I saw Before Midnight last week and seriously keep laughing over the lady telling her husband “Men believe in magical fairies that pick up the dirty clothes from the floor and wash all the dishes.”
So, bees, what magical things does your SO believe in?
My SO believes our apartment has magical force fields that mask the sound of his massive farts as long as he’s not in the same room as me. Seriously, dude. There isn’t even a closed door between us! You’re in the hall FIVE FEET from where I’m sitting in the living room! 😀

Haha! My fiancé believes the same thing. He also seems to believe it at work too… He was shocked I heard him fart from downstairs and then I pointed out that if I could hear that, people can definitely hear him farting all day at work!

My SO believes that if I’m silent after he’s ripped one, I didn’t hear it, therefore he shouldn’t have to excuse himself. Although he sits less than 5 feet from me in the room. :S
He also believes that his clothing magically appears clean when he puts them on, until I screech in disgust at the not-so-discreet stains on them and insist he change to something cleaner. Guess who gets to hunt down clean clothing? Yep. Me.
He also believes that drinks replenish themselves after he’s inhaled a whole 2-liter of soda, tea, punch, water, juice, etc. Yeah, water can get replenished, but the others cost money. 😐

@MexiPino: Mine seriously believes all the old wives tales his mother and grandmother ever told him. Like you can’t take a shower when you’re sweating because your heart might stop. Does that count? I’m lucky that he does not believe in laundry fairies and he almost never leaves clothes on the floor and if he does it’s on his side of the bed and I almost never go over there. He does, however, very obviously believe in the kitchen fairy. You know, the fairy who puts the food back in the fridge and picks up after you after you’re done making a sandwich or whatever. Yesterday I walked in the kitchen to find strawberries, an open container of sugar, a cutting board and a big knife sitting on the counter. I have kids. Knives and counters are not friends. :-/ He also leaves the water jug sitting out, A LOT. And my worst pet peeve (AAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!) he leaves the do-hicky up when he takes a shower so when i go to turn the water on I get cold water on my head instead of coming out of the faucet. He’s nothing if he’s not forgetful.

Mine thinks the Borrowers are constantly taking things like his car keys, wallet, etc. If he’d JUST put them in the same place when he gets home, he wouldn’t have to spend twenty minutes tearing the house apart in search of them!

@Pinkmoon: Oh lord… I hope my guy isn’t doing it at work! He starts a new job on Monday!
@Sweet_Tea: At least he’s aware that you are the clean clothes fairy!! Thankfully, my man was single for a very long time and does his own laundry.
@jadlnc: You can’t take a shower when you’re sweating? WHAT? So you have to STOP sweating? How do you do that? That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard.
@Twyla_Smith: LOL I have to admit, I am the one guilty of that. To be fair- I moved into his apartment and I’ve only been here a couple months, so I was still figuring out “my space”. We’re moving to a new one in a couple weeks and he’ll be at work while I unpack… so *I* get to decide where things go. 🙂

@MexiPino: Well you have a perfectly good reason! Husband has been doing this ever since we’ve lived together, in both our apartment and here. He once found his keys under a book under a table that he never uses, only after I had to spend a good ten minutes squeezing my car out because he parked so darned close behind me.
He once lost his cell phone in a snow bank when he was shoveling snow, and the only way to find it that time was to call it and see which part of the snow lit up. *sighs*

@MexiPino: Old wives tales are hilarious! My ex told me I couldn’t eat mayonnaise while breastfeeding. I said “Watch me” lol

@MexiPino: Mine seems to think that I will magically know when he has dirty clothes in his bag or tissues in his pants. And now when I check he says “Oh, I’d tell you if there was anything in there”. Yep…aside from the 287 other times that you forgot to tell me.

@jadlnc: That cracked me up for some reason. (Partly because for a second I imagined it really literally, like eating it with a spoon from the jar while there’s a baby on your boob with this grouchy/toldyouso look on your face)
I think my FH must believe in dish fairies. He seems confused about what happens to a dirty dish and how clean dishes appear…

My SO believes in the faerie that brings groceries home every week. Unfortunately when I am very low on cash this means I struggle to find food in the house and get hungry and grumpy.

My FI honestly 100% without a doubt believes Dynamo and Kris Angel are legit. I’m sorry i’m way too sceptical. we argue about it every time he watches it. i can’t even watch it coz it’s ridiculous. I think it’s cool however they do it, but it’s obviously an illusion or just trickery but i’m sorry i really cannot and will never believe that they are totally real or surely they would be doing more important and useful things than putting peoples mobile phones in glass bottles and silly tricks like that.
