Right, I think that's part of it.

I'm sure some boyfriends would have had the dishwasher and washing machine fixed in a few days, they would have loved working on it. Bob loves taking them apart - and then they sit in pieces for a year smile So even though on Bob knows I really want these things fixed, he just never does it.

So at least Dan does it, with complaints smile Bob never gets to the doing it stage on a category of tasks.

I think the lesson is that for certain categories of tasks we have to find other people who are happy to do them. It just doesn't work to drive a person to do something they're against doing. Just like we probably resist when they ask us to do things we're against doing. Like Bob wants to move to Arizona smile And I refuse.
