Is domestic work THAT confusing??

I'm curious, because my husband is smart, but when it comes to doing some housework...I don't know what happens to instead of washing a whole load of laundrey he takes his ONE pair of pants that has a stain and puts it in the washer fills it all the way up for the one pair?? Call me conspiracy paranoid but I think he PURPOSLY does a crap job so he's not asked to again...oh BTW I didn't ask him to do that laundrey

  • LMAO! awww that's kinda cute though. It's not just men though, I can run a business, been in school for 6 yrs, but when it comes to domestic crap, all I can say is UGH! Some people aren't cut out for the domestic duties and that's why they have merry maids. :)

  • I think they do it so we think they don't know how. I know I do that to him sometimes with things I could fix/do if I really want/need to. I've discovered that the whole blonde thing is awesome. If they think you can't possibly live without them (your big strapping man!) it makes them feel so good and needed. Maybe in a whacked out way they're doing the same thing to us, making us think they couldn't manage without us.
