My Fiance is such a baby when he doesn’t get his way! It doesn’t matter what it is but he will pout and be an all around jerk until he gets his way.
Today apparently is no exception… he comes home (it’s 5:30pm and getting dark) and it’s starting to rain and it’s cold out and he says “do you want to help me put up the christmas lights?” I say “it’s starting to rain so not really”, in my head I’m thinking about how I decorated the house and christmas tree myself (which includes stringing popcorn and cranberries by hand) and never once asked for his help, nor did he offer his exact words were “have fun doing that by yourself”. So when I said no he starts rambling about how if I hear him screaming then I should just call 911, I don’t have to worry about going out there at all just call 911. And when I asked him if he needed help getting the lights out he says “no you said you didn’t want to help me so don’t worry about it, when I asked if you wanted to help this is what I was talking about”.
As he proceeds to stomp around the house and throwing the lights around and storming out of the house. Like really?! So now I have to go help him because I’m sick of him being an ass. Oh and I’m supposed to do this while I’m doing his laundry and cooking him dinner.
Anyone else have a baby for a SO?

Sometimes guys don’t see things clearly or fairly! I can relate in some respects. You do all these things behind the scenes and the one time they need to do something its like the world is ending and one needs to bow down in worship them for their accomplishments. Luckily my baby has been in training, and has learned to appreciate many things 😉

You are a SAINT for putting up with that … I think my SO is scared of what I might do if he acted that way lol

Sounds like a communication issue. Me and Darling Husband will both get like that sometimes. I think the best thing to do is fully explain yourself when you respond to him “honestly I don’t want to, its raining and I want to get laundry and dinner done, but if you want help getting out the lights I can do that.”(guys are simple creatures, they won’t figure out what you’re thinking until you tell them, haha). And then if he’s still not understanding ask “I can tell you’re upset, what’s bothering you?” which makes him have to explain himself and stop the pouting. That’s my advice anyways.

@lawschool bride: haha it’s not so much a communication issue as a spoiled youngest child issue… But working on communication never hurts a relationship 😉
@theredhead: he’s definitely not always like this, just occasionally but it drives me bananas when he does… I wouldn’t be as willing to put up with it if he didn’t work as hard as he does (he works like 80-90 hour weeks) and keeps the roof over our heads. 🙂

Darling Husband is usually super rational and really easy going, but sometimes little things set him off and I just want to stick a pacifier in his mouth. When he’s sick forget it. It’s like he’s suffering from the worst illness ever even when he just has the sniffles.

We don’t live together so if he’s a baby he hasn’t shown yet, but I think he’s smart enough to know it won’t have a good outcome for him if he starts acting childish.

Geeze, I so couldn’t deal like you! Good job!
Darling Husband is usually pretty good about not pouting or wallowing anymore… he was never one to throw mini fits but he definitley was a wallower! <– Thanks to his mom and older sis treating him like he was the only man in their lives. Sheesh.
We did have a mini issue the other night with hanging a large piece wooden picture… Darling Husband hung it crooked AND WAY too high… when I said it was crooked (3 times.. yea I didn’t even realize I said it that many) he simply held in a breathed, sighed, took it down, put his hands to his mouth, and said “I’m not doing that right now” and moved on to something else. He took care of it the next day but it was pretty funny.

Yeah. You’re a saint. I have no tolerance for crap like that and I call him on it in a heartbeat.
Last week my guy found a raisin on the floor- ONE raisin- and said, “You shouldn’t leave this around, the cats might get to it.” Oh. Hell NO! My response? “Oh, I’m sorry. I thought since I’m the only one cleaning the floors on a weekly basis that I was allowed to accidentally drop a single raisin from time to time. Really? A raisin? Like I purposefully left it there?”
He realized real quick how silly it was. But I don’t do the whining game. If I wanted a baby, I’d get pregnant. 😉

OH MY GOODNESS!!! That sounds identical to my Fiance. He is ridiculous!! Not always. But yes, when he doesnt get his way, or I call him out on something. ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!!! He is literally a giant child. “stomping around throwing lights” is EXACTLY what he would do.
Lets give a big cheer to the women who put up with these MEN we love so dearly!!!

@theredhead: dido! Darling Husband would not be my Darling Husband if that was his way of thinking!
@claireos: LOL! Darling Husband does give me crap about stuff on the floor bc of the cats. UGH…I quickly correct him!
