Pieces n Parts

  1. Ok, my first "Poll"

    I just spent 5 hours "helping" my husband put together his new computer desk. It's one of those amoire type thingys.
    Here's the thing, we got it from some friends, and it was already partially together.........so WHY 5 hours????

    Heehee, I HATE putting things together with him, he has NO patience at all.
    So, when you buy items with "assembly required", who puts them together?

    It's just me and the kiddo here, so I put everything together, from computer desks, to toys (ugh!), to bookcases.... me, me, and me again.

    Oh great, now theres snot on my laptop.

    *We* assemble things together...and he reads the directions first. My part generally involves sitting on the floor watching him and occasionally handing him a tool or a part.

    Hubby does it because, you know, he just knows how.

    I just lay in bed and drink wine and listen to the obscenities flow.....
