Husband keeps spreadsheet of wife's excuses for not having sex with him

Yes, you read that correctly. Let the following be a lesson to breathe before you hit "send" and think before you post anything on the Internet. One man was so livid with his wife for their (in his opinion) lackluster sex life, he took to Excel to create a spreadsheet that outlined just how often they did it (or didn't). The format: Date/Sex?/Excuse Under "Sex?" he wrote "yes" or "no", to run with the corresponding date, and on the "no" days, he made it a point to write down his wife's excuse. They included gems such as, "I'm watching the show (Friends re-run);" and "I need a shower, I feel gross." Check out a snapshot of the spreadsheet, below. [HTML1] So, how exactly did this spreadsheet make it online? Well, it turns out that after a couple of months of building it, he decided it was time to share it with his wife to make a point. The man emailed the document to his wife while she was at an airport, ahead of a business trip. His wife, Reddit user throwwwwaway29, tried to contact him but couldn't, so she decided to do the next best thing, of course -- share an image of the spreadsheet on Reddit, with the following caption: "Husband sends a message to my work email...he's never done this, we always communicate in person or by text. I open it up and it's a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he won't miss me for the 10 days I'm gone. Attached is a SPREADSHEET of all the times he has tried to initiate sex since June 1st, with a column for my 'excuses.' .... According to his 'document,' we've only had sex 3 times in the last 7 weeks, out of 27 'attempts' on his part." Yikes! The spreadsheet, which has since been deleted from Reddit, has attracted a lot of attention and comments, most of which outline that the man should have approached the subject in a different way. One Reddit user, AwesomeNameGenerator, said, "Clearly this was extremely childish of him. But also clearly it's been something that has bothered him long enough that he decided to make a list about it. You both need to talk. You should send him a message that says when he is ready to talk he can contact you. He needs to learn better communication skills." There are three lessons to learn from this, dear readers: 1. Learn key ways to communicate face-to-face. We may live in a world dominated by technology, but never underestimate the power of communication in real life. 2. If you don't want your business to stay on the Internet forever and ever (because trust me, it will) ... don't share it! And especially not on Reddit, of all places. 3. Excel is a fantastic organization tool, isn't it?
