It can be hard to get away from work depending on what your occupation is.

If you work in a restaurant or an office, a lot of times you can leave your job behind when you walk out the door.

But some people are just ALWAYS working…even when they’re on vacation.

Check out this story and see if you think this woman is an a**hole for how she shot down her brother-in-law.

Start now!

AITA for refusing to let my brother-in-law in even though he flew all the way here to speak to my husband about an emergency?

“Whenever my husband and I go on vacation, it’s always ruined because of his work.

It got to the point where I told him it was pointless of us going anywhere because he would either be on the phone solving some crisis the entire time or we would have to leave early. He promised it wouldn’t happen this time and even took steps to make sure nobody could contact him while we were away.

The vacation was going really well until his brother showed up claiming he needed to speak to my husband about an emergency (work related). While he did look stressed out, I told him he couldn’t come inside, even though we were staying at their family vacation home. We had an argument because he told me it was important but I told him to wait 4 more days.

He ended up coming back a few hours later and this time my husband let him in. My brother-in-law was still angry at me for not letting him in earlier and my husband was upset that I hadn’t told him about his brother turning up or about him saying there was an emergency.
