Hrmph, I can relate to that too. What is really aggravating about that ^^^ is the workshop ---- the spit-shine clean cement floor, a place for everything/everything in its place workshop.

I don't even put wrenches away, in the tool chest, anymore - that is because I get yelled at for not laying them in the proper drawer, in the exact correct position in relation to the wrenches on either side of it

Yet my halters and lead ropes get flung on a hook in any haphazard fashion, the chains on the gates & stalls (I have pipe panel stalls) get hooked inside-out/upside down/twisted----------ack!

I am as anal about those latches as he is about "wrench placement". Perish the thought I'd have to evacuate horses out of the barn, after dark, I want those chains latched in a certain way that all I have to do is grab and release without having to figure out which WRONG position the chain is in when seconds count. That means I'm always the last one out of the barn at night and I re-do everything

I CAN'T ride 'em n slide 'em. I HAVE to lead 'em n feed 'em Thnx cowchick77.

I would be ecstatic if I found my tools put back anywhere near my toolbox. I have to make her figure out where she left them at when she was building the rabbit cage out of my scrap wood pile or putting together one of her other projects. I have bought her 5 tool kits over the last 4 years, but she kept going after mine because she forgot about hers. I had to start locking my box to keep her out. lol That really set the fire temp on high.

See, and my DH leaves his tools in my barn, usually in my tack room floor, and gets MAD at me if I put them up! He built the barn for my horses and then gets mad when I want it to be for my horses, not his array of 5 billion tools. Dude, you have the entire garage and two sheds outside, why do you need my barn too? If those sheds and garage were organized it might not take you an hour to find what you need, instead of wandering from building to building because things aren't put up. And now he's talking about taking half of my stalls and turning them into storage, no doubt to keep me from buying any more horses. Even though we have less than half the number we've always had out here. Not happening, buddy. I plan on filling them with hay this season. Then they will still be there if I need them down the road.

I bought a 12x16 storage building to make into my workshop next to the driveway. It has half the space taken up with boxes of stuff that were suppose to go in a yard sale, I have to step over the buckets of fish, duck, chicken and dog food that are just inside the door just to get to where my tool box, drill press and other various tools are.

I repay her by dropping my dirty work clothes off all over her freshly mopped floor then leave water footprints across her freshly vacuumed carpet on my way to drink out of the carton of orange juice. Don't get me started on timing it perfectly to take her car to work the day after she washes it so I can bring it home no longer white and full of sand in the floor boards. lol

She in turn gets to stay home to home school and raise our daughter(instead the state trying to through public school) while babysitting for her a few extra bucks, feed the horses, ducks/chickens/geese(that she wanted) and dogs in the morning while living in a comfortable ole farm house on 5 acres. All her bills and expenses are covered while driving a new car as I drive the old truck. She gets new appliances, clothes, trips to visit her family, field trips with the home school group and so on so forth with no questions asked because she deserves it for putting up with me over the last 14 years.

OK people allow me to inform you how lucky you are.
I know there are tools here and at the farm but I cant tell the difference between a wrench and pliers. the hands dont even ask me to hand them something if they are working .
The tools were my fathers and he was mechanically inclined. My mother was a handy person with tools also.
That ability has skipped a generation when it passed over me.
I also married women who were very "girly" they didnt do manual labor either. My children are doomed. Shalom

Shouldn't this thread have been a 'man free zone' with a password and everything?
My DH rarely finishes any job he starts but apparently that's my fault for pestering him to do something else - guess he feels that if he does a bit of them all it will keep me smiling!!!

It's an on going joke here that if we are out running errands together and he says "how about I drop you off while I go....." I just give him a look and he gets the point. He has left me waiting at the door one to many times.
