When Sue Spicious (31) heard the dishwasher open in the kitchen from the lounge room, she knew the inevitable next step in this process – hubby would enter the room to tell her he had put a plate and a cup away. However, when husband Alan entered the lounge room and sat without saying a word, that’s when Sue became alarmed.
“It was just so out of character,” said wife, Sue. “All men have to let you know you put something in the dishwasher – like we can’t hear them clanging about from the other end of the house. So, when Alan didn’t say anything, I had to go and look for myself.”
Thinking hubby had broken something and was trying to sneak it past her, everything checked out after Sue’s inspection which continued to raise her concerns.
“I’ve never known a man not to tell you he’s done the smallest chore and expect a pat or a treat like he was a Labrador or a trained monkey. This may be a first in history!”
Convinced she may be onto some ground-breaking territory; Sue is now setting ‘tasks’ around their house to look for other abnormal behaviour. Only time will tell if Alan does change the toilet roll, fold up the washed towels or manage to watch a full 80 minutes of footy without explaining how he’d do things differently.
