Party crasher alert!

But did he act like an a**hole?
Read his story below and let us know what you think.
AITA for crashing my wife’s birthday party and taking her home?
“My wife turned 30 this week. I’m 26M. We’ve always had a strong relationship and I love her so much.
My wife has a best friend from childhood Jimmy 28M. I didn’t know him that well but this year we’ve gotten to know each other and have gotten close. He’s my best bud and like an older brother to me in a lot of ways.
My wife goes all out for my birthday parties and I love them. She’s more of a stoic introvert so I thought it would be nice to throw her a surprise 30th birthday with just her and me and make it a special event. I wanted to make her a gift she would love.
Jimmy’s an incredible artist and for the past two months I’ve been taking lessons from them. My wife was curious why I was spending so much time away from home with Jimmy but I made vague excuses because I couldn’t tell her I was making a gift for her. She’s made a couple comments but never seemed upset.
I told her a week before her birthday that I had made plans with Jimmy. I have a job with flexible hours so it’s not uncommon for me to do it. She wasn’t upset or anything. When her birthday came, it was all I could do not to say anything. When she left for work, I put my plan in action. I decorated the place. I brought out the cake. I learned from youtube and stored it at our friend’s house. I got a dozen bouquets of flowers. I got her a few other gifts too.
She was supposed to come home at 5:30 but she didn’t. I waited hours for her but she didn’t come home. I called Jimmy and he said he hadn’t seen her. I called her and she didn’t pick up. I checked her location and she was at a restaurant. I went to the restaurant and she was there with her friends. They were eating a birthday cake and she had presents. I never met these friends of hers before. I think they’re from her work.
She seemed sad. She wasn’t smiling or energetic. I wanted to take her home and show her my gift so she would be happy. I came over to her and told her she had to come home. We grabbed her things and left. On the uber back, she didn’t say anything. At home she started crying.
She has been sleeping on the couch and she avoids me. My wife hasn’t talked to Jimmy either. I told my mom and she called me an asshole. I don’t know why. AITA?”
Here’s what Reddit users had to say.
One reader said this guy is an a**hole and he really blew it in this situation.
Another Reddit user said the way this guy started off his post raised a big red flag for her.
And another individual said he should’ve just been honest about what he was up to from the beginning.
