I got home a few minutes before my SO. I started cleaning my ss bearded dragon cage. As I am outside shaking off poop, they pull up in the driveway. I get the horn beeped at me to help with groceries, then ss come in the house behind me. After placing stuff in kitchen I turn to walk back out for more when I see ss left door wide open. As I am passing him, I remind him not to leave the door wide open. SO walks in soon after, I get the rest and bring them in the house. I resume cleaning cage and SO walks into ss room where I am and says 'don't fuss at him, he thought he was helping'. Now I understand he thought he was helping, but keeping the door cracked is just as effective. But I h when the first thing out of my wifes mouth is to reprimand me for 'fussing' at him. I get so angry. I can't stand being treated like I did something wrong for wanting the door shut. I retreatI got home a few minutes before my SO. I started cleaning my ss bearded dragon cage.

Are you a man?  I notice you said "the first thing out of my wife's mouth."

ETA: nevermind, read your other post. got it.

Sounds like normal marital bliss. I would suggest speaking about your feelings later on with SO.

 I leave the door open when unloading groceries, even this time of year.

So are you more upset b/c SS left the door open, b/c DH first words were negative to you rather than hi honey how was your day?

How old is SS, is he capable of cleaning out his bearded dragon's cage himself? I love bearded dragons!

Thanks for the reality check. I was more upset that the first thing out of my SO's mouth was negative, rather than the door being left open. I know I need to relax about the little things. I find it hard when I know there are bigger issues.

SS is only 7, so until he is a little older, taking care of the dragon falls to me.

Did you buy the dragon?

No, taking care of the dragon falls to daddy...if you can't correct SS, you shouldn't be doing for him either, that's double standard crap!
