I gave Dh the stink eye, now all hell has broken loose.

Have I over reacted?

This morning I admit I was in a mood. I'm a Sahm and do everything to get the kids ready for school. Dh just sorts himself out and goes to work. As its bin day today I put the bag in and asked if if could wheel the bin to the road. He forgot and got in the car. I took it and gave him a hard stare on my way past. (So far so childish!)

Now I would expect any normal person to then say 'sorry I forgot'. Instead if got out of the car with a 'how dare you look at me like that' attitude, stormed into the house and slammed a door in my face then went to work.

I texted telling him I can't put up with his aggressive behavior when facing mild criticism and not to bother coming home until if can see what he's like. He has form for this and I don't want the kids learning to be like this.

WTF now?

I think we've all gathered it's not about the damn bins but about moods and attitudes and the kids seeing it.

They both sound as bad as one another, both sulky and moody and prone to irrational outbursts. She doesn't want the kids to see how the dad behaves but she seems to be just as bad. She already admitted she was in a mood that morning before he even forgot about the bin, but she happily stormed out there giving the evil eye all over a blinking dustbin.

He's probably just as fed up as she is. They either work it through for the sake of the kids, or go their separate ways, also for the sake of the kids.

Asolutely Twinklestein. In fact, you might say it's enough to put someone in a bad mood, isn't it?

Although being in a mood and looking at people in the wrong way is as bad as, if not worse than all those things.

Apparently.

Wtf a man got pissed off because he was given a dirty look for being forgetful? He probably has a porn addiction.

helpful

has anyone got anything useful to say to the OP, or is this thread going to keep getting bumped by randoms popping in to add increasingly stupid and inane soundbites ?

I have a feeling op has given up on it and I can't say I blame her shock

flippinada Thu 14-Nov-13 22:05:15

Yes, fair point Mists. Hope op is ok.
