A woman with appendicitis was left alone in a hospital for hours while her partner went to watch an important football game with friends. She suggested booking a hotel to watch the game, but he insisted on going to his friend's place. Despite the hospital not allowing her to leave alone, her partner left her behind and only came to pick her up the following day.

He then accused her of ruining the game for him by constantly texting and calling during the game. She's now wondering if she's the a**hole for not understanding the cultural significance of football and asking her partner to do a completely unreasonable drive to pick her up.

Woman with appendicitis left alone during important game ⚽️

A woman with appendicitis was left alone in a hospital during an important football game. Her partner, who was agitated and impatient, left to watch the game with his friends and later called her a**hole for constantly ringing and texting him during the game.

In her post, the woman is conflicted about whether she is the one at fault for not understanding the cultural significance of football and asking her partner to make an unreasonable drive. However, she also suggests that they could have watched the game in a hotel room instead of leaving her alone in the hospital.
