YANBU but I do think it is just a man thing.I have to sit and listen to my dh go on and on and on and on about his job every bloody night but minute I start up about mine doesn't want to know. I work in the crown court so u can imagine the type of stuff get to deal with - he just says he doesn't like hearing about stuff like that.
I just ignore him now, nod my head in the right places and then ask in sarcastic tone if he would like to hear about my day now. Seems to be getting the message.

Was it that he didn't ask or you were telling him and he wasn't listening?

Thank god, not just me. New job - don't want to say because serious stuff - but not as much as you? Social services. Thanks for posting.

Yep my DH sees conversation on Friday night as a challenge, going to browse now.

Starting any new job is stressful and social services is not an easy job, having worked in the care section of the Court I know the types of things you hav eto deal with. Totally understand about notsaying stuff on here about it. That is why it is so important that you can talk to your dh at the end of the day about it - think your dh has been really crap tbh. Are you going to tackle him about it?
I have just returned back to work after 5 months on sick leave and just need to get stuff off my chest when I get home, think this is why I make a point of telling him about my day - no way I am just going to let him get away with it. Luckily I have some good friends who don't mind me ringing for a moan who also know how crap dh can be.(he does have lots of good points though - can't slate him totally, just a bit selfish/inconsiderate at times)

came back. Nope, not going to challange. Have known DH long enough to know - no point. Sweeting but spleepy. Doesnn't mean not really peed off (shall we start a new acronym RPO = Really Peed Off) Expect its already around. DH is just, as u say A MAN, tough week - but I'm all womann.... as the song says... and I'll survive....

Think we should have bring dh to work day - they will soon realise how hard we work! Anyway hopefully you will have spent the evening relaxing with a nice drink or two, reckon that those with stressful jobs like us should get wine vouchers or tax relief on alcohol - cos it's not a case of wanting the stuff - more that we NEED the stuff ( unless you are me and can't have alcohol cos trying ttc - long story). oh well going to try and wake my dh from his usual sleeping on sofa position babies don't make themselves
Will be around in the morning if u want to chat x
