Here is some cranky advice to women that will not be followed, but…what the heck.

Ladies, if you want your man to do something, JUST ASK!

I know; your man should know to do stuff and you shouldn’t have to ask.  Well he doesn’t and you do.  The sooner you learn that, the happier your relationship will be.

Women…do not let shit pile up and expect your man to notice and step in to clean up the mess.  I know, I know…you shouldn’t have to ask…

AH,   BUT   YOU   DO!     

Follow my cranky advice and instead of this:

“How can you just walk past that mess day after day and not lift a finger to clean it up?  Why do I have to do everything?”

“I don’t know, (man instinctually goes on the defensive) I didn’t notice.”

“How could you not notice?  It smells, and you can’t use the sink!”

“I don’t smell anything and I don’t use the sink.”

You will have this:

“Honey, I have stuff to do upstairs, would you be a love and clean up the kitchen?”

“Oh, sure, no problem.”

It is that simple ladies…you need to ask.  Then when he does as you ask, give him a treat.  Men are dogs.  Treat them like dogs.  You don’t expect a dog to just fetch the paper, you have to ask… “Fido, FETCH!” When he brings you the paper you scratch him behind the ears and tell him “Good boy.”

I hear you… “But I shouldn’t have to tell him!”

Once again:  AH,   BUT   YOU   DO!     

If you want to fight and get pissed off in that holier-than-thou way all the time, wait for a man to notice something and then step in and fix it.

If you want things to get done, ask in that women’s way of telling and then reward the good behavior. 

It is very simple;

Ask…reward.  After several years you may not even have to ask.

And by reward I mean SEX.


  1. I dunno Cranky. Sounds like you're making a lot of work for us. Is the Mrs getting pissed off and fighting really all that bad? I find make-up sex is AWESOME! Just sayin'.


  2. One of your finest posts ever! I can't tell you how many times this conversation plays out at my house. And by the way, when I take time to name the dust bunnies in our home that should count for something!

  3. Okay, so it's not just me. All husband/wife relationships are like this?

    I feel a huge burden lifted from my shoulders.

    Stephen, you name the dust bunnies? Nice! I was just giving them numbers.

  4. thanks for the refresher course. :)

  5. Oh, sure easy to say. But when a female asks a male to do chores she is labeled a NAG. If she expects favors for sex she is labeled a B**CH. There is no easy way to communicate. Women and men are different. Viva La Difference!

  6. Is this a rerun? sure sounds familiar... but my mind is old. and you are wrong... dead wrong.

    asking accomplishes nothing. I even suggest. could you or would you which then leads to complete frustration after years of could yous and would yous.

    Mutual doins without any kind of reward should be the norm... that's my husband and I are husband and wife in paper only ... drives me insane er

    sex as a reward ... Mrs. Cranky reading this slop?

    the sexiest thing a man can do is grab a mop... guarantee it

  7. I had taken this poster from one of your posts some time ago--you can have it back. I assume it refers to cleaning, too!!

    "Ladies, if a man says he will fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it."

  8. Ah, you are one of those perfect husbands who actually gets around to it, and apparently in good time, also. You do deserve the reward.

  9. ASK? That takes all the fun out of it. If I'd asked my husband to pick up the banana peel he left stuffed in the cushion of his La-Z-Boy, I wouldn't have two pictures of it. And forget that catty blog post.

  10. HA! Lotta truth in what you say.

    And ladies, when a man tells you he's gonna do something, you don't have to remind him every six months...

  11. I don't actually have a problem with this, although that's mostly because I'm bossy and I like telling people what to do.
