the more he hates his job, the worse his mood, i cant take his mood swings!

so my SO is completely off his rocker lately. he doesnt know whether he hates his job or his life more. i feel like he looks at me as the reason behind him having to work a job he hates and comes home in the worst moods sometimes. some days he is good, then others he is ready to snap at me for saying the smallest things. i no longer know what to do and its really just starting to irritate me now, i really just want to tell him to suck it up or ship the hell out but i wont. he nevers wants to talk about what he wants in life, he just knows that he wants to be paid...hmm dont we all. he also wants a stress free job, dont we all too. but i am really just sick of his stank mood! do i just stay out of his way?

  • I'm sorry, I know how that is. My dh has been self-employed for three years, but it's not going well at all and he's going to have to find a full-time job. So between him being upset about his business going under, and having to get a job he will probably hate, he's been a real pain to live with lately. I've learned to stay out of dh's way and let him vent while I nod and pretend I'm not getting annoyed by his bitching. The roller coaster ride of his emotions is getting on my last nerve though. I just want to tell him to suck it up and move on!

  • I am sorry but good luck finding a stress free job! My husband LOVES his job. He is a nurse, but he still has a lot of stress no matter how much he loves it. He almost sounds in some sort of depressed mode. Maybe try getting him to see a doctor if you can, we all know how men and doctors are. Good luck.

  • Tell him he either needs to find a new job or he needs to find a new attitude.
    You can hate your job, but that doesn't mean you have to take it out on everyone around you.

  • My dh went through this not long ago. He doesn't like his job, they keep changing policies and he works with a bunch of men who whine all day because they've never had a really hard job. (I see his point lot). So I told him that although we agreed I'd stay home with the children I would get a job to help out with stuff so he could be happier. After that his attitude improved, I think sometimes men just need to know you appreciate how hard they work (like I do being a SAHM) and to know you have a sympathetic ear.
