Meet “Jim,” a 30-year-old man who has been married to his wife “Lexi,” 28, for 5 years. The couple has always had a strong relationship, but lately, an issue with Lexi’s co-workers has been causing drama.
Jim explains, “Lexi and I have always had a pretty solid relationship. We do have our issues just like any other couple, but we always work through it in the end. One reoccurring issue that has been causing some drama lately is Lexi’s co-workers.”
Her Co-workers Don’t Like Her
About six months ago, Lexi got a new job at a local supermarket. After three months, she started complaining about how her co-workers don’t like her and that she can’t stand them. She kept going on and on about how annoying they are and that her co-workers claim the reason why they don’t like her is because she’s a “constant downer.”
He Secretly Agrees
Jim admits that he secretly agrees with Lexi’s co-workers, saying, “I love Lexi, but one trait that has always been an issue is her pessimism. Lexi has a bad habit of thinking negatively, assuming the worst in other people, and generally has a defeated attitude. Basically a ‘Debby Downer.'”
Taking Matters Into His Own Hands
After months of hearing Lexi complain about her co-workers, Jim decided to take matters into his own hands. He had a day off from work and decided to go to Lexi’s workplace and observe her interactions with her co-workers.
Will She Prove Him Wrong?
Lexi knew that Jim would be there and insisted that she would prove to him that she’s being “unfairly targeted.” However, during several interactions, Lexi would endlessly complain about having to be at work, say nasty things about customers, and have very bad body language. She would roll her eyes and obnoxiously sigh when customers left her registry.
An Uncomfortable Watch
Jim was uncomfortable watching her behavior and he left after two hours. When Lexi came home from work, she immediately started complaining about her co-workers and how “cold they were towards her for no reason.”
“So, Do You Believe Me NOW?!”
Jim explains, “She felt vindicated and said, ‘So, do you believe me now? Now do you understand why I have to moan all the time? Maybe now you can understand how I feel.’ I explained to her that, based on what I observed, I actually agree with her co-workers.”
You SLIMY WEASEL!
Lexi exploded on Jim, calling him a “slimy weasel” for siding with her co-workers. She stormed out of the house and is currently staying with her Mom. Jim is trying his best to understand where she’s coming from but doesn’t know what else he can do.
He Sought Advice
Feeling lost and confused, Jim sought advice from Reddit’s popular forum. He wrote a post, asking if he was in the wrong for siding with Lexi’s co-workers and causing her to storm out. Many Reddit users commented on his post, with some saying that he wasn’t in the wrong for being honest with Lexi about her behavior. One user wrote, “As much as it sucks to hear, you were honest with her, and she needed to hear it. Maybe now she can work on improving her attitude and behavior at work.”
The Internet Responded
One person wrote, “I was wondering how did he even pull that off? was he waiting in their lunch room? pretending to be a shopper and following them along the aisles? or parked outside and assuming words were said by their body language? maybe a combo of all three? it sounds ridiculously hilarious.”
More Internet Responses
Another commenter said, “Imagine being one of her co-workers. You’re just trying to make it through your bad work day and some guy is just standing around the place watching you. Your wet mop of a co-worker is moaning about customers and you’re like, “That’s amazing, Lexi, but have you not noticed the weirdo staring at us this whole time?”
A Final Comment
This last person posted, “Also how close was he that he could repeatedly hear their conversations. Like he would have to be standing/lurking right by the register. I find it hard to believe nobody said anything to a strange man who was loitering for two hours.”
