Being sexually-frustrated can drive people to do strange and often forbidden things. The most common outlets for sexual frustration are masturbation, porn, and infidelity. This man did none of those.
Instead, he drew up a spreadsheet documenting all the excuses his wife used to not have sex with him over the past month.
If you thought the age-old headache excuse still existed, you’ll be pleased to know that this woman has spiced things up a bit, just not in the way her husband might have liked.
Her replies included ‘I’m exhausted’, ‘I need a shower (didn’t shower)’, ‘I’m trying to watch the movie (fell asleep 15 mins later)’ and ‘I’m not feeling too well’.
Shocked at the email, the anonymous woman, also aged 26, tried to get in touch with her husband but he failed to return her calls.
In the end, she decided to share her husband’s harsh behavior on Reddit.
She explained the couple had been together for five years and married for last two. Although they had no kids, they bought a house together five months ago.
‘Our lives have been crazy busy,’ she wrote. ‘We spent all spring renovating our new house. At my job I was given nearly double my usual workload after some of my colleagues were laid off. I gained some weight in the winter and have been busting my a** at the gym to get rid of it.’
She then wrote: ‘Yesterday morning, while in a taxi on the way to the airport, husband sends a message to my work email which is connected to my phone.
‘He’s never done this, we always communicate in person or by text. I open it up, and it’s a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he won’t miss me for the 10 days I’m gone.
‘Attached is a SPREADSHEET of all the times he has tried to initiate sex since June 1, with a column for my “excuses”, using verbatim quotes of why I didn’t feel like having sex at that very moment.’
