Tillerman35's secret to marital bliss [NOTE: Keep this to yourself, and don't let ANYBODY in on the secret, especially your wife- and SUPER especially not MY wife]:

Whenever your wife talks to you, simply repeat the last three to five words of whatever she says to you.  99% of the time, this will make her believe you weren't ignoring her (almost) completely.  About every five times you do this, change your intonation so that it appears you're asking a question.  Other times, if you find a verb in there somewhere, emphasize it to show you're agreeing with her.

Example:
Her: My sister and I went down today.  She bought [... going into fugue state ... thinking about buying a new set of metal files ... wonder if there's anything on the TiVo that I haven't watched yet ... oops! sounds like she's about to wrap up...] and it only cost ten dollars!
Me: Only cost ten dollars?
Her: Yeah - I KNOW!!! Can you believe it? [... external sensors set to minimal gain ... is there beer in the fridge? ... maybe I should make a run to the store ... and- rewind/review] Jennifer said it was cute.
Me: It WAS cute.
Her: Awww. Thanks, Honey!  I'm so glad you're not like all those who hate talking to their wives.

Ha! That's what I do when I'm talking to people I don't like very much. It amuses the Mrs Crazy, but she's really good at spotting it. I accidentally slipped into it once when I had a bad day and she was telling me about about work gossip. She stopped in the middle of a sentence and said "You're doing your ignoring trick." I got out "I'm doing my ignor..." before my brain caught up.

Daffydil: fiddlehead: Next time hire out the work he was supposed to do and then give him the bill. Of course, that only works if he gives a damn about the finances.

yes, that's what I had said I do now...on the third try I hire someone and he pays for it...this is highly motivating for him...

/you weren't paying attention the first time


Ha! "Research shows forum posters can tune out other posters' comments."

In my Human Growth and Development class in college my instructor stated that men lose the ability to hear higher pitched frequencies (like their wives voices) as they age. She asked us if anyone knew why.

I raised my hand and said: "Intelligent design: it's the last bit of peace we get before we die.".

The 32 women in the class were not amused. The 3 men were.

I don't tune her out... I just know she's about to say something stupid.

Super Chronic: I'm showing this to my wife and telling her it means it's likely to be less of a hassle if she just takes out the garbage herself.


Good luck... we're counting on you.
