A man tired of lack of intimate relations with his wife, created a whole list of excuses his wife used to not having sex with him.
For a whole month, the 26-year-old frustrated husband wrote down every response from his significant other when he asked her for intimacy. Sick and tired, he compiled the list of reasons into a special Excel document before cruelly emailing her as she arrived at an airport ahead of a ten-day business trip.
The excuses, listed with his comments, included: ”I’m watching the show’ (Friends re-run)’; ”I feel sweaty and gross, I need a shower’ (didn’t shower until next morning)’ and ”I’m trying to watch the movie’ (fell asleep 15 mins later)’. Another excuse is “I’m too drunk and I ate to much” followed a few days later with “You’re too drunk.”
Shocked at the email, the anonymous 26-year-old woman tried to get in touch with her husband but couldn’t reach him, as it turned out that he cut contact with her. As a response, she wrote on Reddit:
“Husband sends a message to my work email…he’s never done this, we always communicate in person or by text. I open it up and it’s a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he won’t miss me for the 10 days I’m gone.”
She continued: “Attached is a spreadsheet of all the times he has tried to initiate sex, with a column for my ‘excuses’, using verbatim quotes of why I didn’t feel like having sex at that very moment.”
She then explained they had been renovating their house and she had had double the workload at work after a colleague was laid off. ‘”Our lives have been crazy busy,” she wrote, adding: “I gained some weight in the winter and have been busting me a** at the gym trying to get rid of it.”
The spreadsheet was quickly spread around the internet with web users taking both sides in the debate. After receiving over 600 comments debating the issue, ranging from ‘she needs to address her intimacy issues’ to ‘he is like a 13-year-old child’ the original post has been taken down and we don’t know the outcome.
One Reddit user wrote: “There are so many ways this could have been communicated better, but instead he came up with some bizarre hit and run with a spreadsheet method which I’d say is actually going to be really hard to come back to a normal relationship from.”
Another user said: “Your husband is expressing legitimate concerns in an extremely immature and passive aggressive way. Clearly, the communication style in your relationship is shit. Fix it or don’t, it’s your marriage.”
One added: “Maybe her husband has got sick and tired of being totally and utterly ignored for months on end, has had enough and
