Re: My "always late" husband drives me crazy
Is there a clock radio by the bed? Can he turn on his cell phone and set the alarm on that? (Doesn't take much effort or brains to do either ...).
It's his job; thus, his responsibility to get himself out of bed like a responsible adult.
What you have said regarding his attitude about work sends up MAJOR red flags for me. I was married to someone just like this ... and he lost a number of jobs due to the same attitude ... and each time he was totally surprised that he was fired. After all, it had to be the fault of the morons he had for bosses. Frankly, I believe my ex was the quintessential narcissist. It sounds like your husband has those traits too.
EVERYBODY is replaceable and expendable, particularly in this economy. EVERYBODY.
I can understand how his behavior would drive you nuts. I'd also be scared. He has an overly-inflated view of himself. Maybe he'd better look around at all the folks who are being laid off from jobs, taking drastic pay cuts, taking on more work and longer hours due to staff cutbacks.
You need to discuss you concerns with him about this situation, but leave your emotions out of it. If he still doesn't get it, then I'm afraid your family might suffer the consequences sooner rather than later.
I refuse to make anyone a priority in my life who considers me nothing more than an option.
You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.
