DA, I feel ya girl. Love DH to bits but he is cut from the same cloth as yours. If I had a buck for every time I said "If you want it done right, do it yourself" I'd be a very wealthy woman!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Well ladies....I have to say. DH is only home on the weekends and he works outside, chops wood, plays with the kid, helps train the horses. Mind you he does end up bleeding at least once in the course of the weekend, but aside from that he's a pretty good egg. He also went through this stage that he either broke something or got mud all over the house. Thankfully that is over, he nearly had a boot permanently affixed in this bootay. He's also learned to put his coffee cups in the diswasher. I consider him housebroke:)

Sorry for your frustration OP...I'd be aggravated too :)

I had one that was handy, helpful & quick to respond. He was also quick to respond to a bar tramp. Pick your poison ladies.

Oh we mostly seem to all have men like these in our lives don't we - and better still I have 4 sons who are just the same!!!
Why am I supposed to know where they've abandoned stuff - I just found the spirit level buried under a pile of crap that never got cleared away last year that they searched so well for. If things don't leap out and bite them they will never find them
It would seem that I have a whole troop of fairies who do the ironing, gardening, cleaning, wood carrying - endless list
Men!!! Whatever would we do without them though!!!

Now I know that marriage proposal sound like a crazy suggestion but if I married you I could save thousands a year. LOL Shalom
LOL! Donald, I am too cheap and too impatient to wait for the "fix it" guy to come, so I only call for stuff that I absolutely cannot do myself. Besides, when hubby isn't here, I really do enjoy the solitude and quiet.

Not only can I fix the drain and repair and electric cord, I can lay bricks, mix and pour cement and do fencing like a pro. My first job at 18 was for the US Forest Service, working in Resource Management. The means doing a lot of fencing, pouring quail guzzlers and building cement stock tanks that use streams as a water source. I got real good at schlepping bags of cement from the truck to job site in some pretty rugged terrain. That was really a great job for a girl who had parents who absolutely were helpless for stuff like that. I learned a LOT. We also had to do our own oil changes on the USFS trucks and of course, out in the wilderness, we BETTER be able to manhandle a truck tire.

Sweet as your proposal is......HAH......I think I'll stick with the DH of many, many years. He's a great guy and only occasionally makes me stamp my feet and cuss.

Why did this happen? Well, while getting ready for our daughters lesson, I had been going back and forth from the trunk, getting things out. He totally spaced the fact that the trunk was wide open, and drove off like that. But of course, in his mind, it was my fault the saddle had fallen out because I left the trunk open. Really? I guess if he had actually HELPED me get our daughters gear out of the car, I could have blamed him. BONEHEAD!
Luckily no major damage was done to my saddle, just some scratches I guess I can live with. Like I have a choice.
If that had happened to my show saddle, I'd be a widow right now.

LOL, every now and then I have to remind him that MY name is not HAZEL and I don't wear a maid's uniform..........Nope, still not housebroke and actually I think he's getting worse, after 21 years of marriage.

It's the eternal question-Are we better with them or without them?

As long as we're allowed to rant when things just get to be too much, then I gotta say WITH.

I am married to one of those "start a billion projects, finish none" handyman types. Some days I want to pull my hair out. For example, my barn was built 11 years ago, I still don't have a back door. And the front door has been broken for 6 months. Two of my three pastures have partial fencing, the third that I actually use has one place that is held together by a come-along instead of nails, and has been that way for a year. (thankfully, the wire overlaps there and so is not an escape hazard.) My favorite though, is if I remind him of something once I'm nagging and I get "I KNOW! You've told me a dozen times", but if I don't remind him I get "WHY didn't you remind me? I'd have it done by now!" Sure babes, whatever helps you sleep at night...or during the day...or every time you sit down for 5 minutes....
