I love my husband. I really do. But today I might throw something at him.
For the third day in a row, our dog has had an accident downstairs between 8pm and midnight. The dogs need a walk at this time, and since its night, normally that is the walk hubs does because he doesn’t like it when I’m “walking around alone at night”. Fine, I walk them all day anyways so I like the break.
The past three nights, he has been zoned out on the xbox. If I ask him to take the dogs out, he says he will. then he forgets, and the dog has an accident, and I come downstairs and I STEP IN A PUDDLE.
Then I clean up the puddle, and say the dog had an accident, and Darling Husband, while still glued to tv, responds “Must have been there.”
For the third. Day. In a row.
I’m finally fed up and taking the dogs out for their evening walk, even though it irks me, because he clearly can’t be depended on right now while this machine has tapped into his subconcious or soemthing (damn you xbox).
Additionally, I told him it was impossible for it to have been there, because I keep cleaning it up!!
And he insists that the pee “must have been there a few days”. NOOOOO!
So I get super pissed and tell him that it hasn’t been, because I keep spot-botting it, and that he is so unaware he doesn’t realize they are doing it OR that I keep cleaning it. And frankly, I’m a little peeved that he thinks my housekeeping is so wonderful that I would leave dog pee on the carpet for days.
He snaps back that he would have definitely noticed. I say, you haven’t noticed because I’ve been scrubbing the carpet every night for three nights and you haven’t noticed that either! So I get pissy and call shenanigans, and tell him fine, if you think that’s how well I clean, I will just leave the pee there. You already think I leave pee on the carpet, why should I be up to my elbows in carpet cleaning?! HMPH. (Gross, but I am that pissed).
So yes, I’m feeling all kinds of stabby.
And so he says “Fine, I’ll clean it” and he brings down OUST! (like the kind you spray in the air). When I tell him “That is not EVEN the carpet cleaner”, he stomps off.
And now there is still pee on my floor.
And I swear to god I will replace that carpet before I clean up that pee.
