Ask a man to do one little thing!! Honestly.
All I asked was for him to hang a set of blinds. So, that I could blog without the sun scorching the eyeballs out of my head. Really, is that too much to ask? It would have taken 15 minutes; tops.
Would you like to hear the litnany of excuses I received? In a very aggrieved tone I might add.
I'm in the middle of cooking dinner (oh really? Hmmm, seems to me all the prep work has already been done and it's in the oven.....)
I have to pick up Man-Child (hmmm, at the time you still had 45 minutes before you had to leave....)
I need to clean the kitchen (odd; that's Man-Child's job)
Give me a break. I said fine, whatever and walked away. TWO MINUTES LATER, I notice him sitting in the living room watching tv!!! Are you freakin' kiddin' me??
Apparently, I'm only allowed to ask for things to be done on the weekend WHEN there isn't a game on.
Now generally, when Hubby asks me to do something for him (unless it's before I've had my coffee) I try to do it then. Why? Because I'm considerate that way (and I don't want to forget about it ten minutes later).
He does this all the time. Drives me absolutely bananas.
Whenever I ask for something he acts like he is THE only person in the house who does ANYTHING. Please. He cooks. Yes, for this I am eternally grateful (but that is only because he likes to eat and not be poisoned). He helps out around the house - yes, I'm grateful for this too. But come on, who does the bulk of the housework? The cleaning, the driving MC around, the never-ending, freakin' LAUNDRY??????????
