Have you ever had a guest that just won’t leave? And you are trying and trying to kindly drop hints that they have stayed beyond their welcome? What if that guest was your daughter and her insufferable fiancé? Would you go so far as to neglect to tell them that the floral panties in their laundry are not in fact from a mystery woman but accidentally got in there from your wife’s pile?
That’s what happened to one father on Reddit, whose daughter is so worried her fiancé is cheating on her that she immediately thought the underwear belonged to The Other Woman—except this father just stepped aside and watched the pyrotechnics instead of telling her the truth.
“My 20 year old daughter and her are currently staying with us. I love my daughter but she is very difficult and I can’t stand her fiancé. I gave them a deadline to move out because I can’t take this anymore,” the OP writes.
“They got into a massive fight the other day while my wife was out. I guess a pair of my wife’s underwear got in with their laundry and she thought he was cheating. I think the fact she immediately jumped to cheating shows how bad their relationship is.”
“She was waving the underwear around and I recognized them because they had a floral print but I just let this ridiculous fight go on. My wife came home after about thirty minutes and said they were hers. My wife asked if I didn’t realize they were hers and I accidentally laughed.”
“My daughter burst into tears and won’t talk to me. Her fiancé said we’re f*cked and left the house but my wife thought it was funny.”
