To want to pitch DH head first into the sea

I love him dearly, but oh my good fucking fuck

I have been out since half six this morning. I got home at 8. I have had a shitty day for a variety of reasons and I am exhausted. Tomorrow I have to get up and do it all again.

DH was home hours ago, and fair play, house is OK and dinner is handed to me. I haven't eaten since twelve, so I'm shovelling in lasagne, when he starts with the questions

- When does your mum want to borrow that table, are you going to take it round on Monday morning or should we do it sooner, I'm not sure if it will fit in the car, have you tried it, do you know how it folds down, if I get it down tomorrow morning you could take it on your way to...

JUST SHUT UP. I can barely think straight I am so tired and you want me to organise some fucking tiny issue RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW.

I told him quite sharply that I really cba discussing it now, and he's all hurt.

Yep I get this too. DH hates silence so he fills them with chatter. I am sitting here with a glass of red wine it is helping. grin

Luckily my dh likes silence just as much as I do. We rarely talk and we love it grin
His dm on the otherhand just fucking talks constantly, and not in a conversation type way, but just talks at you constantly. It's fucking tiring.
I dread her being there once I've finished work as I'll just get bombared with questions, small talk, gossip about people I don't know etc and all I want to do is sit and be quiet

Do it. Sounds perfectly reasonable.

SandunesAndRainclouds Fri 30-Sep-16 21:12:51

I think I am guilty of doing this to DH. He also works long hours and I spend most of my time alone thinking about all the things I want to talk to him about. Once he's home it all pours out in one desperate verbal rainbow. Maybe he's annoyed by it, but it's because I've been desperate to talk to him any adult all day.

I'll rethink my approach...

These titles are becoming compititive grin

My kids do this to me.

Tonight we ordered a very rare takeaway after a very very stressful day. I've not eaten since twelve. The takeaway was late and then my part of the order was swapped with another order so I had to wait for them to come collect it and swap them over so I was even more Hangry then usual.

I actually said as I finally sat down "please do not talk to me at all for the next 10 minutes"

They still bloody did though.

I have recently taken up swimming. I'm not in training to swim the channel, or anything. I'm just trying to improve my fitness a little, and possibly lose a bit of weight.

Every time I get back, DH gives me the third degree about how many laps, and how long to do them, etc. He's much more interested in it than I am, honestly!

Drives me mad!

GladAllOver Fri 30-Sep-16 21:24:12

You're not too tired to start a thread on MN though!

(sorry - I'm sympathetic really!)

BuggerMyOldBoots Fri 30-Sep-16 21:28:44

Oh that's because he has stfu and I have gone into anger mode which is fuelling my posting grin

He's currently binge watching the walking cunting dead, as he has been every evening this week. I hate it, every time I look up there is a close up of someone being decapitated ffs

Go get some wine/cake/choc and chill. In fairness sounds like he was trying to be helpful.

Queenbean Fri 30-Sep-16 21:35:18

Aw, I bet he was like a puppy, really excited for you to be home and chatting to you about things which are too banal to put in a text

That said, I need about 15 mins of silence when I get in so I can unwind - I do it now by saying hi then just getting straight in the shower. Bliss. Wash the day off and have some silent time as well

eggyface Fri 30-Sep-16 21:35:52

Oh god I'd want to talk about the table straight away! !! It would bring me closer to dh nattering on about logistics things. Sadly he comes from a small and not chatty family and would rather bash his head on the table than discuss its whereabouts.

mineofuselessinformation Fri 30-Sep-16 21:36:18

Repeat after me (out loud):
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know

And the finale, if necessary:

Slipperywhippet Fri 30-Sep-16 21:38:18

I'm totally sympathetic, no one likes to be hassled when they're knackered but isn't this like some weird gender reversal thing? This is what men have been saying about women for the last 20 years isn't it?

Discobabe Fri 30-Sep-16 21:40:54

Sounds like my 7 yo grin

I like to have about 10 minutes upstairs to get changed on arrival home. I confess to getting a bit scratchy if DW wants to speak to me, or sits outside the bathroom whilst I am inside and chats.

Soon let it go though, as I like coming home to a busy house really...

ItShouldOfBeenJess Fri 30-Sep-16 21:46:01

Uh oh.... (cracks open Walkers Sensations).

Are the 'violent thread title' brigade watching, I wonder?

Do it, OP. I used to hate mealtimes with the ex. Incessant nattering. The plus side was I frequently stole food from his plate and he never noticed.

WinchesterWoman Fri 30-Sep-16 21:47:28

These are what you need: Mm, yes, absolutely, mmm, not sure, absolutely, for sure, absolutely, why don't you do that, mm, absolutely, absolutely.

My DH comes in from work and has to offload every shit boring piece of his day (accompanied by a bad mood usually and lots of slamming/banging to get attention). The minute we start eating, he starts asking questions about my day - every night i say can we just eat and talk later, im hungry, don't want indigestion and am tired then get the "you've been at home all day, you should try my job and going to work" ad nauseum. Every fecking night. It's only because of the kids I'm not in Holloway serving a life sentence.

SanityAssassin Fri 30-Sep-16 21:48:48

I love silence - my family don't - wine or chocolate?

ageingrunner Fri 30-Sep-16 21:50:33

There could be a new disclaimer in the titles of these threads, the new 'lighthearted'
You could put 'I would feel the same if we were a lesbian couple, or if we were a straight couple but I was the male partner'
Would that make it alright??
I'm all for violent female on male thread titles btw. Bring it on, I say smile

WinchesterWoman Fri 30-Sep-16 21:50:57

you could Sybil Fawlty? i know

BuggerMyOldBoots Fri 30-Sep-16 22:03:26

I don't give a shit what DH has between the legs, I just want him to let me get in to the house, eat, and give my brain time to process all the shit it's been overloaded with during the day grin
