Is it unreasonable to ask DH to stop saying he is full or tired

I think he just says it for something to say but while I'm not saying it's the worst thing in the world it's really really irritating.

Today there was a roast veg thing for lunch and he ate it followed by pudding.
"Ohhh I'm so full ... Oh I'm STUFFED ... Oh I couldn't eat another bite ... I'm so full."

I said tersely in the end "you know no one held you down at gunpoint and made you eat it!"

Then the I'm tired starts, I'm tired, I'm so tired, I'm exhausted.

He says I say I am tired and I do but in response to something, like if he wants to to something I might say I am tired but I don't just walk around announcing I am tired!

AIBU? I don't know why it annoys me so much!

Maybe he's just saying it to himself and ypoure in earshot?

I dunno, its his home, he should be free to say what he wants without fear of being snapped at tersely.

Too long cooped up together over the holidays?

cherrycrumblecustard Sun 01-Jan-17 20:54:30

Probably Sruffy! I think he does sort of expect a response even if it's only "mmmm".

cherrycrumblecustard Sun 01-Jan-17 20:54:48

That too euphemia!!

nethunsreject Sun 01-Jan-17 20:55:44

That would annoy me. It's like taking up space, the aural equivalent of manspreading.

ScruffyTheJanitor Sun 01-Jan-17 20:56:17

Hoiw often and what topics do you cover in conversation?
Maybe he's trying to fill a silent void?

It sounds like standard mindless chitchat.

Many people love to talk even when they have nothing to say.

I think it's some weird social shit.

I get like that with DH - after 23 years I've heard all his anecdotes, I know his opinions on everything, and there are certain behavioural tics of his that drive me round the twist if we're cooped up too long.

Getting back to work sorts us out. smile

Sounds like one or both of you are ready to get back to work grin

cherrycrumblecustard Sun 01-Jan-17 21:02:11

Poor DH lol I am being very unreasonable blush

It still annoys me!

swizzlestar Sun 01-Jan-17 21:02:16

My dh does this too. If he's not tired then he's moaning about various aches and pains.

After 10 days of no work enforced time apart, I'm on the edge....

gamerwidow Sun 01-Jan-17 21:02:45

My mum does this. She just witters on constantly about NOTHING just for something to say. It's ok not to talk sometimes. I don't need to know every thought that passes through her head. It drives me mad because it's just nonsense but she would say it's just chitchat and i'm rude. Not sure who is in the right but I know how annoying it is grin

cherrycrumblecustard Sun 01-Jan-17 21:03:22

Shit is retirement going to be filled with DHs annoying habits?

He is also obsessed with the bins, when they are being emptied, at what time, how terrible it would be if they were not.

Soubriquet Sun 01-Jan-17 21:04:42

I'm glad you see you're unreasonable

I'm sat here with this look confused

But I suppose it's probably a bit of cabin fever

oldlaundbooth Sun 01-Jan-17 21:05:45

Cabin fever for sure.

Excited101 Sun 01-Jan-17 21:05:48

This is DSis all over- 'I'm so bloated', 'ugh, I'm so uncomfortable', 'I'm so tired, I didn't sleep last night' and repeat...

Excited101 Sun 01-Jan-17 21:06:17

I think it's really just for attention

cherrycrumblecustard Sun 01-Jan-17 21:09:04

Excited god she sounds made for DH!

FurryLittleTwerp Sun 01-Jan-17 21:11:06

Shit is retirement going to be filled with DHs annoying habits?

Yes. I'd be lying if I said this wasn't one of the reasons I'm planning on leaving my DH grin

LTB grin

I will swap you. I have had my husband talk at me for an hour about cumulonimbus clouds and how they are the most dangerous of clouds without actually saying why. In the end i said ok but WHY? do they stand in front of planes waving their arms and yelling buggabuggabugga?
Apparently that's rude.

Then we had a passionate discussion about how people dont need to have an hour long parable in response to a simple question.
He thinks people should recive the fullest possible picture. I maintain you should just answer the question.

It hit a low when voices were raised over how to answer the question "what time is it"

I think i win.

It's a hollow, sad sort of victory.
😂

HecateAntaia Sun 01-Jan-17 21:32:11

Meant to say. He tried to tell me about a different type of cloud and i said look pal that'll cost you 5 cat videos
so he shut up 😂

My ex and his need to talk about stuff that SO doesn't matter drove me to insanity.
like, Christmas day he was round to see the children and he starts asking me questions (whilst I'm doing dinner) and DD's birthday and what we are doing. Which would be fine, but her birthday is in fucking August. He has no sense of appropriate time and place.
He also likes to tell me things I already know. repeatedly. and that is why I don't live with him anymore. grin

Hecate I think you are my new hero.
