Rachel, a tenant in a shared house with her boyfriend and his best friend, Eric, faces accusations from Eric’s girlfriend, Amanda, about doing things for “her man,” including not using Amanda’s Disney+ account on their TV and flirting with Eric, leading to tension in the house.
A Good Set-Up
In their thirties, a woman named Rachel rented a room in a house with her boyfriend, Jake, and his best friend, Eric, where they had lived since college. Eric had a girlfriend named Amanda, who had been staying over for around six months.
May the Force be With You
They were all Star Wars fans and had decided to binge-watch some episodes and order pizza. Amanda wanted to use her Disney+ account, but Rachel’s account was already logged into the TV in the living room.
They got their pizza, snacks, wine, and beer, and Rachel left her phone in her bedroom because she liked to unplug after work. She didn’t want to be disturbed whilst having an epic movie night with her friends.
Accusations Via Text
After the movie night, Rachel went to check her phone before bed and found pages of text from Amanda accusing her of doing things for “her man,” including not using Amanda’s Disney+ account on their TV and cooking or grabbing things for him.
Screenshots Never Lie
The list went on, and Amanda even accused Rachel of flirting with Eric. Rachel found the text messages to be ridiculous and showed them to Jake before they went to sleep. Jake thought that Eric needed to see the texts, so Rachel screenshot page after page of the messages that Amanda had sent while they watched the New Trilogy and sent the screenshots to Eric.
Is She Insecure?
Rachel heard Eric and Amanda arguing, and Amanda slammed the door when she left at around 3 am. The next day, Rachel told her co-worker about the incident, and some thought that she was being petty by sharing Amanda’s texts with her boyfriend. They believed that Amanda had insecurities that she needed to work through, and Rachel had bullied her by sharing the messages.
A Shocking Reaction
Rachel was taken aback by her co-workers’ reactions and felt that she had done nothing wrong. She had simply shared the messages with her boyfriend and his best friend, who was Amanda’s boyfriend.
She Had the Right to Defend
Rachel felt that Amanda’s accusations were unfounded and that she had every right to defend herself. She didn’t want to cause any tension in the house, but she also didn’t want to be accused of something she hadn’t done.
The Internet Responded
This person commented and said this, “You definitely weren’t petty. She sent you a long ridiculous message, an you and your bf thought this was something Eric needed to see. She definitely has insecurities, but she went about that soo badly to send some nonsense like that. It wasn’t a bullying situation, I’d be wary of those co-workers if that’s truly their opinion.”
More Internet Responses
Another commenter wrote, “It’s not bullying, it’s providing him relevant information about his partner he wouldn’t have had. If he chooses to change the relationship based on it, it’s because of her actions, not you giving him a clearer picture of who she really is.”
A Final Comment
This last person wrote this opinion, “Co-workers are definitely wrong on this one. The GF may need a counselor for her insecurities, but how she acted on them was wrong and aggressive and not only does OP not have to put up with that, but her roommate has a right to know she is being bullied/attacked/getting ultimatums in this weird and jealous way.”
