Re: Sometimes I forget that DH needs explicit directions....

@house_cat    Lol on the misunderstanding. But gotta say I love the color and print of your tablecloth

Smiley Happy @house_cat 

Gosh, I hope he didn't strain himself!

 

I've got to give my DH that tablecloth test to see what he would do!

I give your husband alot of credit, at least he remembered to take it out of the dryer and put it on the table.

 

I would have found the tablecloth still in the dryer. And hear the words "Oh, I forgot".

Most men are extremely literal. That picture is priceless.

I do not like to generalize behaviors but men just are not detailed oriented!  Sometimes my SO gets annoyed at how I talk louder (he calls it yelling) when I explain things so  I got a tee shirt that says "You call it yelling but I call it motivational speaking for the selective listener"

Omg! That is us!  To make matters worse, I'm from a large Italian-American family and yelling is our normal speaking voice.  I can't tell you how many times he's told me to stop yelling, which honestly only makes me get louder.

@house_cat   I am also from an Italian loud family!  SO telling me to quit yelling at him frustrates me and I do get louder to!

I'm laughing that I'm not the only one who experiences this level of helpfulness  . . . 

 

Who knew it was male interpretation?  Not sure I'm buying it but still the laugh helps when those minimal efforts don't.
