    Well Guys, having successfully (and rather graciously, I feel) allowed my Missus to re-decorate the bathroom over the last few days, I was stirred into thought, and felt I had to make a post here.

    So - what does your Other Half do that really annoys you ?

    My answer (well, my first) is - using your tools then putting them back in the toolkit ALL WRONG !!!!!! :x


    Please - add your thoughts and comments Guys. I expect this may go one of two ways, but it's all tongue-in-cheek (I hope - would be damn embarassing for the Admin to have to close his own thread :oops: )

    She also has a tendency to say the same thing, three different ways, one after another. I understood you the first time! i dont need it saying repeatedly.

    Well, in the past 16 years of being with my wife, I've learned (the hard way) of how to get the last 4 words of EVERY argument:

















































    "Yes dear, you're right."

    Well, I can help you with this one.

    I married a woman so much better looking than I am I've always wondered why she married me. Anyway, about a couple of times a month I'll interrupt her when she's talking to me and tell how beautiful she is. She'll always say, "Like this?" meaning how she's dressed at the moment, and I'll tell her yes. Then when she asks me how she looks in something I just tell her, "Honey, you know I have terrible fashion sense and I'm the worst person in the world to ask." She already knows I think she's beautiful because I tell her that often, and so when it comes to clothes I can squeak by.

    Well, maybe it is because I have no fashion sense, and she knows it.... :biggrin

    If i don't decorate quickly enough ie she asks and its not done in 5 mins she decide's to do it when iam at work

    This usually means i have to bin any paintbrushes, trays, etc and then clean the paint of the other walls in the house that she managed to cover "accidentally" :biggrin

    :blink :biggrin :blink

    These are all incredibly classic. Looks like women are the same the world round. BTW Freddy, you could make your "statement" right after the missus steps out of the shower. No "fashion sense" involved there, bud.

    I am *so* going to be punished for that one. :tongue

    Yeah, I could, and do, but if it's done when she's wearing the clothes she uses when she works around the house then I can squeak by on evasion when she asks if she asks the dreaded, no win question. If I see her as beautiful then just how am I ever going to see her looking fat, no matter what she's wearing? I can just say my fashion sense is bad, which it is, and I'm off the hook. And I have a happy wife.

    If i had to place an answer on this topic..I would have to use a diff name incase she finds out....because they are sneaky and know your every move.....

    Also everyone knows when you get married you become deaf.....and to really annoy them you just agree with them...because they will forget what they were asking/talking about.

    sssshhhhhhh!!!! I was never here.....
