An anonymous Reddit user recently shared a post on the “Am I the A–hole” subreddit detailing a purported argument with his ex-girlfriend over a vacation they had previously planned to Hawaii.
In the now-viral post, he wrote that he insisted on going to Hawaii with his ex after paying for a considerable amount of their accommodations for her sister’s wedding.
The poster felt that he should be able to enjoy the trip despite the fact that he had initially intended to go for his ex’s sister’s wedding.
The original poster was deemed “Not the A–hole” by Reddit users, though some felt that the cost of the trip was a sunk cost after he decided to break things off with his ex.
Landis Bejar, lead therapist and founder of therapy practice AisleTalk, told us that it would likely be inappropriate for someone in the poster’s position to take the trip given the circumstances.
