'The sparkle of those eyes is igniting me': Out of control waitress hits one woman's husband, she gets her fired

Redditor u/throwraWaitress109 posted on the /r/AmItheA**hole subreddit, asking for advice on a situation that had come up with her and her husband after they went to a restaurant for a night out on his birthday. Throughout the evening and even during the meal, the waitress had been blatantly hitting on her husband, taking it to levels that made her very uncomfortable. When asked to stop, the waitress just smirked. So u/throwraWaitress109 went home and left a bad review, ultimately leading to th…

'The fallout wasn't over though': Amicable divorce goes south when ex-wife gets greedy, she ends up with less

Some people feel like everyone is out to screw them over, probably because they're out to screw everyone else over and assume everyone thinks the way that they do. As Ralph Waldo Emerson put it, “People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character." We project far more of ourselves than we realize when we give our opinion to others. If you think you Sometimes we

"I thought he overreacted': Wife gets husband in trouble at work after taking his work laptop for her Facebook fix, thinks she's done nothing wrong

It's 2023, and a lot of us are more addicted to social media, streaming services, or YouTube than we'd probably care to admit. We'll take anything and everything — all at once — as long as it saves us from having a single thought enter our head that will lead us to reflect on our own existence. The buzzing hum of constant stimulation provides us with the means necessary to fill the void left by whatever our lives used to be. Unfortunately, despite the constant urge to check the reason behind th…

'He looked at me with shock ': Jerk father-to-be gets owned by his own father after giving silent treatment to his wife over the gender of their child

'He looked at me with shock ': Jerk father-to-be gets owned by his own father after giving silent treatment to his wife over the gender of their child

It's ok to have feelings; they're only natural and not something that we can always control. Still, it's not ok for you to take those feelings out on other innocent people in your life who have done nothing wrong to cause the situation. That's the mistake that this father-to-be made when he decided to take out his “gender disappointment” on his pregnant wife. The two had been expecting their first child, but upon learning that the child was to be a girl, the father-to-be began giving his wife t…

'Why do I have to go?': Deadbeat dad-to-be skips pregnant wife's doctor's appointment for Fish n' Chips with the boys

I love Fish ‘n’ Chips. They're one of the main pillars of that make a continued existence on this planet worth it. There's nothing quite like a juicy flakey fillet battered in golden breading and deep-fried to succulent perfection. Serve that up with your choice of sauce and a side of chips, and you're talking some serious joy in edible form. Without Fish ‘n’ Chips, where would we be as a society?.. I'd rather not know the answer. Well, this deadbeat dad-to-be clearly shares the same passion fo…

AITA for Pausing My Husband’s Game bc He Wouldn’t Give Our Baby a Bath on Time?

Wife unplugs the internet when bad Dad won't log off to give the baby a bath, things escalate and HE demands a divorce

Some people have zero self-awareness and totally expect themselves to be in the right when everyone else would gladly tell them that they are, in fact, totally wrong. This husband probably was thinking this exact thing when he decided to ask his wife for a divorce after she pulled the plug on his gaming session over his unwillingness to help out with the couple's child. The wife made a post to Reddit's r/AmItheA**hole subreddit in which she appealed to readers of the online community to see whe…

AITA for leaving for a ski trip while my wife and kid were asleep?

'I packed up and left': Jerk husband ditches wife and sick daughter for a ski trip with his friends without telling them he's leaving, wonders if he's wrong

When you make the decision to get married (or make some other long-term commitment of trust and reciprocity to another person), you should probably consider that person's needs, thoughts, and advice. This goes double, if not triple, when you make the decision to (or otherwise) have children. These people come first and foremost in your life, before any fun you might want to have with your friends and, certainly, before a ski trip. Imagine the cruel audacity to straight up ditch your wife and si…

AITA for going against my wifes wishes when purchasing our first home?

Insane guy purchases entire house without his real estate agent wife's knowledge, wonders if he's wrong

When you're in a committed long-term relationship, it's always advisable to make large, life-changing decisions as a team: This is something we would expect would go without needing to be said. Alas, wherever there are people making decisions, there is always going to be one person making one so utterly stupid you might not have even considered it to be an option in the first place. Take this idiot husband, for example; he thought it would be a clever idea to purchase a house without his real e…

AITA for telling my parents I won't attend their christmas celebration until they send my husband a separate invitation?.

Update: 'Parents have disinvited me': Immature husband throws a fit when in-laws don't send him his own invitation to Christmas, gets couple disinvited

The proverbial phrase “Don't look a gift horse in the mouth” feels incredibly relevant when discussing invitations to Christmas celebrations — what with the whole gift-giving thing and all. Still, one might consider repurposing this into something that directly fits the occasion. I'm thinking something here along the lines of “Don't interpret an invitation on the recipient line.” — or something of that nature. Like, your name's already on the invitation dude. It's not normal to send couples mul…

Guy makes calculated purchase for wife's expensive smart watch, buys her a color she doesn't wear

There's something to be said for trying — but the last thing you want to do with a half-baked gesture is expose how little you listen to (or care) about your partner's wants and wishes. It doesn't take that much time or great observational skills to take note of the things that your partner enjoys; one might hope that, through general time spent together, it's something you'd just naturally and innately come to know. I say this despite myself having the observational skills of a deaf bat and th…

"About 6 months into our marriage she told me she had been having car trouble and needed about $2K for the repair. This struck me as a bit odd… [...]  One evening after she went to sleep I went and had a look at the part of the car she had said was faulty. No issue. This set off alarms."

Guy Turns the Tables After Financing His Cheating Wife and Her Grifting Boyfriend

This is just the marriage/grifter plot of Scorsese's Casino, right? Like, tell me this isn't some adaptive creative writing piece that has just repacked the movie into a Reddit thread. The story was shared to Reddit's r/ProRevenge subreddit by Reddit user u/OfPearlsandSwine, who shared their story to the popular sub in a thread titled “Topsy Turvy". The thread, which earned nearly 3k upvotes, makes for an entertaining read but drew a lot of criticism from suspicious commenters. “I'm a lawyer bu…

Woman Refuses to Kiss Husband's Open Wound, He Thinks She's the Crazy One

This week, Reddit user u/NatalieFox309 has turned to the ever-popular r/AmItheA**hole subreddit in a cry for help from those with outward perspectives on her absurd situation. She explains that whenever her 9-year-old son hurts himself, she is quick to offer a kiss to the injured area in order to comfort him and ease his reaction to the pain. She is quick to clarify that she does not kiss the open wound directly. She just delivers a healing peck in the wound's general vicinity. Enter stage righ…
