3rd Trimester

I have never loved my DH more. (NBR-dirty mag related though!)

So. We get really random magazines.  We don't order them. Some magazine subscription company has decided to just sign us up for stuff.  We moved in December. We still get random things. We don't pay for them. The latest:Yachting.

Anyway.  About 2 months ago I was clearing off the counters and going through mail opening our stack of magazines. (Just got back from vacation-we had like 10)

I grab one, open it. Playboy. With my DH's name on it. And an expiration date for the subscription until next year.  I FLIP out.  

Now I know lots of you on here are fine and dandy with dirty mags and such. I am not.  I don't need 900 people telling me it is natural yada yada yada. You can't change my mind. Big Smile  I just feel if you are married why do you need to look other places?

Anyway. So I spaz out.  Being hormonal, pregnant, an Aires, and pi**ed off not a good thing.  I call him at work (He was on his way there) and flip out on him.

He has no idea why he received the mag.  I have to go through it to find a number to contact someone so he can call and figure out what is going on.  The whole time I have a  2yo and 4yo saying, "Why are you crying Mommy?"  which made me cry even more.

So he calls the place.  Some subscription company set him up with the order. Which we didn't pay for.  Knowing I won't believe this he has a lady from the place call and tell me what happened.  I still don't believe him.

I told him if he wanted to look through it fine, but I didn't want to find it stashed out somewhere. We have 2 little boys.  I don't need to have them find it. It was 3-D on some pages.  Just for 3D sake I thought I would be nice.

I threw it away and we never saw another one. I get the mail every day.

Well we JUST got a phone call. It said private name private number. I picked it up just to see who it was and I heard some girl say she was from Playboy and just wanted to make sure he got his magazine.  He said no-I cancelled  months ago.  I didn't even order it. 

Then she said Oh well we have a special gift for you.  He started going off on her saying how I almost kicked him out of the house, he doesn't want it, he didn't pay for it. And she hung up, which he didn't hear.  Then he started asking if she was still there and I said "Nope, I am though."

Don't think I have ever loved him more.  I feel bad for not believing him...sort of. Wink

Yeah...my pics were so old. I got 3 kids. Nuff said. :)

  • Playboy actually has some pretty good atricles in it!!!  My DH had a subscription for years & I would read them!
  • Huh?  Your telling me someone from Playboy called to check on how your DH walk liking his mag?  Uhh... sorry, but I don't think they do that.
  • We get the mag and I read it! I love the articles and honestly some of the jokes too :)

    But more importantly kudos to your husband for respecting your wishes so nicely!!!!!!!!!! We don't hear enough about that kind of behavior on herre.

  • I'm not sure why you "almost kicked him out" and were in tears when you know you get random magazines all the time. I think you do owe him an apology for not believing him in the beginning.

  • It just floors me that they just sent it out to us.  We have little kids that LOVE opening the mail.  Plus DH would know better than to get them sent here.

    I mean if they could just send them to us, how about the house next to us that has 4 boys ranging from college to age 7?

    Yeah...my pics were so old. I got 3 kids. Nuff said. :)

    We got it through some magazine subscription place. They wanted to make sure we received it, not liked it.  If I typed that, my opps.  The mag subscription places call to make sure we get them.

  • I am so glad you had that clarified for you! That must make you feel soooo much better!

    This.

    I can understand being pissed the playboy showed up in your mailbox when you have kids...pissed at PLAYBOY, not your DH.  It doesn't make sense to me. 

    I didn't almost kick him out.  I think he was scared I would. I never said that to him.  I think he understood how pissed I was and thought I might.

    Oh and I did let the lady who called me have it.

    But why would you be pissed at him? Why would he have to even think that? That would be like me getting pissed at DH because of the AARP mags we get... HOW DARE YOU NOT TELL ME YOU TURNED 50!!! ALL THESE YEARS I THOUGHT WE WERE THE SAME AGE!!! He has nothing to do with their delivery, just like your husband didn't order Playboy, or Yachting, etc.

    I was pissed at him because it does seem odd that we would just receive porn.  Yachting, ok weird to receive. But a dirty mag, that is a different story. I figured they wouldn't just send out mags like that.

    I figured he did it order it. That is why i was pissed. He knows I don't appreciate that kind of stuff in the house.  That is why he was scared I would do something stupid, like kick him out, which I never said or implied AT ALL.

    After I got the story from the subscription people, I wasn't mad at him anymore.  But in that hour I was FURIOUS.

    To the PP who said I owe him an apology, I did say I was sorry.

    Yeah...my pics were so old. I got 3 kids. Nuff said. :)

    We've gotten magazines like Time before from getting on some list... Playboy though?  eh.... Never heard of that before.

    Weird right? We also get Maxim, Us Weekly, Yachting Today, Fast Company (some internet thing I think), Blumesberg weekly.

    I know there are more but we don't even read half of them.  I skim most and then recycle though.

  • My guess is he's got a "friend" that signs him up, and probably got some woman from a "subscription magazine sevice" to call and harass him as a prank.I've never been called about the magazines I do get, and the fact that you continue to get these things, even after moving... sounds like a friend.

    We used to prank subscribe friends to bizarre magazines all the time in college. Cat Fancy for a guy, Maxim for a girl, whatever.

    Also, what's an Aires?

    See, I thought about the "friend" route. I even questioned him on that.  That was my first thought. The one I could think of who would do that wouldn't have the money to do it.  Also he doesn't have our new address. 

    Plus the guys he works with are pretty trust worthy people.  They don't seem like the type that would do that.  One is gay, one is very Christain and has gomne on numerous missionary trips to Haiti, and the other one I jsut can't picture him doing something like that at ALL.

    Also I don't think anyone really has our address other than family and a couple of my friends.  His friends aren't the mailing type.

    Aires-my zodiac sign.

    Oh! Aries!

    Maybe it's a crazy ex-girlfriend, then? I've just never heard about such intense magazine subscription people before.

    Shoot!  I did type that wrong didn't I. Twice huh?  I type just wrong all the time as well.  It comes out as jsut.  My fingers are quicker than me sometimes.

    I didn't even think of the ex route.  Huh. Hmm

    Yeah...my pics were so old. I got 3 kids. Nuff said. :)
  • Awww... I am the same way as you in regards to that kind of stuff. I would definitely be pleased in hearing this type of phone call after something like that happened.

     They certainly do not call this house, and we have been subscribers for years. Maybe OP is having some way to intense pregnancy dreams...

    Well since I answered the PHONE I don't think it could have been this.Confused

    Plus you must not have read down because I clarified that is was the subscription service. And they DO call to see if you are receiving your magazines.

    Yeah...my pics were so old. I got 3 kids. Nuff said. :)
  • I'm with you on the dirty mag/porno stuff. MH knows how i feel about all that crap and would never go against my wishes. He knows if he effed up, his ass would be out of the house until he learned his lesson.

    I feel the same way. You're married, why look somewhere else to get off?? If H can't get what he wants from me, then we got problems.

    Yeah, I paid for a subscription and they never call me!

     

    If you actually PAY for the subscription, they KNOW you want it and ARE happy with it - why would they call YOU??? If they sent out a free sample, of course they would cal to follow up and solicit a sale. Geez - simple marketing.
