Guy jealously tells ‘flirty’ barista his girlfriend is spoken for. The barista is gay
Feeling jealousy in a relationship isn’t an unusual phenomenon – but there’s a difference between feeling it and acting on it.
This has been proven in spectacular fashion by a jealous Reddit-user, who unfortunately thought that warning a barista to stop flirting with his girlfriend was a good idea. The twist? The barista is gay.
The jealous boyfriend wrote about the incident in a sub-Reddit called “Am I The A**hole?”
Reddit user claimed he trusts his girlfriend ‘entirely’ before his possessive stunt.
The guy, who is 25-years-old, is in a relationship with a 23-year-old bisexual woman, and wrote in his post that she always goes to the same coffee shop where she is served by a “beautiful” barista. He wrote that his girlfriend had confirmed that she “wasn’t attracted to him”, but had said he was “stunning and a very pretty man”.
He goes on to say that he trusts his girlfriend “entirely” and knows she “wouldn’t do anything” with the barista – but he goes on to quickly disprove his faith in her.
By the way pal, she has a boyfriend and it’s me. The guy kinda laughed and I said that I appreciate he’s doing his job but to lay off her as in my eyes, I think he was flirting.
In the next paragraph, the Reddit user wrote: “I went in the other day and straight away knew who she meant as this gorgeous long haired dude took my order. I ordered her favourite drink as she was at home and I s**t you not he said, ‘Oh is that for Emma?’ And when I looked shocked he went, ‘I just know that’s her usual, no one else really orders it.’”
“I said, ‘Yes, it is but by the way pal, she has a boyfriend and it’s me.’ The guy kinda laughed and I said that I appreciate he’s doing his job but to lay off her as ,in my eyes, I think he was flirting. He laughed again and said sure thing.”
His girlfriend found out about his jealousy from the barista and was not impressed.
To make matters worse, the guy decided not to tell his girlfriend about the incident – but she found out when she went to get coffee a few days later and the barista confessed all. She came home “raging” and asked why he decided to embarrass her.
His girlfriend revealed that the cute barista is gay – a fact she already knew – and said she knows his boyfriend. Even more bizarrely, the jealous boyfriend tries to claim that the whole incident was simply a “fair, innocent” mistake on his part. His girlfriend now won’t speak to him “without making sly digs”.
Other Reddit users overwhelmingly told him that he was the a**hole – and not the barista or his girlfriend.
One user commented: “He knew her order and was being friendly, because that’s literally his job. Apologise to your girlfriend for your insecurities and also the barista next time you’re in there for acting like a dick.”
Relationships can be tricky at the best of times, but in summary, nobody likes a jealous and possessive boyfriend.
