A couple were enduring a stony silence today after the wife rearranged the way her husband had packed the dishwasher.
John Cadogan from Belfast said he just couldn’t understand his wife’s attitude. “Women nag at you to do more around the house but as soon as you do they get all precious and possessive about it.
“I made a really good job of stacking the dirty dishes but she had to come and interfere. All she did was move a few bowls…it was her way of telling me that this was her territory and she was in charge.
John’s wife, Mary, defended her actions and said she was only trying to show him how to ensure the soup bowls came out clean. “He’d stacked them too close…the water wouldn’t be able to get to all the stuck on grease and stuff. It’s just typical of men. They hate being told anything and always think they know best.”
“It’s you who think you know best,” said John before storming off and then realising that he didn’t have anywhere to go. He eventually settled on checking his phone for ‘important’ messages.
Meanwhile, Mary set the dishwasher going and started ironing his shirts…just so he knows how much she does for him.
It’s thought the couple will be on speaking terms again by later this afternoon…as long as Mary doesn’t tell him that he missed a bit when he mowed the lawn.
