The Cool House: Resentment

Resentment

A tip for The Guy: checking the garage door sensor to see if one of the wires has detached is preferable to telling me (when I'm already in bed) that we need a new garage door opener. It saves you from explaining how you had to open and close said garage door manually (yes, I do know that it's really heavy) and having me patiently explain to you (once more) how to see to the problem. Stating that you will see to it in the morning means you actually have to do just that. Failing to take care of it and LEAVING IT TO ME TO FIX AGAIN leads to wifely resentment. Just saying.
This also applies to the following: lights, alarms and strange noises

don't dis the guy without us hearing both sides! Maybe he was just vocalising? Maybe he wanted to engineer a dialogue just to hear your dulcet tones? You didn't think of that did you?

Projecting again?

spellin bad? you must have meant 'protesting'. Like 'attica,attica' or ' no taxation without representation'

If I were you, I'd go with Nick's 'dulcet tones' theory. You know there's no point in trying to change the system.
