Her Husband Is Always Helping Their Female Neighbors With Handyman Tasks, but When They Repeatedly Made Unwanted Advances, She Put Her Foot Down

A woman wrote to an online forum to share her frustrations about a neighborhood issue. Her husband is the only man on their street, so he’s constantly getting calls to fix various things. However, these women are also a little too obsessed with him.

The woman said, “I have a weird situation. It’s become very clear that my husband is the only man on our street.”

“The rest of the houses are entirely women,” she added. “There are a few single-mother houses, two houses of all-female roommates, one single woman, and even a lesbian couple.”

The woman said that she never even noticed this but that, over recent months, they’ve been getting lots of calls and texts for basic handyman jobs, like changing light bulbs, car problems, and so on.

Her husband is a nice guy. He’s from a culture that values helping women when they can, even if they aren’t related. The woman said that he feels bound to help people in the neighborhood.

The woman is out of work. He’s the only one working in their house right now, so he’s becoming less interested in these extra duties. He always makes her come with him because the women make him feel uncomfortable.

Outlandish behavior

What made things worse was that the women were obsessed with her husband. They flirted with him and told him they were always around if he got tired of his wife. Some had even sent him lewd photos.

The woman loves her husband and finds him attractive. But she said that she couldn’t understand why these women were tripping over themselves to get to him. She admitted that he’s no male model.

Her husband is uncomfortable with the situation. He asked his wife to intervene. She tried a subtle one-to-one approach, but it didn’t stop. So she set up a Zoom call.

Unsatisfactory outcome

The Zoom call did not go as planned. The women accused her of being selfish and told her that it was impossible to get a handyman these days. They dismissed her concerns and told her it was “harmless flirting.”

They also told her that if she “gave her husband some children,” she wouldn’t feel so threatened. She was furious.

Was she in the right?

The woman spoke to her own family, and they told her that she should let it go. However, she felt the women’s behavior was inappropriate. She reached out to an online forum to get a second opinion.

One poster said, “He’s not comfortable; you’re not comfortable; they’re too comfortable. Either they stop doing all this, or you can stop giving them visits.”

While another replied, “Good for you sticking up for your husband since it makes him uncomfortable. I would draw a firmer line and say that he is too busy. Also, I would find a local handyman and share that number with all of them anytime you get a text for work.”
