Does anyone else have something their FI does that drives them nuts. Here’s mine: Before I was with FI I had a Costco membership. I cancelled it because I was single and didn’t cook/eat a whole lot. But now that I’m with FI I cook a lot more and there are things we go trough a lot of and things he specifically only gets at Costco. He has a membership, but the second person on his membership is his sister. It’s not that she can’t afford her own (she makes more than FI and I combined) and she doesn’t pay for half of it or anything but he won’t take her off and put me on because he doesn’t want to upset her. He keeps asking me to pick things up from there and I always have to remind him “Ummm I can’t..” And then he always says we will go later which never happens. I’ve told him I’ll get my own but he says no because it’s a waste of money, which it totally is, but damn it I want to go to the store. There are things, like alcohol for the wedding, I would like to get and it would be a fraction of the cost of going to our local grocery/liquor store. It just drives me nuts that he’s so afraid of upsetting his sister that he won’t put me on the membership. She’s a grown adult who can afford her own, he just put her on his I be nice a few years ago.
Anyone else have something small and stupid that makes them go bonkers or am I being completely insane.

Mine is much smaller than your AHH moment. I litterally CAN’T stand when FI touches me with his feet! Not because i’m grossed out by them or anything. I’ll give him foot rubs after work… But i’m extremely ticklish, like more ticklish than any human should be. He likes to rub his feet against my feet or legs when we are laying in bed or sometimes he does it when we are on the couch. EVERY single time I jump or yelp because it tickles so bad!! AHHHHH

Peaceoutboyscout: Haha I think that might be FIs AHHHH moment with me :P. He’s extremely ticklish where I’m not even slightly.

Milibee13: What type of membership does he have? If it’s a business membrship, thee can be up to 6 additional card members. If it’s a Gold Star membership- one additional member who is supposed to live in the same household- that would be you, not his sister.

julies1949: He has the gold and I know all that stuff he’s just a pansy with her. He forgot to pay it when it came time a couple months ago and she called him screaming because she needed stuff. Well so do I damn it! His sister is a whole different animal.

Milibee13: The next time the two of you are at Costco together, march him over to the membership counter and have him make the change.

He hijacks my iPad and it makes me want to strangle him. If I download a game it’s because I want to play, not because I want him to beat it for me. Oh and what he does to my Pandora… grrrrrrr! He deletes my stations to add his own, and thumbs up songs I want thumbs downed. Best part? He has his own damn Pandora and still feels the need to sabotage mine!

Milibee13: I understand him putting her on his account to be nice a few years ago, but the two of you are becoming a family unit soon. If he really doesn’t want to upset her, he can get her her own membership as an early birthday or christmas present. Kill two birds with one stone. He doesn’t have to look for a gift for her, she’s happy b/c she can still shop at costco (and is now on the hook to renew her own membership from now on), and he can put you on his membership.

My wonderful boyfriend luckily loves to cook and is great at it….problem? Sanitary wise, not so much. He won’t wash fruits or vegtables AT ALL unless I’m there to pretty much intercept and do it for him and he won’t even wash his hands before starting to make dinner ahhh!

When FI messes with my hair and my hair is easily tangled lol. Also, when I curl my hair, I really don’t want it messed with! That shit takes ages to do!

He doesn’t like it when I lie on the couch, because there isn’t any way to turn or flip the cushions… his rule is that we must take the throw cushions off and sit with our weight on the side closest to the arm in order to try and help make them wear evenly. I just want to lie on the couch sometimes…

babeba: Wow, that’s a bit OCD. When he’s not home you should just flop all over that sucker and giggle madly. That’s what I would do.

Milibee13: I’d have a canary over the Costco thing!! Geez!! Let his sister get her own membership!!!
My annoyance with my FI is over caller ID. I LOVED having caller ID. When we moved in together I was stunned to learn that he had never had it and does NOT want it. We have had several discussions about it, I think I have very good reasons for wanting to know who is calling at 5 am and hanging up, and several of my friends call and don’t leave a message because they figure I will know they have called.
But no, he says, if I want to find out who is calling, answer the phone. Grrrrr.

The upside, I guess, is not having to deal with the madness that is Costco! But I totally get where you’re coming from!
For me, my SO doesn’t know that dirty and clean clothes go in the hamper or closet/dresser and NOT in a heap on the floor. And I’m not exaggerating, it has been this way since we’ve lived together for almost 7 years. Consistently. And I want to strangle a 34 year old woman sometimes because of it. I used to do what I called “operation clothes on floor” where I would put the entire heap (whether clean or dirty) into the hamper once a week after a warning. I’ve stopped that for the most part because she gets mad, but sometimes I still consider doing it… 🙂

MrsYokiman: it is actually really comfortable to sit that way too sometimes, the arms fit my curves pretty well… But you bet your darn tooshie I was lying on that couch today before he got home!
