Many people thought that there would be a football reference at the end of the original poster's comment.
It was a fantasy football chat, after all. Alas, the only twist was the one in the original poster’s heart when he realized that his girlfriend would be late for dinner yet another time.
Although some people had argued otherwise, this person said that you might be able to train friends to be on time.
They said that their partner was also constantly late to events. One day the commenter left without his wife, and she started shaping up. He had to set a boundary: if you’re not ready, you miss out. It doesn’t seem as if they do this all the time, but only when there are hard deadlines or friends involved.
Someone else replied and warned that this is a good idea as long as it’s a learning opportunity and not a chance to be petty. It’s helpful if you’re communicating about why you’re upset, but not helpful if you’re just lashing out and starting a fight.
Some people thought the previous comment sounded more like a problem in a math book than a real-life group of friends.
If the original poster and his girlfriend were going to a movie at 9pm with Jack and Jill, but they were traveling on trains coming from different directions, would the girlfriend and boyfriend arrive at the same time? No, the girlfriend would still be late.
In all seriousness, it seems like the original poster decided to respectfully stand up for himself and set some boundaries. He said that he would try talking to her about how her actions affect him.
A few hours after the original poster wrote the message, he came back to the thread to see that his post was blowing up.
He also realized that he posted his comment in the wrong group. He edited his message and wrote that he actually got some good feedback.
He said, “I have more than enough feedback to know what to do. Also, thanks to the [Reddit] fantasy football community… although I didn’t mean to post here, I can see the bond this … gives us. I am also very sorry such a a rididculous post that has nothing to do with FF has made it to the top.”
And then, “…I’m really just a dude who was looking for relationship advice. Well, I clearly found it.”
