Wondering why your partner is feeling a little cranky lately?
Wonder why when you’re tapping your wife late at night and she doesn’t move, or looks over at you like you’re George Pell?
It’s not because she’s as hairy as yeti and isn’t interested in sex.
Oh, on the contra mon amie. On the contra. Us women, we love it.
No it’s because she’s exhausted. But I know you know that… I mean I know you heard her say it a million times but but I’m going to break it down for you as to why she’s so exhausted and what she means when she’s saying to her sweet child “no sweetheart, mummy can’t read you another 5 books because mummy has to go hang the clothes otherwise no one will have laundry! Ha ha 😒”
Because her mental load is bigger than your washing pile… and on top of that, there’s a load of cleaning to do.
Every day and every night.
Before you go to tap her on the shoulder because your peen is doing the electric boogaloo in your pants, ask yourself… have I helped out today?
Or Have I eaten dinner and then disappeared to the toilet for five hours as soon as dinner is done and conveniently missed all the dishes being done? Because I’m pretty sure that’s the reason why she snaps at you and everyone else like a rubber band.
Because making the doctors appointments, the dentists, organising the bills, gift buying, school meetings, socialising – uh I’m tired making this list, isn’t enough for her load, she’s gotta cook dinner too and then clean up afterwards as well.
And that toilet you’re talking a long ass shit on? Guess who’s scrubbing it? You got it.
So why doesn’t she ask for help? “Ohhh if she wants help she’s just gotta say it” (insert stupid voice here)
Because mate, she shouldn’t have to ask you, or anyone in the bloody house.
Do you live here? Do you eat off that plate? So it’s your job too honey.
She doesn’t need to remind you, tell you, or give you a list, because you’re an adult who lives in a house… together! Crazy, I know, And it’s also crazy because, no ones giving her lists, because last I checked, with or without glasses, we can all see the fucking mess, so why is only one of us concerned while the other one walks over it like they’re going on a bear hunt?
Say it with me real slow okay, if 👏🏻 your 👏🏻 wife 👏🏻 does 👏🏻more 👏🏻doesn’t 👏🏻 mean 👏🏻 you 👏🏻 do 👏🏻 less 👏🏻🖕🏻(sorry finger slipped)
And when you feel that urge to sit down when the house is a bomb site, fight it, fight it real hard, because otherwise, you’ll be fighting for your relationship, and there are plenty of others out there that can control their bowel movements until after they’ve finished clearing the dinner table.
