You take away my TV and there’s gonna be Hell to pay!
I’ve never had to actually say that to someone but I can imagine those words coming out of my mouth if my beloved television was going bye-bye.
And that brings us to today’s “Am I the A**hole?” story.
Read on to see what happened!
AITA for taking away my wife’s car keys because she took away my TV?
“I have always spilt my income 50-50 with my wife.
She is religious (Baptist) but I am not. This has never been a problem for us, until this summer when I got a large raise at my job and I started buying things that she claimed were ‘greedy’ and ‘consumerist.’ I just told her I’m using my share of the income and I can buy what I want.
I thought that it was over but last weekend I finally got a Ps5 and bought a 65″ 8K QLED TV, in total it was about 5 grand. I was really excited to watch the super bowl with my friends on it (I’m hosting a little party this year) but my wife was furious, she thought it was a terrible decision and she didn’t care I used my own money.
When I came home from work on Monday (today’s Thursday) my wife said she took away my TV, sure enough it was gone. I looked everywhere for it but we have a modest 3 bedroom house, so who knows where it is now. I have been arguing with her for 4 days and she’s not budging, so this morning I finally snapped.
I took away her car keys and also removed her tires. I told her I’ll do the grocery shopping and our kids will be fine since they ride the bus, but I am not giving her that car back until she gets me my TV.
She is obviously furious but the super bowl is in 3 days and I’ll be d**ned if I’m letting her control what makes me happy.
And here’s what Reddit users had to say about this.
This reader said everyone in this story sucks and that these two people shouldn’t be married.
And this individual said these people are IMMATURE.
Another Reddit user had some ideas for how this man should have responded to his wife’s actions.
