so that he could identify what went with what...after every letter I uploaded, I did the wifely duty and went out to see how he was doing and offer my help, trying hard not to walk on anything TOO you know did quite a few letters, so I did quite a few "sidewalk supervisor" visits. After a few trips I heard him complaining that some of the stuff did not have the letters on them and he was having to try to figure out by the diagram where these things went......took longer, but he figured it out..........well, when I got up this morning, I picked up my socks to throw them in the wash and on the bottom was M, J & T little stickys............LOL!!! I ain't telling him........are you?

Update......I have stronger magnets on my cabinet now so I was able to take my towel out....YEA!! Flooring has begun in the hallway and I already heard "you got to be kidding".....I don't even want to know what he was referring to, I am just staying right here typing............I hear a loud saw thing.....there will be blood..........

LOL........LenaMae.....that is so typical, mine ran a screw from the bathroom into our bedroom when installing a medicine cabinet and I didn't even swipe any of his stickers!!!!!!!

You want us to tell him what?? I didn't see or hear anything to tell him?

by killiecrankie 03 Sep 2011

Loved reading this.I don't trust my husband to put things together because he usually doesn't read the instructions properly & always has something left over. He is only needed at times for holding things in place while I screw the screws in or occassionally when brute strength is required because the holes do not line up

by stork 03 Sep 2011

THanks for the wonderful laugh. I have vision of your hubby while he is working on this and then I think of myself when just last month I was putting together a desk and two cabinets that were the same way. I really must have been some picture crawling around on the floor. Darn...those elusive letters anyway! LOL

by flomacm 03 Sep 2011

My lips are zipped! Too funny. Thanks for the smile.

by shirlener88 03 Sep 2011

I promise - I will not tell him.

by nanniesara 03 Sep 2011

Too funny, love it if he is like mine he gets irritable when he is working on things so I would rather do it myself. But I can see you now oops those darn stickers. LOL Sara

by justonlyme 03 Sep 2011

What you need to do is put those stickers on HIS socks. Then be surprised to find them there. :)
I have never heard of to-be-assembled items coming with little stickers. I guess that beats the diagrams that have been through three language translations and drawn by someone who doesn't exactly understand the instructions. I have one of those microwave cabinets that have the magnetic doors that don't stay closed. I put a wooden spoon through the handles. It has been that way for the last couple of decades, and seems to work just fine.

MMffffff, love the idea of putting the stickers on HIS socks, hee hee hee, oh, I could just hear him!!

It is always nice to have a good laugh! Just hope he got the m,j, and t in the correct place.

by jrob Moderator 03 Sep 2011

That's too funny! Good thing you didn't have to get down to look for a screw on your knees with the soles of your thieving socks showing!

by cfidl 03 Sep 2011

OK new here - who is him - he must be on this site.

by lani02 03 Sep 2011

Funny story, no tell, keep up with the Ripple Alpha, great alpha.

by sewbadly 03 Sep 2011

I won't tell your husband, but I DID tell mine. We both got a good chuckle out of it. Then, as I read further and learned the doors don't stay shut... that was just the icing on the cake.
Great story.

by blueeyedblonde 03 Sep 2011

That is just so funny! Still laughing. Well, at least haaving leftover letters is better than leftover screws!
I won't tell him - my lips are sealed! hehe

by hightechgrammy 03 Sep 2011

That's a great one, Vick! I wouldn't confess either, some things are just better told to girl friends! he he

by quilter124 03 Sep 2011

I promise I won't tell, let's just hope he never reads Cute posts. :-)))

by sewdoctor 03 Sep 2011

Too funny, hope he never finds out....or maybe he would see the humor in it too...Glad that someone else's life is like mine!

by catsnhorses 03 Sep 2011

ROTFLOL! Vicki, what a hoot! Why is it that guys think they can do all of this?? Must be something in the male gene.

Re your socks... what stickers?? ;)

Good luck with the curtain rods tonight! Yikes!

by sdrise 03 Sep 2011

Too funny... Tell him much later so you can bioth laugh together! Suzanne

by basketkase 03 Sep 2011

By the way.....the doors won't stay closed on the cart........mmmm, maybe M, J or T got mixed up somewhere...LOL I have a towel threw the handles right now to keep them closed so the cats can't get into it......he is going to big box store later to get a stronger magnet.....the magnet on this thing can barely hold a sewing pin.......LOL!!

Soooo funny! Make sure the magnets are sticking out far enough to contact the plate on the doors. Ask me how I know... my late DH was turning the air blue assembling one of these things once, had the things back too far to make contact...he also managed to screw a couple loops of the rug into the top...lord only knows how they survive, surely it was a woman who invented the wheel, tools, etc. hee hee hee. Hugs, Marji

by lindalee757 03 Sep 2011

LOL-omg Vicki, that's a riot!!
I never let my husband assemble those things by himself anyway-too many words fly and it drives me insane-I do the assembly-sometimes with a few choice words of my own =O)-
And now that I think of it-in the past whenever he was going to do any of those things in the past-I started out as "HE" will do it, then "WE" will do it-then I end up doing it..... Men-they can be so entertaining to have around.
BTW Vicki- my husband's name is Jim also

That is really funny. Sounds like something that would happen to me. Thanks for the giggle this morning. Hugs, Judy

by airyfairy 03 Sep 2011

I promise I will not tell him.........

by leenova54 03 Sep 2011

I will take your secret to the grave, lol! Poor man must have thought he was losing it. My best way for hubby not to have problems putting things together is I put them together, lol! He really is helpless!
