Do you "move" things by yourself?

Not just furniture...but say your box of decorations for whatever holidays you decorate for?
My friend said "I can't decorate for easter cuz HE won't bring the boxes down" - they have a walkup attic - since I was there I offered to get them so we trudge upstairs to retrieve ONE FREAKIN BOX with a plaque - 2 ceramic bunnies - 1 stuffed bunny and a small basket with plastic eggs in it!
SERIOUSLY???? She got pissed when I said "why couldn't you jusst do this" He response was "I am sorry you don't have YOUR husband in check" I don't wait on anything nor expect anyone to do anything FOR me that I feel I can handle on my own. I move furniture, climb a ladder to my attic to bring BOXES down.
Do you do your own "work" or wait on "hubby" whom you have "in check"

  • I ask once, maybe twice if nothing happens I quickly take action and do it myself.

  • Honey, I do my own work. Nothing in this family would ever be accomplished if I didnt do things myself!

  • I usually did it all myself, but now that I have two little ones that need to be watched constantly, I ask my husband. I can't turn my back for one second . . .

    Either that or I wait until late night when everyone is asleep and all my chores are done.

  • Lmao, if I waited for him to do things I would still be pregnant waiting for him to drive me to the hospital for my first OB appointment

  • My hubs will move things if I ask him and if he feels like it (although sometimes he says yeah, he will but then does not get at it in a timely manner and I have to wait). If I want it done ASAP then I usually do it myself cause I get sick of waiting on him.

  • LOL
    I have my honey trained very well.... but in better ways than that!
    I do my own work, move furniture or what have you if he's not around. If he's around, he's jumping in to help.

  • Ha ha what? If I'm capable of doing something myself, I'll do it.

  • wow - she is lazy.

    I do everything myself unless it is physically impossible for me to do. There are times when i need DH's help. But...uhh...taking a box out of the attic? WOW, that is extreme laziness if you ask me...
