To feel somewhat upset with this Valentine's card from my husband?
330

Boysgrownbutstillathome · 14/02/2021 13:10

My husband is a typical last-minute card and present-buyer, but this really takes the biscuit. His excuses - it was the last one left in Tesco Express, Asda was too busy and he had forgotten his glasses. Excuse for not buying one earlier - he is recovering from his Covid jab ( he had it on Thursday). Excuse for not buying one before then - none.

At least your partner actually got you a card.

Hahaha! Did he go self checkout?

Bless him, god does love a trier.

I wouldn’t be disappointed, but may use it as a excuse for extra attention on Valentine’s night Wink A long massage first would be nice for example.

Lol yeah that's pretty crap but I would probably just laugh and take the mickey for at least the next year, and expect him to pay for a takeaway tonight. I personally wouldnt get really cross, but it depends on your relationship and how seriously you take valentines day. Did you get him a card and present?

I think it is funny! I'm now imagining your husband to be a Jane Austin gentleman who loves your handsome eyes but worries about your income of ten pounds a year!

The handsome bit wouldn't bother me but 'fiance' (or even 'fiancee') when married would be a bit strange!

YABU. He got you a card. You know he is a last minute present buyer. Lower your expectations or tell him well in advance what you expect.

If he hadn't got you a card you'd be upset. He can't go around loads of shops just for a card. Shopping is dangerous enough as it is.

YABU to still bother with valentines when you're married and presumably been together many years.

I would imagine the OP expected that her husband would buy a card that says ‘wife’ and not ‘handsome fiancée’ I’m not sure what part of that is unreasonable or high in expectation

Oh my! Yeh I would have rather he didn’t bother. That’s just rude. It would be funny if your not in the situation

That is crap! He could at least have snipped the top off, the design on the card means he could have cut it into quite a nice shape if he cut around the top heart. Yes I think I'd rather have had a homemade card or some kind of love voucher than one calling me a bloke. Still, at least he thinks you're handsome! Grin

My mum was struggling to get a card for my daughter's birthday, so ended up getting a card with "Happy Birthday Grandson" on it. She had then crossed out son with a marker and written daughter. It was quite funny!
