So my DH is going to Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan for 2 weeks in a few days... After much whining and not so subtle hints, I finally helped him this weekend. I had to: Get him a new suitcase Sort his clothes, buy some new items to fill in the gaps (I made sure, everything is interchangeable, lol....so he will match) Purchase gifts for him to take Get him an international calling card Help him pack (ie did 90% of it) Get a car service set up for airport transportation (and he is miffed I am not taking him) I had already helped with the plane tix, reservations, travel visas, etc weeks ago. What did he do? Got some snacks and gum for the plane ride ush: . I love him, but how can he be so helpless! He is vice president of operations for his company for pete's sake! When I went abroad last year, he certainly didn't do any of that for me, nor would I, obviously, want/expect him too. Any other hapless husbands out there?
