A woman recently caused a stir on Reddit after she refused to go to a work event with the boyfriend who broke her back. And that was just the beginning of her injuries! Here is the full story.
He Wrecked Them Both
OP is a 32-year-old woman who has been in a relationship with 34-year-old boyfriend for four years.
A year ago, they were involved in a car accident where the BF was driving and found to be 100% at fault.
She’s Had a Long Road
While the boyfriend escaped unharmed, OP suffered a broken back.
She was in a back brace for months and has been undergoing physical therapy in the months since.
She Came Back Strong
During her recovery, OP has focused on her fitness more than ever before, spending countless hours on gym workouts and building up a running routine.
She now considers herself to be in the best physical shape of her life.
It Was Perfect Timing
About a month ago, OP found out there was a big 10k race taking place on the one-year anniversary of the accident. It was being held in a mountain town about 3 hours away.
They Were All In
OP thought that race would be a positive way to spend the day and celebrate her recovery.
She suggested the idea to her boyfriend, their two best friends, and their partners, and everyone agreed it would be a grand occasion.
They Would Make a Weekend of It
The plan was for OP and her group to run the race on Saturday morning, then spend the rest of the weekend exploring the town.
He Has a New Team
Recently, though, OP’s boyfriend started a new job working remotely. He hasn’t met his coworkers, but the team is getting together in San Francisco the Monday after the 10K trip.
He Would Pull Double Duty
OP and her boyfriend knew about the San Fran trip before they planned their weekend getaway, and the BF was planning to do both.
His Schedule Got Even Tighter
But then the boyfriend’s boss called to tell him that the company had booked tickets for a Giants game on Sunday before their Monday meeting. That overlapped with OP’s big trip.
He Canceled on Her
OP’s boyfriend came to her and told her that he wouldn’t be able to go on the trip to the mountain town because he needed to be in San Francisco on Sunday.
She Gave Him Options
OP was devastated by this news, but she tried to make it all work anyway.
She suggested that her boyfriend could still come on the trip with her, but drive back late Saturday or early Sunday to catch his flight.
He Shot Her Down
OP also suggested her boyfriend could fly out of the regional airport near the mountain town.
But he rejected all of her suggestions, saying it was all too much hassle or that he’d be too tired.
She Let It Drop
Eventually, OP realized that her boyfriend wasn’t going to budge and would not be coming with her to celebrate her recovery.
She let it drop, but she was very angry and hurt, and she told him so.
He Wanted More From Her
Then, on the morning OP was leaving for her trip, her boyfriend tried to be affectionate with her.
She rejected all his advances, and he accused her of ruining their last day together.
She Is Devastated
Now OP feels conflicted. She doesn’t like to have arguments with her boyfriend, and she understands his need to network with his colleagues. But she is also beyond hurt that he skipped out on her celebration, especially since he caused her injury in the first place.
Redditors are very supportive of OP’s feelings and think that she had every right to expect her boyfriend to keep his commitment to her.
They agree with her that the BF could have made some concessions in order to attend both events.
