My husband is having to work on valentines day, but luckily I have our puppy to cheer me up! But so I can have a bit of a chuckle while i wait at home, What is your funniest misunderstanding in your marriage? Or about your marriage?
Mine is actually with my mum. We were out shopping and I saw a pair of shoess I loved. Tried them on. They fit perfectly. I was so happy, and said to my mum “I’m going to get them just don’t tell my hubby!”
Cue momma bear mode. She started saying “it’s your money, you can get what you want”.. etc. (We have a joint account and a personal account each with fun money)
After she chilled out, I told her she’s right. It’s my money, my hubby doesnt care about that. It’s the fact there’s no space for them, my shoes are already spilling out of the closet.
She had to agree with him that I need to sort through the shoes I have after that, but still turned a blind eye to me buying them.
I’m not married but I’m so oblivious to things around me and my fiancé thinks it’s funny…
my fiancé will shave and then 2 days later I’ll ask him if he just freshly shaved…
anyway, one time in the summer I heard him shaving with his electric clippers (or so I thought) and when he came out of the bathroom I asked him if he just shaved and told him he looked handsome. The lighting was dark so I couldn’t see him well at the angle he was standing.
He said uhhh no? And I was like “oh it must have been someone outside.”
he bust out laughing and I didn’t get why for a second
In my mind, I meant it must have been someone outside doing edging on the lawn since it was a buzzing sound but it came out weird…he interpreted it as some stranger shaving on the front porch
My husband is asbolutely convinced that a marriage license works like a driver’s license in that you have to get it renewed every 20 years. I have tried explaining that’s not how it works, but he looks at me like I have 3 heads and am trying to convince him of this so that in 20 years we will let our license expire. 😂
Oh goodness, hubby and I have pretty funny misunderstandings happen at least once every six months. We both do shift work and weird hours and sometimes sleep deprivation gives logical conversations a bit of a psychedelic edge and misunderstandings happen.
I’ve told this one on here before but I still find it pretty funny to this day. Our first Christmas together as a married couple, my husband decided out of fun and cuteness that he’d sign his Christmas card with his actual name followed in brackets by the word ‘hubby’. On Christmas morning I opened the card and was very confused because he’d forgotten to put the final bracket around the word ‘hubby’ and the way he’d drawn his first bracket was very curly to the point that it actually looked like an uppercase ‘C’. So instead of it looking like ‘hubby’ it actually looked like he’d signed the card as –
Mr Cmsgirl Chubby
It didn’t quite click what had happened in first moment I’d read that card and was like 🤔. I then asked him what the ‘chubby’ was about and he gave me an equally ‘wtf are you on about look?’. He then grabbed the card and his face was pretty priceless when he realised what he’d done. He then explained what happened and we just both ended up on the floor in tears with laughter.
I haven’t let him live that one down and a lot of our family and friends know the story because I’ve told them. Sometimes as a joke if I’m writing a card for family I ask him how he wants me to sign it. He just rolls his eyes at me in reply but I know he finds it funny.
The other time we had a misunderstanding was when we’d just moved into this house. Hubby had purchased some groceries as well as car engine oil to do the service on my car. He asked me where I wanted the oil. I didn’t understand he meant engine oil so I told him to put it in the second pantry where I keep the less used kitchen appliances, extra cleaning stuff and the vinegar. He didn’t question it and I was very puzzled the next day to find 4 litres of engine oil in a plastic bag next to my stash of spare vinegar bottles. When I asked him about it, he was that’s where you told me to put it but I didn’t question it even though I thought leaving it in the boot of the car made more sense to me. I am pretty OCD about everything having its place to live in the house and hubby knows that about me so I can totally understand why he just went that’s weird but I’ll just do as she says. 😔
He was doing some DIY the other day, and we were joking around talking dirty (big tool/use your hammer, that kind of thing). Then he pulled me close and whispered ‘shall I use my pile driver’?
I assume he meant to say screwdriver but after that all I could think about was the other meaning of piles and the moment was lost. I thought it was hilarious and kept laughing all day whenever I thought about it. He was pretty embarrassed!
juneweddingbee : Can’t think of a good anecdote right now, but I HAD to say that your dog is so so so freakin adorable. I know it’s just one picture and I’m going to sound like a crazy lady, but she looks like she has the best personality!
Miss_Mae : she does! You don’t sound crazy at all. We are obsessed with her. She has her own instagram and everything. 😂 we love her too pieces. It’s been a lot of work raising a puppy but seeing the wonderful dog she is turning into and the laughter she brings has made it all worth it.
