Imagine working hard to change your career, only to have your spouse undermine your accomplishments. That's what happened to this 36-year-old woman who went from being a nurse to a marine biologist working at a turtle rehabilitation center. She's thrilled with her new career, but her husband keeps introducing her as a tour guide in an aquarium! 😒 He claims it's easier to explain and funny, but she's not laughing. Let's dive into what happened when she confronted him about it.

From Nursing to Marine Biology 🌊

Is Asking for Respect Too Much? 🤷‍♀️

Our marine biologist is fed up with her husband's 'joke' of introducing her as a tour guide. She's worked hard to change her career and wants the respect she deserves. After refusing to attend an event unless he introduced her correctly, her husband accused her of overreacting. But is it really too much to ask for a little respect and recognition? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 😏

Introduce him as your roommate until he learns to respect you. 😱

"I'm actually a marine biologist working with turtle rehabilitation at the aquarium, but for some reason, my husband can never remember my title. I guess it's too long for him" 😅

NTA, but boy, is he ever. He's deliberately belittling you in order to make you seem less than him. And yet he says that *you're* undermining *him*? Please, go right on 'undermining' him as clearly as you can until he stops, and tell him flat out that you're going to do that. Bet it stops. 😤
