Leave my chainsaw alone you have your own and if you don't know how to service it you should not be playing with it.

Don't drive my truck unless you are going to replace the gass. I hate it when she who must wants the truck so she can go riding through the week and gives me her car to go to work, so I can earn the money required for her life style and to top it off. Her car is on empty so like the great husband I am I fill it with petrol only to find i get my truck back empty.
Got to be in love with the women to put up with her strange ways.

Like her snoring and the frequent breaking of wind while asleep. Do you know what a toe kick is. Its the gap at the bottom of the kitchen sink which allows her to get her feet closer to the bench. I found that the design was a little faulty so I installed a stool so she could sit while getting my evening meal ready.

The vacum cleaner us men invented that to make the love of our lives day, just a little easer, as is the washing machine, dryer, iron, electric stove. I had quite some concern for she who must, splitting wood for the winter and cooking, thats why I went and brought her an electric stove and the gas fired heating device. Not to mention the huge arms she had developed and the hard hands. But wait there is more look at this. A ride on mower to save her time. It has a trailer and poo scoop so she can pick up the horse poo while mowing the lawns and more. There is also a beer holder.

Don't you think she is spoilt.

No I am not a male pig. I am a product of women. My mother and older sister are responsible for what I am, because, like all men, our fathers were away at work and the main dominant factor in our lives were Women

So I have put on my bbyf and had a go. I do expect to get roasted.

I own the spelling mistakes.
LOL! I am not going to flame you, I giggled when I read your post.

Marriage is a two street.
My husband and I both know it. I do crap that annoys him and he does A LOT stuff that annoys me. He does things that makes my life easier and I do the same for him.
And just for arguments sake, I can file a chain on a saw ;) My husband refuses to put diesel in the pickup if he drove it and he has to ask me where his tools are even if he was the last one to use them.
But I am not bitching too bad, if something needs done or a bill needs paid there is money in the bank no matter what, no questions asked about where the money goes.

I can't imagine my husband ever TELLING me to make dinner, or clean or any of that 'woman's stuff'. I do those things because I love him and our family and our home, not because he expects it. Oh yeah, and because I'm a little OCD and messes make me twitch :)

LOL! I can't stand a dirty house either!
I do those things because I love my husband, not because I have to and he does the same for me, that's the way it should be! Plus I take pride in being the all- around girl, I can go work with the boys all day, maintain a house like a woman and clean up and act like a lady when in town. I was independent before I met my husband, he knows I can do just fine without him. The same goes for him, he could perfectly well manage without me but we chose to be together. That's how it should be- not being married out of necessity.

At first I had not realized that my newly acquired Diva might be good at dressage and it took a young gifted female to show me that my little mare was a natural at the discipline. Me, well I had bought her simply because she was pretty and she had given me a lick on the first meeting. Her role would be to take me down to the pub but that wasnít good enough for her. If she had been human, then should would have been a prima donna ballerina. She always wanted more and she felt she was worth it. Nonsense! That's why DeeDee kept exploding on her "gifted" rider & all the troubles only worsened? No, DeeDee didn't want to be a "Diva"; she wanted to be a HORSE, & all she ever did was to tell you that.
Barry, I'm disappointed that you didn't learn the simple lesson that DeeDee tried to teach you. People need to quit humanizing horses, quit projecting their desires onto horses, & listen to their horses for real.

Dear Northern - you press upon a sensitive spot in my psyche. To reply to the point you make would require that I write what would almost be a thesis on the role that some horses play in some owner's lives. I am not a trained psychologist and therefore I am not properly qualified to write such a paper on the impact that bereavement can have on a human. I could only write as a follow up to my own personal experiences. Indeed, 12 months later I have still not recovered from the impact which the inevitable death of DiDi left upon me.

But I won't give up the personal belief that for many owners the horse plays a special part in their lives and goes way beyond the relationship normally seen between animal and human - except perhaps between dog and human.

DiDi, a mere horse, could, and still does, make me cry - that is a capability which few humans can achieve in me. But I will admit that I am damaged goods.

OK, then....

Back to the fun stuff. In our 'pre-your going to be stuck with me for the rest of your life agreement' I made it VERY clear, I DON'T DO DOMESTIC!!! And he made it clear that he does things that don't make sense to the outside world:)

Worked out GREAT!! He loves to cook & knows I start microwaves on fire so he makes ALL the meals. I can honestly say I'm allergic to cleaning & no longer have to empty the vacuum. But I still do the cleaning & laundry.

In return he gets a wife that doesn't nag about him spending time with friends, actually points out attractive women, and FIL who's always wanted a son (=hubby gets the boat, the shop, and permission to steal as much barn space away from me as he wants).

I still want to know how he knows i'm rolling my eyes at him when I'm 3000 miles away.....

How long has that agreement lasted, smurf? My hubby knew full well when we got married that not only did I not know much about cooking, but I DETESTED doing it. It seriously puts me into a murderous rage. He on the other hand, is a freaking gourmet chef, worked his way through college as a caterer (among other things).The agreement was he would cook and I would clean. That lasted about a year. Now at 14 years in, we get into almost weekly spats because now he expects me to both clean and cook, and gets ****ed at me if I don't pack him lunch to take to work. Grrrrr. There have been many times I wanted to whack him upside the head with whatever cooking utensil or pot I had in my hand when he walks through the kitchen with this smug look on his face. His logic is the more I cook, the more I will like doing it. No, the more I will dream up interesting ways to murder you in your sleep, buddy.

I have never asked my wife to make my breakfast and lunch for work, but she gets up 10 minutes before me every morning to have me a Sausage,Egg and Cheese Sandwich and either left overs or a couple of sandwiches to take to work.

She loves driving the riding mower and volunteers to cut the grass every chance she can. We both cook and know that she is better at it in the kitchen than me, but I beat her when it come to the charcoal. I try to grill a couple times a month to give her a break. Her and all the kids( when they were there) took care of all household duties. She is a domestic engineer that homeschools our daughter therefore the agreement is if she gets to stay home to raise our daughter and me be out of the house working then they are responsible for it. I do get into a bad way when there are clothes piled up on the table, beds or dressers when they should be put away by the time I get home. I'm gone from 5:10 am til 5:45pm most days and see no reason there isn't enough time to have that done.

I have been the stay at home dad before for almost a year and never once let it get away. Infact the house stayed spotless due to my OCD for cleanliness. I accept a lived in look, but cannot stand clothes stacked on the couch, counters, dressers,floor etc. god forbid I look up and see dust build up on the ceiling fan. I have shut the household activities down and had everyone,including me, do a complete cleaning that took the entire weekend to finish.

They do there best not to let me go to that place often. lol
