Teach an Mhadra lads. Im in it. In a biiig way. I’d a big night out last night. I was late home. Wasnt helped by the fact that i fell asleep on the bus home and woke up in clongriffin. Old habits. Wasnt helped by mrs j getting a fright and leaping out of the bed at 4am when i went upstairs, thus waking the entire house. And then she got up and got the kids to school today while i was asleep.
It’d all be grand really except im going on the lash again today with the brothers in law. At 2pm. And i cant pick up the kids from school. The daggers are being thrown non stop at me every time she’s seen me this morning.
Look. Wimmin are a cold, calculating and merciless bunch. She’s decided to send you out the door with a flea in your ear, as both punishment and as an exercise in the exertion of power and dominance. It’s up to you whether or not you dislodge the flea and go ahead and enjoy a pleasant relaxed evening of banter and friendship, an evening which she would happily impinge upon. Would you do this to her, or would you think of some random act of consideration with which you could enhance her evening…a complimentary bottle of champagne at the restaurant, or an insistence that she lie in the following morning?
Basically you’re trapped in an abusive relationship. You’ve two options open to you; either set yourself free by not giving a damn, or succumb and accept the very defeat of your very self…
But whatever you do make sure and explain what @glenshane has said about the situation.
The poor woman running a house, working a full time job and she has to mind this fella on top of the kids.
He’d do well to make a grand gesture if he does tip off with the boys. At the very least he should have her tea made for her or an order placed with her favourite takeout so she can put her feet up this evening.
