A dad recently shared how nurses kicked him out of the delivery room while his wife was giving birth for making inappropriate comments and jokes.
The 25-year-old man took to Reddit to determine whether he did something wrong or whether the nurse didn’t have a sense of humor.
He wrote: “My wife gave birth to our first child three days ago and in the delivery room I made a few lighthearted comments which my wife laughed at, but the joyless hag of a nurse lost her shit and kicked me out of the room.
“I calmly tried to placate the demented old boiler by explaining she has no right to be offended on other people’s behalf, but that just made her worse.
“Eventually I left before my ears started bleeding, but I feel the nurse was in the wrong for giving me shit in response to a joke between my wife and I.”
The first remark that set the nurse off was when his wife asked how things looked down there.
He answered: “I feel like I’m watching my favorite restaurant burning down.”
You have to admit, it is pretty hilarious. But that may not be the best time to make jokes like that.
After birth, the doctor had to stitch his wife up. The 25-year-old dad asked: “Would you mind putting in a few extra?”
Well, that wasn’t cool and the nurse immediately kicked him out of the room. He said that his wife didn’t mind the jokes and was hysterically laughing.
One Reddit user commented: “His whole argument is resting on ‘my wife doesn’t see a problem with it’, but like… ok cool, there’s three other professionals who have your wife and baby’s lives in their hands. He’s being a huge idiot by engaging in behavior he can see is triggering the people responsible for delivering his child.”
Another said: “You are the asshole, not just for the sexist jokes, also for using such misogynistic language to describe the nurse. I really hope you don’t teach your child to talk this way about people.”
