January 6th: Divorce Day

Recommended Posts

Apparently, a surge of divorces are instigated in the first week of January.

According to the  Bradford Telegraph and Argus, the solicitor LPS has surveyed the most annoying habits a partner had during Christmas. I suspect that most of those surveyed were women:

On their phone too much - 25.45%

• Not helping with the household chores -16.07%

• Drinking too much - 12.95%

• Spending too much money - 9.38%

• Having to spend time with your partners family - 5.80%

• Sleeping too much - 5.36%

• Watching too much TV - 4.91%

• Not showering - 4.46%

• Expecting you to wrap all the family Christmas presents - 3.57%

• Leaving loo seat up - 3.13%

• Having to prepare Christmas dinner without their help - 2.68%

• Leaving you to look after the children - 2.68%

• Spoiling the children with unhealthy food/treats - 1.34%

• Eating food planned for Christmas -1.34%

• Not getting dressed - 0.45%

• Having to spend time with your partner's friends - 0.45%

Obviously, I'm not guilty of any of these inadequacies, or only guilty of those that I don't consider to be inadequacies (i.e. all of them😉).

How about you?

I'll put my hand up to the present wrapping thing. Actually I delegate all matters Christmas to her, for two very good reasons:

1. She absolutely loves it.

2. I absolutely hate it.

BTW today, divorce day, is also her birthday.

And when they found our shadows

Grouped around the TV sets

They ran down every lead

They repeated every test

They checked out all the data on their lists

And then the alien anthropologists

Admitted they were still perplexed

But on eliminating every other reason

For our sad demise

They logged the only explanation left

This species has amused itself to death

No tears to cry no feelings left

This species has amused itself to death

Could be awkward if they hosted guests.

I wonder what percentage was "Not helping with any DIY or not mending the car" ?

This one I can never understand.  If women leave it down then men have to raise it up ... so what's the difference  in women having to put it down ?

I have had the toilet seat argument with my missus but never managed to win.As with most arguments,the yearning for a quiet life (on my part) usually gives her the upper hand.

January is said to be the busiest time of year for solicitors dealing with divorce. The period after the summer holidays is said to be the second busiest.

Any snipes posting on here may be able to confirm or contradict these alleged facts.

It is gives her the UPPER hand then she should lift the seat while she is putting it up ! 😉

Try telling her that it's more hygienic having to touch a seat that's up and not been recently used (and can be done so with just the tip of one finger) than to actually grab hold of one that has recently been in use in order to raise it ! 😉

As I said to her, "I use the toilet with the seat up, so I put it up. You use the toilet with the seat down, so you put it down. I don't complain about the seat being down, when I want it up, so shut your mouth when I leave it up".

Divorce hearing next Thursday, in Haiti.

I have to clean the toilet because I don't trust the little woman to operate technological things like toilet brushes.

**OW** 'no'...... **STOP**

100% agree

Seperate but related topic... One thing I am noticing is gender neutral toilets with cubicles only

Urinals mean we men get the advantage if less toilet queueing.... Someone somewhere has sen that as unfair to women? I. E. If women have to wait then so should men

If women want the same waiting time, that's fine.  (ie Men will generally be in and out of the cubicle a lot quicker ... so in future let's just take our time and make the women wait as long as we have to for them)

EDIT .. I'm sure we've all seen when a woman has gone into a gents' toilet .... yet have a man doing the opposite and he would be branded as a pervert even though he couldn't see anything untoward due to there only being cubicles in there.
