I am wondering if anyone can give me some advice. My husband has this
tool that makes a clicking sound everytime he turns it. He said he
can not stop the noise. I'm getting angry because that noise wakes
the baby. He's always working on his car in the attached garage which
is right next to the baby's room. It seems he is always using that
annoying thing. He named the thing "rat shit". My husband is weird, so
I can see how he got that dumb name for it. I think giving tools names
is really bizarre, but that's just how my husband is. Besides that,
there are probably rats in that garage because he has so much car junk
in there, so I dont doubt some rat really shit on that damn tool. I
wish the rat would have eaten it or taken it to it's nest. All I ever
hear is click click click, then the baby starts hollaring. Either
that tool goes, or he gets a quiet one, or else he is going to have to
go to his friends garage to work on cars. I've had it !
If anyone knows what this tool thing is, do they make quiet ones that
dont click? I'll get him one for Christmas, and then I can throw the
noisy one in the trash. If you dont know what it is, I know he puts
these round things on it and has a whole box full of different sizes.
He calls those things socks its. (more of his weird naming stuff).
They dont look anything like socks.

Just to let you know, they are called Ratchets and Sockets. These are
the names they have from the manufacturer, not a name your husband
I really can not understand how a ratchet can irritate anyone or
particularly wake a baby, even without a wall in between. I think you
are overly sensitive. I'd like to recommend therapy but without
actually seeing and hearing the situation I wont say anymore. For all
I know, he has a really noisy ratchet, even though I have never heard
any of them to be more than a quiet click and dont know how one could
get loud. I suggest you go to a tool store and spin a ratchet in the
store. Is it as loud? If he was running power tools I could see a
possible noise issue, but a ratchet? Give me a break !
Another suggestion, you can buy sound proofing material at many
building centers. Put some on the shared wall between the babys
bedroom and garage. I've never installed any, but I think it just
glues on. (Of course if it uses a caulking gun for the glue, I
suppose you'll find that too loud too !). I think some women just look
for things to complain about..... I'm glad I married one who only
complains when there is a real problem, like when our water heater
sprung a leak. and I was complaining about that too.
I wish you luck in your marriage. I think you'll need it.

If I were lewd, I would suggest that you tell your husband that if he
does his work out in the garage without waking up the baby, then you
will "_____________<fill in the blank>___________". Then he'll be
quiet. But since I'm not lewd, I won't suggest it.
It is a rat shit wench. Just be glad that he doesn't have an air wench.
They are really noisy. And sometimes if he has a hard time loosening
nuts he uses Liquid Wench.
