OPP Helpful Husband
Yi guys!

My husband likes helping around the house and I really appreciate the help, but he can be a lot to deal with. Whenever he cleans, he piles my things up and leaves them waiting for me to put away as soon as I walk in the door. Then he scolds me for being so messy--which I’m not. Last weekend, we went grocery shopping and before I could put anything in the cart, he had to double check the prices of every competing brand. Like I said, it’s really nice that he helps out and tries to save money, but he treats me like a child that didn’t put their toys away or doesn’t understand the concept of money. I’ve tried talking to him about it and he said I was overreacting and most women would kill to have a husband that helps as much as he does. I don’t know what to do. How do I get him to stop trying to be my parent all the time?
Kim

Slacker says that most women have a problem with their husband. He thinks she is crazy. It is bad that he is bossy, but it’s a not that bad. It’s all in how a person perceives it. “If someone were to come to my house and clean up and put my things in a corner because they don’t know where they go, then sue me.” It is a partnership. So what, someone competitively shops.

Steve agrees with Slacker and thinks that it is not okay that the gender roles are flipped. Women do this to men all the time. And right when the men tell the women to pick up their things, it becomes an ordeal.

What advice would you give Kim?

I have a man that is like this but he doesn’t scold me. That’s where Kim is right. You don’t have to treat her like a child. My boyfriend cleans up after me all the time and quite frankly is more domesticated than I, but he is nice about it. He neatly places my things for me to put away, and when I see them folded, I’ll put them away. He doesn’t nag me like a child. There’s a difference.I would tell her to just voice how she feels and just say, "Hey, you don't have to be su rude about it." There's moting scarier than an upset wife!

GMD:Fire the Babysitter
Yi!

She is responsible, fun, and the kids love her. She is your babysitter of 4 years and is turning into a beautiful young woman. The problem is that Mom wants to fire her, and Dad wants to keep her because the children would be upset. It is the Great Mate Debate.

Slacker said it’s weird because of the “cradle rocking” factor. We don’t know if Amber is one of those girls that want to ruin a relationship.  Slacker questioned about the kids and if it would be worth it to cuts those ties and introduce someone new to the kids, and the Mom replied, “Absolutely, it’s worth it to me.” Slacker thinks it’s very hard to find a great baby-sitter. And if the kids are comfortable then keep her!

Steve thought it was a “slam dunk” on his side, until he heard Mom’s side saying, “Amber is like a juicy steak sitting on front of you, when you’re really hungry.” The temptation would be so hard to resist. Steve thinks Dad makes a good point that even if he fired the babysitter it would be a 6-block walk to her house if he wanted to cheat on his wife. It would be awkward if they fired her because then the neighbors would think something already happened.

Whose side are you on?

I am on the dad’s side. Despite their past they need to resolve their differences. A good, reliable babysitter is hard to find. Mom had a great reason to be a little insecure about the babysitter, but not to the point of firing her when she has grown with the family and been reliable for them. I think it would crush the babysitter to know that the mom is being like this especially when I can bet that she isn’t even into the dad!

Saw in the Window
Yi!

A recent post on reddit asked, "what is the weirdest thing you've ever seen someone doing through their window?" Among the responses:
 
- A woman weighing her boobs on some scales. I have no idea if this is a normal thing women do.
- My neighbor licking her cats. She has like 5 cats and they are mostly outside wandering around. One day She just licked the cat for like 10 minutes...I couldn't look away.
- One Christmas when I was like, 8 or 9 my dad and I were walking around looking at Christmas lights in the neighborhood with our next door neighbor. After a while I got tired so my dad put me up on his shoulders. As we're walking along I have a pretty good vantage into this one house where the owners are having a Christmas party. They had all gone outside but they left the candelabra burning in the dining room, and it had burned down far enough to catch some surrounding flowers or something on fire. The entire table had caught aflame, which I saw from my vantage point on my dad's shoulders. I was like "Their table is on fire" so our neighbor went up and looked into the window, is like "holy s***" and runs around to the house's backyard to tell the owners their house was on fire.
- Last winter At around 2am I was coming home from a friends and I turned around in the driveway of a house two doors down so I could park on the limited street space infront of my house a bit better. As my head lights swept the house I saw the silouette of someone staring at me out of the little frosted window at the top of the front door. A very tall person by the height of the window. Got major creepy vibes and noped out of the driveway as fast as I could and ran into my house.
The next morning I went out to my car for work and half the block was covered in ambulances and police cars. It turns out that the neighbor's husband was cheating on her, and was likely going to bring his girlfriend home that night because she was supposed to be visiting her sister. Instead she hung herself infront of the front door so they would walk in and see her body.
The person staring at me was a dead woman. hanging, waiting for her unfaithful husband.

