When my and DH's paycheck did not clear in time for my hair appointment today I canceled and made plans to go tomorrow and kept it moving. DH, like the idiot in shining armor he sometimes is, went and asked his father for the money WITHOUT ASKING ME. I have no idea what posessed him to do something so redonkulous, but it is very embaressing to have him take out a loan for me to get my hair done. It just looks bad and i'm pretty sure that his dad has always thought of me as some sort of spendthrift because I enjoy shopping and going out with friends (as opposed to staying in the home and having a ton of babies).

Does anyone here think I'm over reacting if I give that money back?

Quoting ayacocca: I am a Very private person, esp regarding financial affairs, so yes I wouldve been pissed too. fide he know that you had rescheduled?

No he didn't know. DH said he was trying to prevent me from having to, he knows my hairdresser will refuse to see me for weeks if I cancel too often. I have to say he was really trying to help but I just don't get where his mind was at on this one. I am an extremely private person when it comes to my finances too.

That would bother me too. I would tell DH, thanks but no thanks. I might even take the money back to FIL and explain the misunderstanding.

It bothers me when women bad mouth/name call their SO to strangers but I digress. Personally I think that's an overreaction. Just ask him not to do it again.

I think you are overreacting. He was just trying to do something nice for you. My DH would have done the same thing.
