This week on Couple's Corner, Marce Liz asks: Did your spouse ever tell you that he will do it tomorrow, and yet it was left undone? I would definitely answer YES!
I have always been a patient person, or so I thought. Never had I imagined that I would be otherwise until I asked my husband to do something for me. He would just say OKAY and with that answer, I would of course expect that he would "obey" me and do it right away. But no... he wouldn't do it right away and I end up doing what I asked him to do because I can't wait for his "later" or "soon". He always tells me that I am very impatient. I always expect him to do the things I ask of him right away especially if it's house chores. I don't want things left undone before the day ends. I mean, if you can do it right away, why wait for later, right?
I guess the same goes for me. I am also guilty of saying Okay but never really getting around to doing things and sometimes, even forgetting them. I guess being the OC-type, you would expect me to be impatient if things don't get done the way I expect and want them too. And that drives my husband crazy. But he knows me too well that he just lets me be. An argument will only ruin our day and that is what we try to avoid, knowing that there's only the two of us that we can count on. Come to think of it, it has always been my husband who has always been patient with my crazy way of doing things. My, I am such a lucky wife!
