A stressed-out husband drove Redditors to outrage when he revealed that his wife’s best friend hurled an accusation his way. It seems that no good deed goes unpunished. Here is the full story.
She Has It Rough
OP is a man whose wife has a lifelong friend who has recently fallen on hard times.
They’re Helping Out
The friend recently became a single mother, and OP and his wife have been helping her out in various ways.
She Uses Her Wheels
Since the woman is strapped for cash, she’s working two jobs.
But she doesn’t have a car, so OP’s wife has been driving her friend around as much as possible.
She Pulls Him In
Sometimes, though, OP’s wife isn’t available, so she asks her husband to pitch in, too.
He Wants to Make Her Happy
For the most part, OP is happy to help out.
He thinks it’s the right thing to do, and more importantly, it makes his wife happy.
He’s Their Chauffeur
But OP admits it does get a little old sometimes.
He’s driven the friend’s kids to school, taken her to buy groceries, and generally just driven them all over town.
They’re Always Around
And OP’s wife also invites her friend and the kids to do all sorts of things.
They go camping or take other small trips, or the whole crew just crashes at OP’s house for the night.
She’s Not Always Available
Usually, everything works out fine, but sometimes, OP’s wife isn’t available when her friend needs her.
Or the wife will get called away on short notice.
He Has to Fill In
When that happens, OP’s wife asks him to fill in for him rather than just cancel or reschedule her plans with her friend.
He’s Okay With It
As with all the other situations OP has found himself in with the friend, he doesn’t mind handling things on his own now and then.
She Was Going to Be Alone
But that all changed recently when OP’s friend was going to be alone for the weekend.
Her kids were going out of town without her, and OP’s wife was afraid she’d be lonely.
He Texted the Invite
Like a good friend, OP’s wife wanted to invite her buddy over for dinner.
But OP’s wife was busy doing something on her phone, so she asked him to text her friend instead.
She Rocked His World
That’s when the old friend dropped a bomb on OP that changed his world.
She Didn’t Want to Date Him
When she answered his text, the friend told OP she would come to dinner.
But she wanted his assurance that he was just inviting her as a friend and was not looking for a girlfriend.
He Told on Her
OP was shocked by that response and immediately showed the entire text conversation to his wife.
She was surprised, too, but didn’t think it was that big of a deal.
She Was Suspicious of Him
Still, OP’s wife called up her friend, who explained that she was suspicious of OP’s motives because he was spending so much time with her and her kids.
It Was All Her Fault
OP’s wife explained to her friend that she was the one who had asked her husband to help out all those times.
She Was Sorry
A few days later, OP’s friend apologized to her and said that she had just been having an emotional day.
She hadn’t meant anything by her comment.
It Was Done and Done
As far as OP’s wife was concerned, that settled the matter. Life could go on as usual.
He Was Finished with Her
But OP had learned his lesson and told his wife he was done helping her friend.
The only time he would be around her at all would be when his wife was there, too.
He Doesn’t Want to Be Accused
OP’s wife thinks he’s being silly and wants him to go back to pitching in for her friend.
But he’s not having any part of it and wants to avoid any possible accusations in the future.
Maybe He Should Stay Away
Redditors overwhelmingly agree with OP and think he should steer clear of his wife’s friend, especially any alone time with her.
Some of them think the friend is being completely creepy, and others wonder why OP’s wife would put him in a vulnerable situation in the first place.
Many commenters advise OP to look for ways to distance both him and his wife from the friend.
