The person driving definitely gets to pick the music (and control the air temp)!

The person who cooks dinner packs the lunches for the next day 🙂

We have the same rules!  The front cupholder is more for ease of reach than anything though.

We also do not play Monopoly together at all as a rule.

Haha, those are good rules! 

1. When we’re on a long road trip, I always drive last b/c I’m better at staying awake.  It’s pretty much an unspoken rule.

2. Whoever cooks the other person has to do the dishes (though sometimes this isn’t enforced!).

3. Whenever college football is on, the Dude gets the tv(s).  Any other time, I have dibs.  🙂

1. same as you, if you’re on the laptop you do not get the remote

2. things must be deleted together on the DV-R

@mouse:  we match on 2 and 3! except he gets the tv more often because of College Football, Hockey, and College Basketball…. which leads me to reading quite a bit!

@snow – Yeah no Monopoly for the lack of niceness.  He even admits it, but he tends to make deals with everyone but me (and plenty of deals include “I’ll only trade if you don’t trade with her”!).  But we can play plenty of other games, I don’t know what the problem gets to be in Monopoly…

We totally do the driver gets the front cup holder too!

Also @mouse – opposite for us on #1: Mr. Guinea Pig always drives when it’s late because I fall asleep so easily!

After dinner, one of us does the dishes and one of us takes the dog out.

I let him have the TV most of the time, but I always get to watch Lost, House, The Office and Glee.

When we’re vegging out, I always get the sofa and he always gets the loveseat.

1) Whoever does the cooking gets help with the dishes and clean-up. 

2) Whoever goes to bed first at night makes sure the other person wakes up on time in the morning. 

3) Whoever goes in the kitchen first in the a.m. puts on the pot of coffee.

We have a couple of those!

1. One activity at a time.  If you’re on your laptop, no tv remote!
2. Ask before you go #2 in the bathroom in case the other person has to #1
3. You cut/separate/divide, I choose which portion I get
4. You cook, I do the dishes.
5. The driver gets the radio, but the passenger gets the climate control
6. The passenger is the official navigator!  Map out, figuring out where we’re going!

1. We have a chart to keep track of who took out the dog last/most.  So if you have less checks it’s your turn to take them out.  We used to bicker about this a lot.

2.  If we both watch a series, we don’t watch the dvr’d show without the other person. 

3.  I feed the dogs breakfast, he feeds them dinner.

I’m sure we have more, but those are the ones that come to mind.

If there is a show we are both interested in, we watch together or Tivo it so we can watch together later.

I give the dog a bone before I leave for work, he gives the cat treats before he leaves

The passenger figures out what to listen to on the radio (there are very few fights over this, we like pretty much all the same music)


This is all I can think of at the moment
