He Eggsploded at His Wife When She Asked Him to Make Her Some Runny Eggs

A self-righteous husband took all kinds of flak from Redditors when he revealed that he refused his wife’s special breakfast request. Who knew runny eggs had this much power? Here is the full story.

It’s Was a Full House

OP is a 36-year-old man who is married to a 35-year-old woman.

They have three children: two girls who are 12 and 11 years old, and a boy who is nine.

They Would Make a Day of It

One recent weekend, OP and his wife decided they were going to have a family togetherness day.

The plan was to eat breakfast together, watch a movie, have lunch, play some games, and then adjourn for the night.

As part of the festivities, OP thought it would be nice if he made a big breakfast for everyone.

And, since his wife normally does about 75% of the cooking, it would also give her a break.

So OP got up early and started working on a big spread that included scrambled eggs, waffles, sausage, bacon…pretty much the works!

The kids were thrilled and loaded up their plates when he told them it was ready.

But just as he was about ready to sit down and eat, OP’s wife asked him to make her some eggs over easy.

Since she was the only one in the family who liked liquid, runny yolks, OP hadn’t bothered to make anything but scrambled eggs.

And he really wasn’t in the mood to take special requests.

So OP told his wife that he was done cooking, but he suggested she could make her own eggs if she really wanted something different.

But It Would Make Her Happy

It would take OP just a couple of minutes, his wife argued, and it would make her happy.

He Just Didn’t Care

OP repeated that he wasn’t going to make the eggs for his wife.

She pushed back, saying everything was still out and hot, and he was really still cooking.

Still, OP stood his ground, and the two went back and forth with their quiet bickering for a couple more rounds.

Finally, OP went and sat down, and it was over and done with.

But in the aftermath, the small fight with his wife bothered OP for a couple of reasons.

She Had Plenty to Eat

First, there was plenty of food to eat, and he knew his wife also liked scrambled eggs.

He didn’t understand why she needed to drop a special request on him right as he was finishing up.

More than that, though, OP was upset with both of them for turning something so minor into an argument.

He thought it should have been a non-issue either way.

She Was Being Unreasonable

Overall, OP still thinks he was right and that his wife was being unreasonable, even if it was just a very small request.

So he took to Reddit to see what other people thought.

Well, Redditors came down hard on OP.

Most of them said that he was just being plain petty and didn’t understand why he couldn’t take a few minutes to make his wife happy.

Some commenters point out that husbands and wives are supposed to do little things to make each other’s lives better and happier.

Refusing a direct request to do that is sort of like a breach of contract.

Others agree that OP was maybe technically right, and that there was plenty of other food that his wife could have eaten and liked.

But even they think he missed a golden opportunity to strengthen their bond by going the extra mile.
