    Currently ripping out the shower room due to damp, and I’ve told the wife she has final say on tiles, sanitary ware and such like.
    I’ve told her what sort of shower tray she needs but she needs to pick the design.
    Why, oh why, oh why is she trying to tell me how to fit the bloody stuff.
    She’s never picked up a even a paintbrush since I’ve known her so what makes her all knowing about plumbing?
    She’s moaning about the outside of the windows not getting a top coat of paint even though it’s been raining on the days I’ve had free.
    The list goes on.

    Are all wive’s like this?

    No.

    But given how much hassle a divorce is, you’ll just need to keep bending over by the sounds of things though 🙂

    yes. You are wrong, she is right. Just accept it and say ‘yes Dear’ in a patronising voice.

    There’s no need to raise your voice!

    You need to appreciate woman’s effort and thank her for input. Buy her flowers and do your DIY whatever you like.

    Women only get too fussy if they don’t get right attention. Fix her right and be the King.

    Ha ha we dont have ‘opinions’ we just ‘know’ how everything should be 🙂

    (Disclaimer – I am not a wife so cant speak with any real authority and luckily for me I only have to be the bread winner and do everything in my house the job of ‘knowing’ everything goes to my eldest son 🙄 )

    Yes.

    I have known my wife for 13 years. In that time she has had an opinion on everything and gas never been wrong. Ever.

    Does anyone know the answer to the following philosophical conundrum:

    If a man makes a statement, and there isn’t a woman around to hear it, is he still wrong?

    We’ve recently moved to a new house, and my current headache is understanding a new set of ‘rules’ that applies to the new house.

    If I’m home alone, she comes in and tells me what I haven’t done correctly, i.e. “you’ve left the kitchen door open”, “you should be using the lamp, not the main light”. All hell breaks loose if I forget to switch the kettle off at the wall.

    I get moaned at because I don’t wash up straight away after eating (I prefer to digest a bit and relax after dinner)…if I do wash up, she turns up grumbles a bit then rearranges everything on the draining board as I haven’t assembled the dishes correctly.

    I sometimes try to help hang the washing out too…usually everything I hang is wrong and has to be redone.

    It doesn’t help that it’s Angry Week at the moment.

    I do think it’s quite ironic that people are posting on stw expressing surprise that someone might have an opinion on everything whether they know anything about it or not 😉

    its why god made bikes and hills

    If my wife interfered like that I’d politely offer her the most appropriate tool and pop the kettle on. Surprisingly quick learner.

    If a man feels the need to ask such a stupid question……

    Just a tip gents.

    DO NOT, EVER, record your wife’s statements for posterity or to produce them in the highly unlikely event she will contradict herself. Even if she dares you to do it after you’ve pointed out it happens quite a lot.

    Don’t.

    It is apparently entirely possible to say one thing one day, an opposing thing the next day and still be right both days. Apparently.

    What I tend to do is agree enthusiastically with everything she says & then do just do exactly what I want anyway when the time comes.

    Why are you even listening to her?

    Just remember she can’t talk with her mouth full

    Haaaha you have fallen in the trap of actually “listening to your Wife”.

    If you blank them out, they go away, well they get louder before the go away but eventually they go away of thier own accord.

    You need to know that fact first before applying any Bloke logic to anything.

    Most things I can live with, but that one I can’t.

    What do people think happens if you don’t turn off the wall socket on a kettle !?

    You get an earful from your partner?

    To be fair, there have been endless public information films about turning stuff off at the wall before retiring to bed so there must be some benefit to the process.

    I have an opinion

    Curtain or a blind would be a good idea for the ‘new’ bathroom 😀

    And ‘yes’

    Yes you get up in the morning and put the kettle on and some toast and come back 5 mins later to find cold water and bread.

    You are asking the wrong question.

    What you should be asking is:

    “Why do I bother having opinions myself? Surely I should just let my wife determine my opinions – it would save a lot of aggravation?”

    There are two ways of doing things in the world. Mrs Breatheeasys way. And the wrong way.

    Though I have discovered a way to annoy her when she’s right. Just saying “Yes, darling” in a kinda resigned way to everything she says is really starting to wind her up proper. It’s the little things that keep a relationship sweet…

    Just saying “Yes, darling” in a kinda resigned way to everything she says is really starting to wind her up proper.

    We’ve been married for nearly 18 years.

    The phrase “Yes, dear” is forbidden because I can ‘no longer say it without sounding long suffering and put upon’.

    All that effort paid off in the end 🙂

    No.1 son piped up in the middle of a discussion, “No mum, Dad’s right you did say that.”

    Poor sod, the naivety of youth.

    Mrs flicker treds lightly when I’m destroying the house, I can be a little volatile when things aren’t going my way, and there’s always room for another patio….

    I decided to get unmarried just for this reason.

    She made a decision that directly affected my happiness with absolutely no information at all to reach that decision.

    I thought it best not to let that happen again.

    I’ve be very happy ever since

    I also have to unplug the microwave…the thing has a clock on it that starts at 12:00.

    “So you used the microwave 2 hours ago did you”

    Yes, very clever…you’re like Poirot. I’ll make sure I switch it off next time.

    Reset the time on the microwave so that it looks like the last person to use it was her as you were out of the house at the time: “Not just me who doesn’t switch it off then!”

    Never seen a single one of them 😐

    so there must be some benefit to the process.

    I will refuse to believe that unless my kettle attacks the house and kills it.
