Infuriating Things Your Partner Does

Between giving the 6 year old control of the TV with the 3 year old on Friday (resulting in the rather untimely demise of my 65' lg 4k TV I bought in march ahead of the euros) and her latest. 

She brilliantly stubbed her toe on the bedroom door frame on Tuesday morning, pain got worse during day whilst working and resulted in me, her and the kids doing a tour of South West Cork to go to a hospital in a town I went to twice 5 years ago and vowed never to go near again, due to her not wanting to wait at the big hospital. 

We got lost on the way as she was fannying about on fb than maps ( not a direct route) and due to restrictions noone could come in with her, so I had two unfed kids, in a backwards town that had no open takeaway. 

I'm trying to feed the kids in the car and she appears with crutches. 

Yup broken toe and has to keep off it for 2 weeks.

4 hours round trip, to avoid the hour trip to the big hospital the other direction 

So I'm running around like Mary fucking Poppins whilst trying to work from home and deal with a potty training TV destroying toddler. 

And she's complaining about me having a wee drink. 

I thought this thread would never again reach the heights of @red23's Colombian escapades, but this..... this has potential.

It never ceases to amaze me how long women can talk pish about utterly innocuous nonsense. 

It's not just women tbf. I find myself just staring into the abyss when my mates are talking shite in the pub which could have had a beginning, middle and end summed up by saying "the new barmaid is hot, iy."

She's away with work for a while, and will almost always phone me on the way to/from work.

 

Me "How are you"

Her "Ok you?"

"Yeah alright, up to much?"
"On my way to work, you?"
"nope nothing"

 

.....

 

 

 

.....

 

 

 

Her "well if you're not gonna talk I might as well hang up"

Me "cool bye"

 

 

Honestly no idea why she phones half the time, and she then gets pissy at me if neither of us have anything to say. 

 

She also phones me all the fucking time when I'm WFH for the most mundane shite, and gets annoyed when I say I'm working and need to go.

Aye I have to hold my hands up and admit to being that fella too. I tell stories like I'm narrating a Russian novel, with that couple of pages at the start telling you who everyone is and fully setting the scene before I go on to say that the cafe round the corner is really good.

The wife is ill and was planning to call the doctor yesterday. I asked if she'd got antibiotics. 15 solid minutes barely taking breath about a malfunction with the telephone queuing system, about how she had to send a photo but mostly about what she would have said in the event that the doctor had said something different from what the doctor had actually said, branching off into entirely hypothetical conversations in which she was outraged by the (completely imaginary) medical incompetence. I didn't even care if she'd got antibiotics and was only feigning an interest to keep her happy. 

Not gonorrhoea or anything before you start.

Feel your pain on this one.

I'm one of those folk who, if I have nothing to say, i dont say anything...a quiet bloke.  Missus and I have been together 15 years...so you would think she know the score...but no...

She caught Covid last Thursday and I got symptoms on Saturday so both off work this week.   Mon/Tues I felt rubbish but Wednesday I was feeling better and as I was bored out my nut I decided to just 'go back' to work and as I'm mainly working from home now I thought I might as well crack on with work that wont get done when I'm off sick.

Thursday afternoon she went off on one because I'd been buried in work all morning(catching up) and because I hadn't come downstairs for "a chat" all morning.    Bearing in mind I haven't seen anyone, spoken to anyone(outside of work), or had any other interactions where she hasn't been there -I have f*ck all to talk about....but despite me telling her this I  am ignorant.

The chat would no doubt be her telling me a load of pish about what she's seen on facebook...

This was us during the last lockdown. Both working form home, mostly in the same room. We just ran out of stuff to say so I didn't say much at all. All we could talk about was stuff that was coming up through work - and we work for the same employer.

And after a while she was saying to me "You don't talk to me much any more".

We're going out in about 45 minutes and she's still on a video call with her friend. Going by how long she usually takes to get ready, I don't see this ending well.

Tell her you are leaving when you said you would, it doesn't mater how ready she is.*

* she is most likely to be comfortably presentable, only worrying about completely unimportant shite, tell her to get the f**k on with it**

 

**yes I'm single.

Feel your pain, 3 years living together and I haven’t even come close to being able to look like i care about what she’s telling me when I absolutely don’t

She’s developed a strange habit of FaceTiming rather than phoning me and it’s beginning to do my tits in.


Engagement cancelled. My nine year old son does this and I just refuse to answer it. Call me like a normal human being.

My girlfriend has a friend round tonight for drinks. I don’t think that her friend has stopped for a breath in hours, just a constant stream of noise from her since she got here.

I’m on call tomorrow, am burst and giving her the look to say, can you please get her a taxi booked and tell her to f**k off?

She’s either not getting the look or patching me. Think it’s the latter.

I don’t appreciate phone calls even. WhatsApp me like a normal human being.

Is 3 not a bit late to be potty training? 

He's not long turned 3, we planned to do it at start of summer but due the mother in law doing a Klinsmann over her coffee table and breaking her hip, we had her staying with her us and out of bounds the downstairs toilet with her commode. 

To be fair, duck to water for the wee felly, 3 weeks in, no accidents, dry nights and he already stands up to piss. Took the older one months to do that.

“Someone told me this in B&M the other day so I’m sure if it’s true or not but …..”

Presumably this didn't end with "...apparently they're looking for more staff"?
