Does your husband know how to do the dishes?

Mine does but sometimes I wonder. He tells me he is going to do them, then sometimes when I wake up these dirty dishes are still there. I sometimes get so aggravated with him about it. After all these years I should now better and just do them myself, but sometimes I need a break from doing it.

  • Yes, thats my husbands job. I take care of all the other housework, and he does the dishes and the yard. But sometimes he says he will do them, and they are still there as well.

  • Yea, my DH is great about things like that. I got REALLY lucky! He also cooks almost every night. I would go crazy if he didn't help me at all.

  • yeah, he knows how to do them. he does them all the time. now, putting a dish in the sink or dishwasher when he's done with them, or picking it up from the table, that must be the hardest task in the world.

  • It's not a question of whether they know how to do them but maybe you probably do a better job.

  • He helps clear the table. Will do dishes if I ask. Does them if I am not here for some reason. Now, this all took years of training!!! :)
