A Man And His Fiancée Were Ready For Their Dream Vacation, But When He Joked About Canceling Their Trip, Humor Quickly Turned To Horror

A man recently asked for advice about a fight with his girlfriend. They were due to go on the vacation of a lifetime together, but was he wrong to joke about postponing their trip? Here’s what he had to say:

The Trip Was Meant To Bring Them Together

“Long story short, we had a 2 week vacation planned at the end of this year. We have not been seeing each other for a while because we are located in different countries at the moment due to my work and her studies. Instead of meeting back home, we decided to plan this vacation, reserve everything, and just meet at the airport.”

Humor Was A Key Part Of The Relationship

The man and his fiancée liked to play pranks on one another. They both lived very stressful lives. For example, the fiancée was studying for her medicine midterms. The man thought that a little humor would help her relax.

The man decided that the best way to prank his Fiancée would be to talk about their upcoming vacation. They were both looking forward to it—but what if he pretended to be having second thoughts?

The Joke Didn’t Land

“You probably guessed right by now… It didn’t go as expected. The moment I said those words: ‘Maybe we should postpone things for now,’ she hung up, flipped me, called me all sorts of nasty names, and when I got struck by all of it, she used, ‘You ruined it (the vacation)’ and ‘If you loved me, you wouldn’t have ever done this’.”

The man felt the full brunt of his fiancée’s rage. He couldn’t understand how his little joke had gone so wrong. He hadn’t really meant that they were canceling the vacation, and she should have known that.

The man said that he obviously hadn’t meant to cancel their vacation. Couldn’t his fiancée use her common sense? The way that she had acted was a complete overreaction. His comedy career wasn’t exactly going well, but she was a seriously tough crowd.

She said that she’d taken his words at face value. The man’s joke had caught her off-guard. She was having a stressful time at school, and that hadn’t helped things. But now they were both on the same page, and she thought they might be able to work things out.

Once everything was clearer, the man’s fiancée was able to calm down. They both looked back on the little misunderstanding with good humor. But he still wondered if, in the moment, she had overreacted.

He understood why his fiancée had been a little annoyed, but he thought she should have handled the situation better. As far as he was concerned, there hadn’t been a need to immediately take the nuclear option.

Who Was To Blame?

The man couldn’t decide who was at fault in the situation. On the one hand, he had only been making a joke, although the joke had gone badly. Perhaps he shouldn’t have said anything at all. But, on the other hand, his fiancée had gone into a rage without stopping to think.

The Internet Responded

People attacked the man. One person said, “You couldn’t cope with the fact that she was focused on something other than you, so you decided to manufacture some drama to mess with her so she would pay attention to you.”

A second person said, “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. You knew she was not in her normal headspace,” while another added, “There’s a time and a place for this (personally, I find this kind of pranking to be childish and cruel). While she’s studying for exams is not that time.”
