This is our granola cereal. So high up nobody in the house can reach it without a ladder. This isn’t the only thing but I thought it is a good example!

Rainydaysmeanmuddypuddles Fri 17-Jan-20 20:20:23

Yes mine does. Puts things where I can't reach them then tells me I'm lying that I can't reach or tells me to get some ladders.

JohnLapsleyParlabane Fri 17-Jan-20 20:20:54

No. But then we are both short.
Why does your DH put it there? Doesn't it have a more accessible place to live?

Tinty Fri 17-Jan-20 20:21:26

That is so no one else can eat it. Take it down and replace with all bran 😆

ToastandCheese Fri 17-Jan-20 20:21:36

Um, no.

DustyMaiden Fri 17-Jan-20 20:22:40

When I had Venetian blinds my DH cut all of the pull strings so short I couldn’t reach them.

PickAChew Fri 17-Jan-20 20:23:04

Mine opens the bathroom window to just beyond where I can reach it.

Yes, occasionally. He’s 6’3 and forgets how much smaller I am! Tbh I used to put the biscuit tin where only he could reach when I was on a diet!

FruityWidow Fri 17-Jan-20 20:23:36

He soon stopped after I hollered for him to pass it back down to me everyone he did.

Ekefox Fri 17-Jan-20 20:23:56

No, he'd put it in a cupboard and very helpfully leave the cupboard door open so that I could see it in there. And the drawer open so I could see the spoons. And another cupboard open so I could see the bowls.

@Tinty I really like All Bran smile so much so I have to ration myself blush

purpledingyoverboard Fri 17-Jan-20 20:24:30

Yes but we are both tall so not a problem lol.

Grasspigeons Fri 17-Jan-20 20:26:34

Yes! He absent mindedly pops things on top of places like that when he doesnt want the children to get them, forgetting I cant either. He then promptly forgets he has done it too. It makes find stuff extra hard.

Reginabambina Fri 17-Jan-20 20:28:55

Yes, so do my kids. I’m tall though so it doesn’t matter.

RandomMess Fri 17-Jan-20 20:29:56

All the top shelves in the house belong to DH 🤷🏽‍♀️

DieDeutschLehrerin Fri 17-Jan-20 20:31:06

Yes, then gets huffy when food out of my sight, (back of top 2 shelves) goes off in the fridge. He's nearly a foot taller than me.

Icantfind Fri 17-Jan-20 20:33:05

@Ekefox that could be me...sometimes I’ll go back the kitchen and it looks like that scene from sixth sense.

PixieDustt Fri 17-Jan-20 20:34:30

Is your husband slender man? grin
It's funny because my DP can only wish to reach up that high!

PixieDustt Fri 17-Jan-20 20:36:00

To add DP is only about 5'8 I'm only 5'1 so most things are challenge to reach for me 🤣

Elieza Fri 17-Jan-20 20:40:06

Just as well platform shoes are ‘in’ ! grin

Almostfifty Fri 17-Jan-20 20:40:16

I have stepladders to reach my top shelves.

Actually they're to reach the middle shelves, cos I'm tiny. grin

NoIDontWatchLoveIsland Fri 17-Jan-20 20:42:09

He (unintentionally) open a the window too wide and doesn't understand why I don't put things on the top shelf in corner kitchen cupboard. I CANT REACH IT. No one under 6ft can.

elliemcx Fri 17-Jan-20 20:44:53

yes mine, he's 6'6 and puts pans and pots nesting in each other at the top of the cupboards. I've nearly knocked myself out on more than one occasion trying to get them down.

Zoidbergonthehalfshell Fri 17-Jan-20 20:46:28

Yes! We buy the 24 can packs of Pepsi Max. He always, ALWAYS puts them on top of out tall fridge freezer where I haven't got a hope in hell of reaching them, then complains because I don't put another can in the fridge when I take one out.

I've told him that I. CAN'T. REACH. THEM. sooo many times... angry

MyHairNeedsASnip Fri 17-Jan-20 20:47:22

Yes, I can only see my forehead in the bathroom cabinet mirror he put up. I wouldn't care but he ain't so tall himself.
