Woman Overhears And Live-Tweets A Couple’s Fight About The Woman Getting Paid More & The Ending Is Amazing

People still don’t understand what year this is.

I mean, it is 2017 for gosh sakes! But people are acting like it is 1960. Here I was thinking that we had made huge leaps in combating sexism, but it turns out, that is far from the truth.

You’ll understand what I’m talking about once you read the following story. You see, while it might be rude to eavesdrop on someone’s conversation, it is not really eavesdropping if they are fighting loudly and that is exactly what this couple was doing.

It was a fight between a couple. The reason? Well, the guy will apparently be ‘humiliated’ if she accepted the promotion she was offered. Why? Because then she would be making more than him. Yes, I kid you not, that is what he said.

I wasn’t aware this was a thing in 2017.

She understandably started crying.

No point focusing on her career? Who is he to decide for her!?

However, that made her snap out of it.

She did the right thing.

Hope his fingers hurt by the end of it.

The Twitter user who posted the story also had something to say.

Other people agreed 100%.

I mean, who doesn’t like more money?

Who cares if it’s the guy earning or the woman?


She may not realize it now, but she did the right thing.


There is nothing to be ‘humiliated’ about.
