You: Third request: “I need you to fix the toilet. Please.” Foot tapping.
Him: Watching game. “Not now.” “Woo-hoo, go ‘9ers!” “Later, babe.”
The game, the game, the game. Oh, how you hate the game!
If you’re truthful with yourself, it’s not the game you hate so much as the fact that whatever you want seems to come second to the game. Every time. And there’s nothing you can do about it.
Get that? Nothing you can do about it.
So quit frustrating yourself and resenting him! Let him know before the game the things you’ll need his help with - heck, hand him a list – and then let him be.
Chances are very good that if you will let him be during the game, he’ll be happy to help you – after the game.
