Back to Jeanette we go...

Because DH is sliding back into his excuse making crap behavior.  

Long story short, I inadvertently busted BabyVoice, who told DH she had done something she hadn't done.  I had no intention of busting her, I didn't know she lied to him, don't much care if she does since I am disengaged, but a comment I made in passing led to the discovery that she, in fact, had lied to him.

So, what did my DH do, you ask?  Blame ME.  Yup - blamed me.  Uh, no, buddy.  I told you that the washer and dryer were now free for BabyVoice to use.  That's it.  Nothing more.  It's not my fault that she told you she had done her laundry during a time in which there was no way that she could have because I was doing sheet and towels on a cycle that takes almost two hours.  

So, a YUGE argument ensued during which DH made every excuse in the book for BabyVoice, including these gems -

  • it was a misunderstanding (what?  a laundry misunderstanding?  WTF is that?)
  • she must have used the 10 minute cycle (we don't have one of those)
  • "you're just out to get her"  (yeah, because I have nothing better to do)
  • "you always lie when it comes to her" (yep, you caught me, buddy)

So, I texted Jeanette to schedule an appointment.  I checked our shared Google calendar, saw no conflicts and made the appointment for next Tuesday.

I told DH about the appointment and he told me that BabyVoice has a flute lesson at that time.  I told him I didn't see it on the calendar and was told that I "should have known."

Oh boy - here we go again.

If Jeanette is NOT able to knock some sense into DumbHusband, I am more than willing to give him a double Flying Five Fist Monkey Nut Punch!!! Diablo

So is he saying he can't go to therapy because of the flute lesson? Are you freaking kidding me?

My guess is that he will have KarateKid drive her to her lesson next week. 

He didn't weigh in one way or the other re his attendance.  Only that I "should have known" that the flute lesson that was not on the calendar was taking place. 

Ok dude

Tell him to get his head out of his ass.

You're out to get her over LAUNDRY? I would think you could come up with a better way to get her than that.

God forbid you have any control over laundry and cleanliness in your home. 

When you find out how to do laundry that quickly, please let us know! We can all benefit.  

My DH and I have had several arguments over him believing whatever OSD43 - someone he agrees is manipulative and has to have her way - says before talking to me.

I don't know about your washer, but most washers have ungodly long cycles now due to water conservation requirements (which conversely runs up the electric bill).   I have an "Allergan" cycle that I'm not sure what happens other than possible pet hair-melting temperatures.

WalkOnBy's picture

Yep - and I was using the "allergiene" cycle when she claimed she was doing laundry.

Don't get me wrong, I couldn't give a flying f*ck if or when she does laundry, but I will be damned if I am going to get blamed for her lie.

To me, it all boils down to "WOB is lying". No. WOB's DH has his head so far up his arse that he's looking through parted lips to drive.

WTF...REALLY's picture

And WHY should you of known?

He really is just being an A$$ lately. What the heck is his problem?

I don't even know what to say here, other than {{big hugs to you}}


Your DH is being a complete jerk. You're not a mind reader, and he is projecting his daughter's dishonesty onto you.

Sounds like he is manstrating.  Why lie about laundry,  geeze  and why would you. 

Doesn't he worry about how they are going yo function in the real world? I love my kid very much, but always in my mind is what is he going to need to be a great person and be successful. 

At 10 I do not have him do his own laundry because I just throw in every ones by color. But I have shown him how it works so he could do it if he needed to. This year has been a year of responsibility and he has exceeded my expectations. 

I hope your husband gets it together and focuses on.the real issue.

Right?  What could I possibly have to gain?  

He says  he worries about how they will function, but he does nothing to encourage responsibility or accountability.

Remember, this is the girl who takes 45 minute showers and when I told DH to tell her to take much shorter showers, he told me that they were "working on it."

Working on it?  WTF does that even mean???  He said he is helping her try to find ways to cut corners in the shower. WHAT???  

She is going to be 16 in a few short months.  If she can't figure out how to take a 15 minute shower as opposed to a 45 minute one, then she has no business being behind the wheel of a car.

Sorry, but I'm calling BS. SD24 has hair down to her arse and she's half-Yeti (BioHo is full Yeti). She takes 15-20 minute showers.

WalkOnBy's picture

Oh, it's total BS.  According to BabyVoice, she doesn't wash her hair every day and she shaves every other day.  When DH presented me with this "evidence" I said something like 'oh, so she's NOT doing both of those things every day?  God help us when she does, she'll be in there for an hour and a half!"

I would also like to know how this 10 minute cycle works?  That would save me so much time.  Wow, BabyVoice made a grand discovery that can help everyone get their laundry done so much faster.  She sounds amazing! I can't see why you would be picking on her like that! LOL!
