    DH asked me today, "Do you have three dollar bills?"

    "Yes."

    "Can I have two? I just have fives."

    "If you need 2, why'd you ask for three?"

    He didn't really answer me, just kinda talked about the field fees for the indoor RC airfield aka the high school gym. [​IMG]

    Anyone else have a spouse or SO that asks odd questions like that?

    No i have one that starts a story never finishes it cause he side tracks to something else then when I ask him to finish he say finish what. Drives me NUTS. I think men think in fragments. No offense to any men here. Or... maybe my DH IS trying to drive me nuts [​IMG]

    Oh busted! [​IMG] I know I probably have given my DH that look before mostly he sees the back of my head as I am typing. No really he does get side tracked alot even when I do want to here the story.

    Quote:He didn't want to take your last dollar bill, of course. Otherwise you'd be the one with fives and no ones.

    Pretty plain if you ask me. [​IMG]

    Quote:Mine does this, too. Especially when we are building something. He will start "wonder if we..." then he is off in his own little world and running it thru his head. Drives me NUTS!!!! I end up walking away from him, because I can't help if he won't tell me what he needs.

    So, if anyone develops a mind reader, please let me know, I will be first in line!

    In a view from the other gender, my wife does this to me all of the time. I think, "Is this a rhetorical question?" Heck, they are all rhetorical or illogical or maybe she is trying to drive me nuts? Nuttser? Now that we are both 75% deaf it has become even more interesting.[​IMG]
