This after I've fed, dressed and entertained the two kids, gotten myself showered, dressed, fed, and taken care of the dog all while he sits in the bed or couch watching TV.

Don't be like that.

I don't want to fight.

Can you run an iron over this shirt? If not, no big deal. I'll wear something else.

Wait, there's more!

Wanna fool around/have sex/go upstairs?

Don't go there.

There's a stop sign up ahead.

Didn't you already DO the grocery shopping this week?

another haircut, already?

so, if your boobs have fallen into your armpits, do you put deoderant on them? (it is amazing the man is still alive!)

I don't know what you're talking about, the truck is running fine for me.

Why do I have to call the mechanic? There's nothing wrong with the truck. (ongoing theme here....)

Do I have work clothes? (No, because you did not put them in the laundry.)

chicken, again?

I did the dishes. (No, did you notice I did them the other 6 days of the week?)

After 30+ years of marriage, you'd think I'd have more. Most of them I just ignore....or I tell him "now I understand why your Mom used to say that she just blocked out your Dad as soon as he opened his mouth"! Always gets a rise....

EDIT: my husband just called. He stopped at Walmart. Asked me if I needed anything. My response was, "pads, feminine wipes, tampons"... & before I could go any further, he was hysterical! Refused to shop my list :) So, I'll add one more: I'm at Walmart, do you need anything?

What did you do all day?

((HUGE difference between that, which implies nothing, and 'What did you do today?' being interested in their day))

The DEATH knell, btw, (which you should know, J.! Being as you're on that end of it!) is the working parent to the SAHP saying that after looking around the house. The stop, look around, 'WDYDAD?" should come along with a fine. Like a $500 fine, and childminding for 48 hours straight while the at home parent takes 2 days to remind themselves that really, homicide might not yet be necessary.

1. You haven't been home all day! I have. (no I've been in an office with four grown men who can't do anything without me either!)

2. Another GS meeting? (yes, another one!)

3. I don't understand why you're griping at me it's not my fault?! (well who else is going to just sit there and not listen? the kids?)

4. I have job! (like I don't!)

5. My all time favorite was wedding planning...I said "did you pick out your tuxes?"...he said "no yet"...me "well you should do that since it's getting closer"...he said "well I would do it if it was something I really wanted to do"...

yep...I saw him reach for the words as soon as they came out!

But there are some he could say but rarely does!

1. You are such a great mom!
2. You look great today!

Saying those would take away all the others! Except 5 he'll never live that one down.

Umm..well if you want to reap the benefits then yes - yes I do. If you want to sleep on the couch for the next week while I have my own little "dirty girl party" sans you - then keep up the snark.

Can you tell how my evening went last night? lol

You remind me of my mother (or your mother*). *Whoever is more odious.*

You sound just like my ex-wife./Wow. That was even nastier than my ex could manage. *Any comparison, direct or oblique, to any ex-wife or ex-girlfriend.*

Anything to do with weight/weighing/dieting.

Are you pregnant? *My father’s advice was always ‘unless you see the baby physically exiting the woman’s body, keep your mouth shut.’*

You look nice. *Really? That's the best you can muster? Did you even flipping look before trying to cut off the infamous 'how do I look question'?? Unless I'm going to ancient Aunt Harriet's funeral with you, you'd best muster up a better dang compliment than that.*

Is that all you did today?

You're eating that? OR You're ordering that?

I second " that's not the way my ---- did it."

That was the song that my ex and I always danced to.

I know I promised to go to ----- with you but is it okay to go ------ instead?

It's only a hallmark holiday anyway.

Added:
My daughter stopped by and said:
of course I love her she's the mother of my children.

You're not my mother why do I need to get you a Mother's Day gift?

Another pair of shoes!!!!?????!!!!!

This is fun!

1) You just need to organize yourself better- (Husband saying this to his Wife while she is venting to him about what she does ALL day 24/7 as a Mom & Household "manager," with 2 kids and while he is just sitting there on the couch watching tv saying he is hungry & he needs to relax).

2) You are so emotional- ( same scenario as above)

3) ----- (crickets chirping) as the Wife asks her Husband "Does this look nice on me?" and he looks like a deer in headlights

4) Why are you so busy?- (same scenario as #1)

5) You're lucky you get to stay home all day- (same scenario as #1)

6) "I washed the dishes!"- (Husband saying this to the Wife as though he does this everyday and therefore she should be thankful. Like it is doing her a favor). Meanwhile, he thinks he did enough to last the entire month.

