Question for the audience. Anyone notice a damned if I do, damned if I don’t attitude from the wife as you’re making this journey?
For context, I left for a trip this morning and before I left I checked the truck (her vehicle) to make sure it would start. I’d done some maintenance on it on Friday and the battery had been acting up. It didn’t start (this was at 6 am as I’m out the door) so I threw the charger on it. When I got to my destination I called a neighbor I trust and asked him to pick up a new battery and install for me since I was away. He was happy to help and we had a new battery installed before noon. When I called the wife to tell her he was coming over she threw a fit, said I should have asked her to do it, and complained that she was still in her pajamas. I told her she’d have to change, that this was happening. She continued to rage and, for the first time I can remember, I started laughing. Not at her per se, though I’m sure she thought I was, but rather at her stupid complaints and the fact that 6 months ago I WOULD HAVE asked her and I know she’d have thrown a fit about that. How can you ask me to do that, you caused this you figure out how to fix it, you left me with a bad vehicle etc. She hung up on me, which made me laugh more. When I called later, after a hellish flight, she was snippy with one word answers so I just asked to talk to the kiddo and we had a pleasant conversation.
Is this attitude of you’re always wrong common? I’m assuming the answer will be AWALT but I’m curious. I’ve always complained that she engages in moving goalposts but this was something else. I’m still laughing about it.
Thx in advance.
