Bloody Wife !!!!!!

Over the new year holiday I painted the living room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, and cloakroom.

Went back to work Wednesday, but the wife wanted the bedroom and the hallway painted. Havn't felt like painting after work, but promised to find time to do it.

Came home tonight to find the wife had attempted to paint the bedroom !!!!!!!!

Patchy paint, white skirting painted over, artex ceiling painted on, brush and roller left with paint on (drying), paint on carpet, and she only attempted one wall

Why couldn't she just leave it for once !!!!!!!


Aaarrgghhhh !!!!!!

I'm on the Cider and getting drunk tonight.

Fat Stig Rafe is my hero !!!
99 Problems but a bi-atch isn't one !!! Vincent is !!
Shut Up Bradders !

Re: Bloody Wife !!!!!!

Just be glad I didn't do it for you.

I like the method of a small explosive in the paint tins and run from the room. Makes nice effect

EDIT: omg my typing has gone to pot lol

Re: Bloody Wife !!!!!!

They are all the same if it's any consolation. Wives are nature's own supervisors and inspectors. They come up with the lists of work that suck up your holidays and any "spare" time then pick fault in it and claim you don't do enough around the house in th enext breath!

Re: Bloody Wife !!!!!!

Gf Annie is a great cook in any style and she paints really well too.

All that's left for me to do is the 'blokey' and mysterious stuff that girlies don't understand, like a bit of wiring here and there, installing things (without reading the manual of course), drilling holes in the wall and hanging things, very basic plumbing and currently, helping her to choose, plan and connect up her new TV and surround system.

I'm very good at standing back to admire any handiwork too, whether it be hers or mine!

Re: Bloody Wife !!!!!!

She is pretty good at DIY apart from the boredom factor -only ever does half a job before moving onto the next

Sounds very familiar, in their mind every job can be done in 2 minutes.

God thats generous - normally thinks 30 secs is enough time to build an extension.

No she just leaves everything half completed before moving of to the next job.

Re: Bloody Wife !!!!!!

I wouldn't let a fella near the walls in my house! Have always done the emulsioning, glosswork, plastering etc myself - I do a far better job

Re: Bloody Wife !!!!!!

It's a very old trick that women use, in order to get a man to do something. They try it themselves and do it wrong on purpose, when the man sees it he is supposed to rant first ,pick up the brush (in this example) and do it properly.

Its just a female ruse.

Dont fall for it.


Just say 'thats wonderful darling' and LEAVE IT, eventually they will do it properly themselves.





I think I may be a sexist.
