g/f is a shift worker so should be sleeping now. Had a pain of a journey home, two tubes lines closed because of fire alerts, took the son''s dog to the vet, did the washing up and cooked the kids dinner and missed a sodding text from g/f because she can''t sleep and wants to chat.
Do I tell her bluntly if she can''t be more reasonable then we are going nowhere or should I put up with being being in the dog house because shock horror when she should be sleeping my kids want their dinner.

Hi James,

Are you saying she was miffed because you didn''t respond to her text?

If so, best thing to do is say to her if she contacts you between X time and x time the kids will be available to speak.

Chasing around after kids and getting things done is hectic, she has to understand that. Maybe she felt you were ignoring her on purpose, so she lashed out?

Not acceptable, I know, but if you understand where each other are coming from it may make an agreement easier to reach.

No she wanted to chat with me becuase she couldn''t sleep but because I missed the text she is miffed.
I get this from time to time. My journey home is in tunnel for 30 to 35 minutes but trying to explain microwaves don''t work underground is pointless so I get it in the neck because I didn''t instantly repsond to her.
I am getting a bad feeling about this woman.

Ahhhhhh - she''s your current g/f not the ex - sorry :blush:

Is she normally unreasonable or could she be cranky through lack of sleep?

I don''t know. She couldn''t sleep then was trying to get her internet to work then sent me a text and didn''t get a response.
Deep down I think she ia bit insecure. But she should know that at this time I am going to be busy so not unreasonable that I would not see a text or hear the mobile ring.

Think about red flags. This feels like one. With a girlfriend it should be fun. If it isn''t fun then move on.
