After claiming to have suffered at the hands of abusive parents most of her life, bride-to-be Alyssa Pearce decided to enact a little revenge due to being endlessly harassed by her parentsâ€™ persistence to be invited to her wedding.
In a post on Reddit, the 23-year-old explained that for years she suffered â€œphysical, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of two people who were supposed to love and cherish me,â€ and after becoming engaged, she was â€œbulliedâ€ asÂ they insisted that they get an invite to the wedding.
â€œSo my narcissistic parents abused me for 16 years before I ran away from home,â€ Pearce wrote in her post. â€œNow theyâ€™re trying to bully their way (via family, they havenâ€™t bothered to speak to me personally) into getting an invitation to my wedding. There was really only one way to respond.â€
So, Pearce came up with a unique idea. Instead of fighting with her parents, she decided she would go ahead and send them an invitation.Â But the invitation would be quite different from the ones the rest of the guests received in the mail, as the one for her parents read:
â€œTogether with our friends and family, Alex and Alyssa would like to invite you to suck it and bask in our happiness, your bitterness, and our mutual irritation at each otherâ€™s existence, as we completely ignore yours and celebrate our marriage without you. There will a lovely ceremony, followed by cake, food and general merriment. And youâ€™re not invited to any of it. Because f*** you thatâ€™s why.â€
Pearce went on to explain she finally â€œsnappedâ€ and decided to type up the specialized invitation.
â€œSo I went home and wrote my parents the de-invitation. I opened up a word document, found the nicest calligraphy font I could, loaded up the printer with some of the lovely parchment paper left over from the other invitations, and wrote,â€ Pearce explained in her post.
â€œI then found a nice matching envelope, addressed it with a fancy gold pen, and posted it. I mean, if youâ€™re going to send someone a memorable â€˜stuff you,â€™ youâ€™ve really got to put in some effort. You may as well go all-out.â€
If this woman was in fact abused, what a perfect way to get back at the monsters who mistreated her most of her life. Hopefully this woman can go on to have a great life with her new husband and put her painful past behind her forever.
