To not want to pay my DH for half my birthday present?

My birthday was on Monday. My DH was a complete twat for the whole day and ruined it for me, and he didn't get me a present. So when he went to our nearest big shopping centre yesterday to buy some clothes I asked him to get me a few things, to make it up to me. He then comes home with no clothes, a load of expensive crap he didn't need, and the demand that I pay him half because he's now skint. I would like to clarify this is the first thing he has got me in years, he only got a job in April after being unemployed for seven years, and I supported him and paid for everything in that time. Should I demand he pay me half for all the money I spent on him? I cannot believe him, I'm so annoyed with him right now. angry

Do you mean he bought a load of expensive crap you didn't need?

You, my dear, have a cocklodger.

It sounds like he's horrible. After being supported by you for seven years you'd think he'd give you a lovely day and treat you to something nice, not buy something you don't want and charge you for it!

How did he ruin the day?

What was it he got?

Huh? Did he buy you anything?

JennyOnAPlate Wed 07-Sep-16 20:33:00

Does he have any redeeming features? You're wasting your life on this man.

ConvincingLiar Wed 07-Sep-16 20:33:06

What did he buy? Was it for you or for him?

ImperialBlether Wed 07-Sep-16 20:33:45

I've read this again and wonder why on earth you're with him. There are a lot nicer men around.

SapphireSeptember Wed 07-Sep-16 20:36:13

Oh no, he got what I wanted (not expensive, because I have cheap tastes) and I know damn well he could afford it. The stuff he got was expensive and now he says he can't afford the rest of the month. Which is ridiculous.

You can do better than that.

VeryBitchyRestingFace Wed 07-Sep-16 20:37:52

I would demand he move out. Sharpish.

MooPointCowsOpinion Wed 07-Sep-16 20:38:46

Yeah. Cocklodger.

Urgh. He must be so unattractive when he acts like that, it's a wonder you can bare to look at him.

Clickclickclick Wed 07-Sep-16 20:39:14

Yuk, he's a cocklodger. Get rid.

SapphireSeptember Wed 07-Sep-16 20:42:03

I think Iove you!

He ruined my birthday by dragging playground drama with his best friend into it (he's 31, his friend is 18, they act like they're in Primary school!)

I accept that I can do better, I think he's terrified of that but doesn't seem to want to improve. I think he's actually getting worse.

MsJamieFraser Wed 07-Sep-16 20:44:12

Well tell him to take his expensive stuff back and then thrown the cock lodger out!

EarthboundMisfit Wed 07-Sep-16 20:45:14

Wow. Do you have DC?

SapphireSeptember Wed 07-Sep-16 20:47:49

No, no DC, thankfully.

SapphireSeptember Wed 07-Sep-16 20:48:54

He'll probably say he can't afford the train fare to take it back.hmm

AcrossthePond55 Wed 07-Sep-16 20:52:13

He bought you what you wanted, BUT expects you to pay for half the crap he bought himself because he spent part of his money on you? So, in essence, he's expecting you to pay for your own gift plus part of his shit.

Oh Good Lord, he needs to be long gone!

TriniRedVelvet Wed 07-Sep-16 20:52:51

Why is a 31 year old man hanging around with a 18 year old confused

He hasn't grown up. I would get rid. Not easy I know, but there it is.

Irelephant Wed 07-Sep-16 20:54:01

That's really shit of him you deserve better. Happy belated birthday op.

EweAreHere Wed 07-Sep-16 20:55:29

I'd seriously think about ending your relationship. Seriously. Is this how you want the rest of your life to be spent, with someone who only thinks about himself?

And for the love of frogs, please don't have children with this man.

ageingrunner Wed 07-Sep-16 20:55:54

He's 31 and his best friend is 18? That's unusual. I'd think that that might be a sound that your Dh is rather immature

ageingrunner Wed 07-Sep-16 20:56:15

A sound?? I meant a sign
