Not happening.

SO C was off today.  I get home and he has done all the laundry.
C: Your laundry is on top of they dryer.  Your shirts are on top.  You should put them away before they get all wrinkled.

Yeah, that is so not an issue with me.  I iron clothes.  Clothes need shape, not just to be not wrinkled.  Anyway, I am just in from school.
Me: Yeah just give me 15 minutes.  Then I'll put them away after dinner.

C puts the basket from the dryer on to the table.  "You know if you did it now it would be done."

Oh, I so don't think that is happening.

Yep, and if I do it later it will be done then.

10 minutes later, he sighs, because now it is driving his OCD crazy having a basket of clothes on the table.

Fine, I'll just put it away then.


  1. oh yes. "It'll only take a second."

    as an ocd sufferer, and a procrastinator, i understand both sides :)

    1. The funny thing A is that the shit on the table is how I motivate him to pay overdue bills. It doesn't bother me. Poor C forgets that he is the OCD guy. Me? I am not actually a procrastinator, I just hate being told, albeit nicely, what to do. Nagging me, yeah, it doesn't work, just makes me dig in my heels.

  2. I am the same way Jamie... I don't want anyone telling me what to do... if so, I did my heels in ... lol
