this afternoon, after we got back from having ice cream and purchasing some paint, the wife spent some time painting the sides of the kitchen cabinets, even with the kids around.
The little boy got hungry so he and I walked into the kitchen and I started to get him some food when the wife yelled to him “Stay away from those cabinets”. He had gone over to the drawer where the spoons were like he usually does when he wants some sausage and eggs.
She said “did you touch my cabinets? Let me see your hands.” She said “Damn it, I told you to get away from the fucking cabinets!” and he cried since she yelled really loud at him.
She says to me “here’s his fucking spoon!”
The first thing that is wrong with this situation is that she should know not to do her god damned fucking painting while the kids are up, especially in a room like the kitchen.
The second thing that is wrong with this situation is that, if I were working on music while the kids were up and I had the same reaction, I would have gotten yelled at for being over reactive.
I felt compelled to become violent so I just walked away but the urge to do something like smash her cabinet of wine and champagne glasses was a picture that I couldn’t get out of my head and even a couple of hours later, the whole thing is still pissing me off.
She’s such a damned fucking hypocrite, it’s her idea or nothing is good enough. If you try to counteract what she wants to do with a logical solution, she’ll have a counter argument ready but if it’s an idea that she doesn’t like, she’ll try to convince you with her logic that it can’t possibly work.
I’ll be glad when she goes away on business the week after next.
