'Where's my salute?': Military wife insists on being saluted, accidentally creates brand new rule for the entire base to 'salute vehicle stickers'

Being a military spouse is a big deal to some people. Their husband or wife joins the military, and in order to go with them, they travel to whichever base their spouse happens to be stationed at. It can oftentimes be a lonely life. So the military spouses become a tight-knit group. After all, who else can you spend time with while you're at the base? Maybe that's why so many military spouses take their partner's ranking so seriously. They think that because their husband or wife is an official…

'If you think I'm the only one mad and upset with you two, think again': Entitled aunt returns Christmas card and pens a scathing note telling her nephew and his wife that they should "be ashamed"

Some people get really hung up on thank-you cards . Plenty of folks place a high value on gift-giving, and for some reason, they are also very insistent on receiving a thank-you note. Thanking the gift-giver as you open their present should be enough, right? When you can look the person in the eyes and genuinely appreciate their thoughtfulness and chat about the gift, that seems like it should be sufficient. But some people believe that if you don't send a physical thank-you card as soon as pos…

'I can't be the only one who thinks it's crazy for my husband to buy his ex a house': Woman won't let her husband buy a house for his ex-wife; family makes her out to be the bad guy

What do you think about this situation? So, a married couple is living together and expecting a baby together. Her husband was previously married with kids until he divorced his ex-wife after she cheated on him. The husband let his ex and kids stay in their fully paid-off home, and he moved out. Fast forward a bit, and the ex loses the house and is left with no money (we're still a little confused about how that happened). She's now in an apartment. The OP's husband wants to buy her another hou…

'I eventually snapped': Nitpicking aunt relentlessly terrorizes the bride-to-be; heroic bride stands up for herself and threatens to uninvite her

Anytime a wedding includes a blending of cultures, there are bound to be feathers that get rustled the wrong way. We all would hope that our family members could be cool enough to just back off and not over-step in the wedding planning, but we all know how family matters go– someone's going to take things too far.

'Without consulting anyone, I switched our tickets last minute': Dad abandons daughter on family vacation to take a 40th anniversary trip with his wife

Alright, so here's the deal. Our OP (aka the dad) did in fact change their family vacation plans the night before departure, leaving his daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids hanging. But tbh, he might be valid in this case. Our OP and his wife have been dreaming about a romantic getaway to celebrate their love for the 40th anniversary for a while. It might be the only trip they can manage for a while due to the costs. But when their daughter caught wind of it...

'[I called] my wife a nerf herder': Husband derided for insulting wife with obscure Star Wars reference

Relationships are an ongoing affair, with constant growth and change of the individuals necessitating growth and change of the relationship itself. Of course, with the tendency for couples to establish codependency and isolate themselves from any other social interaction, often this growth and change can lead the couple in strange new directions , causing them to morph into unrecognizable amorphous symbiotes vaguely representing their former selves. Part of this involves adopting pet names for…

'[The housing developer] paid me ten grand to not sue them': Housing developer continually tries to push couple off their land, couple gathers evidence and consults a lawyer

There was a big shift in the housing market a few years ago, and this couple was right there to witness it happening in their own neighborhood. This couple did everything right while buying a home : they purchased a plot of land, built a home on it, and made sure there was no HOA to control them. But then a certain illness made sure to ruin the early 2020s for all of us, and it had people moving around like crazy. Suddenly, the couple found themselves surrounded by new neighbors. And, as happen…

'Someone... was still on her account': Call center rep helps woman find her cheating husband and cancel his TV plan

This woman was confused why she got charged $49, so she phoned up a call center for help. The person on the other end of the line, u/boyinblack13x, ended up going above and beyond at their job that day: they helped their customer find this missing ex. In my own personal “sure grandma, let's get you to bed” moment, I remember a time when you could share passwords between streaming services. It was a sneaky way to stay on mom and dad's Netflix plan while you went off to college. Then, these turne…

'She's deluded': Husband rudely refuses to leave the family boot dryer at home, turns out she was trying to surprise him with a new one

My major revelation from this thread is the fact that a “boot dryer” exists. I mean, it makes complete sense, but for some reason, I have never conceptualized its existence—and this is coming from a guy who wears boots and occasionally has wet boots… I could have used one of these years ago. But my ignorance regarding boot dryers is not the issue at hand here; rather, it's this family's disagreement regarding the priority of usage of theirs. This husband stood his ground when his wife began ins…

‘She begged for my husband’: Karen attempts to get computer for free by demanding to speak to owner's husband

Selling things online is a fickle business. It starts off fairly simple, you post an ad along with your contact info. You get a couple of replies, maybe get ghosted once or twice, perhaps a prank phone call or two. But the world of online business is a strange one, and it is bound to bring some pretty strange people to your doorstep if you are not careful. Here, in this case, OP posted an ad for a computer, stating the price of 900. Not one minute later, OP got a phone call. At first, everythin…

'Now I don't fill the tray': Couple's hilariously petty ice-tray standoff freezes over

Every couple is comprised of two people: The one who consistently replenishes things, providing consistent predictability in the availability of goods, and the one who refuses to replenish, instead choosing the path of disorder, unpredictability, and abject chaos. Few petty arguments grind the gears like replenishment, with this usually taking place over toilet rolls, ice cube trays, or water jugs. Try as they might to instill some sense of awareness into their partner; the replenishing partner…

What part of “time OFF” do these employers not understand? This technician had been working at the same HVAC company for 15 years and saw it expand from virtually nothing to a business that employed over 100 other technicians. Unfortunately, the dynamics within the company changed a bit after it was sold to a larger monopoly. Now, the technician's typical five weeks of vacation time were reduced to two weeks, and seniority didn't really matter at all anymore. Despite these changes, the technici…

'All four kids… agreed to not invite us to the baby shower': Stepparents cancel vacation plans for stepkids after paying for baby shower they weren't invited to

This family drama came to a boiling point after this stepmom finally said “no.” It's hard for parents to say no to what their kids want. After all, you want to give your precious children the world! Parents work so hard to put food on the table, keep their kids wearing nice clothes, drive them to sports practices, and more. Children have no idea how much effort their parents put into raising them, so they don't always say thank you. For most of us, though, we grow up and realize all the sacrifi…
