When it comes to getting ready in the morning, some women have a whole routine they like to follow, while others simply run a brush through their hair and they’re done.
But whatever they choose to do to make themselves feel good is totally up to them.
Despite liking the way she looked after doing all these things, her boyfriend kept complaining about the amount of time she spent in the bathroom each morning, so she decided to get revenge on him.
In a post on Reddit, the unnamed man revealed that his girlfriend had stopped making herself look presentable to get back at him for moaning.
He said: “My girlfriend takes forever in the bathroom. Upwards on one hour, sometimes closer to two.
“When I playfully ribbed her about this, she’d get irritated but nothing major. Three months ago I was playfully teasing her and she flipped out.
“She said she won’t do anything anymore and true to her word she hasn’t shaved, waxed or put on make-up since then and wears her hair looking like bedhead.”
The man relented and told his partner he gets her point, but she is still refusing to change her appearance – but not because of him, because she likes it.
She added her side of the story to his post and explained that actually she enjoyed not having to make as much effort each day.
“He keeps being a d*** about how long I take in the bathroom, so as he said, I quit things he didn’t even realise I was doing,” she wrote. “No make-up, no shaving/waxing, no brows, no waxing those moustache hairs, I have curly/frizzy hair so I stopped using product or straightening/curling my hair, no mani/pedi, no touching up or redoing my highlights.
“Do I look like a beast? Sure. Am I a comfy, smug beast? Hell yes.”
The woman goes on to add: “I’m continuing to do this whole thing because 1. It’s so much less effort for me. 2. It’s way cheaper and 3. Now that I stopped, I feel like…Why do I ever have to do all this s***. It’s unfair.”
She continues to say that if her boyfriend really wants her to meet a certain beauty standard he should pay half the costs – and pay extra for painful things like bikini waxes.
People on Reddit were quick to take the girlfriend’s side, agreeing that he should just “pay the beast”.
One person replied: “He brought the wrath of the beast upon himself and now he must pay the price for it.”
“You gotta pay the troll toll,” added a second.