Open Line Confessional
Yi!

Demi Lovato recently admitted she would “smuggle” drugs onto airplanes because she could only go so long without a fix. “With my drug use … I couldn’t go 30 minutes to an hour without cocaine, and I would bring it on airplanes,” she told Access Hollywood. She also admitted, “I was going to the airport and I had a Sprite bottle just filled with vodka, and it was just nine in the morning and I was throwing up in the car. … When I hit that moment I was like, it’s no longer fun when you’re doing it alone,” she added. “I think at 19 years old, I had a moment where I was like, ‘Oh my God … that is alcoholic behavior … I gotta get my s*** together.’”
 
We're going into the holidays and we want your mind to be free of burden. What is the biggest secret you need to confess to?

OPP: Stay for the Gift
Yi!

Stephanie joined us on the air today to tell us her OPP. She has been with her boyfriend for a little over 2 years and she doesn't love him anymore. She was planning on breaking up with him, but then her dad let it slip that he knew her boyfriend had a big gift planned for Stephanie for Christmas. Now, she really wants the gift and is trying to decide if she should stay with him until after the holidays. She said that she knows what the gift is and it is something that he put a lot of money and effort into...but she wouldn't tell us what it is!
 
Both Slacker and Steve say that they have to know what the gift is in order to make their decision on this. Slacker thinks she sounds very shallow without telling us what the gift is. He also said that she should have broken it off before Thanksgiving, and because she didn't, she is now stuck with him until after Christmas. Steve says that for appearances sake, if she stays for the gift, she has to stay with him until January at the very minimum.
 
Eventually, Stephanie told us that she found out that her boyfriend is restoring her grandmother's china cabinet for her. She was very close with her grandma and she has loved the cabinet since she was a child.
 
Should she stick around for the gift or leave him anyway?

Swallowed
Yi!

Mark Watts was recently arrested for stealing and swallowing $59,000 worth of diamond rings. He posed as a construction worker before examining the rings at a Brisbane, Australia jewelry store. When the clerk turned her back, Watts bolted. Employees chased him into a pharmacy and cornered him before he swallowed the one-carat diamond solitaire ring and 1.53-carat yellow diamond ring. A judge has refused to grant bail until Watts passes the rings.
 
Whether it was on purpose or by accident, what is the craziest thing you swallowed? Keep it clean!

Boomerang Buys
Yi!

Boomerang buys are consumers who go and buy something and use/ wear it once and return it. We are not talking about returning something because it work or fit right, but these people literally have the intention of using it once and returning it. There is even talk of Victoria’s Secret shredding items when returned, things like underwear. This is called “wardrobing.”

Slacker personally knows person who bought the gum to remove the tags off of clothing and put them back on. Slacker has done it before. “We were in band and we couldn’t rent a lighting rig to play the event and we didn’t have the money to buy it, so we screwed a completely innocent store over. We bought the lights and then drove the next town returned it.”

Steve says women are notorious for doing this. It is crazy. Can you do that with cars? Jets? RV’s? Hmm.
Have you ever bought something with the full intention of using it once and returning it?

I have never done this before. When I buy something I want it forever. I am not gonna buy something to wear it once. Especially with going through all the hassle to get the tag back on or look like a fool to leaving the tag on and someone points it out. I’ll pass.

Sneezed
Yi!

A sneeze, a very relieving occurrence can feel so satisfying, but can be very dangerous. A man crashed his 18-wheeler when he sneezed and ran his truck off the road, spilling his shipment of corn syrup. Cleaning crews dropped chemicals to prevent cars from slipping. The driver was not injured but we still don’t know the severity of the damage. This all happened because of a sneeze.

Slacker thinks that people who have sneeze accidents is so insane because he has never confused the gas and the break. He hit his head on stuff. But never blacked out.

Steve has never blacked out from a sneeze, but he saw the little black dots afterwards. He thinks if you have to sneeze then to just let it out. Do not hold it in. You’re head will explode.

Has something completely outrageous happened to you because you sneezed?

I love sneezing. It is like scratching an itch that you just need to get and having that satisfaction afterwards is pure bliss. Okay that’s a little much. But I have never caused damage because of a sneeze. I do agree that sneezing while driving is quite scary.

O.P.P Collagen for Christmas
Yi!

