Marriages are a lot of work. Which is why it is important to have a good sense of humour and have a bit of fun every once in a while. And Twitter user DocAtCDI’s wife seems to be an expert. He recently tweeted how she outsmarted him and got him to get her snacks from the kitchen in the most genius way possible.
My wife and I are sitting on the couch watching tv and I hear a text, realizing I left my phone in the kitchen, I get up, go to the kitchen to check it…
and its a text from my wife:
Please bring the chips on your way back

Many shared similar stories about their parents or kids, take a look.
I ain’t telling Dani about this. Nope, no way. She would feel obligated to top it in some way. Now it’s “Honey I have a cat sleeping in my lap, could you (fill in the blank)? She and that cat have successfully hoodwinked me for years.

COVID communication. I text my husband in the other room all the time. I don’t need, need to see him 24/7. I treat the work day as if he is not in the house.

Last night my husband decided that it would be funny to send one word texts at a time to our teenager asking for something… snacks, water, dinner etc… I don’t think we laughed so hard when he threatened to block us 😂😂

This reminds me of a story about the late, great & dearly missed Peter Sellers. One day when he and his wife were working in separate rooms at home, the Mrs. got up to answer the doorbell. It was a telegram delivery, and the cable read: “PLEASE BRING ME A CUP OF TEA. – PETER.”

My daughter when 6 asked me to stand up at a family Christmas dinner table, then said while u up get more bread, when I asked why she can’t get the bread she said well your all ready up. My back problems are from being wrapped around her finger not from work

My husband and I once had a fight while in the same room, over text, because our daughter was present. She sent us a group text asking us to take our issue elsewhere. We couldn’t stop laughing. Can’t hide, I guess
