Yesterday, dh, ds, and I went to get coffee. While standing in line a pregnant woman came up to me to ask about what i was wearing (It's what i sell) any way dh started ordering and i quickly said 'could you order me a mocha' cuz I knew if I turned away I might loose my potetial buyer. Dh says 'Why don't you order it yourself'. So of course as soon as i turned to order she walked away. I really felt pissed. Why couldn't he have just ordered for me??? I gave her my card but i didn't really get to tell her why she should order my particular product. Is this no big deal or do i have a right to feel like that was a crappy and unsupportive thing to do?<br><br>
he also could have waited to order until i was done talking too, i think.

Aside from being unsupportive in relation to your business, sounds like it was just downright rude even if you two <i>were</i> "just chatting". I'm sorry you had that happen!

That is pretty darn rude no matter how one looks at it. I'd be giving an earful to dh if it were me!

I agree that there was no excuse for his behavior. You made it clear that you wanted him to order for you, and you told him what you wanted. It didn't matter why you didn't want to order and it wouldn't have hurt him to do it for you. I'd have given him an earful, too.
