We have neighbors our age with kids the same age as ours. We all tried being friends when we first moved in but found that we are not compatible. As time went on, we try to be civil but it is clear that the husband hates my guts. He has always been nice to my husband, but outright rude to me. He has even talked about me sarcastically to his wife while I was standing right next to him. "I don't like fake people, honey. Do YOU like fake people?" He said this randomly while I was standing there having a conversation with her. The other day I dropped a Congrats card off because they just had a new baby and the guy rolled his eyes, and when I said congratualtions, he looked me in the eye and walked away...then asked my daughter for a hug. I was so stunned that I froze and my eyes immediately began to water. It's one thing when another woman is that rude, but from a guy---especially the eye rolling---it was very intimidating. I was in tears by the time we got home. I told my husband about the experience (again fighting tears) and he agreed we should just NOT have contact with these people anymore.
So today my husband was mowing the lawn and the guy drives by and pulls over to chat. My husband stood there for a couple minutes small talking with him. When he came inside he casually told me that he chatted with him and told him congratualtions, blah blah, blah.
I was SO MAD! And hurt. I wanted my husband to be mad and hurt for me and at least give this guy the cold shoulder to let him know "my wife told me what you did and I don't approve". But he didn;t. My husband is a nice guy, yes, and says he doesn't want to be rude. I get that. But the other guy was rude to me!
We just fought about this for so long that I am too exhausted to talk about it anymore. Am I being unreasonable to be hurt that my husband wasn't more annoyed at the guy for me?
I have to see this couple a lot more than my husband does and I just know they will gang up on me again.
