    This is hurtful in two ways. First, it gets at your husband's elemental need to be a provider, supporter and capable person in the house.

    A better choice is to pick your battles. If he's in the middle of a task and you think that he's doing it wrong, then evaluate whether it really matters, keeping in mind that, just because he's doing something differently than you would doesn't mean that he's doing it wrong—he is, after all, an adult too.
