1 Bump

Annoyed. Friday night and he's not coming home right away.

He says he's going to stay at work to play Call of Duty with some guys. Ok, well what about wife and kids at home you arsehole. Gosh I hate him sometimes.
Does your man come straight home? Of course they do! They are all perfect.

  • My husband doesn't spend every Friday night with me, but I'm ok with that. If your husband goes out ALL the time, then yeah, I'd be pretty annoyed lol. But if he only goes out every once in awhile...he needs guy time too, you know?

  • i have to ask, is this a regular thing? if not i wouldn't let it bother me. everyone needs to have a life outside of their family every now and then. perhaps tomorrow you should kindly stick him with the kids and go meet up with your friends for a couple of hours.

  • Nope, sometimes mine comes home two hours after he "should". As long as he calls and let's me know I am fine with it. Now if this was an everyday occurrence I might start to get pissy but once a week maybe twice is fine.

  • Man-child...yes, I suppose that is accurate. I would prefer a man-man who put priority to family over video games. *sigh*

  • I wouldn't begrudge my man time to go be a guy, unless he was shirking his duties at home. Then the problem isn't that he's hanging out with his friends, it's that you feel he doesn't do his share at home.

  • Regular thing? No...I can't say that. Maybe an extra 15 minutes here and there to work on something within the game. I guess Friday night just feels like a night when he should be home.

  • Friday nights are just like any other night, except it leads to the weekend and who doesn't like a weekend? Since you say it isn't his norm then I would not be upset at all.

  • I always say "sure, have fun baby. Next Fri me and the girls are going to hang out for a while" so if his plan is to go out and drink with the guys he changes his mind real quick lol
