When your boyfriend acts like a child during an important call 🤦‍♀️

Job interviews can be stressful enough without a needy partner trying to steal your attention. That's exactly what happened to one woman who was trying to have an important call with a potential employer when her boyfriend kept interrupting her to ask who she was talking to. Despite her attempts to wave him away and continue with the call, he persisted in following her and even started unloading the dishwasher while she was on the phone. The woman eventually snapped at him, calling him worse than a nosey 5-year-old. While the boyfriend apologized and claimed he was just curious, the woman was left feeling annoyed and frustrated. As she reflects on the situation, she wonders if she overreacted and asks the internet for their judgment. Check out the comments section to see what people had to say about the situation.
