Beat this for a bedroom caper!

My partner is very lucky to be in one piece. About a fortnight ago he moved a huge yucca plant into the bedroom to save it from being scoffed by our voracious rosella birds. So far so good. We are hoping to move home so I am going through everything and have progressed well in that area. So far so good. Today he decides that the yucca is not getting enough light so he will move it to the greenhouse. Which means an enormous pot plant has to be lifted across the bed, again, since the gap between my antique glass case and the Victorian bed is not wide enough for the enormous pot. There was an extremely loud crack, followed by even louder swearing and cursing and screaming for a black bag. I kid you not, the compost has gone EVERYWHERE. Unfortunately a drawer was open so my lingerie is full of the stuff. Somehow he got it into boxes I have packed, it is over the bed, under the bed, in my papers which I need daily in my internet activities. Whose fault is all this? MINE. 1. for having the pesky plant. 2. for buying an inferior pot (ahem, said pot has managed to last for about ten years . . .) So not a lot has been done today!!!!!!!! As I said at the beginning of this discussion, beat that!

This is a typical male response. they decide to re organise your property and your life,and wen it goes wrong, its all your fault. but apart from screaming extremely loudly, which would scare all the neighbours and innocent passers by, or pulling all your hair out, which would HURT. or even pulling all his hair out and making him eat it, theres not a lot you can do. they fondly believe they are being very helpful and efficient. you didnt say how the plant fared, is it ok , have you managed to decant into another pot? Would superlglue help the original pot. no that wouldnt help, as i dont think superglue is all that super. all i can say is stick with it girl, revenge is a dish best served cold. hopefully some of the compost got in his underwear drawer too!!
