My husband and I have been married nearly two years and together for 3, and EVERY TIME I buy some vodka for myself he drinks it without replacing it, and I only get to drink MAYBE 2-3 shots worth of a 750ml bottle before the rest is gone within a week.
I’ve asked and told him REPEATEDLY not to touch my vodka, because it’s rare that I get the chance to buy some, so when I occasionally get the money, I like to treat myself and make it last. He doesn’t listen despite numerous conversations and fights about it.
Important to note, neither of us drink heavily, we usually only have 1 drink a night if that, but he does go through liquor quickly.
I buy the 750ml bottles knowing full well that if he would leave it alone like I ask of him, that the bottle would last me around 6 months.
However, I bought a bottle 2 weeks ago and came home less than a week later to find it gone when I should have still had 2/3 of the bottle left. I made it ABUNDANTLY clear to him, several times, that he was NOT to touch it under ANY circumstances unless I gave him explicit permission and even then it was a 2 shot limit, but it did nothing.
I bought a fridge lock on Amazon, which I installed before putting my brand new bottle in the freezer. Now he’s mad that he can’t get into the freezer at will and is saying I’m treating him like a child by locking him out completely when I could simply ask him nicely not to touch my stuff.
