This one just sounds weird to me…
Why would you cancel SOMEONE ELSE’S job interview?
It’s bizarre, right?
But that’s the situation we’re dealing with in this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page today!
So let’s dig in and see what’s going on here!
AITA for flipping out at my husband for cancelling my daughter’s job interview?
“My daughter “Mia” is 23 years old. She’s a college graduate and recently started looking a job.
Her stepdad, my husband has been begging her to come work at his company but she refused because she said that most employees there are men, and that they make uncomfortable comment about women and they make her feel uncomfortable (she went to the company many times and was feeling uncomfortable) she said that in those 30-40 minute visits she couldn’t handle the negative vibe so she couldn’t imagine working there 8+ hours everyday.
My husband insisted and basically gave her a “pros list” that he though is enough to make her reconsider. She still refused.
Her best friend found her a job opportunity at a company that’s well known in our area and Mia was excited beyond measure. She even went shopping for new clothes just for the interview. However, the day of the interview, I got a call from her crying saying her interview was cancelled.
I was confused thinking something must’ve gone wrong but she said that her stepdad got home and told her he cancelled the interview using her email which led to an argument. I was livid I went home and I flipped out at him, like I just lost it on him and he was shocked by my reaction. He defended himself saying he did this for her own good and that he was frustrated after she kept turning down his offer to join him in the company.
He lashed out saying that instead of siding with her I should encouraging her to join the company and help make it better instead of working for others. I got out of the room and he shut the door and stayed inside the whole time.
We’re still on non speaking terms but he occasionally threw in how he just wanted what’s best for the whole family but now Mia missed an opportunity to work with a respectable company and gain the benefits that’d help her progress in her career.”
Check out what Reddit users had to say about this.
One person said she’s NTA and that her daughter can make her own decisions.
And this Reddit user also said she’s NTA but her husband and his company both suck.
Another individual made a good point about this guy and his company.
