Hell trip 2 Annecy and back
So the idea arose in me to accompany H if he was taking BP (BeePee - as I call the car)
I haven't had a vacation for over 10 years with the exception of the weekend in Barcelona where I got robbed immediately getting off the bus from the airport :( and some stray days occasionally.
So yes, he would be taking the BP Thursday morning. By intuition I asked if he was going on his own… He became avoidingly irritated and unwillingly muttered:
- Who will accompany you?
- The one doing my work at the main office.
And then it sprung that he was going with this
I felt humiliated by him darkening the circumstances but maintained my wish for a break from my mundane life in the chalet although I knew he'd make me "pay" and that he would make a misinterpretation, projecting his bachelor behavior on me as something natural, comme il faut and guilt ride me, label me jealous.
I told him I wanted to take the trip down with him. (Strange isn't it, FIVE times I visited Lucifer, my mother-in-law at a kind of rehab in Saint Jean-d'Aulps with him. Jesus Christ, the stench of pooh. I'm obviously good to be used for the boring stuff…) H claimed it was work, (taking BP…) everything was paid for by the company… I said I would take care of myself as always (not once in 12 years has H planned or surprised me by a trip, being flexible or genuinely glad to share experiences. I always get a kind of "tag along if you have to but I'd prefer to take things in on my own") and I marked that I only was interested in the lift trying to sooth his malice.
I had cleared by the tourist office the weather forecast, how to transport myself, what was on in Annecy and prepared for a day on MY OWN 9am-5pm. Well, finally I showed some spunk. As we say in Sweden "you can only spit on a stone until it gets wet". I declared I was capable of taking care of myself as I always have had to with H and that I only considered it getting a lift.
I got a deep moan and a sarcastic: "Suit yourself I personally don't care what you do". "You are on your own as soon as we get there. "
We collected Toada, nearby H's martial arts training, looking like a misplaced
Then Toada opened the door, entered the backseat behind me bringing with her a sickening suffocating odor of faded eau de toilette and having an infectious cough showering me from time to time. (I had to disinfected the handles and back seats of BP afterwards.)
After 45 minutes I asked for a short stop to pee. H said he also needed to go and stopped at the next rest place. Toada rushed ahead of us to the toilets inside. I who came after her noticed to my disgust that she didn't even wash her hands afterwards when she fastly headed for H to be able to talk with me not present. I do have issues with neglected hygiene and filthy odors. Grown ups ought to keep clean.
Close to Annecy H was supposed to take route 117 but T said no, no so he stayed on the high way! H always print a road map from the internet and we had both checked it. So I knew it was 117. Toada's word was law though and guess what… she was totally wrong. If it would have been me, I would have been ignored and mocked making a mistake. A huge detour later H more or less apologized being the one NOT taking the wrong route, stating he normally does and it could as well have been him… Come on! She is a dumb ass, and so what! The folly of blind men.
Reaching the parking the car was hot in the sun. The pain in my back was increasing. Five o'clock came no H. Six o'clock no one and the parking was emptying out. Quarter past, knock on the window - H.
Explanation: The technic/WiFi didn't work but for the teacher at the course so no practical experience of FaceBook was given. 9-12am 14-18pm - seven hours of notes… Strange going on OVER hours in such circumstances… Knowing H though I doubt he wrote more than some papers in Toada's company. H said he had checked my blog being early back from a break and seen I was at the library. Then it came; "Are you annoyed!" (No, in pain, but I said nothing. I only wanted to lay down, to puke as I felt as I had a fever speeding and focusing on not to vomit was taking over my concentration.) I calmly stated: "You said 5 pm" and then H yelled: "What could I do?", "It's not my fault!!!" Still no Toada. 20 minutes past. H went out of the car checking for T. Suddenly "it" arrived at the parking WITH make up and its hair up! Claimed to got lost in the restroom?! Okay… that's brains for you and consideration of others. Taking your time doing make up, keep others waiting… (And with H's history of convenient plain females naturally awakens a tiny doubt, plants a remote seed if I had a suspicious mind ;): Were they fully attending at all… Why were they the last ones out of there? H's over reactions tap dance my braincells.)
We roll out of the parking. H back to the French language only speaking to T again but I who feel like throwing up any second need some cold air and ask him to put the air conditioner on cold. "No", he says. "You can't put it on?" I wonder. "No, I don't want to" and he ignores me and continues talking to Toada, who over my head asks him in French what F, my name, has done today. H answers that apparently she found a bus… That was it, my limit was reached! Stupid, no manners... I had enough. I told H it is VERY impolite to talk about me in third person when I'm there. The normal thing is to adress me personally. H scoffed that T doesn't speak English. Then Toada either ask you to ask me or you don't talk about me. H laughs me right in my face and says I'm ridiculous.
They go on talking and we reaching our hometown deliver Toada. H tells T in French that he will dream about "WiFi", ha, ha, ha… tonight… and fall asleep immediately without eating. Toada roams: "Ha, ha, ha, me too, ha, ha, ha…" Well, well, well. I'm definitely not a member of their intimate sect and wouldn't sign in even if I was paid.
When T had left. I ask H to drive me to the dvd rental. I told him I hurt my back and the pain was making me sick so I needed some distraction tomorrow if the tarot line was low. I continued that next time I'd be pleased if H could put down the heat when I ask him to. He said he wouldn't if I didn't give an explanation first. Considerate isn't it? Guess next time I just puke all over him. I was tired, in pain and called my daughter still in the car. H loudly heckled & ridiculed me and what I told her, laught rudely mimicking and sneering.
Oh, yes one last thing H did say he could take my bag with the computer out of the car when we arrived home. I declined, though. He ate, watched TV and went to bed after 11pm while I didn't eat, put some Voltaren cream on my back and worked until midnight.
Sadly, he won he succeeded to make it a hell trip.
