Woman: "Are you ever going to help me with the kids?"
Man: "I try to help as much as I can."
Woman: "But you don't do anything. When I ask for help, you always say you can't, or you'll do it later, or some other excuse."
Man: "But, honey, you don't understand. The more I help, the more I cause problems. I can get in the way. I can do something wrong. I can mess something up. The more I'd help, the more you'd need to clean up after me. By NOT helping, I'm actually doing more than you think."
