The bathroom and the gyno’s office.  That’s about it.

The mall. I cannot take my husband to the mall. He is such a miserable person there, and it kills my shopping buzz. But I’m actually getting to the same cranky level that he is when it comes to crowded shopping areas, so it’s not an issue any more. 🙂

@iarebridezilla:  Ugh, I feel your pain! My ex would seriously get mad at me if I forgot something and had to revisit the same aisle! But he was a jerk about most things, lol. My FI and I can go pretty much everywhere together, except when he goes to church with his brother. Not my scene, so I opt out. Also #2 in the bathroom. #1 in the bathroom is fine and welcome conversation 🙂

@Kimberley25:  Same here.  We do everything together, even the grocery store and Home Depot, lol. 

He’s well-behaved, though, it totally makes a difference.  😉

I wouldn’t allow my ex-husband to go anywhere at all with me.  He could even make a mall trip miserable. 

One of the best things about my husband now is that he’s always happy and in a good mood, so he makes everything fun. 

He has, however, banned me from Wal-Mart, because I hate Wal-Mart and I’m a complete bitch in there.  At least he hates Wal-Mart, too, so it works out fine. 

We’re always together except at work.

Any kind of shopping….grocery store, Target, the mall, the garden section of Home Depot…yep, any kind of shopping. He rushes me, gives me funny looks, and then sighs really loudly like he’s dying.

Starbucks. He drives me nuts when he goes to Starbucks. He hates coffee. He hates the smell of coffee. But, he loooovvvveeesss to tell everybody there how much he hates coffee. Irritating.

I don’t get to go to the mechanic with him.

@iarebridezilla:  Agree with PP, SO cannot come into the bathroom with me.  It’s too small and he’s always in my way besides the privacy part.


I’m not allowed in his closet (MUST CLEAN!!!!!!!) or at the driving range with him but I don’t golf anyway it’s more of a “his time” thing.

I’d say any public mens and ladies bathrooms.  Probably the gyno office too.

My ex-H was also like a 3 yer old throwing a tantrum in the grocery store.  That shit gets old quick!  I suggest you let him get the groceries once in a while.  He is an adult and he needs to know how to get food.  What if something happened to you?

@iarebridezilla:  EXACTLY!! LOL! He totally insists on coming with me to Starbucks so he can, you know, read the paper, relax in the sun, drink an iced tea, bitch at EVERYBODY there that it smells like coffee. Seriously?!? It’s a coffee house!!

Honestly, though, it’s kinda funny.

It would be my kitchen, I would ban him in it if I could. He is ALWAYS in my way when am trying to cook/bake. He wants to help, no you are not a help just go play with our son.

@iarebridezilla:  I really enjoy reading your posts, you always make me laugh.

My husband is also not allowed to go shopping with me..why…because hes a putzer. He doddles around looking at everything…I’m in Wal-mart, its time to get shit done and get out. I don’t want to hang out and look at crap I don’t need…

nowhere really, except maybe the mall. I like shopping for clothes alone. I don’t think he’s ever wanted to go with me anyways.

He used to not let me in his bathroom because it was so gross. But, now I’ve got him committed to keeping it tidy, so I can get in once a week to clean it.

I do most of the grocery shopping since I cook, but he’s allowed to go with me. I usually make him go if it’s on a weekend, but most of the time I stop on my way home from work so I run in by myself.  

Definitely nothing wrong with not having to everything together!
