He is Upset...

Little rant time !
My H's car has been out of service since January 2010.
It was in the shop for over a month. After check up he was told that repairs ascended to almost 3k USD.
Since he had a business trip he decided to take the car out of the shop and let it sit in the parking space we have in the apartment where we live.  He said he would take care of it after we came back.
During his business trip we then took a couple of days to stay in Madrid and then Marrakech ( I am telling you all of this so you can establish a time frame).
We are in April, almost mid April. The car is still sitting in the parking space covered with a thick layer of dust.
I ask him at least every other day. 


FOUR months people!

I drop him off at work in the mornings,  he walks home in the afternoons as it takes him about 15 minutes and uses my car during the weekend.
Where am I taking all of this is ..... HOW MUCH DAMN LONGER is he going to have that car sitting there !!????? (note this car HAS NOT been paid for).
So, yesterday and today again I decided to not give him a ride.
I did it because if 2 main things: I AM LATE EVERYDAY because of him and also because he needs to get his car fixed.  I think I need to have him FEEL THAT NEED.
Now he is upset.  What do you think ?

- Brown textile shoes Baci

- Silver flower pendant gift from Thania (10 + years ago)

hm. Things would not go well with my hubby if I did something like that...

I suppose you already talked to him about it, and he isn't making any moves anyways? Maybe if he gives you a specific date to have his car fixed/paid for/whatever by, then you will give him rides UP TO THAT day- give and take?

As for him making you late every day- is that one of you (or both) doesn't get up early enough to drop him off less than 15 minutes away and you to go to work? If HE is having trouble being ready in time, make it clear the bus leaves at X:XX o'clock ON THE DOT. If he isn't ready, he walks.

I can understand your frustration, for sure. I agree with Meli's suggestion about laying down the law as to when the bus leaves.

As you've probably figured out by now, you can't force your husband to get his car fixed. Hell, if that were possible my mother-in-law would be living in Siam right now.

Cute shoes, btw.

"You have a reputation for being straightforward and honest."
You have helped him.
You have told him he is making you late.
It isn't fair on you.
If he can't sort the car out then he must sort himslef out.
be cruel to be kind 9to both of you).
This advice can be taken or ignored but it comes from someone who ha sbeen married to a very stubborn man for 21 years!!
