There comes a time in every married woman's life when she asks the age-old question, the one that wives have been asking husbands since the beginning of time, the question simply known as:
Yes, that's it. That's the usual response at the moment the husband says or does something for which the meaning is understood only by said husband and possibly other married men, or just men in general. It's what the wife asks her husband when he begins twisting her words and the meaning of those words to make it look like she's the one at fault.
Husband: I'd like to go to SAMS Club sometime to pick up supplies we need to prepare for Hurricane Season.
Wife: Ok no problem, we need to save up the money though because it will cost us (wife knows that shopping at SAMS club causes men to have uncontrollable urges to buy large packages of items not on the list)
Husband: Ok when can I go?
Wife: How about the end of May? That should do it.
Two months later, when May has arrived.
Husband: Here's my list of supplies I want to get this weekend.
Wife: Ok, the list looks great. Now I have an idea, why not get toiletries and little things at the Dollar General Store and save SAMS club for the water and food items. And oh yeah, why not buy these things a bit at a time instead of one trip? Instead of taking $250-300 out of savings at once, why not prioritize the items and buy them in a few trips? (wife knows that prioritizing the most urgent items first will ensure they are purchased first and doing the shopping in increments assures that the husband won't get out of control in his spending. This of course is explained to the husband in detail via email back and forth at work)
Husband: Screw it, we don't need to prepare, we'll just wait till something happens. You always do this, you tell me I can do something and then you take it back. You said you were putting away the $$ to do this and now you didn't.
Wife: Uh yes we need to prepare, and yes I did put the money away but why take it all out when you can do it in increments and do it right.
Husband bitches that wife is always changing her mind, wife bitches to husband that every time she has an idea or opinion different from his, he just decides to say "screw it". Wife tells husband he's an "all or nothing" guy meaning that either it has to be his way and all at once or not at all.
Husband finally tells wife she can start making all the household and life decisions, he's not going to even bother anymore.
Wife says---- WTF?
Now many women would love making all the decisions but really that's just not for this wife. It's too much responsibility. Why should she be stuck with the burden of making all the decisions? Oh hell no! The husband is going to suffer along with his wife or else.
Now the wife isn't entirely guilt-free here, yes she does change her mind at times but you know what? It's just the way it is. Women have changed their minds since the beginning of time, much longer than men have been shopping at wholesale clubs. Other than changing her mind every now and then I think the wife is pretty damn easygoing, don't ya think? Hmm...
The conversation between the husband and wife of course doesn't end there. It leads to another hour's worth of WTF moments........many, many, many of them.
Frankly I'm all WTF'd out, all I can manage now is just a simple little "Oy vey" and we won't even get started on that one!
