“I Waited 5+ Hours In The Ticketmaster Queue”: Teen Is Accused Of Ruining Wedding After She Refused To Give Her Ticket To Taylor Swift’s Concert To The Bride

It’s all fun and games until someone overhears that you’ll be going to Taylor Swift’s next concert. Suddenly, you’re in the spotlight and some people start plotting how to convince you to part with your hard-won ticket. And if they don’t get their way… well, hang on to your hats, dear Pandas, because you’re about to find out.

A teenage redditor shared how her cousin’s wedding took a very dramatic turn after he overheard that she had a Taylor Swift ticket. He decided that she should give it to his bride as a present, and resorted to some underhanded social pressure to get his own way. However, the OP resisted. Things soon got out of hand, and the redditor turned to the AITA online community to gauge whether or not she was wrong to refuse to part with the ticket to her beloved performer’s next concert.

You’ll find the full story below. After you’ve read it and seen how the internet reacted, be sure to share your own opinions in the comments, Pandas. Bored Panda has reached out to the author of the post via Reddit, and we’ll update the article as soon as we hear back from her.

Taylor Swift is a beloved performer and getting tickets to her concerts can be a real headache sometimes

A teenager shared how her cousin tried to pressure her into giving up her ticket while they were both at his wedding. Here’s how things went down

It’s pretty darn despicable how the OP’s cousin behaved at the wedding. First of all, he loudly proclaimed to everyone that the redditor would be giving up her ticket to his wife. Then, he screamed at the OP, demanded that she leave, and even accused her of ruining the wedding.

That’s no way for any groom—or, frankly, any person—to behave with a younger relative. Just because you can’t get what they have doesn’t mean that you’re free to throw a fit! It’s not a gift if you’re forcing someone’s hand, now, is it?

Presents are something that you give willingly. You might want to make someone’s day a bit brighter. Perhaps you want to curry some favor with a particular person. Whatever your specific reason, you’re the one who initiates the whole gift-giving process. However, when someone demands that you give up something valuable, it’s just a form of bullying.

In an update, the redditor shared how her parents got involved in the situation further. She showed them some of the messages she’d received from her cousin’s side of the family, and they had to put their foot down. They demanded an apology.

Unfortunately, the reality is that some folks believe that they’re far more special than anyone else and that the world owes them. We call them entitled people. And they’re far less common than anyone would prefer.

Everyone would like to be treated with respect. So when someone else continuously goes on about how others are beneath them, it’s no wonder when relationships and friendships start straining at the seams.

It becomes a problem when someone’s sense of entitlement infringes on other people’s lives. It helps if parents teach their kids about the importance of generosity and humility from an early age. But it’s perfectly possible for adults to rein in their impulsiveness and anger, too!

However, it takes quite a bit of effort: you have to slow down, analyze your behavior, try to figure out why you’re doing what you’re doing, and get to grips with why you lashed out at a teenage relative. Usually, the issue is something far deeper than concert tickets, no matter how great they might be. It might be an issue with control or perfectionism, or even an inability to deal with stress in a mature way.

The internet was incredibly supportive of the teen, and called out her cousin and his bride. Here’s what some people had to say

I may try this next time I see a nice car, saying out loud "the owner decided to give me their car as a good day gift". 😋

I'd have walked up on stage when he announced that, ripped the microphone from his hands and told him what a measly little liar he is and that his wife should rather use this as a divorce party than a marriage because he's a deadbeat and doesn't deserve a wife. If he already ruins my reputation I'll take him down flaming.

Came here to say this. I totally would have walked up and taken the mic and cleared everything up right then... And I would have been tempted to take a big old fistful of cake and walk right out the door.
