did i bite the hand that feeds me?
I have a bf - wonderful an absolute darling, he loves me to bits, he spoils me rotten. We are both working - when i call him and only find that he is in the middle of something - he will just say: am busy call you later (without even saying hi) fine, i respect that he is at work and he does get busy. Now today he wanted something from me and i was sitting with my boss - no he did not allow me to put the phone down and then when i eventually help him out with what he needed, he still wants to chat and complain about this and that! I just said to him : love i don' t need to hear that now, i am busy! and then he sends me a message saying: we' ll talk when you are ready to talk. i sent a message apologizing but i feel that he does not respect my work! am i wrong in saying this? did i bite the hand that feeds me! he is all cold now and i' m puzzeled!?!

I applaud anyone who responds thus to suddent interrupting calls --- when someone is at work, one should NOT call them except in the event of a serious emergency. However, he should not expect double standards to apply to his calls and not yours. Discuss this calmly with him when he's more ready to act like an adult
