Oh, did you make me a cake?
Sounds good…but I think I’ll try making my own.
pain! That’s a little harsh, isn’t it?
And that brings us to today’s story!
Read on to see if you think this guy acted like an a**hole to his wife on his birthday.
“For my (32M) birthday, I like a particular kind of cake: a chocolate-covered cherry cake. So my mother or father always made it for me.
After moving here, I started making my own. I’ve been married to her wife for less than a year, but we’ve been together for 6 years, so she knows everything about this cake, during that time we’ve baked it together, my parents made it, and I made it myself. I made it. I never asked or expected her to do so.
Before my birthday this year my wife asked me what kind of cake I wanted. She’s always the same type, but she said she doesn’t feel like baking bread. She told her I don’t have to worry about her baking because I can bake myself, she asked me again and I gave her the same answer.
The day before my birthday, I came home from work and gathered all the ingredients to make the cake. I go to get something from the fridge and there are two cheesecakes with “Happy Birthday” written between them. I love ‘, so I thought I’d change it this year.
I won’t say it, but she eats cheesecake at least once a month. I said thank you to her and they look great but I really want a cake that I like so I was going to make mine.
She got pissed off and yelled that we’d ruined her attempt to make things easier by not having to bake and bring a cake that everyone would love. Days have passed and she is still acting cold and callous at parties. Usually I move mountains and heavens to give her what she wants for her birthday and celebrate it the way she wants.
So let’s see what Reddit users have to say.
One reader said he was in the NTA and was pretty confused by the situation.
Another individual made a good point: too much cake can’t ruin a party!
And this reader said he’s in the NTA and his wife didn’t do this to make it easier for both of them…
