One of the biggest mistakes that I believe we as women make is assuming that our significant others want us to make their lives easier.
We do the most ridiculous things like purchase laundry hampers and then place them in locations which are convenient for our partners to access – only to have them throw their dirty garments onto the floor within centimetres of the hamper itself.
We put their tools away in cupboards which have been labeled according to what’s inside.
“Tools”, “Car Cleaning”, “Screws, Nuts and Bolts” – only to have them turn to us in their time of desperate searching to ask us where their belongings could possibly be.
They’re Suddenly ‘Blind’
Perhaps the funniest part is that before turning to us in a state of sheer panic, they actually attempt to search in all of these places – only to not actually ‘see’ what they’re looking for.
It’s not a matter of “finding it”- heavens no, any fool can FIND a drill in the cupboard marked “power tools”!
They simply cannot SEE the item they are looking for even when it’s staring them straight in the face!
It’s a constant occurrence as well. I mean it’s not as though after the first ten times of showing them where it is they miraculously remember.
I’m The Hero!
No, for the last ten years I’ve had to be the seeker of my husband’s “missing” things and it’s almost as though we are our partner’s heroes when it comes to locating anything they need.
Maybe they enjoy this game they play!
What if it’s some sort of activity that all the blokes play against their significant others!
“Honey have you seen my…?” could all just be an act! For their entertainment!
Or maybe it’s love? Perhaps these men are actually so incredibly blinded by their love for us that they can’t actually ‘see’ anything else!
Either way I will never grow tired of the reaction I get every single time my hubby asks me whether I’ve seen his missing possessions and I accuse him of being in love with me!
Repaying the irritation he causes me with more irritation – priceless!
