HOUSE WARSEvery relationship goes through battles over silly shit. Sometimes these battles get out of hand and relationships are destroyed. Most times a hard and fast rule is established or a compromise is reached. The following are the most common causes of HOUSE WARS!!
Do knives go pointy side up or pointy side down in the dishwasher?
Pro – Pointy side up assures the business end is thoroughly cleaned.
Con – Pointy side up can cause the dish unloader to stab him/her self.
Answer – Pointy side up!
Should the toilet seat be left up or down?
Pro – Leave the seat up. If left down there may be pee on the seat when beer drinkers cannot see in the middle-of-the-night.
Con – Put the seat down, otherwise wine sippers might fall in the bowl because they cannot see in the middle-of-the-night!
Answer – Put the seat down. Even in a bachelor pad, put the seat down. Women feel very strongly about this one!
Should toilet paper be loaded over the top, or under the bottom?
Pro – Over the top assures no germs from the wall are on the toilet paper.
Con – Who the fuck cares!
Answer – Over the top. Women care!
Roll socks up into a ball, or just put them away paired off?
Pro – They never get lost rolled up.
Con – Rolling up into a ball stretches them out.
Answer – Roll up the men’s, pair off the women’s. This one calls for a compromise.

Should the BRBQ be covered when not in use?

Should dishes be hand dried or can you just let them air dry?
Pro – They will dry just fine, do not waste time hand drying.
Con – Hand drying assures there will be no spotting.

Should your wife be allowed to sleep with other men?
Pro – She may want to.
Con – I don’t think so!
Answer – I still say no, but I am 0 for 2 on this one!
Should the man be allowed to hold the remote control?
