Xbox Rant (Naughty words)

I hate xbox!!!

First of all, it's bad enough that my DF works 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. But really? is xbox the way to spend your remaining time?

He gets up at 11am. Plays CoD for 3 hours and leaves for work. Then he gets home and plays for another 3 hours and goes to bed.

The house... It's been getting remodeled for 18 months now. But he bitches that he doesn't have time... Well I can see 6 hours a day that could be used to work on things.

Sex... Doesn't happen anymore. Once a week for the last year... He is just too tired. I probably would be too if I were spending so much time bitching at the tv and talking to my teammates.

He constantly complains he doesn't get enough sleep. He doesn't do any kind of housework. I do it all... But if something isn't up to his standards, he sure lets me know. He sits on xbox and gives me orders... Cook me dinner, get me a drink, pick that up, blah blah blah.

I would love to shove that controller up his ass... Then maybe we could have sex, a remodeled house, and a little quality time.

I know I should be more understanding because he works 70 hours a week. A lot of men don't have a job and spend 70 hours on the box... But I miss him. And it annoys me.

  • I'd seriously give the guy an ultimatum, "the xbox or me". Then let him make the decision and stand by his decision!

  • Damn. My husband loves his PS3 but he makes time for us too, it's just a hobby he's not addicted like your hubby is. Talk to him(calmly) and tell him how you feel. Maybe he could have an Xbox schedule or something.

  • And you have talked to him, correct? Ever thought about hiding controllers/games/electrical cords?

  • I think I would try to talk calmly to him about it when he is not playing. I would seriously have to think this through before making it legal.

  • I love our Xbox. About your SO maybe you should have a long talk with him! Or unplug the Xbox and hide it for awhile.

  • Try talking to him.. when he isnt playing.

    My DD's dad was a terrible gamer and it really ruined our relationship.. thankfully DH doesnt play any games, other than on his phone occasionally, lol.

  • I've talked to him. He doesn't see an issue because his friends play wayyy more than he does. So in his mind, he isn't that bad.

    I have been thinking about hiding the controllers. Just now he got home and the first thing he did was turn on the xbox. A few minutes later I was acting pissy and he asked if something was wrong and as soon as I started talking, he interrupted me and said "with the xbox, it's not turning on." GRRRRRR

  • The thing is, I don't know if it's a phase or if it's going to be permanent. It just started about 6 months ago. Prior to that, he hated video games.
