Oh, I agree, there’s a huge double standard here.  I always volunteer to mow the lawn for Darling Husband, and he always says “The neighbors would SEE, and what does that make me look like?”  So I have never done any yardwork at all, because he had made that very clear that is MAN’S work.

OTOH, he does inside stuff without batting an eye, but I think that’s because it’s private.

Last weekend we had the dumbest fight.  It was our first time away from our kid so we were already off balance.  DH turned on a movie while I was in the shower.  

I came out and asked him something (was 100% not important, just chatting.)  I knew he didn’t hear me, so I teased him for it.

Then, he turned off the TV, and said “Well you OBVIOUSLY had a problem with me watching it.”  I kept saying “No, I care that you can’t watch and listen at the same time!”

Then, with the TV off, he wanted to know what I said.  I couldn’t remember.  But I was already committed to being mad, so I kept saying “It’s not important what I said!”

Then he was like “So why did I have to listen???”

We did that for like 10 minutes.

Haha I cannot believe your SO was mad at you for doing a chore! If I caught my Fiance doing any of my chores without me asking I would pass out from sheer happiness lol.

Luckily my Fiance and I rarely ever argue but the one time we completely fell out was before we got engaged and over the most stupid subject ever… what sport our potential future children would play. Ridiculous! The thought of them playing football (soccer) still distresses me haha.

Luckily I have many years to persuade my Fiance that they should be rowers / rubgy players / sailors / anything other than football players Tongue Out.

Ahhh! Me and my Fiance have stupid fights all the time! Our favorite is, which tires are supposed to go wear.  I like to have my best tires with the most thread in the rear of the car, because I drive a front wheel drive car, and he insists they should be in the front.  I tell him I talked to many mechanics about it, and he gets mad because I don’t believe him.  Then we go around in circles for a while, till we finally agree to disagree.  Its hard to settle me down sometimes, so usually I’m still a little tiffed afterwards. 🙂

@OUgal0004:  The maddest my SO has ever been at me was for something really stupid. We were “fooling around” on the couch and he asked if I wanted to take it to the bedroom. It was a work night right before bed, and I realized I had left my cell phone (alarm clock) in my car. So I told him I’d be right there. I wanted to run out to the car and grab it so I didn’t have to… you know, get redressed and go get it afterwards…

Anywho, I guess he didn’t understand why I wanted to go out to the car, and I was gone for probably 30 seconds. When I got into bed he had his back turned to me, and he said, “Just leave me alone.” And I couldn’t figure out why he was mad. He finally told me that he thought I could have waited till after and he thought it was really rude that I went out to the car and I hurt his feelings. I had no idea. I didn’t mean to make him mad. I’ve caught him watching TV… during, and that annoyed me, but it didn’t make me mad. So I didn’t understand why he was so mad about me grabbing my alarm clock. But yea, he was mad at me for almost a week for that.

Him doing the laundry, specifically, doing MY laundry. Dont touch my stuff!! It got me SOO upset. And then he got upset because he washed my stuff for me and all he gets is a pissed off chick. I can see how its a nice gesture but I dont want my jeans with my satin panties and VS bras. And not everything goes on the dryer!! Its funny that we argued about this now bit at the time it seemed HUGE!
