Dear Abby: Lazy Slob Is Feeling Lonely

garden

Dear Abby: I am a 31-year-old wife and stay-at-home mother. My husband, “Jake,” works 40-plus hours a week. My daughter, 2, keeps me on my toes. In the evenings and on weekends, Jake does yard work. I hate it because I’m with our daughter all day, every day, and he expects me to watch her while he’s outside. I dislike yard work and don’t like being outside unless I am completely comfortable. I also have health issues that keep me from being as active as I would like. I feel my resentment and anger growing over this issue. Jake says it is necessary for us to have a garden. But why must I have all the responsibility of caring for our daughter? I’d like it if Jake would give up on some of the outside activities. What do you suggest?

Okay, I’m focusing on these two lines: “I dislike yard work and don’t like being outside unless I am completely comfortable. I also have health issues that keep me from being as active as I would like.”

These tell me everything I need to know. Your are super fat and he can’t stand looking at you. Try weight watchers, tubby.
