Toilet Time vs. Toddler & Terrier Time: A Summary

So, here's the scoop: Our protagonist, let's call him 'Nature's Call Nick', was just trying to unwind after a long day at work. He was looking forward to a peaceful bathroom break when his family arrived home unexpectedly. His fiancée was upset that he wasn't there to help with their son and dog (both referred to as 'the kids'). Despite usually being a hands-on dad and partner, Nick found himself in hot water for choosing the bathroom over the driveway. Adding to the drama, his fiancée battles with mental health issues, which he's committed to helping her address. The situation cooled down after about 30 minutes, but it certainly left Nick with a lot to ponder. Let's see what the internet thinks about this bathroom break blunder. 🚽👶🐶

"NTA Legit single mom here. Last night I carried my sleeping toddler, multiple bags, and walked my dog up to my 3rd floor apartment. Is she always this dramatic?? Seriously though, 'f**k, she's gonna get upset because she needs my help getting inside the house with our dog or something.' This is concerning that this was your automatic thought. I'm guessing she is." 😳
