Going out to mates wedding. Public transport is shite and expensive. I could get a bus home at either 9.15 or 11. it would take over an hour to do a 20 minute journey and cost best part of £10.
bus station is in a shite area of town. I would be alone.
'D'H helpfully pointed out that at least I could get a return ticket to which I may have raised my voice a touch and pointed out that I thought it a bit mean of him to not even offer to give me a lift there - let alone home again.
I have frequently offered to pick up a drunken 'D'H to save on untrustworthy buses or expensive taxis.
I am inscensed that he hasn't even offered to come and pick me up. I am flabbergasted that he hasn't offered to drop me off.
AIU to expect the offer of a lift? or is he U to not?
children are big enough to be left. Squeeky - yes, that is what he is planning but lets face it he does that every saturday evening regardless of whether i'm there or not. when transport has been difficult i have forgone the luxury of a couple of glasses in order to pick him up.
I am severely pissed off that he didn't even offer and when i suggested it might have been nice got all defensive and cross about it. he is a git.
wedding is for a work colleague - small do - he doesn't know them.
he helpfully googled the bus time for me knowing exactly what the bus station is like and knowing i would be alone, slightly pissed, in the middle of the night, without even thinking it would be a nice idea to offer to pick me up. why? why would he not see that?
And in the interests of balance, I'll point out that I would of course do the same for him. And will be tonight, as it happens, picking him up from the station at midnight. Even though ordinarily I'd be in bed asleep. It's not that far to walk, but he's had a long day and his knee is playing up a bit so it's a small thing to do. If you care about someone, that is.
