To expect DH to buy me more wine?

Long day with very active toddler. Had been fantasizing about a nice cool glass of white wine when he finally fell asleep. Plan seems to be coming together perfectly. Pour lovely wine, take three sips, DH leans across and spills it and then tries to insinuate that it is my fault for resting it on the (flat, wide) arm of the sofa.

Aibu to leave the bastard if he doesn't go and buy me another bottle?

There was only a wee bit left.

Two bottles.

My DH couldn't stand me 'balancing' things on the arms of the sofa. Major issue early in out relationship grin If it's a pet peeve of his, I wouldn't make him go.

Some context: his 'beer drawer' in the fridge is full to the brim...

No, tis a new peeve, born, methinks, of laziness! He balances his (aforementioned) beer bottles on the sofa arm all the time!

I am on maternity leave with a 9 month old. I totally, utterly feel your pain. I shuddered when I read what happened to your glass. Send him out right now for a replacement bottle. If he won't go, talk to a solicitor in the morning. It's the very definition of unreasonable behaviour.

I would request an entire wine cellar. Nothing is more upsetting than spilt wine!! :-(

YABVVVVVU. Surely he has fulfilled his spousal duty to keep the fridge well-stocked with cold white wine and therefore doesn't need to go out and buy more at all? wink

Oooh yes wine cellar

Hand him a shovel and tell him to start now, or alternatively go get some more wine

gloominousdoom Tue 28-Jul-15 19:52:14

He's seen reason smile

I am composing a short eulogy for the spilt wine whilst awaiting his return with its replacement.

Oh great outcome op.

My idiot smashed a whole bottle a whole bottle from the fridge and blamed me for stacking issues!

He walked 2 miles for more on pain of death as over limit. wink

Alas, we live in an apartment, so the wine cellar might not go down too well with the downstairs neighbours. I could sell the washing machine and convert the utility closet though. Doing the laundry in the local river is a small price to pay...

Definitely wine and chocolate as compensation.

The one and only time I've enjoyed spilling a glass of wine was when I was with my ex and fell asleep on his lap with the full glass in my hand........... it went ALL over the crotch of his jeans :D

Glad he's getting more for you.

WixingMords Tue 28-Jul-15 20:01:39

ooh I quite fancy a glass of cold white wine now.

<looks wistful>

BlackbirdOnTheWire Tue 28-Jul-15 20:01:48

Tbh, after a bad day with the DC, I would have taken the spilt wine as an excuse to go out myself to buy more! In fact, I'd probably have spilt it myself deliberately just to have the excuse...

StarsInTheNightSky Tue 28-Jul-15 20:06:35

YANBU, the rat bastard! Glad to hear he's doing the right thing wink.

I get you Blackbird - today I engineered an urgent reason to go to the supermarket when DH got home from work so that I could have a walk in peace. I shall have to look out for him trying the same next week when I am at work and he is enjoying the company of the children.

LuluJakey1 Tue 28-Jul-15 20:10:19

YANBU and he should come back with more than wine for blamng you.

WitchofScots Tue 28-Jul-15 20:11:56

He is being VVVU, he should immediately buy more wine and set to with buying your own personal winery in the country of your choice.

Twodogsandahooch Tue 28-Jul-15 20:14:08

I think resting the glass on the arm of the sofa would be a deal breaker for me.

Betty2012 Tue 28-Jul-15 20:18:28

OP if you have enough wine (from your makeshift wine cellar) you won't mind that your clothes smell a bit river-y. Thus reducing the stress from lack of wine and the stress from the washing and ironing mountain.

I think I should be one of them life gurus, Id make a bloody fortune wink

Think you need to invest in one of those wine fridges and keep it well stocked up so that these minor inconveniences can be easily ignored!!! Tons of wine equals a very happy marriage!!( hence my name!!!)
