Tricking your loved ones or causing them severe anxiety in the name of a "funny joke," is not a good idea, and it's important to seriously think through your scheme before you decide to film your wife's reaction to traumatizing information for TikTok views. Going viral with a "hilarious" joke can be fun if everyone involved is working together for a bit, but fooling someone you love to the point where they're extremely distressed is immature and disrespectful. If you're the only one laughing after you pull a prank on someone, that's not a prank, it's really just bullying. Some people deeply hate practical jokes and if pranks are an important part of your personality or marriage goals, it's key to find a partner who shares that passion.
So, when a frustrated new mom decided to consult Reddit's "Am I the As*hole?" about a wildly irresponsible "prank" her husband pulled on her that she didn't find funny at all, people were eager to weigh in.
