A woman and her boyfriend invited another couple, who had recently had a new child, over for dinner. But when the husband made a mean comment about the new mother, she stood up to her friend leading to a tense situation.
They Had A Dinner Party
The woman explained, “My best friend Jenny (23 years old) recently became a new mom to a baby boy with her husband Tom (25 years old). Last weekend, they came over to my flat for dinner, and it was the first time my boyfriend and I got to meet their baby.”
She Had A Hot Tub
The woman’s flat had a balcony with a hot tub, which was a Christmas gift from her parents the previous year.
They Got Changed
The woman’s boyfriend didn’t go in the hot tub and instead held the baby while the three women prepared to take a dip. Jenny was the last to change and emerged from the bathroom wearing a bikini.
Jenny’s Boyfriend Made A Hurtful Remark
The woman thought Jenny looked incredible, exuding happiness and radiance. However, Tom chuckled and made a comment about Jenny needing to shed some weight before regaining her pre-pregnancy attractiveness.
Jenny Seemed Hurt By The Remark
Although Jenny remained silent, her smile disappeared, and she seemed visibly uncomfortable.
It Was A Sensitive Topic
In previous conversations, Jenny had confided in the woman about the challenges she faced with weight gain during her pregnancy, so she found Tom’s remark quite insensitive.
The Woman Stood Up For Her Friend
The woman’s anger surged as she thought about what Tom might be saying to Jenny privately if he felt comfortable making such remarks in public. So, she said “She just had a baby. What’s your excuse?”
Tom Became Angry
She found it ironic that Tom, with a substantial beer belly and double chin, would joke about a new mother’s weight. Jenny chuckled at her remark but Tom became defensive, insisting that she should learn to take a joke before storming off to the hot tub.
And Confronted The Woman
As they prepared to leave, Tom pulled her aside and told her to mind her own business.
Was The Woman Right?
Reflecting on the situation, the woman wondered if her reaction had been uncalled for. Her boyfriend, too, suggested that perhaps she shouldn’t have responded at all, as it wasn’t her place to intervene.
The Internet Responded
One person said, “Insulting your partner in front of other people deserves a calling out.”
Another Person Commented
“You weren’t just sticking up for your friend, you personally objected to his statement. He made it your business when he said it in front of you. As someone who used to be the meek type who wouldn’t stick up for themselves, thank you. The world would be a better place if more people shot down jerks’ comments in public.”
