Works for Me Wednesday

This is my first time participating in Works for Me Wednesday. And since this is a funny blog, I'm gonna keep my advice on the lighter side. After all, I can't have word getting out that I'm making this blog too serious.
So I'm gonna share what works when you are living with your single brother. First, you must teach your brother how to boil things. This shouldn't seem so hard, but if you read this post you will see that teaching this skill is an absolute necessity. Second, you must remind said brother that there are other shows that are "preacher friendly" other than Sponge Bob Square Pants. (Full House has been a good diversion for us.) And thirdly, and this is most important, you must teach said brother to take the garbage out on Tuesday night (if you figure out how to accomplish this one, get back to me.) So far living with my brother has been great. Unfortunately, he's gonna leave for college before I get him fully trained. Too bad for his fiance, she probably would have really appreciated the help since they're getting married December of 2007!
To find out more serious things that work hop over to Shannon's!

You're too funny! Alas, unfortunately I had no brother to have to teach all this normal everyday stuff to!

Susan said...

I totally understand about the brother thing!

Too funny! I had my youngest brother live with me once for several months. I never did get him trained. :) Now he has a wife to work on that! :)

Thanks for your comment on my WFMW creating blogging categories post.

And, it's never too late to create categories. You don't have to do the Tags at the end of each post. Once you create the categories and republish your entire blog, Blogger will sort most of it out for you. Give it a try! :)

Place on the door he uses most frequently a LARGE neon post-it note with "TAKE OUT TRASH" written really big and bold. Do this each time he has to take the trash out.

It MIGHT work!

haha, what a cute tip! Welcome to WFMW! =)

Now that's some great advice. I'm with Gibee. Sign might work; so might just placing the garbage in front of said door so that he has to grab it to get by. I think I would start praying about it now. It might just take some Godly intervention to teach him.
