Oh Mr. Jetplane...

You are indeed the love of my life... but seriously dude... I want to ring your neck sometimes.


Mr. Jetplane left for Illinois Sunday morning. He is going to be gone for 2 weeks. I'll meet up with him on Wednesday evening, leave Chicago on Sunday, meet up on Friday afternoon in St. Louis, and we'll be driving home together on Sunday AM.


So he made it up safe and sound but called me to ask me to bring his coat, he forgot...


Well, Mr. Jetplane I'd be happy to but that means I'm going to have to check my luggage.



Mr: "WHAT!?! You're going to be there for only 4 days!"

Me: "Uh Yeah. 4 days of clothes, my coat, and your Columbia coat! How does that fit into my small carry on?"

Mr: "Oh, ok good point. I'll borrow a coat from E."

Me: "Yeah! That's best!"

Fast forward to Monday morning....I send Mr. Jetplane a text message..."Did you remember to bring your suit for the wedding?"


I get a text message back..."DOPE!"

Yes, so Mrs. Jetplane has to some how figure out how to get her hubby's suit, shirt, tie, and shoes into her carry on bags for her trips to Chicago and St. Louis.


So I have decided to bring half of the stuff on Wednesday and the other half on next Friday. Am I totally annoyed... hell yes because you know what he didn't forget....all the baseball game tickets, his CUBS wear, and his XBOX (since someone is uploading all this cool, free, sh&t on it... yeah priorities are totally in order...


UGH Men!!

Yes!!!

This is how I have felt for the past week+ with my husband. We are moving and it seems like he can't remember/figure out how to do ANYTHING.

It is driving me crazy because then I have to go fix everything!

Haha this post cracked me for many, many reasons. First of them being the picture and second of all, the XBOX, seriously?

That is totally a guy thing! Good thing you are there to take care of him!

Via said...

Haha! That's fantastic! B recently bought a new car, I said "Does it have power locks?" He said "I don't know. But it has cupholders." Man are fantastic ;]

Silly boys. Mr. Potts "forgets" to pack things too. he wonders why my carry-on weighs so much more than his!

Sweet Simplicity said...

What would he do without you!?!

Ashley said...

I'd like to say this sounds shocking but it sounds surprisingly similar to my very own husband..... sad day.

And I'd just check your bag.

Needs Help said...

So typical that a boy can remember his xbox but not his suit, hehe

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Haha yeah! Boys would lose their heads if they weren't attached.

And ... one of the many reasons why I might end up single by the end of the evening ...

RLA left on a trip today. Called as soon as he had landed and said I forgot my jacket, my book, my gum, and my toothbrush. Can you fedex them tomorrow?

Seriously ... you are asking me to fedex your GUM?

I feel your pain!

New Girl on Post said...

Oh yes! This sounds exactly like something my husband would do.

Does yours expect you to always know where all his stuff is? Because mine does that ALL the time!
