One morning, a man and his wife had a surprise visit to their home from the man’s mother. This would have been fine, except they had no idea that she would be leaving the property disgusted and ashamed of her son’s wife.
A Messy House
During the visit, it was made apparent that upon entering, the man’s mother was displeased with the state of the house. She considered it to be messy and cluttered.
The mother had pointed out her disgust to the man’s wife during the visit. She was furious with this comment, especially considering her visit was unexpected, and even threatened to kick the woman out of her house.
A Critical Phone Call
After the visit, the mother made a phone call to her son. “She went on a long rant about my wife having an attitude, calling her a ‘gypsy’ for keeping a house that was apparently filthy and smelled bad”.
A Passive Response
Rather than engaging in an argument during the call, the man chose to nod and respond with non-committal sounds. He initially perceived the situation as not particularly significant, believing it would blow over.
An Unsettled Homecoming
Upon returning home, the man’s wife initiated an argument about his mother’s visit and the phone call she had just been told about. She expressed her distress over what she considered verbal abuse and requested his opinion on the matter.
The man explained how he responded: “I told her to just ignore her ’cause she’s like this with my brother’s wife too. She got upset and said that no, she doesn’t have to ignore her and that my mom had one chance to apologize or she’s no longer welcome here.”
A Debate Over Housecleaning
The man defended his mother: “I said that was an overreaction because for one, she knows how much of a clean freak mom is, and two, she should’ve tidied up the house if she didn’t want any negative comments from mom or any other guest for that matter.”
The Disagreement Intensifies
The woman could not believe that her husband was not supporting her, considering that he was willing to tolerate his mother’s offensive behavior. The man tried to compromise, stating that both parties bore some responsibility for the situation.
An Outrageous Statement
To make matters worse, the man’s wife was even more furious about his comments regarding her cleaning. She already took on overwhelming responsibilities including childcare and cooking, and it wasn’t fair for him to expect her to keep the house spotless on top of all these chores.
Caught In The Middle
The man became frustrated, as he felt that he was being blamed by both parties for each other’s behaviors. He felt that he hadn’t done anything wrong, but could understand why both his mother and his wife were angry.
In Need Of Guidance
The man headed online, posting his conundrum in the hope that he would receive some validation from online friends. However, his friends were not willing to stick up for him this time. “Your mum used racist slurs against your wife in front of your children”, one person accused. “Why don’t YOU tidy up before your mother comes over?”
He Was Not Popular
The man was berated by his online pals. “You suck for so many reasons:”, one reader began. “Allowing your mother to verbally abuse your wife; allowing your abusive mother to continue; making excuses; victim blaming; being unsupportive; gaslighting your wife by telling her emotions/feelings are exaggerated”.
Grab The Popcorn
Contrary to his hopes, the man could not find a shred of sympathy within the comments section. In fact, many people seemed to be enjoying the man’s grilling. “Lol I’m sitting back with popcorn for this one”, laughed one commenter. “Silly man, putting something like this on the Internet.”
