Woman Asks if She’s a Jerk for Not Leaving Work to Pick Her Boyfriend up at the Hospital

This reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Elaine found out her boyfriend had been in a bad accident but got some candy before she went to see him in the hospital.

Do you remember that episode? It’s a classic!

Anyway, check out this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page and see if you think this woman was out of line for her actions.

AITA for not leaving work to go pick up my boyfriend from the hospital?

“My f32 boyfriend m37 of 7 years got injured while working in the backyard again and went to the ER via an ambulance (that I paid for since he doesn’t have money).

He called me later to tell me he was in the hospital getting treated for his injury and assured me it wasn’t serious, then told me to come pick him up and take him home but I said I was busy in the middle of a project with my co workers so I couldn’t leave.

He said he had no one to give him a ride and as usual said no to uber then said my boss will make an exception for me which might have been true but I said I was sorry but I’m fairly new to work and it would be unprofessional of me to leave like that. He pressured me but I didn’t cave and stopped answering his calls.

I got off work, came home in the evening and he saw me and screamed at me words like selfish and uncaring for refusing to leave work to give him a ride home and leaving him to fend for himself this way. I had enough and told him that this is the 10th time he had an accident where he needed me to leave work and come give him a ride either home or to the hospital.

Also…he knows that I got kicked out of my old job for continuously leaving at random times to come to him for the same reasons but this is my new job and I’m making sure I won’t lose it too since he “doesn’t take Ubers” and say “just come get me, how hard could that be? It’s not like I’m asking you to carry me on your back” every time.

He was still convinced I was wrong for not dropping work and rushing to get him home and said my true colors are showing and “they ain’t pretty” like what? What does that supposed to mean? Anyways he remained upset and insisted I prioritized work over him which isn’t good.

AITA for not leaving mid work to go pick him up after he already caused to lose my old job because of this?”
