Every time my wife was pregnant she went on a super “nesting” phase. I always dreaded the “don’t be mad when you get home”.

best was she tore out 2 whole floors of a mix of carpet and hardwood in s house we had just bought. Planned on doing floors just not that soon. She used a hammer, a screwdriver and a pair of garden shears to pull that off. Hauled it out and was burning it when I pulled in.

worst was same pregnancy, came home to find her putting up a new bathroom vanity. She wanted to surprise me. I walked in and she was mad as all get out, apparently she never learned about breakers and electricity. Said she spent 2 hours getting shocked trying to hook it up. I suggested turning off the light switch to start😂🤦‍♂️

And here I thought I had it tough when I came home and found all the kitchen wallpaper lying on the floor.

I feel better already.

Maybe this is just my wife, but there seems to be a difference in preparedness. We’re spending the weekend in Steamboat. The day before we leave I filled up the truck with gas, topped off the wiper fluid because it’s going to be snowing on the way there, pre-packed my stuff, and loaded the ski stuff into the truck. My wife, on the other hand, an hour after we’re supposed to leave: “oh, on the way, we have to stop by Redbox to return a movie and by UPS because I’ve been meaning to return something for 2 weeks and today is the last day I can return it.”

And I’m sure this has been said in the past 11 pages, but I don’t think my wife has put gas in a vehicle since we got married. I genuinely worry that she’s going to run out of gas and be stranded on the side of the road while I’m away on hunting trips.

I don't know about others, but I'm an animal if I leave any tools out in the garage, oil rag on my bench or don't clean up wood chips immediately. However, I'm being petty when I call her out for the 182 piece make-up, hair dryer and nail kit strung across the bathroom because they're where they belong.

My wife is a wonderful cook, fastidious housekeeper and life partner. She has put up with my hunting obsession's, dirty bird dogs in the house, butchering in the kitchen and me for 40+ years. She has never said no to a proposed hunting trip or begrudged me anything. I thank God daily for her presence in my life. However, it is a constant battle for me to meet her expectation on cleanliness and clutter. My peeve since day one has been when she starts a project to clean up my stuff with the expectation that it will meet her standard. Never going to happen as I am incapable of operating at that level.

That's my wife with her hair dryer. She leaves it on the vanity and it belongs under the vanity. It literally takes 2 seconds to put it away. Don't even get me started on changing the toilet paper roll.

My wife and I had been dating about a year when I took her on her first duck hunt. We were in a blind I had built on a pond and got setup nice and early. I explained to her the "plan" to stay hunkered down until I called out Shoot then stand and I'd let her have first crack at them. We get buzzed by some teal right at first light then it happens 3 mallards 2 green heads and a hen cup right into the decoys. I yell shoot and nothing happens but I'm not sure why as I'm watching the birds not her. I yell shoot again and nothing again. The birds have flared from her movements and are about to leave again I yell shoot. This time I hear 3 quick shots but instead of a bird or two falling I see pieces of my blind being blown into the pond. I looked at her and said "what happened"?. Her "the barrel got stuck in the camo netting". Me "then why did you shoot. Her screaming "BECAUSE YOU TOLD ME TO [email protected]#$ING SHOOT"!

That is classic.
