[angr] angry

Our house doesn't have a hall or a garage.
I work 4 days a week, so today, decide to take dd out. Go for is outside.

It has been outside in the rain since dp shoved it out there last Sunday. I failed to notice that he had shoved it outside. He does it so often I forget that it should live inside angry

So, it is soaking wet, and stinks. Wrestle screaming dd into it, and feel something wet on my hand. It is a slug angry

Go to get pram out of car boot later, and huge snail on rainhood, which means I must have pushed it round for an hour. Try my best to remove snail, and shudder at the thought of any other creepy crawlies in the boot.

Dp shoves it outside because he says it is in the way. I am absolutely terrified of snails/slugs/worms. They make me feel physically sick. Am still jumpy 2 hours later in caase one is in the house somewhere.

Am totally effed off with him. How can I retaliate?

AIBU to want to sing "someone's left a cake out in the rain"

why don't you buy a fold down buggy?

it is ridiculous to leave a pram outside without a rain cover .. shout at him

Tell him that you want a new pram if he does it again! He'll soon stop wink

You could do something wicked with a slug perhaps?

Why can't you fold up your pram?

Fimbo Fri 05-Sep-08 13:12:17

Yes, tell him the pram stinks and you want a new one.

Oh no don't mention that bloody song, my DP plays it constantly because of the music (he used to play the cornet) gets on my nerves. Make him clean it up or buy a new one, he will not do it again.

our double buggy used to live in our hall and I hated it with lots of hatey hate

sympathies if you don't have a hall either, prams are a pita

fold it up?

as well as our double we had a britax tank folded up in the dining room

re getting back at dh, maybe a slug could find its way into his work shoes or somehting?

MEN !!!!

It was folded up, but just dumped on the floor, rainhood face down. It has rained a lot since Sunday...

Am thinking of leaving his precious Ipod out there, or his running sheos grin. We have a severe weather warning for tomorrow so lots and lots of rain.

Am going to demand he buys another one. I wouldn't have sat a dog in that pram this morning, but had to sit dd in it. angry

Slug in work shoe sounds intersting, but means I would have to make contact with a slug <shudder and barf>

However ds would help out on slug front I'm sure hmm

fizzbuzz Fri 05-Sep-08 13:20:53

Any tips which easy to fold buggy to buy? Dd is 2 and 2months, so doesn't need to last very long.

Our buggy is a PITA to fold up

Oliveoil Fri 05-Sep-08 13:23:32

we had a McClaren fold up umbrella type thing that lived at MIL's

fab, v light and folds to nothing

but just get dh to clean the damn thing! do not buy a new one just because a slug has been in it

tell him it is penance for being a nob and proffer the washing up bowl when he gets in later


mppaw Fri 05-Sep-08 13:23:59

I have a maclaren and a piece of p1ss to fold up....but I think all those sort of buggies are easy to fold away.

reginaphilangy Fri 05-Sep-08 13:29:22

Maclaren. Possibly a quest would suit you best given your dd's age.

fizzbuzz Fri 05-Sep-08 13:38:21

He just shoves everythig in the garden, it drives me fucking mad (I,ve said the f-word and I don't care)

Our garden usually looks like the local dumpit. Washers, hoovers, planks of wood, piles of crap. It drivs me wild. He is so houseproud, he can't stand anything in the house, but doesn't give a shit about the garden which I love, and have spent a fortune on. It is always full of crap, which I can't lift, like fridges or washing machines.

<rant rant rant> Am I the only person who has to put up with this?

mppaw Fri 05-Sep-08 13:50:53

My DP is the opposite...the garden, actually his grass, is his pride and joy. Poor DD is not allowed her stuff on it for too long etc etc.....but when he is in the house...OMG, it is like a bomb has hit it !! Just leaves stuff everywhere.
MEN !!!wink

i suggest you withdraw dh tv control's privelages until he agrees to put up with the pram in the house

either that or make him take all the insects off it

or even buy dd a new pram every time he leaves it outside!!

fizzbuzz Sat 06-Sep-08 08:04:10

He's not talking to me now..........

Lomond Sat 06-Sep-08 08:18:01

Because he ruined the pram? I would put his running shoes out in the rain! wink

misdee Sat 06-Sep-08 08:37:18

get a maclaren triuphm. is so small u can leave it in the car boot or a cupboard easily.

compo Sat 06-Sep-08 08:57:08

agree with Misdee, if he is so anal not to have it in the house, the least he can do is put it in the car boot!

fizzbuzz Sat 06-Sep-08 13:04:01

He's not talking to me as I could have fetched it in.

Well, yes I could, except I fetch it in every time he does it. If I don't it stays out there for ever. This is what happened this time.

2 weeks ago, I removed an unused firegaurd which he had dumped out there in March. It was unused and could have been sold on, but is now covered in rust. Today I removed a garden chair which he got out at the beginning of the summer.......

Will check out a Mclaren Triumph, thanks for the tip
