Not a gender role thing

I know this episode is ancient, but I just wanted to say thank you!

I'm a 29 year old guy who has been suffering all the stress and fury you ladies were describing when my attempts at making my fiancee "read my mind" just weren't working. I've tried the "hey, I think she should have cleaned X already, so I'm not going to do it, I'm just going to wait for her to do it." to the expected conclusion of me getting really furious when I eventually cave and clean X.

This episode has made me rethink how I approach the division of labor, and forced me to come up with a more rational, less stressful way to get what needs to be done done.
