Have you ever had a run-in with someone who accused you of something you didn’t do? In this story, our protagonist Hank finds himself in a bizarre and unwarranted accusation of trying to steal another man’s girlfriend. Read on to find out what happens next.
They All Went Out to Dinner in Their Vintage Cars
Hank had been looking forward to this dinner with his wife, best friend, and his wife for weeks. They had planned to drive out to a local bar that was known for having fabulous seafood.
They all owned and restored various cars from the 1960s and 70s, and they loved taking a nice scenic drive together.
Hank was driving his 1963 Ford Galaxie 500, while his wife drove her 1967 Chevy Impala 4-door Supernatural clone. His buddy drove a ’73 Chevy Chevelle, and his wife drove a ’69 Dodge Charger RT.
They all parked together in a row within the business’s parking lot off to the side before heading in for a couple of beers and dinner.
She’d Left Her Glasses in the Car
After waiting for about 30 minutes, they finally received their table. However, Hank’s wife realized she had left her glasses in the car, and she needed them for the menu. Hank ran out to the cars to grab her keys.
While sitting in the driver’s seat of his wife’s car, digging around for her glasses, he heard a very enthusiastic “Hi!” He looked up to see a young woman in her early 20s with a big smile on her face.
Being used to owning the “Supernatural car,” he smiled a bit and said hi back. Immediately, the girl launched into a super cute and nerdy rant about how much she loved Supernatural and had never seen one of the cars in person.
Quickly texting his wife, “Your car did it again,” Hank started politely chatting with the woman as he popped the hood and let her look it over, letting her know they didn’t keep a “hunting kit” in the trunk.
A Female Passerby Enjoyed Looking at the Car
The conversation wasn’t flirty – the woman was just really enjoying the car. He explained that it was actually his wife’s car and pointed to his car next to it.
The girl asked for a photo with the car, which of course, was no problem since it was pretty regular for people to take pics with the car through the windows of businesses anyway.
As Hank was taking the photo, he heard a guy yell, “WTH – girl’s name-!” and saw him marching up with his chest puffed out.
As he handed the girl’s phone back to her, this guy jumped in his face and started outright screaming, “That is MY girl; who do you think you are trying to steal her?!”
Her Boyfriend Was a Mean Misogynist
The girl tried to explain that it was the Supernatural car, but what Hank gathered now was that her boyfriend cut her off, saying, “Shut up, – ‘misogynistic term-!’ Go sit in the damn truck.”
Not taking too kindly to how he spoke to this nice girl, Hank finally interjected quite loudly, if he’s honest, yelling at him and poking him in the chest that “-girl’s name- just liked my WIFE’S car, and I was showing it to her, not that it’s any of his damn business.
That she should leave this loser and never look back and how she wasn’t property.”
As Hank was telling this kid about himself, the kid shoved him, and he staggered and bounced off the car.
They Were in Disbelief
As he recollected himself and adjusted his clothing from the shove, you could see the (legally) carried pistol in his pants. Thankfully, this immediately made the guy turn tail and leave, though his girlfriend did follow.
The whole incident left Hank and his group in disbelief. They couldn’t believe that a simple conversation about a car had escalated into such a ridiculous and dangerous situation.
They talked about it throughout the meal, and Hank’s mind was racing with thoughts and emotions.
He couldn’t believe that some men still thought they could treat women like property and get away with it. He knew that it was a problem that many women face in relationships, and he wanted to speak out against it.
He Shared the Tale on Social Media
He decided to share his experience on social media, hoping that it would inspire other women to stand up for themselves and not accept this type of behavior from men.
The moral of the story is clear: possessiveness is never a positive trait. Whether it is in a romantic relationship or any other kind of social interaction, people should never feel like they belong to someone else.
Redditors enjoyed Hank’s story. One user said, “I give this story 10/10. 5 for what you did, 5 for your wife’s car.”
Have you ever witnessed toxic behavior in a relationship or intervened in a situation like Hank’s? What did you do?