7) "Why don't you exercise too, you just have to manage your time better." - (same scenario as #1).

Whenever I got mad about anything, my ex would say "Awww, does someone need a grilled cheese sandwich?" Implying that the reason I'm mad must be because I'm hungry/low blood sugar. Never because of anything he did. *eye roll* There's a reason he's my ex, LOL!

And, "Why do the kids need new clothes again?" (Uh, the 9 year old is over 5 feet tall... why do you THINK she needs new clothes? Maybe I should just have her wear last year's shorts, which look like hot pants since she grew another 4 inches this year!)

While in the car on the way to some event, after scrambling to get 3 kids and hubby in the car, "Uh, so Kate, why didn't you put on any makeup?" "Because I've been too busy trying to get your kids and you ready to leave, I had no time for me! Now stop driving over the potholes so I can put on my mascara!"

I'm actually cool with number 3, but my husband is the only one who an say that to me. I wouldn't mind number 1 if he could tell me in what particular way. There's a way to say all of those (to me) and still be on my good side.

- How long until you're ready to walk out the door? (I'm already in a rush. don't make me have to stop pulling my pants up to focus on the time. Ask me again when I'm applying my mascara. I'll have a better idea then.)
- How do you keep stopping up the toilet? (I don't know, and I don't mean to, so let's not talk about it. Just know that I'm sorry.)
- I'm gonna take the baby out for a bit; you might want to use your time wisely. (However the hell I choose to spend this rare moment of FREE is necessary for my sanity, so shut up and direct your own traffic.)
- He's fussing again. Why don't you feed him? (You think I haven't thought of that?)
- Do you need a larger size? (I know it, and you know it. No one needs to say the words aloud.)
- Are you watching that? (If I am sitting in front of the TV, then assume that I am watching whatever is on. Don't come over expecting to change it to golf.)
- I'd like to do xyz. Do you have a problem with that? (Are you trying to start a fight? How about "Do we have any conflicts on the calendar?")

I am probably the easy one. Don't point out anything negative that I do not have it in my ability to correct in a reasonable amount of time. In other words don't bring something to my attention that is going to cause me to dwell on it for hours since I can't fix it. :p

When she is cooking dinner, after being busy all day either with the kids or at her full time job, walking in and saying "oh" as in "that's what we are having". Don't like it, too bad that is what you are going to eat-or you can cook your own food

You really should get more sleep.
It only takes a couple of minutes to...clean, sweep, dust, etc. Then do it yourself since it only takes a couple of minutes.

My worst verbal slip. "When are you due?" She looked 9 months along and had just grabbed her stomache like she was having a contraction. She said, "I'm NOT pregnant. I just have bad cramps." And then glared at me.

oops!

Its fun to read some of yours goofs. I'm so glad I haven't done those. But I did laugh or goan at some of them.

Good luck to you and yours.

My first ex-husband-"If I had met your mom first, I would have tried to date HER"

EDIT: Current husband- about to be ex #2, when he would ask why the house was a mess and I answered that it was because I work and when I get off work, I run errands, pick up the kids, grocery shop and go to the chiropractor 2-3x a week. I would say,"You are here, you arent doing anything and you get off work before I do. Why don't you do it?"
His answer "My job is harder than yours, I'm tired" WTFlip!!!!!

Having listened to my problem of the moment, he would say "Oh, you should JUST.... ."

Took us a while to figure out that I just wanted him to listen and he just wanted to be ever helpful. So if I don't want a solution, I say so BEFORE I share my frustration about something.

Fun question. I've enjoyed reading all the answers.

My husband and I (at the time he was my boyfriend) were sitting on the couch and I was trying to snuggle with him, but he must not have been in the mood and he said to me in an annoyed voice, "Can't you just lie there"? I was very hurt that night, but it has since become a joke between us. He knew as soon as he said it he shouldn't have, but it was too late.

When we were newlyweds, we had a lot of friends also getting married. My new husband would give them advice, that if their further in-laws family was crazy, they should dump the girl. It was definitely a slap in the face b/c my side of the family had given us a rough, crazy time and it was shocking to hear that his suggestion was to just walk away.
