‘I was at my wits end trying to get him to help mostly with yard jobs I struggle to do, I went and got a cheap mobile phone and saved the number under landlord so every time I want something done I text myself that they are coming to check, fix or need access to something so my hubby does the chore I want done 😂😂’
The hack has gone down a treat with the page’s other members, who were blown away by her tactic.
‘Expert level genius,’ writes one. Said another: ‘OMG that is absolutely awesome! God I wish we were renting 🤣’
Added one more: ‘Thanks for the giggle and yep that’s genius 😂🙌🏻’
Said another: ‘🙋♀️🙋♀️ guilty of this as well😂’
Others had their own savvy suggestions to getting your partner to do more around the house.
Said one: ‘This reminds me of the time that my hubby was building something and was so close to finishing it and just stopped working on it. So I thought about making up an email address and sending myself an email from a mock builder quoting the job to finish it off. 🤣🤣🤣🤣’
Added another: ‘Genius. I used a similar trick ..... I would tell him I had organised someone to come do what ever it was that needed doing for $. He hates parting with money so he would get in and do the job immediately. Whatever works I reckon!!’
We couldn’t agree more!
