List of complaints

Steve got up at 9 this morning and this is the list of complaints he'd made by 10 o'clock.

It's raining.
The boats listing.
I don't mix the dogs food enough.
Why had I loaned DD2 my car on a day he's going out, (because she asked a month ago and he arranged his lunch meeting yesterday).
I'm wearing the wrong shoes.
I didn't fill the porridge pan with water after I'd used it. (Yesterday he complained because I had filled it with water.)
The stew I was cooking was being boiled to death. (It was just coming to the boil)
He likes stew but why do I have to add so much crap to it. (Crap like onions, herbs, carrots and seasoning)
His lunch out has been cancelled as someone is unwell.
The kindling I've collected over the summer is useless, it burns like wood and not kindling.
How's he supposed to walk the dog in the rain. He doesn't walk him, I do and anyway Beano hates the rain.

I hope you get an opportunity to go and scream somewhere.

But you love him so what the heck, we can all sound off sometimes!

We all need to be able to sound off somewhere, usually just before we commit murder . . .

Well, my guess is that all these rants stem from the fact that his lunch was cancelled and he must have been looking forward to it!
I hope your day gets better.

My sympathies Hesta, it gets a bit wearing, a bit like the annoying adverts on Classic FM, I turn them down or hum over them.
It is bad enough being given the role of manager of the household instead of both taking equal responsibility for chores, without having a full time critic doing B***** all.

Can you respond with enthusiasm to positive comments and ignore the negative ones- a bit like training the dog.
Perhaps you could say, “I wasn’t listening,” rather than having to answer every moan.
DH is always saying why haven’t I done this or that, and now instead of explaining that I was busy doing something else, I just reply, “Why didn’t you?”

You are on a boat, on water, how about getting a plank from B&Q?

It's a good job you don't keep a loaded shotgun to hand ;-)

Oh Hester, My Mum - who has no condition, apart from being old is like this. If we spend time with her we usually try and take her out somewhere so we are not confined, but she absolutely drains me and takes all the joy out of everything. Then she has the cheek to say I am miserable, or snappy. I don't know how you cope with someone 24/7, I really don't think I could... It must be love!

Civilisation at last

We are finally moored somewhere with a good Wi-Fi signal. So what's been happening since I last posted. We are no longer travelling with...
