Obviously I adore my hubs but I’m having a cranky day I guess. Some days I wonder if I married a professional nag! We joke about it a lot but right now he’s on my back about how I should cancel my gym membership bc I haven’t gone in 2 months…and it’s driving me nuts! Doesn’t he get that sometimes I slack off but I’ll get back into it again? Ahh!
Does anyone else’s husband nag them about ridiculous things?? I thought that was stereotypically the girls job! Help me feel like I’m not alone, ladies… I’m also thinking this could be somewhat humorous!

The fact that I don’t close jars securely, seal ziplocks bags properly etc. Also gives me crap whenever the cats make a mess because I’m the one who wanted them.

Ok, so not married yet, but we live together… I have a BAD coffee habit… (he hides until I’ve had my first cup) but I can’t seem keep from spilling it all over the house… not a lot… drop hear, drop there… I don’t see it when it happens, but then Poof! mess. I can’t blame it, but that’s def a pet peeve for him. :o)

I am THE WORST about putting my clean clothes away. I like to go through the folded pile in the basket DH gets on my case about it ever. single. week.

@meliss – I am SO happy to hear that you are bad with lids too! FI gives me such a hard time…just over the weekend there was a weird smell in our fridge, and turns out I left the lid loose on a jar of pickled jalepenos and they tipped over. Oops..

@Linz1231: . Apparantly my husband almost dropped jars before that I left open while grabbing them from the fridge. I always tell him, “well don’t hold them by the lid then”. There was one time when I was shaking a bottle of salad dressing that was half open, when the lid flew off and dressing rained everywhere…All over the dinner table and over my head. I started laughing but DH looked so angry and just refused to laugh. And you know how that goes, the grouchier he looked and the more I tried not to laugh, the worse it got. I sat there covered in Japanese soy dressing and laughing hysterically till I cried, him not twitching a muscle, and then I had to get up and clean it.

@jackie-o: Omg me too!!!! I don’t mind doing laundry, just don’t ask me to put it away! Seriously I would pay someone to put away my laundry just so I don’t have to do it. DH hates it.
DH gave me heck last night and then slept on the couch because the kitten and I were playing fetch with her toy mouse while he was sleeping. Normally nothing wakes him up, but apparently not last night…. So I got in trouble. I thought it was actually pretty funny. He also likes to bug me about the “presents” I leave him in the hallway. When our compost or garbage bin fills up I tie up the bag and put it in the hallway for him to take outside. I’m unclear as to whether he finds it endearing or annoying 😉

Not married yet, but we’ve been together 6 years (will be married in 19 days! yeah!) so it’s given him plenty of time to find things to be pesky about….
One of the major ones is that I don’t put his things back where they “go” (I stay with him on weekends and through the week sometimes when work allows). But the thing is, I am the one putting them back in their correct place – medicine in the medicine cabinet, DVDs in the media box, magazines on the coffee table. He leaves his things EVERYWHERE and can never find them, so I attempt to put them in a logical location and he gets upset. I don’t get it.
He also nags about stupid things like me paying for Netflix when we live beside a Blockbuster. Granted, I don’t rent a ton of movies, and some months it may be cheaper just to pick up a movie in the store. But I like to have the OPTION of renting 14 and paying the same price, like when I have a girls night and we can’t decide. I appreciate the flexibility and he looks at the cost.
But, hey, I have to admit, sometimes I can be a nagger too…lol

@meliss, That is hilarious, and totally something I would do! FI knows better now, he never lifts anything by the lid, just to be on the safe side…but he does make fun of me every chance he gets, LOL.

Our dogs. He always says “well if *someone* didn’t want them so bad, we could blah blah blah” and then I remind him that he’s technically talking about himself. Our second (and last) dog was totally HIS idea. :p He’s just grumpy when he has to pick up after them or they bark while he’s asleep or something.
Also, getting ready. I spend 10000% longer getting ready than he does and he is always like “well I’ll get ready when you are in your third stage.” Yes, he calls them stages. I don’t think I’m that bad! If I want to look good or we’re going out, it’s about an hour and a half, including: shower, hair drying and straightening, makeup, and clothes. (I have extremely thick hair that is getting pretty long).Just because he can get ready in 10 mins doesn’t make me crazy! :p Or so that’s what I tell myself.

Gosh, when I saw this thread, I had to stop & think about it & the answer is–nothing. He doesn’t nag at all. He just kind of goes with the flow.
Wish I could say that about myself.

My husband nags me about my pocketbooks, he says theres no need for that many and that i don’t use them all, which i do. Does he want me to leave the house with 15 purses on my shoulder. His favorite rant is how he has one wallet and it goes with everything. My answer is good for you.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Nice! Is that going to be his gift to you? As in you pick it out?
