Home honey do you hate doing the most
« on: May 22, 2016, 06:38 PM »
For me, that's easy.  Cleaning out my shared closet.  Pulling clothes out, having to try them on, finding out you're too fat to fit in half your pants and shorts, sorting through shoes, shirts, etc.   [crying] [crying]  Mainly it's because I don't care.  I just work around it.  The missus, however, has another agenda...  How about you guys?  Anything you would crawl through a pile of fire ants rather than doing?

Well, with the list now being numerous of pages long on legal pads I just run when I see the pad come out  [eek]

My hairs stand on end when a want, wish, or desire comes before a need.

generally speaking, my motto is now "if it's worth doing, it's worth paying someone to get it done".

If it's good enough to get done, it's good enough to get done right.  Necessities before nice-to-haves.  It's always bugged me that there's never enough time to do it right, but there's always time to do it over.  My ex never seemed to get that concept.  Maybe that's why she's my ex...

Mine is "If a man was meant to do it, there would be a power tool".

Usually end up receiving "the look" and being handed a rake or shovel.

For whatever reason I wind up with a Honey Do List on a daily basis
I give it a shot and then usually get detoured to something I want to do so maybe that's the reason for my daily list. Oh well slow and steady

Am I the only one who doesn't understand the thread title? I get the gist of the thread but the title confused me...

Bob,

For once we cause confusion on your side of the pond.  The list compiled by my loving wife is called a "Honey Do List."  As in "Honey Do This Please" and "Honey Do That Please."  So I assume that Howard was referring to the Honey Do List for things to do around the home so there might be a "Home Honey Do List" as well as a "Car Honey Do List", etc in his household.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Peter. I'm normally pretty good on my Americanisms, but this one sort of escaped me.

The changing of mind -  of a recent project - "I've decided it needs to be longer".  Work time wasted. And then later - "Why is it taking you so long to finish that!"  [eek]

If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

That's what really gets me.  I have an Apple that requires very little maintenance/troubleshooting, but she will not give up her
beloved PC.  I never used Windows 10, so when she gets in a jam, it takes me a long time to figure out what's up. [embarassed]

I feel your pain. I have wasted the past few nights trying to "fix" Windows 7. How do you fix something that is broken to begin with. She hates to tell me that it won't boot or won't shutdown or won't ....... or always .....

I tell her the only way to keep Windows working properly is to never use it.  I never have to do anything to my Linux install.

HowardH,

I am with you on the closet thing. I returned from a three year deployment to find that my 1/3rd of the closet space had been reduced to 1/6th.

As for the honey do list, I am slowly getting through it. Funny thing, important stuff like exterior caulking is not a mutual priority.

Fortunately things like making a bedside table for my mother-in-law (who has early Alzheimer's and is in a long term care facility where the furniture is worn out junk) is on both of our lists.

Bingo.  Right on the money!  Doing the dishes also ranks right up there...
