To think that after 15 years (Yes that's half way to a second decade together) dh could let this one little moment of madness on my part go?

So 15 years ago as newly weds, very affectionate and loving etc etc we were staying with dh's parents for Christmas.
When getting ready to leave for the train home he asked me where the tickets were so he could see where our seats were reserved. We were standing in the hall of his parent's house with his mum and siblings all there too.

I replied - 'I don't know, you're the reservations rabbit' Meaning the cute and cuddly peson responsible for those particular tickets obviously <<cringe x 100>>

I think his brother may actually have been sick. 15 years later and dh is still bringing this up. Mentioned it today in fact.

AIBU to think he should let this one moment go now? Or am I just lucky he didn't request an immediate divorce? grin

YABU!! He has the right to go on and on and on about it forever and ever and ever!! grin

Reservations rabbit?!

Sorry - he'll still be dragging that rabbit's mouldy old corpse out in another fifteen years!

No, sorry.

That one will live with you forever.

The only way to stop him mentioning it is to somehow goad him into saying something that is equally cringe-inducing to remember, then making a bargain never to speak of it if he never says "reservations rabbit" again.

Aaaw. So cute

Is he also the toilet-cleaning tortoise?

The bin bunny?

The washing up wallaby?

Reservations rabbit?

My God, you are lucky he's put up with you this long!

Oh Lord!

It was a moment of madness I tell you. Only two words.

They don't tell you about this sort of stuff before you get hitched.......

You obviously haven't taken this seriously.

Really, it's up to you to show how sorry you are for such reprehensible behaviour.

Perhaps you should agree to some kind of counselling to show that you really are serious about saving this marriage?

NorthernLurker Sun 20-Jan-13 19:07:45

You're right. I'm a bad person.

Especially as I'm now contemplating using 'bin bunny' when he comes home later. Jamie has enabled me to sink to a new low........

He obviously wants this to be his nickname and keeps reminding you in the hope you call him it again. Go on you know you want to.

Think yourself lucky, that comment could have landed you with the role of divorced duckie.

He is duty bound to bring it up as often as he can, for the rest of your life, and to ensure it is carved elegantly on your headstone.

Sanity I don't think you're taking this seriously!

Yes he had the tickets. Of course he had the tickets. He's very good with things like that which is why I made him the reservations rabbit.


I need help clearly.

Coulda been worse. Imagine if you had said Weservations Wabbit!

I sense a new MN phrase in the making...

I am going to go against the tide here and say that I think this relationship can be saved - but you have to genuinely want to change and show that you are committed - perhaps you could visit a counselling capybara?
