Picture this: you're invited to your significant other's family Zoom call, where everyone enjoys dinner and plays games together. Sounds fun, right? Well, not for one couple. During the call, our protagonist (22M) was caught off-guard when his girlfriend's (21F) family praised him for being an engineer. The only problem? He's not an engineer! 😱 He works as a Building Maintenance Tech at a children's hospital. So, what did he do? He told the truth, of course! But this didn't sit well with his girlfriend. Let's dive into their story.

To Lie or Not to Lie: A Modern Dilemma 🎭

So, our protagonist chose honesty over playing along with his girlfriend's lie. While he's proud of his job and the life he's built without a college degree, his girlfriend feels embarrassed and thinks he should have just gone along with the lie. Was he wrong for telling the truth, or is his girlfriend overreacting? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...

NTA. GF lied and is likely classist. Family not the problem.
