To expect my husband to pick up on the subtle clues?

I don't want to listen to him. (he's drinking and he talks shit when he's had a few)
He is trying to talk to me about stuff I barely care about when he's sober.
He is talking.
I am saying "uh-hu" while typing.
Every third sentence he utters, I sigh, turn round and say "pardon?" and he repeats it. I then go back to typing and continue "uh-hu" until it's time for the next <sigh> "Pardon?"

Since I would normally look him in the eye and say "I don't care." but he has told me that he considers that to be rude, I think he should at least pick up my subtle message. Don't you?

Your poor DH. He needs a few bevvies to pluck up the courage to share his innermost thoughts with you and this is how you repay him grin

YABU.My DH has failed to pick up on my 'subtle' clue (exaggerated sighing, rattling the paper, in the end calling by bf to complain that I am bored bored bored of sport on TV) that I am shortly going to stick pins in my eyes if I have to watch anymore league 1 football/PGA Golf/test cricket/Olympic archery-swimming-gymnastics-cycling.He has had all of these on at some point today.I am practically a gibbering wreck and he hasnt even looked up from the screen!grin

TheRealMrsOsborne Sun 10-Aug-08 21:31:14

I just say "DH you're boring me" or "I'm not listening" grin, i've got to say though i'd go bonkers if he said that to me

Hecate Sun 10-Aug-08 21:31:19

Subtle + Man + waste of time.

Just keep saying "uh-huh" every now and then and eventually he'll fall asleep. grin

Normally, MrsO, I say "I don't care" but he's had words with me and explained that people generally find that rude blush so I am trying to avoid it.

Hecate Sun 10-Aug-08 21:33:46

ah good.

Better than Georgia the woman he's leaving me for because I never listen to him. grin
