I’m a Grab driver in Singapore. I’ve been married for 8 years, and for most of those years, my wife has been making a lot of “on-bed” demands.
She’s always asking me to do things to her every night, I am reaching my 40s. I am no longer a young man that has the power to do it everyday.
It’s gotten to the point where I feel like she’s taking advantage of me and I just don’t want to do any of it anymore. That’s why I started driving part-time for Grab. I figured it would be a way to make some extra money and give me some time away from my wife’s demands.
At first, I was only driving at night, when my wife was sleeping. That way, I didn’t have to worry about her knowing I was out working. But then I realized that I actually enjoyed the job and I wanted to do it more often. I started driving during the day as well, while my wife was at work. That way, I was able to make more money and I was also able to avoid her demands.
I soon realized that driving for Grab was more than just a way to make money. It was also a way to give me some much-needed time away from my wife. I was able to focus on something other than her demands, and it was a great way to de-stress. I also got to meet some really interesting people on my trips, and I even made some friends.
Driving for Grab also gave me some financial independence. I was able to save up some extra money and use it for things like vacations or small investments. I was able to make my own decisions and felt like I had control over my own life.
But she has been complaining that I have been coming home late and started to accuse me of cheating. I even showed her the trip records on my Grab app to prove that I am really working.
But deep down she doesn’t know I am just trying to avoid her demands at night.
