One thing (of many) that I don’t like about living with a passive aggressive man is that it has made me suspicious.
Yesterday, he wanted me to go visit his mom. She is not doing well.
I was having a very rough week-end (in case you couldn’t tell from my previous post) and I did not go visit his mom.
I could tell last night and this morning that he was mad at me because I didn’t visit his mom. But he didn’t say so. He just did the “barely speaking to me” thing and let me know by his body language that he was not happy with me.
It’s not quite the same as a visit, but today, from work, I called his mom to talk with her for a few minutes. I could tell it cheered her up a little.
So tonight, when I came home from work, gym, and grocery store, here’s what I got from him.
“I want to talk to you for a minute. There is something that you do that really bothers me. You leave your laptop plugged in. I see the little green light on it and it just bugs me. It’s not good for the battery to leave it plugged in. But it’s your laptop and you can do whatever you want.”
Okay, so I’ll try to remember to unplug my laptop during the day. I unplug it at night already.
But seriously? The little green light bugs him?
And fair enough. To each his own. He doesn’t have to like the little green light shining on my laptop.
It made me suspicious, though.
He wanted me to visit his mom. I didn’t. He got mad. I called his mom. I presume she told him; it’s what she would do. And he doesn’t like it that I leave my laptop plugged in.
Maybe I’m stretching it here.
That’s what living with a passive aggressive man will do to you.
The insanity of passive aggression.
