Drop The Calls!

Today during dinner, it happend again! I'm blowing off some steam, venting about my job to my husband and..............his cell phone rings. This is a fairly common occurance during dinner, and it's almost always 'family'. My husband is retired, so he's available ALL DAY, EVERYDAY to talk to whom ever he wants. I however commute 400 miles a week, to an emotionally toxic environment and I'm stressed out at the end of the day.

Dinner is about the only time I get his undivided attention, because he's either watching sports on tv, or reading about sports on the computer.

So, I'm upset about these phone calls during dinner, because I think it's rude for 'family' to call when they KNOW I have just gotten home from the pit!

Am I being a big baby about this? Do I just need to drop it and accept this is the way it's going to be? Should I just find someone else to talk to?

Men and their cells phones!

Let him know that it bothers you and see if it changes. You need to give him a chance to let him tell his family to call at another time.

If not then he lacks respect for your relationship.
