when your wife flushes her 500$, 3 week old, perscription glasses that you just paid for down the toilet

after the fun of

bailing the tank
bailing the bowl
removing the toilet

she was very lucky they couldn't make the top turn out of the toilet and i found them

When your wife takes you to the vet to have you neutered.

And the glasses were in the toilet because...?

Did she bump them in on accident right after she flushed?

Also, when your neighbor's wife takes you to the vet to have you neutered.

Then the neighbor's wife orders replacement gonads and has them delivered to your wife.

When you watch your wife beach your brand new wakeboard boat on a rocky sandbar as she pulls you for the first time (wakeboarding you freaks).

when your wife leaves her wallet on the bus and then someone takes it and runs up her credit cards

then the next day she flushes her 500$, 3 week old, perscription glasses that you just paid for down the toilet

kinda leaves you on the edge of your seat for tomorrow

>> Did she bump them in on accident right after she flushed?

fell off her shirt, yup

When your wifes parents move in for 2 months.

Had to look over my shoulder when posting this. Posting things like this can also threaten marital bliss :)

To deviate a bit on the down the toilet thing.

I was taken care of biz. in the loo. When I bent over to

flush I sneezed and my $ 850. bridge flew out and went

round and round and down, never to be retrieved!

" It now sleeps with the fishes. "

Taking her camping when she hates camping. Totally witchy, annoying, and intransingent, right up until it was time to pack up to leave when she magically became helpful and efficient. For the sake of bliss, no more letting her insist on going anyway.

Geez, Adam ... if you're going to let a little thing like that get in the way of your marital bliss, I'm going to be worried about you two! ;)

Now if she set the house (or the dog) on fire or something, that'd be a story!

>>a lot of smoke when she cooks

My wife was on the phone w/ a client when I set off the smoke detector. He asked her what the commotion was about and she said it was just her husband cooking again.

I was thinking I needed to work on her on her marketing finesse a bit, but at second glance, I think she had it nailed.

Ah, you've been to some barbeques in the UK then?

Sidenote: A Google search for that term gives a bunch of "related searches" at the foot of the page.

(just to turn the tables on the boys for a bit)

...when you find the beautiful entirely hand-stitched quilt your mother spent a year making for your 16th birthday, made partly with fabrics from your grandmother and great grandmother...

has been donated to your new puppy for bedding.

your new, young, CHEWY puppy.

your new, young, chewy, SICKY-UPPY PRONE puppy.

and not to your puppy's bed in the nice, clean, dry laundry, either.

Nooo.

To your puppy's day bed in the garage.

To your puppy's CHOPPED THE BOTTOM OFF AN OLD CHEMICAL DRUM THAT WE USED FOR A COMPOST BIN FOR A YEAR AND STILL WHIFFS OF GREEN MATTER day bed in the garage.

Man still owes me.

did the man know how precious that quilt was when he selected it for use as puppy bedding?

My new motto. Wife says it causes cancer tho. I gave up smoking for her, but grill-advice would threaten marital bliss with a supermodel.

pharanque:

*lol* yeah, he did. Or at least you'd think he'd remember after having heard exactly how important it was on previous occasions when he:

- thought one of the fabrics was a good match for his daughter's favorite doll's body and I stopped him just before he cut a patch out of it. (though he does get big kudos for patching the doll himself at all).

- tried to use it for packing material when we were moving house - to go between the edges of furniture and his grotty, oil-stained ropes.

*sigh* but no. Completely oblivious. I'm starting to think he has a vendetta against the quilt.

jatar_k - no worries mate. Was just surprised that the girls hadn't made it in here yet. :)

I'm sure my wife would say that when I say that it defintely threatens marital bliss

or maybe just my ability to breathe ;)

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way :)

I have a story similar to the "quilt" one, with me as the antagonist. Not quite as bad, but Bad Enough not to want to relate it in detail. Thankfully, the downy, pristinely white baby quilt my wife handcrafted and embroidered came clean - before the baby shower for which it was made

Forgiven but not forgotten

From me: coming home with a new expensive toy that will surely require a ton of expensive upgrades and add-ons over the coming year.

From her: You know that [project that took a week to complete] you did? I'm thinking it should be [larger, smaller, different color, completely rebuilt].

he obviously has no instinct for self preservation.
hide the quilt!
and maybe any sharp objects as well...

husbands are perfect

I asked a friend (a man) if he would have done anything different in his marriage if he'd had to do it over again, after his third bitter divorce. His reply, in all seriousness, was, "No, I was the perfect husband."

I think it is safe to say, at minimum, he lacked introspection. :)
