    LMAO! Same! The pause after said quip is also in slow motion as you see her mouth slowly drop open. But dang. Sometimes the satisfaction from a witty truth bomb is worth the inevitable repercussions. Especially when it actually sinks in after the dust settles and you can both have a laugh.

    An oldie but a goodie I originally saw somewhere here on TGR, but it still remains so true. As my car still sits in the body shop awaiting repairs, my wife and I both got a good laugh out of it when I showed it to her again the other day.

So we all should work on 'tone' like Jerry complains about here:
    This and the fact that I want to solve problems and she wants to complain about problems leads to the vast majority of our fights.

    And herein lies the rub. If itís witty enough to make you both laugh itís great.

    I get in trouble for ďtoneĒ a lot with all the women in my life. Rather than using my traditional argument of listen to the words not the tone, Iíve been really working on it, but itís hard. I tend to use a robotic insincere tone to hide the condescending super annoyed tone, but thatís not a big improvement. The alternative of holding your tongue, as mentioned above, is usually the right move.

    Props to puma. I would have laughed out loud at my wife if she tried to push the car while in park. Iím such a jackass I probably would have run over and earnestly pushed real hard with her. If you canít laugh at that though, must be something else going on, because thatís pretty funny no matter who done it. Even a manual you gotta take out of gear and pull the e brake.

    I am an engineer. Do not bring me your problems if you dont want me to provide solutions. It is in my nature. Just like the scorpion, i can only fight my nature for so long before i sting and we both drown.

    Everything has a place in my house. This way, when I'm looking for something, anything, I can usually put my hands on it right away.

    My wife has a place for everything too. Its called "anywhere thats out of sight", usually the closest drawer or closet. I bitch when she goes on a cleaning tangent because NOTHING goes back to its "place", it goes to the closest random out-of-sight spot thats different every time.

    I was trying to find the battery for my impact driver yesterday. Mind you, in my mind there are two places for this item to be. In the charger, or in the fucking driver. I could. Not. Find. It. ANYWHERE. I was like "love, do you remember where you 'cleaned' the cordless drill battery to?" - of course she never remembers where those things went, because its completely random and different every time, depending on what part of the house they were in when they were "cleaned up". After an hour of searching every closet and drawer I gave up and ordered another one.

    You'll find it 3 hours before the new one arrives.

    Nah, in that case youíd still be able to return the new one for a refund. The old one will turn up shortly after the new one is used for the first time.

    That's a good point. And likely very accurate.

    I mean, whether or not I find the original battery is besides the point. I should really have two anyhow.

    Your future wife will do the same. ALL wives do this and they are really good at it. Power of the ring.

    Wife: Youíre going to put that stuff away right?
    Me: Sure, once you move it to somewhere I canít find and I do finally find it and get mad you put it away in a completely wrong spot, I certainly will.

    I mean the battery was just the most recent thing I could think of to illustrate this phenomenon. Here's another:
    I always kept the little propane refill bottles for my mini-weber grill in the same place. Apparently, she decided to "tidy up" that room, and when the grill ran out of gas - mid-steak - I ran down to grab a new bottle, to replace it while the grill was still hot, and surprise! they aren't there.

    So I called her (she was away on business) "HEY! Do you know where the full propane cylinders are??" Her "Uh, aren't they on the half wall in the shit room?" (This is where they're SUPPOSED to be, and were, before she tidied that room up). Me, annoyed now "No, thats where they WERE but remember you cleaned that room all up and moved a bunch of stuff??" Her "Oh yeah. Hmmmmmm. Are they in the upstairs closet?" No. "Are they in the front coat closet?" No. "Are they in the shed?" No. "Hmmmmm. Maybe I put them in the downstairs closet?" No. Meanwhile, my fucking steak has gone from cooking in a nice 450 degree environment, to around room temperature. Finally, Her: "Ohh! Wait I think I know! (after we've exhausted like every other place they could be) Are they in the basement on one of the shelves where all your tools and stuff are???" Yup, there they are BEHIND A BUNCH OF OTHER STUFF that also found a new home on one of those shelves. Steak = ruined.

    So at this point you should have known and checked for spare fuel beforehand. Thatís a mean game sheís playing.

    I forwarded that to my wife and she asked me "why do you have to be such an asshole"? I guess she didn't see the humor.

    Diamond Joe, check some deals on tools that come with the same battery. I need batteries for DeWalt. My ex-wife gave them to her boyfriend. I went to the Home Depot and a real good salesman found some super sale drill / cutoff saw combo with two batteries that was cheaper than 1 extra battery on its own, crazy but true.

    I typically cook, and usually do the dishes as i go typically leaving 1 or 2 pans for me to wash at the end of the meal. I also usually do all the dishes from the day, before i start cooking so i am working with a clean kitchen. I am sick right now and so last night i didnt do the days dishes before dinner, and then asked my wife to please take care of the dishes afterwards so i could go to bed early. I wake up early this morning to the dinner pan and pot soaking in the sink (they didnt need to soak), and any dish i used the day before was undone while the dishes she used had been done. WTF?

    My wife is one of those people who will use up the last roll of TP in the bathroom, and then not get more to replace the stock. When she does replace a roll from the bathroom stock, she orients the TP so it rolls off towards the wall. SMH.

    So your wife actually installs the roll and doesn't just balance it on top of the dispenser? Lucky!
