My husband crossed the line this weekend. He touched my coffee thermos from Starbucks. My $26.00 coffee thermos from Starbucks. He more than touched it. He manhandled it with all the care someone would give a cockroach in a wedding bouquet. He treated it like an infestation.
APPARENTLY (*insert exasperated sigh here*) he doesn't want it sitting in the coffee cup holder in MY vehicle. Well, I suppose my Honda CRV isn't exactly MINE but if you trace our financial history back to when we were first engaged, I DID contribute greatly to paying off his car loan. Which means, that's a credit I'm owed toward our current vehicle which I interpret as giving me full rights to putting whatever thermos I want in the coffee cup holder.
Just sayin' ...
He took my CRV this morning - I let him - my daughter was involved and it was in her best interest. My coffee thermos was sitting on the work bench in the garage when I had to use the pulley-system to hoist myself into his mile-high pick up truck. My coffee thermos is now in the coffee holder in his truck. I'm not sure how he thought he would benefit...
It's hard living with a non-coffee drinker. They just don't understand ... but I love him dearly anyway. Although, if he touches my thermos again I just might touch his hunting bow! :)
