My Wife Might Need an Intervention

Posted on December 9, 2015 I Written By

My name is John and I'm a working dad with 4 beautiful children. I'm a full time blogger and entrepreneur. These are my musings. I hope you enjoy.

After almost 13 years of marriage, you’d think you’d know your wife. At least I thought I knew the Crash Wife pretty well. You know what annoys her. You know what she likes.

I’m not sure why, but something’s changed with the Crash Wife. I think the change can best be described by a picture. Here it is in all it’s glory:

Crash Wife - Trash Can Placement

Can you see what’s wrong?

Seriously, I can’t even understand this picture. This is 13 years of habits that she’s breaking and I’m not sure why?

I’m really not sure what to make of it. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? Did she change her mind? Why is this change happening?

I imagine a few of you following along at home aren’t exactly sure what I’m talking about. That’s ok. You haven’t had the 13 years of blissful marital history that we’ve had to inform your eyes.

I think that this image might clarify the situation:

Seriously, what happened? The woman who can’t stand to see a single useful computer or TV wire visible is now ok with the trash can being out in the open. We’re talking about ugly, putrid, dirty, trash out in the open where everyone that comes to visit can come and see it.

Personally, I’m fine with the trash being out and easily accessible. Sure I have to break 13 years of putting trash under the sink, but I grew up with trash cans out in the wild for most of my life. I’m just surprised she’s now suddenly interested in making the change.

Next thing you know, she’s going to be ok with us leaving our shoes near the door where everyone can see them too. I’m not sure what I’ll do if she says she starts liking the cereal boxes on top of the fridge.
