would you be mad

so i had these decorative plates that belonged to my father that i wanted to hang in the kitchen. i asked my dh on friday to put nails in where i wanted to hang the plates. (yes i could do it but i am short and this was high up) i asked him again saturday and again sunday. still no nails. so this morning i tried to do it myself and of course both slipped off the nails and smashed on the floor. (i used the only ones i could find and yes apparently wrong ones) but i asked him three days in a row. how long does it take to pound nails in a wall? would you be mad? i am sitting here balling i dont know if its cause i am sooo mad at him for never doing what i ask or because my fathers plates are gone and that is all i had of his. what do you think? should i be hating my husband right now ? cause i am.

  • I will help you beat the living Sh*T out of him,I am short too,and my husband does the same thing,it is always ,when I work out on break,one time I kept asking him to get something out of a high cabinet,he kept putting it off,so I climbed up there,and fell and about broke my neck.I'm sorry for you losing your plates,I would be upset about both.and I am sorry.Maybe someday you can find ones like them,I know it wont be the same,just a suggestion,

  • I would be mad too but be mad that he did not do what you asked not that the plates are broken. Men don't understand when it comes to sentimental memories, and you just lost your dad so try not to be too hard on hubby. He may be lazy but he did not intentionally try and hurt you.

  • No, I wouldn't hate him, but I would be very angry and really more hurt than anything. You didn't have to try and do it yourself. I can't say I blame you because I usually end up doing things myself too, but theres a reason you asked him. Because you couldn't do it. I think that you both should take blame for the situation. I would also make a plan for future to do lists and let him know that if you ask him to do something...theres a reason and he needs to respect that. If he says he will do it then he needs to do it. This is a problem in our home too.

  • what your not getting momofsaee is that i always ask him to do certain shit and he never never does but let one of his friends or family call and need something he is right freakin there. no i didnt have to do it myself but if i wanted it done that is how it was going to be. so basically i guess this is all my fault i should have just forgot about wanting it done and moved on huh?

  • Sorry that you lost a remembrance of your dad. But remember the good times with pops.All hubbys are like that one time or another.Just think positive. Don't worry about the drama mamas on here. CM is just a diversion, an outlet from the real world.
