Our wedding is in 2 weeks. I just got my wedding band in the mail earlier this week after a nerve-wracking mix up with the usps tracking system.
Because of this, I asked FI to keep and eye out for ring his (that he ordered on etsy) and make sure he sent it to the right address. At the time he wasn’t sure if he’d had it sent to his work or our new apartment or what, so I asked him to double check and make sure things were in order.
Apparently he didn’t check anything. He got the tracking number emailed to him today (the seller said he forgot to email when he shipped it). When he checked the usps tracking it said it was delivered today…FI checked the mailbox again and it’s not here. That’s when he realized he had it sent to his address that he live at before we moved in together, 2 apartments ago!
Luckily his old roommate still lives there and can hold on to it for him, but he won’t even pick up the phone to ask her if it’s there! He said he’d email her instead and he can pick it up “when I get a chance”. WTF??
I’m sure I’m overreacting, but it seriously seems that he doesn’t give a crap about this at all. End rant – thanks for listening.

Yeah, I would be the one freaking out about this and my FI would be all “eh, no big deal…I’ll get it when I can” I can totally relate with you LOL
In situations like this, I explain that “I know I’m crazy, but I REALLY need you to get it. NOW.” Somehow, by claiming I am mentally insane, he does what I ask. And sleeps with one eye open. Huh.

@LovelyLaura: Yeah, I wish! He’s too stubborn to do it just cause I asked him to. He sent her a Facebook message. Since it’s Friday night and she’s a partier, she probably won’t respond until tomorrow afternoon.
He refuses to call her. He also still has a key and he could have gone over there already. He’s being a jerk about it because he doesn’t like calling people. He refuses to let me call her. He is seriously pissing me off right now 🙁

OMG he’s still being ridiculous about this today. His old roommate never got back to him via Facebook (big surprise). He texted her and she didn’t respond, because I’m sure she has no idea how important it is. He won’t let me call her, and he won’t call her himself.
He still has the key to the outer door of his old building where they drop the mail, so he’s going to go over there tomorrow – in the morning before they wake up so he doesn’t have to see his supposed “friends”!
If it’s not there he says he’s going to order a different, cheap one – this is a custom made wooden ring! It’s quite possible that she brought it inside the apartment for safe keeping. Still so frustrated with him being such a wimp 🙁

WTF??? My husband would’ve jumped in the car and headed straight over!

@strawbabies: Yeah, a normal person would 😉 He went over there with his key and got it on Sunday. The old roommate never got back to him at all. It was just a weird situation.
