Tonight we went out for a meal- a couple rang me and said they were unsure where the restaurant was so I said I would meet them at the car park and walk them to the restaurant. I left the restaurant and stood outside for 10minutes in -3temperatures. I ring them to see where they are and they've found the restaurant and didn't think to ring me. I get back and am absolutely freezing cold. No one says sorry, no one even DH even thought to call me to let me know to come back, and DH says I'm unreasonable to be annoyed.

I'm pissed off bc I was stood outside like an idiot freezing- they all knew I was there and yet no one said 'oh, let's let Macca know we are all here'

i'd be pissed off too...

YABU with your title though

MaccaPaccaismyNemesis Thu 26-Jan-17 21:07:43

Sorry, wasn't sure what to title it with. 'Useless family leave Macca out in the cold'?

sonyaya Thu 26-Jan-17 21:08:05

YANBU, totally inconsiderate.

Bloody hell. I'd be more than pissed off at that. It wouldn't take 20 seconds to fish out their mobile to give you a quick ring.

Maybe they had only just walked in and your dh was going to call you when he was done greeting them. If not - very odd indeed!

Yanbu. There's you being thoughtful and waiting to show them where it is and there's all of them not even considering you enough to let you know to come in. How long would they have left you!

MaccaPaccaismyNemesis Thu 26-Jan-17 21:10:58

No he says he was 'pleased to see his mum' when I quizzed him when we got home. He's all angry with me because he can't see why I would have liked to know. Sorry to drop feed but it was the PIL so didn't want to make a scene at the time. Quietly pissed off tonight. More loudly when I got home.

YANBU. I'd be mighty pissed off too. How long had they been there?

(And what's wrong with the thread title?confused)

WhereTheFuckIsWonderWoman Thu 26-Jan-17 21:12:28

His parents?! He should have been the one waiting in the cold in that case.

What WhereTheFuckIsWonderWoman said.
What a gent making you wait out in the cold!

Rainydayspending Thu 26-Jan-17 23:18:24

The title is vague. YANBU though re waiting.

AmeliaJack Thu 26-Jan-17 23:22:21

I would have had quite a lot to say about that. Quite loudly.

Lovewineandchocs Thu 26-Jan-17 23:28:23

I'd be livid. And he is "all angry" because he "can't see why you might have wanted to know"? Does he always display such an astounding lack of empathy?

DearMrDilkington Thu 26-Jan-17 23:30:23

Why were you waiting in the cold for his parents?!

I would be fuming. Not quietly.

Chinnygirl Thu 26-Jan-17 23:51:55

Never do it again. Next time tgey don't know where it is remind them that you are not waiting outside again.

Celaena Fri 27-Jan-17 07:08:14

Yes title is vague and has nothing to indicate the content

Abiu to be annoyed left waiting to give directions when they were already there?

Waited for them in cold car park

I waited, they didn't

Lots of other ways to say it, a bit annoyed could be the thread about your mil, neighbour, supermarket trip, or your driveway

MaccaPaccaismyNemesis Fri 27-Jan-17 13:11:46

Apologies for vague title

DrFoxtrot Fri 27-Jan-17 13:17:45

YANBU OP I would be pissed off too. Next time DH can wait outside and you can choose whether to let him know.

Not sure why PP are bringing up the vague title - I've seen loads of titles the same previously without people questioning it on the thread confused.

Jeanstootight Fri 27-Jan-17 13:22:28

So a bloke lets you go and wait alone in a dark and freezing car park for his parents. I'd be hitting him over the head with a book on basic manners and shoving a deployed rape alarm where the son don't shine. Who says chivalry is dead???

Jeanstootight Fri 27-Jan-17 13:23:00

*sun -bloody hell

livefornaps Fri 27-Jan-17 13:24:53

What an utter douchebag!!!!

So had they all been in the warm for ten mins without a thought to where you were?

So inconsiderate. Definitely never wait anywhere that isn't convenient for any of them again. Meet inside restaurants/bars/cafes only! And get yourself a gin and tonic from the bar before they've even arrived.

And it should have been your husband waiting in the cold. He sounds like a selfish pillock and he should have apologised profusely the minute he found out you'd spent all that time freezing.
