DH has cleaning "zones." Ie, after dinner, the dishes don't go into the dishwasher, they go into the sink and on the counter, but I can't complain because they are in the "zone" Dirty clothes don't go in the hamper, they get piled next to the hamper in the "hamper zone" Clean clothes are stacked on top of dressers instead of in the drawers. you get the idea. What is a "zone?!!!" Either trash is in the garbage or it is not. Shoes are either on the shoe rack or not! Next to it does NOT count, and is NOT helpful. Take one more step and put the thing where it goes!!!! I bake pizza IN the oven, I don't place it in the general vicinity or "zone" and expect it to get baked. We had a huge fight about it last night and he dared to call me hormonal... like no honey, this has been a fight since we got married.
I am on pelvic rest thru my first trimester, and when he complained this morning and talked about how glad he will be when this phase is over, I told him that he has no business complaining since we can still do other things, which means we are "in the zone" and that is good enough..... the look he gave me. LOL Ok so maybe I am a little hormonal.
@luvmychickens full stop. My husband would not be long for this world if he behaved that way. It's like having another child around.
