My SO just made me bawl my eyes out over something stupid, really. Its not really a big deal but I dont know why I let it upset me so much.
A little back ground first, my SO is an avid Chicago fan, Bulls, Cubs, Bears. Ever since we have been together he has always told me that going to a Bulls game and watching D.Rose play is his DREAM. That was one thing he wanted to do in his life, is go to a Bulls game, along with a Bears, and Cubs game of course.
I never thought we would get to go any time soon bc of the fact that Chicago is 11 hours away (driving) from where we live and we never have to time to take off of work to take the trip up there, even if we flew and financial situations also.
This morning a co-worker and I were talking about sports since both our SO’s are very much in to sports and she told me that the Bulls will probably have a game in Memphis Tennessee, thats great bc Memphis is only 2 1/2 hours away from where we live! It never crossed my mind that the Bulls would have an away game in one of our neighboring states!
At this point im just DYING to tell my SO, it would be a GREAT Christmas gift and a great expirience for not only him but me too since we have never been to a pro. game before. So im just bursting with joy right now but then I remembered that he is going to see his grandpa that lives in Oklahoma during the Christmas holdays. That kind of had me worried but the way he talked, it sounded like he would be back the weekend after Christmas and the game would be on that monday, the next week.
So I call him and ask him if he knows for sure when he will be back from oklahoma and he said he wasnt sure and I tell him that we have a chance to go to a Bulls game but its on the 30th of December and he tells me no that he doesnt want to go…..
CRUSHED ME…..As soon as he said that, I just start bawling and I dont know why, Im still getting teary eyed and upset as Im typing this…..I asked him why and he told me that he might stay in oklahoma longer than expected….
Im so upset…I finally am able to do something for my SO (from what I understand was one of his main goals in life) that I can afford and he turns it down….I feel so unappreciated, mad, hurt. I thought for sure that he would be beyond happy and excited. I figured he would jump on the chance to go see a Chicago Bulls game, even if its against a team that he doesnt care much about. I thought he would be drooling over it…..but I was wrong.
Would someone give me a voice of reason…
He plans to go to Oklahoma on the 20th of December and he usually only stays there for a week, which he would be home like a day or two before the Bulls game, if he stayed for a week. Im so upset bc he always goes to oklahoma for a week and then when I tell him that we are able to make plans afterwards, he suddenly changes his original plans and tells me that hes going to be there longer than expected….
