The internet provided support for a pregnant woman whose husband allegedly demanded her to move his luggage through the airport.
Posted in reddit“Am I The A**hole” forum (AITA) on Thursday under the username u/overreaction536435, The woman said She was “humiliated” by her husband’s behaviour, and then forced him to find a way to get him home.
The post received more than 9,600 votes and more than 1,500 comments from Redditors who criticized the husband’s “red flag” behavior and encouraged the woman to file for divorce.
The woman said in her post that she was picking up her husband from the airport after a business trip when the interaction happened.
“The second time he saw me he left his two big bags and started walking,” the woman wrote. I tried to get him to stop but he asked me to bring the bags and follow him.”
She told her husband that the bags were “too heavy” to carry, but he complained that he was “too tired” to carry them and tried to keep walking. When the woman refused to follow him, he told her she was “annoying”.
“I told him to assign someone to carry his bags for him, and he replied: I already have one and it’s you” … Then [he] She kept walking and ignoring me.”
Annoyed, she dropped his luggage, walked “right in front of him”, got into her car and drove home.
“He came home by taxi, but he was mad at me for leaving him at the airport just because he asked for my help. He also said I embarrassed him, made a scene and overreacted,” the woman concluded. “Etta?”
According to Million Mile SecretsBaggage carts are available for rent at most airports for a small fee.
“If you check your luggage and need an airport trolley at your destination, you can find airport luggage trolleys near the ticket counters and at the baggage claim center. However, you will have to pay up to $5 or more for the shopping cart,” the site explained. “Shopping carts are usually free at airports outside the US, but US airports charge a fee.”
However, the site said there are ways to get it for free.
“Your checked bags will take several minutes to get off the plane. So instead of waiting at baggage claim and paying for a baggage cart, you can try to get one for free,” the site said. “You can usually go out to the pier or to the departures section of the airport and you will find empty carriages waiting to be brought back.”
With that in mind, commenters couldn’t understand why your husband/overreaction 536435 would bring only a luggage cart. Redditors reassured the woman that she was not overreacting and criticized her husband for treating her like a “pack mule.”
“NTA .” [not the a**hole]. What is the actual effect? He expects you, his pregnant wife, to carry his bags for him when he sits on a plane for 4 hours. four hours? What a difficult life for him. It is very easy to get a trolley to carry the bags, but he will not listen to you but ask you to carry his bags like a servant. You are his pregnant wife, not his mule! “
“I was going to leave him in general, not just at the airport… Why in the world did he feel that you, his pregnant wife, were obligated to carry his luggage?” sh/ha13ra asked. “This is not normal behaviour. I don’t want to judge just one story, but this incident screams [red] media “.
u/VxGB111 wrote “NTA…seriously, what’s dropping his bags on his girl like she’s a servant. It’s time for a divorce.”
Redditor u/anaisaknits added: “Red flags are everywhere…OP [original poster] He needs to leave and leave now.”
