"This is the rule (with his hands on my shoulders, close up in my face) If you think of the something you want from the grocery store and do not tell me, you are not allowed to mention it when I get back"
Well here's a good one. One day I ran out of milk and popped down the store half a mile away to get some. OCPD wife comes home from work:
me "I went out and got some milk earlier, so you can cross it off your list"
her "Why didn't you just text me to get some on my way home?"
me "it's only half a mile to the shop"
her "yes but I'm already going past it"
Fine, so next time I'm home and run out of milk I text her. She gets home:
her, all bothered and long suffering, doesn't say anything to me a half an hour.
Eventually, her "You could have got milk yourself you know!"
me "Last time I did that you told me to text you to get some."
her "I was in a meeting until late and then I had to go ALL the way round to the store JUST to get milk. And you KNOW what the traffic's like this time of day. I could have done without it. I's taken me an extra 45 minutes to get home because of this.." and so the rant continued...
me "So why didn't you just text back and tell me you didn't have time?"
her - switches into silent mode and walks off. Rest of evening is tense and uncomfortable.
Honestly, I swear she deliberately sets my up for a fall. It's as if they WANT to get p****d off with us. She also expects me to be able to read her mind, from 20 miles away. You're always wrong even when you're doing it right...
Incidentally, has anyone had furniture OCPD? Furniture has to be positioned in such a place so that it can remain undisturbed for the rest of time. If furniture IS moved then it MUST at ALL COSTS be repositioned such that the feet are exactly aligned with the original 'feet marks' in the carpet. Also, if furniture must be moved temporarily, then it must not create new feet marks in the carpet. This can be achieved by constantly moving it, every day, to a different position. If OCPD wife had her way everything and everyone would hover above the carpet. Oh, and don't touch the walls, you'll disturb the paint and leave a shiny patch that can be seen if you look at it from an angle with the light in the right place...
