"Guys", do your spouses volunteer you to do things???????

Recommended Posts

Ok,

So...here is my question......

Do you "guys" get upset when your spouses volunteer you to do something?

Well...it really has not been an issue in my household.....not yet....or I should say not until Erik reads this.....

See, my friend is pregnant and her husband who loves drinking with Erik....well he needs help moving some things around and I have volunteered Erik to help him out.....:) Erik, just doesn't know it yet????? :)

So....with that being said.... what do you all do when your spouses volunteer you to do something?

Do you do it with a smile on your face or do you get pissy with them?

I thought I would ask, because I know this might be an issue.....:)

My wife gets me all worked up before she asks me to help some one. She knows this way I have to say yes or I get cut off.

I'm not recommending this practice but it has always worked on me.


GOOD things happen for a reason......

Hey, didn't you notice my "Always with a smile ----------------"?????????

She volunteers you for a "favor", you, in return, get to volunteer Kgirl for a "favor". What in the world did you think the "smile" was for -------moving stuff??? uh, uh. And its a good thing it was posted here -------- that's called committment and fair play.

This is true, the unseen fortunes for some would call a misfortune. Now I'm wondering what would have been a better way to find out on this board since we live in the same house together, by thread or a PM :vio (33):

My wife volunteers me for stuff all the damn time. Don't matter though....I married way over my head and she gladly puts up with my ass and all my buddies......I wouldn't if I were her, but that is why I don't hesitate to oblige her with these requests.

We are on SPRING BREAK till next week so I think I'll go punch a few holes in the ole liver at the beach.......Life is soooooooooo good.

Still wish Erik had the summer get together earlier in the summer. I probably can't come on August 15 dammit..... but that shouldn't curb the enthusiasm. The concept is awesome and it is something that should quite possibly be alternated between coasts.

    • 1st of all while its great to use as an excuse. I am not sure as what I would like to consider myself a legitimate business that excuse to not pay does not fly. I cant use that excuse with Grimco, Glantz aluminum suppliers , Ford , the bank.   Hmmm I will just have to put on my big boy pants and get into the line of credit.  Our large signs we are using our money for 60-90 days by the time the project starts through delivery then getting paid.    Besides what if they never get paid. Nope sorry thats not how this works.
    • Paul;   Your statement   " When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? "   You are exactly on point. How the hell do I know for sure when you have been paid? This comes after being so stupid that I would agree to be paid when paid in the first place.   I just received a query from "FacilitySource" to become a contractor. They have just been consumed by CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis), a large player in the real estate/ real estate management area. I received a solicitation sheet from them and I won't even insult the intelligence of those on this venue by posting it.   The response section was very definite but the payment portion was somewhere out in the Cosmos. You could  be  paid only if they got paid and then pay you at some mysterious date in the future. They had a list of discounts that they wanted to take under circumstances that were totally unverifiable. You also had to sign away all rights as a contractor while shielding them from everything. Incredible............   But if I were to sign this nonsense, I would be getting exactly what I deserve.   Just for the record, they intimated that they wanted me to provide service to Lowe's, along with some other familiar major accounts in my area.   I politely refused the offer but thought to myself that if a person made me an offer like this to my face I would have dispensed justice with a broken car antenna right on the spot.   Peace out!  
    • Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers. Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone  And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer  Plus a lot of other nonsense    When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? Here is the answer sent to me                  Hello,   I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out.   Thank you!   Dominique DiPalo Vendor Relations RKB Maintenance Solutions 330 Motor Parkway, Suite 306 Hauppauge, NY 11788 P:  516-612-7821 x 413| F: 516-706-1393 E:  DDiPalo@rkb247.com | W: www.rkb247.com
