AIBU to be annoyed at my mum?

This is going to sound very petty and materialistic. I am very aware of that but its more the principal that gets me.
I have been after a pair of shoes for months, not because I am shoe mad or anything but for sentimental reasons. Said shoes are very rare and SO SO hard to get hold of. A pair came up in my size and I was ready to buy them, financially it was doable but a bit of a push. My mum offered to buy them for me and let me pay her back when I was more easily able to (I must say, I didn't ask. Not even a hint!) I very gratefully accepted her offer and she bought the shoes. They were delivered yesterday and she has now decided that actually she likes them and will be keeping them herself.
I am so upset because not only not going to not get them now, I won't want another pair because the sentimental reason behind them is ruined. She fully understood why I wanted them and how long I had been trying to get them. She wouldnt even know they existed if I hadnt told her I wanted them. I know there are more important things in life but I dont get why my own mum would take away something important to me just because she felt like it.

Because she's a major cunt by the sound of it. So sorry she's being a major league asshat.

Wow what a dick move by your mum!

Bake her a cake with a lump of shit in it.

I would be annoyed. This doesn't sound like the actions of someone who wanted to help you out and do something nice for you.

OP if it's possible without outing yourself could you share the sentimental reason?

Not that it's relevant, your Mum's a

YANBU. That is a very strange thing to do.

LemonRedwood Fri 12-Aug-16 23:42:40

I AM shoe mad, so this may be colouring my view slightly!

Does she understand how important this is to you or is she just trying it on? Could you use the power of playing on her guilty conscience?

purplepixy Fri 12-Aug-16 23:45:30

YANBU. Horrible behaviour from your mum.

TheRealKimmySchmidt63 Fri 12-Aug-16 23:45:48

How awful

blondieblondie Fri 12-Aug-16 23:46:11

YANBU! Who does that??

I'm interested to know the sentimental reasoning, if you're able to share? It won't change my opinion of your what your mum did though. That's crap, even for a pair of shoes that have no real meaning.

That is so mean of her OP.

CalleighDoodle Fri 12-Aug-16 23:48:28

Wow that's nrc behaviour isnt it?

i hope it's an elaborate plan so she can surprise you with them as a gift. Otherwise she sounds horrid...

ImperialBlether Fri 12-Aug-16 23:57:34

What a cow! You need to look at whether you need her around you.

*Sentimental reason* its a bit silly really.
They are Irregular Choice Panda heels. Since I was pregnant with my 1st daughter I have sung Kimya Dawson's song 'Little Panda Bear' (same for my 2nd and 3rd child) now they all refer to themselves as my pandas.
That and I just adore pandas!
The heel of the shoe is a mummy panda with her arms around her baby panda and I adore them and now the sentimentality is ruined.

Its defo not an elaborate plan to give them as a gift. Shes already wearing them.

blondieblondie Sat 13-Aug-16 00:04:37

That's as good a reason as any! I hope they destroy her feet angry

pictish Sat 13-Aug-16 00:05:47

Yanbu! Is she often self serving and uncaring like that? Seems a horrible thing to do.

PovertyPain Sat 13-Aug-16 00:05:59

She's an absolute cunt and I could not forgive her for doing this. It's not about the shoes, it's about the deceitful and selfish behaviour. Is she usually this cruel?

excessiveparanoidNNchanger Sat 13-Aug-16 00:06:31

What a fucking bitch!!!

PovertyPain Sat 13-Aug-16 00:07:00

I know I'm nasty, but I hope the bitch twists an ankle in them. angry

ArfurFacksake Sat 13-Aug-16 00:07:48

Oh OP, I'm gutted for you.
Horrid thing for your Mum to do, I know karma is not a popular belief on mn, but I hope it does exist! wink
