A frustrated wife sparked outrage on Reddit when she revealed that she stole her husband’s car to get to work. But it wasn’t the getaway itself that caused so much buzz! Here is her full story.
They Have a Life Together
OP is a 33-year-old woman who is married to a 36-year-old man.
She’s nurse, and her husband works a fairly typical office job.
She Can’t Catch Her Breath
As with most health care professionals, OP has been on the run and working crazy hours pretty much since the start of the pandemic.
She barely has time to breathe, but she knows her job is important.
He Loves the Farm Life
Meanwhile, OP’s husband is very close to his family and spends a lot of time with them.
Many of them live on a ranch in the middle of nowhere, and that’s his favorite place to be.
He Just Can’t Stay Away
Family events are a source of constant conflict for OP and her husband.
There’s always something going on at the ranch, and the husband wants to be there for all of it.
But She Can’t Be There
That’s fine with OP, but the problem is that her husband wants her to come along with him, too.
Since the ranch is so remote, it’s just not possible for her to be there and also work her somewhat unpredictable shifts at the hospital.
This Time Was Special
Recently, OP’s in-laws were hosting a BBQ at the ranch, and all of her husband’s siblings and their spouses were going.
He really wanted her to come along this time, but she couldn’t. She had a scheduled shift that she couldn’t miss.
She Put Her Foot Down
OP’s husband was upset, complaining that she never prioritized family.
They argued about it for a while the day before the BBQ, but OP finally put her foot down and said she was working.
They Stopped Talking
At that point, OP’s husband stopped arguing but sulked off, and they didn’t really talk the rest of the day.
It Was Rotten Luck
The next morning, OP got up to head in to work, but all of her tires were flat. Flustered and frantic about getting to the hospital on time, she asked her husband to drive her. He agreed.
He Double-Crossed Her!
So OP and her husband piled into his car and headed for the hospital, but it didn’t take her long to realize he was going the wrong way. He drove them out to the ranch where his family was gathering instead of taking her to work.
He Said She Was Out of Luck
Needless to say, OP was furious, but her husband laughed it off and said she’d have to sit that shift out.
He went into the house to join the party and left her outside to fume and try to calm down.
She Stole His Wheels
Once her husband was out of sight, though, OP checked the time and realized she could still get to work if she hurried.
He had left his keys with her, so she took the car and burned rubber toward the hospital.
She Shut Him Out
On the way, OP’s husband started blowing up her phone, so she turned it off.
She didn’t look at it again until about halfway through her shift.
He Was Hopping Mad
No surprise, OP’s husband had left several angry messages.
When she finally called him back, he accused her of manipulating him and making him look like a fool in front of the family.
He Can’t Trust Her
OP and her husband have been fighting ever since, and his family is angry with her, too.
Her hubby says he doesn’t think he can ever trust her again.
She Could Have Lost Her Job
OP feels really bad that there was an ugly scene, but she was afraid she would lose her job if she didn’t show up.
He Was Named After a God
Recently, a Reddit user shared a story where he legally changed his name, and as a result, his father threatened him. Here’s the full story. His Father Gave Him a Name That Resulted in Him Being Bullied, He Legally Changed It, and Now His Father Is Demanding He Change It Back
