A woman recently turned to Reddit for advice after she accidentally revealed her friend’s plastic surgery “secret” to her husband. Her friend reacted furiously and they’ve been arguing ever since – even though she’d been extremely open about her surgery in the past. Was it really the woman’s fault for spilling the beans? You decide…
The Original Poster (OP) begins by explaining that her friend “got some work done” when they were in college. OP tells readers that everyone knew about it back then, and her friend had no problem talking about it to other people. In fact, she did it regularly…
Her Friend Always Spoke About It
Apparently, her friend always spoke about the procedure, even giving advice about “who to go to” and what to expect. The pair are now 30, and their “whole friend group knows.” They’re not the only ones, either. Her friend even tells new people she meets about it. However, OP was soon to find out that not everybody was in on the “secret”…
OP Visited Her Friend
Things took a turn for the worse when OP’s friend invited her to visit. Everything was going fine until they – OP, her friend, and her friend’s husband – started “reminiscing about the past” by “playing some old video tapes,” looking at old pictures, and so on. Her friend’s husband couldn’t help but notice something…
OP Revealed the Truth
Upon seeing images of his wife at a younger age, the husband commented, “She looks so different.” OP replied, saying, “Oh it must’ve been pre-surgery.” To which he said, “What surgery?”
OP’s Friend Had Lied
It turns out he didn’t know a thing about the surgery. OP found out later that her friend had “lied about getting work done,” and he’d believed her, meaning OP had broken the news to him. Unsurprisingly, perhaps, it was super awkward for the rest of the night.
OP’s Friend Wasn’t Impressed
When OP got home after the “big reveal,” she received a call from her friend. She was livid, saying OP shouldn’t have brought up the plastic surgery. OP didn’t back down though, saying “How could I have known you lied to him.” After all, she tells everyone else. If she didn’t want it brought up, she should’ve said something…
Her Friend Should’ve Told Her
OP believes her friend should have told her not to say anything before inviting her to the house and looking at old photos/footage. However, her friend obviously didn’t agree. She called OP a “terrible secret keeper” before hanging up.
What Does Reddit Think?
OP posted on Reddit because she wanted to know if she was in the wrong. Should she have stayed quiet? Was there anything she could’ve done differently? Or was it just a misunderstanding?
Reddit Was On OP’s Side
Most readers sided with OP, claiming that she wasn’t in the wrong because she couldn’t possibly “keep a secret when it was never a secret to begin with.” Some users simply told OP she did nothing wrong, while others admitted they would’ve done the same. One reader commented, “I would have assumed the same as you that her husband knew about the plastic surgery.”
OP’s Friend Is In The Wrong
Almost all the top comments on Reddit blamed OP’s friend for what happened. One Redditor wrote, “Not your fault she tells the whole village but not her husband.” Other users were more blunt, asking things like “What sort of psycho tells everyone about the work she had done and not her husband?”
What Do You Think?
So, what do you think about OP’s situation? Was she in the wrong for revealing her friend’s plastic surgery to her husband? Or is it her friend’s fault? Who should apologize? We’d love to know what you think in the comments.
