She was proud that she had been able to attend one of the best public universities in the US despite it not being a private Ivy League. When her graduation rolled around, she was excited to give her younger sister a tour. After all, she could be following in her footsteps in a couple of years.

The woman’s younger sister was a junior in high school when she came to visit. Her grades were good, and she hoped the college would inspire her sister. The woman asked her sibling continuously what she thought of the place, but that’s when her parents stepped in.

To the woman’s surprise, the parents told her to stop provoking her sister. She would get better grades and attend a much more prestigious school than the woman. Shocked, the woman dropped the subject and didn’t speak about it for years.

When her sister finished her senior year and graduated high school, they eagerly awaited her results. She had her eye on Ivy League schools but had applied to some less prestigious colleges as a backup. However, her parents were confident that she’d get into one of the highest-ranking schools in the US. A school far better than the woman’s…

The Results Were in

But the result was different from what they had all hoped for. Despite her sister doing well in her exams, the best school the sister was accepted to was… the woman’s college! Shockingly, the Ivy League universities had rejected her, and she was devastated.

Time passed, and the sister began preparing for her first year at college. She was disappointed to be attending her backup school but excited for this next chapter in her life. One day, the family sat down for a final meal together before she left, and the woman said something she shouldn’t have.

It All Started With a Memory

The woman said, ‘Yesterday during dinner, my family was reminiscing over visiting the college campus when I graduated.’

She Was Right

They were all enjoying a lovely evening, remembering the time they’d visited the campus together when the woman turned to her sister and reminded her that, during that time, she had said they’d end up at the same college. She was basically saying, ‘I told you so’.  Unintentionally, the comment soured the mood. Her parents stepped in and told the woman off for putting her sister down.

Was She in the Wrong?

The woman had never intended to put her sister down. She was just reminding her that she had called it years before. She felt it was unfair that her parents were mad at her for telling the truth. She turned to the internet for advice.

One person said, ‘I would have asked why they thought it was a put-down to attend the same college as you.’

Another commented, ‘I’m guessing she’s under a lot of stress right now from the parents who think her going to this school would be a worst-case scenario.’
