He was supposed to take a week off his regular job, but things have been "too busy" there for him to do so.

SO, a WHILE ago, he agreed to quit the pt job come Sept. Today, he calls me to tell me his last day there is Sept. 27th. Really. Sept. 27th. You've given yourself one whole weekend off before the birth of OUR CHILD to get some stuff done -- of course that's IF I don't go BEFORE my due date.

I pride myself on being an independany, non-nagging wife...but ****'s gonna hit the fan when he gets home.

Is Hubby being a d-bag or are you getting a fit of raging hormones?

It's ok Jules, we all still think you kick ass.

Don't worry fellas, I'll take this one.

Well ......

We are truly lazy creatures, and in all honesty, girls often expect a lot more then is what we think is reasonable. (OK, girls always expect more then any rational man is willing to give)

Guys rely on logic. Girls use something called "emotions". They are illogical, unpredictable, and very often quite confusing to us. These emotions cause a lot of problems for guys. We don't understand them. We understand beer, sports and boning. Not in that order.

Guys often don't have the desire nor the energy to figure out if a girl is trying to drop "hints" or is just being weird. All subtlety aside, we would love it if a girl was more forward with her needs/desires/wants/dream/likes/dislikes without telling us stories we dont care about involving girls we dont care about unless they are hot. This is completely serious.

If your story involving a guy being a "moron" can't be told without you saying the words "feelings", then it is likely not the guy that is at fault, it is your expectations.

Some guys are morons, but it's the girls responsibility to realize this and avoid them. Guys don't "change" and they honestly have no desire to "change". "Change" is a word dumb girls use to feel good about a guy they realize is a moron, but they convince themselves that things will improve, when they often only go downhill over time.

Guys will lie and tell you what you want to hear just to get what they want. It happens all the time. If you think your guy doesnt do or like certain things (whacking off, strip joints, dirty mags, excessive drinking, ect) he has lied to you because you were up front with your dislikes and he told you what he wanted you to hear. And you believed him. And then he got laid, so the lie has been justified.

Any other questions?

Hahah...Snipe..you're funny. Sadly, being that I work with 45 men, I have come accustomed to not play the "hint" games or cloud things with "feelings". So, when I told him when I got pregnant that I wanted him to quit his part time job, I think I was pretty clear. When he said that he would make Aug. his last month, I thought HE was pretty clear.

But, based on his actions and what you're telling me, I guess I have to become the ***** and give him a chore list. YOU'D THINK THE FACT THAT WE CAN'T OPEN THE GARAGE DOOR BECAUSE THE SPRING SNAPPED 3 WEEKS AGO might motivate him to fix it without having it being put on a list. LOL

Sorry Jules. First time moms (especially young ones) tend to go early. I dont know how old you are, but I am willing to bet you'd go a few days early. Looks like you gotta have a "fun" talk with the hubby soon.

Go easy on the guy tho. 7 days a week? HOLY ****.

Chore list? ROFL.

Oh Jules, have fun with that conversation. If you really want to freak him out, send him a text message saying, "We need to talk." and then refuse to answer his messages.

It always drove me nuts. Like COMPLETELY nuts.

Good luck Jules!

Yeah, again...you think it was like I was nagging him to WORK. We don't need the money from his pt job. It's a hobby he enjoys.

And I'm not a "young" mom...(koff--35-koff), but regardless, you can go anytime from 37 to 42 weeks. I'll be at 37 weeks Sept. 16th. Guess what. He'll still be working.

Oh, he's WELL AWARE we need to talk. LOL. The conversation ended with me hanging up on him. I NEVER do that. He knows he's in deep ****.

Thanks.. I feel better..LOL. Off to MY job for a meeting.....

My mom was 35 when I was born. The due date for me was June 22nd.

I was born on May 22nd. Exactly 1 month early. I was my Mom's first of 2 children.

I won't get into the specifics, but I didn't go home for the first time until mid-June, and I was present at my Mom's babyshower, for me.

Jules, recommend you go in with the "I'd appreciate it" approach more than the "you're doing this now" approach. I'd be more likely to listen that way, and I'd assume the same with him. Only use the "you're doing it now" if they're not listening.

Plus that date may have some logic behind it that's out of his control(maybe give them time to find a replacement, train someone else, etc).

I got an idea Jules, I understand your just venting, but you probably dont want to take the advice of two 23 year olds. Especially JLHockey, hes been beating it to Peg from Married with Children since he was 12, whats he know?!

Snipe, this has been an entirely entertaining read!

Jules, I understand and (yeah, yeah, I know - we females tend to stick together) I agree with you on this one.

What guys tend to forget is that we can't do a lot of physical work with a belly out to who knows where. And it pisses us off that we have to rely on a man to do it, the same way girly-girls do.

My guess is that hubby didn't think that it was a big deal, because you still have a few weeks left. I don't know what it is with guys, but my husband is the same way. Why leave extra time just in case... in his mind, he'd still have everything done in lots of time anyway. What they don't get is that we have a need (especially when we're pregnant) to make sure everything is ready to go well in advance, just in case.

I gave every HF female all the secrets she needs to deal with dudes, it's truth, what can I say?

I would also like to add another popular guy motto.

"Why do today, what I can put off until hell freezes over?"
