RE: the upper decker, why not make it fun by eating a bunch of black jellybeans first; this would add visual appeal (specifically, a sinister green) to the olfactory pleasure you'll be creating.

Or you can just put in a lot of red dye in the tank so that when she flushes there might be a skipped heartbeat or two. Don't do that if she's pregnant, though, that would be inhumane.

One I can add is the turn off the heat or the AC when you and the kids leave the house. Saves money too.

Some of these are easily defeated.

Separate bathrooms.

Cancelling cable: She turned it back on in her name, got the most expensive plan, and made me pay for it through family court.
Land line phone: same deal.

I stopped doing housecleaning and she just hired a maid service, and, once again, stuck me with the bill through family court.
Ditto for mowing the lawn. She hired a fancy landscaper and family court thought that was "reasonable" (their word).

Meanwhile, she did her best to drive me out:
1) Nonstop criticising/demanding/belittling/mocking
2) Turning up the heat to inferno and the AC to refridgerate
3) Eating all my food
4) Making the house a pigsty in between maid visits

I would call and cancel it every month, and remove equipment. some bathrooms electrical sockets are "'daisy chained" to another room. "test" it and she can't blow dry her hair in the bathroom. to nut jobs that is a "big deal"

Once a utility is her name, you can't cancel it.

If you sabotage the electrical system in your home, she will call for repairs and guess who will be stuck with the bill?

There is always a reason why you can't.

Following the philosophy of "yeah , but..." you should just give them whatever they want from the outset.

Maybe. My NJ was very crafty and worked full time from home, which gave her home field advantage. She is far nuttier and far meaner than I could ever be. In the effort to drive each other out of the house, I lost.

You other guys might have better luck with these tactics. But don't sabotage your own electrical system.
