John’s decision to deny his relationship with his fiancée, Sarah, during a difficult situation at the airport caused a rift between them and led him to question if he was in the wrong for prioritizing his job over their relationship.
Take a Small Backpack
John and his fiancée, Sarah, were returning from a vacation when they encountered an issue with their carry-on bags at the airport. John had advised Sarah to only bring a small backpack with essentials in case they didn’t get their checked bags.
She Ignored his Advice
However, Sarah chose to bring a full-size bag that barely fit the standards of carry-on, hoping to avoid checking her bag. Unfortunately, the airline worker was not having it, and an argument ensued.
She Ran Onto the Plane!
John managed to get through baggage check with his small backpack, but he could hear the argument from the boarding tunnel. He was about to go back and try to smooth it out when Sarah rushed past him and boarded the plane. John assumed that the airline worker had given in and let her on. However, that was not the case.
Once they were on the plane, John settled into his seat and tried to take a nap. However, he was soon awakened by the airline worker and a cop who was demanding that Sarah get off the plane. Sarah tried to plead and cry, but they were not having it. The cop asked if they were together, and in a moment of panic and self-preservation, John blurted out, “NO!” shaking his head emphatically.
He’d Given His Word
Sarah was devastated and humiliated as she was escorted off the plane. John felt guilty but also relieved that he wasn’t kicked off the plane as well. He knew that his actions had hurt Sarah, but he also had a job to do, and he had given his word to his boss and co-workers that he would be back on schedule for a time-sensitive project.
She Was Furious
When Sarah eventually got home, John was there to pick her up. However, she was furious with him and accused him of being selfish and cowardly. John’s friends and family also criticized him for his actions, causing a divide among them.
Was He the Jerk?
John turned to Reddit to ask if he was the jerk for denying his relationship with Sarah. Many people on Reddit criticized John for his actions, calling him insensitive and thoughtless. One user wrote, “You left your fiancée stranded and humiliated just to save your own skin. That’s the definition of being a jerk.”
Others pointed out that John’s actions could have serious consequences for his relationship with Sarah, and that he should have stood by her during the ordeal. One user commented, “You should have supported your fiancée, even if it meant getting kicked off the plane with her. Your relationship should be more important than a project at work.”
Other People Supported John
This person commented, “Get out while you still can. This is how she’ll be forever. She’ll never learn from this experience.”
More Internet Comments
Another commenter posted, “I’d marry the one who followed the rules and who lied because he needed to get back on time because he had responsibilities. I wouldn’t marry an entitled person who thought the rules didn’t apply to her. The last time I flew with my sister, her bag was too big because it was a crowded flight. Know what she did? She acted like a mature woman and checked her bag. It’s not that hard.”
A Final Comment
This last person wrote, “She threw a tantrum for breaking a rule, and airlines are pretty specific about what bag size is considered a carry-on and what items are allowed. Then she escalated things to the point she needed to be escorted off the plane by the police, which most likely delayed the flight. A grown woman shouldn’t be acting like this. It’s her fault for choosing to try to pass luggage as a carry-on and not listening to OP beforehand.”
