A husband and wife have an annual Christmas cookie-baking tradition with friends and family. The wife usually takes on the baking part, but this year she couldn't make it, so the husband took over. The husband went above and beyond, running drills and making optimizations. The result? A staggering five times more cookies than they usually make. The wife, however, was not impressed. She accused him of trying to upstage her and make her look bad. She called him an a-hole. But was he really? Read on to find out.

Man takes over Christmas cookie tradition, wife upset with results 🍪

A Christmas tradition turned into a competition between a husband and wife. The couple usually bakes and frosts holiday cookies together to give out to friends and family. But this year, the wife couldn't participate, so the husband decided to take over the baking duties. He turned the kitchen into a cookie-making factory, ran tests on the dough, and optimized production. He even made more cookies than they had ever made before. However, when the wife returned, she was unhappy with the results and accused him of trying to make her look bad. Despite the husband's efforts to make the best cookies possible, his wife felt embarrassed in front of their friends and family. Now, the husband is questioning if he was in the wrong. Was he being an a**hole for taking over the Christmas cookie tradition? Let's take a closer look at the situation and see if the husband is the A-hole in this scenario.
