How To Help Around The House

Philip was enjoying the second week of a two-week vacation the same way he had enjoyed the first week: by doing as little as possible.

He ignored his wife Paula’s not-so-subtle hints about completing certain jobs around the house, but Philip didn’t realize how much this bothered her until the clothes dryer refused to work, the iron shorted and the sewing machine motor burned out in the middle of a seam. The final straw came when she plugged in the vacuum cleaner and nothing happened.

Paula looked so stricken that he had to offer some consolation.

‘That’s OK, darling,’ Philip said. ‘You still have me.’

Paula looked up at him with tears in her eyes. ‘Yes, Philip,’ she wailed, ‘but you don’t work either.’

Oh my! Some days that is EXACTLY how I feel! lol.

At least my washing machine and drier are still working but my Vacuum did just die on us. And the husband doesn't like to work on his vacation time either.

lol, love the post. My hubs is an owner operator so when he is working he isn't home at all and when he does come home that's his time off and some days he 'really' is off. No only does he not lift a finger but some how the house gets trashed in the meantime?? When he leaves back out it's a full day of getting the house back to normal again...every time. :/
