OMG this thread is SO funny!! My boyfriend is super smart and very capable of figuring things out but sometimes i’m like “WUUUUUT?!” One night, I was coming home late and I was so hungry so I asked him to please “put a pot of water on the stove” for me so that when I came home, I could throw the pasta right in. He literally filled the pot up with water and put it on the stove without turning the stove on.

I was like WHY would you not turn the stove on for it to boil?!? and he was like “you just said to put the pot on the stove!” I was so hangry but it was so funny.

once i asked my husband to heat up a pot pie for me, one of the Marie Callendar’s ones that you microwave. He handed it to me… and I’m like… where’s the bottom?? He took it out of the bottom tray thingie BEFORE he put it in the microwave… so it was all soggy and didn’t cook right. I was like… what made you take it out of there???? lol

My husband leaves paper towels EVERYWHERE. I’ll find one bunched up on my vanity, the bed, several in the kitchen… sometimes even right beside the trash can. Some are dry and others are wet. I’m not even sure what the heck he uses them for but he loves to abandon them for me to find.

I’m starting to think he does it on purpose. Lol

Another one – my husband will come home from work, get undressed, and drape his clothes over the couch, a suitcase in the closet, sometimes even our baby’s crib!!! Because “they’re not dirty, they just need to air out.” 

I actually gave in to this nonsense and bought a over-the-door hanger where he can put his clothes to air out instead of all over our home. *eyeroll* It works about 80% of the time.

I can come home and tell you exactly what my husband did while I was gone. What he ate, what he drank, what clothes he’d worn, if he’d brushed his teeth or shaved (oh dear God don’t get me started on the sink stubble he leaves behind after. And then he wants a gold star because he “cleaned up after himself”) or took a shower or was on the computer or what room he was in BECAUSE HE NEVER TURNS LIGHTS OFF…I swear I spend half my day just following him around and picking up his hurricane debris. And he never takes dishes to the kitchen, and if he does, he sits them on the bar instead of just walking the extra 3 feet to the sink πŸ˜‘ I blame it on his ADHD, but dammit, he’s medicated now so wtf??? He’s seriously a slob and I cringe when I think about what this house would look like without me. Lol

Just to tell you the level of disgusting-ness he is…when we were dating, I thought I’d be sweet and clean his truck out. Flipped the drivers seat forward to get behind it, and….maggots. I’ll stop there. 

AND I STILL MARRIED HIM!!! Bless his heart.

slomotion :  I seriously can’t. I choked when I read this. I’m still laughing! 

Like I said, bless their hearts. 

Mine was trying to work on the furnace last night, and I’m standing at the bottom of the attic stairs listening to him beat and bang and cuss. Then I realize he’s also talking to himself. With an Irish accent. And I’m standing down there smiling like it’s adorable instead of INSANE. What is wrong with us??!! I told him he’s gotta stop binging Peaky Blinders. C’mon man, you were born in Kentucky. Get a grip.

danibee5683 :  Omg your water story…lmao.  

I’m probably That Person for this kind of thing.  So when I cook I do tidy up afterwards, put stuff away, pre-wash the dishes, etc.  EXCEPT I routinely leave the dirty cutting board and knife lol.  I know I do it and my husband bless his heart hasn’t said anything about it yet.  I don’t know why I do it either.  It just…doesn’t occur to me at the time, ionno.

I don’t buy the men are from mars/women are from venus thing – I am definitely more from mars than my husband is by the standards in this post haha. HOWEVER there are definitely some areas where he is bafflingly clueless where I am not (and vice versa).

For example, he’s extremely organized in all ways except long term planning. We had a holiday booked for 6 months, but about a week and a half before I mentioned it and he freaked because he’d double booked holidays with one of his employees and messed up the schedule badly. Even though we’d talked about the holiday a number of times before. It didn’t even cross his mind to cross check his work calendar with his own. I generally have to remind him of plans and important dates every other day in the lead up or he’s a total blank.

So many lol my personal favorite was when a bag of frozen corn said cover with water and microwave. He legitimately put the bag of corn..still in the bag…into the microwave covered with water.

xobailey :  haha maybe he does that thing kids used to do in the school toilet where they wet toilet paper and paper towels and throw them at the toilet ceiling where they stick on and dry! Have you notes any wet patches on your ceilings at home? πŸ˜†

My fiance is the one who doesnt turn on the dryer!! I do have to say that hes gotten better about it. 

But he is so gosh darn literal. The other day we were going to a friends house to play board games. I ask him, “babe. Can you pick out a couple of games you would like to bring?” He happily picks out the games he likes. 

We get to our friends house and I ask him, “what games did you pick, dear?” He says, “Pandemic and Exploding Kittens.” I say, “Perfect. Can you grab them please?” *silence* “I put them on the table for you.”

I told him to PICK the games and he put them on the table for ME to bring. πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

We all had a good laugh when we came empty handed. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

My fiancé is actually very neat and clean, so I have no complaints about that. However, there is one thing about him that really gets my goat. He can NEVER finish food from the fridge/cupboard. Like, if he wants ice cream he will take some from the freezer and eat it until there are two spoonfuls left and then put it back. Same with chips, fruit, bread, anything! If there are two slices of bread left he will literally make an open faced p.b.&j with only one slice so that he’s not finishing off the bread. 

And oh boy if he finds out I ate the last two spoonfuls of ice cream!? His jaw hits the floor and he’ll whine for a minute and then remind me about how I “ate all the ice cream” for weeks. 

This is truly evidence that he is from Mars. I will never understand it.

michellelynn9175 :  LOL!! I can also tell what my husband did by his trail of debris. Mostly wrappers … like he will make a hot pocket or something and leave the wrapper and the box and the dirty plate out. Or, since Halloween just passed… he has a weird habit of eating like one bite out of several tiny fun size pieces of candy (we have a lot of candy left), and leaving the rest of the candy, in the wrappers out, wherever. “For later”. Who doesn’t finish a tiny piece of candy?!

the sink stubble, too… he swears he cleans it, but he wdoes not. At All.

still love him though. 

Also, to be fair.. I leave my shoes all over the house and it drives him crazy.
