Hubby and I get along – generally because I choose to ignore his little idiosyncrasies and just blog about them to get it off of my chest.
As you all know well, we do the soccer thing at least six days a week year round. There are four soccer players in the family and they just alternate seasons. Anyway, due to this I frequently buy
bottled water. We own and use refillable bottles but things just don’t always work as they should (and I prefer these when someone is sick). We also, use the bottled water containers several times before recycling them.
So we were doing our usual entire family shopping trip and I grabbed a case of water. Hubby picked it up and returned it to the shelf. I just looked at him.
“We’re trying to save money, remember?” Well, yeah, I remember, you tell me every time we’re together. Grrr.
“Yes, I remember that we’re trying to save money but we only drink water and it’s really handy to have these in the fridge if we’re running late.”
“You’ll manage.” (And I managed not to loose my temper.)
So, last week when we did our usual grocery shopping trip Hubby stuck a $5.00 case of water in the basket. I looked at him and said, “I thought we were trying to save money.”
“You know you can get those for $2.50.”
“Well, not cheaper than the $1.50 I’ve been spending on them since you stopped buying them for me.”
And still I managed not to loose my temper… until we left the store.