Today’s OPP was confused when she received her 18-year-old daughter’s Christmas list this year. She wants collagen lip injections because she in self-conscious about how small they are. Mom and Dad are contemplating between yes and no because it’s not breast implants or other plastic surgery. She is going to be a legal adult in a week, but they are wondering if 18 is too young for surgery.

Slacker says it is not surgery. Parents should help improve her self esteem because that’s their job, to tell her she is pretty the way she is. Slacker’s wife was told by her mother that she needed Botox in between her eyes, so she got it. And she is gorgeous. But he thinks it makes the girl look more sexual and when she turns 18 and can pay for it herself, then by all means go get the collagen.

Steve thinks that 18 is not too young to improve one’s self conscious. He thought they’d start getting it done at 13. He would let his daughter if he had one, because she is 18 and it would improve her self esteem. 

What should the parents do? Is 18 too young for surgery?

I am a bit torn between yes and no because if she wants lip injections, get a job and go pay for it by yourself. But also, this society is telling her she needs to have bigger lips to be beautiful which I think is stupid. I mean, being an 18 year old in this society is hard because there’s a standard woman have to live up to. And sometimes that standard is unrealistic.

Asleep
Yi!

Tom Wagoner fell asleep aboard a United Airlines airplane and he awoke to a dark plane. He was confused as to what was going on because there was no one on the plane. Tom even missed his connecting flight because he was fast asleep. He ended up calling his girlfriend and she didn’t believe he was trapped. Low and behold he was telling the truth and the matter is now being investigated.

Slacker hates the whole process of traveling. He is baffled the man wasn't woken up by the cleaning crew or the flight attendants. He has worked for the airlines before and he has never been on an airplane by himself. "I can't get my brain around this. He was totally drunk.” Slacker falls asleep in Vegas all the time.

Steve agrees and hates the process and can't imagine what this guy was thinking. Steve wonders why the guy didn’t open the door on the plane and have the parachute slide pop out, but if the plane is off and everything shut down, does that still work? He fell asleep during a show like Cirque Du Soleil and the whole thing was loud and Steve was unconscious asleep.
 
I love to sleep. I fall asleep in cars, trains, buses, planes, pretty much any moving object. The weirdest place I ever fell asleep was on the Ferris wheel at an amusement park. Talk about a weird awakening. How did I even fall asleep? I don’t know. I was a kid. And I love my sleep.

Weird Way Ya Met
Yi!
 
A man and woman were hunting in Lafayette, Georgia. The man decided to go after a deer and left his friend behind. He heard a rustling in the woods as he fired a shot, accidentally shooting the woman in the leg. She was rushed to the hospital, but the man waited for her to wake up to read her a letter.  In it contained how sorry he was and how much he cared for her. Despite losing her leg and him getting arrested, they are now officially a couple.

Slacker met his wife at a strip club. She was not a stripper. They were both attending an event and their eyes met, and it was history from there.

Steve says a lot of people meet on the internet nowadays. If people met on the internet ten years ago they would be ashamed. But it is acceptable now.  

What was the weird way you met your significant other?

I met my current boyfriend in high school and he never knew I had the biggest crush on him. We went our separate ways in life and met again at an event and it was there I knew he was the one for me. Little did I know that he also had a crush on me too back in high school! It was fate. And history ever since.

Me (Nikki)

Straw that Broke your Relationship's Back
Yi!

Sometimes you have to put up with stuff in a relationship and it really bugs you. It bugs you so much that you snap and end it. No ifs, ands, or buts, you’re done! A new survey came out that women cheated on their husbands because they wore socks during relations. The same survey revealed that women cheated because they didn’t like the dirty talk, or were too “ungentlemanly,” meaning they stole the covers at night or only pleasured themselves and not their wife.
 
Slacker thinks that wearing socks mean that men care more about their comfort than relations instead of just taking them off. He said, “I don’t wear socks to bed just in case.” The straw that broke Slacker’s first marriage’s back was volleyball. His wife wanted to sign up for volleyball and that was the straw. She was looking for ways to avoid him. “I will wear that insecurity like a badge.”

Steve likes to wear his socks and eat his garlic butter. Yes, Steve loves the garlic butter that comes with pizza that is delivered. He just laughs at the matter and salutes ending the relationships.

What was the straw that broke your relationship’s back?

The straw that broke my relationships back was the guy’s lack of cleanliness. I was like his
mother. I did his laundry, made our bed, cleaned his hair from around the sink, and washed the dishes. He never helped me, not once, nor did he offer.  Finally one day, I threw the scrubbing brush into the sink and my hands up in the air and said, “DONE!” And that was that. We haven’t talked since.

