What was this all about???

Today while me and my dh were doing our daily walk I decided to bring a plastic bag with me bc there was litter here and there I picked it up feeling good while doing it thinking what a good thing to do well my dh got all upset with me and said WHY am I doing this I said bc I want to besides we walk here daily it's the least I can do he walks off upset and made a stupid comment like...Why don't you worry about keeping the house clean. I let him walk further up front. Until I felt like catching up to him. What was the big deal??? I don't get it.
AND I do keep my home clean it just doesn't stay clean:( VENTING Thanks!

  • AW...I'm sorry! I think it's great that you were picking up...I do that every time I take my child to our local park. Perhaps something else is bothering him....& this was his only way to express that something is wrong or up.

  • Sometimes men are just insensitive. Leaving him alone with them for a few hours may open his eyes a little :)

  • that's pretty cool of you really. i would not want to look at all that trash on a daily basis either.

  • I'd have caught up behind him and smacked him up side the head!

  • My husband and I think you did a great thing. Men are hard to understand. remember sometimes our clean is not the same as the next person.
