Uh... I'm keeping my promise DH!

WAY back when my almost 17 yo ds was only around 5, about 2 yrs before I met my DH, my ds asked me when he could ever have a ride in a limousine. I told him when he graduated high school. I promised him. And he still remembers! Growing up, he'd ask me every now and then if he will still get a limo ride when he graduates. I say yes, of course!

Ds is graduating this year. I mentioned to DH that I will be booking him a limo. DH got his back up. He says "if we get a limo for him, then we have to get one for all of the kids. That's going to get expensive" I blew that one off. We aren't struggling financially and limos aren't that expensive. Then, he says "Don't you think it will look odd if ds shows up alone in a limo to prom?" (Ds doesn't have a gf). Um, nope! Plus he will probably use it to pick up friends. DH says "So, we are paying for a limo to take a bunch of his friends to prom too?!" I replied "Damn right! It's his limo ride that he's been waiting for since he was 5 fucking years old. That promise is older than our relationship and I will be damned if you expect me to break it." He dropped it after that.

Why the fuck does he have a problem with this?! What's the big deal?! I don't get it.

The big deal is that it's weird.

You made him understand. It's over now. Move on.

It's not weird at prom. It's weird at graduation. Your post says nothing about prom.

I'm in Canada. No one calls it prom. It's called grad.

Yeah. I'd do the limo at prom. Graduation is for families. They also have to show up way early and hang around before hand.

Why does he jump straight to having to do it for all the kids? Is he one of those annoying tit-for-tat Even Stevens?

Yes. Mostly. Annoys the shit out of me. But I seriously have zero issues with paying for limos for all kids who graduate with decent grades.

I hate that....if one does it they all need to...thinking.

Go and do it. You promised and you can afford it. 10 years from now your husband won't even care but your son will remember.