OPP: Boyfriend Doesn't Want My Selfies
Yi!
Candy has been trying to spice up her relationship with her boyfriend of a year and a half. She started sending him naked pics, but he asked her stop because he doesn’t want a girlfriend that does that kind of thing.

Slacker thinks Steve is over thinking it. Just because he doesn’t want pictures doesn’t mean he is cheating. He doesn’t get the picture thing; he likes women right in front of him. He thinks of himself as “warped, ” because pictures don’t do anything for him. He would rather get a text saying what terrible things you’re going to do. There’s no mystery. Slacker thinks that the boyfriend is just a classy guy that is telling his girl to stop sending. It is not unrealistic for a guy to think this.

Steve thinks he is cheating. What guy wouldn’t want pictures of his girlfriend?! The fact that there’s no mystery is the point of the picture.  The boyfriend is done with her. It is over. But there’s something to him vocalizing how he feels.

What should Candy do?

I think that Candy just needs to ask him why he doesn’t want the pics.  If he is a real man then he would not get tired of the pictures… I think there is something else going on here. He is getting other pictures from someone else or he’s gay. She either needs to dig deep and do some investigating or leave. If he doesn’t want to spice it up with her…on to the next one!

Hurt Decorating for the Holidays
Yi!

Christmas lights, candy canes, and ornaments all have one thing in common. Yes, holiday decor, but also a high cause of injury during the holidays. About 15,000 injuries are reported due to putting up holiday decorations and the stats are rising!

Slacker is not decorating this year and usually gets hurt doing one thing or another, especially after seeing an ordeal unfold in his own neighborhood.  He doesn’t even want to try and attempt to put up lights on his house because it is very high and a dangerous task to complete. His theory is that this man fell and was hanging by his gutter. A piece of the gutter impaled the man. There was talk for flight for life!

Steve hates those nosey people that try and see what the situation is during an emergency. He hates the inflatable decorations in front of the house, but if the man would have landed on the inflatable decorations, he could’ve been saved.

Have you ever been hurt for the holidays?

I absolutely love decorating for the holidays but you would never catch me on my roof putting up lights. I am not going to be the one getting hurt for the pretty lights to be admired. But I will for sure do the Christmas tree by myself. The only time I was ever hurt by decorations is when a sliver of a candy cane splintered my finger. But that’s about it.

OPP: Elf on the Shelf
Yi! Today's OPP is from Katie:
 
Yi! My son has an elf on the shelf watching him before Christmas. He's had some serious issues with lying and throwing tantrums and I thought the elf would help, but it hasn't. I keep telling my son that his elf is going to report back to Santa and tell him how bad he's being and that Santa won't bring him any presents if he keeps acting the way he is. It doesn't faze him and he tells me he doesn't care. I'm at a loss. Has anyone ever had Santa not deliver presents to their kids? How did the kids react? Thanks for your help.

I Got Scrooged
Yi!

In England, a company director showed up for work in a brand-new $290,000 Ferrari – and spent the day firing 45 employees … Just in time for Christmas. A spokesman for the worker’s union at the company showed some restraint, calling the behavior, “insensitive at best.”
 
Has anyone ever done something horrible to you before the holidays?

Hot Doctors
YI!

Ladies, meet Dr. Manuel Rico. He's a gorgeous guy from Spain, also known as The Hottest Gynecologist EVER. Yup ... this ridiculously good-looking male, who was crowned the Spanish Beauty King back in 2010, is also an OB/GYN!  Can you imagine having HIM examine you down there?!

Slacker said he would think it was weird if he was coughing while his hot chick doctor was checking his prostate. Your body is a dirty germy place. He doesn’t want good looking people even working on his car. People that are good looking and are for example, an I.T. person, they are “not as devoted at their craft as the others.”

Steve said he would not mind a hot chick being his doctor in some situations. He thinks that women would want a female GYNO that is an older man or a woman. If Steve is getting a prostate checked it has to be an old battle ax of a guy.

How about you ladies? Would you like for your “lady” doctor to not only be a guy but a hot guy?

I would not care too much. Male or female doesn’t matter to me the quality and expertise is what I care about. Although I did have a hot guy give me x-rays the other day and I was feeling a bit uncomfortable since I was not looking my best you know hospital gown my legs weren’t shaved etc. So maybe I would not like it unless… ok I would still like it.
