    ... and here is how the conversation went.


    Wife: Where's my extra set of keys? The dog just locked herself in the car.

    Me: Well, they should be in the top left-hand drawer under the kitchen counter.

    (It is well known in our house that we keep extra keys to the vehicles here).

    Wife: Okay, I'll look. THEY'RE NOT THERE!

    Me: Okay, calm down. Think of where you might have put them. I gave you both sets when we bought the vehicle for you..

    (I am trying to get her to retrace her steps here)

    Wife: (Interrupting) YOU AREN'T HELPING!

    Me: Okay, check in the hall table where we put our keys when we get home. You know the little basket.

    Wife: THEY'RE NOT THERE!

    (She isn't calming down.)

    Me: Check in your purse.

    Wife: THAT'S IN THE CAR!

    Me: Okay, so you have an appointment with the Vet right?

    Wife: YES!

    (Even more excited now.)

    Wife: AND I NEED TO PICK UP DIERSEN (our eldest daughter) FROM PRE-SCHOOL!

    Me: Okay, call the Pre-School and tell them I am on my way, tell them it takes about 30 minutes to get there from here and that I will be late. I will take off early and get the child...

    Wife: (Interrupting again) WE NEED TO GET THE DOG'S CAST OFF!

    Me: You need to call the Vet too and cancel the appointment, there is no way to get there on time unless you find the keys.

    Wife: Okay. (Calming down finally. Hangs up without saying good-bye.)

    I start shutting things down here at work, when my wife calls back.

    Wife: I checked the drawer again, I FIND YOUR TRUCK KEYS! I FIND YOUR MOTORCYCLE KEYS! I CAN'T FIND MY KEYS!

    (Okay, I am thinking... Of course you find my extra sets of keys there, THAT'S WHERE WE PUT THEM!) So I say...

    Me: Yes, that's where we keep the extra keys. (I'm thinking, I thought you were calling the Pre-School).

    Wife: WELL MINE AREN'T THERE!

    (I'm thinking, hey I reminded you to put them there when we brought the vehicle home, why are you yelling at me?) But I say...

    Me: Okay, please calm down, I am shutting down and going to pick up the girl...

    Wife: (Hangs up again.)

    I tell my boss what is happening, and she gives the okay to go home. I get back to my desk to pick up my stuff when the phone rings again.

    Wife: I FOUND MY KEYS (she's angry. AT ME!)!

    Me: Well, awesome!

    Wife: GOOD! (Hangs up again!)


    Now my question here is for all the women on the site.

    What did I do wrong? How was it my fault?!! :wtf:

    Yeah, I clearly was at fault by deliberately letting her put them in whatever odd place she found them instead of the drawer that I reminded her to put them in....

    I think...

    Did you ask here WHERE she found them? If she is like my wife, she was holding them in her hand the entire time but because she is so angry, she doesn't realize it! :teeth:

    No, she hung up too quickly. I figured I would report that tomorrow or later tonight depending if I have time for computer fun at home.

    :D

    My wife does this all the time.
    She gets mad at me because I always put MY stuff in the same spot every
    day. She'll throw them here or there, even though I tell her all the time.
    She has even taken the tv remote with her to the bathroom, and you
    can't see the tv in there. I found the damn thing in the car one time.

    I found it in the fridge once. Not the one in the kitchen, the one in the garage.
