AIBU or my partner? Light-hearted

Hoping you can tell if I'm in the right or was my DP?

I was on EBay last night flicking through some items (DP collects certain things so I always keep an eye out).

When looking at one listing, in the pictures it showed various attachments. However, the attachments were resting on work rotas. The seller clearly had a gardening business as there was a spreadsheet with names, addresses, work to be carried out and times the occupants would want the job doing.

I was taken aback by this and I messaged the seller to let them know that this information could be seen.
I sent him an email and he emailed me to thank me saying he hadn't realised.

My partner thinks I was unreasonable as it wasn't my business and he thinks I was just interfering. I think he was BU.

I think you were right, observant and helpful. Maybe you'll get a discount next time you buy your partner something 😜

I think you were being helpful. If the seller thought you were being interfering he'd have either ignored your message or sent you a snotty reply.

No, YWNBU - it was a nice thing to do. The people on the rotas wouldn't have been too pleased, I am sure - you've saved their possible concerns and you have saved the seller from possible complaints.

You were just being helpful, like if you'd seen someone drip something in the street and pointed it out to them. You could not "interfere" and they'd lose their glove or whatever, but you were just being nice.
