It is sad how even in the 21st century, women are treated less than men. And, that’s the reason why when a woman is with a man, she is ignored as it is assumed that man holds the power and the authority to make decisions. Recently, we stumbled over one such powerful thread. Krista Bellerina, a social media user, took to her account and shared how her repairman ignored her as soon as her husband walked in, and ultimately, she hired someone else to do the job.
Had a repairman over for a quote, and as I was explaining the issue, my husband walked in, and suddenly the repairman couldn’t see or hear me. But that’s okay, he had a nice conversation with my husband and I hired someone else to do the job.
But, what is even more hurting is how so many countless women shared similar stories in her comments section.
Went to buy appliances. Same thing happened as soon as hubs joined me. Hubs could see my growing anger. Walked out & hubs said—she did all the research & knows the products. Came in here to buy. We’re leaving because you couldn’t be bothered to speak to her respectfully. ❤️ him
LOL..I was shopping for 3 new vehicles. I was asking a lot of questions about a truck. I had a list in my head of what my husband wanted. Evidently, the salesman was irritated with my questions. He informed me to bring my husband. I informed him he just lost 3 sales and left.

I went to buy a car, told the sales people hubs had dementia. They still talked to him. After three visits I selected a car, said I would be paying, and title goes to me. They put his name as primary, me second. I was spitting mad.
We went to buy my car. I researched how many cylinders I wanted, transmission, fuel injection. Everything. Salesman asked my hubs how many cylinders he wanted. Hubs said “its her car, ask her” salesman looks at me and asked “what color interior you’d like??” 🤦🏽♀️
I went with my girl to pick her car up from the repair shop the other day. We were waiting in line together and when it was her turn she stepped to the counter and I was a step behind and to the side of her. The counter guy looked at me and said “how can I help you?”
My husband and I went to buy a Jeep. We knew the salesman and we’re doing fine when the closer butted in. Our friend left and the guy ignored me completely. I interrupted, made an offer to which he said to my husband, “Didn’t you teach your woman to not butt in?” We left.
Went to an orthopedic surgeon who was very condescending, only spoke to my husband, and said I shouldn’t use the treadmill anymore because “You’re a housewife who needs to walk at the grocery store or mall.” I changed doctors.
Years ago in a job interview for a FT job the dude asked what schedule my husband had, what his job was that made us move,how much he traveled. I gave him my husband’s number, told him he already had a job but feel free to call him for interview then left.
My husband once accompanied me to see my accountant. The one I hired for MY business which had nothing to do with my husband. He directed all questions to my husband and barely even made eye contact with me. He was also very quickly replaced. ✊🙌😌
Remind me of an electrician I had in for an estimate. He asked about my husband and was surprised I didn’t have one. Then he twice asked/marveled how I could have such a nice home without one, so I showed him my nice door.
