I can be horrible about it when I’m crabby already.  I know I am, and it’s usually little stuff. So little, that I can’t even think of an example right now.  My poor Mr. M.  When I know I’m in a crabby mood, I’ve been trying to stop myself before saying it and deciding if it’s actually something warranted.  Maybe rephrase it in my head before I say it.  It’s helped…..some.

thats fabulous that you have noticed this and are trying to rectify it, I’m sure my Fiance thinks I’m the only one who nags but he is just as bad, and doesn’t realise.

Mr. Peng and I are both HUGE nags! It’s funny because I’m a classic nagger “PUHLEEEESSSEEEE do this… do this now pleaaaasssseeeee” and Mr. Peng is more of a creative nagger “Hmm… this dog doesn’t appear to be feeding herself” or “You’re doign an excellent job with this whole not-showering experiment…”

Either way, we communicate via nagging. Because it’s pretty equal, and we try to keep it funny, it seems to be ok. 🙂

Lol! It sounds like Mr. Peng is more of a passive-aggressive nagger.


I don’t think I nag, but if I do, it’s definitely the p-a nag with a side of whine. I’m also bad about the dirty-look-throwing.

I try not to but sometimes it’s really hard (like when a sink full of dirty dishes has been sitting there for 3 days straight!)…Must work on being better about that….

I can’t say I never nag (I totally nag him about taking his meds and taking care of himself!) but other than that I just don’t do it.  Although, I don’t think that is a completely accurate statement either . . . lemme essplain.  I don’t nag him to do things for me.  If I have asked him to do something and he hasn’t done it, then I just do it myself.  Usually, he will come running over to help, and the task gets accomplished.  So, technically, it could be p-a nagging, but I really don’t do it to *make* him do something.  I just have timelines in my head, and I just can’t concentrate when I know something needs to get done . . . it’s really just for my own piece of mind!

I used to be more of a nag but ever since we bought a house, Darling Husband is now more of a nag!  Why does this look like this?  When are we getting new nightstands?  You don’t like to dust, do you?  Big nag!

lol, I don’t have to nag to get the broken things fixed.  I just start the chore, and when I start screwing it up royally, he will swoop in on the white horse and finish it. (Like I took apart the leaking pipe, and can’t remember how to put it together again)WinkThen it gets fixed right and its done right away.  Of course I’ve been banned from the tools and not allowed to mow the lawn (I hit a few things and the last time was when I carried the gas tank back up to the garage and I explained that this had to be a sign from God that I shouldn’t be on a riding lawn mower…he finally believed!!)

R and I both nag each other! We’ve turned it into a joke. If one of us is doing it, the other just smiles at them until we both laugh. It usually works, but without coffee it sometimes makes us really angry… then again, what doesn’t make a person angry without coffee?

I am definatly the nagger… I don’t recall my FH really ever nagging at me, maybe when I am running late . . . he hates that.

Proverbs 27:15 “A nagging spouse is like the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet..”

This challenges me! lol.   no one likes a drippy faucet!

I am terrible, I nag all the time and I don’t know how to stop it!  I’d love to know the name of the book you read Mr. Bee.

Really the only thing I nag about is being late. Because he does it all the time. And it’s seriously my biggest pet peeve because I’m ALWAYS early.
