Confiscate the upstairs bathroom plugs,or you too will have water coming through your downstairs light sockets.

I have to agree with the sentiments of that.

I've lost count of the number of times I've had to deal with some issue created by my wife and as I've cleaned up I've said "Why would you even do that?". The reply is usually "I don't know!"

OH likes to be helpful by washing the dishes. However, when he starts the water running, he gets the urge to go to the toilet. He leaves the tap flowing while he goes to the toilet, then forgets about washing up and disappears into the study. Have managed to dodge an overflow so far.

There are times when he remembers, does the dishes and then forgets to pull the plug leaving the water to get cold and greasy. yuk!

When the hospital issues him with PJ's because the other patients don't like his lack of inhibition and wandering about naked - especially as he has a stoma.........

Yes, I remember we had the builders in the kitchen and theyt had just finished and left. Mum went upstairs and flooded the sink and the water came pouring through the new lights in the kitchen, onto the new units and my husband's laptop... Fun times, not!

We were fortunate that we learned the plug "rule" when MIL flooded the kitchen so we only had the downstairs to deal with cleaning up. ALL the plugs were taken away after that.

Or dear, the dreaded deafness issue.

My wife has double hearing aids and if I speak in a normal tone/volume I'm told that she can't hear me. If I raise my voice to be heard I'm told to stop shouting.

As to the daily search for the aids!!!!!! I sometimes hang a towel over my shoulders to wipe the condensation from the steam that comes out of my ears.😆
