He has his own towel rack and his own pile of small towels just for wiping the counters. And they are all permanently stained, proving my point, but there you go, welcome to the world of a long and very happy marriageBut the thread is hilarious. I almost died when someone posted a photo of the exact same IKEA chair we bought for DH to throw his clothes on!
This reminds me that my husband will open the fridge or cabinet and complain it’s organized inefficiently and I tell him to fix it, then (because it’s fine and I know where everything is, and as I do most of the shopping and cooking, he can frankly suck it), which he inevitably never does and then he opens the cabinet two months later and says that same thing.....Retirement can bring up several new issues. My husband is semi-retired now and he alphabetized my spices (I preferred my method of keeping the ones most often used at the front), and in general he finds my ways inefficient and he has many suggestions for me. I might add, he is a dentist, and for his entire professional life he has had an assistant or two at his elbow fulfilling his every whim. I am struggling to help him realize that he is doing his thing - and I am doing mine. Not that we can't help each other but it is not a moment on moment expectation.
I think I would be thrilled if dh and dd could actually put their dishes IN THE SINK. Instead they get piled on the counter and we end up with crap all over the counter and where on earth are you supposed to get any cooking/cooking prep done if there's no counter space?We both work from home and my husband leaves his breakfast and lunch dishes in the sink all day. The sink is right next to the dishwasher, I don’t understand why he can’t talk the extra minute to put them in.
