AIBU to not find it funny?

I bought myself a really nice (I think) checked shirt last weekend. First time I put it on OH starts singing "I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok". Managed to ignore it. Wore it again yesterday and sure enough, he starts singing that line from the lumberjack song several times over the course of the morning, obviously trying to wind me up & thinking it's hilarious. In the end I told him to maybe think up an original, funny joke & that I didn't find it funny. He then got in a strop & said I should take him as he is & not try to change him. Who was in the right/wrong? Thanks in advance

I looked at a lovely checked shirt yesterday then turned to DH and said "would you sing the lumberjack song?"

"Yes" he said.

Popped the shirt back & walked away...

My DH did the same to me! shock I thought my shirt enhanced my femininity because it was masculine looking but no...apparently it made me look "butch". sad angry

I got "cant touch this" off dh when i wore harem trousers a few year ago.

And called where's wally in my striped dress.

I find it funny tbh.

I'd say

"I cant be a lumberjack, I only handle small wood"

Amd then walk off grin

I got 'Rowr. Dennis the Menace' this morning when I put on my new navy and purple striped jumper.

I love checked shirts! My DH doesn't, he does the lumberjack thing. angry I just pinch his bottom and tell him he's a numpty.

BTW, I think your DH is a bit hurt about the fact that you don't appreciate his humour - I agree with the others, turn it around on him and see how he likes it!

Tell us what sort of things he wears. Then we can tell you what to sing.

He sounds like a laugh, lighten up ffs

I think you're being a wee bit over sensitive tbh. Treat him like a toddler and ignore the bad behaviourwink.

My dh hums the Darth Vader music from Star Wars whenever I wear a certain pair of black boots. Annoying but also amusing smile.

Checked shirts are cool.

The lumberjack song is cool.

What's to get upset about?

When I wear my really high shoes DH calls me Avaline ( from bread)
That is obviously not a complement!

Personally I would turn the tables, tie it at the waist wear a little denim mini skirt/denim shorts and put your hair in bunches (if long enough). My OH would go crazy (in a good way) for me. Then at least the next time you wear it he'll have cheeky thoughts ;)

go and do a chainsaw course (surprisingly good fun) get the trousers , boots, and mask, and the next time he he starts singing, start the chainsaw and look annoyed, he won't do it again.

DP gets called Charlie Brown every time he wears a particular striped shirt. To be honest I hate the shirt with a passion, so may be trying to annoy him in to not wearing it anymore. Either humor the man, or show up with an axe.

Lighten up.

I have a checked shirt which DH thinks I'm sexy in for some reason. I mostly wear it when I'm cleaning the house and haven't bothered showering confused

Monty Python bores are legitimate targets for murder in my book.

I have a green top I really liked. Until DH kept saying I looked like gumby. Now I hardly wear it. He has put me off it.

Sometimes we need our nearest and dearest to ground us. They're the ones who tell us the truth, when anyone else would tell white lies and say "Oh you look nice in that shirt," whilst actually thinking "I wish I was a girly, just like my dear papa ..."


A couple of years ago I bought what I thought was a lovely pair of jammies. First night I wore them, DH asked if I was joining the circus, and DD asked if I was going to a fancy dress party. hmm Both entirely separately. sad

The jammies went to the charity shop next day. Neither DH nor DD ever noticed that I never wore them again! Gits.

Looking back, they were right! The jammies were heinous. grin

I have 2 checked shirts that I wear for gardening.
The DSs call them my scarecrow shirts.
Much to DH's amusement.
