While We On The Subject of Husband Bashing....

  1. I'm going out for the evening.

    I've got clothes in the dryer and sheets in the washer. Dryer is set to alarm when done, so sheets can go in.

    Five hours later I return to wet sheets. Can't go to bed until sheets are done. I'm tired. Also laundry that was in the dryer ahead of the sheets are piled up on the kitchen table.

    Dear man "opps, I forgot, I've been busy writing my paper for school. " Then tells me about the Will & Grace and Sopranoes episodes he just watched.

    I guess I have "laundry maid" in addition to other chores. You work you fingers to the bone....

    Thanks I feel better.

    I feel your pain. What is so difficult about noticing that a chore needs to be done, ya know, for the good of the household?

    Like, exactly how much crap has to be on the carpet before you can no longer tell what color it is and there is crunching under your feet? What would be a proper stimulus for a man to say, "Gee, perhaps I shoud run the sweeper."

    How many water spots, toothpaste splashes, and days of hairspray and product residue must build up on the bathroom mirror before they take 45 seconds out of azz scratching and channel surfing to bust out a bottle of Windex?

    Exactly how many days worth of wardrobe are men comfortable stepping over to crawl into bed? Is there a certain number? Again, do they have some sort of aversion to the way the carpet looks uncluttered?

    What do men think happens to certain foods when they are allowed to sit, unrinsed, for days in the sink? (because let's face it - when are they gonna do the dishes?) Are they not familiar with the term "petrified?"

    And crumbs on the counter. Really. I think this is only an attempt to prove that you've done something for yourselves. "Yes! Look at me! I made myself a peanut butter and jelly! Whippee!"

    I think the term "yourselves" sums up this thread perfectly. When do they do anything for the FAMILY or LOVING WIFE? I love to come home to congealed Miracle Whip on the cupboard from him making his sandwich. And no, I don't make him his lunch. I have a life, thank you very much!

    Another? Kool-Aid on the counter!! Red Kool-Aid on my white counter tops!!!

    My mom's given up trying to get my dad to pick up--his socks. He puts anything else in the hamper or hangs it up, but leaves his socks next to the bed in a little pile? I just wouldn' t pick them up and wash them...but he does good with other things around the house so she's stopped yelling about the sock heap

    3rd shift--it waaaas Sopranos season finale-he couldn't miss that kidding of course-who can't fold and watch TV at the same time!?

    Well, if they have that icontrol with their cable package, he could have watched Sopranos any time he wanted. Not to mention, HBO isn't just going to play the season finale one time only.

    What bothers me most at home is the ******* toilet paper roll. I've tried leaving the empty one so he'll get the point. We ended up with three cardboard TP holders (lying on the back of the toilet) before I gave up and changed the stupid paper myself.
    He's getting better with crumbs on the kitchen counter, but needs reminding occas.....he doesn't use a plate or paper towel when making a sandwich, like a civilized person would.

    THANK YOU!

    Do they enjoy wiping their arses with something that's been sitting on thh bathroom floor? Do they see the microbial angle of this matter?

    And speaking of the bathroom. Wet towels, balled up and thrown into a corner somewhere. Yummy....

    Ugh!
