Well, one way to ruin a friendship is to tell your friend that their child smells like rotten meat.
An unidentified woman claims that she told her friend Chloe that her 15-year-old son smelled incredibly bad, and she now says that the moment of honestly placed a wedge between them.
The two coworkers, who later became “good friends”, used to hang out together nearly every weekend. The anonymous woman shared on Reddit that things got awkward when Chloe’s 15-year-old son “Braden” came into the picture.
The author decided to take it to the AITA subreddit to ask fellow Redditors if she was in the wrong for telling her friend that the real reason she doesn’t like her kid is that he stinks.
The post gained a lot of attention, and you can check it out for yourself below:
Most Reddit users thought that she’s in the wrong, and they urged her to apologize to her friend, pointing out that she could have handled the situation much, much better. However, some users suggested that maybe the teen’s body odor could be a sign of something deeper, and therefore the mother should have expressed greater concern for him.
