What I Meant to Say Wednesday


Well, What I Meant To Say turned into what I said and shouldn't have said this week.
I buy boneless/skinless chicken boobs from Costco. They come in 8 pouches of two. I throw it in the freezer when I get home. Each pouch has perforations around it so you can tear them apart individually. From many past experiences I have learned that they never rip the right way so I use scissors.

What I said to Hubby:
Will you get a package of chicken out of the freezer please?
(I was feeding two babies or else I would've done it myself)
He brings out the eight packages still intact.
I continue in saying:
You will probably want to use scissors to cut one off.
He continues to rip at the tape.
I say: If you pull too much at the package it will rip and you will have too many open packages.
He continues to tear at the perforations.
I say: The scissors should be right there in the block.
I hear riiiiipppp.
He says bad words.
I say but shouldn't have: WHAT DID I JUST SAY?!? YOU ARE AS BAD AS THE KIDS WHEN IT COMES TO LISTENING. I KNOW YOU HEAR ME BUT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEARING AND LISTENING. I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU JUST DID THAT. I'M NOT TELLING YOU THIS BECAUSE I THINK YOUR STUPID AND NEED STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS. I SAY IT CAUSE I'VE LEARNED FROM EXPERIENCE AND DON'T NEED THE SAME STUPID MISTAKES. (HE SAYS : SO I'M STUPID?!?) NO I'M NOT CALLING YOU STUPID. I SAID YOUR BEING STUPID! IF YOU WOULD JUST LISTEN! (HE SAYS: JUST USE THE ONE THAT RIPPED. WHY YOU GETTING SO MAD?) I'M GOING TO HAVE TO BECAUSE GROSS CHICKEN JUICES WILL BE ALL OVER THE PLACE IF I DON'T. I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU JUST KEPT RIGHT ON GOING WITH PULLING AND TUGGING WHEN I TOLD YOU TO USE SCISSORS... I TOLD YOU!!!!!
He walks away from the chicken. I walk away from the two starving babies and finish the job I just should've done myself in the first place.
I continued to mumble and ramble on for ten minutes about how amazed I was at how he just continued to ignore my instructions like I was the dumb one for telling him how to cut chicken, blah blah, should've listened, blah blah, can't believe it, blah blah blah. Stupid is as Stupid does!

I must be PMSing.
