Doghouse Stories....

March 13, 2011

In my previous post, I discussed the infamous DOGHOUSE.

If you didn't read it or if you need a quick can click here! (This post will make much more since if you have read the previous post!)  I had asked readers of my blog to send some stories about their significant others, and I would match some pictures (Hockey Wife style) to go with them.  I thought it would be fun to see some of the reasons for signing them up for the Doghouse Rewards Card!


Sarah from sent this gem!  

I had a very complicated hystorectomy. Two small children. Bozo decides to take a shower while they jump on me. thanks for the help.

Dear Bozo, 
Congratulations, you have been approved for your Doghouse Rewards Card...we have credited you with 200 reward points.  Next time, the only shower you should be thinking of is the showering of gifts for your lovely wife! 
I received this story, and I have to admit...this is an excellent example of not knowing when to just stop talking!!

I had fears that I had an enormously large husband has confirmed this is correct. 

Me: My head is ginormous. I don't know how my neck manages to support it.
Hubs: Yeah it is!
Me: What?? Really??
Hubs: Well, I have an actor head.
Me: WTF is an actor head?
Hubs: know they all have small bodies and kinda big heads...
Me: *Silence*
Hubs: To fill up the large screen?

Dear Hubs, 
Congratulations, you have been approved for the Doghouse Rewards Program.  You will receive your card in the next few days.  We have credited your account with 300 points.  We suggest you learn the following..."Baby, I think you are gorgeous!"  This is the ONLY acceptable response when your wife talks about her looks!  

Bernie from sent her husband to the doghouse because....

I have never had the best relationship with my husband's sister. This past fall we were getting married. His sister and her husband were up in the air about making the drive to our wedding.  Then she had the big brass balls to whine to my hubby-to-be that she didn't feel included. I saw red and I sent her an email suggesting we get together to hash things out. She sent me a note back, telling me how busy she was , but to send her my concerns and she would get back to me AFTER SHE PROCESSED MY EMAIL!  You have got to be friggin kidding me! So I did. I let her know everything I had been holding on to for the past few years. It was heartfelt and I got no reply.  For a week nothing.

Towards the end of the week we had to go to his sister's for his mom's birthday. The sister and I pretended everything was all nice. It went well until we were leaving. Suddenly, my husband-to-be says to his sister, "Are you done processing yet?" OMG! The look I gave him should have turned him into a pillar of salt. Are you kidding me?? Everything went so well and he had to stir it up?? I was so mortified I felt out the door and waited in the car until he was done. I was so angry. How could he be so stupid? I slept in our guest room that night and didn't talk to him for about three days.

Erin from Sometimes Blonde is engaged to a hockey player...he has already been sent to the penalty box doghouse!

This came from my reject fiance.

When getting all of our passport information to a team in Italy he called to ask how to spell my full name. It was his round-a-bout way of trying to remember what my middle name was. He wanted to take me across the world with him but didn't know that? Thanks.

Morela from myview-finder sent in quite a story...

A few years ago my husband calls me from work. He is supper excited and says, "Babe, I have a surprise for you! Your gonna love it!" I spent the whole day wondering what his surprise was. It's not like him to get me a surprise. He gets home that afternoon and runs inside the house, grabs my hand and drags me outside. "You ready?" he says and then points at his truck. "What?" I say. His response? "I put a new light kit on my truck! Do you like it?" Definitely a dog house moment!!!!

Cherie from lotsofjewels sent in this lovely story....

My husband and I were dating and my birthday came and went!  A  friend took me to a great concert!  Never heard from my husband (then boyfriend)until later  that night, he called because he could not get ahold of me.  He asked how my day was and what I was doing to which I replied, “Well, FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!! I went to a concert with Sue!”  Dead silence followed then he sheepishly said that he thought my birthday was May 23 NOT May 15th!  500 points for the missed birthday and a lifetime of points for not knowing my real birthdate!

I received a juicy story from Narragansett No. 7.  As I usually do when I read her posts, I laughed out loud!

So, the scandal part of my tale is that I was married once before. I married my college boyfriend and frankly, had a bad feeling throughout the whole engagement. I should have trusted my instincts. (I've written a bit about the whole ordeal at my blog.) weekend I left our house to go to upstate NY to ski with my girlfriends and left the (ex)hubs alone. I presumed he'd hang out with his buddies and do "man" stuff while I was away. Well, he did some man stuff alright. Some super-creepy man stuff.
Somewhere around a month after my ski trip, I came home from work to find him perusing his credit card statement. Seems that he couldn't figure out where in the hell that $150 charge came from. In fact, he was so confused (stupid) that he asked me to take a look. It took seconds for me to see it was a '900' number. I confirmed with a quick telephone call. So while I was away for the weekend, the creep had called a phone-sex line and wracked up a bill. Of course, he denied it to the end. Need I say that 'the end' of the relationship quickly followed? Ick.
Weeks after we separated, he went to Vegas for a bachelor's party and came back with a Bud Girl. Way to go, fella.

Thanks for playing!

hahahaha... love reading these types of stories. There are a lot of "doghouse" men out there :) I suppose it's just the male brain in some cases ;)

kelli @ Narragansett No. 7 said...

Genious...I love that you came up with this idea!

Blonde_Morgan said...

Oh these are way too good. Men, bless 'em. At some point its is inevitable for the main squeeze to head off to the doghouse for putting his foot in his mouth. Soo glad you did this post, the morning is just that much funnier. Have a fantastic Sunday!

TexaGermaNadian said...

Hahaha, these are all hilarious! You got such a great response from everyone. Do I smell at least a monthly feature. I thought of one now after reading these. It isn't sooo bad, but I think it will still count. So if you have another one, count me in! Hope you are having a great Sunday!

Bernie said...

It is nice to read the other stories. Granted each of them were dumb, but in so many clever ways. I loved this post. To the other gals, I can feel your pain.

Chrissyzang said...

Love this post! Had to laugh dearly! Thanks for sharing!!!

Rachel Parker said...

Hahahahaha, you have me laughing so hard at this post, because no matter how silly the stories are they definitely have a hint of truth in them that I've (or a friend has) experienced!

As I was reading, my jaw kept dropping lower and lower. My posture progressively crumpled. And then I read Narrashghsantestt (can't spell) #7's. I need a shower.

KT @ KT's Refinishing School said...

Those are so funny! I hope people submit more of them because they had me rolling on the floor and thinking that some of the silly things J does aren't so bad :)

We had our own moment this weekend when he forgot my cell number even though I remembered his--I guess technology has rendered some of that knowledge useless but still!
