He Did What? Wednesday

Welcome, Glowing ones, to the first ever installment of 'He Did What? Wednesday' - Hooray! High five!

Ah but I hear you whisper, "G-lady, what exactly is 'He Did What? Wednesday' and why must you always put question marks mid-sentence? Doesn't it make your spell checker go funny?"

Well, my pretties, the answer (to the first bit) is simple:

Every Wednesday I'll be featuring a story from a different blogger lamenting the annoying yet strangely endearing tales of their husbands/partners/boyfriends/brothers/fathers/sons' monumental screw ups that make us roll our eyes and say "He did what?!".

I'm gonna point out right off the bat that this isn't about man-bashing. I will more than happily take a 'She Did What!?', I'll even edit my little button. This is about exposing face palm moments, not having a bitch session.

What little button? This little button:

I'm gonna kick things off by sharing a little snippet of Map Guy's most recent shenanigans that left me reeling and thinking "He did WHAT!?"

A few weeks ago, my darling, lovely, talented (OK I'll stop sucking up) Map Guy was washing the Glow-mobile. When this guy says he's going to wash the car you can pretty much guarantee you won't see him for the rest of the day. Hours upon hours of washing, drying, polishing, buffing, dusting, spraying and oiling. I'm tired just thinking about it.

But he enjoys doing it and I enjoy having a car that could be mistaken for a mirror on wheels.

So he comes in, after SIX HOURS of work and throws something in the kitchen sink to be washed. It was black and almost unrecognizable... he'd used my bloody pastry brush to detail the inside of the car, then used it to clean the rims!

When questioned as to why he had used something that is used on food on the dusty, dirty car, he responded; "We didn't have any other brushes. What? It was the right size and everything. Did the job."

Thanks, Map Guy. I'd send him an invoice for the new pastry brush but somehow I think next time he'll send me an invoice for six hours of car detailing!

Send your 'He Did What?' (or 'She Did What!?') submissions to and you too could get your hands on that funky button.

Next week: Parental Parody wonders if husbands and makeup mix

  1. AHAHAHA.... I won't let M read this because he might get ideas.

  2. I'm loving this idea!! Can't wait for next week!

  3. Great idea for Wednesdays. I can't wait to hear more stories about helpless hubbies.

  5. Yes, please do create a "She did what?" button, both for the men with female partners and the women with female partners.

    I look fwd to reading them all :)

  6. Oh this is going to be ACE and make me feel like my OH is actually normal at the same time. Thank you!

    Oh yeah, and.... he did WHAT?

  7. Will do chicky, everyone is welcome to show off their eye rolling, face-palm moments - LGBT community is not immune from these WTF-isms so they can't be excluded here! x

  8. Send me something Emma, would love to feature you!

  9. Haha! Love this concept! May just have to get that little brain of mine out of placenta mode and into normal mode and submit something soon!

  10. I love it!!! It makes me go, that is my husband! I have quite a few! and one I still can't believe he did!

  11. Oh yes. SO been there. Except mine uses them in kerosene to wash out engine parts.
    I gave in after a few years and just asked him to tell me when he needed a new one, so he would never need to use mine. ;-)
