My husband works out of town sometimes. He didn't call me for two days so i got worried, was upset and left a message. He called said he was sorry just busy and didn't feel like talking. I waited yesterday for his call and it started to get late...I went out with the girls thinking he wouldn't call, missed his call and waited till morning to call him. He totally chewed me out and said he didn't like this game I was playing...ect ect. Why am I supposed to sit by the phone....he doesn't?

Sorry but that sounds very childish on his part. So hes busy and doesn't "feel like talking" to his wife? I'd be pretty pissed about that. So then how dare he yell at you for not being there when he "does feel like talking".

You know, when I've been busy sometimes I just don't want to talk to anyone.  It doesn't mean I'm being mean, I just want to be.  It wasn't right for him to expect you to wait by the phone, either.  I'm just wondering if his job isn't stressing him out.

I don't know enough to say what's going on with him. I understand being upset about not hearing from him. I would always make myself available for his calls though if it's a priority. Maybe he was upset because he doesn't know how to make you happy, and he is trying.

If his job was stressing him out I would think he would want to talk to his wife about it.  I would never let my husband go 2 days without calling me!  He had time just didnt use it.

  I agree with you.  He can find time to call!  It takes just a second.  Right now my DH is having to work out of town. He calls at least a dozen times a day. At least!  We don't stay on the phone but just long enough to say that we love each other, need and miss each other because they are just on break.  We do most of our talking at night.   If I were you it would bother me too!

Both responses sound childish.  He should have called before two days passed and you should have returned the call after being out with the girls.  Why not get cell phones and then you can talk whenever you want.

I understand what you're saying about not feeling like talking to people sometimes, and I do that too. However, this is her HUSBAND and he's on the road. It's not like he just came home from work and had a stressful day and went to unwind for a while, you know? I think that if he didn't "feel" like talking then he could have communicated that with her. For all she knew he was dead somewhere....I always worry and think of the worst things so this wouldn't be ok for me.
