What the Hell Wednesday













Lately, my husband has been home in the mornings to "help" me get the kids ready for school. Notice the quotes. That's because when I say help, I really mean get in my way, make everything take twenty minutes longer than it needs to and give me another person that I have to listen complain before 7 am. Say for instance I make pancakes for the kids one morning. Now on this particular morning, the six year old decided he didn't like syrup. I don't know why. Anyway, my normal response would be, well eat your pancakes without them or starve until lunch. Cause I'm that kind of mom. My husband's response was to pull out another pan and make him eggs instead. What the hell? Now I have an additional pan to clean as well as having lost all the time it took him to make the eggs. Thanks for the "help" hun. Also telling me that I have to get up earlier even with the extra help so we can get out the door ontime, not helpful.


So apparently I am having a baby shower. Now this wasn't a surprise. Having a large and loving family, I had a good idea that one was going to be planned at some point. However, already knowing the location does not bode well for their surprise giving abilities. Of course involved in the planning are my sister-in-law and my husband, two of the worst secret keepers in the history of secret keeping. So should I just pretend to not know or should they just give up on the whole surprise thing?


The other day I was sent a message online from a random Julio Rodriguez that said "love that last name cuz its mine" What the hell? Does he send messages like that to all the Rodriguezes on Facebook? Cause I'm guessing I'm not the only Rodriguez on Facebook. Really he must be seriously hard up for friends and family if that's the best he could do.


I thought this sign was particularly appropriate for What the Hell Wednesday. Feel free to join in on the free flowing bitchfest by linking up with the Blue Monkey Butt Sisters.

I LOVE that little sign! LOL!
My husband "helps" with stuff all the time. It's a PITA. Pain In The Ass.

yeah i tried to convince them that intelligence + two previous children = no surprise but alas they still wanted to go for it, so work on a good surprise face ok?

lmbo how is it their 'help' is always our hinderance.. Men just do things totally different from us.

LOL!! I absolutely love the hubs help! Mine helps by turning the tv on so the kids are watching tv instead of eating their breakfast and then it's always a fight of who gets to go in the bathroom after him..we all know men stink up that room!

Fabulous post!!

Make him eggs instead? Srsly? I hate that kind of "help" too. Its amazing how smooth things run with only one "cook" in the kitchen, so to speak.

Ian said...

At least he does offer to help. On a side note I'm not one of those dumb assess who doesn't know how to help. Momma raised me right...then she dropped me on my head LOL

well then hypothetically speaking, if you were to have a shower (though i heard it was called a sprinkle for the 2nd child and on) who would you invite? and what are their addresses? hypothetically speaking of course

OMG. It's a genetic thing, I swear. A man enters a kitchen, a pan automatically becomes dirty.

Pamela said...

lol i have no idea what you are talking about

kden said...

PITA! Love it. Yep, I got me one of those too. Love your sign too.

mama-face said...

Bwahahaha. That sign is the best.

I would definitely go with the surprise act. Clearly they enjoy it! :)

haha. I know someone IRL named JULIE "fill in the blank". Maybe you know her?

:D

I just love when your husband "helps" you! I dread the days when my husband is home in the morning, it just totally screws up my morning! I would go with the surprise thing too.

Thanks for joining us today!

I'm with on the husband thing. SO not helpful. SO in the way. Why are they SO useless???

shortmama said...

My hubs "helps" the same way!


I WANT that sign!!!

ScoMan said...

I get the same sort of "Help" from my coworkers. They come over and volunteer to help because the don't want to do their own job and they want to fill their timesheet in, and then expect me to explain the simplest of tasks to them over and over again so that my job will be done quicker.

It doesn't work.

I didn't get a message from that Rodriguez guy.. but then, my surname isn't Roriguez.

You can understand maybe sending a message to someone with exactly the same name as yours.. or at least just doing a check of how many of you there are on Facebook. Come on, we've all done that one.

hahahahaaa! Love your sign!

Jennifer Haas said...

You are cracking me up. I don't know if that is what you trying to do with your post.

I would do and say the same thing to my husband if he did that too.

Unknown Mami said...

The sign at the end is awesome, but it makes me wish that life was a slut.

I have a very common Latino last name as well and if someone sent me a message like that I'd think they were weird.
