The wife and I had an all out today. Turns out, I am a lazy bastard and she's just bat-sh!t crazy.

Her biggest complaint of the day, is that I spend too much time outside in the yards. W......T.....F?

She "claims" that it takes away time spent with my three year old and completely excludes my 6 mo old. Of course, she also "claims" that I do little to help with the 6 mo old.

1. The 3 year odl is outside WITH me 90% of the time. HELLO, that is primarily why I am outside in 90*F fooking heat.

2. The other 10% is spent on property upkeep. Yards, gardens, etc....

3. When I do attend to the 6 mo old she takes him away b!tching that "I am doing it wrong" (Her REAL complaint here is that I don't tend to the baby at night, but again, she comes in and takes over before I have the bottle filled when I do).

Okay, that is the preface. Somewhere along the lines between yeaterday and today the keys to her car have been mis-placed. We only realized this afternoon. Of course, I was the last one to drive the car.

I spend the better part of the evening tearing the house apart trying to find the keys. My biggest concern is that I have a bad habit of setting things on the bumper of my truck. Rarely, I forget but I have a couple times. I don;t think I put the keys there but.......

Of course I haven't mentioned this to her. Point here is that, she hasn't raised a finger to look for the keys. And I have only just now given up the search (and gotten on here). I hate this. I feel breached. Like the potential is there that someone could steal the car, break into my home, and rob us blind.

She has no care at all and is, in fact, asleep.

There are still a few places I have yet to triple check but, they are in room with little people sleeping.

So, in summary, she has issues with me spending time outside in my own fooking yard but, when the keys to our house and car go missing it's not such a big deal as to lose any sleep.

Am I the only one who sees a issue with this?

Six month old baby? Would she normally act like this before the pregnancy? My wife had a bout of postpartum around 3-8 months after our first. I was often the recipient of her frustrations during that period. I could not do a damn thing right if my left depended on it. It still sucks and isn't an excuse but, it can point to an underlying problem. Hope you get it worked out, keep your head low in the mean time

So as I am walking out the door this morning I think to my self:
"self, going to work on Monday is like knowing you're going to get kicked in the nuts. You just don't know when or by who"

Nah. No post-partum. She was BS crazy before the kids. Just not 11 year ago.

If you don't find the keys, change all the locks on the house, you can at least do that yourself. I'd call a pro to do the car doors & ignition. Good luck findg those keys man. Regards, GF.

Plus juan for changing all the locks. Keys get lost, it happens. Just deal with it now when it costs a little money rather than taking the risk that someone burglarizes you and you're out money, property, and the feeling of safety.

I lost a set of keys for two weeks once. I eventually found them on the key hook thingy on the wall. But hey! They were hiding behind some other keys!

Yeah. I am going to have to check all my pants too. I have been known to have keys laundered. Once, I lost a key to my gate. A few months later I put on the pants I wore the last day I had that key.

It was in the pocket and was very clean.

Made the wife carry the garage door clicker in her purse. All the inside doors have the sucurity locks (where they only unlock from the inside). I'll have another go at searching for them tonight. If not found, the locks get replaced. To be honest, I'd rather replace the car. It'd prolly be cheaper that way. Fooking import car and outrageously priced keys / parts. And it's a VOLVO, I mean it's not like theses things just got here. And whats more, Volvo is owned by Ford. WTF?

A woman get's married hoping to changer her man, and he never does change.

A man get's married hoping the woman stays the same, but she always changes...

hope you find the keys and things work out for you.

Anyone tried to just get the cylinders replaced (re-keyed) in their house locks?

How does one go about getting the cylinder (core) key? Does Lowes have those (that is where I bought the locks)?
