My boyfriend’s family has a very sarcastic sense of humor. For example they will joke around when my boyfriend isn’t right on time to meet me somewhere, that he is with some other girl. I joke back and pretend that I am going to hurt them. Even his parents joke around this way with everyone else. I actually find it funny and I know how to take a joke. I also have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor.
However, one night at dinner, we were talking about how my boyfriend wanted to buy a EXTREMELY cheap house in the area of Long Beach. I was joking and said wow it must have mold growing in it and be in a bad neighborhood for the price to be that cheap. And I was jokingly saying, how my boyfriend would have to walk me to my car if we ever lived there, because it’s probably so dangerous. His older sister blurts out, “You’re ugly, get over yourself.” And my boyfriend starts laughing, not even jokingly defending me back saying “no she’s gorgeous.” After that comment his sister says, “the only thing you’re good at his spending his money,” then “you hardly even work, you spend more time shopping.” None of those statements are true, but it was just like wtf, do you really need to go that far?
My boyfriend was laughing the whole time at this. I may have found it more funny if he was defending me a little bit. I feel like I’m being picked on with comments like that. What do you think? Wouldn’t you be upset if someone was bashing on you and then your boyfriend didn’t say one thing to defend you and just laughed with his sister?
Thanks for reading.
