To sleep with dd tonight and leave dh with no bedding?

I have a camper van, and last night we took dd (5) camping.

I loaded everything into it yesterday (whilst working from home) did both school runs, did dd's homework with her when she came in, and we set off at 5pm when dh finished work.

Camped fine, he made the fire, I cooked on it.

Got up this morning, I straightened the camper while he and dd played in the woods, I washed the plates/grill etc and then we came home as dd had a party at 11.

Deal was I did the party, he unloaded the van. Just noticed our duvet/pillows are not on the bed. angry

In summary, his sole contribution was to make a fire and empty the fridge when we got back.

WIBU to go to bed and leave it? He is working tonight (DJ) so it will be a right arse to do at 3am but will be a good consequence for being a lazy bastard IMO.

Nah. Go for it.

FoxesSitOnBoxes Sat 24-Sep-16 19:55:32

YANBU. Go for it.

Skweeki Sat 24-Sep-16 19:58:26, Lift (steal) The Bedding! grin

I don't need to steal it. The lazy bastard has left it out in the camper.

If dd and I camp alone we use sleeping bags, that live in the camper, but dh insisted we needed a bloody duvet.

Fuck him. Natural consequences and all that! grin

Lock the door
Leave a note telling him to sleep in the van.

Bearded. Unfortunately not an option.
A) the keys are inside with me and B) nobody sleeps in my bus when I'm not there. He's my pride and joy! smile

Do it! Perfect payback for being a lazy arse.

I have a campervan and have duvets that stay in it all the time , including spares for the tents. They live there apart from the occasional wash, though after this years Download festival some got chucked out.
Same with pillows.

Even got covers that go with the campervan rather than our bedroom.

I find a duvet much comfier and cosier than sleeping bags

Buy some cheap supermarket duvet for future use.

Meantime , ach fuck it , if he only had one job...

Will he wake you up trying to sort it at 3 in the morning though?

Inertia Sat 24-Sep-16 20:19:29

I would, especially as it was him that insisted on taking the duvet.

CatThiefKeith Sat 24-Sep-16 20:21:08

ratspeaker that's probably a good move going forward. Duvets take up so much room though and dh is rarely off at the weekends it's usually just dd and I, plus the dog.

He wouldn't wake me up I don't think. He's lazy, and the worlds biggest procrastinator, but he's not stupid!

MaddyHatter Sat 24-Sep-16 20:21:45

really? are you so petty you can't even go and get a duvet and pillows from the camper van?

Don't be ridiculous.

Mycraneisfixed Sat 24-Sep-16 20:24:09

Is HE really so lazy he can't be bothered to get bedding in from the campervan?

CatThiefKeith Sat 24-Sep-16 20:25:57

I'm not being petty, I'm teaching him that actions have consequences.

I've spent the day grocery shopping and taking our daughter to a party. He spent those 4 hours reading Facebook and watching a film instead of unloading the van as agreed.

I loaded everything in to the van, did the driving, and the cleaning up, plus the cooking. How am I being petty by not enabling his laziness exactly?

Dh? Is that you?

FoxesSitOnBoxes Sat 24-Sep-16 20:26:03

Bit cross there Maddy?

RandomDent Sat 24-Sep-16 20:28:10

I would bring it in so he couldn't accuse me of being an arse.

However I would then wrap the duvet around me several times so he couldn't use it. grin

bettybyebye Sat 24-Sep-16 20:28:52

Do it OP! I would do exactly the same if my DH did this

Oly5 Sat 24-Sep-16 20:28:52

Yanbu. Twit
I'd be fuming

skyyequake Sat 24-Sep-16 20:30:44

Do it!!! It's hard when not picking up from their laziness impacts your or the DC but you are primed with the opportunity for it to impact him the most. Do it for all of us with lazy DPs, DHs, and EXs grin

CatThiefKeith Sat 24-Sep-16 20:31:38

I'm not planning to even admit to noticing tbh. It isn't unusual for me to fall asleep with dd when he's working at night.

It was only because I wanted something from our room that I even clocked it was missing. 😊

EvansAndThePrince Sat 24-Sep-16 20:34:47

I'd do it too! But my DH would bring the duvet in when he got home and I'd find him all warm and comfy in our bloody bed in the morning and then end up annoyed again.

CatThiefKeith Sat 24-Sep-16 20:38:33

Dd's bed is just as warm and comfy as ours so no issue there.

Dear god, why be so petty about such a thing. (Tuts to self).
