I too have a husband that asks the most stupid questions.
Great example peeling potatoes this morning and the H asked what are you doing my love?.
And i said i`m cutting my hair as i can`t go to the hairdressers .
He promptly said well i won`t ask again then and walked off to which i burst out laughing and said promises promises.

I usually say, "Standing on my head whistling Rule Britannia." He's never impressed.

It's not just men. My daughter will ask 'What are you doing?' if I'm making a sandwich, hoping I'll offer to make her one.

They can learn sometimes if the response is firm enough. OH only said once that he had done my ironing for me! He wore clean office shirts 6 days a week, three children all still wearing school uniform and after school clothes.
