He's been telling me he's going to build me planter boxes to grow veg in for going on five years. He has the wood. Yesterday I brought four on sale and he's mad because he going to build them. Yeah?? When?

Another thing is he told me he was going to put up the fence so our dogs won't get into the garden area and my tropical fish breeding ponds and he still hasn't done it two years later so I had my teen and I worked on it and I got a male friend to help me and he's having a sulk because I made him look bad in front of others. But you have had the fencing for two years why is't it done.

I just wish when I ask him to help with something he would just say.... No I have no intention of ever helping you do that. And I can ask someone else to help me.  Yes I ask him every weekend and its nagging apparently yet when I ask my dad or male friends to help I make him look bad. Get off your butt and help me... its too heavy for me to do alone because it has to be done with pool fencing because of the ponds. Which means I can't have my ponds till the fence is up meanwhile all my breeding is done inside the house.

Just hire someone. Tell him you're tired of waiting on his lazy ass. Also tell him he's making himself look bad!

not really I fix 99% of the stuff. But ugh.... he has a hissy when I get people into help. I had a half an hour arguement with him yesterday to help me break some concrete and it only took him two minutes to do when he got off his fat ass and did it. My teen helps with most stuff.

Yip and he doesn't like my business partner who comes and helps me with anything heavy and build stuff we need for our fish business. As I said, Well I wouldn't have to ask him if you helped me. We need stuff done to sell and expand, and he just barely helps. He always says hes going to help and he doesn't then my business partner comes while hes at work and we do it together and he gets all defensive that 'he was going to do it' ... yeah... when.

Tell him how much it will cost to have them built and they are starting the next day. He should change his tune real quick.

my dh learned real quick I don't ask for him to do shit for me because I'll do it myself

my father taught his daughters never to rely on a man

however in your case he's a dick

tell him to get the hell off his ass and help you out and he wouldn't look so bad in front of whomever.

I start those projects myself. Then when I get to a point where I need another pair of hands, I just tell him what I need done. He's good at helping around the house, but not starting/planning the projects. He does planning stuff all day at work so when he's home, he's happy to just take direction.

I grew up with a father that could tackle and do just about any task. My husband however is not, at all, handy. It took some adjustment on my part but it just isn't that big of a deal. I have a husband I love dearly and who loves me. He worked hard his whole adult life for our benefit as a family so while the people I have hired take care of whatever needs doing I enjoy being with my husband...lol.
