The internet has come to the defense of a man who gave up hosting a game night because of a gambler’s girlfriend and her sarcastic remarks about the “messy” house.
In a viral post submitted to Reddit’s popular “AmILeA**hole” (AITA) forum, u/GillyeoWalters explained their side of the story so the AITA community can write their opinion on whether it should be considered the hole **.
The Redditor explained that he hosts Dungeons and Dragons (DnD) parties with friends. The event had been going well until one of the players asked if his girlfriend could come.
Dungeons & Dragons is filled with endless magical stories where friends can role-play their characters and many take the game very seriously. According to Forbes2020 has been a big year for the game as the company announced that over 50 million people have played it so far.
“During the session she came across as very bored and constantly making loud sighing noises to I guess express her boredom which was disruptive and truth be told childish imo. She also had a very rude attitude in general and complained about the choice of snacks and drinks,” he wrote.
As the 34-year-old Reddit user logged into their Discord group, he noticed some rude comments left by the player’s girlfriend.
“[She] was talking shit behind my back, calling my house a “shit hole” and me a “psycho”, and my husband a “creep”. The user assumed she didn’t know he had chat access on the messaging system.
He briefly explained that he wouldn’t consider his house “messy or dirty”, but that he has a side job creating paper flowers for events like weddings or funerals. The girlfriend said she found it “scary” that a 30-year-old had flowers around his house.
He wasn’t sure why she was treating her creep husband as the only reasons he could think of the 7 year age difference in his relationship or that her husband’s face looked a bit different due to an unfortunate accident.
Later, all the players asked him when the next DnD game night would be.
“I told them the date and also that the girlfriend was ‘requested not to come, because she felt so uncomfortable in my filthy hole,'” he said.
Angered by the comment, the player and his girlfriend shot back that the Redditor’s husband couldn’t be home on game night either.
“I called him a legitimate asshole and made it clear that I wouldn’t be hosting the sessions any longer, as long as he wanted to take her,” he admitted.
Everyone who attended the DnD games either chose to side with the Redditor or decided not to get involved.
The AITA community was quick to comment on their thoughts.
“NTA. She disrespected you, your spouse AND your house! Why the hell would you invite this woman back to your house then? I also don’t understand why she’s upset about it when she was so clearly unhappy experience.” u/Substantial-Fox-4905 wrote in a popular comment with over 14,200 upvotes. “Those in camp who want the drama to go away need to realize that SHE created the drama. Therefore, if she no longer attends = no drama.”
“NTA, so some morons want to skip the drama and their solution is to invite a rude drama queen? Some of your friends don’t seem too bright,” u/saf32rdsa commented.
“If they’re your friends, they should care about you. Not just if game night continues. Don’t host. Don’t give in. Find better people to play with,” u/alexislynnie said in part.
U/zZombi__ said, “She has rights and is rude just like her boyfriend. He too who says “spouses” is bullshit if it’s his girlfriend and not his wife. Either way, why is she offended if she doesn’t like it to begin with?
“Your home is your safe space. It’s the only place that belongs to you. Whether it’s a playgroup, a group of friends, or a huge bag of teddy bears, you decide who enters your home,” u/MistressCatNat wrote in part.
