She Waited in a Blizzard for Her Boyfriend’s Ride, But His Video Gaming Plans Left Her Out in the Cold.

Amidst a fierce blizzard, the Original Poster (OP) finds herself relying on a transportation agreement with her boyfriend, only to discover a series of apologetic texts detailing his unwillingness to brave the storm for her. OP’s journey home becomes a test of endurance, patience, and relationships as the evening unfolds. Will their agreement withstand the icy challenge, or will it crumble beneath the weight of unmet expectations?

Storm’s Arrival

Yesterday afternoon, a formidable storm swept in, bringing near-zero visibility. Snowplows scrambled, struggling to keep up with the mounting snow. Regular 20-minute commutes extended painfully to over an hour.

The Living Arrangement

OP lives with her boyfriend, who owns a car. While OP works, her boyfriend, backed by his wealthy father, spends his days sleeping and his nights playing video games. Their lives are intertwined yet distinct in routines.

The Transport Agreement

They have a standing arrangement: he drives her home from work thrice a week. On alternate days, OP takes the bus, a 90-minute journey involving three lines. The alternative, a costly Uber or cab ride, is seldom considered.

No Calls at Work

Work regulations deny OP the use of her phone. Finishing her day at 5:30, she discovered a barrage of texts from her boyfriend detailing the nightmarish traffic predictions and his reluctance to brave the storm for her.

The Cold Wait

By 5:45, OP stood shivering amidst a fierce blizzard, waiting for her first bus that was tardy by over 20 minutes. Ice pellets pelted her legs, causing numbness and discomfort. Boarding the heated bus, the ice on OP melted, drenching her clothes.

As OP transitioned between bus lines, irritation festered, growing with each cold wait. It wasn’t until 8:00 that OP boarded her last bus connection. The clock struck 8:30 when she finally arrived home.

Seeking Solace

OP’s patience had worn thin, and her emotions were running high. Desperate for warmth and comfort, OP drew herself a bubble bath. She indulged in leftover pasta directly from the tub, trying to find a moment of solace amidst her tumultuous evening.

Biting Back Anger

Resisting the overpowering urge to unleash her frustration on her boyfriend, OP headed straight to bed. She wanted to confront him for his apparent indifference to her harrowing journey, but she held back.

The morning after, OP left for work, retaking the arduous bus journey. She couldn’t help but glance at her boyfriend, snuggled comfortably in bed, oblivious to her ordeal the previous evening.

Pondering Accountability

With the events of the evening weighing heavily on her, OP wonders about her feelings. Is her anger justified? Or is she being unreasonable in her expectations of her boyfriend? She knows he isn’t her knight in shining armor, but he could show a little effort.

The Game Night

While OP braved the storm and the challenges of public transportation, her boyfriend was wrapped in the warmth of their shared home. His night was filled with the familiar sounds of video games, starkly contrasting to OP’s evening.

The Expensive Alternative

Between taking the bus and relying on her boyfriend, there’s the pricier option of Uber or a cab. For OP, this means parting with $40 to $60, a substantial amount considering her entry-level position.

The Apologetic Texts

Among the flurry of messages from her boyfriend, many carried a tone of apology. “I hope you don’t hate me,” he repeatedly texted, emphasizing his own discomfort with the stormy conditions.

The Numbness

Beyond the cold, OP’s feelings of abandonment and disappointment numbed her. The physical discomfort of waiting in blizzard conditions was compounded by the emotional sting of her boyfriend’s decision.

Was The Woman’s Behavior Appropriate?

OP posts her story online for feedback and judgment from the internet community. The readers in the forum had a lot of mixed views on the matter.

A Third View on The Story

A different person stated, “Getting mad about it and staying mad is a little ridiculous. How would you feel if your boyfriend had gone off the road into a ditch, and you still would have had to take the bus, only he could be in the hospital or worse?”

A Final Perspective on the Matter
