A user asked the forum, Am I a jerk for calling my husband insane for missing work to teach me a lesson because I didn’t iron his uniform?
A few days ago, the original poster (SAHM with 3) was in the midst of doing laundry when her husband, who is the breadwinner, works as a pilot and asked if she could iron his uniform before his shift.
WHAT DOES SHE SAY
OP says that she didn’t agree because she was busy with laundry, then kids’ homework, then cooking, etc. OP said that she may not find the time to do it.
HE IGNORED HER
OP’s husband turned around and walked away, completely ignoring what she was saying. An hour later, OP’s husband came downstairs freaking out, asking why she didn’t iron his uniform when he asked her to.
OP told him that she was busy and reminded him of how she didn’t say yes to his request.
HE BLEW UP
OP’s husband blew up, saying that she doesn’t care about him displaying professionalism at work. OP says that It’s not like it was dirty; it just needed some ironing.
HE STARTED LECTURING
OP’s husband lectured her about how his work was important, and although OP IS a SAHM, she should still prioritize his job.
OP’s husband decided to miss his shift as a way to teach OP a lesson and show her how her lack of cooperation and her refusal to help him out could affect the money that keeps coming in.
SHE CALLED HIM INSANE
OP called him insane for missing the shift, and he got offended, and OP’s husband called her a hypocrite for calling him insane and acting all surprised when it was OP who caused this situation to happen.
OP thought that she could have taken some time off doing her chores to iron his uniform, but still thought his reaction was a bit much.
IT FEELS LIKE ABUSE
“OP’s husband sounds like the type to abuse and punish OP for any imaginary transgression financially.
Does he get violent with you, OP? Yell a lot? Yell at the kids? Has he been a good husband and father?”
IT IS UNFAIR
“Husband can fly a plane, can’t do his own ironing.”
LET HIM TAKE CARE OF CHILDREN
“The next time he pulls that stunt… You tell him since you missed your work shift. I’m skipping mine. And leave him all day with the kids by himself…..see how he feels then.”
HE COULD HAVE DONE IT
“He is a grown man and could have just ironed it himself for once.
That said, how can a pilot just miss his shift like that? Don’t they have flights to catch, and just not showing up to work would cause huge delays and stuff? Or do airlines always have backup pilots sitting around? Not related to the judgment; just curious.
I’m asking because just not going to work like that as a pilot sounds highly irresponsible to me as an outsider and that it easily could cost you your job.
Maybe there is someone here who has some insider knowledge.”
“Love when a job is so important that you don’t dare to wear a potentially slightly wrinkly uniform but think it is okay to MISS A SHIFT. This isn’t about a uniform; it’s a power play.”
