FI and I went to help his cousin’s husband clean out his grandpa’s apartment. He had a brand new queen bed and mattress in the spare bedroom he bought it and then he ended up having a stroke and needing a nursing home. They offered it to us free if we came and got it. Well, since FI and I will be moving in together we figured it would be perfect for us to start out and then eventually move into our spare when we get a king.
FI DIDN’T STRAP THE STUPID THING DOWN! It went flying out of the bed of the pick up and straight into the muddy gross side of the road….Before we left i asked “are you sure its secure” and “I brought tarps and blankets, don’t you think we should wrap it?” FI insisted it was fine and wasn’t going anywhere for our 3 mile drive….So…does anyone know if there are companies that can clean a mattress? lol or should we just cut our losses and get a new one? Its a beautiful sealy posturepedic pillowtop! -did i mention he’s an engineer and should be able to figure out how to keep a mattress from flying out of a truck! UGH! lol

My FI is a supergenius, really, but some of the things he does have me saying WTF haha!!!
Example: He wanted to help me cook dinner one night, so I told him to make mashed potatoes. He had them in a bowl with the masher I gave him trying to do as I asked. He didn’t remove the skins and he HADN’T BOILED THEM YET. Wtf!! Poor guy, I almost died laughing.

@MrsTywinLannister: LOL FI’s brother one time used the immersion blender to “mash” the potatoes. It turned to potatoe baby food lol!

Not really a WTF thing, but I asked the SO to microwave a can of peas. He dumps the entire contents of the can (without draining the peas), microwaves them, and wonders why the peas look soggy and fuzzy within a few minutes. Ew.

I have lots…the time FI dumped the trash into the trash chute with the same hand holding his car keys and lost his keys. The time I asked him to clean the bathroom and walked in on him using the toilet brush to clean the bathroom and kitchen counters…I love him but sometimes he just makes me say wtf were you thinking!.

@mmr66: LOL OMG – I had friends that were moving a couch once that fell off in the middle of the highway. They BACKED UP and went to pick it up! It was sitting in the MIDDLE LANE. Idiots! HAHA
I always say that FI needs me to keep his life in order – usually he does dumb shit when drinking w/his buddies!

@mmr66: I am the husband and I can admit I have a tendency to make my wife think WTF often… This is a lighter WTF moment however, usually mine are much worse; drilling a nail through the kitchen floor and my wifes foot finding it, kicking her slipper over to her and drillin her in the throat…This morning I decided I would go into ninja mode and hide behind the curtains for as long as I could just to observe my wife going about her morning routine without me ‘being there’. It lasted about 45 seconds, and I bailed out after she passed me so I wouldn’t scare her. I tried walking the opposite way from her and scared her anyway…

@mmr66: DH thinks the hand towel in the kitchen (the one you use after you washed your hands to dry them) is an “wipe everything in the kitchen” towel. Spill soda on the counter, use the hand towel to wipe it up and put it back. A large dollop of ketchup falls on the floor, wipe it up with the hand towel and hang it back up. Sweaty from being outside, use the hand towel to wipe you sweaty face and hang it back up. UGH! It is finally after 3 years of marriage that DH finally understands what that towel is for.
As a side note– there are companies that do deep cleaning. My friend had a cat that was using their favorite chair as a litter box. She used a company that advertised being able to take out smoke (as in fire in your house, not cigerette) damage smell and some water damage.

Hmm, SO regularly has his WTF moments, typically to get a rise out of me. One completely accidental WTF moment that still sticks out in my mind happened many years ago.
The first dinner he ever made for me was ramen with a slice of kraft cheese floating on top of it.
That genuine look of confusion on his face still has me laughing to this day. I guess I had the look of all horrors on my face and he couldn’t understand what that look was for. 😉

@mmr66: Must be a dude thing. When I first started dating my guy, I asked him (before I went to the grocery store) if he had a “potato masher” so I could make us mashed sweet potatoes. He said he did and when the time came for the masher, he pulled out an immersion blender.

@mmr66: My husband didn’t know that prunes are actually just dried plums. I like to use them as garnishes sometimes, So I bought a box that said dried plums instead of prunes.. I came home one day and DH says to me, “Wow, those dried plums are so good, I ate the whole box”! I think you know the rest…………..

We moved into our new place two months ago, so far he’s left the door unlocked twice, left the oven on, left the stove on, and broke the toilet (innocently). We lived together for 2 years before this place, nothing like that ever happened. What happened to him during our move?!
