A man asked the internet for advice after his wife stopped talking to him over an issue involving a missed flight.
The 47-year-old husband in question took to Reddit to ask the users if he was in the wrong for leaving his wife at the airport and boarding their flight without her when she ran late.
According to the man, he and his partner were set to visit his daughter from a previous relationship over the weekend and had already bought tickets to her state well in advance.
On the day of the trip, while at the airport for a connecting flight, the man’s wife decided to go grab a coffee despite having just 15 minutes left before boarding.
The man also claimed that his wife’s careless behavior previously already got them in trouble, whereas they one time missed their flight to see his daughter because she overslept.
Not willing to take any risks this time, the man boarded their flight on his own after his wife failed to come back to the gate in time.
“I waited by the gate but the attendant said they would need to shut the gate in 2 minutes. I waited and waited, but she didn’t show up. The attendant asked if I wanted to board, otherwise she was closing the gate. I tried to plead with her to wait a couple of minutes but she insisted that she couldn’t. So, I boarded the plane,” he wrote.
“A few minutes later my wife calls me saying the attendant won’t let her on, they had already removed the boarding ramp at that point.
She told me I needed to tell them to let me off the plane to be with her and I said no.It is not fair to do this again to Jess, I said I told you we didn’t have time but you decided to go anyways. I told her to go purchase a new ticket for the next flight and I would see her when she arrives.
And while the wife eventually followed her husband and reunited with his daughter, the man was in for a big surprise when she lashed out at him when they were in private and told him he shouldn’t have left her alone at the airport despite her being late because of a coffee break.
After asking the internet for advice, the man was inundated with words of support with readers suggesting his wife was selfish and self-absorbed.
“Your wife is very selfish. Imagine missing time with your child because you thought coffee was more important? During a move no less. The only option is to stop coddling your wife as apparently people have been doing all her life,” someone wrote.
“Your wife is acting like an entitled child.No, we’re not holding the plane up so she can get coffee.
I used to have to travel a lot for work and was always booked tight layovers and ppl lallygagging at the airport make me crazy.Natural consequences are the best teacher. Maybe she’ll learn she’s less important than literally everybody else on the plane,” another said.
Some readers also suggested the woman, who is allegedly never late for work, might be causing problems on purpose because she is jealous of her stepdaughter and the attention her husband is giving her.
