Packing - Locking Horns

Packing the suitcases and all the other 101 sundry items in the car is like trying to fit a quart into a pint pot. Mr P always insists on doing it his way. I watch as he tries to ram yet another square and oblong rigid shaped object into an oval-ish shape car boot. Of course, it won't fit. Not a hope in hell. NO, he doesn't want my help because it is NOT going to fit. Any fool can see it ain't going to fit. Not a hope in Hell. He rants on and on ... Note to self: Write a poem about male pride.

After thirty minutes I mutter a sarcastic comment under my breath: why are men SO bloody stubborn? and he stomps off. Good.

I unpack the boot, repackage the contents of some rigid boxes into smaller bags and reorganise the previously full and, it won't all fit in... using half the space. Maybe this is what is meant by thinking outside the box?

I tried not to wear a smug expression when he came to investigate.

Never underestimate male pride. Sometimes stubborn pride allows us to do the unthinkably amazing. It only fails us about 75% of the time. Is that enough to get us to rethink our strategies? Yeah, it probably should be! Lol, what of it? goes back to trying to dry out crawlspace with a box fan

Get one of those snail looking dryer fans. Small ones aren't very expensive, and they do a hell of a job! And for REALLY damp spots, dump kitty litter on it first, let that soak up, then scoop it out and hit it with the fan.
