Me, the husband, my Wii U and Mass Effect 3 on his ps3...
So me and my husband rarely ever fight and when we do it doesnt last super long (thank goodness too). Friday night my husband surprised me with my Wii U and the new Lego Marvel Heros game. OK cool, right? Well Saturday evening as we were driving home my husband told me that he wanted me to play my new game on my wii u. OK, cool again, right? So we get home and I go to get our infant daughter situated in her swing, make her a bottle, get in my comfy clothes and then settle on the couch. Now my husband immediately got on his ps3 to start playing Mass Effect 3. Now I usually have no problems with him playing on his video games. He is an excellent father, husband and a very hard worker so I dont mind him playing since that's his way of relaxing and he is usually very agreeable. Well I dont know what bug he had up his butt last night but I just politely informed him that I needed the tv at first to set up my Lego video game before I can get it switched to the tablet that comes with the Wii U. Ok...I get he was playing online on his game but in my defense he does play his video games everyday and a lot. (lol) He gets on first thing when he gets up and when he first gets home from work. He will play on it pretty much the whole weekend if we're home and not out doing anything. Again, pointing out again that I have no problems with him playing because he will pause to change a diaper or to feed our daughter and he will also play with her in his lap. So anyway he switched the channel on the tv so I could set up my game. Now I am that person that likes to watch the intro of my lego games because they're funny and cute. (I'm weird I know) Well he got mad because he wanted me to skip the intro so he could get back to his game. I told him that I wanted to watch the intro to my game and it would only be for a couple minutes and then it'll be set to my wii u tablet. Anyway he gets mad, I get my feelings hurt because at that precise moment I felt like he was being a little selfish, so I switched off my wii u, he got mad, then he threw his ear piece on the floor and he even shut off his ps3 in anger. (we can be so dramatic sometimes lol) I went to our room to get away from him, he followed me, we yelled and I did make up shortly after we had our yelling match but I just dont get men.
He wanted me to play my new game but because he doesnt watch the intros to his games it's like I should be more like him and I can only be me. I even told him after we made up that I dont mind him playing and that the only point I was trying to make is that he is always playing on his ps3 and I just wanted a few minutes to do something on my wii u. And no he didnt apologize for being an a-hole and I didnt apologize either. I did apologize for making him feel that I have issues with him playing video games all the time but I didnt apologize for wanting a few minutes to do something on my Wii U.
This isn't a venting post or needing advice. I just wanted to get this off my chest. And I dont need anyone to bash me or my husband. I love my husband, he's a very great guy and so he has his flaws. (lol) He's human and I have my human moments, too. This is just "I dont get men sometimes" post, I guess. (lol)
