A teenager thinks her father’s girlfriend mistreated her — but the girlfriend didn’t want to hear it.
She went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******? (AITA)” forum for advice. Her father gave his girlfriend $300 for an outing that included the girlfriend, her daughter and the Reddit poster. The issue arose when the girlfriend refused to use any money for the Reddit poster.

“I (17F) have been living with my dad (45M), his girlfriend of 2 years (33F), and her daughter (13F) for a couple of months now while my mom (40F) is visiting my sick grandfather in Sweden,” she wrote. “I’ve only ever stayed at my dad’s on weekends so it’s been hard getting used to living with his gf and her kid full time. The kid is super whinny and pretty spoiled because gf dotes on her so I usually just stay in my room.
“Today gf was taking her daughter on a ‘special outing’ because she passed a math test, and my dad suggested I go with them for a ‘girls day out’. I wanted to say no but I knew that he wanted me to get to know his gf and gf’s daughter better so I agreed. He gave gf $300 to spend during the outing. We spent the day going in and out of stores gf’s daughter liked in the mall complex. Gf ended up buying her a shit ton of clothes, makeup, and other stuff I don’t remember.
Jordyn Woods says her Instagram isn’t real life:
“On our way back home gf stopped at the Starbucks cause daughter wanted a drink and some cakepops. She ordered a drink for her and her daughter and 2 cake pops. I asked her if I could get something and she said she ran out of money and she’d ‘get me something next time.’ When they got their order I asked if I could have one of the cakepops and gf said that it was her daughter’s treat for hard work and it would be wrong for me to take one since ‘I didn’t do anything that deserved being rewarded.’
“I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty upset. When we got back home my dad saw their drinks and asked where mine was. I told him that ‘I wasn’t allowed to get one cause I don’t deserve it’. His gf got upset and said I was twisting her words and the daughter just said I was being greedy and was jealous of her. I know I’m not entitled to a drink or a cakepop but I also don’t think it’s wrong to be a little annoyed.”
Redditors thought the father’s girlfriend’s behavior was reprehensible.
“Don’t be fooled, everything she did was intentional,” a person wrote.
“I hope he’s reconsidering the relationship. His girlfriend sounds horrible and selfish,” another said.
“Mistreating the kid of your partner is cruel,” a user commented.
