This is my first post in BTS.
Now, I've been maried for almost 12 years.
I've got 10 yr old and 3 yr old daughters.
Me and my wife get along pretty darn good, BUT....
About once a month there is an episode that goes something like this:
I call my wife:
Me: "Hey honey. You know today is Monday, and I know you planned on doing the grocery shopping today, but it might be easier if you skipped that
and just take the girls to ballet and let me do the shopping. This way we can both get home around the same time..."
Me: "Oh,.......... it's you...."
Wife: "What is that supposed to mean."
Me: "Nothing, I'll see you at home, love you. Bye."
Later at home I'm dragging in the groceries:
Me: "Honey, I've got some more bags out there, can you put this in the refridgerator?"
Wife: "You wanted to do the grocery shopping, I guess you should put it away like I normally do when I do the shopping."
You get the idea...
Now, it only usually lasts about one evening, sometimes bleads over into two, and I've learned to kind of accept it. But every so often I'm like
(to myself) you know what? This is BS...
Why does she get a built in excuse to be a *bleep* to me once a month.
When I screw up (which I do on occasion) I don't have the luxury of saying "Sorry about yesterday honey, I guess I wasn't really feeling myself.
You know, it's a hormonal thing....."
No. Everytime I act like an A** I have to face up to it and say: "Sorry, honey I was being an A**"
Well, that is all I wanted to say. I guess some of you married guys (or guys with live-in girlfriends) can identify with this. How do you handle
Ladies, What's the best way to avoid confrontation during these touchy times?
