I'm in a pissy mood.
I've been home sick, and I'm getting sick of bf. I know it's a temporary feeling. It will go away. But I really can't stand him at the moment. So I'm going to bitch and whine here because it will make me feel better. Don't read further it will probably just annoy you.
We were supposed to go to an electronics fair together, but since I was sick I didn't go. He came back with: an alarm clock, and christmas lights.
Later that day he went to a grocery store and bought me a pair of dark blue gloves that he paid a Euro for.
I made fun of him for the alarm clock, because it was a cheap "made in china" alarm clock, that promised stuff on the box that it didn't do in real life. And to boot it was a talking alarm clock, to turn the light on you had to listen to it... super useful at night when you're trying to sleep, or when your partner is trying to sleep... hint hint at the irony here.
The Christmas lights stopped working after a bit for some reason the button to change the flashing is sporadic.
And the gloves were dark blue, a colour which I hate and I had told him not to buy me gloves because I would buy them myself.
Right... I'm an ungrateful bitch (no he didn't say that). I should have said... oooh thank you, you're so sweet for buying me such lovely gifts.
I shouldn't have told him that they ripped him off for the clock that had false advertisement on the box. I shouldn't have told him that the christmas lights weren't working, or that the gloves were something I wanted to buy on my own.
What was the response? I asked him if he liked the christmas tree that I decorated. He said that he didn't like it. When I asked him why he said that he didn't have to give a reason. And that he had told me that he wanted to do it himself, which was a reference to the gloves if you hadn't noticed... I hadn't and I actually thought he wanted to decorate the tree himself. I had a sinking feeling that he was being facetious but I took the decorations off the tree anyhow (it's a pretty small tree luckily).
The next morning he said, "oh... you took the decorations off?"
And I mentioned what he had said the day before. And he admitted to "joking".
We had an argument and now we're at a standstill.
So here's my reasoning:
EVERY FUCKING PRESENT I've ever bought the man has been totally unappreciated. He has NEVER EVER said thanks I really like it, even out of politeness. He puts the gift down, he tells you exactly what he hates about it, he sits it in the closet or drawer, then after YEARS he finally pulls it out and starts using it. He actually uses them to death... but noooo not right away.... after YEARS. He doesn't just do it with me. He does it with everyone. So I know it's not directed at me. But Christmas and his birthday become painful for me. I never have any idea what the hell to get him because I know he'll just hate it.
So in one day. I dissed 3 things he brought me.... is that REALLY that wrong?? I was telling the truth. He bought three cheap products... and that's another thing. He would rather spend a Euro and buy something that doesn't work over spending 5 to get something that actually works.
He would rather cut and burn something (specifically a curtain) and have it look bad than spend the money on something that is already finished. ARGGGGGGGG
Ok... I think I'm done... sorry, that was random.. props for whoever actually read all of this without laughing or shaking their head in the shame of my ramblings.
