They Work Remotely in Their Cramped House, but When She Bought a Pull-Down Desk for Their Bedroom, Her Husband Told Her She Was Invading His Space

A woman recently shared a story online of how she and her husband fought over where to hang a pull-down desk in their bedroom. She thinks it would work best near his dresser, while he says it should be beside the closet. But who is right?

The woman wrote, “My husband and I both work from home and recently purchased our first home. We moved in a little over a month ago.”

“We have a baby on the way, so we could not use the spare bedroom as our office,” she added. “We had enough room for a full desk in our living room, and I bought a Murphy desk for myself that we could hang in our bedroom.”

The woman put together the Murphy desk. However, it’s very heavy. She needed help to fix it to the wall so she could pull it down whenever she was working.

She told her husband that she needed assistance fixing it up to the wall. However, he kept putting it off for one reason or another.

The new house is a fixer-upper. The couple needed to have the windows replaced in their bedroom. While it was being done, the woman worked in the living room with her husband.

The woman’s laptop battery was low. She asked her husband if she could share his desk while she charged her computer.

Her husband refused. He told her to pull the charging cable to the couch and charge it from there. He seemed reluctant to share his personal space with her, but she let it go.

The next day, she asked her husband to hang her Murphy desk. She suggested a spot that was two feet away from his dresser. However, he refused because he believed it would hinder his access to his dresser. She disagreed.

Her husband told her that they should hang the desk under the air-con unit. The problem is that it’s a very short distance to their closet door.

Unreasonable reaction

She felt her husband was being unreasonable and told him so. He said she was just being grumpy and that she was trying to take over his personal space.

Who is wrong, and who is right?

The woman was sure her husband was in the wrong. However, she wrote to an online forum and asked for some alternative opinions.

The internet responded

One poster said, “Why does he get the living room desk? Go ahead and get yourself a full-size desk and set it up wherever you want. Doesn’t sound like he will move it if you do since he can’t be bothered to hang up the small desk you have now.”

While another quipped, “This is gonna be really hard to judge without a blueprint of the house, to be honest.”
