My friend’s engagement party is coming up. In our culture, the engagement party is a black tie, elaborate event. 200 guests so basically a large American wedding. My SO has known about the party since March when we got the invites. Since then, I’ve asked 2-3 times if he knew what he was wearing. We don’t go to formal events often so if his shirt or slacks didn’t fit, we had time to go shopping. Each time I brought it up, he made some joke and gave me gruff and said, “Later, later.”
The party is this weekend. He texts me now saying, “I know I’m being a pain in the ass but can we go shopping for new dress slacks? Mine are pretty old and don’t fit great.”
really?! you couldn’t have taken 2 minutes and tried an outfit on in the past 6 weeks? Now, with only a couple of days to go, we have to go shopping. And my guy is pretty picky about his clothing. Seriously, he is being a pain in the ass. Ugh, men…

Can’t live with them, can’t live without them… or could we? lol I can totally see my man doing this and I would probably smack him upside the head(gently of course, maybe) and then take the man shopping and make him buy me a nice dinner 🙂

If this were Darling Husband I would tell him “Sure you can go shopping, you have X days, but I am busy this week.”
If he is gonna procrastinate he is not rewarded with my company or assitance. He knows how to buy a pair of pants.

Yeah, this has happened to me before. He bought a few suits months ago, all with pants that came unhemmed so you can tailor them. So 3 days before a wedding we were supposed to go to, he asks me if I have taken them in to be hemmed yet. Umm, you know this takes like over a week, right?! And they have to measure YOU. So annoying..

I told my husband one thousand times to take his tools out of his work truck and put them in the garage.
“That is such a hassle. I will just get a flood light.”
What happened last night? Someone stole his tools!
That said, I am pretty bad about being stubborn myself.
