    That is how I explain things when DH and I are talking about the same thing, but neither of us understands what the other is saying.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    We got rained out of the fields so he has been getting the electrical done in the upstairs of the new house.
    Well he asks me some questions about the lighting for the kitchen. I thought we already covered this? He has forgotten. So I explain again. Then the dimmer switch is brought up but I'm now thinking about something else so when he says toggle switch I look at him blankly. What? [​IMG] He finally tells me what he is asking. Oh you're talking about that! YES! [​IMG]
    Don't get me started on the kitchen island. This one has been fun. Talked to him about framing the base where the cabinets will go and then put up the 2x4 frame for the breakfast bar behind it so he can run the electrical for the outlets that will go there. His turn for a blank look. I had draw a picture, twice. [​IMG] He left.[​IMG]

    He went into town to get more boxes and supplies to finish this out. Hope he remembers the boxes for the electrical radiant heat pads that are going to in the 2 bathrooms.[​IMG]

    He mentioned something to me about voltage and watts and I looked at him and told him that went so far over my head it didn't stir any dust.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] He just sighed and tried to explain it. Told him to forget it I would never understand what he was talking about.

    That sounds like Ken explaining to me how to repair a computer. I do not care, just do it for me. Of course he tells me to unplug the thing and shake my left leg for 10 seconds and plug it back in and it will work. [​IMG]

    Oh my this sounds like DH and I. We took his car to the shop this morning for state inspection and other work. I followed him in my car and when we got home I left my car out of the garage as we expected to return to pick up his car later in the day. We got a call from the shop that they needed a part they didn't have so the car will not be ready until tomorrow. So I tell him "I guess I'll put the car inside now". His reply, "I don't know it depends on whether they have room". HUH??????? He apparently thought that I asked if they would keep his car inside for the night.
