On the Hubby's Shit list.....

I don't know how I did it. Was it the stress of the holiday? Was it the stress of a sick asthmatic kid all week? I don't know, but I have done it. He is mad.

It all started with the handsome UPS man coming to my door. He comes at least twice a week. He is a tall handsome gray haired man. OK...this isn't about the UPS man......

This time it was just a small envelope he left, not a package. Yes, it was addressed to my husband, but hey...."what's mine is mine and what's his is mine!" Right?

I opened it. It looked like a credit card advertisement. The kind you get in the mail all the time. The kind you just toss. Well, I thought it was odd that it came UPS. BUT, Verizon sends us stuff all the time via UPS trying to get our business back. (it isn't working, you can stop now!) I tossed it in the trash. No, I ripped the plastic card off, tossed it in trash and tossed the paper in recycle, like a good girl.

I never thought anymore about. UNTIL.......last night.

You see, Chris was all ready in a bad mood. He was doing bills. When he does these, I usually-
A: Pretend I am tired and go to bed. Even if it is 8:00.
B: Kiss his ass and give him anything he wants (yes anything!)
C: Disappear and pretend I have errands to run

This time I did option "C". But for some reason, he dragged bill paying on ALL DAY! He came down the stairs and said "Where is that UPS envelope that was sitting on the radio?"

OH SHIT........I tossed it.

Oh boy was he mad. We were just sitting down to dinner. We had Sami's new boyfriend over for the first time. Not a good first impression. He started tearing through the recycle. Then gave up. We ate, he was pleasant. I went and tore through the recycle in hopes of finding it. In hopes I wasn't the good "recycling girl" and tossed it in all together.

No such luck......I found the UPS envelope and the torn up up info.....no card.........

okay, first off I'm bias because I like you, therefore I'll always take your side. BUT that said.. why is it that we take options a-c when they get on the money bitch taboggin and kiss butt, yet when they leave the seat up, don't take the trash out, come home late destroying our otherwise Food network worthy dinner, do we just take it. Or sometimes we get mad but they rarely ever kiss ass unless it's a BIG deal? So my advice is this... kiss him on the cheek (not that one! unless you're game for that) say you are sorry for the MISTAKE.. then tell him to put on his big girl panties and DEAL WITH IT!!! good luck babe

Bills make my husband cranky too! So I have taken over the bill paying. He spends and spends and spends and I have to balance and balance and balance. He gets cranky when I tell him he has overspent until payday:)

I always open my husband's mail too! and I would have done the same thing as you! I hope you find the missing stuff.

(visiting from SITS, I am not one of those blog stalkers...But I check in on your blog once in awhile. I have kids about the same age, and some of the things you say remind me of myself)
