Ok, so, I am trying not to lose it because my wonderful honey just destroyed my beautiful Anne Taylor blouse in the laundry. I can’t even be mad because he was trying to help me out by doing all of my laundry, since I’ve been so busy lately. He just does not understand that boy laundry is NOT the same as girl laundry. There are all kinds of special directions on clothing labels that do not involve tossing them in hot water on the “heavy” cycle, then doing the same in the dryer.
The sweet thought was worth more than the shirt, in the end. I’m just wondering, though – for newly co-habitating Bees, are you finding any lingering Single Guy habits that are a little tricky when you’re living together?

i’m not newly cohabitating, so i’m pretty sure this habbit won’t be broken. but it’s his eating out. he won’t bring lunch to work, even when i offer to pack it. and he’d probably eat out for dinner every night if i let him, but i try to cook as often as possible. even when we’ve spent a lot of money and should be trying to budget, he wants to eat out!

My husband has a REALLY bad habit of leaving mail piled up on the counters for weeks! He is gone during the week, and I check the mail daily and leave it for him to go through when he gets home (it’s almost entirely all addressed to him). I go through what I can, and toss out the junk. He sorts out the bills to pay and leaves the rest in a GIANT stack. Drives me bonkers! It’s not an organized stack either, so I don’t know what I can throw away and what to keep!

@bestbuddies: Haha I was about to say the same thing.
@5292010: My FI does the SAME THING. I don’t understand why he can’t just open the mail! I know there is almost no way I am breaking him of that habit though

Putting dishes away or in the dish drain when they are still greasy. I am not the grand champion dishwasher, but I feel like 1/2 our “clean” dishes are not actually clean. It is really horrifying… I really hope our next apartment has a dishwasher.
