A man had been happily married to his wife for 15 years, and he had a serious thing for sports cars. He finally achieved his life goal of owning one, but he would soon discover that this would give way to more problems than he could have anticipated. Here’s what happened:
A Shared Interest
The man adored his sports car, and over his years of owning it, it would become a symbol of his hard work and dedication. His wife also had great adoration for the car, and this would unfortunately be the start of the man’s problems.
Wife’s Frequent Borrowing
For the past six months, John’s wife had been regularly borrowing his cherished sports car for her errands and trips. It became her go-to vehicle whenever she needed to get somewhere.
Minor Damage and Repair
About two months ago, an unfortunate incident occurred. “She damaged my sports car when borrowing it about 2 months ago”, the man lamented. “Thankfully, it was only a minor dent, and I was able to fix it for not too much money at a local shop.”
A Costly Reoccurrence
Unfortunately, this would not be the last of the man’s woes. “Last week, she managed to damage it again and this time we’re going to have to order a part which will come to somewhere between $2000 and $3000”, he explained.
A Difficult Decision
The man had to confront a difficult decision. The financial burden of repairing his beloved sports car for a second time was one aspect. However, he also worried about the car’s resale value, which could be significantly affected if it underwent numerous repairs.
With these concerns in mind, the man made a tough call. He informed his wife that she would no longer be allowed to drive his sports car.
His Wife’s Tears
The man’s wife was very upset to hear the man’s decision, but thankfully, he had an idea: “I told her that she should get her own car, which would be perfect for when she wants to go to the city to do shopping.”
Navigating The Argument
Unfortunately, the woman was not pleased with her husband’s suggestion. “It actually blew into a pretty big fight, and even though I didn’t budge and we kinda sorted it out, I still feel like she is angry at me”, he continued.
The man grappled with the consequences of his decision and the potential strain it had placed on his marriage. His wife appeared to find it difficult to forgive the man for not trusting her with his car, but he still felt that he had made the right call, because he had worked hard all his life for the car, and it wasn’t fair for her to be damaging it all the time.
Plenty Of Cash
However, there was one more thing that justified the man’s decision. “She makes over $100k a year (she makes a bit more than I do), and could go and buy a car today if she wanted to”, he explained. “The problem is just the fact that I don’t let her drive MY car which is upsetting her”.
The man headed online to give his side of the story, asking the internet whether they thought he had acted unreasonably. However, he was relieved to find everyone backing him up. “She can just go and pick out a new car”, someone suggested. “I’m not sure why she thinks it’s okay to damage someone’s property and get mad when she’s not welcome to use it again.”
His Prized Possession
Many people pointed out that this wasn’t just any car, but a sports car that the man had strived to earn. “You worked hard to get that car and you’re passionate about it, yet she damaged it twice”, another reader pointed out. “If she wants to drive, she should get a regular car, simple”.
An Audacious Attitude
Everyone agreed that the man’s wife was acting audacious. “No way are you in the wrong here, you let the first one go and then she didn’t learn her lesson”, one commenter stated. “The audacity of your wife to think she should still be trusted in driving it!”
