Let's say your husband was supposed to be home sometime after his class finished at 6pm. Let's also say that in anticipation of his arrival at 6:15-6:30 you cooked a couple of bacon-wrapped fillets, garlic-mashed some potatoes and served up some lovely veg. If it were now say, 7:0526, would you:

a)understand completely that he was administering final exams to his class and the practical portion might have gone a bit long and choke down your cold dinner.

b)eat your dinner and let his get cold(er) while cursing him softly between bites.

c)wait for his un-anticipatable (I'm making it a word!) arrival and eat with him.

d)I'm open to suggestions


Let's also say that you were expecting him at 6ish and were busy cooking dinner so the dogs haven't been walked yet. Who walks 'em?

If this is the type of man that freaks out if I don't call when I'm 15 minutes late, how many calls do you think I would receive about this?
Who does she think she is?
Damn Good Whacking

I choose option B. And then when he gets home I'd let him have it. Oh, and I'd make him walk the dogs too!

I'm going to agree with the first post...eat my dinnner BUT I wouldn't let such fine food go to waste. No-just give it to the dogs : ) When he asks where his dinner is at, tell him since he was late and didn't bother calling, you didn't know whether or not he picked something up to eat...so you fed his to the dogs. So there, you won't have to chew him a new ass for not calling because you dropped that little hint in there already. Play it cool. He will kiss your butt to no end.

MEN!!!!!!!

I wouldn't have waited as long as you have.

Answer B for me.

And, I'd just wrap his food and put it in the fridge. Hell, I wouldn't even tell him I had made dinner for him, then I'd have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

THEN, I'd take the dogs for a nice long walk to hopefully get my mood under control. Otherwise, I'd be biting off hubbys head for dessert.

I'd have to say B as well. It drives me bonkers when Val does that. He will call and say he's coming home at a certain time and then an hour or two later he's on his way home. And yeah, he walks the dogs! No ifs, ands, or buts!

B is for me. Why should you go hungry.

C - but with a twist - the guilt you make him feel for having you wait, starving. That works best with willy, who does this a lot. Don't forget to snack tho, so you are not really starving.
