Last night, DH sends my DSS to the store before dinner was finished cooking, with $5.00 to pick-up a 2 liter of coke so we could have something to drink with our dinner (I forgot to pick drinks up while I was at the store). Anyway's - DSS gets back and DH calls me to come get my dinner. I walk into the kitchen and I see 2 - 2 liters of cheap nasty off brand convience store soda. I look at him and say "I thought your dad gave you $5.00, so why did you get this and not coke like I asked for" and DSS says "he did give me 5 bucks but this (as he's pouring a glass of this blue crap) was cheap so why not get it and besides it's good" and I replied "because I asked for coke, not that crap" and my DH chimes in "it's good soda just try it" and I walked out of the kitchen w/out my dinner and w/out soda. DH got mad at me and said I was behaving childishly, which pissed me off even more. How friggin hard was it to get coke? I'll tell ya how hard. It's because he was out of ciggarettes and wanted the money to buy them so he got the cheap soda instead of getting the 2 liter of coke like I requested. I mean I know that I probably over-reacted, but c'mon I asked for something in paticular and didn't get it. I could understand if I sent him to the store with only $2.00 and when he got there didn't have enough to get coke and had to get the other kind. That would have been alright, but to take someone else's money (my money to be exact b/c I had JUST handed DH $25.00) and buy something for yourself WITHOUT asking - to me that's stealing. Am I being silly for feeling that way?? *sigh*
GOD, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference ~ Amen.
I dont think your being childish at all.. I know that if I sent someone to the store to get a speicific thing and they S..T..I..L..L.. would have had enough money to buy a generic pack of cigaretts I would have been mad too. Next time you go shoping with your DSS for clothes or whatever he may need at the time get the cheapest off brand thing and see how he likes it..
