Husband requiring "full assistance" in the mornings?

My husband told me last night that he will "require full assistance" to get out in the morning as he has some important meetings etc. He often says things like this and I don't take much notice. I have 3 DC to get out to school as it is. Last night I put everything by the door for him, keys, phone headphones and some documents I "must not let him forget". I even hung his suit out and put his shoes by the door because I can't be doing with him asking me where Particular items are in the morning. Only for him to get up and have a flap because no, he's actually cycling to the meetings and apparently wanted a bag packed confused.

Wouldn't you think that if you could see someone was dealing with 3 children in the mornings, you wouldn't add to the general rush and stress everyone out by shouting ridiculous questions and demands about things you could easily do yourself? This is a man who employs hundreds of people, by the way. Does anyone else have this kind of issue with their husband?

Nope. Because he’s an adult and I’m not his slave.

I'd crease up laughing if my DH said this grinshock

Eh no. I have three kids, not four.

Full assistance?

What a giant bellend. Laugh in his face next time he says it.

Oh FFS. Adults sort themselves out in the morning. And children too in your case.

Your husband is a bellend

Tell him to set his alarm earlier and grow the fuck up. Seriously. Don't do a thing for him.

No, because my DH is a fully-functioning adult. He has important meetings every day of his life and still manages to get himself sorted and walk the dog and help with the kids before leaving at 7.30.

Stop sorting stuff out for your DH as though he’s still at primary school

What a knob

Sirzy Mon 16-Apr-18 07:59:51

Why did you get anything together for him? As an adult he should be more than capable of getting ready for w day at work

Inkanta Mon 16-Apr-18 07:59:58

Oh for god sakes.

I must have a dirty mind because I thought 'full assistance' was going to mean something else entirely.

APermanentlyExhaustedPigeon Mon 16-Apr-18 08:00:05

Does he think he has employed YOU? Hope he pays well! shock

Globetrotter100 Mon 16-Apr-18 08:00:07

No. Tell him to pack his own bloody work schoolbag.

BuntyII Mon 16-Apr-18 08:00:16

He sounds like a pompous arse. No assistance required to get out of bed and go to work here.

Pumpkintopf Mon 16-Apr-18 08:00:19

Try reminding him he's actually an adult, not an additional child.

fuzzywuzzy Mon 16-Apr-18 08:00:30

Really? Does he often speak to you like you’re his skivvy?

What would happen if you ignored him and concentrated in getting yourself and dc out the house instead?

Twickerhun Mon 16-Apr-18 08:00:45

Wow no. My contribution to helping my DH get out if the house in the morning is to try to keep the kids out if his way.

Fruitcorner123 Mon 16-Apr-18 08:00:45

Is this real? Please stop doing this for him. Its awful and if you have daughters they will learn that this is a woman's place.

tissuesosoft Mon 16-Apr-18 08:00:54

If my DP asked me to do all that I would die laughing and promptly ignore it all.

Ohforfoxsakereturns Mon 16-Apr-18 08:01:07

I did.

He is now my XH.

He had a lovely turn of phrase, “why have a dog and bark yourself?”

I was a SAHM and sucked it up for far longer than I should have. Lost any respect I had for him and saw him as a man-child. A deeply unattractive quality in someone you are meant to consider your lover.

If DP tried that shit he’d be told to fuck right off.

Oh give over. I clicked assuming you meant something quite different wink

No. I do not have that problem with my husband because he’s a grown up.
