So my new method was to tell my husband I cannot do something and ask if he can do it. Basically, I believe men like solving things, being the Mr. Fix-It, and especially helping more when a woman says she cannot do it.
I bought a few cabinet shelves from IKEA that required putting the stands together with the screws. It is very simple and would take less than 5 minutes. But instead doing it myself I asked Alok if he can - to which he obviously agreed. This is how he helped:
After the job was finished, until the next day - the tool box, the screw driver, the cabinet shelf, the instruction sheet - everything was lying right there in the corner where he was sitting and working on it. So basically, asking him to do it was pointless since I had to clear up by myself and he only increased my work.
However much of a self-proclaimed expert in human psychology, most of the times the cunning strategies I plan do not work on him. This time too, the plot backfired. Good lord, is there any hope at all?
