🎉 Meet the Party Planner Extraordinaire! 🎂 For the past 15 years, she's been the go-to gal for all the family's celebrations. 🥳 But here's the twist: not once has anyone returned the favor for her birthday! 😢 This year, things took a turn for the worse when her own mother asked her to cook and plan her brother's party, thinking he was depressed (spoiler alert: he's not, he just doesn't want to quit smoking weed for a job 🌿). When her birthday rolled around, crickets. 🦗 No happy birthday, just her mom hanging out with her brother and SIL. 😞 Her hubby came through with a gift, but she's left wondering: is it too much to ask for one day to be about her? 🤔

🎉 The Party Planner's Rebellion: No More Special Days for Ungrateful Fam! 😤

The party planner extraordinaire has had enough! 😤 Her brother demanded she throw a party for his wife's birthday, but she put her foot down and said no. 🙅‍♀️ Cue the temper tantrum from bro, accusing her of being mean and ruining SIL's special day out of spite. 😡 But it's more than that – she's tired of being forgotten until they need something, and then being labeled as a selfish b*tch when she stands up for herself. 😢 It's seriously depressing her. 💔 So, is she the a-hole for putting an end to the special day train? 🚂 Let's see what the internet has to say about this family drama! 🍿

Taking a stand! 🙌 No more party planning for them.
