Husband's holiday preparations

At 6.30 this evening Husband said, 'Why haven't you washed my fleece?'
'I didn't know it needed washing. It wasn't in the dirty clothes basket.'
'No, it was on the floor in the corner of the bedroom. Please wash it.'
'What now?'
'Yes, please, I want to take it with me tomorrow.'

So I put the washing machine on.

At 7.15 Husband came in and said, 'I need this shirt washing too.'
'Your fleece has already started being washed.'
'Well, I need this too.'
'So you want me to wash it now?'
'Yes, please. I want to take it with me.'

Yep, men arefrom Mars, the blighters. At least he is deciding to take stuff. My husband usually says I only need one pair of pants or one sweater or.... No you need at least two, what if one gets wet or..... Anyway mine is all packed up and ready to go on his way this evening. Remember passport and ticket, for everything else there is Mastercard. It's not the wild frontier you know.

How could he???!!
Isn't it funny how washing is our job? After all those poor women chained themselves to railings and suchlike for us, turning the dials on the washing machine is still our domain! Sad really.
