Person Giggles Helplessly When a Mattress Spring Hits Boyfriend in the Wrong Place | “He Had Only Himself to Blame”
Love and laughter collided in a hilariously painful incident that unfolded in a couple's humble abode. In a Reddit post that had the internet in stitches, one person sought opinions on whether they were in the wrong for finding amusement in their boyfriend's misfortune involving a less-than-ideal mattress. Buckle up, folks because this story takes a surprising turn.
It all began with a simple request. The OP, who goes by the username u/SleepSprinter21, expressed their frustration with their boyfriend's rickety mattress. One rogue spring had already attacked their legs on multiple occasions, and they had had enough. They urged their boyfriend to replace the mattress but alas, their pleas fell on deaf ears. The boyfriend repeatedly promised to get a new one but never followed through. Uh-oh, we smell trouble on the horizon.
Fast forward to a fateful day when OP was enjoying a refreshing shower. Suddenly, they heard the boyfriend screaming out loud, in pain. Concerned about the boyfriend's well-being, OP hastily rinsed off and rushed to his aid. Seemed like it was the notorious spring seeking revenge and making the boyfriend wail! In a cruel twist of fate, the mischievous spring decided to make its presence known in a rather sensitive area—directly hitting the boyfriend's nether regions. Ouch! It was undoubtedly an excruciating experience, one that would make even the bravest among us cringe. Unable to contain their amusement, OP let out an uncontrollable giggle. Can you blame them? It was a classic case of irony meeting poetic justice.
However, the boyfriend didn't quite appreciate the humor in the situation. He was offended because OP had laughed at his "suffering." This led to a heated exchange about the boyfriend's lack of concern when the OP previously complained about the spring hurting their legs.
Reddit users assured the OP (and their boyfriend) that they are not at fault in the comments. "NTA. He probably should have listened to you. It was kind of a shitty thing to laugh at him but he ignored it when you were getting it from the mattress," wrote u/Timely-Ask-1327. u/EvilFinch hilariously remarked, "When I read it, I also must laugh a little. And I bet the spring even chuckled a little like boingighihiboing." u/ZeldLurr wrote, "He only had himself to blame." u/procivseth aptly said, "You weren't laughing at his suffering but his idiocy."
As for the couple in question, we hope they can find common ground and heal the wounds, both physical and emotional, caused by the vengeful spring. May their love and laughter triumph over mattresses and may they sleep soundly, free from future spring-loaded mishaps. And hopefully, the boyfriend bought a new mattress after all this.
