My Husband Has Smelly Socks

January 1st, 2001

“My husband insists on leaving his putrid and rank smelling jogging shoes under my side of the bed. I move them, only to wake in the middle of the night from the smell, as I discover they’re back under my nose.

I have asked him to not do it again, but he seems to be unable to change his habit.

What can I do to convince him never to do this again?”

Jo’s Advice

Well, if it were me, I’d leave him. His complete lack of consideration is indicative of what a selfish man you married. Next you’re going to tell me he never hangs his bath towel, won’t change a nappy and always eats the last piece of chocolate.

I don’t know how you tolerate such a self-absorbed mongrel. However, I do understand that frequently divorce is more expensive than marriage, so you’re looking for a way of changing his behaviour. Simple.

When you are woken in the middle of the night by the disgusting locker room odour, sneak out of bed without waking him, take the runners into the kitchen, fill them with cornflakes and milk and put them in the freezer.

Return to bed and sleep blissfully, dreaming of the morning and your dear husband’s reaction when he discovers your revenge.

He may not learn to keep his runners from your side of the bed, but it will feel bloody good doing it.
