One of my brothers friends who always seemed like a nice guy and normal (which is weird most of my brothers friends are a little weird) who we will call Conner.
All goes normal nothing unusual until the very end of the night. Turns out my bro's friend made a "joke" to my step brother (who we will call alex) that creeped him out and ended up causing drama between step mom and my brothers friend/brother himself about calling 911 that I will explain at the end.
The joke from Conner was (in a serious voice) "So I want to tell you something. I have a plan in a couple years to collect fetuses and kill my ex girlfriend." To which Alex fake laughed so as not to make it awkward. Conner responds to that with "You think I am joking?" serious face and then Alex walked away.
Now Alex decides to talk to his mom about it which is never a good idea because she can be a bit of a drama queen in general and being drunk is likely going to cause more. Well it did as we were all about to leave she comes storming up, points at Conner and yells at him to go upstairs. He does and then she starts screaming about needing someone to call 911.
Ok nobody else knows what the hell's going on and eventually it comes out what Conner said. My dad said nobody is calling 911 and yelling went on for god knows how long as this enfolds. Ends up everyone went home, cops weren't called (they really couldn't do anything imo even if this was serious).
So I ask my brother about what Conner said and he tells me "Oh he jokes like that all the time, they just over reacted. He has never had a girlfriend anyway so he has no ex to kill."
To top it off my brother tells him he shouldn't say that to strangers the next day when he comes over and Conner responds with "Why? I don't see anything weird with it at all it's normal."
So am I the only one who finds that weird? That feels like joking to friends might be ok with it I guess, but to do it to strangers you don't know (this was the first time Conner had met everyone except me and my bro) seems like a dumb thing to say. What do you guys think?
