It was my birthday today and it's the worst day I've had for years. It started off when my SO was supposed to take the kids to swimming at 9am but didn't wake up, so I had to trim my pubes and get organised an hour before the class started.
Come home and my bday card was on the kitchen bench, next to an empty gift bag because he couldn't find the coffee mug I wanted and didn't order it until today.
I cracked the shits and just left, went into town and had lunch in my car and got my nails done. Get home and still nothing, kids are being little cunts, which they usually never are. Get the kids in the bath and he informs me we are going out for tea...I inform him my most hated thing to do is go out for dinner with little kids so I told him to cancel the booking.
I feed kids fucking fish fingers because it's getting late, so he goes and gets me a meal from the fish and chip shop, and an icecream cake. Probably feels all proud of himself for saving the day, but I want to kill this asshole. It's just like he wants everything to be perfect but instead of getting me some generic ass shit like a candle because the thing I wanted isn't here yet, he just does nothing?
Idgaf about material shit BUT FUCK ME. I work my c*nt off for this family and I deserve to be thought of for 10 mins and to unwrap a gift.
I've cried for hours today. Fuck it all. I'm going to set aside a day and drive to the city and spend a fuck load of money on myself. I might also forget fathers day and his birthday.
Sorry for the rant, I have never felt so unappreciated.
A sidenote here: On the website that will not be named, a common question asked is "He forgot my birthday, can I be mad about that"
And the answer always is: "You should communicate that you are mad about it to him, he isn't expected to know how important a birthday is"
Birthdays are always important. Once in awhile (on the website that will not be named), a man will post a picture where no one attended his birthday and all the comments are full of sympathy for him.
A person who doesn't care about your birthday doesn't care about you.
