OP - YANBU but it has just made me realize how unreasonable I was when my OH got a promotion a couple of weeks ago. I think I responded in a similar way to your DH, I must have seemed like a real bitch to him. I acted like this because in my mind he'd been doing that job for months anyway - i know, I have seen him or not seen him at home enough as proof. It was only now he was being recognised for his good work. Are you sure your DH isn't guilty of doing the same thing as I did?
