Diply Social Team
Diply | Diply

Separated parents are no strangers to heated exchanges, but this dad's trip to the supermarket with his 13-year-old daughter turned into a full-blown drama when his ex-wife's friend intervened. The daughter had just started her period and needed more pads, so dad stepped up to help. But when they bumped into the friend in the feminine hygiene aisle, she insisted that the mom should be the one to handle this delicate situation. 😒🙄

Dad's Dilemma: To Call or Not to Call? 🤷‍♂️

So, the dad found himself in a sticky situation when his ex-wife's friend insisted that he should've contacted the mom to handle their daughter's period. Despite the dad's efforts to help his daughter, the friend and ex-wife believed that the mom should be the one to take care of everything. The ex-wife even argued that just because something is legally right doesn't mean it's morally right too. As the drama unfolds, we're left wondering: who's really in the wrong here? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🤔💭

NTA. Men should be comfortable dealing with periods. 🤷‍♀️
