Ok so I am sure everyone in here has to have a little pet peeve or 2……. nobody is 100% compatible and however minor it may be, sometimes we get under each other’s skin.
What is the one thing (big or small) that your FI/DH does at home, that drives you a little crazy?
My FI will follow me around the house rearranging the things that I put away. We are both very OCD, and like certain items in the house to be one way, however we don’t necessarily agree on that at all. Oh and he always leaves the towel on the counter instead of back on the rack.
Oh and lastly….. he likes his scrambled eggs super runny, I like mine actually cooked…. he doesn’t understand the concept of taking his half out of the frying pan before mine so that his can be runny and mine can be cooked. We’ve been through this a million and one times. Drives me freaking cray, but I love him to pieces.
So? Lets hear it!

My fiance (whom I love very very much and have for the last 11 years) lets his 120 pound pit bull sleep on the bed with him! So when I fall asleep with him watching a movie or something (I usually crash on his couch) she hops right up there with us and sleeps. I don’t like being pinned (anxiety disorder) and usually wake up in the middle of the night in a panic attack. If it’s not that, then she’ll wake up and walk around the bed and lick my face. So unsanitary!
We’ve had discussion after discussion about how irritating this is, but since we don’t live together yet and I don’t usually sleep in his bed, he doesn’t understand why it’s a big deal. I love him and I love his dog, but I would much rather have a peaceful night of sleep without getting crushed by a giant dog.

When he doesn’t respond when I ask him a question! He will smile or look at me and give a half chuckle, and I have to repeat it a couple more times or say “I actually want a response” or “are you going to answer me?” before he will answer my question. He also doesn’t hear me a lot of the time, or pretends he doesn’t, which can get annoying especially when I am asking him something when he is playing on his ipad or something. The last thing is something that I think most guys do – when I ask him a question with two options “eg. do you want to see X-Men or The Hobbit” he will say yes, which again doesn’t answer my question at all.
I do love him to pieces, but sometimes I want to tear my hair out when I want an answer to a question!

I have a bit of misophonia, so it’s more about me than what he does, but I can’t handle hearing him chewing. I don’t like certain sounds like chewing, slurping, utensil scraping, coughing, or loud sneezes. We always eat with music on or the tv on because I can’t handle the sounds.
So, it irrationally angers or irritates me to hear him do any of these. I’m a weirdo.

MrsPiggles: He likes to pick….can get very annoying. Especially when it is one of the kids and they coninue to tell him to stop then start whining.

He laughs when I get upset at his cat, but then gets upset if I dont “support him” when hes upset with my dog.
Also he drives too recklessly and then sideseat drives when I drive

My FI is NEVER serious…. Most of the time it’s funny and entertaining But not when it’s time for a serious conversation. I’m trying to get to some kind of decision out of the conversation and he throws a one liner out there… Never serious. It doesn’t help that I seriously have the patience of a two year old.
Oh oh and were also long distance right now. I’m really not a huge phone person which is hard because he is needier than I 🙂 but I hate when he calls to tell me about his video games….he can go on and on. Blah! I love him to pieces but I have absolutely no idea what he’s talking about….nor do I really care. Haha. But it’s something he enjoys and gets excited about and so I listen and never complain 🙂

he eats my food or drinks my juice – and being 5 mo pregnant, this makes me really mad! lol

…. he eats 😛
My mother drilled table manners and the “correct” way to hold cutlery into me as a kid (how anyone deems what is “correct” is beyond me but stick with me! heh). We butted heads over it big time but seeing the way DH holds his cutlery… well it’s going to be me teaching table manners when we have kids. There’s also the small matter of dressing appropriately for fancy dinners. I recall being somewhat embarrassed the first time he met my parents (on both counts) but I blame myself for not giving him a little more direction 😛

My dh has this habit of leaving his towel on the bed in the morning after his shower, drives me nuts! To be fair he has become very good at putting the milk away after 5 years together, I figure one battle at a time…

BtoR: haha yeah I feel your pain with the darn towels…. my guy is extremely ocd and neat, but I don’t know why the towels are always all over the place.
I’m loving this thread, a lot of comments about food!!! haha

MrsPiggles: Don’t get me wrong, I love my dh to the moon and back but there are lots of little things that get to me if I have had a bad day. On a regular day I don’t care but when I have had a bad day and come home to a towel on the bed, milk out of the fridge all day and a messy kitchen which I swear was clean when I left I can lose it… For him I guess it is things like bugging him about how he peels the vegetables, or me following him around rearranging his sorting…

- Wedding: September 2016 - Our Castle
I live with FI, FMIL and FBIL..
FI:Being noisy when he comes to bed (im just dosing off), His need to over explain alot and repeat our plan/list of things to do. I love him to pieces and if i tell him i dont like something he will do his absolute best to correct himself! Oh and he is an over stresser!!!! We love our puppy but he researches to much so now he is worried about her getting bloat, being poisoned, being snached for dog fights etc.. i love her to but i dont focus on all the bad maybies..
FMIL: Talking to me as she walks to another room, talking to me while i have headphones on or im in the kitchen (Cant Hear Anything But Mumbles). Nagging for me to do something because she feels the need for it to be done then?! But she is one of my best friends and a great hoot! 🙂 stays up with us till the early hours of the morning hatting and having a drink..
FBIL: Doesnt think of or consider others when he does things, never knows if he will be home for dinner and turns up his nose at our healthier meals so FMIL makes a different meal for him and usually his girlfriend. She is lovely but they are both young and a bit inconsiderate. For eg. putting their cups/dishes in the dishwasher?! taking the finished can of drink to the recycling bit in the laundry?! small things that are not hard are so anoying! especially when i cant say anything directly (dont want to cause trouble)
