I thought this would be a funny thread. Things our DH’s do that make us scratch our heads!
I have two:
1. He looses keys. He is seriously the worst person with keys. I told him I’m going to staple them to his head one of these days! haha We have 6 extra house keys I made…does that tell ya somethin’?!
2. Air conditioning. He likes to pretend he’s an eskimo. Energy is expensive and especially in Las Vegas where it’s effin 119 outside. I turn the air down to 74 at night so he will be comfortable. I ALWAYS wake up in the morning, freezing my ass off, with the air turned down to 69 or 70!! I’m like what the eff are you doing!?!!!! haha Oh and he has a thick ass blanket and all bundled up.

Comes home from work hot and sweaty and GROUCHY.. I tell him he’ll feel better if he goes and takes a shower, but does he? NO, it’s like he can’t because I suggested it. He has to wait an appropriate amount of time for it to be his idea then go lol. My DH is a dork 🙂

@figgnewton: Lol I’m on your husband’s side when it comes to the air conditioning. 74 is way too hot for me! I need it around 70, at least. Preferably 68. But I’m a hot natured person so I know that I’m not the norm.
As for my BF. I have noticed that he HATES closing the shower curtain. Even though I’ve told him that leaving the shower curtain open and bunched up together, it creates mildew.
But does he care? No.
In his mind, he needs the shower curtain open so he can make sure there’s no one hiding in the shower ready to kill him.
When I first found out about this, I was like “Whaaaa….”
To compromise though, we leave my shower curtain halfway open. :p And when we get a place together, we apparently have to get a shower curtain that is completely clear and see-through. That way, I can close the curtain and he can be happy knowing there’s not an ax murderer waiting to kill him. :p

My husband just bought a new pair of running shoes a couple of weeks ago and after wearing them once, they ripped. It isn’t a bad rip or anything but he was frustrated so he called Zappo’s (where he got them) and asked them to trade them. They were amazing and just send him a new pair, free, and he didn’t have to return the ripped ones. He was so excited to get a new pair again.
He won’t wear them though. He still wears the ripped pair. He says that he doesn’t want to get the new pair all dirty.
I don’t understand it.

@LadyBlackheart: Ugh I would be happy to get the air set to 73. Every time I change it to 73 he turns it back to 76 :/
My DH doesn’t really do anything too strange other than clean the apartment at weird times. Sometimes right before bed he all of a sudden starts cleaning like a mad man because the mood just hits.

@Birdee106: O.o This made me crack up.
@LadyBlackheart: I’m on your BF’s side! haha I hate closing the shower curtain. Freaks me out. DH always closes it then gives me a big lecture about how it makes the bathroom look nicer for guests when it’s closed. I crack up. (:

He’s like the most patient man EVER, but sometimes he will get angry at really stupid little things. Like if I am blocking his way by accident, he’ll be like “move move move” in an irritated way… even though I am only delaying him by like 2.5 seconds lol. He gets like this when he’s in food shopping mode or laundry mode. I guess I should be happy he likes to do these things efficiently, but it boggles my mind a little haha.

@LadyBlackheart: DH never closes shower curtains, either! Drives me nuts!
@figgnewton: I’m totally with your DH, on that one. Closed shower curtains make the bathroom look cleaner/neater imo!

@Birdee106: Oh this happens in our house too. I simply don’t get it.

@MrsBeck: Haha I also clean the apartment at weird times. I just have to be in the mood to clean and sometimes the mood strikes at strange times, what can I say? Lol!

@littlemisst08: Haha, I didn’t even think about the bathroom looking cleaner/neater argument! All I was concerned about was the mildew. :p I wonder if using that argument will work on BF…hmm….lol!

My husband is utterly unable to do anything involving food without making a mess. Serving dinner from the pot into his bowl? Some will glop onto the stove. Eating a sandwich? A whole tomato slice will fall out onto his lap. Chips and salsa? I’d better just be in another room while that’s going on. At this point, it’s just a running joke between us — he will spill/splash/drop something and I’ll just look at it and sigh and he’ll go “BABY! I’m a handful!!!”
Honestly, I don’t know how a 30-year-old man could have the eating skills of a 6-year-old, but at least he cleans up after himself when he inevitably makes a mess …

@iarebridezilla: Lol! So did he have terrible eating skills when y’all first started dating and went out to eat at restaurants? I’m just curious if he hid that from you or if he didn’t lol.
