Can you not stand on a chair?

SoupyNorman Thu 08-Feb-18 10:25:40

Can you not get a chair?

MirandaWest Thu 08-Feb-18 10:26:17

How long would it take for him to get to you?

Wellfuckmeinbothears Thu 08-Feb-18 10:27:10

That would be a bit unreasonable.

I'm 5ft and my dh oftern forgets he's a lot taller and puts things on top shelves and I just climb on the sideboard or stand a chair.

I guess there is a physical reason you can't get them? If so and you should take them, then call him.

pigeondujour Thu 08-Feb-18 10:27:49

I don't think you can call him to come back from work if he's coming back in an hour and a half anyway. Just curse him and stand on a chair.

Why cant you get them?

georgeoutside Thu 08-Feb-18 10:28:03

Oh ffs. Of course that would be unreasonable.

Unless there is a massive drip feed to follow regarding your mobility......

If I was struggling with a flu type bug I wouldn’t be standing on a chair. I’d be dizzy as hell and wouldn’t take the risk.

Bluntness100 Thu 08-Feb-18 10:29:12

The op could be disabled. I'm assuming this is the case as otherwise she would not have posted.

UgandanKnuckles Thu 08-Feb-18 10:53:54

Would he even be allowed to leave work for that? There's no way I'd be getting out of work to get something down from a high shelf.

Stand on a chair! I don’t understand why you think you shouldn’t

PinkHeart5914 Thu 08-Feb-18 10:59:51

Is there a reason you can’t reach the top of the cupboard? Do you have a disability that means you are unable to reach?

Assuming from your post you just have some kind of virus, then stand on a chair

Either way though, he will be home in 1 hour you can wait until then

Deshasafraisy Thu 08-Feb-18 11:01:37

Stand on a chair,o r knock them down with the mop. Don’t be pathetic!

Youshallnotpass Thu 08-Feb-18 11:02:20

Its a cold / the flu - you will be fine with no medication at all to be honest (you can wait)

R u joking unless your in a wheelchair this is ridiculous.

ShatnersBassoon Thu 08-Feb-18 11:08:51

Oh, please! If you're incapable of stretching up, or standing on something, or knocking them down with something, then have a glass of cold water to cool you until 12pm.

Sweetpea55 Thu 08-Feb-18 11:10:58

Goodness sake,,,stand on a chair and get them yourself and stop being so precious

VladmirsPoutine Thu 08-Feb-18 11:11:40

You would be being unreasonable. Get on a chair or get a dampened cloth. This all sounds rather precious behaviour unless you are going to massively drip feed that you have no arms or legs.

SwarmOfCats Thu 08-Feb-18 11:12:10

Just get something to reach up and knock them down!

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Thu 08-Feb-18 11:13:19

He'll be home in an hour and a half. I'd wait. the only meds that will help a high temperature are paracetamol so you'll be ok to miss a dose.

Just rest (or get a long broom handle, stretch a pair of old tights and fix to the end to form a net and scoop the tablets from the top of the cupboard).

ShotsFired Thu 08-Feb-18 11:13:28

Get on a chair, knock them down with a long handled implement, go to sleep instead - so many options.

Unless as pp says, there is a massive drip feed about to drop...

unicorncow Thu 08-Feb-18 11:15:48

Get a chair? That would be very unreasonable to get him to come to get tablets down for you unless you are physically disabled?
