When a lady roused her husband up at 6AM to take their children to school, he became angry with her
The man said in the subreddit thread that he didn't want to be disturbed at all and that he became enraged when his wife did. He explained that his wife, Sonia, is a stay-at-home mother and that he knows how difficult it is for her to handle everything, so he frequently assists her with supper and the children's schoolwork. But lately, he has been feeling rather worn out because he has a significant assignment at work that is due shortly. He was so exhausted from working nonstop that his coworkers had to carry him to the hospital when he nearly passed out. However, it appears that there was a misunderstanding between the two since Sayejav experienced a complete breakdown.
“When I got home, I spoke to my wife and she seemed to be understanding. I asked her to give me a day off from everything, as I would try to get as much sleep as possible that night to come back better,” the man wrote. But the next morning, Sonia roused him up so he could drive the kids to school. The guy still felt fatigued and yearned for more sleep, but Sonia insisted that he must fulfill his obligations as a parent. She also had other plans that morning, including attending a yoga class and the gym. He was so exhausted from working nonstop that his coworkers had to carry him to the hospital when he nearly passed out. The man explained, “It could be being tired or not, but I ended up losing my mind and screaming ‘I just need a few hours of sleep, please respect what I asked of you yesterday and let me sleep, man.’”
Even though she was rather shocked, she let him sleep as she went with the kids. Later, when he finally got out of bed, Sonia had bombarded his phone with texts accusing him of treating her badly. "There were several messages from her saying that I shouldn't have yelled at her for asking me to take responsibility as a parent and that it was toxic behavior of mine," the man added. Redditors claimed that he wasn’t wrong to yell at his wife like that. One user wrote, “Regardless of everything else, she agreed to your request of a day off from everything in order to catch up on your rest, by order of your doctor. She then tried to renege on that deal. Her fault, not yours.” “What you're describing wasn't 'being tired' it was medical exhaustion. You ended up in the hospital," another person commented.
"At that point, sleep was a medical necessity. For her to wake you at 6:30 AM to walk the kids to school was not only cruel but deliberately obtuse and a risk to your health.” “You are not asking to be permanently excused from your morning parenting duties, you are asking on this one specific occasion for your wife to pick up your slack. It sounds like you are having health issues that can be resolved with more sleep,” another person commented. One person commented, "Honestly, I can’t stand people who throw around words like toxic behavior and crap. Those words are heavy and shouldn’t be said lightly. Yelling at someone does not mean it is toxic."
