To think DH should apologise to me?

In December I started looking up ways to make money “on the side”. I found a way to make money online, just an hour or so a day, no outlay, no bothering other people ... just easy money. Since December I have made £920.
DH wants nothing to do with it as he can’t be arsed to learn it but is chuffed with the profits made so far.
Yesterday I cocked up and lost £10 (taking my overall profit to £910). DH was cross and had a go at me asking what I was playing at and how did I manage to cock it up and lose money. He doesn’t even know the basics of what I do!! How can he criticise when he can’t even be arsed to learn the basics??

He’s come around now and admits that as we’re still £910 in profit he can’t complain but I’m so annoyed!! AIBU to want an apology for making me feel stupid and incompetent!?

Doesn't sound like that big a deal tbh. He's admitted he was wrong. Is it gambling?

YABU not to tell us what it is.

Matched betting?

Matched betting?

It'll be matched betting. Yanbu op, how dare he berate you over losing ten pounds of profit that you didn't have anyway, you haven't lost anything you just haven't gained that day! I'd be keeping this extra money to one side as a nest egg personally!

It’s an issue because he made me feel like shit! When in reality I’ve earned us £910 more than we had before and by end of next week should be getting on for £1k.

This is such a nothing problem that I do wonder whether it's more of a stealth brag. I mean really why do you even care what your DH thinks about the 'loss' of £10 - why did you even tell him?
I can't fathom this at all. Stealth brag for sure.

LellowYedbetter Sun 10-Mar-19 20:07:17

It might be nothing to you to have your husband slagging you off for one mistake but to me, it’s not nothing. And there is nothing to brag about considering none of you know me, what would be the point in bragging when nobody knows who I am?!

MummytoCSJH Sun 10-Mar-19 20:08:13

Definitely a stealth brag Mma. What a non-problem 😂

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 10-Mar-19 20:08:17

Maybe he’s worried you’ll start gambling.

thedisorganisedmum Sun 10-Mar-19 20:09:32

well, maybe it made him realised that you could lose money, and a lot of it and he panicked.

PurpleDaisies Sun 10-Mar-19 20:10:36

What is it?

LellowYedbetter Sun 10-Mar-19 20:11:57

It’s matched betting.

The money I lost was money I made. It had no impact on our actual finances, it was simply £10 of profit lost

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 10-Mar-19 20:12:53

Weird. Weird post.

PreseaCombatir Sun 10-Mar-19 20:15:09

I know someone who does matched betting. Consumes so much of their time!

Limensoda Sun 10-Mar-19 20:16:41

A non issue really.

Hoopaloop Sun 10-Mar-19 20:17:53

Wow go you 🥔

Pengrin Sun 10-Mar-19 20:18:34

Is this for recruitment?

trendingorange Sun 10-Mar-19 20:20:54

Maybe your dh realises that the house always wins?

YesQueen Sun 10-Mar-19 20:21:19

@Pengrin it's not a MLM type thing or that people recruit into smile
I do it, and started via a google search and some blog posts!

LellowYedbetter Sun 10-Mar-19 20:23:46

Recruiting would not benefit me in the slightest 😂 I specifically didn’t mention what it was in the OP as I didn’t want to come across like I was advertising it.

My issue is with DH who had a go at me for cocking up something which he can’t even do himself

Pinkbells Sun 10-Mar-19 20:24:08

Mumsnet HQ, can we do away with these betting adverts, please? [hmm}

outreach29 Sun 10-Mar-19 20:24:34

Sheeesh - how much did he have a go at you for losing a tenner? Maybe he's sick of hearing about it and doesn't want to learn it.

Good pickings to be had next week with Cheltenham - hope you've booked a week off work.You'll easily have over £1000 by the end of the week.

My suggestion is - don't talk about it to him - then he can't criticise...
