O/T - Big Ol' Babies
I have to know, am I the only one with a DH that is a complete man child when he is "sick"?!?!?! I STG I am so over being married right now! At approx 8am my overgrown man baby started complaining that his "intestines hurt". This is a complaint he has frequently which probably has to do with his awful diet but that won't ever change. Anyways, I am also annoyed that he says his intestines hurt, trying to make "I have a tummy ache" sound more severe or something...IDK! Well when he started his whining I told him to take a pepto and/or anti-diarhea pill (we have both at home) and he doesn't go to work until 9am. I knew he was going to turn this into an over dramatic display of dying with sickness. He doesn't get paid if he takes off work. He also always gets mad b/c I am not sympathetic (I swear I can almost predict when he will play sick). He continues to complain about his "symptoms" until about 11am when his work "sent him home b/c they are slow". I call BS! His work hasn't sent him home for being slow in the 90 days he has worked there but all of the sudden today they do?!?! I'm sure they did send him home but not because work is slow. I'm sure they were annoyed af with his dramatic display of sickness!
I know I don't sound sympathetic and it is because I am not! I feel like it is a big show so he can go home and sleep and not worry about having a short pay check again. I'm always the one that has to budget and make up for it b/c I handle the bills.
Honestly, this $hit is getting old and you add in the PITA SD, the gross MIL and the stress of steplife it simply isn't worth it. I've been considering divorce for a while now. I keep holding out thinking things might change but it is becoming very evident that he has no desire to change. Again, I know I probably sound heartless but there is a pattern here with his "sickness". It is such a turn off to watch a man act like he is dying over a damn tummy ache.
Okay, had to vent before I snapped!
