The woman’s in-laws were throwing a BBQ party, but she couldn’t attend because she had to work. Her husband hatched a plan to force her to the BBQ, but when she took his car, an argument erupted.
The Woman is a Nurse
She explained, “I have a very very busy schedule. It’s been absolutely crazy the past couple of years. My husband works an office job and because he’s a family-oriented type of guy, he always hangs out with his family.”
She Can’t Spend Much Time With Them
The woman’s busy schedule means that she doesn’t have much free time. She added, “His family lives on a ranch in the middle of literally nowhere. It’s a hassle to go there and due to my work nature, I don’t go to most of their functions, I do however make sure to attend the big ones.”
He Begged Her to Attend
The family planned a BBQ party and her husband was desperate for her to attend. She explained, “He wanted me to go with him so badly since all his brothers were bringing their wives and since they mocked him for coming alone in the past.”
She Couldn’t Go
The woman apologized that she couldn’t attend. Her husband suggested that she should swap shifts and even called her colleagues to beg them to cover the shift. She clarified, “I grew irritated and told him to stop it. He sulked for a whole day then dropped it.”
The Woman’s Car Tires Were Flat
The morning of the BBQ, she found that the tires of her car were out of air. Her husband offered to drive her to the hospital for work and she agreed.
Her Husband Had Lied
She explained, “I got ready and we got in the car but instead of taking me to the hospital, he drove me straight to his family’s ranch. I was dumbfounded and angry.” Her husband admitted that he had tricked her and that she needed to ‘suck it up’ and stay for the BBQ.
She Took His Car Keys
The woman was furious. She explained, “I waited and saw I still had time to make it to the hospital if I figured out a way to get there.” Her husband had forgotten to take his keys with him so she took them and ran back to the car, driving off.
Her Husband Called Her Manipulative
The husband kept calling her until she eventually turned her phone off while she was working. She explained, “I opened it and saw tons of angry messages from him berating me calling me horrible and a manipulator.”
He Yelled at Her
He yelled at her for bailing from the party and making him look bad in front of his family. She added, “He then calmed down and said that he now knows that work is more important to me and that he won’t ever trust me after I basically stole his car and ran with it.”
She Updated the Situation
“We’ve been on terrible terms since then. His family are also mad but I haven’t spoken to them about it yet nor clarified anything. I was desperate and worried that messing up my shift might cost me my job.”
Was She in the Wrong?
Was she wrong to take the car keys? Should she have handled the situation differently?
She Turned to the Internet for Advice
Most people were on her side. One user commented, “This was kidnapping. I get y’all are married, but he lied to you to kidnap you. You were taken somewhere against your will.”
Another Person Shared Their Perspective
“I mean, we are pretty sure he deflated your tires as part of the sneaky plan to get you to his family’s BBQ, right? And he’s calling you the manipulator? This doesn’t sound like a healthy relationship at all.”
Someone Else Added
“Not to mention how many lines he crossed calling her co-workers to cover her shift for a stupid BBQ. He’s so manipulative it’s insane!”
One Person Gave Advice
“He committed felonies by vandalizing your car and kidnapping you. You grabbed his keys and ran… because you knew if he saw you try to leave he wouldn’t let you go. Your husband and his family are horrible for even attempting that. You shouldn’t stay in this relationship.”
