Honey-Do

I got off work earlier than normal.

I get home, no Wife, no Kid, I call. "We're out getting Christmas stuff." she says. I think to myself,

"Sweet, Christmas stuff." but then the dreaded change in tone,

"We're going to be out most of the day, since you're home, can you go ahead and clean the bathtubs?". Arghh, now what, this isn't like in person where I can just say, "what", and then continue on with whatever I was doing. This is the phone the entire point of the thing is to listen. I feel trapped. I pause, long enough for her to argue with silence, "Don't say what, you promised you'd do it.". Dang, when did I promise this? Think. Think. Ah nothing, but I can't tell her I don't remember, or even call her out on it thinking she was bluffing, if I did promise, forgetting that promise is substantially worse than taking back the promise I may or may not have made. Silence. "OK, love you thanks, got to go, I'm in line." click.

I'm scrubbing bathtubs now.

Anyone else have the Honey-Do issue, and what do you have to do?

Ladies, what are you making you husband do when he gets home? If it's scrubbing bathtubs, don't make him, it's terrible.

and I know...

Personally, I have a pair. Though this could be why most my relationships don't last all that long.

Well, heres my take on the situation. Austin, upon entering the house and seeing the bathtubs not scrubbed, should of called his wife and asked "Why are the bath tubs not scrubbed, where are you and where's my supper?"


...and I really love the soothing sound of tiny violins

Although it's insulting, I'm leaving it and asking a question. How long have you been married? How many kids do you have?

What would your wife do if you said that to her?

Well...I'd be on here...as soon as I got out of the emergency room, the swelling went down under my eye so I could see the key board...and of course after I finished the sensitivity training

I tried working smarter not harder once and ended up dieing the tubs a tinge of blue from leaving the stuff on it for three hours.
