To think I hit my husband with a door in a perfectly reasonable fashion?

Dh came into the kitchen/diner from the living room and decided to pour a glass of wine. Rather than walk around the bench he opts to lean over the table pushed against the bench from the dining room side, resulting in him standing directly in front of the main door into the kitchen from the hallway pouring his wine.

I came downstairs and walked into the kitchen and hit him with the door, thoroughly splashing him in red wine too.

He was disgruntled when I politely enquired

"What the bleeding fuck are standing in front of the door for?"

I maintain if you stand consciously directly in front of a door you should not be surprised and disgruntled if another family member opens the door, and that he should walk the extra four foot into the kitchen and pour wine like a normal person.

He maintains it is perfectly acceptable to take the shortest route and that the door opener should be more careful.

I maintain that he was justly hit by a door for being a dimwit and I am wholly unreasonable.

<Disclaimer: my sympathy to those Mnetters that may have passed out from the sheer tedium of this post>

He got precisely what he deserved!

I like "What the bleeding fuck.............." which I intend to appropriate and use as my own from this moment hence!

was there anyway you could have seen him through the door?

could he hear you walking down the stairs?

The door is solid wood and no he wouldn't have heard me come down the stairs.

Perfectly reasonable. I was ironing in a galley kitchen, put the iron down and said "this is hot, be careful"
The reply was "obviously, what kind of idiot thinks it's cold"
As he leant over to put a teabag in the bin and singed his arm with a perfect V shape burn from the top of the iron

Is the wine ok?

sugar21 Mon 28-Sep-15 21:37:53

Why on earth was he standing behind a door BUT what is more concerning is the sheer awfulness of losing wine. This is extremely bad form

AnnaMarlowe Mon 28-Sep-15 21:38:40

I would suggest a truce and two glasses of wine.

fififolle Mon 28-Sep-15 21:39:01

White or red? Did you stain him?
I think that you are perfectly reasonable.

RainbowRoses Mon 28-Sep-15 21:41:32

I laughed, it's his own fault.

*its his own fault for not pouring you a glass.
If he had poured you both a glass, he would not of been standing there, it's Karma grin

Passmethecrisps Mon 28-Sep-15 21:43:25

Was he pouring your wine?

If so he is doubly daft for taking such risks

NorksAreMessy Mon 28-Sep-15 21:47:16

For that alone YANBU

HoneyDragon Mon 28-Sep-15 21:51:08

MY wine was in the kitchen properly. (I'm tee total mines magical boozeless wine)

HIS wine was in the stupid place.

I may see if I can do a diagram.

Hang on.

HoneyDragon Mon 28-Sep-15 22:00:24

The wine was fine, apart from what went on the floor and dog. We had a brief spell of mourning then resumed bickering like nine year olds debating.
