Does anyone else’s SO have this issue? They are looking for something (wallet, hat, belt, socks etc.) and some how just can’t seem to LOOK for it? It’s like if it’s not where it normally is it’s lost forever! It’s getting ridiculous! I have even tested Jason with this… he was looking for his hat, I found it under a shirt in the dirty laundry… he put it on the counter in the kitchen I covered it with a dish towel. AND HE COULDN’T FIND IT! Seriously. It’s like he’s blind. I’m getting sick of having to find EVERYTHING for him.
He couldn’t find his belt a little bit ago when he was getting ready to go to work… I’m eating a snack on the couch and he comes up and says “can you help me find my belt?” So I get all pissy because I always have to interupt what I’m doing to help him find his sh*t, and I say “find it yourself. it’s probably in plain sight!” and he gets PISSED and starts complaining about how he just needs help! So I finally get up and walk into the bedroom and IT’S HANGING ON THE CLOSET DOOR KNOB! SERIOUSLY!? you couldn’t see that? it was right next to your side of the bed. you walked past it more than once this morning…
UGH! Is anyone elses SO this blind when it comes to finding things? How do you handle/deal with it? Because I did not sign up to wait on him like he’s 2!

Haha I can’t believe he couldn’t find a hat that was covered by a towel! My husband loses a lot of things but usually they are places where neither of us can find it for a while!

yea, I did it as a joke thinking he’ll be like “how did that happen?” but no… he walks into the kitchen and goes “where’s my hat?! it was right here!” WOOOW.
it’s so annoying!

hahaha too funny!
My Fiance will take out his contacts, THEN look for his glasses! They’ll be like right in front of him and he can’t find them…then as he’s tearing up the room/bathroom looking for them, they inevitably go flying or are buried under pile of his stuff…this literally happens 4x a week 🙂

I think it’s a guy thing since they’re usually momma’s boy and their mom’s always wanted to “take care” of them. Talk about a bad habit!

My fiance was supposed to go to the shooting range with his best friend yesterday. He called me while I was at work and said, “Do you know where my ammo is? It’s all missing.” It turned out it was right where he left it, but covered by a shirt.

oh wow this is hilarious haha. My guy doesn’t have that problem I don’t think… although he almost never loses things so I guess he also doesn’t have to look all that often. I think a lot of guys have weird quirks though.

I could have written this post!!! My Fiance does this with EVERYTHING! Just yesterday he and I were searching the house looking for his keys and it turned out they were IN. HIS. POCKET.
I feel your pain…

My Fiance does this. It’s ridiculous. The worst is when he’s looking for something in the fridge. He’ll stare in and ask me “Where’s the *item*?” and he won’t actually move anything or look behind anything. I’ll say “it’s in there!” and he’ll say “I can’t see it”. Then I will walk over, move the milk or whatever, and there it is!!! I find it very annoying!!! My dad does this too, so I totally think it’s a guy thing.

*groan* I’m with you on this one – I don’t know if it makes it worse or not that my husband readily admits to having this problem, since he does nothing to rectify it. It reminds me of this cartoon.

haha that is awesome! and so true!
The worst is when he doesn’t even look and he’s like “can you find me some clean boxers and an undershirt I don’t have any in here?” and they are seriously just in his drawer which he didn’t even bother looking in because he never thinks he has clean clothes!

@sweetadelineXO – I too am afflicted by this disease. Two nights ago I couldn’t find my passport (in my defense we just moved and everything was still in boxes <except we moved 6 weeks ago and I should probably be unpacked by now>) for our cruise next month. To his wonderful self I credit minimal eye-rolling, muttering under breath, and total support of my oblivious nature.
OP – we.. just kind of can’t help it. I will tell you, if you come up with an organization system (IE a key holder by the front door so you NEVER have to look for keys) it might help. I know it does for me. I can follow an organizational system…. just not make one.
