When I'm working from home all day, I'm expected to remember EVERYTHING and use those days to accomplish the "honey do" list and then do my paid work if it fits in. If on a conference call, I should muti-task. If I forget anything, I get the stink eye and bitched at.

If my wife forgets anything, I am told all the things that she accomplished that day or accomplishes normally while also working. :lol:

If I list what I did, I get, "Okay, you're supposed to do those things as well as the things you didn't..."
Now granted, this doesn't happen all the time, but yesterday I apparently ruined the world.

I just realized I am only going to be in the same state as my husband 4 days in the next month so I would be happy to have this sort of division of labor kerfluffle

It was funny to me because her and my son were gone all day on a trip and she came back to a super clean house.
ALL THE LAUNDRY DONE. Folded and put in baskets or kids' respective rooms so they can put it away on their own. Like she asks them to do as well when she does it. Baseball uniform laid out.
DISHWASHER EMPTY. SINK EMPTY.
Dog fed.

Because I forgot to put something back in her car and I didn't make lunches (when they said they wanted to buy) she got pissy. Now granted she's tired as fuck. It's why I just apologized and said I'd take care of it when I get home. After I worked all day, coached our kid's ball game and have been out for over 12 hours. (I left out that last sentence) :lol:

:lol: I just wasn't in the mood for a "spat". I am too tired and I have to go coach some kids and don't want to them to be the "kicking dog" for having gotten into a dumb argument.

It's no secret most wives consider their husbands as their oldest child.

My wife and i had some doozies when the first 3 were still babies. She wasn't working and i worked 10-11 hour days, and had a 1 1/2 hour commute.

I'd get home and she was like "I'm off the clock!" like i wasn't ON the clock tje previous 13-14 hours.

See, this is why I like my current situation. "Am I going to do that today? No, I'm not. I'm going to drink beer and watch sports."

End of discussion.

It’s good to change them out every so often, it took me almost 20 years to learn it the first time.

Yes. "Consider" and "has stated plainly" is the difference with my wife.
