to read one of the news media stories. So trot on over to this URL:
And then come back here to discuss….
Is this a real story? We’ve read of some pretty horrific bridezillas on Ehell over the years. It falls in the realm of being plausible given that extreme entitlement is not a new phenomenon.
The question I have pertains to the groom. He clearly knew of this scheme. There’s a lot of “we wanted…we toured…we dreamed…we asked” written in that Facebook status and culminate with the groom’s family pledging $3K for the wedding. And yet in the comment sections on sites where this appears, many people write that the groom “dodged a bullet”, as if the guy was an unwitting victim only just now realizing what a bridezilla he nearly married. Say what? He’s just as guilty as she is of trying to milk friends and family of a LOT of cash to fund an overly extravagant wedding.
In a turn of events, someone claiming to be Susan’s cousin said the Facebook status was only up for 15 minutes before it was deleted.
‘Clearly she has entitlement issues, but I have never known her to be this obnoxious. Honestly, over the years she’s been nice and overall sweet. No red flags come to mind,’ the cousin said.
‘On a final note, I understand everyone’s valid concern about her leaving her son for two months to go backpacking. However nobody believes she’s actually going to South America. This woman has never been outside the US.
‘We all think she’s saying that to be dramatic. I also have a feeling she may have been drinking while writing this status, it’s especially vulgar and incredibly embarrassing. It was only up for maybe 15 minutes before she took it down.’
