So over the weekend, I almost knocked out my cousin B's gf. Mind you I never liked her from the beginning but that is a different story and I was TRYING to be nice to her.
So my younger cousin M is graduating from high school and his party was Sunday. Towards the end of the party, he and he friend's started to try to suck the helium out of the balloons, and in turn began popping them. I HATE balloons. I am terrified of them. (When I was young I had tubes in my ears and everything was 10x louder than normal. I hated birthday parties and would literally sit outside by myself so stay away from balloons. The fear has never gone away.)
BF knows this and yelled across the room for my cousin to stop. Well it's embarrassing enough that I am 23 and afraid of balloons nevermind having your BF yell is across the room in front of your family. Every time they popped a balloon the hair on my neck and back would raise and I had to walk out of the room. So BF and I got into a tiff because he yelled it across the room and I didn't want people to know.
Well B's gf heard the whole fight and knew what we were talking about. She then goes over and grabs a balloon and brings it to the table we are all sitting at.. and POPS IT!!!!!! I freaked out and had to leave without saying bye to anyone. The whole family was worried because they didn't know what happened. Now I am stuck explaining to everyone that I hate balloons and that I wanted to knock her out.
So if you were in my shoes, what would you have done? Would you do damage control now, or let it slide? IDK if I should say something to B or not.
