messy husband

Posted by houndrat on Monday Jan 28, 2008 Under husbands

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I have a great husband.? Really, he’s wonderful—super supportive, quick to send me on a mom’s night out, etc, etc.? He’s also a great father.? He loves to spend time with the munchkins, and rarely complains.

But, he does come with one minor glitch.? He’s a slob.? Which in and of itself, wouldn’t be so bad, but the thing is—he doesn’t think he’s a slob.? Oh, he knows he’s messy, but he thinks it’s the garden-variety type messiness.? Not the full-blown slobdom that it truly is.

What are the criteria for massive slovenliness, you might ask?? Well, here are a few of mine.

1)? Cuts hair, and leaves it in the sink for over 3 days.? Extra points if the? sink in question is the downstairs guest bathroom (it is).

2)? Cannot find the trash can to save his life, even though, to the best of my knowledge,? the trash has? resided in the same spot since we moved in over two years ago.

Exhibit A:? Is this where you put your ice cream box once the contents have been devoured?? I think not.

Exhibit B:? Trash from the lunch I brought home on Sunday.? I don’t know, maybe he thinks it’s a nice decorating touch—-bag lady chic, perhaps?

3)? Throws dirty clothes in the most convenient location, which is typically the floor.? Extra points when they are dripping wet and muddy (they are).

? 4)? Piling? a table? with assorted crap, and then leaving it there until I remove it.? Extra points if table was freshly cleaned (it was).

What he doesn’t believe (yet) is that I spend so much time tidying up his messes throughout the house, I have a scarcity of time left to actually clean anything, in the true sense of the word.

I’m hoping by keeping a photo-blog of his daily disasters, he might actually a) realize he’s far, far? beyond your basic messy husband and b) learn to use the garbage can.

Honey, are you reading this?

    Wow. When my husband complains that I don’t make the bed nice enough, I will send him here!

    Hahahahah! They say great minds think alike! I also have been keeping a photo journal of my hubbies frequent messes around the house/yard, and boy oh boy it’s true what they say! Pictures speak 1000 times louder than words ;D I’ve been funneling the time I’m not picking up after him into crafting a very satisfying power point presentation. The rare, rare times he would clean (because I had had it and was on strike) he would bang around in the kitchen for about 10 minutes before huffily inquiring why wasn’t I helping him? That’s when I’d bust out the power point presentation, helpfully pointing out all the times I have cleaned up after him with no nagging, self righteousness, or demands that he help me. Point, check, and match! ^_^ her hee!
