    It's not just that no one else can put anything away, but it's that you get punished for being able to. They don't bother looking for their own scissors, tape, stapler, etc... who knows where the hell those are, right? But hey, daddy always keeps his in that drawer in the back porch. So they head straight for your and next time you yourself go to get your stuff it's disappeared into the ether.

    Need some fresh batteries? Hey, daddy usually keeps some fresh batteries in his flashlight...you know, the one he wrote on, "Do not take!!! For emergencies only!!!"

    I know where everything is when I put it away, regardless if it was today or last year.

    Nothing worse than coming home and hearing "I cleaned your office today"

    That's another thing. Goddamn kids playing with flashlights.
    By playing with, I mean playing with it for 5 minutes, then leaving it on and abandoning it.

    This.

    And worse, when her friend is in town and she's cleaning the house, it's like an angry cleaning where valuable stuff gets tossed. She has tossed out:


    - A Fedex Envelope containing an entire season's worth of Jets season tickets (before email/scanning @ the stadium)
    - Jets playoff tickets
    - My Blackberry
    - Who the f-ck knows what else


    I've just decided to roll with it. For my health and safety.

    wife is of dutch heritage - all that stuff about the dutch being neat as a pin and sweeping their porches and sidewalks twice a day is true. she comes from a town in the midwest where most people are of dutch ancestry (windmill in the park, dutch festival every summer etc)

    the good news - our house always look like it's open house day. the bad news, if i leave one frigging whisker on the bathroom sink after shaving, it's heart attack time.

    My wife is so fastidious, if I get up at night to take a leak, when I come back she has the bed made.

    I'm banned from making the bed or folding laundry - since I apparently lack the skillz.

    Mrs FF2® instituted a ridiculous basket system.

    Baskets everywhere. She just throws everything in a basket. So if you want to find ANYTHING you need to look through 15 baskets. That's her idea of organizing.

    I just want to find ONE GODDAM WORKING PEN to do the Sunday crossword.

    Well played. Do something so inept, you'll be off the hook for doing it forever.

    Oldest trick in the book. They catch on. I used to "accidentally" break sh:t when doing the dishes. Then she served me dinner on 6 pieces of broken plate, and the unspoken agreement was that I wouldn't be breaking sh:t when doing the dishes any more.
