No, this is not a men-bashing blog!!! Absolutely not!
Last night I said to DH: "i have an idea (lol). The first one up makes the coffee, the last one up makes the bed". DH does neither currently, and as I am working longer hours then he, it's only fair, right?
DH's response: "You won't be happy with the coffee or the way the bed is made up; I'll just screw it up". To which I responded "I'll teach you how to do either one, you choose!" Nice try, DH.
So the morning arrives and I stayed in bed, pretending to
, to see if DH bites! Sure enough, DH rises before me. Head to the bathroom, then back to the BR to see if I am still asleep. I "wake up" and say to DH "Guess I get to make up the bed this morning; it will be nice to have the coffee made when I get downstairs". DH looks at me with a s*#t-eating grin and says "well, all I have to do is flip the switch, right? You've got the coffee pot all set up".
HA HA HA NO!!!!! I did not set everything up! I tell him where everything is, and then I wait. I don't smell coffee yet. I go downstairs and say "is everything okay? DH "there's not enough coffee, so it's going to be weak!" WHAT??? There is a fresh can of coffee right next to the pot.
DH uses the last of the old can and somehow misses the new can that he had to lift off of the old can in order to get the scoop out!!!! Seriously????
i stop the brewing, add two more scoops of coffee and set things right. DH says " I told you I would screw it up:".
I said " Well that's a shame; guess I only need to make up my half of the bed today!
