First, happiest of birthdays to one of my favorite red heads, floweringjudas! I'm so glad to hear that things are going better in your life. <3 <3 <3 And another happy birthday goes to the ADORABLE elucidate_this! Two girls I've met in person, and both just as lovely.

Now, a most important question about YOU and YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER.

Poll #1020942 To Nag, Or Not To Nag: That is the Poll Question

I ask my significant other to indicate time they will be home that evening.

I have no significant other. THANKS, STONEY. *cries*

Askin the above information is:

irritating to the S.O.
a good way to plan dinner/evening plans
a way for me to wield ULTIMATE CONTROL MUWAH AH AH *evil hands*

I speak to my S.O. ____ times a day

multiple times via phone/email/text
Well, I'm a bride of Christ, so I carry a conversation with him in my HEART ALL DAY EVERY DAY.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 low, 10 high) that last option was how offensive?

Pshaw. Lighten up.

Stoney is:

so awesome, and her husband should shut up and be glad he loves him.
irritating Mr. Stoney, and he is going to LEAVE HER, zomg.
obviously wasting time when she should be writing.
probably needing to take a nap. And have chocolate. Ooooh, and a massage!
thinking that everyone should have that last one. Naps for all!

IF YOU GUESSED THAT I ASK MY HUSBAND WHEN HE'S COMING HOME EVERY NIGHT, YOU WOULD BE CORRECT. also, it is irritating him, and I'm setting out to show I'm not the only wife that wants to know when her S.O. is coming home. (this is what happens when your normally traveling husband takes a project at home.)

*calls husband to find out when he's coming home, ahahahahahaha*

Edit: Um... I am not a hermaphrodite. That should read that Mein Mann should be glad that "SHE" loves him. Ahem. :D

I had to say no to asking every night, because hubby and I commute together and I drive, so I know when he'll be home - whenever I get him there!
Jul. 13th, 2007 08:41 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha! YOU WIN!
Jul. 13th, 2007 08:33 pm (UTC)
I MADE IT SAFE AND SOUND. I've currently parked my butt at an internet cafe before heading back to the hotel for a shower and a quick nap before braving the streets of downtown Atlanta at night. I'm thinking I might either (a) die or (b) pick up a hooker.

HAHAHAHA, go annoy Mr. Stoney some more. *I* would never nag AND I would let us have Dreamland every other meal. I would make an awesome wife.
Jul. 13th, 2007 08:42 pm (UTC)


...can I at least come with you guys to Dreamland on occasion?

Okay, but what if Chris WASN'T home the same time every day? And should it matter that I'm trying to prepare family meals, so I need to know if he's going be really late (8 and beyond) in which case I'll just go ahead and feed the kids? Hmmm.

Not only do I ask him (though not every day — since he's usually home before I am), but he asks me every day without fail. Again, usually because I'm home after he is.

AHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Oh my GOSH, that would be the most awesome thing on the planet earth, and other planets besides!!!!!

Jul. 13th, 2007 08:40 pm (UTC)
AHH's schedule is super-irregular so I ask him pretty much every day so I have an idea of how to plan my day/evening. And also so I know when to expect him because I'm a little crazy? PERHAPS. Also, sometimes I talk to him multiple times through email if we're exchanging links while he's in class and sometimes I don't talk to him at all so I picked multiple choice and you can't stop me! Mua ha ha!
Jul. 13th, 2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
I mean, honestly! Is it too much to ask to know when he'll be traveling home (I'm turning into Molly Weasley... If only I had her clock!) so I can get dinner on the table in a timely fashion? :D

I ask everyday, multiple times.

How else will I know when to get the lovah out of the bedroom in time to remake the bed?


I can't be the *only* one.

Or, you know, so I can plan on how many to feed, and when.
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:12 pm (UTC)
UM, YEAH. I'm raising my hand: you are NOT the only one!
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:08 pm (UTC)
We are currently working in the same cubicle, so the question doesn't really apply in the way you mean it. But. If we were working in different places, I would totally ask that question.
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:13 pm (UTC)
Sure, sure. He stands, you know it's time to go. Oooh, you could ask him all day if he's going to the break room, the bathroom, to the copier... (Hahahaha. Don't do that.)

But yeah! I mean, here I am all day knitting and wearing capris and sparying my curls to keep me looking fresh... How else will I know when to take the plastic off the couches and have his dry martini ready?!?!
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:15 pm (UTC)
Mr. Stoney is crazy if he thinks other people don't ask their s.o.'s what time they'll be home! CRAZY IN THE HEAD!

