A 21-year-old woman was six months pregnant, which came as an unexpected surprise. Due to the complexity of her pregnancy, her emotions were running wild, unexpectedly leading to a significant argument over a burger.
Her Boyfriend’s Living Situation
The woman’s boyfriend, who was 28 years old, had recently moved in with her during her pregnancy. However, this was not an act of support, but of need, as he had recently had to move out from his friend’s house.
Craving a Burger
The woman had been dealing with pregnancy cravings, and on this particular day, there was only one thing on her mind. “There’s a burger place I’d been craving, and they shut at a certain time”, she explained.
Agreement on Ordering
The woman was out of the house at the time, so she called her boyfriend to confess her immense burger craving. Happy to help, the man agreed to order for his girlfriend in time for her return.
A Specific Order
The woman was vegetarian, and due to the disappointing nature of other veggie burgers, her options were limited. She told her boyfriend exactly what she was craving and from where he should purchase it.
A Missed Opportunity
The woman arrived home just twenty minutes before the burger place’s closing time, excited to satisfy her craving. However, to her disappointment, her boyfriend hadn’t placed the order by the time she got back. Her cravings gave way to immense disappointment.
It Got Worse
“I started crying because I’d been looking forward to it all week… all I wanted was a veggie burger and a hot shower”, the woman recounted. “I couldn’t even have a shower since he used the last of the hot water.”
In the midst of her emotional turmoil, the woman’s boyfriend didn’t think to apologize, instead suggesting they ordered from Burger King instead. This option didn’t appeal to her, and she expressed her disappointment. The situation escalated as they got into an argument.
Comparing Challenging Days
The argument shifted to a comparison of their respective days. The woman explained that she was exhausted from juggling the responsibilities of two jobs, not to mention the demands of her pregnancy. Her boyfriend’s day on the other hand was notably shorter, although he claimed to be exhausted from non-stop job hunting.
The Request to Leave
Furious at her boyfriend comparing his ‘difficulties’ to her own, the woman asked him to leave. He had nowhere else to go, so he had no choice but to sleep in his car.
The man protested, suggesting that his girlfriend was overreacting, potentially due to the effects of her pregnancy. He was upset that she was not considering his feelings and emphasized that he felt overwhelmed by the situation.
Advice From Friends
Seeking an outside perspective on the matter, the woman turned to her friends. They expressed the view that she might have acted insensitively, considering her boyfriend might be in over his head. After all, the argument had led to him spending the night in his car, and it was all because of a veggie burger.
As the woman’s cravings subsided, she began to realize the absurdity of the situation. She confessed her actions online, asking a forum whether they felt she had acted out of line. Initially, she received some criticism: “I think you’re in the wrong here for making him sleep in the car over a burger… that seems like an overreaction”, stated one reader.
He Was a Freeloader
However, opinions quickly shifted when one commenter pointed out an interesting observation: “When you said he moved in, I assumed that was to help you with your pregnancy”, they wrote. “Apparently not the case at all – that changes everything… he’s a selfish freeloader.”
That Changed Everything
Realizing that the boyfriend was only living with his girlfriend out of necessity, comments criticizing the man came flooding in. “Why are you bringing this man into the fold?”, questioned one reader. “He’s 28 without a job and you’ve got a baby coming in 2 months… it may have been a hormone response, but things won’t get better if he isn’t contributing to your life.”
