    Oh My Word! My family is driving me crazy. Why is it no one can actually take the time to look for whatever it is they want before they ask me where it is. I mean how much effort can it take a teenaged boy to move a few things around in the fridge before yelling "Hey Mom where's the milk?" How hard can it really be to find? It's not hiding from you! Good Grief.

    My pet teenager is 18 - I feel ya.

    Sometimes I swear he couldn't find his own head if I didn't tell him where it was first.

    I'm joining this club! But I have to tell you, the worst offender, by far, is the DH. Has he really lived in this house for 20 years? There are cupboards and closets that I think he has never opened!? (He doesn't know where we keep toilet paper cause he won't open the cabinets in the bathroom-he might see feminine hygiene products! Horrors!)

    Oh certainly DH is one of the worst at this! It's like these people think I have some magical index of every item in the house. And when they say to me "where did you put my______________" I just wonder to myself, do they think I run about the house while they're at work and school hiding things from them just for my own amusement? I should actually try that one day. It could be fun!

I will tell him second shelf, move the mayo!! I need to find a way to break him of his...WHERE IS THE___?? [​IMG]

    what about asking what you are doing when you are IN the shower? My usual answer is gardening.

    I have two replies to our kids for where is the milk...

    1) In the goat in the barn

    2) The fridge is 21 cubic feet....how hard can it be?

    or the generic...

    Its wherever YOU left it.
