Man mad that wife doesn't understand 'film', she says, 'you love to embarrass me.'


When this man is annoyed with his wife, he asks Reddit:

'AITA for letting my wife look foolish in front of our friends because I am tired of explaining something to her for the thousandth time?'

My wife does not understand why there are black bars on movies. The greatest thing to ever happen to me was when all tvs started being sold in 16:9 instead of 4:3.

Before we got our new tv I would have to spend half an hour at the beginning of every movie trying to explain that there wasn't anything cut out in those areas.

That if the movie was going to fill out tv screen then we would actually lose out on the stuff happening on the left and right sides of the movie. Every single time.

So we got together yesterday with a bunch of her teacher friends. The tv was on in the background and someone out on The Hateful 8. It was filmed in a super wide aspect. So even on the tvs we have now there is still a black stripe top and bottom.

My wife noticed and started complaining about why 'THEY' were cutting off the top and bottom of movies again. All of her friends started trying to explain it to her. One of them finally got out some construction paper and cut out the shape of films and screens and got her to understand.

When we got home she was pissed at me for not explaining it to her and letting her look like an idiot. She said I love to embarrass her. I asked her if she remembered that she used to always complain and all the times I explained it to her.

I literally had to out and get card board and cover the sides of the tv like I used to before to get her to remember. She is still mad at me but I'm not sure what else I could have done. I thought I would never have to deal with this problem ever again. AITA?

Let's find out.

NTA - uhm OP. If you're serious about the construction paper thing... I don't think I need to say more there. You've explained it to her before. I can't believe I have to say this but if she didn't get it after the many times you explained that...then I can't fault you there. Is she ok...?

NTA. When people keep forgetting a concept after I’ve explained it multiple times, I deliberately sit back and let others explain it to them. My hope is that if it comes from someone else, maybe that person will explain it better or have more credibility.

NTA. my mother does this and she always has, so it’s not an age thing. i have come to realize that the real issue is not that she doesn’t understand after multiple explanations on whatever the recurring issue is.

It’s that she doesnt WANT it to be that way and that’s just her way of complaining. instead of explaining for the millionth time, I just say “sorry that bothers you” and move on.

Well, looks like OP is NTA. What would YOU have done in this situation?
