Locked my husband out of the house

January 30th, 2009 at 06:30 pm

So yesterday my husband comes home rather late. Seems he stopped at target to pick up some deodorant, thats all he needed but he stopped at the clearance aisles since he was there.

He comes in with just the deodorant and says he needs to go back to the car to bring something in.

Through the storm door I see him wrangling a rather large item out of the car. I think to myself, some sort of shelves, or desk, something to help in the living room tangle of mismatched holders of junk, or for the garage, that place could use organization (throw out all the garbage and there would be plenty of room, but I digress)

As he comes closer I see it is a box larger than my oldest with some sort of colorful graphic on the front, a kids item? Maybe shelves for their rooms?

Then he says it is a table hockey game...

I literally locked the door and walked away.

"But I always wanted one of these" he called after me.

For those of you who do not know we live in a small house, 3 bedrooms yes, but with 6 of us, the fact that the house is pretty much just 3 bedrooms, a small kitchen and a small living room, not to mention the smallness of said bedrooms, life is a bit cramped.

So I left him out in the cold with his giant hockey game.

"But BIL and I used to love playing this kind of game together" I heard him calling.

Then as JC headed to find out what all the comotion was, I heard him get quiet, he was trying to convince JC to unlock the door for him! I put a stop to that.

"It is a small hockey table, it wont take up much space!" came a new plea

I proceeded to serve up dinner for the kids.

"It is really cold out here" (you would think growing up in PA he would have thicker blood)

Then finally silence, as I began eating dinner with the kids, I noticed no new complaints from outside.

"Wait just let me explain" came a voice from right behind me.

Seems he decided to sneak in another door!

I contimplated making a run for the car and starting a new life, but then I remembered how badly the car was cluttered as well.

I let him talk instead.

Apparently he bought it as a present for the nieces and nephews, who live in a 3 bedroom BIG house. Which is ok, then he told me the price, which was nice.

The deodorant was on sale too.

    Ha-ha, very funny blog today! I know what you mean though. I see these great exercise videos and they look kinda fun, but my house is so small, I have nowhere I could use one. Someone on the forums is talking about getting a Wii Fit and they seem great, but again, same problem, I have no space.

    You left me much was it?

    I'm glad it worked out for all.

    oh dear, is there room in the garage? my DH would get mad if I locked him out and believe me there are plenty of times I should have. thank goodness he has a great sense of humor.

    OMG, that's insane. One of the craziest blog entries I've read in a while. I almost thought he bought a manikin from the same store I went to.

    Oh man, I can totally feel the cold air as I read that too, knowing full well I could easily be in that situation. "But honey, it was on sale! And the kids will love it!"

    Just came to say that I'm still laughing about this one....

    But I think I'm laughing out of fear.

    That is SO funny! I bet your hubby doesn't come home with something like that again without explaining *ahead* of time!

    Sometimes I wish it was possible to lock myself out of the house when I think I've bought a great item "on sale" ...

    Sadly, I just get locked out of the house on "accident" by my daughter.

    you crack me up.

    Glad you all laughed Smile
    Just so you all know, I knew full well the other door was open, and the whole exchange took less than a minute from locked door to explanation complete, but it sure is funnier if I draw it out.
