Mr. Petals?... he doesn't miss a beat "We must have a new garbage man working on the truck". According to my crazy husband, this new guys 'signature' is turning ONE pail upside down, which is turning Mr. Petals inside out! A few weeks ago he comes inside all gruff ( i think he even grunted). "AGAIN! Why they have to turn the pail upside down, I have NO Idea! makes it more difficult for me now! " Then a few days later he says to me (as if it's the first I am hearing it..) "This must be this new guys signature...One up and one upside down, it's so stupid!" I resisted saying 'You told me this already'... (ie..see 'marriage is a marathon' post below.)
A few days ago when we're driving down our street... he points out SEVERAL homes in our neighborhood... YUP... One down and the others UP! AGAIN.... he tells me "look..LOOK at this... this is this BASTARDS signature!" I HAD to finally say... "honey you've told me this already,I know, I know.. it's his SIGNATURE garbage pail maneuver, he's trying to leave his mark all over our town.
YESTERDAY was my breaking point, but thankfully I broke into a fit of laughter instead of screaming at him... when he came in all irritated and said "this F***ing garbage man... this must be his signature move... one up one down.. what the hell? " I was washing dishes at the time and literally FELL over into my kitchen sink hysterically laughing!! At that point ... he realized he had said this to me BEFORE! i pointed out...MaNY times before and he went into a fit of laughter! I said... is this how our old age is going to be??
I guess as my memory gets worse, I won't even notice his repetitiveness. (unless he is standing on his head)
