Last night, my wife got some bad news that one of her friends was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
There was a lot of consoling and comforting her and she went to bed fine. This morning, she was non-stop bitching at the kids and me. No problem. I didn’t let it affect me, STFU and ignored her before leaving for work and ignored her messages all day.
After getting home from work, the bitching continued until another friend came over and the wife acts like nothing’s wrong. Again...STFU and go outside to cut grass. Coming in from mowing and the friend is leaving. When she does, my wife asks why I’m all pissed off? I told her that I didn’t like her attitude and that I didn’t want to be around it. Her reply was, “if you don’t want to take it, go find other options!” I laughed it off and sarcastically agreed. There were a few other comments like how i looked like an asshole in front of her friend, etc.
My question is how not to look butt hurt when ignoring her shitty behaviour? I kept playing with the kids for the rest of the evening, just ignoring her and shutting up.
Thanks in advance.
