Husband Asks His Friend To Leave So His Worn-Out Wife That Works In Healthcare Can Rest, Friend Lashes Out

Everyone knows that there are a few things in life that a person absolutely must have – well, having a secure and healthy friendship is one of them. Our peers help us grow into these outstanding individuals, and with them, we’re much closer to living that stress-free life that everybody yearns to have.

Of course, finding that strong connection can sometimes feel like a rocky journey. We’re all different people with contrasting mindsets, and there’s a big chance that your once dearest friend will turn into an individual that doesn’t hold the same values anymore. Growing together doesn’t always result in an everlasting bond, but what’s crucial is for you to remember to put your well-being first, even if it means cutting off a friend or two.

Sometimes an argument provoked by a simple request leaves you no other choice than to reconsider your friendship

This online user took his concern to one of the most popular online communities to discuss his somewhat absurd situation. “AITA for kicking my friend out of my bedroom so my wife could take a nap?” A fight provoked by a simple request bothered the author enough to seek help from fellow Reddit users, as he wanted to find out whether he’s indeed the villain of the story. The post received over 20K upvotes and 2.5K worth of comments discussing his friend’s toxic approach.

Redditor wondered if he’s indeed a jerk for asking his friend to leave as his overworked wife wanted to rest after her nursing shift

The author of the post began his story with an introduction; he’s a 28-year-old husband to his 27-year-old partner who is a certified nursing assistant. The wife works day and night and is also attending school to become an autopsy technician, so the woman often comes back home quite exhausted.

The man revealed that his significant other constantly picks up extra shifts, works doubles and even triples, and due to such a busy lifestyle, she frequently takes a nap once she comes back home from her duties.

However, a rather unpleasant situation occurred one day involving the OP’s friend. The author shared that his wife and the friend do not get along as he tends to make the woman uncomfortable, yet they’ve agreed not to stand in between their friendships just because one of them doesn’t get along with someone. Well, the friend was over at their house, playing video games with the OP when his wife called to let him know that she was on her way home. The man disclosed that the woman sounded pretty exhausted, and he even asked her if she would be okay driving or if he should come and pick her up.

The woman said that she was fine to drive and that she’d see the OP later. The guy also decided to reveal that the only TV they have is located in their bedroom, where he and his friend were playing the aforementioned video games. A couple of minutes later, the author’s wife came back home and he went to greet her.

The poor woman then practically collapsed into her husband’s arms and said that she could really use a nap. The OP took her to their bedroom and politely told the friend that it was time for him to leave, as his wife needed to rest. The friend then began to talk back and asked these unnecessary questions, suggesting that the woman could just sleep there while they were playing, yet the author explained that the silly game could wait as his wife’s needs always come first.

The friend then asked another question and wondered why the OP’s wife couldn’t just crash on the couch; the man says that he wasn’t going to make his overworked wife sleep on their sofa just because he wanted to keep playing the video games. As expected, the overly audacious friend decided to cause a scene, so he slammed down his controller and went to leave – however, before he did, he turned to the woman and told her “I bet you’re happy he always feels like he has to pick you over anyone”.

Later on, the OP’s friends bombarded his phone, basically saying that what he did was against the infamous “bro” protocol and that it was rude to kick the friend out just so that his wife could sleep. On the other hand, the man revealed that all of his married friends are totally on his side, so, perhaps this situation is a matter of maturity.

I'm 47 with a mortgage and full time job and have a friend thats been on disability or workers comp or something for his entire adult life because of a car accident. Recently texted me that I'm a piece of s**t friend because I don't "hang out" anymore. Sometimes you gotta just tell somebody to f@#$ off and get their own life.

I think he should have asked his "friend" to leave BEFORE his wife got home. She didn't need to hear that bullsh*t.

At the very least, he could've at least told his friend hey, my wife's gonna be home in X minutes and we'll have to go do something else so she can sleep.

Is it any wonder that all the "bro" friends are single, while all the married friends get it? E, and all his bros, are AHs. Let them be incels without you. This may be the very first time I've ever quoted the Bible, but "when I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: But when I became a man, I put away childish things."
