DH was supposed to get the furnace sorted. He did not, so we can't turn it on yet.

This morning it's 35 F, which I think is 2 or so your temp?

It's cold . WIBU to warm myself by shouting at him and gesturing wildly?

Thanks for letting my have a whine! smile

To want to is totally normal.

Whether or not to do it will depend on whether it'll actually spur him to action or make things worse - both in terms of getting this job done and in how he will react to further maintenance requests.

I think I'd be tempted to snuggle on the sofa (alone!) under a blanket and with a hot water bottle, make sad puppy dog eyes and keep saying how I was feeling the cold.

Shout and gesture UNTIL he gets the furnace sorted. You will be warm and he will learn a valuable lesson smile

You Are Not Being Unreasonable because shrieking, jumping around, gesticulating, ranting and being incandesceny with fury will keep you much warmer.

Seething quietly in frustration just won't do the trick. Have you considered toasting him slowly over an open fire?

Incandescent. I cannot see my keyboard clearly as I am too vain to put my new reading glasses on.

Apparently my brother needs to check it over or something. hmm

I would love nothing more than to snuggle up but DS is insisting I interact with him. Demanding child!

Simply sort it by: withholding ALL nourishment, sexual favours, washing and ironing etc. until he has sorted it. Men take no notice until it affects them directly!

YABU to go screechy

YANBU to wrap up in as many blankets as possible and insit that you must be brought warm drinks and cannot move until he sorts out the heat.
