A woman lived in a shared student house with three roommates: two girls and one guy, with whom she shared a good friendship. The friends all trusted each other and allowed one another to borrow their belongings, but the woman was soon to take liberties that her roommates would find controversial.
The Spring Break Dilemma
During spring break, the woman was uncertain about her plans. It was tradition to head away on a vacation for spring break, but since she didn’t own a car, her options were limited.
A Generous Offer
One of the woman’s roommates offered a generous solution. He was heading home to visit his family and suggested that the woman borrow his car for her spring break activities with friends.
An Appreciated Gesture
The woman expressed immense appreciation for this gesture: “I thought that was super nice, especially as his car was a Mercedes SUV”.
A Cross-Country Adventure
Taking her friend up on his offer, the woman and her best friends embarked on a thrilling road trip to Las Vegas all the way from Maryland, covering a substantial distance. The journey was filled with excitement and memorable moments.
The Unexpected Outburst
Upon her return, the woman recounted her adventurous trip to her roommate. However, instead of the expected positive response, he reacted with an outburst.
The Man’s Anger
“He FREAKED OUT”, the woman remembered. “He said that he assumed we were just gonna drive to the beach or something, like just a few hours away, not almost to the west coast.”
The woman defended her actions, explaining that her friend had never mentioned any limitations regarding distance when lending her the car. She felt it was unfair for him to be angry at her for something that had not been communicated clearly.
In the aftermath of this disagreement, tension began to brew in their shared living space. The woman and her friend found themselves locked in a series of disputes, each steadfast in their own perspective.
The Roommate Consensus
Amidst the growing tension, the other two roommates weighed in on the situation. They believed that the woman should extend an apology to the man to ease the discord within the house. They felt that maintaining a peaceful living environment was a priority.
The Woman’s Stance
The woman, however, remained resolute in her belief that she had not done anything wrong. She contended that without explicit boundaries set by the man, she had no reason to assume any restrictions on the use of the car.
A Community Verdict
The woman was a member of an online community, where she decided to share her woes, seeking sympathy and validation. However, the reality of the comments she received couldn’t be further from validation. “Dude lent you his car yet it never crossed your mind to ask him if he was cool with you driving thousands of miles across the country?!”, one reader questioned.
She Took Advantage
Almost everyone believed that the woman had crossed a major line. “You totally took advantage of someone’s kindness”, another commenter wrote. “You weren’t entitled to upgrade your friend’s kindness and put wear and tear on his car just because it fits with your whim of driving to Las Vegas.”
A Scary Attitude
The woman had made it clear in her post that she felt no remorse for her actions, due to her roommate not making his boundaries explicit. Many people thought this was outrageous: “It scares me that you honestly don’t see how what you did was wrong”, one person claimed.
