To not pick him up from the airport tomorrow?

Can't be arsed to NC.

Relevant details:

He is in short haul EU country (1.5hr max) visiting family including a GP who had a stroke around 3 months ago - recovering well.

I am at home working and looking after dog and cat.

He left Thurs am (up at 6.30am) after a late night and disturbed sleep for both of us for reasons out of our control.

He has since been having lovely lunches in lovely sun...

I am at home holding the fort at usual. I WFH so I'm ok with picking up most home duties.

I don't have a problem on a daily basis with the split of chores.

However, dog is being unusually annoying and over active, I'm trying to work, and do all the usual shit including cleaning the house. I had a crap night sleep last night due to my wonderful but currently arsehole dog.

I won't have any down time tonight really.

And tomorrow I need to clean the the house some more.

AIBU to say that whileI have nothing else meaning I can't. I'm happy to play chef, laundry, cleaner, etc., I'd rather not add being chauffeur at 7pm tomorrow night to do a 1.5 hr journey to save his a £30 Uber he can afford? When I could be supping a wee glass of vino and trying to chill out?

YABU. Really YABU.

DS likes me to run him various places, because it takes him twice as long on public transport. However, it takes me twice as long as it takes him. Not reasonable!

Pfft, just admit you're lazy, OP. That's a lot easier. Your DP can decide to love you or dump you, accepting the way you are. Don't come here for validation. This is between you two.

House is clean. Dog is finally chilling. I'm chilled, looking as good as I can, dinner will be served when he arrives.

Obviously I didn't go!

Actually dinner will be ready to when he's had a chance to chill and is ready.

Because sticking it straight in his face going 'look what I did' isn't really a nice gesture...

I think you're getting an awful hard time on here OP. For what's its worth, cleaning up after my overactive dog and housework-shy DP wears me out a lot. My 6 mth old is actually the least stress inducing of the lot!! Enjoy your glass of wine wine. And I'm sorry to see the "don't have kids" comments, that is really insensitive folks confused

@HarrysOwl he was worth every second

OP, you need to remember that unless you have children you aren’t allowed to be tired. wink

@Exhausted18 Insensitive is one word. Yes. Crass, rude, hurtful are others. It's something I've accepted, and within that it probably does make a person slightly selfish.

I didn't come here for validation about my life. AIBU would be fucking stupid choice for that.

I just wondered what others would do.

I found out!

Don't worry all is well here! The conversation went:

I'm knackered, it's been a shit couple of days, can you jump in an Uber and I'll have something nice for tea?
Yeah no worries, it'll be easier. Do you want me to order a takeaway to save you cooking?
No, don't worry, I've got us something nice!

He was fed, happy and snoring by 11pm.

A lovely ending Op. I wouldn't have fancied the airport pick up either.

QueenEhlana Sun 24-Mar-19 14:29:22

Op, I think I luffs you. Glad you he got the uber and you got to rest with a vino.

Who gives a flying fuck if others have to deal with more shit than you do. This is your life, this is your shit, and this is your DP.

Hope you're having a nice day together today.

*I just wondered what others would do.

I found out!* found out what some others said they would do.... grin

Glad you had a lovely evening, great ending!

For what it's worth op I'm on your side 🙂
Hate driving, loath airport car parks, would cheerfully pay the fare rather than go!

Your solution bored the shit out of me OP. This is what you should have done:

Drive to the airport, wave at him, lock the car doors and speed off. Wait round the corner until he gets in an uber then ram it at really high speed screaming surprise at the same time.
