How to cause your spouse extra stress when he is working an E.R. shift: 5 simple steps

1) Call him and tell him you are so desperate for some dessert, you are going to make a cake.

2) Call him prior to making that cake and tell him that you checked the cheap ass hand mixer you bought and that you think it is one of those Chinese brands that shocks everyone with their appliances.

3) Call him the minute before you make the cake and say “ok, I’m going to go electrocute myself now.”

4) Call him again right as you are going to start the mixer because he told you to. Stay on the phone while using the mixer because he told you to.

5) While mixing the batter, signal for your cat to cry in surprise as you scream and go suddenly silent, the mixer whirring absently in the distance.

Or like me today...

Call hubby at work and tell him all the electrical outlets are not working but the lightswitches are.

Forget to tell him you were using the blowdryer and clothesdryer at the same time. hehehe

Paintingchef, I should have said use at your own risk. Haha.

Traveller one, we did something similar, we had the oven, hot water boiler, and washing machine on at the same time. But our light switches didn't work either.

Vol Abroad, with one of our cats, if I am fixing food all I have to do is make eye contact and he'll start wailing. Easy.

Yes, Flubberwinkle, I am mean. Men are easy targets, though.
