Would It Make You Feel Better???

...so this past Saturday, I got up early and headed to my sister's. We were supposed to be going to my niece's t-ball game but it was rained out so INSTEAD we had a couponing party!!! (14 Vitamin waters for only $7...yeah, I'm bragging!). In the meantime, Matt was left at home to tidy up, run some errands and then headed to a bachelor party which was a full day of bowling, paint balling and partying.

I come home from my exciting couponing and head downstairs to let the dogs out. If the direct path to their cages which is the only way in or out, one of them has pooped. I grr to myself, let them out, clean it up then call my husband. Trying not to be that bitchy wife that they are all going to complain about when you hang up, I wait for Matt to answer. Our convo:

Me: If I were to calling you and tell you I was pissed about something, would you know why?
Matt: No...
Me (raising voice slightly): Don't you lie to me Matthew G! There is only one way in and one way out to put the dogs up. I know you saw it!
Matt: Oh yeah...one of the dogs pooped in the basement.
Me: YEAH! There are paper towels in the basement, why couldn't you take the 5 seconds pick it up?
Matt: Would it make you feel better if I told you I stepped in it barefoot?
Me: (trying not to laugh) Just don't do it again...

I never answered him but yes, it did make me feel better and I could totally tell someone had to stepped in it, too so I know he wasn't lying.

Ha, I think that is punishment enough. I am the official poop scooper here at the house, so I can relate.

On the day comparison--I am think your husbands paintballing, bowling, etc., wins...

This falls in the category of, "things no one tell us about marriage!"

LOL. That is both hilarious and disgusting.

Husbands are notorious for not cleaning up animal "stuff"!! Mine was awful until I got preg, now he does the cleaning bc I can't. But it totally would have made me feel better. :)

OMG. I would have been royally pissed. Luckily C will clean it if I'm not there. But when I'm there? totally different story.

Oh, that's annoying. But him stepping in it? Yeah, that kinda makes up for it. Hehe.

That is so gross!! Good for you because it would have annoyed me more that he couldn't clean up the ppop while he was cleaning up his foot. But sometimes you just have to be okay with karma, right? ;)
