Same about shaving in the sink and sometimes shower…little hairs everywhere! Agh!
The other thing that annoyed me when he was single was his bed & bedroom. I mean, it embarrassed me. He insisted on sleeping on a sleeping bag and had this raggedy old blanket. His bedroom was equally bad. He got used to (as a single guy) using these plastic buckets (instead of laundry baskets) to put his dirty clothes in…problem is they are out in the open where you can see them! They are like storage tubs! He tried to do this in our bedroom (he moved in to my place). I don’t mind if he uses it if it’s in the closet, but he insisted it needs to be out for easy access. Had a hard time compromising on that one, but don’t want to be controlling or a nag so let him put it under a chair. It still irks me in a major way.
What else bugs me? He’ll do the dishes but absolutely refuses to clean out the sink, clean the counters, and clean the kitchen floor. I think he figured out washing the dishes doesn’t take as much time as those also very important things. It’s super annoying.
Oh, and he has a clock fetish! Ticking clocks, specifically! It’s like a time bomb is going to go off! He was willing to rig one of them so it had padding in the back and wouldn’t tick so loud…I can still hear it. There is a digital clock on a stereo. I just don’t understand why this won’t do!
My man also calls me dude and bro. I’m not his bro. He usually only says “bro” or “man” when he’s angry with me. It’s my #1 pet peeve. I don’t know how to get him to stop. I tried calling him “woman” and “sis” to which I got no reaction. Grrrrrrr!
Mine does the same “can you google xxx?” Or I have this horoscope app and instead of saying, “can you please send me my horoscope” he just texts: “horoskop”
And that’s the OTHER thing…the inattention to proper grammar and spelling in texts and emails. My SO is a teacher. He KNOWS how to speak/write. It drives me crazy!
I have to say though…I’m so glad I read this post! Made me realize he isn’t totally abnormal. That said the thing I don’t like about this post is that if he ever reads it he will think these things are perfectly acceptable now! *faints*
And all THAT said I love the hell out of that man. He is so funny …handsome, sexy, fun, clever, charismatic and my man…lol I wouldn’t trade him out for any other guy!
I know he could name a ton of things abt me …thinking of the things he puts up with makes me laugh too!
I love this thread…
