This conversation actually just happened

Me: Why don't you ever empty the Diaper Genie?
DH: Because you told me I would never have to.
Me: (!)....Really?
DH: Yeah.
Me: I actually said that?
DH: Yeah. You told me when you went and bought that fancy new diaper pail that I would never have to empty it.
Me: Me? I actually said that?
DH: Yeah.
Me: Really? I really said that?
DH: Yeah. I'm not trying not to pull my weight. You said I'd never have to empty it. You don't remember that?
Me: I have no recollection of that conversation at all.
DH: Well, you said that.
Me: Okay.

I still have no recollection of telling my DH that he would never have to empty the diaper pail, though it sounds like something I would say since he wasn't in favor of getting the Diaper genie since we had a pail already. Never mind that it smelled awful and there was better diaper disposal technology available to us. He would only have been completely Ok with the new pail if it were made by Apple. I used a similar tactic when we got our cat, Misty. I told him he'd never have to scoop the litter box. I proceeded to become pregnant almost immediately and he scooped the p**p for the next year and a half (because if a woman shouldn't handle the cat box while pregnant, she probably still shouldn't while nursing, right?).

You know it's dangerous to promise someone that they will never have to do a chore...
