He chews with his mouth open sometimes… Even in public, he’s gotten much, much better about it though.

He doesn’t let the towels dry all the way… getting out of a nice hot bath and drying off with a cold, damp towel… Or even better a dry, stiff towel.

If he wakes up in the middle of the night or has to wake up before me in the morning he seems to make as much noise as humanly possible and flops around like a fish out of water in the bed. It drives me insane.

I will marry him even though…

– he has goggles on that prevent him from seeing any mess on the counter, bedroom floor, or otherwise. 

– he takes the longest showers of anyone I know because it is his “relaxing time”, even if we are running late

– he doesn’t appreciate my “to do” lists even though I think they are fantastic

– nothing makes him laugh harder than Howard Stern (I still don’t get that one)

So this is a local/regional thing- so I know I am the odd one out.  But DH has a habit of saying:

“I’m done my project”, not “I’m done WITH my project”

Basically he leaves out the “with”- which is a vital part of the sentence IMO.  He, and all of our friends who grew up here (and even my child now) speak this way and it drives me NUTS.

He doesn’t rinse the sink after brushing his teeth, leaving the gross toothpaste spit sitting there.  It takes two seconds to rinse it out, but instead he lets it dry and then it’s hard to clean.

@stardustintheeyes:  THIIIIIIS!!!!  I swear, I have been the one to replace the last 50 or so rolls of toilet tissue.

 

It’s a tie between the above issue and his spelling/grammar/pronunciation.  I’m kind of a grammar freak, so when he mispronounces or misspells a word or anything like that, I cringe.  He’s dyslexic, so I know he has trouble sometimes, but it still makes me cringe.

ETA:  Any of these make me consider whether or not I should keep someone in my life.  Jokingly, of course.

@stardustintheeyes:  Omg! I bet he never did that again! Fiance has quoted me several times saying, “You hate me, don’t you?” and “You are ruining my life!”

 

I’m a little over-dramatic… I hope his are NEVER that bad!

his hands and elbows are constanly ashy… to the point where one of the women at his job gave him a bottle of lotion. It drives me nuts!! I am always giving him lotion.

@megz06:  O.M.G. I may be engaged to your husband. With my Fiance it’s not implying but…

Me: Got any preferences for dinner?

Fiance: Do YOU?

Me: I asked you first. o_o

Fiance: No, I don’t really. Got any ideas?

Me: Hmmm. Spaghetti maybe or grilled salmon? Which do you want?

Fiance: Which one do YOU want?

Me: OMFG!! Just give me a freaking answer! 

 

A close second reason for not being able to marry him is piling up the dirty clothes around the hamper. It’s on his side of the room and right next to the door. WTF.

The TP roll thing Oh ehm freaking gee…  If I see one more tp roll on the back of the toliet and/or on top of the roll I am going to freak out.  (Ok, but I don’t and I sigh and life moves on, BUT STILL).

He’s a huge clutter bug.  As in, little piles of clutter everywhere.  I am the OCD wipe everything down and have everything organized person.  He at least acknowledges it and has to his credit been a lot better about having less of it in the house. 🙂

I know there are things I do that drive him batty, too, so I’m not all sweetness and perfection myself.  Ahem. 😉
