John and Sarah’s relationship is tested when Sarah surprises him with a meal at his workplace, causing his co-workers to bully and embarrass him, leading to a heated argument.
He Received a Surprise
Meet John, a 33-year-old man who recently got hired at a large company in the south, where he and his wife, Sarah, moved months ago. Sarah was excited for John’s new job and talked about preparing a surprise for him, which got him excited, but he didn’t know what it was until she showed up at his workplace 2 days ago with a meal she said she prepared specifically for him since it’s his favorite. Apparently, this was her surprise.
He Got Teased
John was a little upset that she brought it to his workplace. His co-workers, who are vicious, brutally honest, and sarcastic, got involved and kept teasing him about the meal. One of them, Austin, joked about how “mommy” is so supportive by bringing food to his workplace. John felt like garbage as Austin and other co-workers kept laughing at him.
The Insults Kept Coming
The next day, John went to work, and Austin kept making jokes about him, saying things like “Is mommy going to bring lunch today as well?” and “When is mommy coming to change your diaper?” and some other stuff. One of them, who he didn’t know well, said, “Oh, you guys, I can still smell the meal (John’s name)’s mom brought yesterday. She’s such a great cook, bless her heart!” And the infuriating giggles kept on.
He Blew Up
John felt so awful that he went home and just blew up at Sarah, telling her she flat-out embarrassed him and just torpedoed any prestige and respect he had among his co-workers. He told her what Austin and others have been doing and asked if she was happy for giving them ammo to come at him like that.
She Called him Selfish
Sarah argued that she was just trying to do something nice for him and didn’t care about what people might say, but he was a selfish jerk who only cares about what others think rather than how she felt by his constant berating over a meal she put effort, money, and time to make and bring to him.
The argument escalated after he suggested that she could’ve waited until he got home to surprise him with this meal instead of showing up while he was working, which made him seem unprofessional.
She Felt Blamed
She said she came during lunch break, but he was still working during lunch break. She said at this point he clearly finds it easier to blame her than stand up for himself against those childish bullies.
He Was Considered Ungrateful
He said he didn’t appreciate what she said, but she replied that he should be grateful she cared enough to bring him a home-cooked meal, then thanked him for showing her it’s not worth wasting any more of her time cooking for him after this.
He Asked Her Not To Blame Him
John told her to stop blaming him for something she caused and asked her to admit that maybe she should’ve consulted him before bringing the meal over so he could avoid being the butt of every joke his co-workers told. Sarah didn’t take kindly to this and accused him of being ungrateful and not appreciating her efforts to do something nice for him.
He Walked Out
John felt like Sarah wasn’t listening to how her behavior caused him an issue at work and was more concerned about her own feelings than his. He was floored by what she said when she told him to man up and either report them or quit, then. He had to walk out because he couldn’t take any more of this and felt like she wasn’t being supportive.
Straight to the Internet
Feeling so frustrated over the situation and how he felt it could have been easily avoided, John decided to go on the internet and ask for advice from a popular forum.
The Internet Responds
One person puts, “Your wife is an absolute sweetheart. Your colleagues are bullying you, and bullying your wife in return isn’t going to fix anything.”
A Further Comments

I am so lucky to have a wife who will go out of her way for me like this!”
A final person simply writes, “He’s not guying right, he’s supposed to be ripping on them back.”
