The couple had been planning to go to a baseball game, but when it was time to leave, the wife still wasn’t ready. The husband decided to leave without her to teach her a lesson.
The Couple Had Tickets for a Baseball Game
The man explained, “For the past week, my wife and I had been anticipating a baseball game for which we had purchased tickets. We like baseball, but we don’t attend many games, so traveling into the city to see games is a rare treat.”
They Had to Leave By 6 pm
They planned to drive to the game and would have to find parking. The game started at 7 pm, and they live 45 minutes from the stadium. The man told his wife that they had to be ready and in the car by 6 pm.
His Wife is an Avid Gamer
The man explained, “She was engrossed in her latest video game when the clock struck 5:45 pm. She has struggled to plan in the past, and I get tired of reminding her that she needs to budget time to get ready. It’s as if she has no concept of time at all, similar to a young child.”
He Decided to Teach Her a Lesson
The man was ready to leave at 6 pm and his wife was in the bathroom. He stated, “I saw this as an opportunity to teach her personal responsibility, so I simply left the house without saying a word, got in the car, and started driving to the game.”
The Wife Was Furious
It took a few minutes for the wife to realize what he had done. When she did, she called him and was furious. He added, “She said that it was a completely unacceptable move for me to leave without telling her and that she now had no way to get to the game without paying for parking.”
The Husband Was Tired of Waiting
He told her that he got tired of constantly waiting for her and that she should plan better next time if she didn’t want to get left behind. He added, “I also reminded her that I had told her that morning when I expected her to be ready to leave.” She was still upset with him and hung up angrily.
She Didn’t Show up to the Game
He explained, “She never showed up to the stadium, and I didn’t hear from her the whole game.” When he got home, there was a note on the door explaining that he should sleep on the couch.
The Man Shared His Opinion
“If I had waited for her, I would have missed the first pitch. I made my expectations clear, and she couldn’t be bothered to meet them. I feel like she should be apologizing to me.”
He Clarified the Situation
He also added, “I think it’s completely insane that a grown woman is unable to budget her time, and I’m starting to suspect that she is doing this on purpose because she’s a narcissist who expects me to accommodate her. After all, she’s not a dumb woman.”
Was He in the Wrong?
Was he wrong to leave without her? Should he have handled the situation differently? It is worth noting that many people with ADHD struggle with time management and suffer from ‘time blindness’, so maybe the husband should consider if his wife needs support in getting a diagnosis before ‘punishing’ her.
He Turned to The Internet for Support
Many shared the same opinion. One person said, “I don’t blame him for being upset about her being late all the time, that would bother me too. But a baseball game is not the kind of event where you HAVE to be there right as it starts.”
Another Person Commented
“I wouldn’t have blamed you for leaving, but you should have told her. You know your wife, you knew she wouldn’t be ready, and you left on purpose to “punish” her.”
Someone Had a Different View
“She simply wasn’t interested enough in the game, or spending time with you, or in being ready to leave on time, or she would have put the effort, focus, and attention to do so. Unless someone has lived with a person who has to continually be reminded or who is constantly late and constantly makes you late, they cannot fully appreciate how disrespectful of you and your time it is, and how frustrating it is.”
