Nosy Mom Tries To Get Daughter Fired From Dream Job After It Makes Her Uncomfortable

A lot of the time we seek our parent's approval on things. After all, they used to be the only two people we looked up to. But after some point, you realize your parents are just people with flaws, who sometimes have opinions that you don't agree with, and that's okay. We are many to make our own decisions and even make our own mistakes. If you're an adult, and your parents aren't financing that decision, they don't really need to be involved at all.

One nosy mom decided she didn't like her daughter's new job and legitimately tried to call her boss and get her terminated. Now, her daughter, on the 'Am I the A-hole' page on Reddit, is seeking validation in her decision to ignore her mother's wishes.

Wife Demands Husband Turn Down 'Dream Job' At Risk Of Her Career, Or She'll Divorce Him

A big part of marriage, and relationships in general, is being able to make compromises for the other person. The mutual love and respect you have for your partner is the glue that holds you together and helps you get through those tricky give-and-take moments in your relationship. But sometimes things aren't so straight forward, and it's not clear who should give and who should take. One woman posted on the popular AITA thread on Reddit, wondering if she was the a**hole for asking her husband to give up his dream job because it would risk her career. At first glance, you might think so, because whose job comes first; hers or his? But as she explains the situation, it becomes apparent that he was prepared to sabotage her very high-paying niche career for a job that paid less than half her salary, and that he applied for behind her back. Everyone jumped to her defense, explaining very clearly how she is not the a**hole and that she should proceed with divorce proceedings, as advised by her company. Read through her post and the comments below and decide for yourself who is in the wrong. Although it's pretty clear what the answer is.

People Reveal What Caused Them To Quit Their Job On The Very First Day

Starting a new job can be really stressful. You don't know anyone, you might not be 100% clear on your duties, and it can just feel like everyone is waiting for you to mess up. Not every job starts out like this, but for some reason for every service industry job I've had, that description feels pretty spot on. It can take a while before you see the red flags in your job. You might be exploited for years before you realize, and that's the tea.

Here are some people who just knew day one, "This sh*t ain't for me."

Women Poke Fun At How Inaccurately Their Professions Are Portrayed In Media

Everything always looks better in the movies. Women have naturally blown-out hair, flawless skin, and super cool professions that they're crazy passionate about. In the media world, there's never a dull day at work, which we all know couldn't be farther from the truth. A Reddit user started a thread about what media gets wrong about people's jobs, and the women of Reddit really pulled through on this one. Scroll down to find out if everything you've been seeing in the movies has been one big lie. 

Reddit thread about how the media portrays professions inaccurately | thumbnail text - 2 drunkenknitter 1 day ago I'm a librarian. I have literally never touched a physical book in my job. I don't have cats. I'm not shy and withdrawn. The cardigans are pretty spot on though.

Husband Trolled For Telling Wife To 'F— Off' After Job Promotion

A healthy marriage is about a partnership. It means celebrating each other's successes — both professional and personal — and realizing that one person's achievement benefits both people in the relationship. But sometimes, the fragile male ego gets in the way, leaving some men unable to celebrate their wives' success, especially if they feel insecure about their accomplishments. Like this guy who posted on Reddit's Am I The A-hole, who couldn't handle the fact that his wife received a promotion at work while he was unemployed. Instead of celebrating her success, he accused her of "bragging" about it (which, of course, she wasn't, she was only hoping her husband would show her the basic and expected levels of pride and support). Of course, everyone accused him of toxic masculinity and called him a massive a**hole. Personally, I can't even believe this guy is real.

Serena Williams: Badass On The Tennis Court, Supermom At Home

Balancing a fulfilling career and being a great mom isn't an easy balance. It's a goal that society has pressured women into reaching, which is often unrealistic and unfair when the same isn't expected of men (#DoubleStandards). So it's refreshing to see someone like Serena Williams, the 39-year-old world-famous tennis champion, entrepreneur, and activist, smashing life at home as a mom and as a professional athlete on the tennis courts. We love strong, capable women, and Serena ticks all the boxes!
