@becausescience thanks for that picture of waffles, now I'm super hungry for waffles and my breakfast was only a pack of Belvita's and they just didn't cut it....
Warning-Long rant head!
So my DH is being a TW over Thanksgiving. He works retail and the company he works for is open 24/7 364 (only close for 24hrs on Christmas but he's still expected to go to work at 10pm Christmas night) and they stagger their black Friday sales so some start at 6pm, 8pm etc on actual Thanksgiving so needless to say he normally works. To accommodate his work schedule so that he could eat dinner with us (my parents, sister, grandparents, aunt and uncle) my mom moved Thanksgiving dinner up to 1pm from 4pm about 5 years ago. 2 years ago he had to work noon-10pm so there was literally no way he could have eaten dinner but this year he doesn't work until 8pm and he's planning on calling off anyway (his company treats it's employees terribly) but he has decided that he doesn't want to go to my parents house (2 mins away) and would like me to cook Thanksgiving dinner at home for the 4 of us. I've never had to cook on Thanksgiving before (I've made a full turkey day dinner though) and I've always had it at my mom's house. We've been together for 9 years and he's never once said he wants me to cook but the first time he does ask me to do it I'll be 5 months pregnant and on my feet in the kitchen for 5-6 hours. I told him I didn't want to do it and he should just suck it up and go to my parent's house (he doesn't like my grandma or sister that much) but he refuses. I gave him the power to make the final decision and he kept going back and forth over going/not going so this morning he calls me and tells me that he texted my mom that the kids and I were coming but he was staying home. He said the only reason he did that was because I had "so much time to tell my mom I'm not coming over but I always had an excuse for why I didn't tell her". I flipped out on him and told him he kept changing his mind, sometimes hourly, and since I gave him the power of the decision it was his job to inform the necessary parties of the decision. He's now trying to play the "poor me I'm just going to order a pizza" BS and I'm not having it. I told him this was his decision, if he doesn't like it he only has himself to blame I'm not going to give in to his whining and decide to stay home and cook (which is what he wants but he thinks he's being sneaky by not saying it). Just so frustrating!
@LaurenAnn0405 Tell your SO to suck it up. Or use his big boy words and explain to you what he really wants. Not play games.*snip*
