People are flocking to social media to weigh in after a woman revealed she ditched her husband and went on holiday solo.
I don't know about you, but the only time I can ever properly switch off and catch a break is either when I'm at the cinema or when I'm on holiday. And as much as I love munching my way through my bodyweight in popcorn and catching up with the latest movies, give me some sunshine, a pool and cocktail any day.
Holidays don't come round often enough and so when you do have the opportunity to take one, you've got to grab it, however, for one woman, this meant leaving her husband behind, the 29-year-old taking to Reddit to question if she made the right call.
Yes, we're back with another Reddit 'Am I The A**hole' thread.
The Redditer explains she and her 32-year-old husband had planned to take a trip to New Orleans, in the US for a week.
"We (but mostly I) have been planning this for months," she notes.
Earlier this year in March, she offered to plan 'most of it' out - such as 'where to go' and 'what to do' - all her husband needed to do was 'make sure he had the week off and buy the plane tickets'.
I think we all know where this is going...
The woman booked a hotel room for them, spent 'the last few months' booking restaurant reservations too and made an organised list of sights to see.
When she checked in with her husband 'every few weeks' he said he was 'waiting for the plane ticket prices to go down'.
The post continues: "Three weeks ago, I reminded him again and he said he had got off of work for the days but had forgotten to get the tickets. He looked online and the tickets were close to $1,500/ticket (£1,200). He said he was going to wait some more to see if they would go down.
"Last week, I asked if he had bought them yet and he said no. We looked again and the prices were still high. He said he wasn't willing to spend that much on them and asked how much money I would lose if I just canceled everything instead."
Despite all the months of planning the Redditer put into finding the right hotel, booking reservations and making a list of sights, her husband offered to 'have a nice staycation instead'.
She refused to cancel everything, they argued and 'didn't come to a conclusion'.
The Redditer then admits: "I wound up buying just one ticket for myself and when i flew out Saturday, I told him I was still going and he acted all surprised that I didn't want to stay home with him.
"I am in New Orleans now and he is blowing up my phone saying that I am an [a**hole] AH for still going without him. "He was trying to get a ticket to come too but I told him if he came, he is getting his own hotel room because this is now my vacation away from him. AITA?"
People have flocked to the post and it's safe to say everyone agrees the woman is definitely not the a**hole.
One user said: "NTA [...] You were absolutely right to not let him ruin the trip for you."
"This reeks of intentional sabotage," another even said.
And a third commented: "NTA. He literally had two tasks and plenty of time to complete them, plus reminders."
