mrsknc :  I’d probably be annoyed… I can’t stand when Fiance gets sucked into video games for hours on end. (Just like he can’t stand when I’m sucked into my phone.)

I hate gaming as I have brothers who loved their Xbox growing up. They can be super addictive and time wasters. Also it used to make my brother moody.

I was so thankful my husband wasn’t into gaming. Unfortunately someone gave him a PlayStation recently and he will be playing it while I’m weeding the garden. The garden is his territory.  So yes I get your frustration

mrsknc :  I wouldn’t be annoyed. 

He’s a genius for avoiding the mad rush, long lines, and wasted time of Black Friday (I refuse to ever participate, even if items were being given away) because that frees him up to spend more time with you and your child.  I’m sure that was his purpose for the early purchase all along, just ask him. 😉

mrsknc :  I’d be annoyed. He spent more money than he needed too AND ditched us? Some downtime is expected but you made plans.

minimalistbeex :  Just FYI Black Friday doesn’t apply to that. Used to work retail and anything on sale on black friday we could not price match.

A week seems like a looong time to take off work just to get some errands done. I think it was his plan all along to get some stuff done, but also just to relax a bit. I think you each made assumptions about what this week off would look like and hoped the other was on the same page.

Yes, I would be annoyed if he spent an entire week playing video games and ignoring his family and not getting anything done.

I’m sure he works hard and does deserve downtime, but not an entire week of playing video games.

I’d be annoyed if he spent the whole week playing Xbox instead of the to-do list and other plans he’d previously agreed to.

I dont think it would bug me. But if thats all he did all week that would bug me. 

I doubt there will be much of a sale on xboxes but who knows. He should be able to price match

If he played x-box for 12 hours a day, ignored me, and didn’t do anything on the list – yes I’d be very annoyed. But if he just played for an hour or two a day and still got things done and spent time with me I wouldn’t mind at all. I’d just make sure he gives you your own downtime as well!

I’d be a little annoyed but not enough to bring it up if he played it for a day and then continued with things that need to be done and family time. I’d be more  annoyed if he  played it longer than a day and would probably bring it up. I’d return the stupid thing and be real mad if he played it non stop all week. I should mention I hate video games and discourage playing them at all because I think they’re massive time wasters…but then again I’m on this site so who am I to judge?  I would not be upset about the buying it early because Black Friday sales are a nightmare and one of the least relaxing things you can do.

mrsknc :  I think video games need to go at a certain age. I went through this exact thing with an 18 year old boyfriend when I was 25 (yeah…. embarassing on my end). So when I read this I literally thought of an 18 year old. He went out and bought an xBox when he didn’t really have the funds… and sat at home all day trashing my apartment and doing nothing. But playing video games.

So yes I would be annoyed. I know some women don’t care if their guy plays video games… but I can’t deal. Haha. Me being 30 and my SO 31… not acceptable anymore.

mrsknc :  We play Xbox sometimes (dh more than me) but not super regularly, so I wouldn’t call us gamers. 

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with going and buying the Xbox if you guys have funds.

I know your running out of week, but I hope you talked to him and created a plan you were both happy with.  If he gets downtime playing Xbox, you should be getting downtime too where he spends time with the kid and you go do something relaxing!

My husband and I are both gamers- it’s a hobby we have in common, and we both invest a lot of time into it, so I’d be wondering why he spent the money on a console when we have a PS4 and 2 PCs he could have upgraded instead. I would be irritated if he decided to play Xbox instead of doing chores and crossing items off the honey-do list (because that’s just failing to adult) but I’d also be offering to help get that list done so we could play together.
