So last night, I was pretty mad at my SO for, well, being forgetful. Lol I’m not mad anymore and now I find the situation to be pretty funny. But oh ladies, I was PISSED last night.
Here’s what happened. SO and I are eligible for a discount on our cell phone bill through his work. In order to get the discount though, SO needs to get his paycheck stubs and go to the Sprint store to get it done.
Last Saturday, he picked me up from my place and we planned to go together to the store on our way to Atlanta. But SO tells me that he forgot his paycheck stubs.
I’m mildly annoyed at this because I had reminded him twice that we needed to go to the store. But I let it go. And he promises me that he’ll go on Monday after he gets off work at 5:00.
Well Monday comes around and he realizes that there is not a local Sprint store. So he decides to postpone it until Wednesday, which was yesterday. Yesterday he was in town visiting his friends because he had a day off from work. His plan was to hang out with his friends all day THEN go to the store.
So yesterday I say to him “Okay but please don’t forget! Also, you need to find out what time the store closes so you can make sure to get there in time.”
I was worried that he would lose track of time and forget. But he assures me that he will go and get it done. And he gently tells me that I’m nagging him.
So I back off, all the while thinking “Okay, he’s probably not going to get this done but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.” Plus I didn’t want to be that annoying, nagging girlfriend so I said okay and let the matter drop.
Last night I text him and ask him how it went at the store. He says to me, “They closed before I got there. Friday! I’ll spend the night tomorrow and do it after I leave your place on Friday.”
Y’all…at this point, I HAVE HAD IT! We were supposed to have this done LAST SATURDAY! And now it’s almost a whole week later. I mean, come on, I want a freaking discount on our cell phone bill! :p
So I’m just fuming and trying to stay calm at the same time. I calmly let him know that I was upset while suppressing the urge to yell at him and say “SEE! THIS IS WHY I HAVE TO NAG! IF I DON’T, SHIT DOESN’T GET DONE!”
He apologized, of course, and did everything he could to appease me. But I still had to get off the phone with him because I knew that I was on the verge of yelling and I didn’t want this to escalate into a fight. So we hung up and said good night. I went to bed.
At 1:20 AM, he sends me this text. “Hey. I know you won’t see this until morning, but I think you’re a sweet, wonderful, beautiful girl, and I can’t wait until January. Love you.” (We are moving in together in January)
Gah! So now how could I stay mad at him after he sent that sweet text? 🙂
Anyway, I just thought I’d share this because I find it pretty funny now. HOWEVER. If he doesn’t get his butt to the Sprint store tomorrow….I will not find this funny anymore! :p
Let’s hope for his sake, he gets to the store. Lol!
So ladies. Do you have any similar ancedotes to this? Is your SO hopelessly forgetful like mine? :p
