To think that after 15 years (Yes that's half way to a second decade together) dh could let this one little moment of madness on my part go?

So 15 years ago as newly weds, very affectionate and loving etc etc we were staying with dh's parents for Christmas.
When getting ready to leave for the train home he asked me where the tickets were so he could see where our seats were reserved. We were standing in the hall of his parent's house with his mum and siblings all there too.

I replied - 'I don't know, you're the reservations rabbit' Meaning the cute and cuddly peson responsible for those particular tickets obviously <<cringe x 100>>

I think his brother may actually have been sick. 15 years later and dh is still bringing this up. Mentioned it today in fact.

AIBU to think he should let this one moment go now? Or am I just lucky he didn't request an immediate divorce? grin

He was clearly framed.

I am shock this is your thread NL.

Was your BIL sick because he thinks you have several rabbits? Reservation rabbit, rampant rabbit.....

Ah, you were pregnant? You were a Child-carrying Chihuahua?

That's a cheap shot Molehill.
There's a whole warren of possibilities open to you and you had to burrow around and come up with that one!

MolehillAlchemy Sun 20-Jan-13 19:48:29

Hmmm, maybe instead of a counsellor, you need someone with more a medical background. You could go see your Doc and ask him what's up?

if you were pregnant its ok. hormones etc. so long as you didnt name your baby baby badger

Ithaka I was thinking warm thoughts towards you till I got to the end of that post!

Molehill - I seem to recall (it is a VERY long time ago) that I said it very brightly and with a cheery smile on my face.

Is it any mitigation that I was pregnant at the time?

ithaka Sun 20-Jan-13 19:37:41

I am going to go against the tide here and say that I think this relationship can be saved - but you have to genuinely want to change and show that you are committed - perhaps you could visit a counselling capybara?

I sense a new MN phrase in the making...

MolehillAlchemy Sun 20-Jan-13 19:33:19

Coulda been worse. Imagine if you had said Weservations Wabbit!

Sanity I don't think you're taking this seriously!

Yes he had the tickets. Of course he had the tickets. He's very good with things like that which is why I made him the reservations rabbit.


I need help clearly.

He is duty bound to bring it up as often as he can, for the rest of your life, and to ensure it is carved elegantly on your headstone.

Think yourself lucky, that comment could have landed you with the role of divorced duckie.

That is awesome grin

He obviously wants this to be his nickname and keeps reminding you in the hope you call him it again. Go on you know you want to.

NorthernLurker Sun 20-Jan-13 19:07:45

You're right. I'm a bad person.

Especially as I'm now contemplating using 'bin bunny' when he comes home later. Jamie has enabled me to sink to a new low........

SanityClause Sun 20-Jan-13 19:03:52

You obviously haven't taken this seriously.

Really, it's up to you to show how sorry you are for such reprehensible behaviour.

Perhaps you should agree to some kind of counselling to show that you really are serious about saving this marriage?
