How ridiculous is this...

Me & My husband got into an argument over a shipping box this morning. Tell this isn't ridiculous? Yesterday we had a big box delivered to our apartment with computer parts, because my husband works on computers for a living. My daughter had been playing on the box all night last night, this morning I got up and my husband had put the box on the porch after he had got all of the parts out. Well... I thought he didn't need it and I let our daughter play in it.... I didn't know he needed the box to send the old computer parts back in, so he called and cussed me out over a BOX. Yes, I understand it was important for his job but we could go to wal-mart, ingles, kmart, plenty of places to find another f-ning box for him to ship his computer parts back in. I'm NOT going to be cussed out over a box. I'm so mad right now....

  • Bravo to you!!!! a simple 'i'm going to put this box out on the porch, don't throw it because i'll need it' is all that it would have taken.

  • if he did not mention to save box
    it is a box and kids are around, what did he think would happen...answer..he did not think, guess he expected you to read his mind
    the box was fair game when emptied and put on the porch

  • Yup I would be upset too. It is just a box, I can get another one....... LoL sometimes people are just in a bad mood I think, and may be a bit irrational.

  • Well, its a giant box and I thought it would be fun for our daughter to play in and color on for the day because she played on it so much yesterday. But, NOOOOOO I get cussed out for allowing her to play in it and the box get ripped.

  • If it was that important that he cussed you out, it should have been important enough for him to mention it was

  • That seems pretty over the top - you didn't know he needed the box. What a jerk.

    My ex threatened to leave me when I was pregnant with our youngest because I spent $8 on a maternity shirt. We had the money, he hated me spending anything on myself. I left him when she was 2.

  • He had better change his attitude because I'm not going to be listening to GD this and GD that over a BOX, I hung up on him because I don't deserve to be cussed over it. It's NOT as if he can't order another box from Fedex and get them to bring it, because I just called myself and spoke to them about it.

  • Scuba - Yeah, he is a jerk for acting this way! That's ridiculous over $8, just like its ridiculous over a freaking packaging box. He over-reacts to everything and its annoying and I've just about had all I can take of it.
