But it’s still heartbreaking every time it does.
Husband narrowly remembers anniversary, he bought me an edible bouquet.
THat he proceded to eat all by himself.
I managed to eat 2 strawberries, 1 banana bite and 1 pineapple mini-heart.
I put the rest in three HUGE tupperware bowls in the fridge.
I went in today to have some.
There are exactly 3 strawberries and 4 grapes left.
The three strawberries he left me were once that he passed over because there are bit bruised. So basically he left what he didn’t want to eat.
From *MY* anniversary gift.
I got him a bunch of Bill Mahr stand up DVDs and a Movies he’s wanted on Blu-Raya and I always send him an edible bouquet at work for our anniversary, valentine’s day and his birthday I’ve done that every year so, he ate all of his fruit at work, didn’t share it with anyone in the office.
Then came home an ate all of mine.
You know I expect him to be inconsiderate because well men generally are, I know I’m always going to be upset on my anniversary, birthday, Valentine’s days and Christmas.
I try to prepare myself for the disppointment, but it never works.
I got up expecting to have some nice fruit for breakfast and had 4 bruised strawberries and 4 grapes left out of THREE MASSIVE tupperwear tubs.
By the way the empty ones are in the sink for me to wash too.
He ate all of that after I went to bed. I hope he had the shits all day at work from all that fruit.
I’m just gonna tell him tonight when he gets home not to buy me anything at all anymore. No flowers (The cats eat them), No Edible Bouquets (Because John eats them), and nothing TANGIBLE because John can’t buy a gift to save his life. Even when I give him 4 pages of amazon wish list to pick from. He thinks that’s “Cheating” and he needs to pick out something. So the only time I get something I like.. it’s when John has left it until the DAY OF (*insert holiday here*) and then sends my mother to buy it for him (She looks at my wish list), but that’s missing the point entirely.
It’s just much less hurtful to have nothing at all than to be given something only to have it taken away.
If you have a CONSIDERATE MAN/PARTNER in your life, tell them you appreciate it, it’s a rare in my experience with men in general. I’ve never been with a considerate man, ever. John’s the king of them all.
