WFMW: How to Get Your Husband to Do Stuff

It’s Works for Me Wednesday here at Life with the Casterlines. This is where I share little tidbits of *hopefully* helpful information. And please feel free to leave your own tidbits in the comments! Today’s post focuses on how to -ahem- get your husband to do stuff….

The Problem: My laptop continually freezes up and crashes. Not a good thing when you need it for your ministry or when you’re trying to do a blog post
The Solution: Hubby needs to wipe laptop clean, re-install operating system, and possibly do a dance around a campfire so laptop will continue to work
****Problem persists for over a year….with no Solution****
Step One: Over-exaggerate your reaction every time laptop messes up. If that doesn’t work, proceed to Step Two.
Step Two: Find a $1,200 laptop and request it for your birthday which is coming up in *one month*
Step Three: Explain (again) why the new laptop is needed
Step Four: Watch your laptop get repaired the very next day and admire your handy work.

This method will work for almost anything that needs to be accomplished. Hubby forgets to change the oil in your car? Start sending him prices for a Mercedes. Need him to give the dog a bath? Dump dirt all over his pillow and blame it on how dirty Fido is. Tired of ironing his clothes? Accidentally burn a hole through his favorite shirt.
Any questions?
Note: This is 100% not-godly behavior and was meant as a joke. Ladies, let’s please not be conning our men into doing all of the housework. But seriously, if it’s been a year and your laptop/car/dishwasher still isn’t working…..well, you have the game plan! Hop to it!
Also Note: Thanks for the fixed laptop, darling!  Xoxoxo
Functioning laptops work for me! :)  :)
