Husband writes down all the excuses his wife uses to get out of sex. Epic.


Another epic spreadsheet of sex-refusal excuses is going viral — and this time, it was created by a woman.

The site Guyism has released a spreadsheet made by a wife who recorded all the times her husband refused sex, for reasons including “he was watching a Band of Brothers marathon” or “He was hungover”.

According to Guyism, the marriage eventually ended in divorce.

The spreadsheet follows a similar one going viral last week.

Hands up if you’ve ever used ‘I have to be up early’ as an excuse to not have sex?

What about ‘I’m too tired’? 

Come one… be honest. We’ve all been there. But has your partner ever made a note of all those excuses and then passively aggressively sent it to you via email?

Probably not…

Welcome to the world of Reddit user Throwaway29. She recently shared a photo of the excel spreadsheet her husband had sent her via email.

It was a document that lists all the times (27, to be precise) she’d said no to sex, along with all the excuses she’d used as she was about to head off for a 10-day work trip.

Here’s the photo:

In the Reddit thread the wife went on to say:

“Yesterday morning, while in a taxi on the way to the airport, Husband sends a message to my work email which is connected to my phone. 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”, using verbatim quotes of why I didn’t feel like having sex at that very moment.”

Throwaway29 said her husband “cut contact” after she posted the photo.

Do you ever use these excuses to get out of having sex? How would you feel if your partner recorded your excuses to get out of having sex?
