Recently their friend asked for their credit card. When they asked why, he said he wanted to go buy some food. They gave him their credit card but wanted it back when he got home.

When he returned and the VP wanted their card back, he thought he should keep it so he could start paying for stuff on behalf of the VP. They were uncomfortable with his statement, saying they would “prefer not to burden him” with financial situations. He still refused, saying they should trust him and that he “swore” he wouldn’t use it.

The OP said: “The next morning I canceled and then registered a new one. He must have tried to use it because he called and was confused as to why the credit card was no longer valid. I told him it is because i canceled it and registered a new one he lost it and started berating me saying he couldn’t believe i had this level of pettiness and kept going on about how i don’t trust him with my finances and how financially abuse I’ve become lately I hung up.’

“The argument continued at home and he called me paranoid and unreasonable and stuff. Then he started to keep me cool and sulk for days. I really feel like I hurt his feelings and showed an amount of distrust of him,” they concluded. they. .

Redditor Comments

“[Not the a**hole]. He “swore he wouldn’t spend a dime on it,” followed by “the next day he must have tried to use it.” Your instinct was excellent, as was your decisive and immediate action. You know what he wanted was wrong. Trust yourself,” said u/Reenvisage, who received the top comment, with more than 11,000 votes.

“[Not the a**hole]. Maybe time to say goodbye to your boyfriend,’ you/meanchrochethook remarked.

“[Not the a**hole]. ‘To trust’??? It’s no use calling him “trust” after literally stealing your credit card and trying to use it,” u/frogmuffins said.

“He found out that you canceled it because he was trying to use it, even though he promised he wouldn’t, but you’re the paranoid, right? [Not the a**hole]. He’s definitely lighting you too,” remarked/maria_puente87.

You/dontwannadoittoday exclaimed, “[Not the a**hole] but I really hope you evaluate your relationship. This is certainly a reason for divorce. He is fooling you by claiming that you are abusing him financially. He uses you and then gets a seizure when you cut off his resources because apparently he’s a lazy bum who sucks you dry!”
