A woman was left outraged after her stepmother swooped in to blow out all the candles on her birthday cake while she was distracted. You can check out this incredibly awkward moment in the video below.
OK, so it's a massively weird thing to do in the first place, but - let's face it - what with Covid-19 and everything - are the days of blowing out candles on the way out anyway?
It's a contamination risk, that's for sure.
Anyway, back to the matter at hand.
The clip, which has been viewed more than two million times, was taken at the 19th birthday dinner of Mandy Bui, from Atlanta, Georgia.
The gathered friends and family sing 'Happy Birthday' to Mandy, while she patiently waits to blow the candles atop her cake out.
However, as she turns around to chat to her dad briefly, her stepmum swings into action and blows out the candles in one go.
Mandy explained: "I had the 'Happy Birthday' song sung to me and afterwards I didn't immediately blow it out because my father had said something to me, hence why I turned towards him.
"It was during this time my stepmother blew out my candles and I turned back around to give her a look."
It might not surprise you to learn that Mandy says she has a somewhat strained relationship with her dad's wife, and by the way she looks at her in shock as the video ends, you can start to understand why.
Mandy continued: "I was definitely extremely annoyed because I don't have a good connection with her outside of this video and it felt like she did it to spite me."
Well, we can't possibly comment on that front, but it is something of a strange thing to do. If it is a power play, it's a very odd one.
Anyway, folks who have seen the video online appear to be almost in consensus for once.
One person commented: "Seriously, she should be wearing that cake after that."
We can't advocate for that sort of behaviour either, but each to their own opinion.
Another person wrote: "Oh honey the way I'd have caused a SCENE."
After all, it was her party, and that entitles her to cry if she wants to, apparently.
A third person said: "I would've just been like 'what'd you wish for?' cause I think it would've made her feel stupid."
