ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

Stop me if you've heard this one


Mrs Mullet: "Chuck, honey, could you please do some dishes?"

Chuck: "I did."

It looks to me like he did A dish.
Gotta love men...

That's one more than my husband does.

I LOVE that you have a french press. We do too. My husband doesn't wash that either. Even though I don't drink coffee.

STOP! I've heard it. In fact, just the other day {Monday to be exact.} I called my Hubby and asked if he would wash dishes...he said he would. I then called back an hour or so later and asked had he done them. He said he had, but had left some for me to wash because he sat it in the floor and forgot about it.

You sat it in the floor???
He said he ran out of counter space.
{There's at least 15ft of counter space...)

The one good thing about having older stepkids...when I ask my husband to do the dishes, he delegates to them. We're raising future executives here.

Life As I Know It said...

yeah, that's sounds familiar...

Yep..what is it with the masculine counterparts? I'm just glad I can get mine to cook for me on the weekends, he's great at that. Then...I get my son to clean up.

Bonus!

Thought this was a cute post, found you by way of The Humor Smith. Funny stuff, you'll be on my blogroll as well.

PB: I did dishes.
MB: With what? We're out of sponges.
PB: I soaked them and then rinsed them.
MB: Soaking a day old milk sippy cup does not make it clean. Nice try, though.

Yeah, I've heard that one.

Nice rack!

I just got done with doing them his "job" was to unload. Ah, yeah.

I am virtually strangling him for you.

What does he do if you ask him to wash "some" underwear?

I made a new rule this year that whoever cooks dinner, the other one has to clean up the kitchen (instead of me doing both, even though I get home from work 2 hours after him). There's been a pretty intense (though passive-aggressive) campaign to overturn the rule. Tonight I cleaned the kitchen after eating one of those meals with rice, which, for some reason, contained raw rice.

The next time I get married, it's going to be to a wife.

Mine washes the dishes . . . but he can't seem to load the dishwasher. He would rather wash a sink full of dirty dishes (and leave them to air-dry) than empty the clean dishwasher and then reload it. Go figure.

I have heard it - and lived it - but it never seems to go out of style:)

The Mother said...

Yep, but mine goes:
It's Stretch's turn.
No it's not. I did one last week.
Well, I'm not doing it. It's your dish.
You ate off it too!
But you had it last.

Etc.
