DH’s conversations can be so boring…skids, this, skids that….YAWN
Just for fun as it is a public holiday in the UK today
I used to think my SO was smart. Then there was the realisation of how his ‘parenting’ (I use that term very, very lightly) and his ostrich syndrome has created this mess…so then to me he wasn’t so smart. But since trying to disengage, maybe I’m wrong and he is smart after all….because no matter what the conversation, what we are doing he is very ‘creative’ at turning the conversation/activity to the skids (OSD 20 and a complete b*tch to me and YSD 17 and OK).
Although I have to say this is not just since my disengagement attempt. Here are just a few examples and would love to hear from those of you with ‘creative’ SO’s/DH’s stories.
EVERY vacation, “oh OST and YSD would love to come here, why don’t we see how much it will cost. We can come for 2 weeks, spend time here, they can bring friends, blah, blah, blah.” This after already making it crystal clear, I would NEVER go on vacation with OSD aka “The Drama Queen”. He’s quite welcome to take her, but I know that he probably couldn’t stand her for any period of time either….LOL!
I buy myself a brand of blusher/rouge…just have it on the counter…”Oh OSD doesn’t rate that brand anymore….blah, blah, blah.” Ummmm I didn’t even ask for yours/her opinions and more to the point…I don’t give a sh*t! She knows I like it which is more than likely the reason she doesn’t…LMAO.
I say, “I think I want to tone up a bit before vacation”…oh yes did you notice that OSD has put on a bit of weight. To myself “Nope…b/c (as above) I don’t give a sh*t”.
In a restaurant…actually having ordered….he says ..”OSD is probably stuck at home on her own right now…she would enjoy this place”…and proceeds to text her and invite her along…WTF…luckily she was out….pheewwww
On vacation where he had taken ODS, YSD and wife #2…when we were here…blah, blah, blah…or yes we came to this supermarket, I took skids to this restaurant…they slept in that room, blah, blah, blah. Me...yawn, yawn, yawn (once he even made me speak to YSD on his cell phone whilst on the beach enjoying a cocktail together...he tried 3 times but there was a bad signal...so I think I managed hello...LOL).
We order take out…”Oh I will just order OSD xyz in case she is hungry”….whatever.
I order a book for my Kindle…”Oh yes…OSD loves to read just like me”...like I'm bothered.
It drives me mad, seriously…get a life and stop living in the past!!!! I know we all like to reminisce but this is so sad it’s funny!!!
