Do you have a wife

Do you have a wife that after you have planed for three months and she kows the date and time; you are planning to leave; (she always says she wants to go along and see the sights); shes never ready, you wait and wait and wait; oH yes when were traveling, she sleeps.
When you get to your diustination she sits in the motorhome and watches TV or reads her old letters.

Any one married to someone like that?

I tried going by myself but she had a fit about staying home by herself.

Come guys give me some ideas'
Anyone out there no a widow that likes to travel? I'd be happy to trade
mine in; shes 75 so I'm not looking for a young filly. this is nothing new, shes been doing this fof 20 years I keep hoping she will change but nothing changes.

In my younger days I had a wife that didn't want to ride on my Harley so one day I just never came back. I think that was wife #2. #5 loves to go in the new RV.

DW is always ready to go on a trip. If I say, we'll leave at 7:00 AM or whatever, she is ready about 10 - 15 Minutes later. After 48 years she knows I would not leave without my FA. We'll have a complete crew on board.

If she's been doing this for 20 years I don't think anythings going to change now. You might try Dr.Phil

Are you really asking the rest of us guys how a woman thinks - I've been married 39 years and I have no idea. My wife is a lot like yours - sleeps in real late, knits and reads magazines (vs. reading letters and TV). It is a wonder the human race isn't extinct:>) I think I’ll keep her around – I’m sure my male behavior bugs her just as well.

I'm not married but we have been together for a long time. I'm usually ready to go long before she is. I've learned to let her know when we are planning on leaving and that is always 30 min before I want to leave. We each have our responsibilities for each trip and we always double check with the other to ensure we are ready. My first wife was terrible on time and wanting to do things.

Also our trips are to relax and we aren't stressed if we are running a little late.

Just works for me and I also know I drive Dee nuts. What makes it work is she puts up with me. That great

I counsel the OP to get rid of his current unsatisfactory wife , and go looking for some pretty little thing that has the hots for his saggy, crabby old body and who will always be ready on time.

That should take care of his complaints nicely.
