Marriage 501, Lecture 120: Too many chiefs
SH: Hey! The bathroom floor is wet!
Me: Yes. I just washed it.
SH: But I wanted to take a shower.
Me: So take a shower.
SH: But the rugs are in the hall!
Me: Put them back. They'll be OK.
SH: No, you put them back once I'm in the shower.
I ignored him, of course, and went on about my business, which was trying to vacuum the cat hair off the rug, a battle that will never end until the cats are dead, which I hope is a long time from now. Still, it would be nice to genetically engineer a non-shedding cat. I would have to clean about 99% less if we didn't have cats. 99.5% less if I didn't have a husband.
As I am vacuuming:
SH: There's no bathmat here!
Me: I know.
SH: But I told you to move it.
Me: And I told you to move it first.
SH: But I changed that plan.
Me: If you want to be in charge of all housecleaning, go ahead.
SH: I don't want to be in charge. I just want to micromanage.
