Does that have anything to do with the fact that your childs name is CARson? Oh, I just crack myself up.

If I complain and ask him to do anything he usually says well he never wanted to go anyway!

Aargh!

you have me in stitches over here!!! :LOL

we had a conversation WAYYYY back, i think i was pregnant with ourt first child(8 years ago) we were in jersey.. and for those of you that know what custard(soft serve icecream) is.. this is for you!

me: hey, can you get me a vanilla with rainbow sprinkles on yoru way home?
him: its 100 degrees out, it will melt
me: get it in a soda cup, it can melt a little, its okay
him: are you sure this is what you really want?
me: um yessssssssssssssssssssss
him: i really think that i am not going to stop, we just had custard 2 days ago, if you have another one this early in the season i am afriad its going to ruin your appetite for them for the rest of the summer. if you have too much they won't seem as delicious.

LOLOLOL. his logic, its enough to scare anyone.

oh... and why is it that no matter when the last time they went was.. when its time to leave the house they have to take a crap? is it a man thing, they can crap on demand?

good thing i have a sense of humor!

DH: Babe, where is the ....?
Me: It's in the ....
DH: No, it's not. I just looked in there.
Me: Yes, it is. Look again.
DH: I LOOKED and it's NOT there.

So at this point I get up and go get it out of the place I told him it was at.

Me: There it is. Behind the .... You do realize that sometimes looking actually requires you to move things around right?
DH: I did!
Me: No, you didn't, or you would have found it.

I hear you on the "finding things" deal. Just this morning:
DH: Do you know where DD's sandals are?
me: Did you look down here (first floor)?
DH: yes.
me: Then they must be upstairs.
(I go to look in the living room anyway, because I know DH!)
me: Here they are....right in the middle of the living room floor.
DH: Oh.

I mean....these are men that were supposed to be able to find animals in the jungle or something, right? I guess game animals are quite a bit larger than toddler sandals.....

"OMG, is this a male thing?? That is my dh every time we leave the house"

me also! Same for finding things. Yesterday he drove himself nuts trying to find the turkey baster in what I consider to be a relatively uncluttered drawer (ok, maybe a teensy crowded but I've seen worse)
Literally, I saw it as soon as I opened the drawer.

Oh, and I have to agree with the one about "baby needs you"

Bwah!!!!

Or asking where, for instance, the kitchen scissors are, when they ARE IN THE SAME PLACE every time he asks!

Ach. How many times should I need to say, "top drawer under the dishrack?" At some point, isn't rote repetition supposed to sink in? Hmmmmm????

Dh gets all pissy and uptight about anyone sharing his drinking glasses, for fear of GERMS (he subscribes to the concept of catching things from others pretty much exclusively; I believe a healthy immune system is where it's REALLY at, so I think one can be exposed and withstand sickness by means of a strong immune system).

So I'm like, sure, I respect your values. So no one shares the cup he's using, ever (no one takes a sip of his water, for example).
BUT,
for some insane reason, it's ok with him to 'just rinse out' the cup he just used when he's done using it and put it in the dishrack that way. Anyone else could then end up using that cup and catch his germs, right?! I've told him I'd rather he just leave them for me to actually wash, but he can't seem to do that . (I wash everyone's used dishes -- don't ever just rinse anything out.)

So he thinks it's ok, though, since everyone else in the house (me and dc) are into the 'immune system theory' that he doesn't wash the cups he uses.

I say, if HE believes that germs cause sickness alone, then how could he put them in the dishrack with a clear conscience??

I think it's just his way of copping out -- changing his beliefs to suit whatever point he's making at any given moment.

But, , it's sure hard to take someone seriously that doesn't walk their talk!
Well, *my* dh refrigerates his dirty glasses. His theory is that if it is in the refrigerator then it is still "good" and he can use it the next time he gets a drink. These aren't water glasses, mind you, he doesn't reuse water glasses He reuses milk and soda glasses. Your refrigerator is full of food, mine is full of dirty dishes.
