We were meant to be having a "night in" together. Baby been asleep since 7, he WILL wake by 2...DH been on the bloody phone since 7. We were meant to make dinner together, have nearly finished cooking it on my own. He knows I have to be in bed before 10 as the night shift with DS starts at about 2 and is 1-2 hours all night...AIBU to want him to stop chatting? Have cast him a few dirty looks which get an "I'm sorry...I'll be right there looks." Sigh.

re not being unreasonable at all. Maybe say in a loud voice, "Dinner is ready!". I have done this several times.

Who is he on the phone with? If it is a friend/family member YANBU. Tell him to get the hell off of the phone and help.

If it is work, then YAB a bit U. These things are deeply annoying, but they happen. Even though you are tired and annoyed, try to not let it ruin the evening!

Not only is it just a friend, he spent first 15 mins of it chatting to the wife of friend, who he HATES! Have just gone and given the look of death and he has just hung up and taken over dinner prep.

No, YANBU to want him to stop chatting, but it might be that it is hard to extricate himself from the conversation he's having...

Either way, agree that next time you are having a "night in", you let 1571 take the calls for you both.

Hope by now you are enjoying your dinner.
