to be annoyed with DH?

We both use the same ebay account and the emails go to his addy. I can access his email but I dont because its his, he could access mine too but we both respect each others privacy.

So earlier he rang to tell me that an item i was watching that he knew i really need for the baby had ended an hour earlier. He knew it was ending before it had ended but didnt "get around" to calling me, and said it was my own fault for forgetting!

He knew I was having a hard time with the baby today as she is very windy and crying alot, and that I had to go to the supermarket and was getting the uniforms etc ready for next week, and keeping the kids amused at the same time. He is covering for his boss who is off this week, so working 15 hours shifts so I dont expect him to help, we are both having hard week but ffs! He could have said something to me sooner or bid on it for me, which he can do from work! But when I suggested that he said that I should have kept an eye on it and got a bit stroppy.

I suspect that the stroppiness was him feeling guilty when he realised what he could have done, but AIBU to still feel annoyed with him?!

YANBU but in the grand scheme of things it sounds like one of those petty arguments we all have when there's a small baby in the house!

Yes, YABabitU. It's Ebay. Whatever you wanted will be up for sale again tomorrow by someone else.

What was it you were bidding on?

I think you both sound tired and stressed and that this is probably one of those battles that you should just let go. It's not worth the fight, and I don't think he has any reason to feel guilty.

YABU. If you'd seen something that you wanted and you needed then why not bid on it when you saw it instead of waiting until the auction is about to end?

Thanks, I think!

I guess the main reason I am annoyed is that if I spotted that there was an auction he was watching that was about to end, I would either ring him or bid on it for him and he would get cross with me if I didnt.

But then, his are more important than mine as they are for DVDs and not inconsequential stuff I need for the baby.....grin

I will ask him to make sure he does that for me in future and not have a go, is that ok?

Snickers, because I am a sniper! I never ever bid until right at the end, I learnt that lesson years ago grin

use a sniping system, I use this

Takes all the stress out of sniping.

YAB a little bit U, get your ebay account set up with multiple email addresses or to your own email and manage it yourself. Anyone can pay by their paypal account, but you manage the emails. There is a text service too if it's really important?

Were you bidding on Snappy the Crocodile?

I always set my mobile alarm to go off 10 mins before the auction ends.
