Discussion Topic - Weaponized Incompetence
I think many of us can relate to this. I certainly can! I saw it with SDnow22 Feral Forger when she was living with us - she would do the dishes when asked but do them badly - so badly in fact that her father would just give up giving her any dishwashing duty at all. I see that in my husband with respect to household and event planning as well as our general activities. I see it with respect to SD15 B/M's schooling. I see this sometimes with B/M's approach to household chores such as cleaning the bath tub.
I saw this on a site I like to read frequently and it was in relation to people who cheat. In the links, the term is applied to Women primarily, and applied to husbands and children. I think it happens to anyone and everyone. Its at the root of many of us stepparents frustrations with skids and partners/spouses. I know its a BIG frustration point for ME.

How can YOU relate? How do you battle this? How can we WIN the battle?
