Why is it that he always sends an, “I love you” message, right when you are in the middle of storming around the house cursing his fucking name?
Is it ESP or something? Does he feel that right at that moment he is mentally being burned in effigy and suddenly feels the need to try and buy some good karma or something? Because I frequently get the text message that says, “I hope you’re having a great day. I love you.’, when I am so pissed off I want to scream!!!
I’ll be in the middle of wiping the coffee stains off the kitchen benches, the cupboards and even the goddamn floor, and mentally calculating how many more times I am prepared to do this before I throw the malodorous filthy fucking espresso machine out the fricken kitchen window and my little iPhone will innocuously go *ding* with an ‘I love you’.
Or I’ll be scrubbing the toilet of HIS skiddies, or scraping phlegm off the bathroom sink or washing bits of beard off the porcelain… and wondering ‘Ferfucksake why?!? Does he not see it? DOES HE NOT FUCKING SEE IT?’ and the phone will go *ding* with little messages of love.
I’ll be thinking to myself, ‘what part of, “you need to find somewhere else to hang those ties” sounds like a fucking suggestion?’, or ‘he said he fucking cleaned this, and yet here I am, on my hands and knees, doing it properly’, or sighing in slumped resignation at the realization that my request to take the stupid garbage out has been ignored for the umpteenth time and my phone will go *ding* with a text window telling me I’m so awesome. 🙁
WELL FUCK THAT SHIT.
You want to tell me that you love me… scrub down your own damn dunny and leave it smelling fresh and clean for the next occupant.
You want to tell me that you love me… actually clean the dishes when you say you are going to, and realize that cleaning the dishes also involves wiping down the sink!
You want to tell me that you love me… look after your own shit and don’t leave disgusting coffee stains and smells permeating the entire kitchen.
You want to tell me that you love me… don’t use the bathtub as an ‘overflow’ laundry hamper hindering anyone from actually taking a fucking bath!
You want to tell me that you love me… don’t vacuum the floor in part of the house and leave another part of the house littered with crap.
You want to tell me that you love me… then fucking DO something useful and fucking do it properly!
Here’s some free advice… thinking of getting married and sharing your life with someone until ‘death do you part’ or until one of you is lying about screwing some sort of window licking crazy in a dodgy hotel room on a Tuesday? By all means. Marriage rocks. Having someone to share your life with is awesome. BUT for crying out loud, save yourself years of heartache and marry someone who has the same sense of ‘clean’ as you do. Else you are just buying into a world of fucking hurt.
And don’t get me started on having compatible concepts of ‘punctuality’…
