im the exact opposite of that stereotype
Update from this post from February: said mirror that was needed for the master is still leaning against the wall in my office
Wife notifies me at 2am that my parents are coming into town for the weekend and even though they were fine getting a hotel she encouraged them it was fine to stay with us.
I may get a hotel for myself.
I bought my first house in late August 2022. Sent my parents the Zillow listing, finished up signing the papers, went and checked out the house, and then called them to tell them I had closed on it (abt 4 hrs later).
CO Mom: it looks nice. Does it have a garage?
CO: no ma'am, it doesn't. (kind of annoyed bc I had sent them the Zillow listing hours earlier and clearly didn't show any sort of garage).
CO Mom: oh, well could you add a garage?
CO: I mean I guess so but I just bought the house, probably don't need to spend that money right now.
CO Mom: that's fair. What about a carport? Does it have one of those with it?
CO: Mom, did you look at the listing I sent? It clearly doesn't.
CO Mom: well if you don't want the garage, could you add a carport?
CO: *frustrated* I don't know Mom. Maybe, I guess. But can we please move on from where my car will be spending it's nights and discuss where I will be spending my nights?
After one or two comments abt the house.
CO Mom: I looked at the listing and I'm sure you have space for a garage.
CO: Mom, I'm not worried abt it!
CO Mom: Well it's something you should think about.
Mind you, in my entire life, we have never used our garage for anything other than storage. No free space except a walking path through it because so much junk is piled up everywhere.
August 2023? You don't need a garage where you're going
so are we ruling out the garage? Think we might want to explore this a little more at this point
Not my wife but I’m not sure how my wife shares DNA with this person. This is my SiL car. Granted they are half sisters but this is crazy. 22 years old about to graduate from college.
That’s pretty impressive. That coke cup is just holding on for dear life
I appreciate the irony of an unopened shoe organizer stuffed in the middle of that mess
god damn. My wife and I get busy w the kids and we have their shit to shlep around, and it gets bad for my standard but that’s impressive
What user was championing people being in the kitchen underfoot in the holidays thread? Taylor? Get in here and chastise this man!
That looks like my wife’s closet.
In the group text. “It was way worse”
Jumping in late to say that kids are absolutely worth the hassle (but your SO makes a huge difference in that equation)
Kids ruin your life in the best way possible.
I did that all by myself.
This is like one of those games you see at a dive bar where you have to spot certain things.
The Dunkin Donuts on top of a cup that looks like it's a person being trampled definitely stood out.
Good lord - she must be super hot to get away with this shit
On this weeks edition of homeless or hoarder
my kid is 3.5 and will get on to me for leaving my clothes on the floor bc my wife. I’m hoping her cleanliness continues to rub off on him
that'd be great bc then he can clean all your stuff for you
yeah. Im not like super dirty but after a shower I’ll occasionally leave my clothes on the floor and not put it up right away. It’s not quick enough for him.
Wife is currently planting a garden in the backyard of a condo that we pay month/month and will likely exit within the next 2 months.
I started with the "wtf" and shortly caved completely to a "whatever makes you enjoy the space"
sassy 3.5 yo
I've already mentally prepared myself for it but I can't imagine the amount of shit I'm about to have to deal with for MLS and gf to think it's ready for my parents to stay here.
They're going to want it to look like the fucking Four Seasons and neither of my parents remotely care about that.
Those baseboards better be sparkling, pal
Brb, sending a black light to make sure everything's spotless
My wife definitely hits a different stress level when it comes to cleaning before company comes over. I couldn’t imagine Throwing in an additional gf and her stress as well.
god speed sir.
Please elaborate on how it was "Way worse" - I have to know at this point. Like was there an animal in the back or something?
You know i just discovered a new cleaning trigger, having a cleaning lady coming to your house.
Mrs Tittymilk, “can you pre clean for the cleaning lady tomorrow?”
Me the asshole “why am i cleaning up before the cleaner”
Mrs Tittymilk “we are paying her 300 dollars to come deep clean the house”
Me “ i don’t think you are making the argument you think you are”
That's just a nice way of asking you to at least throw your dick sleeve in a drawer
the targeted ads now...
Every other Monday night “the cleaners are coming. We need to clean.”
I was hoping your housekeeper was named Mrs. Tittymilk
she has started cleaning stuff before this picture
Me, sleeping soundly.
Wife: can you let the dog out he’s been bugging me all night and I already let him out several times.
Ten minutes later
Wife’s alarm goes off for work. I’m wide awake. Check the ring notifications, dog was let outside once at 1am. Apparently I’m the asshole for being annoyed.
Tbf she didn't say she let him out several times last night. Gotta stay sharp
I am wishing bad vibes upon you this day
This is for a ~48 hour trip. There are 4 or so more bags by the middle seats too. The backpack is all my stuff.
Gamechanger when your kids grow out of having to carry all that extra shit like a pack n play and stroller
Mine's the opposite. The cleaning lady is coming in four days? Time to start just throwing clothes on the floor and leaving dirty dishes in the sink
Is that a shower mat under the turquoise bag?
Getting your moneys worth
next step is rooftop and or hitch box.
Already been discussed and will happen soon. It’s a good thing we decided to not bring the dogs cause I’m not sure they, crates, etc. would have fit.
Looks like a beach trip, and I wanna see the trip home pics.
Why you ask?
My wife packs the same way for trips and it's always a disaster of just shit everywhere on the return trip
Water park trip at Disney. Actually came back with a decent bit less cause we had a birthday bbq for the kiddo so we had a bunch of food, decorations, etc. for that that all went straight to the trash after. I never saw the true benefit of those video rear-view mirrors until now. So glad my wifes car has it or else wouldn't be able to see shit on trips.
