He's been busted

Tonight I've been busy ebaying selling thems to get a bit of money together
Clicked on purchase history to see if I could find the details of a maternity dress I bought a few months ago, anyway
What do I find on purchase history ???

Dh has been buying coins for a computer game
Basically cheating
And to top it off he purchased these six DAYS after I have had a baby!
And had a c section !

My issues are
What a waste of money
What an idiot cheating
What a Pratt doing it six days after WE have just had a newborn baby and I've had major surgery having a c section

Kind of ironic too that I've seedling things to get some extra money and he's frittering it away on nonsense

DorrisM Sun 01-Dec-13 23:37:35

How much did he spend?

Anyfuckerisnotguilty Sun 01-Dec-13 23:37:36


Sorry selling

Anyfuckerisnotguilty Sun 01-Dec-13 23:38:05

Well it was only a few quid, it's not the cost it's more the point and the timing

AnotherWorld Sun 01-Dec-13 23:40:19

Erm. Can't help but think you are over reacting?

JeanSeberg Sun 01-Dec-13 23:41:09

A few quid? I don't get it.

Anyfuckerisnotguilty Sun 01-Dec-13 23:42:24

Three pounds to be exact

MarcelineTheVampireQueen Sun 01-Dec-13 23:43:07

Is there more to this? Cheating cos he bought game items? Why is it worse cos you had a baby?

Pancakeflipper Sun 01-Dec-13 23:43:07

Is this a wind up?

MartyrStewart Sun 01-Dec-13 23:43:18

Was it for WoW?

Cabrinha Sun 01-Dec-13 23:45:01

Um, do you have wider issues with him?
The world doesn't stop when you have a baby, and a CS is irrelevant, surely?
I used the internet after I gave birth. Dunno if I bought anything. Probably some baby related crap that I didn't need.
Fine you're trying to raise money... but how necessary is it, does he know about it?
It's a bit weird to get funny about cheating - his choice, it's just a game. Makes you sound so contemptuous of him, hence thinking there is more to it...?

Context is all.
If you're literally scraping for money for the meter, and have agreed together to seriously economise, he's taking the piss.

If this is just his pastime and his spends, it's his choice.

I totally don't get what the timing has to do with it.

If there's more to it, maybe repost more detail in Relationships?

Over reacting much, millions of women have CS but dont expect their partners to refrain from doing things. A few pounds from his salary on something that he enjoys is hardly cause for the outrage, name calling and a post on MN!

Anyfuckerisnotguilty Sun 01-Dec-13 23:47:18

It was fifa

Dh knows I'm posting this about him

Cabrinha Sun 01-Dec-13 23:48:42

Has he been playing this game when you needed post OP help with new baby, instead of helping you?
There has to be more to this.
I felt totally contemptuous of my ex when he signed up to a fiver a month from his account to RSPCA on doorstep.
Sounds ridiculous?
The reality: I was angry that he was sleeping with prostitutes. I couldn't help but snarl - was the collector a young female? (yes) And I had to rub in that he was stupid because not all would go to the charity.
The action was perfectly reasonable, but my anger was all on the backstory.

Hence thinking you have a backstory.

You don't like this man, if you accuse him like this of cheating at the game, I think.

MissMarplesBloomers Sun 01-Dec-13 23:51:56

Massively missing the point most of you.

Its not the OP being precious about having a CS its about her DH wasting money when she is scratting around trying to make a few pounds asthey are skint. Even £3 wasted when you are seriously broke is a lot.
For him to be doing it when they should both be quietly geting to know the new born & helping each other out is seriously taking the piss.

Anyfuckerisnotguilty Sun 01-Dec-13 23:52:04

Well I did feel like joking ŵith dh that he is supposed to be on paternity leave not Playstation leave

However I never thought he would waste money on silly coins

desperateforaholiday Sun 01-Dec-13 23:52:29

I think your overreacting, unless you are seriously struggling for cash then I don't see the problem.

AnotherWorld Sun 01-Dec-13 23:53:09

£3? Seriously?

Anyfuckerisnotguilty Sun 01-Dec-13 23:53:40

Ŵe are not seriously struggling for cash
But like most folk can't waste it

Pancakeflipper Sun 01-Dec-13 23:53:49

Did he spend a huge amount of time

Pancakeflipper Sun 01-Dec-13 23:55:55

Did he spend a huge amount of time playing computer games? Because if he did then that's the issue not £3.

MrsMoon76 Sun 01-Dec-13 23:56:53

If every single pound counts - as in it could make or break you then YANBU.

If that's not the case then YABVVVVVVU. Its £3.00.

There has to be more to this that you are so angry.

Anyfuckerisnotguilty Sun 01-Dec-13 23:56:54

Yes too much time playing his silly Playstation

He's sitting here now, he know sim posting this I'm telling him what I'm typing and what your replying
He thinks it's funny

Cabrinha Sun 01-Dec-13 23:57:07

MissMarples where does it say they're skint?! She just said she wanted to make some money! I'm well off, but frugal and like to make a bit of money on ebay.

And as for Playstation leave... again, what is the backstory, the context? If he's treating pat leave like a holiday whilst you struggle after an op - bad. If he's just having some leisure time... how is that different to you being on mumsnet?

I'm not trying to be mean, genuinely - I'm trying to get at the point, in case there's a real issue we can help you talk about. Because on what you've said so far, it's a bizarre over reaction.
