Have to vent! May be a crime scene here...

Y'all! I have to vent! My h not calling him d right now tries to "mop" by leaving a half inch of water all over the tile.

He does not seem to understand either a) how to wring out the string mop or
b) how to use the swifer wet jet that I aways use which does NOT leave water all over the tile.

We have had this discussion AT LEAST 4 times of how leaving water all over the floor is not good.

So, he's "mopping" this afternoon. I am home early because my dd14 had to be picked up from school and taken to the doctor with and diagnosed with strep today. My h not d has been home for 3 days with the flu but is apparently so well he needs to mop.

I go take a shower and come down the stairs in a towel to get my pj pants out of the dryer.

Unbeknownst to me he has been "mopping". I step off the bottom step onto a soaked tile landing and fly and bust my ass, hitting my elbow really bad and my back. My sleeping and sick dd 14 hears it all the way from upstairs and comes running down.
I now have a huge bruised knot on my elbow and bruise all the way across my back.

I wanted to strangle him with my bare hands. WWYD PT friends?

I hope you are icing your wounds. You poor thing! I hope all three of you are better soon.

I would ask husband to stick to sweeping and vacuuming from now on. And once you are well you are the official mopper.

I am so sorry that happened to you.Ouch!

Oh I did cry. Because it hurt and I was so pissed. Uggggg my elbow is still throbbing and I've been icing it.

My dd was ready to throw down but I told her I had it. We can be a feisty pair.

I'm so sorry. That stinks. Is he being apologetic at least? I hope so. I also hope this lesson is learned. Take care of yourself and let him spoil you for the rest of the day.

Ooww! I hope your h waits on you all night and tomorrow. He should tend to your every need until all bruises are healed.
Now, unfortunately for you, he understands why water should not be left on the floor after mopping.

I am with Linda. If I found my dh mopping, I would probably have a mini heart attack. I would have to wonder what he killed in the house that made a mess big enough that he realized it would have to be mopped.

SOrry you fell. That didn't sound fun at all!

I would also be shocked to find a cleaning tool in DH's hands. Hopefully he's taking good care of you- I'm so sorry you are in pain.

Oh my goodness, that sounds so painful! I hope you are feeling better quickly! I agree with the PP who said to throw the mop away. If he really wants to mop, how about getting him a Swiffer with the wet pads that you attach to it? That way, no water puddles.

mopping

Ouch! I hope you are OK.

It's interesting that your H does not (want to) understand how to mop. I hope he has learned from this incident. Sometimes husbands are thickheaded and don't want to hear how to do something (because they know it all) until it hits them in the face. Lucky for him you didn't get worse injuries.
If it were me, I'd have him mop the doghouse, since he'd be living in it for a while.

Oh, that was quite a fall made worse by the circumstances. I also suggest that you hide that mop and demand a contrite DH. Is he mopping with little regard to "best practices" in hopes of being reassigned to easier duties? Perhaps a stretch in toilet cleaning will help him see the need to refine his mopping skills.

Sorry that you're in such pain. I hope you recover quickly.
