For not being overly enthusiastic about DP's new job?

He keeps changing his hours (three changes now this year) and new job will mean new types of shifts again. I work my shifts around DP's shifts and my shifts are now set up until the end of June. DP won't inform anyone about this to try and delay if necessary his start date. He just says it might well be after then anyway. This will mean if it isn't that I will have to try and swap/change my shifts at work as mine can be flexible and his are set in stone. Which will place all stress on me simply because he won't even ask. AIBU? I just can't feel all that pleased for him

Why won't he ask, I don't understand, no wonder you'e so upset.

Because he is stubborn and dosen't want to be awkward!

Think your DH does the same as mine, and it's a pita when they do this.

but what about explaining to hi that he is being awkward - to you!

Nope - he's not shifting and not happy that I am not dancing in the streets about his new opportunity (robbery squad if you are right rebel!!). Apparently it will be at least 30 days so about 2 weeks worth of shifts to sort out.

Ah, same job (although mine's attached to immigration at the moment) and having had his attachment extended once, we don't know whether or not it will be extended again at the end of June, still a while away, but we need to cover the school holidays, with very little childcare, and me with very little leave, so in a bit of a quandary as we're not sure where he will be (as there's no guarantee when he comes back to force that he'll go back to the same place/same shift).

To be fair to DH, everything's up in the air, and for once it's not his fault, lol.

Ah see he's been on crime equiries since end of Jan. They left it until his final week to confirm whether he would be staying on there, and he did but I'd had to work my shifts all around his, which now he is on CE still makes it all pants, I've been working every weekend for the past month! Overall I have found the police down here to be reasonably child friendly. It is DP who isn't!!

I guess we are lucky not to have to worry about school holidays yet - good lord. Will it ever get easier?!

YANBU. its unfair to expect you to change yours just because it is a bit more flexible.
