Dh's on being dad
I was just thinking about dh's behaviors lately and wonder how some of you manage with your dh's when it comes to some of the things they say or do.
My particular situation happened the other day. Friday to be exact. Sd got the bike she was using stolen out of the yard. So when she got up to work the next morning she just walked to work....she was still mad at me so she didn't bother to ask me for a ride. I probably would not have any way.
But...dh gets home for lunch and asks if I gave sd a ride to work. I tell him no. So he calls her work, to let her know that the bike was stolen....hello?...pretty sure she figured that out, unless he thought she might think I hid it from her?....@@ Then he proceeds to tell her that she can call when she needs a ride. !*#% WTF?
This would then me, she is to call me!
I drop dh off at work, and I just can't even speak to him I am so mad. He is oblivious. He picked up that I was upset about something, but I didn't have time to get into it with him.
So, I pick him up after work and he finally figured it out on his own lol. He apologized, said he should not have called her. Then he had to go and do his errands once we dropped me and our son off at home.
Sd starts calling about 5:30, incessantly. I didn't pick up. House phone, cell phone, house phone, cell phone....(it is MY cell phone). Leaving nasty little messages. Dh gets home about 6:30, I tell him sd has been calling for an hour to say she is off work. She could have been home long ago had she started walking. She walked to work for goodness sake. But oh yeah....dad told her to call.
He goes and picks her up.
That is the kind of sh*t that just bugs me to no end with him.
Do they do this kind of thing out of guilt or what??
I am inclined to think it is out of some sort of guilt that he caters to her while still trying to teach her something...and little does he realize that he is only undermining himself.
