Man Sees His Wife Berating His Employee Who Made A Mistake, Reminds Her She’s “Not The Boss” And Tells Her To Leave

Working with your spouse can put a serious strain on the relationship. From taking the workplace conflict home to navigating between unclearly defined roles, there are too many things that prove how working with your SO may not always be the best idea. And how could it not be, when a spouse’s personality directly influences our career success, as shown by this study.

And this story shows a glimpse into how spouse dynamics can go awry when an incident happens at work. A 41-year-old male has recently shared a post on r/AITA asking if he was wrong to tell his wife she’s not the boss of his company where they both work.

The conflict began when “one of my workers accidentally ordered 20 of one part instead of 2,” and when the author’s wife found out, she “absolutely BERATED this poor guy.” The author heard his wife yelling at him, and stepped in to take the matter into his own hands.

Let’s see the full story right below and be sure to share your opinion on the whole incident in the comment section!

This is going to end in divorce. It will be fine. He doesn't need to spend his life with a crazy person on a hair trigger.

It won't be fine if there's not a prenup. She sounds like the same kind of person that would cry about how she's accustom to a certain lifestyle and get alimony. I say she needs to grow the eff up and get her own career. Stop being a lazy bitch mooching off her husband's success. He was successful BEFORE they were together, they did NOT build this company together. Women like her make me sick and give women like me (us) a bad name.

In Spain we have a saying that states: where is the cooking pot , don put your f**ng c*ck. That means dont involve close famaily in your business, otherwise things like that is going to happen...and it´s not the same to have an issue with a employee than with a familiar employee.

We have a similar saying in the States; don't sh*t where you eat.

NTA. I understand the motivation behind hiring your wife. After all, who can you trust more than your partner. However in my experience, this arrangement rarely work out unless the couple is able to compartmentalize, drawing a line between their professional and personal relationship. This is easier said than done, even for highly trained and experienced professionals.
