I don't want Del Boy's bar in my house

DH bought me a surprise this week. A wall mounted set of pub optics. I'm not impressed. I like gin and sometimes vodka and I like to keep it hidden in the cupboard. I don't fucking want them on the wall!

He's upset I don't like it. It looks like Del Boy's living room and I want it gone!

You are so lucky! I want one!

I'm not sure what to advise but you win tread title of the day fgrin

I suspect this is a present for him, more than you.....

I would love this

I've always aspired to a globe bar too

Thing is it's dh house too so he's allowed things in there he wants but not pretending he bought it for you!

I hope they are carefully positioned so you can walk past and drink from them with no glass 😂

hotwaterbottler Sun 17-Dec-17 10:38:23

I agree with op. I think they look tatty

Whinesalot Sun 17-Dec-17 10:38:31

He gave you them early so that you can use them over Christmas?

That's a present for himself but justified as a surprise for you grin

Do you have a cupboard where you could attach them to the inside back wall of? Turn it into a booze cupboard? They are quite cool but I also wouldn’t want them on my living room wall.

I also think that might be reasonable sounds for divorce.

Bonnet de douche 🍹🍸

Think of it as Jack and Vera's bar, it was so much more classy than Delboy's santa

He seriously bought them for you? If so, thank him nicely and put them away somewhere.
It's not like it's something he bought for himself, right?

bunbunny Sun 17-Dec-17 10:41:50

Has he put them up?

Tell him that your christmas present to you is taking them down and putting a nice picture over the holes...

Be3Al2SiO36 Sun 17-Dec-17 10:42:54

Is he an alcoholic by any chance?

PinkHeart5914 Sun 17-Dec-17 10:44:04

I have some, although not on my wall they are in a cupboard and only come out when friends are round so they can help themselves- it’s a hit every time!

However the actual bar that Del Boy has in his flat, I would have in a heart beat

wizzywig Sun 17-Dec-17 10:44:29

Ooh picture please!

RJnomore1 Sun 17-Dec-17 10:44:45

That's a bit of a jump be3!

bunbunny Sun 17-Dec-17 10:45:40

Definitely ask him for the receipt so you can exchange them for a present you want - after all if they are supposed to be a present for you then that's reasonable. Even if you buy a proper drinks cupboard. Or perfume or a handbag or a ladder or whatever you want...

greendale17 Sun 17-Dec-17 10:48:25

Would be my worst nightmare too! I think it looks chavvy

Uumellmahaye Sun 17-Dec-17 10:51:36

Lovely jubbly!

TheSassyAssassin Sun 17-Dec-17 10:52:04

Is there anywhere for DH to think he's about lean on and then fall through? Might make him rethink its location...plus be priceless moment! winefgrin

Anymajordude Sun 17-Dec-17 10:54:01

Have you got the bamboo motif brown wallpaper too?

NapoleonsNose Sun 17-Dec-17 10:58:59

Yes they're already up. Screwed to the wall. I don't think they're really a present for me tbh.

We don't have bamboo flock wallpaper...yet. Maybe that's the next surprise!

He's put pink gin, gin and port in them. I will take a photo when he's not looking.
