Is this a shitty thing to do?

DH had today off work, and needed the car. So he dropped me off at work (7mon car journey, 1hr+ walk along country lanes and hills) in morning and was to collect me at 4:30

I was looking every few minutes from around 4:20. My office looks onto the road.
It gets to 4:40, no sign. I WhatsApp him asking when he's due. Not read. I ring him, No answer. I start to get worried. Ring him on his work mobile, no answer. Eventually at 5:10, he WhatsApp me saying he was there are 4:25, and had waited 10 minutes, and then drove home...

I asked where he'd parked, because I had kept an eye out. He'd parked in the car park near reception, which is near my office, but you can't see it from there iyswim? (So how I was supposed to know he was there, is beyond me)

Reception was open and manned, so he could have asked them to ring me, as he didn't have his phone on him.

But no, he's being arsey because he thinks i should have been stood outside waiting for him at exactly 4:30...

Was that shitty of him to leave after 10 minutes?

Of course it was. Who does he think he is! A taxi.

Stripyhoglets1 Fri 30-Oct-20 18:41:44

Yes. It was shitty. He could have gone into reception.
How did you get home?

SavoyCabbage Fri 30-Oct-20 18:42:35

Do you believe him?

YorkieTheRabbit Fri 30-Oct-20 18:42:48

Yes, why didn’t he just ring or message you to say where he was parked? confused

It's shitty but i would have gone down at 4.30.

00100001 Fri 30-Oct-20 18:43:40

He didn't ring/message because he'd left his phone at home by accident.

What bizarre behaviour from him confused

Letsallscreamatthesistene Fri 30-Oct-20 18:43:50

Yes! Why couldnt he have just phoned you and said 'im outside'?! Bizarre behaviour tbh

slipperywhensparticus Fri 30-Oct-20 18:43:54

So you walked home? Because he was being a twat?

SierraHotel Fri 30-Oct-20 18:44:11

Yes it was shitty! It's not like you would have made your own way home is it, you were obviously still there. I would be fuming. How did you get home?

OneofPansPeople Fri 30-Oct-20 18:44:41

Bloody Hell that's appalling.

00100001 Fri 30-Oct-20 18:44:43

No, he came and picked me up again. Sorry.

What a twat he is OP. Hope he came back for you.

magicstar1 Fri 30-Oct-20 18:44:51

I hope he came back for you?

CastleOfDoom Fri 30-Oct-20 18:44:51

Well I'd be annoyed with him. Why couldn't he get out of the car and stand where you could see him?

CodenameVillanelle Fri 30-Oct-20 18:44:52

Unbelievably shitty. What an absolute wanker.

islockdownoveryet Fri 30-Oct-20 18:45:08

I'd be fuming , why didn't he ring you ?
Message , WhatsApp?
Hey I'm outside then you'd message back I'll be 2 mins .
It's a normal conversation happens everyday not sure why you dh didn't think to do this .
I've not said this before but LTB grin

Martinisarebetterdirty Fri 30-Oct-20 18:45:12

X post! Good! He owes you an apology too.

CodenameVillanelle Fri 30-Oct-20 18:45:31

Ok so he came back - maybe just a total div rather than a complete wanker. Was he apologetic?

islockdownoveryet Fri 30-Oct-20 18:46:05


He didn't ring/message because he'd left his phone at home by accident.

Well that's his own bloody fault like you said go into reception lazy sod .

00100001 Fri 30-Oct-20 18:46:55

I'm pissed off because I was worried about him being "missing" was I thought something bad had happened and tried to get hold of him.
And his reaction for me being "missing" is to fuck off and cop the strop angry

Tbh, I would have been waiting outside/at reception for him. You knew he was coming at 4.30. By the same chalk, he must have known you were still there unless you get lifts from a colleague?
