By now I’m sure most of you have read my now infamous guide to How to Successfully Nag Your Husband. When I wrote it I was most concerned with a wife’s needs when it comes to nagging, even though I found my arguments to be very fair. But now thanks to this awesome Should You Bring It Up O Meter I found over on Spousonomics I’ve decided it may be time to look at The Man’s side of things – particularly when it comes to my “professional” nagging. The truth is, even though my tactics work most times, according to this chart I’m breaking a lot of rules to earn the success.
I’m not sure how I really feel about that. On one hand, I feel bad that I am guilty of quite a few of these “Drop It” offenses, but then on the flip side I also feel like based on our schedules if I follow these rules I may never get a word in with The Man. Ha! All in all I think it’s great advice for married couples but I have to admit that having a drink or two before I go toe to toe with my husband about a hot topic sometimes helps me drive my point home without caving too soon and I have to bring up something at least three times before he’ll even start to listen. So where does that leave me? In the drop it zone? Ha! The jury’s still out on this one.
Were you privy to these nagging wife guidelines? Are you guilty of not dropping things when you should? Tell me I’m not alone here ladies!
