A Friendship Tested: The Airport Incident That Changed Everything 🛫🍻💔

In a tale that's as dramatic as it is heartbreaking, our protagonist finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place. After a visit from his old friend and her problematic husband spirals out of control, he's left questioning his actions and feeling guilty. Despite his best intentions, he ends up leaving his friend at the airport when her drunk husband causes them to miss their flight. The fallout? A strained friendship, a barrage of nasty texts, and a whole lot of regret. But was he really to blame, or was he just a good friend caught in a bad situation? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation. 🌐💬

NTA. Your friend's husband has a big drinking problem. Your friend has a big, drunk, abusive problem whom she is choosing to stay with and enable. Those are their problems for which they are not seeking help or change. Their poor daughter! You have been more than generous and hospitable. They are not entitled to turn their problems (which they are not trying to get under control) into your problem and jeopardize your employment. 💔

John_JayKay | John_JayKay

NTA. You were more than accommodating. They were late because of her husband and wasted your time, not valuing it what-so-ever. You had other obligations to tend to and at that point they were on their own to find accommodations until a new flight could be arranged. Might be harsh, but that is the reality of making poor life decisions. 💁‍♂️
