Hi all!

Maybe i’m over-reacting but need to vent !

DH has away for 4 days for a Work trip and came home late last Night.
I was looking forward to a cosy family night tonight - we have 3 children , 2 under 5 and a teenager.

But no ... He is off to spend 3 hours at the cinema because he MUST see the new avengers film tonight.

So no time With the children , as he came home from Work and started doing Jobs, and i have to put 2 if them to bed so they Will be asleep when he gets home.

I wouldn't be happy, either. I think this is very selfish of him.

One of the children is in tears because he is confused that daddy is back after being away but has to go again.

Id be ok with it. You have tomorrow.

What a dick! YANBU.

Well that settles it. If your child is in tears he shouldn't go.

Leave him to go and watch his stupid film.

Just don’t let him back him!

I'd be upset that he'd upset your child. My partner is like that with his favourite series of films and has to see them as soon as they come out. Could you do something special tomorrow?

Whyohwhydo Fri 26-Apr-19 16:05:31

He’s gone! Had no problem leaving a crying a child -i Said i hope it’s Worth it and enjoy Your film.

Is he going alone? Selfish pig either way mind you.

hidinginthenightgarden Fri 26-Apr-19 16:06:36

Yes he is selfish. Why can't he go tomorrow or take a late screening so he can spend time with his kids first?

Whyohwhydo Fri 26-Apr-19 16:07:04

He had several days of being alone in another city where he could have gone to see the film . He does things when he wants to . 😞

I'm fairly sure avengers is on tomorrow as well. And the next day. Plot will probably stay the same. Utterly unacceptable to upset your own children needlessly.

He must see an Avengers film? Is he 7 years old?

TwoleftUggs Fri 26-Apr-19 16:10:48

Well I can understand why he might have wanted to see it today. Wasn’t it released just today, and the longer he leaves it the more chance of spoilers etc.. (can you tell I have an avengers obsessed DH and DS). However he could have gone to a later evening showing, or maybe taken the older DC with him.

Why don't you tell him that you must see the film tonight?

Whyohwhydo Fri 26-Apr-19 16:13:50

Thanks all! Nice to be listened to - wether you agree With me or not .

As you say, he could have seen it when he was away.

outsho Fri 26-Apr-19 16:35:17

Selfish. Made his child cry so he could see a shit film, great parenting right there.

Make sure you do something similar tomorrow. Just say right I’m off DH, bye! And disappear for 3 hours.

Happyspud Fri 26-Apr-19 16:35:32

Any way you can actually make sure he’s at this film that he absolutely had to be at at this time of day??

LittleElle Fri 26-Apr-19 16:35:35

It’s the end of a series that has spanned 22 films and almost a decade. I’m actually with him on this one because I know how important it is to fans. Everyone is being a twat and giving away spoilers and there are no tickets all weekend at cinemas within a 25 mile radius around me

BlueJava Fri 26-Apr-19 16:35:50

YANBU. Is he 10 years old? Ridiculous behaviour from a man, especially after a business trip and you have children.

Decormad38 Fri 26-Apr-19 16:38:32

Why can’t he take the teen or you and teen babysits? We ate all going together tomorrow.

BollocksToBrexit Fri 26-Apr-19 16:39:12

YANBU I really don't understand men like this. DH had been away with work this week too but he's ditched the end of conference meal so that he can get home before DS goes to bed because he misses his son (and me too I hope).
