A WOMAN was left fuming after she had to miss her holiday to Disneyland because her niece deliberately tore her passport.
The 21-year-old woman, from the UK, had booked a trip to Paris with her friends, which included a trip to Disneyland Paris.
However, her six-year-old niece, called J, was left jealous that she couldn't go – which is where the problems started.
She wrote on Reddit: "This wasn’t good enough for J so she started whingeing, and then screaming, so my sister took her home."
However, her sister brought her niece and her 2-year-old nephew around the day before she was due to fly.
The woman continued: "I was packing my suitcase and had all the things I was taking spread around my room, my passport was on my desk, but when I went to pack it, it was gone.

"We finally found it in the possession of my nephew, and he’d ripped through the page with my photo rendering it useless.
"When my sister asked him what he was doing with it he told us that J had given it to him.
"My sister started interrogating J and she finally admitted that it wasn’t fair that I got to go to Disney and she didn’t, so she gave it S and told him they were playing hide and seek with it."
The woman was left fuming and not only was she £725 out of pocket, but she wasn't able to go as she didn't have time to get an emergency passport.

She said she told her sister to pay her back, but she refused as it would mean using the money they had saved for their Christmas presents.
However, when she asked on Reddit if she was in the wrong, everyone was on her side.
One person wrote: "A loss of some Christmas gifts would be a lesson to them, at least the older one who knows better, and to the parents."
Another person said: "Your niece very deliberately prevented you from taking a vacation you paid for. Of course they should pay you back everything you paid for your trip."
A third added: "Parents are responsible for the actions of their children, regardless of how expensive those actions are."
The woman added later on that she ended up asking her friends to buy some presents for her young nephew, who didn't know any better, but not for her niece.
