OMG, I don’t even know where to start!!!!!! Have you ever had a “battle, argument, disagreement or whatever” with someone that started as a somewhat serious issue, but just turned into the most laughable, ignorant thing ever. I am having so much trouble finding the words…… but Einstein has done it again…...DAMN BUTTON PUSHER!!!!
Ok So here’s the thing…. I am very very organized and have OCD about the cleanliness of my house….. most importantly things NOT being left on the floor. I can, and frequently do, trip on air, and have broken many bones from falling etc. ( to be honest though, I have probably always been OCD) Either way, I hate things on the floor!!!!!
Einstein has an issue with ….you guessed it leaving things on the floor….most notably his laundry. I have two hampers set up in our bedroom, the black one for his work clothes and the white one for everything else. They are both right outside the bathroom, with absolutely no obstacles in their way. So why can’t he hit the fucking thing?!??!! There is not just one but TWO of them!!!!!
Silly me thinking maybe he hadn’t been taught how to use a hamper in his lifetime, even made signs for the hampers. I gave him a two minute instructional lecture on how to take off dirty clothes and place them in the hamper. I have attempted to show him how easy it is to drop wet towels from his shower right into the basket. NOTHING WORKS!!!! Einstein is not ignorant in away way. If nothing else, the fact that he is so successful at work, proves this. SO Why the hell can’t he hit the hamper?!?!?
Ok, we are getting older, maybe his eyesight is starting to fail. Maybe the fact that he has too many choices is overwhelming for him. So I took ONE HAMPER and put it RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR BEDROOM thinking “he can’t miss this”…. I come home to this…..
are you fricking kidding me?!?!??! He took the time to lay his pants on one side, his tshirts on another and so on and so on. ( I staged this picture, because I can’t find the original one from maybe 3 years ago)…. Yes 3 years ago!!!! We are still having this battle!!!!!
I have tried not washing his clothes if he doesn’t hit the hamper. ( apparently the smells from the chemicals he gets on his clothing bother me more than him though) I have tried hamper relocation, purchasing multiple hampers etc. and am now at my wits end. Last week after actually falling on his clothes, I “snapped”. I took blue painters tape, and outlined the “common areas” of our bedroom. I told him, “If you insist on leaving your clothes on the floor, do it outside of the COMMON AREAS. The common area is now outlined to help make this clear for you.”…… The tape is making him nuts, but he still can’t hit the hamper. (to be honest it is kind of making me nuts too, but I really don’t know what else to do)… a bit of passive aggressiveness here…. This is what the bedroom floor looks like this morning……..
So now I guess I wait? I told him that I was going to make a blog post about this. Maybe he thinks no one will read it. Maybe he thinks everyone will just think I am crazy? I don’t know, but there it is….Evidence to be used against me for when I finally lose it? To all the woman out there…… help?
….to all the guys……. Is this a guy thing?
to all the doctors (psychiatrists) ……..why does he push my buttons
and more importantly why do I let him?!?!??!
This blog is MEANT to be funny. I can’t very well dispose of his body now that I have shared this story with the world, (and I have removed the “body” I outlined on the floor in tape) but maybe I can Push his buttons a bit, by showing him that I did indeed make a blog about this and people actually read it? Please like this, comment, share etc. at the very least smile and know that there is someone out there more messed up than you 😛
