A father of 5 sparked outrage on Reddit after he told his wife it’s ridiculous to cry over a can of soup. You can only imagine how he feels about spilt milk! Here is the full story.
They’re a Growing Family
OP and his wife have four children, ranging in age from 2 to 7 years old.
His wife was 4 months pregnant with their fifth baby when they ran into a big speed bump.
She Takes Care of Them All
Because daycare is so expensive and because they have so many kids, OP, and his wife decided that she would stay home and take care of them all.
Money Is Tight
But money is tight even without paying for childcare. OP is the only breadwinner, and there are a lot of mouths to feed.
She Lost Her Wheels
Recently, OP’s wife’s car broke down, and they couldn’t really afford to fix it. So they had just been relying on his wheels to get everything they needed to do.
He Let Her Use His…Sometimes
Sometimes, if his wife needed to go somewhere during the day, OP would make other arrangements to get to work and leave the car with her.
She Was Stranded
But most of the time, OP took the car. That meant his wife was basically stranded at home all day with 4 kids and a pregnancy that was about halfway finished.
She Was Desperate for Soup
One day while OP was at work, his wife texted him and told him she had a wicked craving for a particular kind of soup.
He told her he’d stop on the way home and get some, and he followed through.
The Kids Came First
OP’s wife was thrilled to see the can of soup in his hand when he walked through the door.
She put it on the kitchen counter and told him she was going to eat it as soon as she got the kids ready for bed.
Dad Was Hungry, Too
She went upstairs to take care of the kids while OP went about his evening routine.
While she was gone, OP’s dad came by and mentioned that he was hungry.
He Found What He Wanted
They had just finished their dinner before his wife went upstairs, so OP told his dad to grab whatever he wanted from the kitchen. The older man rummaged around for a few minutes, then left.
She Was Frantic
Not long after his dad left, OP’s wife came downstairs. He could hear her moving things around and getting more and more agitated.
Her Soup Was Gone
When OP asked his wife what was wrong, she said she couldn’t find the soup he bought her.
It Couldn’t Have Been Dad
OP told her that his dad had been there, but he didn’t think he took the soup. The older man hardly ever ate canned food.
He Admitted the Whole Thing
But since his wife was panicking, OP called his dad just to check. Sure enough, dad said he had indeed taken the soup since no one told him it was off limits.
She Can’t Have Anything Nice
When OP’s wife heard about the soup’s fate, she broke into tears and complained that she can never get even one thing that she wants.
He Said She Was Ridiculous
After about an hour of listening to her sob, OP told his wife that it was ridiculous to cry over a can of soup.
He Just Didn’t Understand Her
That set her off even worse, and she told OP he didn’t understand how emotional she was because of the pregnancy and their life circumstances.
His Mom Said He Was a Jerk
OP then called his mom, looking for support, but she told him he was being a big old jerk.
It’s Never Just the Soup
Redditors completely agree with OP’s mom and think that he was minimizing his wife’s needs.
Many of them point out that the whole blow up wasn’t really about the soup but about OP’s wife not feeling respected or having any sort of control over her life at the moment.
