Rigel's Most Excellent Lesson On How To Tame
A Control Freak.

Me: Can you help me put these juice boxes away?

Rigel: Sure.

Me: Oh, not in that cupboard. In that one.

Me: Oh, don't take those out of the box. Stack the other ones on top.

Me: Oh, don't put all the Berry ones in the back. I mix them up. I have a system.

Rigel: How about I just pee all over them?

  1. Don't let him! If he pees on the juice boxes, he gets to decide where they go!

    I saw that once on the Discovery Channel, only instead of Rigel and juice boxes; it was lions and a antelope carcass.

    Never let 'em pee, is my motto.

  2. LMAO. Honest to god, my husband and I had an eerily similar conversation last night. But mine didn't offer to pee all over the juice boxes.

  4. Did you become more of a control freak since your children were born? My wife and I have been having this discussion and she has become much more of a control freak once our Okapis were born. Now she is more "controlling" than I am.

    Very strange how that happened.

  5. You might be my wife's long-lost relative. Yesterday, I was instructed on how to properly put sippy cups in the dishwasher. Apparently there's a system involving color codes, sizes, and changing rotations. I didn't offer to pee on them but I did tell her that, from now on, I was just going to spit on them and wipe them clean with my socks. Good lord!

  7. This is funny! Sounds like our house, too. I'm always dictating.

  8. OMG! I never knew that there was a system for stacking...ok cans went together and boxes went together and I really felt my oats, I separated soups from veggies.

    But wife.imp will go behind me, still, and restack the dishwasher, refold the clothes...really, I am much better off letting her do it her way and watching my sports on t.v.

  9. I'm totally using this next time I get ordered around.

    "Honey, will you take out the garbage. Not like THAT, like..."

    "How about I pee on it?"

    Awesome.

  12. OMG you sound just like my husband.

    I'm so using the "pee on it.." thing next time!!

  13. Being an all out control freak, I sympathize with you. I just want to know - did you make sure he peed from right to left?

  17. LOL! That was just the right comment if you ask me. But, I am OCD about stuff too, so I know where you are coming from!

  18. I'm so with you on the putting away the juice boxes! Why they always gotta be messin with our sytems?
    You've got to tell him the knock-knock joke:

    Knock knock!
    Who's there?
    Control Freak. Now YOU say, 'Control Freak who?'

  19. I hate it when my guy puts stuff away...I have to go back in and redo it, even if it is almost right. Sick.....

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am SO with you! We do that with the milk boxes. We buy fat-free (for me) and reduced fat milk (for him). And I swear this conversation took place in our very own house.

    My system is two of his, one of mine LOL

    Mrs T - LOVE the knock knock joke.

  21. Rigel's funny. I stopped complaining or really asking Roy to do anything that I know he won't do the right way. I think it was all a part of his evil slacker plan.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can so relate. Well, except for the peeing part. At least the straws are wrapped in a protectice plastic pee shield!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think there is a book about this: "Women Are From Venus, Men Just Pee On It."

    ReplyDelete
  24. Being married to a control freak, I'm totally going to use that one!

    ReplyDelete
  25. So long as he's sure that once he's done peeing on them they're disinfected properly in the right order (rince, bleach, soaped, rinced, bleach dipped and dried) it should be fine :P

    ReplyDelete
  26. P has already unilaterally declared that certain rooms are hers: her kitchen, her bathroom, her bedroom etc. I am allowed in on sufferance. If I am not performing a specific task ai ma to go into a holding pattern and await instructions. Similarly if I become confused as to how a task is performed I should put up my hands and not touch anything until the matter is clarified. I live in the garden shed these days.

    I should have taken action when I had the chance. Rigel is my hero.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, geez. Rigel is walking around here now, all puffed up like a rooster after all these glowing comments.

    I'm going to have to take him down a notch by making him re-stack all of my canned goods in alphabetical order.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You crack me up! And Rigel is so funny. I have a feeling that if your hubby and mine were to go have a beer together, they'd come back best buds...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I just showed this entry to Hubby...He wants to be Rigel's new best friend!!!

    LMAO!

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOL. I suddenly don't feel so guilty for my own freakishness.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That is too funny and sounds like something I would do when Mike was healping me!..lol...

    ReplyDelete
  32. HHHAAA!!! Oh Sweats...that was AWESOME. I just fell in love with Rigel. made me burst out laughing...thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just delurking to say: You know how people say LOL, but they're not really laughing out loud, or anything close to it? I laughed out loud.

    Carry on.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Peeing on them is a system in it's own way....

    ReplyDelete

  36. "Have I told you lately...

    that I love you...?"

    Seriously, though.

    You're just great!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I will not share Rigel's comeback line with my husband, because I know all I'll hear when I instruct him on my "systems" is, "How about I just pee all over the (fill in the blank)." Very funny.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Of couse you have to mix them up!
    Sigh.
    Husbands, hopeless sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hee! Oh, and "Me" sounds just like me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Tell him if he pees on them, he has to create his own damn system.

    ReplyDelete
  41. That is just overly fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Men are just so superior--being able to pee on anything, anywhere, at anytime. Like on a long car ride and your bladder is bursting and they just say "Yeah, I have to go too. Hey, there's a bush!" and they pull over. Grr.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh, and your tage are hi-larious.

    ReplyDelete
  44. And when I say tage, I mean tags.

    ReplyDelete
  45. This one's just for fun.


    :)


    Okay, I'm done now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You sound like someone I know. You'd hate the state of my pantry.

    ReplyDelete
  47. How would the peeing fit into your system?:-))
