I go crazy by the pile of just washed clothes that only get bigger or smaller on the bedroom floor. It disappears maybe once a month. My best shirts stay on the bottom of the pile, permanently wrinkled. I would do my laundry myself but she says she can manage in between soap operas.
He is actually something of a domestic cleaning freak. But only about some things (!). And my personal fave is that he uses new towels to wipe up the freakin' floors. I am constantly buying towels, ie, I just bought more yesterday! I must have clean linens! Auggh,
When my husband wakes up early (or the middle of the night) he clangs around like it is one in the afternoon. This is especially irritating as I am very cranky when I am tired. I have learned that my words can not help the situation, so I roll my eyes, roll over and try to go back to sleep.
My Dad's like that. He's an early to bed, early to rise type, but worse, thinks that the world should come to a crashing stop when he's asleep, but everyone should get up at 5am to 6am. He's good at whistling, slamming doors, etc.
My wife will keep dead-silence in any situation, for any question or discussion. After a few minutes, she will say "I have already replied." Her silence solves several problems.. do not create any new problem. But at times it annoys me when I feel that I am on her hate-list.
I come home early and even finish cooking to go out to gym together and then either he comes late or gives some reasons to skip gym then that really annoys me (when in fact he needs the gym more than me).
Well I know an Indian couple who had similar problem as she wanted to watch serials and he likes news/sports channels. They got two TV's(with cable) have wireless headsets to simultaneously not disturb each other from there favorite programs
Do roommates/former partners count in this discussion? My first choice (breathe) was already taken, and I don't have space enough here to rival the word count in War and Peace, so let''s see if I can think of something unusual.
How about wearing my underwear? (my roomie is a tranny) Wearing raccoon eye make up, and thinking it looks good? Watching golf and baseball? This one really, really irks, since I think both are about as thrilling as watching paint dry, and (s)he gets totally fixated, unable to hear any intrusion from the outside world. I hate to think of the number of meals I have not been able to rescue because (s)he was cooking, and baseball came on. Even worse is LISTENING to it on the radio. WTF! There is so little to see on television. Radio is worse.
And then there is this overwhelming need to be noticed. The car has to have a bunch of stuff hanging all over the mirror, stuck to the windshield, and windows. I feel like we are driving around in a moving billboard we don't get compensated for. The reaview mirror in this car has sunglasses on it. The windshield has a gooseneck gps unit holder. The gps unit is one of the handheld ones, for geocaching (another obsession), and(s)he fiddles with it all the time while driving. Then there is the octopus of wires coming out of the cigarette lighter, with a power cord for the gps unit, a cell phone charger, and assorted other chargers we just have to have. And the ashtray....always overflowing. But the biggest thingthat annoys me is the overall phoniness of this person. (S)he or the offspring have done everything anyone else has done, done it better, and know more about it. Yeah, right!
Snoring, talking about "cheese" after he works out (sounds inviting, doesn't it?), the attention he gives to our (really, his) bitchy cat Lucy who thinks he belongs to her, making too much noise at the most important scene of a movie (thank heavens for Tevo). Oops, got caried away.
He hogs the tv remote. BIG time. No matter what, he never let's it stray from his possession into mine. On the rare occasion that I manage to wrestle if from him (made easier by the fact that he will have left it lying) he get's all possessive and does this flat, open handed gesture thing - that masculine 'give me back my toy' thing.
The fact that I don't even like TV is not the point. It's still as annoying as if I was a box watcher.
Feeds the dog chicken and other animal bones from his meals, occasionally on the floor if he thinks I'm not looking. Refuses to believe this is why the dog throws up at night after those same feedings. Three husbands in 40 years, something happens to this one, I'll never have another. Too much high maintenance. Love him, but....
ooohh boy! I picked a bad night to find this forum!
Putting my metal bakeware in the dishwasher so it rusts, never cleaning up his mess in the front room, never coming out of the bedroom except to grab a drink or eat- he stays on his computer constantly.
Not wishing me a happy mother's day! Did he forget I am a mother?!?!? Oh yeah, that's right - she my daughter unless he feels the need to assert his manly authority!!!!!
Cooking in the kitchen and never cleaning up any of the disaster he leaves, insisting that the garage is full of junk but won't let me get rid of any of "his items" - anyone know a good use for a sega system, a 10 yr old dell computer, a 1st generation surround sound or a broken dishwasher?
Never putting tools back where they belong - okay, never putting ANYTHING back where it belongs and then grumping and griping he can never find anything.....
Hmmm... this is beginning to sound like a new hub.... I think I better stop before I remember where I hid the large knives!!!!
What would you do or advise a friend to do if they had NO idea that their spouse had a tiny portable spy cam and was caught with it by one of their kids? (spouses step child). When confronted he tried to deny and hide...
This was my situation. It doesn't matter if it is a spouse, a partner, a significant other, a lover. It doesn't matter if you were married, engaged, dating, divorced, separated, fighting. What does matter is...
