In a fit of drunkeness generosity I offered to iron his work shirts of an evening. (he goes to bed v early because he works silly hours).

Bastard has just gone up to bed and casually thrown a hirt down to me.

He's been home since lunchtime.

I've been out of the house since 7.30 this morning, driven 150 miles, been to school, done some learning, driven home, been to see DD2 in athletics tournement, dropped DD2 off at the door then been to new parents evening at big school, popped into waitrose for some bits, then come home, loaded the dishwasher and had quick shower.

I haven't even had any bloody dinner yet.

would it be unreasonable to go and shove the hot iron up DH's nose?

Unreasonable to shove the iron up his nose.

Reasonable to line the dog's bed with the shirt.

DH does his own ironing.

Say no more.

bless him, he usually does it himself. it is my own drunken fault for offering when i wasn't feeling quite so bloody exhausted.

i haven't ironed it well. there are some creases left.

So do you usually iron his shirts or not?

OP says you said you would every night.

Then you say he does it.

This is a very very very important AIBU so I want to judge properly grin

usually DH wears an unironed shirt (!) under a jumper so it doesn't matter about thecreases.

now its a bit hot he can't wear his jumper so irons the shirts.

smetmes he does thm

somtimes I do depending on if i'm doing some ironing anyway which isn't often.

DH does most the houswork/cooking/shopping/gardning/scrubbing/etc etc so I suggested while pissed I iron his shirt for him in the evenig if he needed one the next day.

I wasn't expectinghim to take me up on my offer afetr a really long tough day but having made the offer i couldn't then refuse but it pissed me off a bit.


unreasonable to shove the iron? or my own stupid fault?

Get him to buy you a new iron first, one of those fancy steam generator ones.

Then you're free to ruin your old one by shoving it wherever you like.

Well you both sound very nice and normal to me.

I think he shouldn't have chucked his shirt at you. But maybe it was a joke?

Answer is. to make sexually deviant promises when drunk and carry them out there and then, rather than long term housewifely bollocks.

Thus everyone happy.
