    I’m definitely the WORST about not putting the toothpaste cap back on… and I’m not much help with bed making.  It’s the socks in the living room that make me most crazy!  I’ve always wondered why my fiance does that!

    My SO is so, so good about most of these things. Actually, he’s better than I am!

    On the subject of ironing — he actually irons his work clothes every morning, while I have ironed exactly one time in my life. I suppose he’s guilty of the clothes on the bedroom floor, or in other random places, once in a while…but so am I. :-/

    *For the record, the whole "loose hairs all over the shower curtain/in the shower drain" thing drives me nuts.  I’ve lived with female roommates who didn’t clean out the drain after showering (something I was raised to do) and it’s so gross when I’ve had to clean up someone else’s hair! Ew ew!

    Love this survey, especially the bonus points questions!  He argues that the toilet seat stays up since I leave it down, lol.  He’s really good at leaving clothes actually on the bathroom floor and in random corners…he says it’s because he doesn’t want to wake me up to put them in the hamper in our room, although he’ll wake me up to say goodbye, lol.  His socks AND shoes often end up in the middle of the family room floor, too.  Oh and the dishes, we are both guilty of all that and take turns picking up after each other.  The hair thing, I actually try to prevent them from going down the drain so always take them out after I’m done showering, although, hairs still end up everywhere around the house…his favorite thing!

    Wow, 6/10. Not too shabby! Although, Mr. Powder Puff is VERY sporadic about the toilet seat thing. Sometimes he leaves it up, sometimes he puts it back down, depending on which way the wind is blowing that day.

    I think it’s HILARIOUS that you put the sock in the living room thing on there. The mister does that all the time and it drives me crazy!

    Only 1, and only sort of.  The bed thing — but I’m usually the last one out of bed, and I don’t make the bed either, so you can’t really put that one on him.

    We did have a bit of conflict about the toilet seat thing when I first moved in.  It really, really drove me crazy, and he just didn’t see the big deal.  But then he read an article that mentioned how far bacteria can fly when you flush an open toilet, mentally calculated the distance to our toothbrushes on the bathroom counter … and has closed it before flushing ever since!!

    Wow, 5/10, not as bad as I thought.  However, we don’t iron, so that knocked out 2.

    Wow… I never thought about this, but my SO (a man) doesn’t do ANY of those things.  I do a couple (apparently I’m the messy one in the relationship).  

    Mr. Bee, maybe you could add an option for "none of the above"?  I tried to vote but it wouldn’t let me since I hadn’t selected anything.

    Mr Peng happily made "None of the above"… but if this poll were for ME instead, I think I’d check every one except leave the toilet seat up and the iron on.

    Ahhahaha… I totally put my hair on the wall… so it doesn’t go down the drain!  You should thank your wife for this.

    Holy shit.  I just showed this poll to Mr. Peng and thanked my lucky stars.  So far, I’m the only "none of the above" vote!

    Lol, yeah you probably should Pengy!  I know what you mean about the hair, I do the same thing cuz if you let it get in the drain it’s not pretty.  They think we are gross, but it’s really that we are smart!

    5/10. I think I have more bad habits than him though. The best thing about him is that he will do the laundry without me asking AND he will fold the clothes too without me asking/prompting him. AND he never ever leaves the toilet seat up. =o)
