Does Your Husband Hate To Use The Phone?


I don't think mine will hate to use it anymore. My DH asked me to call and get some SAND, you see we are having a building built, for our workshop. Well I called and ordered SAND, 8 loads of SAND.


My DH was working his 12 hour shift and they start coming at 7:30am with the SAND, he told me to order. Well on the last load the guy in the dump truck said, "Mame are you putting a slab here?" and I said "Yes." He then tells me with all the sand in the spot of the slab, "Well we usually deliver 60/40 for slabs."


I panicked and called my DH and asked, "What did you want delivered?" He said at that time in a lovely voice, "Sand, 60/40". I told him he didn't tell me to put 60/40 on the end of SAND.....


His lovely voice wasn't so lovely when he said "WHY"?


Oh well to make a long story short, I told him he had to do the calling for the rest. It's kinda like when they work on a car and ask if you can go get a part and they write it down for you. You go, but in the back of your mind you know the automotive place is going to ask you a question you can't answer.

Ok I can really get into this post because my husband hates, hates, hates to use the phone. I wrote 3 paragraphs on this subject in this comment, which I have now deleted - if that tells you anything. :) I don't understand men, never have, never will. Blessings, marlene

I ordered concrete once. Same situation! Now I know better. I order for us, but if he`s doing a job for somebody else it`s HIS phone call! So funny!

I don't miss a husband. But I do have a 22 yr old male at home that hates talking on the phone.
Well I guess you could use the sand they delivered to make your own beach.

Men never get it. A man explained it to me once. They think with one part of their brain at a time.
And we think with many parts at a time. So, why are they considered superior ? I'll never know.

Women rule.

hi Bonnie,
I think that maybe the men should just do it. I did laugh, sorry. Thanks for visiting me. I like frogs, but don't really collect them. I'm trying to cut back on STUFF. I had a frog bathroom and that was a little too much. Phases...they come and go. Take care. Warmly,Deb

Hi Bonnie,
What a cute post, yes this has happened to me as well, not with sand but with other stuff he does not want to call about...I think he learned his lesson and now he makes his own construction calls!
I am back in blog land, I changed the name of my blog come visit and read my post...
XO,
Donna Lynn

ha ha ha! I LOVE this post. Oh how can I EVER relate. Most wives probably can.

Just tell him sweetly how BIG and MANLY and RESOURCEFUL he is, and he'll figure out how to work with it.

Still chuckling....
