what to do ?

J does not all that often bring home surprise presents. He brings me flowers when we're fighting, apparently so we can both watch them die as I let them rot in their cellophane. (he always buys me the wrong kind of flowers) But random gifts of clothing? Not so much.

So when he brought home a coat, of all things, for me, I thought either:

1) He's screwing his secretary.

2) He's gone soft in the head.

3) He was walking by the store, thought, Coffee would like that jacket, and since she is still wearing mine....and just F*BEEP*-ing bought it.

Now, in the case of 1), I'd have to say that a coat is a very poor distraction tactic. And aren't expensive blingy items more traditional? But then, J doesn't have a secretary.

However, I must rule out 2) because J's head was soft when I got him. (no improvement there yet)

And 3) seems equally unlikely since he does have a penis, and that's just not what men do.

So I keep coming back to the shagging-someone-else theory because it makes the most sense. However, all of this seems irrelevant when considering the fact that this coat is ugly.
Ugly ugly ugly....I hate it.

I mean, it's kind of puffy, and really short, and it has snaps, for fuck's sake. Snaps. It doesn't do anything for me and yes it does make me fat. I know this without asking J or looking into the mirror.

So what do I do?

Do I tell him that this is the ugliest F*BEEP*-ing coat that I have ever laid my pretty eyes on, or do I smile politely and stow it way far back in the closet and hope he forgets about it?


Oh who am I kidding? Of course I'm going to tell him it's ugly. If I don't return it, I'll just end up donating it to some charity completely unworn in a year or two, and I wouldn't wish that thing on even the coldest, poorest person in the city. Plus, I'm just not that considerate of his feelings.

On the plus side, he also bought me a shirt that my tits look really great in....

hmmmmmm, he must be up to something after all.

NOOOOO... don't trust him to buy lingerie... look what a mess he made of a rather more simple item like a coat... I think the shirt was a fluke... lingerie is an art...
as for seeing someone.... if I did that I'd never buy my partner anyting...gives the game away.... I'd go for he's got even more soft in the head

Is your J still not able to figure out the right cloths for you ?
Or did he have the wrong perspective/dimensions of other female types in his mind when he bought it ?
A snappie front ? Do they bite ?

I agree with TeaNoMilk, lingerie is a far better option.

You have to remember that most guys can't dress them selfs so they have no idea what looks good and what dosen't.

Don't be to hard on him. He's just a man.

just ask him where you got it and exchange for something you like,
Hubby has given up buying me clothes as i just hate what he buys,he sticks with safe stuff perfume or perfume and if i really like something i will go in the shops and tell them to show hubby a particular item and send him there,.

Puffa coats make everyone look fat
