Not on the floor again

I just do not know why my husband will go into our bathroom to take a shower and throw his dirty clothes on the floor, right next to the hamper. Is is going to kill him to stretch the extra centimeter? If he was trying to stretch something else you know he would go the distance. I've seen him working harder to flip magazine pictures while he's in the bathroom but he can't reach that distance to pick up after himself. What am I to do? I thought about tying him to the hamper until he is trained. Any thoughts?

You know I have had my hubby for thirty five years and he still isnt house trained,he is good,and far better than he used to be,but he still drops his plates in the sink for the maid to wash--the maid being me--I dont mind at all now ,there are just the two of us here,but he always puts his dirty laundry into the basket,so that is one area where he is fully trained.He is vry good at the shopping too,we often need bits and pices as i do most of my shopping online,and he loves to go to the shops and get them,in fact he hasnt long been over to the sper market to get fruit juice and milk.

Your description is a dream to me. It gives me hope as far as, we only have 9 years of marriage under us. Hopefully by the 35th year he too will have learned how to put his clothes in the hamper:) Thanks for your response.

Hahahahaha,looool can't stop myself from laughing..you are funny! I notice that it's in their nature to throw their things on the floor, like they find no other better place for them...maybe it's their way of expressing their manhood,or something.. or rebelious attitude,don't know:))) My boyfriend always leaves things on the floor too, I kind of got used to picking them up..it's like part of my daily routine. There are times when I get annoyed too, like for example when I decided not to move one finger till he notices how the house would look like if I didn't always clean after him....and it passed like a month or so, and he started to get angry on the things that he stepped on, on the floor,or by those that he stumbled in..hehe.. that was a funny view, I told him they are not mine,it was him who left them there..he was really grumpy and asked me why I didn't pick them up,I told him I was too lazy.. So in the end, he woke up on a sunday morning and vacuumed, cleaned the floor, the drawers, the balcony,threw away the usefull stuff and papers and all, and I decided to give him a hand by cleaning the dust off the furniture and cleaning the bathroom. Now the house is messy again,but ow well... we will probably clean together when he starts stumbeling over things again

Well congradtulations on finding a system that works for you. I think it is great he gave in and also great you decided to help when he began to help. Isn't love grand? But seriously, I think that my husband lays his clothes around to mark his territory. If you think about it, He is in the military so he goes to pt to workout then returns home to throw his smelly clothes on the floor. This, I believe, is used to scare other males away, LOL:)
