I am rarely (as in never lol) left speechless - until today.
We have a brand new puppy who we have had for 1 week, she is 10 weeks old and is a true runt. She requires middle of the night feedings. Hub agreed from day 1 he would do them, as I get to bed about 2 AM and he gets home about 5 to 6 AM (that is his feed) and then I am back up at 10 AM.
Today I get up to a note from him that she seemed sleepy so he skipped the feed and her time out of crate (he always lets her have some play time so she will use bathroom).
I had a horrible time sleeping last night & did not get to sleep til 4AM (which he knew about) so I did not get up til noon thinking she was fed, bathroomed & fine.
Her crate was full of pooh & pee and she was starving!
I was PO to say the least!
At first I tried to calmly get him to see that she does not know what is best for her and that is why we humans are in charge.
He blew a HUGE HUGE fit! Said he was leaving me forever and on and on he went.
Finally he takes other dog outside potty and comes back in. I said to him (just to try to calm things the heck down!)"OK, I will do the night feeds from now on. He responds with "I am so sick & tired of being responsible for you so I am leaving". I respond with "if your tired of being responsible for me what does leaving do, you'll leave me with the bills, the business and I listed a few other things".
My thoughts about his statement were that he was tired of doing things like this for me. Which are few & far inbetween any ways.
He says "no you don't get it. I am tired of taking care of YOU. It's not all about YOU, I am sick & tired of actually being responsible FOR YOU".
I stood there with my mouth hanging WIDE open. Speechless!!!!!
I do almost everything for him & around here! Not a day goes by I am not in major pain (spine injury from working so hard!)and I still keep going.
I am sure to some of you this is not a big deal, considering some of the other things he has said/done. But to me this is HUGE!
He is tired of being responsible for ME???
I don't know how things got turned around so quickly as usually I am really on my toes/guard and am ready for what he throws at me. But this time he got me "good". :(
