You are in no way I’m the wrong. She’s acting like a pathetic child and given her recent behaviour I hop she doesn’t come to the wedding as she will just be a rude cow.

I would carry on as though nothing was happening and leave it in her corner to say she has an issue. If her boyfriend has some bad reviews, his business could be feeling the effects and they might be under some financial stress. Not saying you should have gotten the ring from him (I think you were right not to) but I wonder if they were thinking that could have been a guaranteed sale.

If she is mad about the ring she looks really foolish right now. I’d be wondering what gave her the impression that acting like a snot was an effective sales practice.

Is she twelve years old? You didn’t do anything wrong and she’s behaving like a brat.

I wouldn’t even bother to further think about this. She is throwing a childish fit over nothing. Wouldn’t be worth my time and energy to get involved into. Let her behave the way she wants to and ignore it. You did absolutely nothing wrong.

Are you sure the ring thing is really the issue here?  Have you tried calling her and having a calm, adult discussion?

are you close with her?  do you care that she blocked you?  are you missing anything by not seeing her profile?

i don’t see this as a big deal if she is being childish about this incident.

My husband’s aunt unfriended him on Facebook when he and his parents declined to attend her daughter’s wedding across the country, in a location several hours from any airport.

He wasn’t at all close to the aunt anyway, and we decided we had no reason to push a relationship with someone who wanted to flounce away like a high school drama queen. He hasn’t had any contact with her since, and I’ve never even met her. Life goes on.

How immature. Like seriously… I would not respond to that behavior or any other similar actions. Eventually she will feel embarrassed when she sees shes not getting a rise out of you guys. Unless she is forever this catty.

I had a close family member of my husband do this to me a few years ago, for an equally stupid reason (which actually turned out to be a misunderstanding).  We were in our late 20s at the time, and it seemed ridiculous.  I basically ignored it, even though I was getting the silent treatment/blocked on social media for something I didnt even do.  It went away after about 2 years. (!!!)  Don’t know really what to tell you, but don’t stoop to her level, and don’t let her weird issues ruin your joyful moments.

My husband and I are jewelers. We own our own business. In no way were you at fault. His yelp reviews are though. His bitch aunt should know that. Also we have one rule, no business with family. It’s just not professional. Good luck.
