A Different Approach?


I totally feel like doing this in our house at times as there are times where I seem to be the only one who knows how to work the fucking dishwasher.  Or know when the trash needs to be taken out. Or when the laundry pile of dirty clothes should actually get washed – and that sometimes, more than one load is required to make that pile of laundry disappear. 

When I showed this image to Garbanzo saying this is the way I feel, his response:

“Cool! You’re going to dress up in a Wonder Woman costume like I always wanted!!!”

Yes, the point was missed.

Maybe if I used the Wonder Woman costume incentive, things would change …..hmmmm….

…..And yes TL, if he does get me into one, you’ll see pictures! Damn geeks in my life! 🙂

  1. You need to tell him that superman better get off his ass and help wonder woman and maybe she will feel like dressing up….lol

    Emmy, I think the costume that I would find most motivating is the Wonder Woman bracelets, headband, and rope of truth. The rest isn’t really all that necessary!

    I’m suddenly motivated to do my dishes. Fantasies abound.

  4. I’m sure the costume would be motivating, but perhaps you should just make Garbanzo a chore chart with stickers and when he fills up the stickers he gets a special treat.

    Where do you find these great images!?!? I love them!

    As for chores around the house, the only thing I’ve found that works is asking for help directly – repeatedly until they get into the habit of it… It may take years…

    Beatings don’t work too well, but it makes me feel better. 🙂

    Maybe you should find and hide the keys to the VW van until he gets on the ball 😉

    My dad once said that a mule desires the carrot and respects the stick..

    First off, I stole the graphic. Fits in with my view of life.

    I think that it’s a good thing that every once in a while you reset the balance. See, someone has to do it. That is what my wife does with me when I get out of line. And most times it hurts just like that….
