Me: in the house working when he calls for me to come out and pick out shingles.. it does not take me but a minute, and I am back inside to get busy again...

Lee: Comes in....Where are those papers from the roofer??

Me: You took them to the insurance company..

Lee: Yes, I KNOW that but I brought them back and GAVE them to YOU!

Me: UUHHHH, NO you did NOT give them to ME!

Lee: YES, I did! WHERE would YOU have put them when I gave them to YOU!?

Me: That does not matter cause you did NOT give them back to me.

Lee: YES, I DID!

Me: Read my lips boy!!! NO, YOU DID NOT.... (putting up the dishes at this point) I asked you for them, and you informed me you still have them in your truck!

Lee: No, I brought them in and laid them down...

Me: WAIT.. I thought you GAVE them to ME!!?!?

Lee: Lee rolling his eyes at me says "I DID!"

ME: I am fixing to slap you if you don't get away from my computer desk!! ( I mean business about my piles of papers!)

Lee: Laughing... they are in this house some where.. WHERE would they be!?

Me: folding up clothes and getting hostile by the second

Lee: Well, I am just going to call the insurance guy and ask if he has the copy

Me: Oh, you mean the copy that is telling him that he was wrong on the appraisal? THAT is really organized Lee!

Lee: Well, YOU have the papers some where in this house.

Me: no I do not have the freaking papers... GET OUT OF THE BILLS.. THOSE ARE BILLS.. GET out of the pile! An ESTIMATE would not be in the BILL pile!

Lee: blah, blah, blah (at this point I ain't even listening any more!) I mean come on!

Me: at this point have folded clothes, put them up, put the clean dishes up, made 2 bed and just picked up in general

Lee: frantically digging in drawers and looking every where but in the refrigerator cause he just KNOWS those papers are in this house

Me: I go out to his truck (the spot that he started the search in the first place) and opened the door, crawled up in the dang thing, pulled down the visor, got the piece of paper, got out of the truck, shut the door, came back in and started rattling the paper like a maniac while he was on the phone with the poor insurance lady..... and I said to him... HERE YA GO!


Me: I guess I had neatly folded it and put it above the visor in your truck!

Lee: rolled his eyes.

Bill will do the very same thing! He even goes through each step..."I got out of the truck, I came into the house, put my briefcase on the table. I specifically remember taking the bill/receipt/insurance/check (take your pick) out of my briefcase and handing it directly to YOU. You were standing in the laundry room (where ELSE would I be?), etc., etc. Then, I go to his briefcase or truck and find it...every stinking time! You said it all, sister....MEN! Hahaha ;o)

Looking forward to getting my bag! I watched for it today, but I guess it's too soon for it to be here yet.

Love ya!

Oh, my gosh!! I am laughing so hard. Glad to know they are ALL crazy! Men.......if they would just let us "do it all" we'd be alright. We have "off limits" corners in our house too. And don't you dare try to handle ANY of the finances.....Lord, what would this world do without us? You made my night!
