UGH! Why are men such pains sometimes?!
He had a guy quit at work (FI is a manager) so Fiance has had to take over the delivery route this driver abandoned. This means he’s up early and on the road. But he’s also been home late, which is fine. Except he is doing so many little things this week that are really irritating me! He has told me he’d pick up his son from daycare 3 days this week, then at the last minute (4:45pm, I leave work at 5) texted me to tell me he wouldn’t make it. School is on the way home for me, so not a big issue, but he knows well before 4:45 that he won’t make it when he still has to drive back across the city to the office, drop his truck, and drive all the way back (45 minutes each way with no traffic). But he leaves it until the LAST minute to inform me, which means I take a slightly different route home that lands me in traffic. Nothing to be done, but at least I could have been prepared to sit in traffic for half an hour (I usually take a back road home and miss it all, but it puts me out past the school/daycare and I can’t turn left onto the road to get to it so can’t go that way if I have to get son)
Last night we had an old friend of mine from high school coming for dinner, whom I have not seen in 14 years! Our house wasn’t overly tidy, so I had asked Fiance if he could pick up his son and get him ready for bed and fed so I could run home from work and get dinner in the oven, and the house tidied up before our guest arrived at 7 for dinner. I got the 15 minute heads up I can’t get son, so I had to change route home, pick up son, and do EVERYTHING at home like a mad fool before our guest arrived. Fiance walked in the door at 10 to 7, said goodnight to son, then headed straight for the shower, after tossing the casual question at me if I was “pissed” at him for some reason as he walked upstairs. (2 glasses of wine later I was feeling ok lol)
Today he asked me to book the registry appointment for saturday, no specifics, just saturday. So I did. I texted him right away once I booked it, around 1pm letting him know it was saturday at 10am. No reply. So I texted him again around 3:30 asking if he had gotten my text. I get “yup” as a reply. I asked him if that was ok. He replied “you will have to go alone if it’s at 10, Son has a dentist appt Sat am” I reply right away, “What time”. Still no reply over an hour later so I can reschedule the appt, and why the feck didn’t he tell me off the start son had a dentist appt and to book an afternoon appt, and then to not reply.
Gah, so irritated today with him, just needed to vent it off before I go home and get cranky lol!
