Why do people not pay attention when you are saying something?

The hubby decided to just ignore a suggestion I told him about going to my former HS JROTC military ball. I mean, it would be something great to do before he leaves and he said he doesn’t want to. Especially since he wanted to skip his former unit’s ball because he didn’t want to stay an extra day, what an excuse. We didn’t even leave that day, so he lost a day of his leave anyway. Pfft. Actually he wasn’t paying attention to me at all because he wanted to hear the stupid political people talk about the State of the Union. Really??!! You could have just paused it instead of ignoring and not paying attention to anything I’m saying. And I just asked him to turn it down and he didn’t even do that! He’s so worried about the politics and everything, I’m not because I actually don’t really care because my state doesn’t have much political mess like his home state. I refuse to talk about politics and that’s what irritates me. He is so focused on the problems of politics he doesn’t do anything about it. He’s all talk and no action. He listens to so many political shows I’ve just tuned it out. I leave the room because it irritates me. We can’t even have a decent dinner without politics being on. He doesn’t pay attention to what I’m saying because he’s so focused on that.
That’s why I took his laptop off the dinner table last night. I’m so sick of it. So very sick of it. Dinner is suppose to be so we can talk not so we can hear the sorrows of politics.
I don’t have much time with him left and he just decides to brush my suggestion aside. šŸ™ I’m irritated and close to wanting to break his stupid laptop!!
I’m crying right now because this irritates me and makes me mad. I get you are so concerned about the political world but let it go when you are at home eating dinner with me! I won’t always be with you so you won’t know much of anything if you don’t pay attention to what I’m saying.
I get that it’s the State of the Union but it doesn’t interest me. I can hear it another time. And he still hasn’t turned it down. So much for asking.
