Whilst having a laughing conversation with my DH (and moving a bookcase) with him moaning about me nagging him into doing stuff, he had the cheek to say to me 'You're a nasty old woman'.


Please tell me I have grounds to LTB! I am NOT nasty. OR old. How very dare he!

My boyfriend called me a rabid dog once. He will never be allowed to live it down grin

Fox shock I hope he has been suitably grovelling for that! The cheeky fecker.

ForFoxsGlacierMints I just choked on my tea reading your post. Now that is grounds for LTB

Your jowly, swinging tummy! shock. What a dreadful thing to say!

A friend of mine (who's fairly trim, actually) once asked her DH, 'Does this outfit make me look fat?' and got the reply, 'It's no' the outfit that makes you look fat, hen. It's your great big arse and your saggy belly that does that'.....

My DH recently told me I reminded him of a cat....

When I made the mistake of enquiring why, he said it was my big jowly, swinging tummy that did it! shock

I am a size 12!

Perhaps he could weave me a bookcase I could move on my own? grin

Tell him he's a miserable old fart. He needs that basket weaving class grin

Basket weaving??? (In hysterics!). I would love to do that.....he's a huge Scot who works on a building site. I can just hear his comments on 'basket weaving'. grin.

Sign him up for SAGA holidays and then tell him You're not old enough!

I signed dp up for free basket weaving lessons that were being offered for the over 50's

Ask him why he's getting an old woman to help him move a bookcase.

My DP calls me an old witch sometimes, I rather like it grin

I'm 45 too and DH gets thumped for calling me old girl.

I'm not old and, technically as I was 19 when we first met, he's never been correct with the girl either.

i am all sweetness and light of course! smile

LOL @ apostropheuse. What a fab idea! No, he is too uncool to be hip with the kids and tell me I am 'wicked'.

I was being a 'nasty, old woman' for making him get off his backside and shift a bookcase with me, apparently. I was cruel and unkind for needing him to help me when he could have been snoring on the sofa.......

(Although he had had a long day at work. But I needed to shift the bookcase so that I could paint behind it, so I had to get him to help).

Tonight he came in and said, 'How's your day been, my wee darling?' so in true man fashion he has clearly forgotten that I was nasty to him last night! grin

I've had further thoughts on the matter.

Is he calling you nasty as in not nice, unpleasant etc.?

or alternatively...

Is it a compliment?. Maybe it's a cool way of saying you are wonderful! You say the opposite word to what you mean!

Just like the young people do. (If you can remember that far back!

But are you 'nasty' as well as 'old' Chisle? grin.

Chislemum Fri 11-Jan-13 09:26:17

grin - i am 39 and dh is 40. he calls me old and worse all the time and thinks it's an endearment.... i call him stuff back, but not sure this is an ideal situation. ;)

MammaTJ Fri 11-Jan-13 06:09:23

Many an OP has had a good roasting for calling some random an 'old woman', even if it is factual.

YANBU, LTB!! grin

Avuncular Fri 11-Jan-13 00:24:51

Term of endearment, OP. Unless the cap actually fits ....

Be thankful he feels so secure with you that he can get away with it.

Thanks for the midnight laugh.

Middle age may be cruel,but it is truth.

Such is life!

PomBearWithAnOFRS Thu 10-Jan-13 23:52:09

Well in that case, you need adverts for toupes, hairpieces, Elton John albums, and merkins OP grin Oh and gorgeous Philippino House Boys and male Au Pairs, and Chippendales concerts <drools a bit> grin

deleted203 Thu 10-Jan-13 23:50:11

Aggghhh.......middle aged is just as cruel! I still think of myself as vaguely 27 and young and sexy.

nannyof3 Thu 10-Jan-13 23:49:53

Divorce the bastard wink grin smile

deleted203 Thu 10-Jan-13 23:49:06

Pom I like your style! Just for Men and Grecian 2000 will be of sod all use to the bald old git, but they may just mock him for what he has lost.

I am planning evil revenge for his cruel and cutting words....

(I may not LTB, actually, as it might make him happy to lose such a 'nasty old woman'. I may stay forever and make him sorry he said it instead).

apostropheuse Thu 10-Jan-13 23:46:47

YANBU then if you're only 45. Definite grounds for divorce.

He really should have called you a middle aged woman.


PomBearWithAnOFRS Thu 10-Jan-13 23:44:59

LTB! And before you go, immac one of his eyebrows and the word "GIT" into his head <nods wisely> Oh and put itching powder in all his pants!
Or buy him some nice incontinence wear and get brochures for Stannah and trusses and mobility aids and Grecian 2000 and Just for Men and viagra tonic wine and Andrews liver salts and leave them all lying about grin
