Man Wants to Know if He’s a Jerk for Making His Wife Look Foolish in Front of Their Friends

Well, well, well, this does not sound like a very good situation, now does it?

That’s an understatement!

Because a guy making his wife look stupid is never a good thing…and it sounds like things got ugly in this situation.

Now it’s time to check out his story to see if you think he’s an a**hole.

Get started now!

AITA for letting my wife look foolish in front of our friends because I am tired of explaining something to her for the thousandth time?

“My wife does not understand why there are black bars on movies.

The greatest thing to ever happen to me was when all tvs started being sold in 16:9 instead of 4:3.

Before we got our new tv I would have to spend half an hour at the beginning of every movie trying to explain that there wasn’t anything cut out in those areas. That if the movie was going to fill out tv screen then we would actually lose out on the stuff happening on the left and right sides of the movie. Every single time.

So we got together yesterday with a bunch of her teacher friends. The tv was on in the background and someone out on The H**eful 8. It was filmed in a super wide aspect. So even on the tvs we have now there is still a black stripe top and bottom.

My wife noticed and started complaining about why “THEY” were cutting off the top and bottom of movies again. All of her friends started trying to explain it to her. One of them finally got out some construction paper and cut out the shape of films and screens and got her to understand.

When we got home she was p**sed at me for not explaining it to her and letting her look like an idiot. I asked her if she remembered that she used to always complain and all the times I explained it to her.

I literally had to out and get card board and cover the sides of the tv like I used to before to get her to remember.

She is still mad at me but I’m not sure what else I could have done. I thought I would never have to deal with this problem ever again.
