Proof that men can hear, but listening is selective…
Our Monday Morning Madness:
Me: Ugh, I have a migraine and feel like I’m gonna throw up. Can you pack the lunches?
Husband: ….. …. …
Me: I’m going to grab clothes for the boys. Will you change the baby’s diaper?
Husband: …. .. .. .. [Insert inaudible mumbles]… . ..
Me: We have to leave in t-minus 10 minutes and thing 1 is still in his pj’s.
Husband: [dead air]
Me: Today is our first swimming class so I’m sending thing 1’s swimsuit to daycare so they can change him before I pick him up. Can you just remind them when you drop him off?
Husband: [Insert sound of air moving as he “nods his head” while I’m on a different floor of the house obviously hearing the well known head nod sound.]
Me: Are you listening?
Me: Then why don’t you answer me?
Husband: Grumble grumble…. I heard everything you said, and I saidddd “okay.”
Me: Then you heard when I said there’s a giant purple gorilla lighting your truck on fire?
Husband: I said okayyy!
Me: My face hurts.
Husband: Well, it’s killing me!!! HA HAH AHAHA HAHAHAHHAHAHAH <—SUPER pleased with himself.
Me: I meant from the migraine jackass.
Mmmm, hmmm so they can hear what they want to and answer when they please as well…
