What is the deal with husbands and taking out the trash?

Does anyone's husband actually take it out before it piles up and you have to ask him to?

  • I ask him too, but i dont care that i have to ask. its not a big deal, and he normally does it when i ask. if he doesnt then i just do it. he is so good about helping me around the house, and on the weekends he lets me sleep in while he gets up with the kids so i have no room to complain about trash ya know.

  • LOL!!! Not mine!! I have to ask and then make up another bag...usually a paper one (like you get at the grocery store). Then he gets mad that I started a new bag. Gotta love them though!!

  • i quit asking...i started doing it myself..but with a little bit of attitude because i get tired of him letting it pile over. He knows that when i take it i'm pissed

  • ...i think he lets it pile up just to test me to see if i will do it. I know its a f*cked up way to think but i just know he does it

  • I pull the bag out of the can and leave it in front of the door so he can't get in or out without taking it.

  • lol yea i went through that battle for like 5 months after we were married..we only been married for 7, lol. I would get pissed off if I had to take it out because we live in a complex and you have to walk over to the dump..but alot of times b4 he actually got it I had to do it...i tried the leaving it in front of the door thing..which actually works, lol...but they can be like puppies you have to train them to do everything, lol, sad but true

  • I have always taken out the trash, it is not that big of a deal and so not worth fighting over.

  • I always ask him to do it which is fine with me and he never has a problem with it.
