I can't speak for the other lad, but I'd expect the same courtesy from anyone I was giving a lift to.
And I'm only going from OP's story, but it sounds like he didn't even send her a "hurry up, love" text, he just sat in his car for half an hour watching her through the window. To me that warrants derision, no matter if he was waiting for his pal, his wife, his mum or his dog. There's accommodating and then there's daft. I chose to mock him because this is /101/ and I like to rant.
Every single time someone suggests you shouldn't tolerate loads bollocks from your missus, the guaranteed response, online at least, is to call them sexist. It's immediately assumed that the poster is quite happy to tolerate the same treatment from a man, and that they're just 'alphas' who think they're above women. All because they suggested a woman was being unreasonable. Most of the time, and certainly in this thread, nobody has ever said the line of thinking was specific to women, but for some reason it's assumed. I'm not fucking waiting for any cunt for half an hour when they presumably told me they'd be ready when I arrived. You can call me a dickhead all you like for that if you want (I'd still disagree though), but not a sexist.
If anyone in this thread had said "you have to show your woman who's boss" you might have a point, but all they've really said is "don't be a doormat". That is in no way gender specific. The "mens rights" bollocks that goes on over the web is pathetic, silly, and wrong, but I can absolutely see why people end up buying into it - responses like this. People try to stand up for themselves in a relationship, or don't think their girlfriend is treating them fairly, and they're immediately labelled an abhorrent woman beater. It's tragic and certainly not helping the progression of equality, as it fosters resent in otherwise well meaning people.
