Does your husband bother to empty all the garbage cans when he takes the trash out?

Mine doesn't and it makes me bonkers. Not only do I fill the kitchen garbage with the nursery and bathroom garbages before taking it out just any day, I especially make sure the night before garbage day to get EVERY garbage including the diaper genie. He usually just takes the cans from the backyard to the curb even when the kitchen garbage is to ready to go it's not funny. Lazy or clueless???

  • Your question assumes that my SO takes the trash out in the first place. =) I take it out most of the time so it's all on me!

  • Most likely clueless.

    My hubby will do it if I specifically tell him to do it. Otherwise, he's completely oblivious to the fact that there are other trash cans in the house. Men! We actually had a big debacle just a few weeks ago because he forgot the diaper pail trash when he made the house rounds (after I'd asked him) and I didn't know. We started potty training and stopped using it and the disgusting diapers were just sitting there for TWO WEEKS. It was NOT a pretty discovery, let me tell you. Blech!

  • No he doesn't unless I hound him about it. It really gets on my nerves. He will take out the kitchen trash but not the bathroom trash or the diaper trash. I usually end up doing it most of the time. This is the only thing he has to do around the house and does it half a**. I do the yard work and do it all the way. I don't do it half a**. Sorry about the rant.

  • My husband goes around and pick up ALL the trash especially the ngiht before trash day. He even goes in my van and gets the trash from in there if there is any.

  • Mine usually doesnt bother to empty all the cans in the cans in the house..he just takes the ones from the backyard out to the front on garbage day. I am the one that gathers all the garbage togeter and bag it up and I'll give it to him and he'll take it out to the cans for me though. I guess it used to kinda get on my nerves but I'm over it, lol. At least I don't have to drag thos heavy cans out front..I guess we made a silent compromise.

  • Clueless. We only have two trash cans, the kitchen and bathroom, and yet he NEVER gets the bathroom trash. I will usually just dump it into the kitchen trash. I let him think he's the master trash taker-outer.

  • My husband does actually. We have to buy special bags that are supposedly biodegradable in our city, so we make sure to use every inch of that bag. He takes every trash and stuffs it in to make sure we're not wasting bags.

  • Yes he does ..
