I have a couple (that I can think of off the top of my head):
-I leave my hair balled up on the wall of the shower and 99% of the time forget to remove it. This grosses him out (as it should)
-I’m obsessed with sunflower seeds, and leave bowls of the shells around the house (in the TV room, our bedroom….) He likens it to a smoker leaving full ashtrays around

@MsGolightly: Me to about the hair in the drain!
Maybe just that I’m bossy 🙂 Its my house and I lived alone for so long I just dont share well and I’m a total my way or the high way type of gal

not rinsing dishes and pots and pans immediately so they get food dried on them. and if that’s my worst habit, he’s lucky 🙂

lol, It drives him nuts that I’m a neat freak. I can’t stand when he spends the night or comes over and leaves his crap on the floor. I usually end up gettin on him about putting his crap on my desk. I swear he gets it from his mother…..who I don’t think owns any cleaner of any sort and doesn’t believe in putting things away when you’re done using them.

I’m pretty good with the hair (wasn’t always though!), but I do tend to leave my clothes all.over.the.place. His side of the bedroom looks like a Gap store, mine looks like a tornado hit it! 😉

Hah! He hates that I tend to clutter the coffee table with magazines, pay check stubs, makeup, nail polish, and books. Also, on my side of the sofa, I take my socks off at night and they sit there until I clean the house….lol

@lauren810c: Ditto! He’s actually started a ritual of “stretching” my fingers back and giving me arm/hand rubs because he thinks it’ll make me stop cracking. I’m not sure about that, but I’ll take massages anytime! My hips and back pop too… maybe I should tell him that his “treatment” works, so he should be thorough. 🙂
I take my bra and pants off within seconds of getting home, so there will be the occasional bra hanging on a dining room chair. Oops!
And… I grind my teeth when I sleep. Thank goodness he still stays with me!

I always forget to turn off the lights. I go to the bathroom, I leave the light on. Get something from the basement, leave the light on.
And I’m really bad about picking up dog poop in the yard. When we moved from our apartment to a house with a yard, we agreed that we’d be diligent about scooping the poop. But I only pick up poop every few days. Mr. S will run outside with a baggie as soon as he sees the dog dropping a deuce, but I’ll let it go for a few days and then pick up all the land mines at once.
Mr. S hates that.

I leave books EVERYWHERE. I’m not the world’s neatest person by any means, but I generally manage to keep it in the realm of acceptability/basic hygiene. But the Future Mister Beluga cannot understand how I need to be reading more than 20 books at once. I just do, okay? I just. F’in. Do.

@MsGolightly: Ha! I do the same thing with my hair in the shower. FI doesn’t notice though.
@sloth: I remember seeing an ad for a service that scoops the poop and it was really pretty reasonable, I think around $50 a month? Of course it’s not a daily thing, I think they come less frequently for that price, but I would TOTALLY get it, it just turned out it wasn’t available in my neighborhood so i couldn’t. Would be worth EVERY PENNY. Just made me think of that reading your post. We have a tiny front yard and the dogs, for some reason, want to go there instead of the huge backyard so it gets rank really fast in summer. Blech.
As for the topic at hand:
I am sure it’s 2 basic things: I am pretty bossy, and I talk WAY too much. FI is the quiet type and I talk all the freakin’ time.

He hates that I think I’m always right. Or maybe he just hates it that I am.

I mess up the sheets so they’re all jumbled up and he has to fix them every night.
I leave crumbs on the table and in the kitchen.
I forget to run the garbage disposal.
I leave leftovers in the fridge for weeks.
And much more. He’s obviously the clean one in the relationship.

#1 is definitely that I’m messy. I just don’t really care about things staying picked up. I care about things being CLEAN but in terms of leaving work papers on the breakfast table? Or my cds on the coffee table? or my receipts on the end table? I’m blind to it lol. I am about 100x better since we moved in together but me being “on my game” is still about 10x messier than FI would prefer 🙂
