To want to smack him round the head.

DH rushing to get out the house, running late (his own fault) and getting stressed out and grumpy. We needed to have a conversation about what he was buying when he was out and planning the work week. He was getting impatient with me because I wasn't sure about something and taking my time deciding. Once I'd figured it out I started to speak he STUCK HIS FINGERS IN HIS EARS and said he didn't want to hear it.
He was immediately told that he was being very disrespectful which started him off on a rant about how much he had to do and the time frame and I was holding him up and stressing him out. So he's left the house now and I'm torn between pulling him up about it later or just letting it go........btw this is normal behaviour for him but I'm completely sick of it.

He actually stuck his fingers in his ears like a child?! WTF?! I would absolutely bring it up with him when he gets back, how bloody childish and disrespectful!
If he had lots to do he should have managed his time better! Men can be massive dicks sometimes.

Well it was certainly very immature. Your DH needs to get ready earlier but you both have a responsibility to choose times to discuss the running of the household. When someone is getting ready to leave is not a wise choice, I can see why he was getting annoyed with you .

I'd be telling DH he was immature but also that you both need to work on being more organised !

The poor time management was all him. We run a business together and at the weekend he plans the work week and then "shops" for it. He chose to spent all day yesterday on a hobby.......and I mean ALL day. He did NOTHING else. No chores or housework. Just his hobby. He also got up this morning and spent more time on hobby. THEN started planning for work, which didn't leave him much time to do it. He also does all the laundry which has mounted into epic proportions so he asked if I could do some for him. Then moaned about that because I chose to wash things on an eco setting and hang up some to dry instead of tumble drying it all.
All really petty stuff but he's really pissing me off right now. Fingers in the ears could be the straw that broke the camels back.
