  • For the most part just once but sometimes 2-3 times

  • It takes until I have an annoyed conversation or squabble sometimes... He's just slow on a lot of things and I like things done immediately and early. To be fair though he does do certain things that I'm not good at and does them quickly (like watering plants and cooking dinner - seriously)

  • omg, too many to count, say I ask him to pick up his shoes, he'll do it, but I'll find two more pairs laying around the next day! Men, gotta love em though.

  • Most of the time, only once. We recently had my adult son and my husbands adult brother living with us. So it was three men and myself. sigh.... anyway, I could never get anyone to take out the garbage and it pissed me off. I think garbage is the man's job and that's it. I do the dishes, the man takes out the garbage. Anyway, I got home from work one day and the garbage was overfilled, falling onto the floor and into the cat box! I was pissed! I stormed into the front room with the three guys and said listen here - I can't believe I am the only woman in a house with three men and I have to take the garbage out!!! Well the other two guys have since moved out and I never have to ask my husband to take out the garbage, he just does it now! LOL!!!
