Lovely presents from dh today, but aibu and a bit of a cow to be disappointed that the receipt shows that he just ran in n grabbed my pressies at 6pm on the wy home from work?

It's not as though he didn't know it was VD, it's advertised everywhere for months.

DH bought me a ard in M & S yesterday , after I gave him the stamped voucher that gives you a free card when you've bought 8 cards . Told him to get me the most expensive one he could find , cos it's the free one .
And he found a lovely card ( DD helped , I've trained her well )
What was the problem ? You had a lovely gift , didn't you ?

Even humour doesn't cut it OP

Bad try again when you've hit 15.

Grown ups don't actually do Valentine's Day, do they?

I thought the same as Curlyhaired when I opened the thread, so I am a tad disappointed, tbh!

Fuel marks for him swerving it is some excellent pun-age.

What was the poor bastard supposed to do?

DP came home with some nice tulips from Tesco and bottle of wine. Am now pissed on Prosseco ( cheap date)

Give over

Have you said anything to him?

Dannilion Thu 14-Feb-13 21:54:05

Did you get his gift in an appropriate timeframe?

Actually, what would be an appropriate timeframe for you? Some people are impossible to please or lying.

Feeling very cheated by this thread title angry. Clicked through expecting at least "diamond earrings for OW V Day pressie, petrol station flowers for DW" but no...

MyHeadWasInTheSandNowNot Thu 14-Feb-13 21:54:07

Come on guys, wise up....

He left it out on the Shellf...

So fuel marks...

No being on a total downer about something so petty and insignificant would not even cross my mind

I bought DH's card at 7pm on the way home from DS's swimming lesson.

(This is a one-upmanship thread, isn't it?)

Did your BP really go up?

WeepyAndWounded Thu 14-Feb-13 21:55:16

I said I feel disappointed by his lack of forethought on the forecourt.

WorraLiberty Thu 14-Feb-13 21:56:21

Did he park in a P&C space and use the shop's disabled toilet before eventually remembering to buy your gifts?

<< Desperately trying to find something to blame the guy for >>

Your high maintenance aren't you.. :-)

Good grief.

WeepyAndWounded Thu 14-Feb-13 21:56:42

Yes, my BP has been raised, thinkinh about him being a chump at the pump.

"really saddened"

Normally hate responses that say get some perspective there are people starving as they are so random and unhelpful, but just this need to get some perspective.
