She was so overbearing and bossy her boyfriend canceled their holiday together and went without her! He was
After his girlfriend invited her cousins along to a ski trip he had planned, a 25-year-old male was pleased for the adventure ahead. That was until he asked one of his friends for the ride too.
Getting excited about the trip, the original poster (OP) on Am I The A**hole (AITA) talked to his girlfriend about using snowblades rather than standard skis as they were shorter, fun to use cheaper to hire.
His girlfriend was quick to ask him to use “normal skis” and that she believed the snow blades to be unsafe, and he reassured her that they were ok. Fast forward to them both looking at the website and him asking to choose a multi-choice option that included different types of skis and snowboards for an extra 17 euros.
Things took a turn for the worse when his girlfriend said she would not pay for the extras and would only order standard skis for all four travelers. Despite him sending her videos and information on the safety, his girlfriend insists that she does not want to hire the blades and that they cost more money.
This was despite an agreement that he and his cousin would pay for the hire car for her and her friend hiring skis.
It is safe to say that AITA readers were perplexed at the girlfriend’s behavior, saying, “I’m exhausted just reading this. GF is trying to control OP’s choices and doesn’t even know what the F she is talking about” Another exclaimed, ” Sounds like classic narcissism “I haven’t heard of them, so they’re not a thing”… Is she always controlling like this?”.
After an argument, the OP said he would book his equipment, but his GF was unhappy as she did not trust him to book things. Fed up, the OP canceled the trip and decided to go with his friends, which did not go well.
Now being accused of making things complicated and prioritizing his friends, the OP turned for advice to see if he was the one being an a**hole.
Reddit users quickly supported the OP saying, “She is treating you like you are a child, and it sounds controlling, not out of concern.”
“It’s almost like she is being so difficult so that you do drop out of the trip, and she can turn around and blame you.”
There was also some concern about her flawed logic of boots being more dangerous than standard skis, with people pointing out, “what does she expect to happen differently when you hurt yourself on snow blades compared to normal skis?! This sounds so hilarious :D.”
The majority felt that there was much more going on than this disagreement. It seemed too trivial and should not have led to a holiday being canceled.
One person said, “Imagine this situation as the rest of your life with this woman…NTA, maybe plan more than just this ski trip without her.”
Another user agreed and declared, “I would’ve canceled too. If she’s this difficult about the blades now, she would have been ten times worse on the actual trip when you were renting/using them. NTA”.
The GF may have planned a ski trip alone, but we hope the OP has fun skiing in his favorite snow boots!
