A woman has lashed out at her husband saying he spends too long in the bathroom – as he makes several 45 minute trips a day.

Sharing her story anonymously, the woman said that ‘Justin’ spends “45 minutes for just ‘peeing’, four to five times a day”, and that she no longer knows what to do with her husband.

She said it was ‘irritating’ to lose him to his marathon toilet trips at home, but her temper boiled over after the pair went to a restaurant together.

The man left his wife to eat her meal alone as he spent almost an hour in the bathroom – and she became so irritated that she walked out and left him there.

What do you think about the husband’s trips? Let us know in the comments

Taking to Reddit, the woman said: “Before he went, I gently reminded him that we were at a restaurant therefore he shouldn’t take too long inside the restroom.

“He made a face and told me to knock it off because he’d be back in a minute.”

But he wasn’t back in a minute, and after around twenty minutes the woman started calling his phone – and even ventured into the men’s bathroom to check if he was alright.

He said he would be out momentarily and she returned to the table and began eating without him.

She continued: “I called his phone one last time after I was finished but he hung up on me. I was very upset I just asked the waitress to split the bill, paid, left a tip and walked out.

“He pitched a fit and gave a lecture about how selfish I was to abandon him there even though I called and he hung up but he said his battery died.

“He said he thought our meal was going to take time so he went to use the restroom and I should’ve waited for him a little longer after I notified him about the meal but I was too selfish.”

The woman said that she would never eat out with her husband again, and shared her story online in frustration – and soon other Reddit users were commenting on the post.

One said: “What the f*** is he doing? 1 – Addicted to video games on his phone, 2 – Addicted to porn on his phone / masturbating, 3 – Has serious troubles going to the bathroom and is very messy, 4 – Something else?

“Whatever it is, the issue needs to be addressed.”

And a second said: “Whichever it is, he’s not being 100 per cent honest with you, and you should not have to be forced to sit in a restaurant for 40+ minutes waiting for him to finish using the restroom.”

“Ask him to leave his phone,” wrote a third. “This should be a simple request. If he leaves it and it still takes as long, it is probably something physically wrong he doesn’t want to talk about and needs to go to the doctor.”
