And to then phone the landline when he doesn't answer his mobile?

Not in the slightest. I once phoned DH from the bedroom to ask him to bring me biscuits and a cup of tea. In my defence I'd recently given birth, but I suspect I'd probably have done it anyway just to upset him.

Yes, if you woke the baby.

Not if you'd stuck to silent methods.

YABU. Why call him and risk breaking your phone when you can just jingle the bell instead?

YANBU.... I do this kind of thing often.

I would practise a sharp, piercing whistle, OP. That should speed up service.

You'd actually be wrong not to.

Texting is quieter.

I always text/phone DH from upstairs to bring me biscuits/glass of milk etc.

YANBU in the slightest

Absolutely not. I text my dp from bed to come and switch the bedroom light off. Yes I am a lazy cow

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Fri 02-Oct-15 20:34:40

Haven't you got a little bell to summon him?

YABU for even thinking of having to ask.

YABU. You should sack him for not having covered this dilemma covered without you having to ask.

Love this! YANBU wine

YANBU I use messenger though as DH gets notifications from that so can't ignore me, I often ask for drinks etc, I sometimes msg him saying that I am in bed and how much I want him to join me, then I just ask him to turn the tv down/ turn landing light off etc blush

Are you bollocks - what's the point of living in 2015 if you can't enjoy the perks.

It's a shame about the baby but it'll go back to sleep eventually and your dh will learn to keep an eye on his phone next time wink

I did text, but not sure of delivery, so called mobile. No answer, left vm. Messaged on Fb in case he was on computer and then finally called the landline. Don't you love modern communication?
Wine delivered. Baby still asleep.
And DP may get his oats laterwink

Ha ha smile I text DH about 15 mins ago from the bath asking for more wine! We exchanged a few texts and then he appeared with wine. I love modern technology, much nicer than yelling grin

You called your own landline phone while the baby's asleep? We've got a wild one here folks! grin
