Internet slams man who secretly used his wife’s savings account for his sister’s wedding dress
Husband who hoped to find support on Reddit’s “Am I the Hole **” page after he confessed to secretly taking thousands of dollars from a joint bank account with his wife to help pay for his sister’s wedding dress has been criticized online.
Reddit user u / No_YogurtCloset9610 shared his story with the group of 3.3 million people and asked them IATA (am I the hole **). In the post, voted 17,500 times since it was shared on Sunday, the user said he tapped into the 40,000 savings after his sister asked for 5,000 for a wedding dress.
The user, who did not disclose the currency used, said: “It is [the wife] told me the money was either for an emergency or in case we were planning on buying our own house.
“She said in case I need the money for an emergency I am allowed to use it. I also have access to the account but so far I haven’t used anything.”
The commentator said his sister requested the money after claiming her card expired and stopped working about two months ago.
But, two months later, the sister continues to defer repayment of the money she borrowed and the user admitted that he had started to feel guilty and nervous in case the wife found out that money is lacking.
User u / No_YogurtCloset9610 added, “My best friend says I’m honest with her and should accept the consequences of my own actions for not letting my wife know and letting her know about the missing money. . IATA? I feel very guilty for this and for trusting my sister. “
Reddit commenters weren’t impressed with the user’s behavior and wondered if the sister really needed that much money.
A poster said in a response with 44,000 up votes: “Your sister not being able to afford her wedding dress is not an emergency. You were scammed, her bank reportedly sent her new debit card. at the beginning of the month it expires, don’t wait to send one after it expires.
“You don’t get that money back. And you’ll probably never get your wife’s trust back, either. YTA [you’re the a**hole]. “
Another commenter was just as outspoken, adding, “YTA. You should let your wife know and start paying back the amount you took immediately. You should start asking your sister to pay you back in small amounts, if possible. And now you have to realize your sister is kicked out and you should never lend her money again. “
A third Reddit user said: “I just want to add that the longer it took OP [original poster] tell me, the more I would be angry. After a certain point, it becomes a matter of honesty. OP, I’m really pissed off and I’m not even your wife. You fucked up, man. You must come and clean as soon as possible. YTA. “