*waves to Mr. Stoney if he's reading this*

Heee, in terms of "speak to X times daily" I think you mean on the phone when the s.o. is not there, but I was having a funny moment imagining couples who say, "Good morning," to each other gravely, and then NOTHING the rest of the day. Once is all you get!

her husband should shut up and be glad he loves him.
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:30 pm (UTC)
OKAY, SEE, RIGHT. Yeah!! I mean, I know we're all out of practice with the everyday routine, but come on! :D

Ahahahahaha, yes, I should have clarified that line of questioning, heeee! I love your image. I imagine grey cardigans and lots of beige in their home, too.

*is tewtally a hermaphrodite from the phrasing..*

OKAY, WHAT?? My husband just pulled up with a bowling pin. ?????? WHY JUST ONE?

Mine is gone all week, so I mostly ask what DAY he'll be home. Once I know which day, then yep, I definitely ask what time he'll be home (usually for dinner purposes). And yes, he gets pissy about it. *strangles*
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:36 pm (UTC)
See, that's normally how it is at my house, too. My husband travels every week, and is only home on the weekends. (And he never balked at my asking when his flight was...)

he's just now taken on a project here in town, so it's all so new. *blushes like a newlywed* Hahaha.
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:31 pm (UTC)
I know when he's coming home from work, because it's usually the same time, or if it's going to be early he often phones to tell me so, and he never goes out in the evenings.
But personally, when I go out in the evenings, I find it intensely irritating to be asked what time I'll be back - it feels like I have to say a time earlier than I'll actually be home.
I refuse to carry a mobile phone, too, because I feel that would be used to guilt-trip me into coming home early! Also, I feel like a dork being spoken to on a mobile.
But then, we eat fairly randomly, and rarely have plans that involve timing anything very much.
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:32 pm (UTC)
... also, my answers don't really count because I think I'm really a guy.

This is tricky for me; my SO resides in Australia. I...do not. I'm about as far awy from him as I can get without coming back the other side of the planet.

So, if he did live here, or I there, I'd ask him when he's coming home, so I can plan dinner and er, perhaps, other things, and so I know when to start seriously worrying if he's not home.

As for the telecommunications: yes--he generally calls me twice a day--at least once. And there is, indeed, texting. :)

Tell him he should be flattered you want to know when he's coming home so you have stuff ready for him and know when it's time to break out he search parties.

As a compromise--maybe you can ask if there's a general time he's usually home, keep that in mind as default arrival time, and then ask him to call you whenever he'll be early or late. Otherwise, you simply assume the default arrival time.
Jul. 13th, 2007 10:34 pm (UTC)
We're still in the bumping elbows process of having him home for a change. (Read: he's used to hotels and maid service. Ahem. MUST BE NICE.)

The general time frame keeps coming up. Maybe I can convince him he needs one. :D

Procrastinational polls. The best kind

*takes a nap*
Jul. 13th, 2007 10:34 pm (UTC)
I'M SAYING! *reads polls all afternoon*
Jul. 13th, 2007 09:57 pm (UTC)
Dude, you are being totally reasonable. My Dad calls my mum a LOT, which okay, sometimes she is all "omg, official stalker", but mostly it's an important part of their relationship and A Good Thing. My mum worries about my dad when they're apart, my dad worries about my mum, and they like to check in - also they have the same favourite TV shows and quite often my dad'll be watching them in his hotel and he'll ring right as it ends to chat about it with her.

Also, am not being lofty, but although obviously it's my parents not me/Laura, my Dad works away about as much as Mr S does, so I do get where you're coming from. It's politeness that he let you know. You are cooking food. He has CHILDREN. They want to see him. Get Emily to look angelic.

Also whatttt, Mr S, you are being a queen, loosen up or your wife will run away and live with the lesbians. WE RECRUIT.
Jul. 13th, 2007 10:36 pm (UTC)
See, YES! I am being reasonable!! I am loving and wanting him home and wanting the family to be all Normal Rockwell at the table with our roast goose (read: ordered pizza) and it's just courtesy, imo.

Ahahahaha, he just read your last comment and laughed out loud. Heee!
Jul. 13th, 2007 10:04 pm (UTC)
I actually have to slightly amend my votes. For the first, I usually ask if he expects to be late. He's generally home around 6ish. Sometimes he says no, won't be late, then goes to the bar and I don't see him until 11. Then I'm the one who gets irritated.

As to speaking to him -- well, he comes home for lunch. So I picked once a day, but it's rare that I call him at work. When we were in MD it was probably once a day, a few times a week by phone.

The bride of Christ thing was hilarious. I love you.
Jul. 13th, 2007 10:37 pm (UTC)
See, if he had a regular time that he came home, then I most likely wouldn't ask (unless to say, let me know if there's a change.) Yeah, the whole skipping to the bar thing and not letting me know would royally piss me off, especially if I had dinner sitting out and the kids around the table.

Hahahahaha! OMG I AM HIS BRIIIIIIIIIDE. *shows you my ring*

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
