We are going to visit a friend of my husband's that I really dislike this evening. I overheard my husband on the phone with him explaining to him that he won't be able to drink while he is there today because "the old lady doesn't want to have to drive home"
Now, the actual facts are that I have a migraine condition, and driving after dark is something I can do for short periods, but the headlights and streetlights will cause a migraine after a while if I do it too long, and this friend lives an hour away. My husband has no idea why I would be bothered by either being called his "old lady" (he only ever uses that term with this friend who is a complete chauvenist) or his saying I don't want to drive, instead of can't drive. Am I over reacting or is he out of line?
((The solution they reached was that we will all stay the night so my husband can drink and drive us home tomorrow. I have no issues with my husband drinking, I just don't like this man for many reasons, and I dislike how my husband behaves around him.))
