After 35 years of marriage I should not be surprised

I Know It Is Trouble|

when she says, "I have a thought!" This usually ends with me going out to my canoeshed to hide! I usually loose this battles which is why I am so glad to have a safe haven to run to! If I stay there long enough I am convinced she will have lost track of whatever idea she had but like I said I usually loose!
Same problem here...|

...but with a different twist. I'LL be on a project I've wanted to do and the wife will slowly butt in and take over. Examples; Bulkhead door's and frame work was rotting away. So I got out all the lumber, tool's, skillsaw, ruler, hammer, ect. A lovely early summer day. 15 minutes into it she's over giving 'advice'. Then it just progress's to where I get pissed and walk away. 15 minutes later she's bored and quit's, I go back and finnish job.

Lots of thing involved in two people living together that end up getting picked up disproportionately, if you really look hard at day to day life. But it usually evens out. The diff is that men's gripes have long become the fodder of comedians and women's gripes are considered to be uninteresting.

My wife got my youngest and his wife to do it! (at least one wall so far) The river gods most be rewarding me for all the hats I have sacrificed to them...
