When did nagging become second nature ?
The good intentions are always there, at the beginning of any relationship. Yet the slope towards " Nag-Dom " seems to be very slippery and quick. Once on it, it gets hard to stop.
Why should a discarded and dirty sock ( just an example ), languishing in your ' walkway ' around the bedroom cause you to make a ' nagging ' comment ? Or even the collage of wet and used towels on the bathroom floor. Are these instances really worth losing your rag over ? Not, I'd say, but at the time a totally different story.
At the time, thoughts like
- why can't he just pick it up.
- WHY can't he see it lying there ?
- I am going to leave it there until it grows mouldy !
- He makes me a nag.
There are some instances where the ' Poor Lamb ( husband ) ' can't be blamed. If you do a bit of detecting and visit his parents, you quickly get an idea about his habits. Yes, there is a mother running circles around your man. Picking up his dirty laundry, making him food at any time of the day and / or he is enthroned in front of the TV, while she does the dishes and general cleaning.
Here is a plea to mothers of young children : Please teach him / her to pitch in where housework is concerned. One day your daughter / son-in-law will thank you. Plus your grown up child won't be surrounded by nagging....
Biggi.... unfortunately a part-time Nagger.
