Wife gets revenge after husband's unreasonable behaviour 🤬🍽️☕

The pandemic has forced many couples to navigate new roles and responsibilities. In this case, the wife lost her job due to COVID and has taken on the role of a housewife while also studying nursing. However, her husband has unreasonable expectations and treats her like she's at his beck and call. When she was 7 minutes late for their daily run, he copped a major attitude with her, which led her to take drastic action. She refused to make him dinner, lunch for work, and even poured his pitcher of sweet tea down the drain. In this post, she seeks advice on whether her reaction was an overreaction. The comments and reactions from readers have been overwhelmingly supportive, and the wife has even updated the post to express her gratitude for the outpouring of love and support. She's now staying indefinitely at her parents' house and is taking the time to reflect on her situation. Read on to see how this story unfolds.
