A Reddit user shared how she took revenge from her husband by switching off the Wi-Fi.
FinalWintersEve said that she and her partner were on their maternity/paternity leave with their newborn twins and her husband started spending too much time in the bathroom.
She wrote: “Anytime my husband SHOULD be doing something with the children ( it’s his turn for a diaper, a bottle, even just soothing a fussy newborn) he ALWAYS goes to the bathroom first.
“My husband is on medication that makes him spend a lot of time in the bathroom about an hour after a meal. It’s a medication he has been on and off several times over the past year.
“He is never on it for more than a few weeks, and it does not affect him all the time, but he always claims that is why he is in the bathroom. I would rather let him use the restroom first than have to put down a baby mid task, but over the past couple months he has been spending more and more time in there.
“He always takes his phone. He is always watching YouTube. His average session is 25 minutes in there, often longer, rarely shorter. Yesterday was a week and a half since I started truly keeping track, and he, only twice in 10 days, not ditched me to go camp out in the bathroom and let me finish 80% of the childcare.
“Today I started a new rule. If he is in the bathroom for more than 10 minutes, I flip the Wi-Fi off. He has not spend more than 15 minutes in the bathroom at a stretch today, but is extremely upset.
“I feel like the fact that without the Wi-Fi his uncontrollable toilet issue cleared up rather quickly proves why it needs to be done, but he feels I am being unreasonable, and I need to make sure sleep deprivation isn’t making me an a**hole.”
Fellow Reddit users agreed that she did the right thing and started criticizing her husband.
One commented: “What kind of a man f***s around on the internet while his baby screams and cries? He deserves it.”
Another agreed: “Screw him for trying to say she is being unreasonable while he sits around watching YouTube and listening to his babies cry and his wife struggle.”
A third added: “Your husband is a huge, huge a**hole, though. What kind of partner leaves their spouse alone with TWO babies that need to be tended to.”
