The truth hurts sometimes…
Especially when it comes to your spouse regarding your kids…
But that’s why the stories on Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page are always so interesting! Because they get into the nitty-gritty of life!
Check out this story and let us know what you think in the comments.
“I (m23) am married to my wife, Dana (F 25). I work and she takes care of the house and our son, James(almost 3)
I work every day from 6 AM- 4 PM sometimes later depending on the shift. Before I go to work, I change and dress James (he is a light sleeper and wakes up to my alarm) and I try make sure he is all set for my wife to take care of him, I even lay out his lunch and snacks, so all she has to do is play with him and give him lunch
Well over the last month or so I will come home to see James sitting in front of the TV, as my wife sits on the couch and reads. His diaper is almost always full. This makes me so mad, and I try to tell her in the nicest way possible that she needs to start playing with him, changing him at the very least.
Well 3 days ago I came home from work, with some KFC for us to eat, and James was in front of the tv, not changed, and not even fed, let me repeat that. HE WAS NOT FED LUNCH. she was on the couch reading.
This put me over the edge. I simply couldn’t believe it.
Well here is where I might be TA.
I set the food down, filled a cup with cold water and poured it over her crotch. And told her that she couldn’t have dinner.
Ofc she started yelling and asked why. I pointed to my son, I told her that if our son was treated like this than she should at least know what it’s like to be uncomfortable and unfed
She said that I would have no idea how hard it is to be a mom because I work all the time. I said “well at least i take care of James, at least I don’t neglect him.”
She said. “Fine you are care of him then” And left, she’s been staying her moms, and all of her Siblings have been calling me and telling me I need to apologize And what an a**hole I am for calling her neglectful and pouring water on her.
Am I the a**hole? What should I do?”
Now let’s see what Reddit users said about this.
This reader said this guy is NTA and that the wife sounds like she needs therapy.
Another individual said it sounds like she may be suffering from postpartum depression.
But this Redditor said maybe she’s just a shi**y parent…hmmm…
