DH in a foul mood and he's ruined my weekend

(23 Posts)

DH does this every two or three months and it's really starting to make me question the relationship.

He went out on Friday night. Got home at midnight, a bit merry but not drunk.

And has been in an awful mood since he got out of bed yesterday morning.

He's moody, snappy, uncommunicative, rolls his eyes if I speak and has said nasty things to me like he always does if he's in a mood. Yesterday I was asking him something, perfectly nicely and politely and he said 'You're a nagger' and kept looking at me really nastily and saying in a nasty voice 'Nagger'.

Today he just disappeared upstairs halfway through the afternoon and had a 2 hour nap.

All childcare has been left to me this weekend. However when I told DD off about something this morning DH came down on me like a ton of bricks, in front of DD.

Every time I have spoken to him this evening he's snapped at me as if I've asked a stupid question or as if I'm something he's scraped off his shoe.

I have had enough.

No wonder. What next?

woowoo22 Sun 26-Jul-15 23:07:22

What a dick. What do you want to do?

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Sun 26-Jul-15 23:07:59

Hmm, any other suspicious behaviour? It's totally not on, we all have moods, but doesn't excuse being rude and nasty. But it sounds terribly like something else is going on.

It's not right, and you know it.

Is it possible he is taking out feelings of guilt on you?

whooshbangprettycolours Mon 27-Jul-15 06:51:49

Who else would he treat like this? His friends? His family? Or wouldn't he dare be so rude and disrespectful? Would you treat anyone like this?

This is out of control disrespect and tells you all you need to know about him.

I'm sorry OP but he's not worthy of you.

Is it possible he's taking something on his nights out? He could be coming down. Any secret drug use would be a total deal breaker for me.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Mon 27-Jul-15 07:19:52

Does he only do this after he drinks? Or, as pps are suggesting, does he do drugs on his nights out? Sounds like he's seriously mood-altered, if he's normally not like this.

But then - IS he normally like this, only a little less obviously? Or is he normally a decent, caring, loving, respectful man and father?

The other option (sorry) is that he's met someone else on his night out and it's made him question being with you. But if he does it every 2-3 months, then that's less likely than him taking something, I think.

No wonder you've had enough!

Do you get to go out on fri and stagger back at midnight?

Do you get to disappear upstairs for 2 hrs sleep mud afternoon leaving him to childcare?

Thought not.

Your relationship is unequal and he's taking you for granted.

Calling you a nagger? I despise that word, it's never used to describe men. I wouldn't put up with his shit, bet you can't even have a discussion as it's not what he wants to hear?

Botanicbaby Mon 27-Jul-15 07:38:08

mid not mud!

Someone else would be welcome to him, what despicable behaviour.

Charlie97 Mon 27-Jul-15 07:56:47

I'm with Dorothy! has he taken something on his night out?

But whatever, you don't deserve this and I would be seriously issuing a no more notice and mean it!

pocketsaviour Mon 27-Jul-15 07:57:57

Does he use coke? because this sounds like a typical comedown.

Thishurtsalot Mon 27-Jul-15 08:03:47

Honestly? It sounds like he's tired and grumpy.
Doesn't everyone feel like this after a late night?
Not excusing his behaviour but it doesn't sound like drugs or women etc.

Yarp Mon 27-Jul-15 08:04:10

Good thinking everyone

Are these moods always after a night out OP?

DixieNormas Mon 27-Jul-15 09:03:06

My first thought was coke, what a nob head

CrispyFern Mon 27-Jul-15 09:07:00

Coming down off coke doesn't turn a normal nice person into a complete knob!
If he's acting like a knob, it's because he's a knob.

taking coke in the first place makes people knobs. Imo

Joysmum Mon 27-Jul-15 15:14:34

There's s big difference between being snappy and being dam right nasty. He sounds nasty which I wouldn't stand for, snappy I wouldn't like me but since I've been known to be snappy then occasional snappiness wouldn't be a deal breaker like nastiness would be.

Branleuse Mon 27-Jul-15 15:30:12

has he been out clubbing.

Thinking of the old "suicide tuesday" after a saturday night on mdma

Imnotaslimjim Mon 27-Jul-15 16:35:46

Is it always after a night out? I'm wondering if he's feeling guilty for something......

MagpieCursedTea Mon 27-Jul-15 16:40:46

Have you spoken to him about these episodes when he's back to his normal self? If he's usually more reasonable, I would try and engage him in an honest conversation about it then rather than trying to talk to him when he's being so unpleasant.
It's not an acceptable way to behave but if it's out of character for him then I'd give him a chance to explain and/or work out what's causing it.
