Have you ever left someone behind on a road trip?
I personally have not, but there have been times when I’ve been driving with certain people that I wanted to leave in the desert…or in the middle of a corn field…
But I decided to just grin and bear it until I got home. Ugh!
But this woman did what some of us dream about and left her boyfriend and his daughter at a rental place in another state.
Did she go too far?
AITA for dropping him and his daughter off at a rental car place states away from home?
“Long story short: I (27f) started seeing 44 yo “Dave” 3 years ago. I have 2 sons, 9 and 6. He has 1 daughter “Ann”, 17.
I booked a road trip for me and my sons roughly 3 months ago. A road trip consisting of roughly 26 hours worth of driving with stops in between. This is the first time I’ve ever been financially able to do much of anything with my children so I went all out. Planned to stop at every place they had ever asked me to go, basically. I was beyond excited to surprise them with this trip. We got home 4 nights ago.
A week before leaving my Dave decides he wants to go with me and bring Ann as a “bonding” experience. We do not live together and Ann has never liked me because I’m “boring”. She has said this to my face. So Dave thinks it will be good. I didn’t really want either of them to go but thought what the hell, why not. This could be good for us.
Boy was I f**king wrong. From the moment Ann got in to my vehicle she started complaining about absolutely everything. It was too crowded, too loud, we were taking too many stops, the boys were “too annoying” and “need to quiet the f**k down and chill out”.
We get a hotel 9 hours in (PA). Its around 3pm at this point. Dave asks if he can take a drive with Ann because she was getting irritated with the kids. I told him he could if he makes it quick because I needed to go get dinner supplies. 3 hours later he shows back up. Him and Ann went out to eat. So I make a comment saying “you didn’t think we wanted to eat too?” And Ann snaps back with “I dont think we asked.”
After comments like this for days I finally snapped. My body are now saying they just want to go home because several times Dave told my kids to be quiet because of his kids comfortability. At this point I haven’t done anything with my kids because the queen would have a fit if we pulled off anywhere AND Dave at this point basically refused to let me drive despite me arguing. IN MY CAR.
So I snapped, told him to pull the f**k over. When he finally does, I drive to the nearest car rental and tell them to get the f**k out of my car. Dave and Ann both start flipping out. Ann saying she isn’t going to get in a car that has “bed bugs”. Dave saying he didn’t want to take separate vehicles and didn’t have enough money for a rental because the queen spent over $1500 in 4 days.
So I say “I dont believe I f**king asked.” And take off. They were close to 800 miles from home. It took them 4 days to get home due to lack of money and needing to borrow. I’m being told I’m a selfish c**t.
