A man has been slammed online after taking to social media to complain about his wife playing on a video game.
The man took to Reddit to reveal his wife had taken the day off work so she could be up at 4am to start playing her new online video game as soon as it launched, and when he woke up at 10.30am she was still playing.
Instead, she suggested he order takeout, telling him: “Order us something from DoorDash, I’m in the middle of a dungeon and may be a while.”
The husband complained that he didn’t want to order a takeout breakfast as they’d already discussed ordering pizza for dinner and felt that was “too much takeout for one day.”
“I calmly explained this, and she got p***** and shrieked at me that she just wanted one weekend to focus on her video game. I said that it was unfair to our family for her to isolate all weekend, and she got even more mad, telling me that I have two hands and can feed the god-d*** cat,” he wrote.
“I was in tears at this point, and I did raise my voice and said that I was worried she’s obsessed with this game and maybe she needs professional help. She threw her car keys at me and said that I need to get out of her face, that she’s works all the time and doesn’t ask for much, and I need to leave her be and get out of her face for a few hours.”

The man concluded by writing that he was “truly concerned” she had grown an unhealthy obsession with the game, adding that he’d hoped the responses to his post would talk some sense into her.
He added: “When the game’s release got delayed, she moved her vacation time rather than just keep her previous day off and spend it with me. She’s been absolutely freaking out about this game and I don’t understand it and it scares me.”
“Dude, she isn’t obsessed with a game. A lot of people wake up early/stay up late for the launches of games, it’s not unusual. It sounds like you’re just mad that she’s not cooking for you and that you have to feed yourself and the cat,” one Reddit user responded.
“If she works all the time, and this is her way to unwind, let her. She’s not hurting anyone and you are a grown adult capable of taking care and entertaining yourself. You didn’t want this thread to ‘wake her up’, you just wanted validation from strangers online about your whining.”
Another added: “She doesn’t have to spend all of her vacation just with you. She doesn’t have to immediately stop what she’s doing because you’re hungry. This is one day, you’re not being neglected, but you are ruining something she has been looking forward to for likely months because it’s getting more attention than you for the day.
“Seriously, the way she’s acted indicates this isn’t just about the game. Sounds like she’d thoroughly p***** off she’s having to look after you and can’t have her own space.”
