husband in every respect. I'm pretty good looking, if you can judge by the glances I get from women, I help with the

So I have one habit that is probably a little annoying. I lose my keys sometimes. And my
wallet. I can't help it, I am just not very careful about remembering where I put them. In a way, I think it's sort of
endearing. But my wife doesn't think so. Whenever I ask her where they are, she gets irritated and tells me to find my
own darn keys. It's not like I ask her to help me very often - only when I'm late for work in the mornings, or when we
are going out. I would think she would just help me find them. But she says I don't even try to keep track of them, and
that I always wait until the last minute to check if I have them. Maybe that's right, but wouldn't you think she would
just do this one thing, since I'm such a good husband?
