Come home from a trying day and DH has put up the outside Christmas lights. I have no friffing idea why - he's got a massive snagging list for inside the house hmm

Do I

A/ go in and mention that they'll need to come down?

B/ ask him to re erect in a less unseemingly fashion?

C/ drink gin and fuggetallabahtit?

I know I'm being a nob, but homsetly, this shizzle bothers me.

For clarity C/ isn't an option as gin isn't terribly Slim World friendly.

I thought this thread would be much ruder!

Go with C, do the inside jobs and tackle the erection when you are both ready to.

You don’t say why they need to come down?

What? You want him to take them down just because there's other stuff he was meant to do first? YAB a grinch!

You are inside, so you can’t see them.

Just forget about it.

Not sure any exterior lights can be “refined” though.

No I think she wants them to come down because he hasn't put them up very nicely? Is that it op?
I would go out tomorrow and do it myself. Other people never get it right grin

Oh I see. Well, if it's because he hasn't put them up properly then I take it back - YAB entirely reasonable!

Absolutely not done it properly!

Inconsistency of loopage, ffshmm

I took a photo, but I'm not outing myself on here! grin

Might do a diagram...

You'll have to be subtle and sort them out when he's not home. Can't abide unequal loopage 😀
