...that there's this chip embedded in men that totally and completely makes them oblivious to certain things. After talking to the RedQueen the other day I am fairly certain of it. It's either a chip inserted by their mothers to make sure that for the rest of their adults lives, their sons drive mad the women they marry OR it's in their DNA, which is just plain scary.
And can I say that loading the dishwasher and turning the dial to "start" and doing the laundry do not make up for the bad behavior LOL!
I can't recall which day it was exactly that I ranted on about DH dragging dirt into the house on his shoes and then conveniently not seeing it and then once realizing it did not volunteer to clean it up either. But why clean it up when I'm there? After all, I'm already pre-programmed to go from Zero to vacuum in less than 2.5 seconds. I can whip that baby out and clean up 1550 SF of carpet in record time.
But...I'm telling you that thing in their head that says--or is supposed to scream "red alert! red alert! you have done this before and you are about to do it again and if you do your wife is going to be really pissed off" alarm just didn't go off! And so it was at least three times in one day, in about a 2 hour period that I took out the Hoover Windtunnel and vacuumed the entire house starting at the back door (surprise!). I mean how do you think that trail of dirt got into the house? The cats didn't open the back door and soil their little paws and drag it all through the house.
And I sure as hell didn't do it.
And while we're on the subject---bringing home strawberry ice cream doesn't make up for it either especially when I uh---insisted there should be NO dessert in the house while I---er--we are trying to lose weight.
I still do not get what is so difficult about the shoe wiping thing. And the darndest thing is that there are many times he really is sorry for doing it, he thinks he cleaned his shoes off but well, he missed some. And he's so truly sorry for it, how can you beat the crap out of him? I mean when he puts that cute face on it's like "oh shit, he looks so pathetic" and you just don't want to harm him LOL .
