Household Repair Challenge

So yesterday, 2 things happened at the house: the microwave died and then the laundry room lights went out. Weird how they happened around the same time though.

I told the hubs about both yesterday. He said he’d take care of it. The only thing he’s done about either issue so far, is that he got out the step-ladder last night and removed the lightbulb cover in the laundry room. And that’s it.

Lol, now here’s the challenge part: how long will it take him to actually take care of BOTH issues? I don’t have a prize for the winner, but thought it would be interesting to see what people think of the situation. Can you all relate?

He does have today off work too, so this is literally a 3 day weekend for him.

I’m not going to poke or nag at him to do it so that won’t be a factor. I even hunted down all the paperwork and owner’s manual stuff for the microwave to help him out.

Some background info… he does have a tendency to put-off stuff like this forever, and never do it until I can’t stand it anymore and have a breakdown. But I’m going to do my best to control myself here and see how long his natural tolerance for household items being broken is…

So what do you all think? And, I’ve never done a poll before so I hope this works!

  1. I couldn’t help but laugh at this. My husband does the SAME thing!! And it’s always with the little things that I want done. And there’s been times when he’ll sweep the floor and leave the broom and dustpan sitting right beside the closet instead of putting them up. Drives me insane! 🤣🤣

    1. THIS! Lol, does he also leave doors open? Like, leave the pantry door wide open when he gets something out of it, and then also never returns the item when he’s done with it? Mine does the same with cabinets and drawers… never fully closes them. **shakes head**

  2. Once, both of my toilets broke (separate unrelated issues) within an hour of each other.

    One of them was a fairly easy fix. The other, not so much, and that one was old and had other issues, so after a few months of having an Out of Order sign on that bathroom, I taught myself to replace a toilet. The old toilet is now a planter in the back yard.
