Yesterday I had an extremely long day. I had yet another boring training for my new job that I despise and then I had to go to work afterwards for a long shift.
Lately, I've been feeling a little down in the dumps about this job, its been so far, extremely stressful and not fulfilling, but its a start. I've been sticking it out and applying elsewhere in the meantime. Other that that, I've been trying my best to make time for my boyfriend despite my odd hours and feeling exhausted since I work almost everyday.
Yesterday, I had a awful day at work (no surprise there) and told my boyfriend I'd be going home to have some dinner (I was starving) and then heading to bed (we dont live together).
He was fine with this, he knows my job gets to me, but we hardly discuss it. Sometimes I feel like Im screaming inside about it. Still, I try not to bring my issues around him and just relax when Im with him, but some days Im just tired and go home.
Anyway, yesterday I knew he didnt have work. He doesnt work full-time, so whether its his day off or not, he usually has time to nap at some point in the day regardless and will usually eat, sleep, eat, sleep etc. I've been with him long enough to know this is his pattern in the day.
Anyway, I didnt get off of work last night till 11pm, I told him I loved him when I was about to get off and go home. And then he asked if I loved him enough to pick him up a pack of cigarettes and drop them off? He lives down the street from my work, but even then I flipped! I was furious that he knew how tired I was and that all I wanted to do was go home to sleep and eat, something he had the luxury of doing all day! He waited till 11 oclock at night to ask me just when I was getting off my shift to go get him cigarettes and bring them to him!? I told him he had all day to do that, but thats when he said he had been out, Im assumming drinking with his friends, which he does several nights a week, while Im at work. He then made a comment, which I assume was a drunk one, saying basically since I was saying "hell no, Im not getting you cigarettes!", that "how can he trust his future wife then?"
I then freaked out even more, telling him its not the 1920's and if he wants to find a wife thats going to do things that he can perfectly well do for himself he better find some stupid woman willing to do it for him or live home forever (he lives with his overbearing mother). I was extremely angry, work aside, and all he said was "WOW". I said sorry.. and went to bed. Low and behold, hes obviously not to happy with me today, but out of the blue, hes been asking me lately to do things for him like this. Would you be irritated or did I overreact?
