@wandering_gypsy:  He puts empty soda cans on the floor next to his side of the bed despite the fact that the trash can now lives directly next to his side to prevent this. UGH

I was in a serious car accident in December and long story short I’ve been staying at my parents’ house ever since (no marriage problems or anything like that, its just closer to where I work and its easier for them to tote me back and forth while my crushed leg heals). I have been going home on the weekends though. Anyway, because of this my DH had to put all of our xmas decorations away on his own. Last weekend I discovered that instead of putting them all away in the bins we normally store them in, he only put some stuff in there and stored everything else in random places all over the house! It is going to be a PITA next year trying to hunt all this crap down. Why? Just, why?

@BluebonnetBride:  My FI does the same thing with the trash. When I got home from work yesterday, I noticed that he had set some grabage on the lid to the trashcan, instead of putting it inside. So frustrating!

@wandering_gypsy:  Oh gosh I completely feel your pain, my FI doesn’t see a need to upgrade anything that is “still working”…my recent reply was… “right so we are going to live with a bunch of old cr*p for the rest of our lives even if it looks disgusting and doesn’t go with anything” hahaha poor thing was a bit shocked by that.

@wandering_gypsy:  Lol, if I were you, I’d talk to DH again and if he didn’t have a very good reason/sentimental attachment to the bed I would totally just do it while he was at work or whatever. Don’t get me wrong, I dont’ do this to DH a lot, but he can be totally irrational on about some of our “stuff.” But then when I force the issue and he has time to think about it and adjust, he sees that it doesn’t matter. (We live in a shoe box and will for the forseeable future, but he wants to keep a TON of stuff in storage that we don’t need and he has never used in the 6 years I’ve known him…)

My recent thing… We have some tool sets from Ikea. They’re not super nice, but they work and I’m glad we have them. He is apparently physically incapable of putting them back in their holder boxes. Seriously, I spent a long time while he was abroad and I moved us putting the tools back and finding them so they would be together in the right place at the new apartment. I swear, he’s been back 6 weeks and left on a business trip. I went to find the hammer and NONE OF THE TOOLS ARE IN THE BOX! WTH? I can’t find the hammer at all. Again, we live in a shoe box, what on earth did he do with them? I told him I was buying my own tool set and “locking the ever loving shit out of it” and he’s not allowed to touch them. haha.

I’m not even that handy! But sometimes you need tools darn it!

@wandering_gypsy:  OMG, mine cant’ figure out dishes either. I moved us in and he said “put things where they’ll have a place and then I’ll learn.” It’s hilarious how off it is sometimes. I just move them back and eventually after getting things out enough hopefully he’ll figure it out. 

In our apartment in DC, I kid you not, I had to label the drawers where we kept our dishes, pans, tubberware, etc. He could not grasp what would go together at all. It was soo frustrating even though he didn’t mean to make me mad. He just didn’t really care where it went so he didn’t think about it or didn’t bother to learn. He fixed it once there was a list, but it looked childish.

@wandering_gypsy:  If he gave you the okay, then go sell it! When the room looks better he will be forced to admit you were right. And you set the precedent that you handle decorating decisions 🙂

What is it with men putting things NEAR where they go…. we have a tiny trash can and DH will put pig garbage near it…. next to it, under it, on top. I want to yell PUT IT IN THE TRASH CAN. When we buy our forever house, the trash can will be HUGE and if he ever puts trash near it, I will probably throw him in it.

@wandering_gypsy:  Mine decided it would be fun to buy cheaper dog food. The result? a gassy, farty, smelly dog that stinks up the whole house with her rancid ass-gas.

@wandering_gypsy:  

This seems to be a thing with a lot of guys. As long as something still functions, who cares if it’s ugly?! 

This is why they need us. That kind of mentality just isn’t healthy 🙂

@wandering_gypsy:  Where do I begin…

Most recently, I found a dirty spoon on the arm of the couch.  He was eating peanut butter off it the night before and just…left…it…there.  WHO DOES THAT??

I couldn’t find the can opener the other day so I asked him, “Maybe it’s under your pillow??” LOL
