It is no secret to anyone that attending a wedding can be very expensive, with costs increasing rapidly – from transportation to clothes and gifts.
One woman recently claimed that she spent thousands to attend her friend’s wedding in Texas, but was not invited at the last minute due to her job.
In a video shared on TikTok, Dr.. Emily Long (@dr.ems), A Harvard resident, she shares how the bride decided not to want her at the wedding because she works with Covid patients.
She explained, “Tell me about a time when you weren’t invited because you work in the hospital during a pandemic I’ll go first…
“So tomorrow I was supposed to fly straight from my 28-hour shift to attend one of my close friends’ weddings on which I spent thousands of dollars and took my very limited vacation time to attend.
“And when I texted her this morning to let her know I’m getting tested and taking all these precautions before I fly to try to make her feel comfortable, I absolutely panicked to find out that I’m taking care of patients.
“Who would have thought a doctor takes care of patients? I don’t know.
“So I wasn’t invited because I made her feel uncomfortable for her and other people I guess.”
“Anyway, I just bought a non-refundable plane ticket to Texas tomorrow, so if anyone wants to comment, let me know,” she added.
Since then, the TikTok video of Dr. Long, which has been viewed more than four million times and garnered more than 550,000 likes.
Thousands also took the time to comment, with one saying, “You need a new friend, sister.”
Another replied, “Hold on, but she’s having a wedding? But she’s worried about you? What in the world?”
A third wrote: “My daughter is an EMT and our entire family was not invited to the events. However, she is the one to take care of her in the emergency room.”
Another added, “That’s just cruel..so at the last minute? Did you know you work in the medical field all the time anyway? You were taking precautions.”
