If you are in a relationship or are married then you have probably heard that annoying phrase, “I don’t do that,” out of their mouth. This is a quote that I hear on a regular basis. There seems to be a lot of things that my significant other won’t can’t do. Now you may be one of those extremely delusional lucky women/men that think that you balance each other out and that they may not do something at the moment you ask them to, but they make up for in other ways. Well, if that is you then I am happy *rolling my eyes* that you have that kind of support system, but for me in my house, that kind of support just doesn’t exist.
This morning I was getting my daughter ready for school, so feeling a little overwhelmed I was yelling asking my husband nicely to get back out of bed to change the baby’s diaper and get him dressed so that we could take our daughter to school. So as a typical morning I am doing my daughter’s hair and asked my husband to put the baby’s shoes and socks on, well he pipes up,
“I don’t do shoes.”
Wwhhaatt!?? That make no sense to me!!@!
“Husband, do you wear shoes?”
”Um, well, yay,”
“well then you do shoes!!”
Lord grant me the strength. “I don’t do shoes,” can you imagine, if I could get away with the phrase, “I don’t do that, “ then I am pretty sure that I would be on a permanent vacation on a tropical resort, being served by hot half naked men. These are some others that I hear quite often, I don’t change diapers, I don’t do laundry, I don’t do silverware, I don’t cook like you and I don’t want to screw it up, that one is special. All I know is that my son will NOT be following in his father’s footsteps. Whomever gets my boy will be indebted to me forever!
Do you have any funny yet annoying phrase that your husband or significant other says to you? Do you have a “I don’t do that,” example?
