To wonder why I have to do EVERYTHING?

So DH answered the phone downstairs and shouted to me that our eldest DS wanted me. I was painting, up a stepladder, at the top of the house. So I put down my paintbrush and trail all the way downstairs to find that he is 'just calling for Granny's address to send her a birthday card'.

Granny is DH's mum. Could he not have asked his ruddy father????

You get to do everything because you are good at it.

Next time answer the phone and say "Oh I don't have a clue, ask your Dad" and then hand him the phone and wander off.

You realise if you were 'terrible' at painting DH would be up the ladder and you would be free to answer the phone first smile

Kudos on an 18 year old who remembered granny's birthday! Don't think I would have done that at 18!

I pretend to be deaf....
(Child/husband shouts request/question)
Me "I can't hear you",
(said child/husband repeat their shouted request/question)
Me "I can't hear you"
(Again, child/husband repeats shouted request/question)
Outcome...they either give up/come to me (normally moaning about how deaf I am)....jobs a gooden !
