Re: New Here!
My husband just texted me using WiFi on his way back to the states from the UK. I told him I recorded the conversation and what happened. He said he wasn't sorry for going out and having fun with his team, and that when some of them started to get goofy drunk and all wanted to go to a nightclub, he left. I stay at home now, but before I worked in counseling, so there was never any buisness travel. It just seems a bit odd to me. I understand his behavior was not acceptable, but how do I hold him accountable? I can tell him how it made me feel, and play the recording, I doubt he will listen to it though. He will say he's sorry, and he wants to move on and have a good weekend....
First of all, I have an idea of who his staff is from around the world and a few people from here. Most our are age, 40's married with kids, only one female I've met once from here is maybe 30ish, married with a young son. Maybe I'm insane, I can see all going out, but the fact that they were quiet frankly it sounds like getting sh## faced drunk in front of their boss and then all wanting to go out to a night club in London on a Thursday night? It's not like they are a bunch of twenty somethings. Is this normal behavior on work trips, to get wasted and going to night clubs?
My husband I think realized at the end of our texts he probably messed up and he said he's apparently a bad husband. I know he will come home, apologize and not want to talk about it. His drunkenness has caused a few (3) occasions at home this year. Once out with friends, when he got drunk and started talking about how much of a pain I was being pregnant. (I was mortified, I got pregnant with twins on my honeymoon, and then miscarried identical girls which no one knew about, and I suffered severe depression after) they other couple, especially the wife seemed confused as we obviously don't have kids together. We haven't heard from them since. It's that kind of weird drunk behavior he will do, or become mean at times. I'd say in the past year there has been five times, with the first two being very bad when he was drunk.
