Husband on Strike?

This husband is on strike. My only question is, "And how would that be different from not being on strike?" I bet his wife is happy he's on the roof. If I were her, I'd put the ladder away in the garage. One less person to pick up after.

(This is no way reflects on my husband, who happens to be a great husband and father. I offer this proof of his superiority to all other men: he plays Pooh-Bear Candyland every night with my daughter so I don't have to.) Sure, he wants me to iron his pants (*gasp* OH THE HORRORS OF THE PATRIARCHY!!) but honestly, everyone has to make some sacrifices and that's mine.

Candyland *every* night?! You should give him a prize or a trophy or something. Dang, that is serious love. I am not even kidding.

[snicker snicker] That's funny! If I were that wife, I'd pitch him some shingles and tar and tell him to patch those spots by the chimney that peeled up during the last thunderstorm... heh

My own Prince Charming is a great dad; I have no complaints in that department. He may be a little chilly in the romance department, but the tradeoff for me is that he isn't clingy or jealous and lets me pursue what I love doing (music & art) without complaining. There's a lot to be said for that kind of freedom.

I'm absolutely howling. I love my hubby to death, but he is a SLOB. If he pitched a fit and climbed up on the roof, I probably would hide the ladder for a day or two. I've considered going on strike myself in hopes that he would be so dismayed by his self-created mess that he'd start cleaning it up. (I still believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, too)

No serious, Candyland - every night?

He is a keeper!

Nice publicity stunt. I bet the wife is in on it.

Candyland is the ultimate sacrifice. I make it frequently and it's nothing to sneeze at. The cards always end up in the "wrong order" so you get the ice cream cone first and then the ginger bread man way at the end and you just have to keep starting over. That game is the bane I tell you, the bane.

As far as I am concerned, ironing is the ultimate sacrifice. You are a better woman than I am. ;)

I, personally, would much rather iron every night, then play Candyland, even once!

I rather enjoy ironing, unless I have to as a last minute thing like getting ready for church or a wedding or something and suddenly it's "this shirt is wrinkled" or 'My pants have no crease' then I hate it :)


As for Candyland? Start early!

I cannot believe what I just read...

Is he serious? Is she serious? Oh my goodness. I am very thankful right now for my Mr. Right. At least he understood that there is some give and take in a marriage, and I am not the sole parent.

Good night nurse! I lump this in with your blog thoughts yesterday.

Bewildering...

But you do have a keeper! Candyland stand-in. That would be worth the ironing.

I find it fascinating that the GoogleAds that pop up on husband-on-strike's site are all porn-related. GoogleAd lets you select the nature of your ads, after all.

This tells me two things. One, our striking hubby has a difficult time connecting on any truly intimate level with women, his wife included; and, two, its the closest he'll be getting to it for a while, because, were I his wife, I'd pull his butt off the roof and soundlyl kick it straight to the curb.

If he wants the bedroom clean, why doesn't he pick it up his own damn self!!!

Sorry.... Just had a marriage flashback there.... I'm fine. (It's a little like finding yourself on a rice patty in 'Nam, only without the gunfire and the good drugs.)

Actually, Google ads are based on the content of the text inside the site. So too much discussion of husbands and wives apparently twig the "porn" ads... interesting!

I want to mention that the "husband on strike" is a convicted sex offender. Against a minor child. Not only is he a bad husband and bad father, he's apparently a creep - and STUPID, to boot!

One would think a convicted sex offender would want to NOT call attention to himself.

Whining loser. Better he be on the roof than in his wife's bed, anyway!
