In that moment, that particular moment I felt so much humiliation and contempt. I felt like she was treating me as less than even in her hard times. I decided to not go and just go back home, She wrote.

Prioritizing circumstances over feelings is easier said than done, something similar happened with this user Everyone sucks, when she failed to support her husband over a really small issue that the Reddit community termed as "petty". She took to Reddit's AITA community to share, "My mother-in-law and I don't have a close relationship," wrote the 31-year-old woman. She's civil towards me but can be a bit passive-aggressive at times and we tend to disagree oftentimes. We live in a different state. FIL passed away suddenly and MIL told me and my husband to come to attend the funeral. She booked our tickets to fly to her state."

She then went on to explain how things went south when her MIL decided to book her an economy class and her husband a first-class ticket. She wrote, "the issue started when my husband told me that we couldn't sit together on the plane because his mom had booked him a first-class ticket while I got economy. I was flabbergasted by this. I tried asking him why but he urged me to "suck it up, and we'll talk about it later." In that moment, that particular moment I felt so much humiliation and contempt. I felt like she was treating me as less than even in her hard times. I decided to not go and just go back home. My husband was shocked by my decision to go home and tried to convince me to just go but I declined."
