DP gave my Easter Egg & phone to his DS

Just writing this seems petty but I’m just pissed off.
Due a huge change in financial circumstances I’ve recently gone back to work. I needed immediate payment & advertised for cleaning work. Within a few days I had a full diary. As many of you know it’s long hard work but to be honest I really enjoy it. I’ve been with the same clients/customers for about 6-8 weeks.
DP has been looking for work (he relied on savings previously) but doesn’t want to take anything ‘ in case a bigger opportunity comes along) . Right now £50 a day is a bigger opportunity to me !
Last week a client left me a lovely (expensive) egg. I was absolutely chuffed as it was the first ever gift/thank you I’d ever received (worked in construction for 25 years previously) .
3 months ago DP upgraded his phone & gave me his old phone (2 more newer model than my current model). I transferred everything across & it’s much better than my old one. 3 days ago his youngest (14) DS lost his phone .
We found an old phone of DPs but the screen is cracked badly & a very old model. DP doesn’t want his DS to have this phone so i had to return the phone he’d given me & I will have to have the cracked phone.
I’m reasonable- I’ve got the phone- I cannot download my everyday apps I need because it won’t upgrade to the new software . It’s a phone- I’ll manage.
Where is my Easter Egg though ? He gave it to his DS as his present.
I’m a bit fuming

You are very accomodating about the phone, its really nice of you but id b peed off if he'd given away my lovely egg without asking me? Grrr

LTB he sounds like a right knob.

HBStowe Tue 23-Apr-19 19:26:57

He’s a selfish dick, it’s like he doesn’t care about you at all

LEDadjacent Tue 23-Apr-19 19:27:05

That sucks. Is he always like this?

Aragog Tue 23-Apr-19 19:27:54

I'd be really cross about both!

Cherrysoup Tue 23-Apr-19 19:27:57

What a twat. Why did you allow him to take your phone, tho? I’d have told him to sod of.

He gave you something then took it back AND he gave a gift you were given by someone else away?

He's a cunt OP and has absolutely no respect for you.

Tell him he owes you a fucking Easter egg. Use fucking to hammer it home.

Is he paying anything toward the household?

This. With fucking bells on.

Awful man. Run OP. The hills are that way!

LuvSmallDogs Tue 23-Apr-19 19:30:10

He doesn’t respect you and is taking you for a ride. He has to wait round on his arse for a “bigger opportunity” but it’s fine for you to have the initiative to put yourself out there doing cleaning so you can make cash ASAP? You can have a shitty old phone, but it’s not good enough for his kid in an emergency? Taking a gift someone else gave you for your hard work rather than getting off his arse and buying his kid something?

You’re going to tell me you have kids/marriage/mortgage, aren’t you?🤦🏼‍♀️

He just took your Easter Egg and gave it Ro his son? Didn’t ask?

What is the point of him?

You could argue that it’s his phone, he was just lending it to you... but stealing your egg?

People say that some posters are too quick to say LTB. I personally think that in many cases, it’s just the right thing to do. This is one of them. If he shows you such utter disregard, what on earth do you want to be with him for?


Asdfghjklll Tue 23-Apr-19 19:30:44

This is not at all petty. Why does he get to upgrade his phone and you don't? Why don't you take out a contract phone and get yourself one?
The egg is entirely selfish and unacceptable. It was for you and he didn't even ask.

Still18atheart Tue 23-Apr-19 19:30:48

I’d be having a full blown meltdown demanding that he replaces that Easter egg with the exact same version if not better angry otherwise he’ll be replaced with a much better version.
What made him think he had the right? Does he have form for this behaviour?
Also, I’d be expecting him to at least contribute for a new phone too. Otherwise he’d be updated as well

elaine26 Tue 23-Apr-19 19:31:03

I'd be fuming about both, he sounds incredibly selfish. He should give you his phone as you're the one earning a wage and he should replace the egg as well. What a cheek. You have my sympathies OP

Foodylicious Tue 23-Apr-19 19:31:32

Nope, nope and just bloody nope!

He needs to swap the phones back.
He can get off his bloody arse and take whatever job he can get the arrogant git.
Then he can get ds another phone if he wants and should get you something for the egg he re-appropriated shock

HollowTalk Tue 23-Apr-19 19:32:18

What kind of dickhead are you with? You are the only one working and he gives a gift to you to his own child in an attempt to make himself look generous. He's horrible!

ItsAllTitsUp49 Tue 23-Apr-19 19:32:37

I think this post is actually a cry for help !
I literally work every hour I can & that egg symbolised someone appreciating me.
The phone solved many problems & seems like a kick in the teeth.

terftastic1984 Tue 23-Apr-19 19:32:56

Horrible man.

BettysLeftTentacle Tue 23-Apr-19 19:34:32

He’s got no respect for you. He’s lazy, tight and a piss taker. Had he got any redeeming features at all?

sockatoe Tue 23-Apr-19 19:34:42

He needs to cut his coat according to his cloth. He cannot afford a phone or gift for his son. Either earning or asking you to help would be the way forward here, not stealing from his partner who is working her ass off. I think you need to have words.

Xyzzzzz Tue 23-Apr-19 19:34:57

Seriously, I’d leave.

A 14 year old does not need a fancy phone. That aside. It was your egg. Not his to give away what a nob. Honestly. That’s just rude and inconsiderate. Coupled with the fact he won’t work I’d leave.

ourkidmolly Tue 23-Apr-19 19:35:25

Appalling behaviour. I'd finish the relationship.

BingandFlop2019 Tue 23-Apr-19 19:35:41

I'd be demanding both back! Not nice for the child I know, but perhaps he should see what his Dad is really like?

This will get worse imo.
