To be mad at DH for spoiling the evening?

It's been a long week for both of us. Long hours at work for him and me at home with dd1 (4) and dd2 (10 months).

DH rang earlier to say he's taking us out to dinner to our favourite Chinese restaurant which is in a huge shopping mall. I had an exchange to do for dd2's clothes and thought I'd get it sorted while we were there.

DH arrives home and we are all ready, we get to the restaurant in good spirits and DH comments on how we're going to have a nice fun evening after a long hard week. We eat and enjoy the meal. Then we walk into the shopping mall and i tell DH I'd like to do the exchange now to which he agrees.

We go to the shop and I start to look for some clothes I can exchange with and DH starts to look antsy but he's ok. I continue looking, and ask his opinion on a couple of outfits to which he gives helpful answers. I choose some clothes then say, I'm just going to take one last look on that side and then I'm done, and he gets really annoyed. He said, 'this is what you always do. This is what you did on holiday'. Then he sat there with a face on while I looked (for the whole of 2 minutes), and waited outside with dd1 while I did the exchange.

When I came out I was annoyed and he was in a big huff and we argued hmm

I'm really upset at how impatient he was being. I'd only been in the shop for a maximum of 20 minutes. I'm the one who usually does all the shopping and clothes buying and so what if he had to 'waste' 20 minutes of his precious time while I BOUGHT CLOTHES FOR OUR CHILD.

He said I always try to dominate every situation and that I ruined the plans, and we were supposed to be having family fun time. I asked him what plans and he said 'what's the fucking point in asking now'.

We drove home in silence (with dd1 chattering away to herself in the back) and have both come to bed without talking. hmm

TeaJunky Tue 01-Oct-13 00:09:41

TeaJunky Tue 01-Oct-13 00:08:41

Take him! I'll be the one laughing when he throws a strop in a shop (that rhymes and you WILL end up in a shop one day ) and doesn't buy you an Ice cream muwahahahahaha grin

Buzzardbird Mon 30-Sep-13 23:59:30

Oh tea, you mistake me for someone that read the thread and was telling the truth about drinking your cheap wine grin. Sober and totally disappointed in how you fell so easily for Howard. I'm going to run off with your dh and he will never be dragged around a shop again...bahahaha!

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 23:57:56

And you pay someone to iron shock

envyenvyenvyenvy

incapable of holding more than one thought at a time in my head at this time hence multiple posts. Dithering/faffing/forgetful me in full force

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 23:55:59

And gosh your kids don't cook for themselves either! I thought it was just me spoiling my 4 yr and 10 month old!

I can't believe we let it get to this sad

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 23:53:51

Harold how comes you just get me. I love you I really do you know!

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 23:52:47

Oh dear buzzard...all that cheap booze you've been guzzling at my free bar. sad

I chose the restaurant remember.

Classy bird me. blush

HaroldLloyd Netherlands Mon 30-Sep-13 23:51:09

Tea won't go to a restaurant unless its near a shop, she's a sneaky bint like that.

I take every penny off DP. He's a shadow of a man walking around with holes in his shoes.

And I pay someone to iron!

I am so in that tower.

If only these pesky kids would cook their own food I'd have it made!

Buzzardbird Mon 30-Sep-13 23:48:07

Anyway, tell your dh to take you to classier restaurants and then you wouldn't be able to shop! See, its his fault! ...hic!

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 23:47:29

Well today I have had a fuckload of entitlement ...DH gave me £100 as a gift to spend on whatever I fancied.

Moooooooooooooo grin

Might get some new nets for me ivory tower windows. Sparkly ones.

and wait to go choose them when we next go out for a meal gringringrin

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 23:44:04

Harold did you not get the gold embossed members card???

Fucking postie! How dare he. He's a full time working moron that's what he is ! grin

HaroldLloyd Netherlands Mon 30-Sep-13 22:16:16

I want to be entitled. Poor DP has been out all day bringing home the bacon and now washing dishes, whilst I pretend to work and piss about on MN.

I want new clothes and an ice cream as well, and some wine for my ivory tower.

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 22:14:37

Let's be pissed, entitled, no-school-ru moos together grin

says she who is teetotal but has still handed out a shocking amount of alcohol in this thread gringrin

Buzzardbird Mon 30-Sep-13 21:13:48

Hee hee, I wish grin might have a glass to celebrate no school run in the morning though so my posts might just get more obscure. Pass me the wine Op will yer?

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 18:21:45

Buzzard are you a little bit pissed on a Monday evening ? grin

Buzzardbird Mon 30-Sep-13 18:19:23

Your wine is like your nights out OP, boring and missing the point grin

TeaJunky Mon 30-Sep-13 18:01:47

Haaaaaa saycool grin

Piss off then if you don't want me drinks! winewinegrin

Buzzardbird Mon 30-Sep-13 18:01:34

I would but he never asks me to sad

SayCoolNowSayWhip Mon 30-Sep-13 17:56:32

Depends on the dentist

yes, and you don't have to take your clothes off

pixwix Mon 30-Sep-13 17:29:16

Heart - am with you - would rather go to the dentist meself. I like my dentist, and he makes me laugh.

It may be a stereotype, but I have never personally known a heterosexual man who enjoyed clothes shopping as a leisure activity. I've seen them on documentaries though, so apparently they do exist.

Mind you I'm a (mainly) heterosexual woman and I also think clothes shopping is the work of the devil. It took DP a few months of being with me before he'd believe I really meant that. But I've had a fair few (female) friends who feel the same way as me, and it's been heartening to hear from so many on this thread too.

Fluorescent strip lighting, sneering shop assistants, queues for sweaty, scratchy, filthy changing rooms with hideously unflattering mirrors, torn stickers sticking to your legs, those weird radio stations that only play in clothes shops with knock-off versions of Top RnB Classics 2011 on a loop, things on the wrong hangers, hangers falling on the floor, buggies blocking your path, queueing again for the tills, and at the end the opportunity to part with hard-earned cash for some little bit of fabric - yeah, what's not to love? hmm
