Guy Asks If He's Wrong for Launching Onion to Spite His Annoying Mother-In-Law

We get a kick out of people being petty like this guy who uses his imperfect lawn to drive his mean neighbor insane, but we've never seen someone cause family drama with the act of pitching a red onion as far as they could. To be fair to him, they already had some cut onions, but to be fair to her, it is just an onion.

    Text - r/AmItheAsshole u/Koth1126 17 hours ago AITA for not cutting up a red onion for my mother-in- law? Edit: for clarity, we had white onions out. Sliced for burgers and chopped for hot dogs I apologise for typos. I'm terrible on the phone keyboard.

    Text - A few weeks ago my wife in I had a family BBQ. We invited both of our immediate families, their families (obviously) plus a few close (location) relatives. About 35 adults and kids total. We planned everything out and bought everything that was needed. We don't like to ask guests to bring anything but we don't say no if anyone offers

    Text - The morning of BBQ day we started to get everything ready. Went out and got the ice, cold beer and a few other last minute essentials. We set out an the chairs, games and music. Got all the condiments ready and cut up all the hot dog and burger toppings. Everything was ready to go just in time for our guests to arrive.

    Text - Everyone was settling in, playing games, eating snacks and generally enjoying the outside and good weather. My wife and I were playing the good hosts and making sure that everyone was enjoying themselves and that we were keeping to schedule with snacks, dinner then dessert. It's tougher than it sounds

    Text - It was getting close to dinner time so I started to put the meats on the grill and my wife put the fixings and sides out onto a table. That's when my mil said that she didn't see any red onion out. I told her that everything we have is out on the table. She then asked if I had any red onion inside. I said I wasn't sure but everything that was prepared was on the table

    Text - Fast forward five minutes and she's now telling me that she found a red onion in the fridge and brings it to me while I'm cooking. She wants me to slice it up for burgers. At this point I'm irritated since I'm I'm the middle of cooking and I thought this stupid onion thing was over with. I took the onion, put it to the side of the grill and told her that it wasn't necessary again since we have all the ripping prepared and out already

    Text - Apparently that was her queue to complain to everyone quietly, but not really all that quietly, that I want being an accommodating host and was being rude. I'm pissed off now but keep quiet about it. At this point, I'm making it the goal of my day to make sure that onions never gets sliced. We had everything planned out like we wanted it and she was just being a pain because that was her M.O

    Text - She still then pesters me about it rolling her eyes saying that she'll just do it. Nope not gonna happen. Here's where I might have lost my cool. I threw the onion. Not just into the garbage or back into the fridge. I threw that onion as far as I could. I think I was trying to launch it into orbit, but it probably landed about four properties away. That onion will never be seen again.

    Text - This caused my mil to leave because of how rude I was to her. Not a single other person had a complaint and was enjoying themselves. I know it's not about the onion. My wife thinks I overreacted but gets it AITA for not cutting up a red onion for my mother-in-law?

Your MIL is clearly a piece of work but you're in for a lifetime of this, you're gonna need to figure out how to let it roll off you.

She wants red onion, she does all the work herself Instead you had to make a scene. Probably hit a damn toddler four properties over playing in his sandbox with a sky onion, as well
