    Anyone Else's Wife Get Nervous When She Doesn't Hear Anything?

    So, I was cleaning out the garage and found 2 buckets of lead I'd forgotten about (COWW and SOWW ). I fired up the stove and started melting it up with some other lead for 50/50. An hour or so latter SWMBO comes out.

    "What are you doing"?
    "Do you always have to follow me around and check up"
    "Yes, remember when you got stuck on the roof between the chimney and lightning rod and I had to get the truck and some rope"?
    "Well....."
    "Remember when I came home and you were making blackpowder on the stove"?
    "So, everyone does that"
    "How about when you were under the house and your flashlight died and you got stuck trying to get out"
    "Darn batteries were defective.."
    "How about when you stuck 10lbs of Tannerite under the stump out back"?
    "You got a point? That would have worked and I was going to shoot from inside so no-one would have seen me!"
    "Remember me coming to the Emergency Room from work to get you"
    "Alright, alright""
    "Oh...how about when you took the motorcycle out for a ride and the rear wheel fell off"
    "Ok, Alright.."
    "And that website you went on and I found you in the garage with some cannon fuse, gunpowder...."
    "that would have worked"
    "You know that bright idea you had with one of your scuba tanks and some hose..."
    you can stop now....

    No. Mine gets nervous when she hears me scream in pain. Happened 3 times now. Cracked a rib, broke my R elbow, tore my L meniscus.

    Yeah, that's pretty normal.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.

    Mine gets scared when she hears me say "owe crap" or "ut owe" that normal means I have cause several hundred or thousands of dollars of damage to my self or the house.

    When I move from Florida to Virginia I fell off the back of the moving truck shattered my left wrist in about a gazillion places . Good thing my son was there he got her and said I got to take dad to the emergency room I think he hurt his wrist her answer was to take him to the walk-in clinic because it’s cheaper . Then I took the rag off my left wrist and showed her that my hand was pointing in the opposite direction she just shook her head and went back to packing . I guess she’s used to me by now .

    Depending on how you look at it I have a detached garage/workshop. Every once and a while she will send out a grandkid, or come out herself to make sure I'm still breathing. I have been lucky and the worst OOps was a run in with a jointer with no guard that took the tips off the 3 smaller fingers on my right hand 2 bled Thu the shop towel and black tape first aid.

    Mine is really good- has to ask, when I am bleeding- "and what did we learn from this experience?"
    Last time was "You can either go to the doctor tomorrow, or we can check you into the hospital and they won't let you out 'til you are better." She's an RN, and was spot-on with the pneumonia, both lungs. But she is a hell of a hunting partner and doesn't mind helping field dress.

    I am more lost without mine than with her. I dread the day she would no longer check on me. 26 years, and she still isn't sick of me.

    I probably wouldn't even be here if my wife didn't check up on me! Good thing she knows about direct pressure.

    Mine will come out, take a look, and say "its time to up your life insurance AGAIN". Then go hide in the house.

    Wife pretty much leaves me alone, unless there is serious bleeding. Sinus infections she will send me to see Dr. Tammy in a hurry.
    She is a retired nurse so not much excites her.

    After 44 years LOML trusts me to deal with bleeding because she has seen me do it so many times. Major stuff she and I communicate about pretty well.

    When I'm quiet, (which isn't very often), no, she doesn't get nervous. When neither of us know where my Siberian Husky is or what he's up to, we both get as nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof!!!

    As of yesterday, she has been with me for slightly over half my life. She calls me dumb butt almost daily and has learned to keep a safe distance away from me when I’m “working” on something.
    Wait a minute- she’s gone this morning and my closest neighbors are in Cabo and I’ve got a BIG jug of Tannerite- what could go wrong?????
