We had words last weekend, he was an arse and did that annoying storming off thing that really winds me up.
I was ironing and the nearest thing to hand was the beer fridge. So I took 2 out at a time and shook them really hard and then put them back. I did another 2, and felt a bit calmer.
Didn't think anything of it, until last night when we were watching TV and he opened a bottle of beer and it exploded all over the floor.
I was impressed that they were still so fizzy.
He wasn't impressed when the next 3 did the same. grin
I really was lmao inside but had to feign ignorance.
especially when he said "It's like someone has been shaking them"
He put it down to the fact that they were on their side. hmm
It was bloody funny though.
Unreasonable of me?

That depends on who had to clear up the mess...

purepurple Sat 29-Aug-09 08:55:50

He did.
I was too busy drinking wine and eating Roses.

I used to do little subversive things like that all the time to my Ex. Kept me amused for years. But then I'm just evil grin

We have a new carpet in the sitting room so beer all over the floor would affect me as much as husband, plus it's our beer not his beer. Sounds a silly thing to do in your own house, very passive aggressive.

Who cleared up the mess?

purepurple Sat 29-Aug-09 09:18:04

silly but very satisfying and very funny
I had to wait until he went to the toilet to really laugh
I don't drink beer.
We have no carpet in the kitchen, it is all tiled and laminate in the lounge
He said "I've mopped more up than I've drunk" grin

We have a new rule, no drinking during the week.
Partly to save our livers and partly to save some money.
I just buy more expensive wine at the weekend.

I have done that before to my DHs cider, when I was pregnant and REALLY cross with him over something...I too feigned ignorance..when it fizzed all over him <snurk>
It IS naughty though..!!

purepurple Sat 29-Aug-09 09:38:39

I have just remembered, I didn't iron his clothes either. I just folded them up as if I had. He'll never notice wink

hmm also i didnt know that if you shook a bottle of beer it stays fizzy for that long!?

good to know for future referance!

purepurple Sat 29-Aug-09 12:57:08

I didn't expect it to still be fizzy either.
When the first one fizzed, I was surprised and felt a little pang of guilt. But it didn't last too long.

Alambil Sat 29-Aug-09 13:02:40

that's hilarious

purepurple Sat 29-Aug-09 13:04:52

I bet you can't guess what I did that caused the storming off in the first place?

elmofan Sat 29-Aug-09 13:08:31

ok you have to tell us now grin

tbh i might try this on dh but i doubt i could keep a straight face grin

purepurple Sat 29-Aug-09 13:16:47

I was on the computer, sorting out his prescription certificate and apparently, I sighed.It was because I couldn't remember the account number and sort code, not because I didn't want to do it (which is what he assumed)
He got all huffy and threw the cheque book and flounced out.
So I didn't do it. then he shouted at me, I shouted back, he flounced out (again).
Then I shook the beer. grin

your dh should come stay in our house for a week , he would soon learn not to be so touchy sensitive grin
