darling hubby pitched a heavy night last night. Appeared at 3am, the worse for wear and barely coherent. I didn't want to come over like Mrs. Andy Capp, but gave him a hair dryer. No point really as he wasn't compos mentus.

4 hours later, time for upsiy daisy, and mr. Man is still, quite frankly pissed. Slurring words etc. never mind he totally stank. Standing there in his cycling gear, with the full intention of cycling through London! Pissed. As I tried to point this out to him, the mother of all tantrums kicks off. Ends up, me saying well you can stay elsewhere...and he runs up stairs to pack dd's suitcase and drive up north to daddy.

Eventually all calms down, and he is persuaded to take the train. How is this nagging. SHould I have let him go and be pizzaed across the Euston Road?

Cycling while under the influence is not allowed (see highway code) so no, YANBU!

Eeek... OP, do you talk like that to your husband? It's really infantilising and cringey.

If you're just having a rant... as you were. confused

threatened to call the police and get him breathlysed but he just rolled his eyes.

By the way are you Elizabeth Ponsonby the Bright Young thing?

I am yes grin

I can't get beyond the inexplicably annoying post to really see what you're saying..

I mean, yes technically he shouldn't be cycling accross London drunk BUT he is a grown man and I'm sure he knows what he can manage. Plus a good cycle and some fresh air would probably shift his hangover...

I would be annoyed if someone treated me the way you are treating your man...relax.. smile

It wasn't a hangover, he was pissed. He is a grown man, so I expect grown up and not adolescent behaviour.

Zookeeper, please, why is it inexplicably annoying?

lolaflores Fri 23-Sep-11 14:16:19

And did he not have a responsibility to other people on his way?

AvaLafff Fri 23-Sep-11 14:17:44

so he was willing to drink drive your kid?

hmm nice

I wouldn't like to cycle across London even totally alert. It's extremely dangerous. You did the right thing. He was being a bloody fool.

And, sometimes they have to be spoken to like this grin

zookeeper Fri 23-Sep-11 14:18:54

Actually it's very explicably annoying. It's the babyish expressions. Upsy daisy and Mr Man in one sentence, for example. All a bit Duchess of York.

Are you the bestest of friends when he is sober??

fanjobanjowanjo Fri 23-Sep-11 14:19:44

YANBU - it's against the law not to mention dangerous for his and other's safety.

YANBU for speaking to him the way you did as he was pissed!

TotemPole Fri 23-Sep-11 14:20:47

He wouldn't have been sober enough to take the bike or the car anywhere.

DIC of a pedal cycle is an offence and is an offence for a reason - because it's bloody dangerous !
YANBU to tear him off a strip for being foolhardy.

Tantrum. Sounds funny applied to an adult male.

lolaflores Fri 23-Sep-11 14:26:07

Babyish expression for an overgrown child. And we are best friends when he is not being a fool under the influence. Duchess of York? Is there one anymore. what annoys you is my writing style rather than the actual content? Would a deconstructed version suit you?

My husband came home in the early hours of this morning having drank a considerable amount of alcohol. Some 3 hours later, husband was still under the influence of all that he had consumed. I, as a concerned wife and human being asked him to not ride his bicycle to work, as I observed him to still be showing many signs of being drunk. He did not like my tone. He had an angry response. We disagreed. I felt myself to be rightfully concerned and did not appreciate his wilful lack of regard for anyone.

That do for ye

it is considerably more reader friendly ;)

Alibabaandthe80nappies Fri 23-Sep-11 14:29:05

Well it was easier to understand!

lolaflores Fri 23-Sep-11 14:32:33

Sorry folks got a bit of a wind under me in the original post. Glad that all made more sense then

zookeeper Fri 23-Sep-11 15:14:47

Aaaah. Now I get it. YANBU

OTheHugeRaveningWolef Fri 23-Sep-11 15:20:12

Arf at this thread.

OP, YANBU. Make sure he takes a shower before getting into bed tonight, he is bound to be ver ver stinky if he was that arseholed last night. grin
