Jerk DH..need to VENT

Hello ladies, I just needed to vent today about how rude and inconsiderate my DH is being today. We have a 2.5 yr old DS who goes to daycare. The daycare is closed for these three days to prepare as the children move into new classrooms. My DH and I both work full-time for the same department but in separate divisions. He has known that he needed to take the time off to watch our DS today for a few weeks (I spent the last two days off with him). I had originally asked him to take two days off so I could save my time for maternity leave when the new baby comes. My DR had already said I will be off a month before the birth if all goes well. I was off on six weeks of bedrest before my due date last time.


My DH is working overtime tonight and should start at about 5 PM. I get off work at 5 PM. He has known this for at least a week and should have been prepared but no! He came by my work this morning and had me come out and say hello to my DS, who "was crying all morning for mommy." I knew it would only make matters worse and it did. After ten minutes I went back to my office and I could hear my DS screaming in the car. I, of course, felt guilty and went back to my desk and cried. I have received no less than six phone calls for "where is this and that",

I called my husband later this afternoon, crying, saying I needed him to come home... I was at my wits end with my 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 yr old (mostly my 2 1/2 yr old).

Yep, men are insensitive idiots sometimes, luckily not all the time or the human race would die out (or we'd kill most of them and just save a few for babymaking).

Ladies, thank you all so much. Things have relaxed a bit. I was really angry for hours and everyone in my office, who all know my DH, supported me too. It was clear when I came home that he realized he was being unfair and although he didn't apologize it was obvious he felt bad. He was out the door fast that night for his OT and all was blown over the next day. Again thank you all. I know I will face these trying times again but it is nice to know there is someone I can vent to who knows what I am talking about. It helps take some of the edge off.
