In response to a confession. When I was 21 and got my own apartment, I literally did not know how to work the vacuum cleaner. Why? Because I grew up spoiled and pampered and no one showed me how. I didn't know how to do laundry either until a friend showed me. I had no idea how to make coffee. Dh has taught me how to change a tire and use a drill (with various bits), band saw, chainsaw, soldering iron, lawnmower, riding mower, edge trimmer, snowblower and a million other tools and gadgets. I would not have known that you have to squeeze the handles together on the lawnmower if dh hadn't showed me. Not everyone knows how to do everything. They need people to show them. Kind of like kids. Dh is very good at grocery shopping, though.

In response to a confession. No, not everyone is like this just because you are. We aren't all saints, but some of us have the emotional maturity to accept others as they are. The one doing the judging has the emotional maturity of a pissed off teenager. Yeah, I can say with confidence that I'm exponentially less judgemental than her. Call me full of shit all you want if it makes you feel better. Then grab your binky and take a nap.

In response to a confession. Don't feel bad, op. I can't start our pull-start mower either. I'm not incompetent (thanks, asshole), I just don't have the upper body strength. Things I also suck at are: opening jars (my hands barely fit over the lid), trimming the hedges because our hedge trimmer is too heavy, lifting our massive dog into the bathtub, and changing a tire. I'm sure there's plenty more I can be shamed for, but that's all I can think of right now. I guess now you can shame me for being born into a small body. I could lift weights and eat cake all day, and not break 105 pounds.

Sounds like someone was raised by scorekeeper parents. Sorry to hear. How exhausting to always comparing chores and many grains of rice each get for dinner.

Hopefully to end this battle on a silly note, I knew a woman whose DH was sent to the grocery store for feminine napkins....he came home with pink dinner napkins! True story.

I like doing the grocery shopping, too. Plus, since I put more effort into wanting to save money and do the meal planning, it just plain works better if I do it. If it doesn't bother me and it doesn't bother DH that he always changes oil on the cars and mows the lawn and whatnot, why does it matter to anyone else? It's all about what you and your partner work out between the two of you. No one's marriage is going to be identical to anyone else's. Can we just respect that and move on? Sheesh.

I feel sorry for all the women who are such ignorant doormats that they use all their time to be unpaid maids. Their husbands must be laughing to themselves.

Everyone judges to a certain extent. If you say you never do then you're full of shit.

In response to a confession. Not the op, but the original confession didn't mention you couldn't start the mower because of an injury. The way it was worded kind of implied that you just couldn't figure out how to start it because you aren't any good at lawn care. Just sayin.

In response to a confession. But why do you have to judge? Why can't you just let shit be? Because if you judge this, you must judge _everything_ that goes on around you. That's a shitty way to live.
