Being taken advantage of or am I overreacting?

I offered to send my husband over to drive my brother and sis in law home. They just delivered a baby..now I have a lil baby too and since I had to go to work my husband took along my baby and what was supposed to be a few hours job turned out to be a whole day out for my husband and baby. To make things worse, I had to wait for my husband for over 6 hours as he had the only key to the house. And I am pregnant and starving too.. So my question is, couldnt have someone said they would manage and get back on their own when the hours were just going by, or at least when they knew I was stranded and waiting..yeah when everyone had to take a diversion to pick me up no one liked it, I had such grumpy faces to deal with. Of course I was grumpy too and didnt try to hide it. But I was the offended one! I never even heard an apology. I was so mad but kept quiet cos I didnt want to make the homecoming an unpleasant event...am I being inconsiderate or is this too much??

I think you are not bad but he also dint expect that he will get late, if you dont have the spare key and should keep that key to such a place from where both you and your hubby can find out when both are out and gone to different places as I generally do the same ting as we are not having any spare key but we put the key in some hidden place from where we can take out the key.

thats a good idea and we used to do it earlier, but somehow i am scared of leaving it around esp since we stay in a kinda lonely area..but i have a spare now :)

You should have a spare key my dear, because you don't know what happened along the way and yes, as you have said, you did not expect your hubby to be so late so it is still wise to keep a spare key for yourself. I understand your situation being pregnant and all, you will really feel the hormones rising up and being angry easily but anyway good to hear you have kept your peace to settle the matter better. Anyway, hope this scenario won't happen again. It is really difficult to wait specially on your condition, so get yourself a key.

i totally have the spare key now. that is the first thing i fixed after that day. but the way people can be inconsiderate and make you take precautions for every little thing again and again makes me so angry!

I think it's fine how you reacted. And you're pregnant so you have to be taken care of too. I suggest to duplicate the key so the next time this happens, you won't be stranded again.
