Some things we argue about

I take the kids for the day so that he can off cross all the things on the DIY-list that's been hanging on the family notice-board for as long as I can remember.
When I come back, hours and hours later, it's all done, every single thing, but one of the shelves that he's hung isn't straight and of course, that's the first thing I comment on.
- It looks bad. We need to re-do it.
- We? he says. I don't have any more screws, I used them all.
- Great. It's never gonna get done, is it?
He storms off, angry that I haven't mentioned all the other things that he did, and did right. I'm angry because everything in my house looks like it lives in the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

  1. You and me both. But even when I comment on the other things first he doesn't seem to notice, he only sees/hears what was not quite OK. Odd...
