I'm new to the board and this topic caught my eye. These stories are so great!
I have a story that I think many women can appreciate. My husband and I purchased a new piece of furniture that required a bit of assembly. He invited his friend over to help him out. My friend and I made lunch while they were working. Of course, the first thing they do is throw out the directions. About an hour into it, we ask the guys if they want any lunch. They're determined to get this put together, and are confident they'll have it done in 30 minutes, so they'll wait til they're done. So, my friend and I went out for a long walk and stopped to get some coffee. We return three hours later to some bandages, bruised fingers and bruised egos. The piece of furniture (it was a trunk to go at the end of our bed), was still in pieces and my husband is on the phone complaining to the store that it was too difficult to put together. Well, my girlfriend and I grabbed the directions and started going through it and an hour later, we had a storage unit put together. My husband and his friend were floored and quite embarrassed. Now he listens to me when I tell him to read the directions.
i also have a second story. This happened about a month ago. My husband teaches at USC as an adjunct professer, which means he has a day job and teaches evening classes. One day, he went to work and left all of his student work for that evening at home. I, like a good wife, offer to meet him at school with all of his papers. I arrived, and it was dark. I was a bit late, but sent him a text message to let him know i had arrived and would be in class shortly. I get a message back that says "Who is this?" I thought he was being funny, so came back with a response, and it got a little racy. Then i walked into his class with a huge grin on my face. He thought I was just happy to see him. Well, I teased him about it after class, and he looked at me confused. He never got any of my text messages. I looked at my phone log mortified. I had been texting with a complete stranger who was one number off from my husband's number. I haven't heard from that person since, so I'm sure they were having a good time with me :P
