Fgs! Went shopping for tea, and bought dd a cream doughnut as a treat. They came in a pack of 2. She ate hers.

Dh came home and asked who the second one was for. I said mine in a jokey voice, not caring in the least whether I had it or not.

He then does a cats arse mouth, and says I should have bought * everyone* one. But they come in packs of 2, which would have meant a spare one. Anyway he has never shown any interest in them before. I said he could have it, as I didn't want it. but, no, he should have had his own.

So now he isn't talking to me. because of a Fucking doughnut! Is this for real?!

Eat it and enjoy if he wants to act like a child wink

It's never about the doughnut.

The twat just wants to be 'included'.

People get narked over all sorts of shite.

Has he had a bad day at work or something?

orangeandemons Thu 20-Jun-13 19:22:53

I've just eaten it...blush

I'd have done the same tbh, but I'm a childish petty cow smile

DP has now learned that if he brings home chocolate for himself and DS he'd better get some for me too smile

I take it he had a bad day at work?? Give him a hug, tell him you were only joking, you hadn't even thought about the other one as you'd bought one for DD but they came in a pack of two...

We can all be 'fucking ridiculous' on occasion - so unless he's usually this much of a prat, gloss over it, but given you are very surprised by his behaviour I assume he's usually a good bloke.

orangeandemons Thu 20-Jun-13 19:24:23

But I would have had to buy 4 of the bloody things, and then there would have been a spare one to squabble about.

He doesn't even like the fuckers anyway....

lightrain Thu 20-Jun-13 19:25:28

I understand! It was that you don't think of him when getting treats I think.

orangeandemons Thu 20-Jun-13 19:25:40

I've told him I was joking, and he could have it. No, he hasn't had a bad day at work, he's just being an arse...he doesn't like doughnuts

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Thu 20-Jun-13 19:25:46

OOps - you have eaten it?! LOL

Make him a brew or a wine and find another 'treat' for him - sounds like he needs a bit of TLC?!

lightrain Thu 20-Jun-13 19:25:56

Didn't think of him, not don't. Sorry.

Leave the bastard grin

This is the same guy, who, said that he didn't want a takeaway pizza on dds birthday, then when I ordered them, and he didn't have one, he got narky about that too.

But he didn't want one...

MortifiedAdams Thu 20-Jun-13 19:27:57

If he doesnt like donuts then he is being a PA arse.

I would have said "yours if you want it knowing he doesnt like them " or "its dds for tomorrow then ate it "

Call him on it? Ask him if he doesn't like donuts, what's his problem, while eating it. Slowly.

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Thu 20-Jun-13 19:28:19

How close to ordering it did you ask him? 5 minutes before - he needs to grow up, earlier in the day/week - I don't blame him. Did he want to do something different for dinner on DD's birthday?

burberryqueen Thu 20-Jun-13 19:28:28

he might have had low blood sugar levels, have had diabetic friends/family act v snappy and odd over food if this is the case.

Snazzywaitingforsummer Thu 20-Jun-13 19:28:36

Seriously, he doesn't actually like doughnuts but he still asked who it was for and got narky when you said 'Me'? shock Is he 6?

Just get on with your evening and cheerfully ignore him. I don't see the good in rewarding him for having a tantrum by fussing round him.

thenightsky Thu 20-Jun-13 19:29:28

You should have bought 3 packs, so you could all have 2 each grin

orangeandemons Thu 20-Jun-13 19:30:21

Yes, I am trying to ignore it...but I feel crap.

The pizza thing, we discussed it, I asked him about 10 minutes before ordering...he wasn't bothered. So I didn't get him one!

DrHolmes Thu 20-Jun-13 19:30:22

I'd have just halved the second one and split it between you both. smile

orangeandemons Thu 20-Jun-13 19:32:06

I told him that too. He didn't want to. I also offers him the entire thing, but he was too mardy to accept

Maybe he feels left out in general. If he didn't want a pizza you should've got him something he did like eg another takeaway.

Oh I don't know, I seem to be in the minority because I have a wee bit of sympathy for him. He was a bit narked because treats were bought and he didn't get one. I might make a bit of a fuss about that too.
