As long as there have been marriages, men have been complaining about women taking too long shopping. Reddit user u/Striking_Still_3721 reached his breaking point with his chronically late wife was taking too long at the mall. He abandoned her, turned off his phone, and went and saw a movie alone.
Now he's asking the Internet if he overreacted.
I'm a 34-year-old man, and my wife is 29. We have been married for five years.
Since we started dating, she has always taken her sweet time doing everything. Getting dressed, doing her makeup, eating, whatever it is, she takes forever.
I'm generally a patient person, but I get extremely anxious when I'm late for something with a scheduled starting time. Alone, I have never been late for anything. With her in tow, I'm late for everything.
