A frustrated husband who created a spreadsheet charting the excuses his wife was using for not having sex saw his plan backfire when she posted it online.
The man spent a month compiling the list of reasons, which included “I’m watching a show” – which was a re-run of a Friends episode.
Other excuses from his wife were “I have to be up early”, “I’m not feeling good, I ate too much” and “I might be getting sick”.
Another excuse is “I’m too drunk and I ate to much” followed a few days later with “You’re too drunk.”
The man, who has not been named, wanted to make a point after having sex three times in two months.
He put the information into an excel document and e mailed it to his wife at an airport ahead of a business trip.
His wife, Reddit user throwwwwaway29, tried to contact him but couldn’t, so she wrote on Reddit: “Husband sends a message to my work email…he’s never done this, we always communicate in person or by text.
“I open it up and it’s a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he won’t miss me for the 10 days I’m gone.
“Attached is a spreadsheet of all the times he has tried to initiate sex, with a column for my ‘excuses’, using verbatim quotes of why I didn’t feel like having sex at that very moment.”
The spreadsheet, since deleted, attracted a number of comments with one Reddit user saying: “There are so many ways this could have been communicated better, but instead he came up with some bizarre hit and run with a spreadsheet method which I’d say is actually going to be really hard to come back to a normal relationship from.”
But another wrote: “Maybe her husband has got sick and tired of being totally and utterly ignored for months on end, has had enough and wants resolution of the issue. This time after all attempts, he has got her attention.”
