His Girlfriend Left The Door Open And His Pets Got Outside. He Was So Upset That He Yelled At Her.

This kind of stuff makes me simultaneously MAD and SAD.

Because I get all misty-eyed when I think about a pet getting let out of a house and having to fend for itself on the streets.

So, I can sympathize with this guy for getting so upset!

But did he act like an *******?

Get the story below and see what you think.

AITA for screaming at my girlfriend for leaving door open and letting all our animals out?

“So we had a great morning, I was laying in bed and I get up to grab something and I see the door wide open ( we live on 3rd floor apartment for some context).

Oh, no!

We have 2 cats and a dog and the dog was on porch barking and cats were nowhere to be found. I started yelling for her and she didn’t respond so I start freaking out and searching for the cats while yelling for her to come help.

I find one cat under stairs in our driveway within a minute, but couldn’t find the other cat. I go up on porch and start screaming for her with no response still, she was upstairs changing and came down, the cat was only in driveway and I screamed at her to learn to shut the door because this is the second time in a week she has left it open and the animals have gotten out.

She clearly doesn’t get it.

She acted like it was no big deal and that I was crazy for being upset about it, but it’s not like we live in a residential neighborhood we live right off an extremely busy main road where cars constantly go 45-50 mph. The bottom of stairs are only 10 feet from the road.

For some background I have extreme OCD about doors being closed and locked, I will leave the house and turn back around to make sure they are all locked if I didn’t triple check them.

It’s not healthy and is annoying sometimes but I genuinely feel like I’m having a panic attack if I don’t know if they are 100% locked and closed.

She should know this by now…

Our first fight (4 years ago) was because she left the outdoor gate open and let my first dog outside accidentally and he almost got out.

I feel bad and I don’t like that I screamed at her but my biggest fear is our animals getting out because of the main road and other variables that could happen. I apologized after I calmed down but she’s still upset with me and won’t come home.


Now let’s see what folks had to say about this.
