Yesterday I loaded the dish washer and my wife opened it up to add something before it started. She said you loaded this wrong nothing is going to get clean. So I responded with they get cleaner than they'll get sitting in the sink for a week.

Wrong statement.

Then tonight I go to sweep up a mess the boy made with a box of nerds. The sweeper wasnt picking up. I take the bottom off and a dryer sheets is stuck in the hose and a bunch of dirt and hair is stuck around it.

I said this thing hasn't been working for awhile. She said I wondered why the canister wasnt getting full. I said you'd think that would be an indicator that something is wrong...

Don't get me wrong. I do chores around the house frequently(lately I've slacked being in Illinois and working too many 12s) But sometimes. I make comments that well I should think twice about....I'm naturally sarcastic.

I can top you all!

 

My wife complained that when it rains the passenger seat gets wet.  So I looked into it for her.

 

It hasn't rained since I closed the moon roof but I'm pretty confident it's fixed.

Some women are just that way.  Mine cannot turn the TV and Dish off in the family room.  Told her to turn the dish off first, that way she know she has it off.  Her reply was she didn't know which button was which. Remotes are exactly the same for the living room and family room and she has been running it for 3 years now.  One RED button even has TV in white letters on it.  No further comment.

My wife is perfect! Been that way for years, since I got tired of useless arguments and bad sleeping arrangements.

Oh just go ahead & say it like it is!  But always carry a rope with a large hook so you can get out of that hole you've dug for yourself!  :rolling:

Yeah I'm good for that....True Story

While in the hospital having my son, I had to go to the restroom for a number 2. About that time I hear the nurse walk in the room. I thought it was a good idea to say "Nurse, can you hook me up with an epidural. I'm gonna need it for this one" I thought it was hilarious, wife and nurse not so much.

We went in for contractions when my daughter was born. My idiot mind thought it was a good idea to say "If this isn't real, your driving home" She had my daughter roughly 6 hours later. Granted I was trying to be funny. Probably didn't come off that way.

My wife is either a hot mess or absolutely perfect. Depends on whether you asked me or her which she is.

We've only been married 40 years, and have only had 3 arguments in 43 years.

 

You have to learn what battles to fight, what battles you may win, and what the consequences will be if you lose.  :wallbanging:

 

Do you want to be right, or do you want to be married ?? :D

 

Fortunately, during these 43 years, my wife has learned how to handle my sarcasm.   :thumbs:
