My friend and I were having a playdate with her daughter and my son. She started complaining about not being able to attend the chancellor's banquet with her husband because she didn't have anyone to watch the baby. Being her friend, of course I offered to babysit. She said "no, I don't want to leave her."
I said ok and held my tounge, but I hate it when people whine to me, but don't want me to try and help!!
I told my dh this story and he laughed and said "This is how most men feel ALL THE TIME!"
