to want to stove his silly smug head in over a bowl of piffling muesli??

I am on a diet, so rarely eat anything that yields any real pleasure, IYSWIM. DH knows perfectly well that the only meal I really enjoy is my (plain, Sainsburys value, 57p/kg) muesli with apple juice on it.

So this morning I come down, put my muesli in my bowl, only to find that the apple juice has all been drunk . Not a big deal, if there isn't much left I'm more than happy for the kids/dh to have it, it's not reserved or anything!! but I did express mild regret at the fact that I was going to have to have water on my muesli.

Cue dh sniggering spitefully. And when I said "That's so mean, what have I don't to you? Do I laugh at you when you are upset?" he just laughed all the more. In fact even when he apologised he was smirking.

AIBU to want to bury a meat cleaver in the back of his stupid smug skull?

As it's pancake day i would hit him over the head with a frying pan.

Now that's a damn fine idea

Surely that's a decapitating offence.

can't you go crazy and put milk on your muesli? OMG I cannot believe you would eat muesli with apple juice even, never mind water. What diet are you on? I'm amazed you could stick to it for 1 day. I def. couldn't. I am open jawed, and feel a mixture of sadness and admiration for you. Blimey.

As for dh, kick him in the goolies. Then smirk as you apologise.

Well, I am very mildly intolerant of cows milk, so I try to keep it to a minimum, although I don't exclude it altogether (am a closet cheese fiend for one thing). We have soya milk and cows' milk which I could use, but I actually prefer apple juice on muesli. Water was going a bit far though

I am still annoyed with him for laughing, how petty am I?

frying pan in the goolies?

I have just the frying pan, a nice nippy little one with a cast-iron bottom

You most certainly are NOT being unreasonable. I often feel that way when my DP alughas at my misfortunes. he does it regularly, and the more annoyed I get the funnier he finds it. The woirst thing is that I find myself smiling, when I do not find it in the least bit amusing, but smiles are contagious, so he thinks I find it funny also, I get more angry, and he finds it funnier, viscious circle that inevitably ends in me wanting to hit over the head with a pan...

i would be raving mad too. esp since i can't imagine having muesli with apple juice. i would go on kitchen strike. he can eat whatever you are having your the next week or 2.
