B-day Tantrums & LQ with Hubby

Firstly, I wanted to thank every single soul who remembered, greeted, texted, emailed, dropped messages on my fb wall - thank you all sooooo much!! Special thanks to my sister who baked me some crinkles even if I just got the pictures of 'em :o) and to my friends at work & old colleagues, who paid for my lunch at Famous Dave's - thanks again!!!! It was nice to hangout with them after sooo long :o)

Anyways, I had a good birthday yesterday. I'm old but came with the age are tons of blessings to be thankful of. I don't have the right to complain at all.

That being said, you might be asking, sooo what's up with the title of my post then???


I didn't want to blog about this however, I just needed some outlet to release a bit of my heartache (ha, sounds serious, huh?).

LQ, btw, means Lovers Quarrel (I'm not sure if it's coined from the Phils, but most Filipinos do understand when we say LQ).

Anyways, so, we (with hubby, mamsy, baby) went to Claim Jumper in Tempe for dinner last night. It wasn't too crowded when we got there so when the hostess seated us on a 4-chair table, I asked her if she could find us a booth instead (much easier if you have a baby in a car seat in tow). So she agreed and told me she'd find one for us. After a few minutes, she came back and seated us somewhere at the back. I think that section of the restaurant wasn't open that time so we're the only "diners" in that area.

I wasn't too happy, firstly because the A/C wasn't working in that area so it was dang warm. Secondly, when I asked my darling hubby if he could ask for us to be seated somewhere else, I was discombobulated when he said - "It's ok, it's not that bad.. we might end up having to wait longer if we ask them to find us another booth".

I admit, usually have a very short fuse, so after hearing him say that, I felt that my blood went up high to my head. It already irritated me when the hostess seated us in a sub par area. But what irritated me the most was that my hubby - the father of my baby, my supposed-to-be-knight-in-shining-armor, the defender of my tiny universe-- just accepted the fact that we were short-changed!!!!! Grrrr.

I soooo hate it when people just let things happen to them and not do anything to get the situation fixed. Grrrrr.

That time, I knew it's all up to me so I got up and talked to one of the crews and asked them if they could find us a decent table. Goodness, how hard was that???? In less than a few minutes, the manager came to our table, found us another booth, apologized and got things going!!!!!

Now why do I have to be the one to do that???? Isn't that supposed to be a guy's thing????? Am I expecting too much from my husband???? Am I over-reacting????!!!!!

So during the entire evening, I didn't speak a word to my husband. Ignore galore!!!!!! I might have went too far but he didn't even bother asking me what's wrong, so.. whatever! I went early to bed last night, so even up this morning, we haven't really spoken. I didn't prep his breakfast and lunch, so I'm guessing he's getting the picture that we're not in "good" terms at this very moment.

I'm sure he's clueless as to what he's done why I'm acting like this. Not too surprising cuz guys are always clueless anyways when it comes to reading us gals.

Oh well... what a day!!!

PS: On a not-so-frustrating note... before we left the restaurant, the manager, came to us again and apologized. He gave us a 6-layer slice of their infamous Motherload Chocolate Cake as a token of them being sorry for what had happened. I think it was hubby who talked to the manager before we left and demanded for further apology so he came by and personally apologized to me. He doesn't have to, but I appreciated the gesture.

men are so dense talaga! and trust me, my hubby is also like that. he hates transferring to other tables when we're already seated...kahit na pangit ang seats namin! tapos ako rin didiskarte so we can be moved to a more decent table. hmpf!

anyway, i'm glad your birthday went great pa rin with all the food & the company. many more to come, my dear! hugs!

And I agree - guys are clueless. Jay is like that din - hindi nya alam na nag tatampo/inis ako unless sabihin ko talaga...tsk tsk tsk.
