Husbands are a special breed. They try their best, they really do. But their best isn’t always good enough, and sometimes you end up with their finger in your drink or with all of your guest towels stained pink.
They can’t be trusted to fold a fitted sheet, and some of them are out there in the world thinking it’s okay to microwave a t-shirt, but we love them anyway. Their listening skills may not be up to par, but there are other reasons you love them!
Not Exactly What She Was Hoping For
Imagine asking your husband to take a picture of the two of you on your wedding night and this is the only picture he takes. He looks happy and she looks… well, we can’t see how she looks, but we can guess how she’s feeling when she saw the photo later.
This is a solid start to the marriage. Ladies remember to always teach your man to take more than one picture. It increases your chances of getting a half-decent one where you can see both of your faces!
Congrats On Your Birth
If it’s anything to do with gift-giving, your husband probably can’t be trusted, which is what this woman learned the hard way when she sent her husband to buy a gift bag for a baby shower.
Imagine this man standing in the store looking at the ‘Happy Birthday’ bags and rather than walking two steps further down the aisle to where the baby shower decorations probably were. Instead, he chose this one. Incredible.
Return To Sender
Another thing that they cannot be trusted with is buying tampons. We’ve all seen the memes and jokes on Twitter about husbands or boyfriends who don’t know the difference between the sizes or brands, but this woman has to live that meme.
If any man thinks that “scrub buddies” is a brand of tampons, it’s time to get rid of them. They’re not worthy, you know you’re better than that.
He Didn’t Even Try
No matter how many times you show them or correct them, your husband will never load the dish washer properly. It’s never going to happen, but you can take comfort in knowing every other spouse is going through the same thing with their husband, over and over again.
It looks like whoever loaded this dishwasher has just given up hope altogether. There are dishes stacked inside other dishes, and there’s even a Tupperware with the lid still on! Absolute chaos.
Always Give Specific Instructions
This wife asked for a 2-carat ring for her anniversary present, and that’s exactly what she got. Never leave room for interpretation when it comes to your husband. You need to give specific, clear instructions, preferably with a diagram included just in case.
Make sure to give instructions that will be clear to him too, otherwise you’ll end up getting a dollar store ring with two carrots shoved through it as a present.
Oh You Think You’re Funny?
“Last night I asked my husband to put some spaghetti on the stove so I could start dinner when I got home.”
This man must’ve thought he was hilarious. He probably chuckled to himself as he took the handful of pasta out the bag. What we want to know is how many years into their marriage are they and how many times has he pulled this joke? Also, has his wife ever actually laughed at it?
Grounds For Divorce
This is a power move. This is definitely not what this man’s wife meant what she said “do you want to try these?” She didn’t mean take a bite out of every single one, but again, she didn’t give clear enough instructions. Leave nothing to interpretation!!
We’re pretty sure a judge would grant you a divorce if you said you wanted one because your husband took a singular bite out of every single one of your donuts.
Who Raised This Man?
What kind of absolute madman is this woman married to? There is a man out there — walking around in our world pretending he’s normal — who thinks it’s acceptable to leave the toilet paper like this. This is not a narrative we want any part of.
This right here is a prime example of why you should always live with someone before you marry them and are legally committed to them. You need to know about stuff like this ahead of time.
She’s In Tip Top Shape
“Irreconcilable differences” actually just means “our heights are too far apart.” This 5’1″ woman asked her husband who is 6’2″ to hang a mirror for her, but he didn’t take into account that she is a literal foot shorter than him. How can she be expected to live like this?
It seems like one clear way around this issue would be a full-length mirror. Seems like it would solve all your problems, but to each their own!
Laundry Day Can Be A Roller Coaster Of Emotion
This husband was defeated by a fitted sheet, just like numerous men before him were, and numerous after him will be.
There’s a secret art to folding a fitted sheet that very few people understand, and making this poor man try without any guidance seems like a punishment more than a household task. It could’ve been a passive-aggressive task from his wife for something he didn’t even realize he had done, or maybe she just didn’t want to fold it.
This is definitely not what Michaelanne wanted or expected when she asked her husband to stir her drink for her. That’s marriage though! Having a husband means you have to expect the unexpected at all times.
Every day is an adventure where he might stick his finger in your drink. He has to keep you on your toes so you don’t get bored of him. We hope this husband was nice enough to at least wash his hands before this.
Build Your Own Dream Home
The classic home renovation husband fail. This man’s wife asked him for a little extra counter space in the kitchen, but this was not what she meant.
Women just have to accept that not all men are handy, and you might have to be the one in the relationship who knows how to fix the sink or dryer. It’s 2019, wives can be the handy ones! Looks like this wife wasn’t given much of a choice.
Burn Baby Burn
“When you attempt a nice ‘welcome home’ breakfast for your wife and turn the oven to grill instead of fan…” At least he was trying to do something nice?
Maybe this husband’s ‘something nice’ should’ve been ordering take out from her favorite restaurant rather than serving her a blackened cajun meal, but it’s the thought that counts! Hopefully, his next thought was ‘I can’t make her eat this I should order a pizza.”
He’ll Remember This Day Forever
What’s the story behind this one? Well, it ends with a husband whose probably sleeping on the couch for tonight.
This man asked to borrow his wife’s phone and she said her password was their anniversary… It would’ve taken him at least 20 wrong tries plus waiting time in between to get him to the point of giving up. Now his wife is also at the point of giving up, but on her husband.
We’re willing to bet you probably can’t guess what happened to this t-shirt unless by some unfortunate coincidence your husband has also done this.
This man thought that in order to dry his shirt faster he could, rather than just changing the dryer setting, put it in the microwave. He was sorely mistaken. Turns out you cannot microwave a cotton t-shirt. Maybe he can turn this into some sort of Halloween costume?
“Once upon a time, I sent my daughter and my husband off to buy her some nice new clothes.” Imagine you send your husband to buy clothing for your child and instead, he brings home an astronaut in a spacesuit.
What if this was a ploy all along though? Maybe this husband knew that if he brought his daughter back in an outfit that resembled tin foil he’d never be asked to go clothes shopping again…
Enough Trauma To Keep Em Laughing
The key is to traumatize your children just enough to make sure they turn out funny. It’s a very fine line that not all parents can achieve, but this soon-to-be father wanted to take the initiative.
He gave his wife — who was three-months pregnant at the time — this book as a little light reading so they could be on the same page, but she didn’t find it quite as funny as he did.
This husband was asked to remove his garbage from the kitchen counter, but he instead turned it into a literal piece of art, and great content for his wife’s Twitter. Both the best and worst part about this is that some modern art museum would probably purchase this, only further encouraging this husband.
He has also since created another piece of similar art from a box of Nairn’s oatcakes, and now that he’s internet famous, she’ll never be able to get her husband to pick up his garbage.
The #1 Laundry Sin
This husband was asked to do the laundry, and subsequently, he will never be asked to participate in that household chore again. He committed the cardinal laundry sin that’s basically the first thing anyone teaches you when you’re shown how to do laundry.
It’s one of those things you think could never happen to you. You would never be the one to leave a red sock in with the whites, and yet, here we are.
Highlighting The Issues
This woman made the mistake of sending her husband to buy her makeup, and he instead returned with school supplies. She asked for highlighter and that’s exactly what she got, she just didn’t want the textbook kind.
This one can only partially be blamed on the husband because any wife that asks her husband to buy her makeup is opening the door to a disaster. It was a bold move, and it backfired.
