One for you guys:
Let's say you have a wife who stays at home and takes care of your two young and very energetic sons. Let's say that same wife took the project to paint your house. This means: 2 bedrooms, 1 master bedroom, 1 loft, 2 bathrooms, 1 dining room, 1 family room, 1 kitchen, 1 laundry room and 1 den. Did you get all that? OK good. (no it is not a castle just a regular home) Also let's say she even painted in nice colors and she even asked your input before buying the pain to let you participate in the decision process since it is also YOUR home. Let's say that same wife painted the whole house all by herself without your help, while taking care of the kids; that means feeding them, laundry, homework, sports activities, referee 143 fights per day, playdates, ect.
OK now the free advice: When she is done with the last room, in this case a bathroom, this is NOT the thing to say when you come home: "Looks like you missed a spot right there BEHIND the toilet near the floor." I guarantee she will not be happy if you say that. (The chance of you getting lucky that day are pretty close to ZERO also.) If you care that much about the spot behind the toilet close to the floor where nobody ever look wait for her to be out of the house and fix it yourself. Say something like this instead: "thank you". Magical words.
