A woman is furious at her husband for selling the sandwiches she makes him for lunch.
She consulted Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum for advice. For a long time, her husband spent $300 a month on fast food for lunch at work. When the couple was starting to save up to move, she decided to make him lunch instead. But the wife soon discovered that her husband was selling the sandwiches and using the money to continue buying fast food every day.
“We’re struggling a bit financially because we’re saving up to purchase a new apartment,” the Reddit poster said. “He is used to eating fast food and it was costly. He spends more than $300 a month on just fast food. $20 daily. We live in an expensive area. I talked to him about it. He agreed that I make sandwiches for him to take with him to work. That way he eats healthy and we spare money for rent. Everything was going on well. I noticed he wouldn’t respond when I ask whether he liked the sandwiches I make. But kept asking me to make more than two since he was hungry.”
But when a coworker came over to visit, she learned her husband’s secret.
“We sat at the dinner table and his friend brought up the sandwiches I make for my husband,” she wrote. “And how delicious they are. I thanked him then he said the price was a bit much. I was confused I asked him to explain and he said my husband sells the sandwiches I make to his co-workers then goes to buy his own lunch from the restaurant. I was stunned my husband denied it. I began arguing with him after his friend left. He said there was nothing wrong with it. I told him I will no longer be making him sandwiches if he’s selling them to buy fast food.”
Reddit users sided with the wife on this issue.
“He kept that he was selling them a secret because he knew it was wrong,” one person commented.
“It was disrespectful of him,” another wrote.
“You should invoice him for the supplies and your time,” someone said.
