Probably that he’s a pack rat and never throws anything away.  We have 3 laptops and 3 desktops in our house right now.  Only 3 of them are ever used.  And he has messy stacks of papers and stuff piled all over his desk.

Mostly my pet peeves are not restricted to my Fiance (although he can certainly be guilty on some of these!!)

I have expensive cookware.  And cutlery.  And I expect people to treat my cookware like gold.  I HATE metal utensils on my Calphalon pots.  Don’t scratch my pots and pans.  I HATE when people use the wrong knife to cut something (there’s a reason they make boning knives and paring knives!!!)

My Fiance uses our poultry shears as regular scissors.  This drives me insane!  I don’t want to cut turkey with the same shears you just used to open a new pack of socks!!  EW!

I think I can avoid even dealing with this by just having lots of pairs of really good scissors all over the house.  LOL

Mr Happily takes all the spare change out of his pockets when he gets home from work and puts it on a shelf in the bathroom…even though I put a huge tupperware container in his nightstand for him to throw the change in…it’s silly but I am a neat freak so I have to go into the bathroom & get the change & put it in the dang container every day.

2 things, and they’re somewhat big and somewhat not. He throws *everything* away. That’s fine, if they’re his to throw away! But a lot of times they’re not. Like his future stepmom loaned him a couple of random things (like a roll of masking tape), I told him *repeatedly* "make sure you give those back to her, she wanted them back," and STILL had to stop him when he went to throw them away. If he doesn’t need it, he throws it away, no questions asked. And the weird thing is he’s gotten really pissed at his mom for throwing things of his away, yet he does it too!

The other things is that he just makes crap up to be funny, but it’s NOT funny to me. Conversation goes something like FH- "I was in a coma for a year when I was little, so that’s why I graduated a year later than my twin sister." Me- "Really?" FH- "No not really, why would you believe something like that?" And he does it on little stupid stuff and big random stuff like that. It upsets me because I always feel like an idiot, which I *hate*. He stopped for a long time (honestly not sure if we’d be together now if I hadn’t managed to get him to quit doing it to me back when we first met), but has started again, cause he "forgets" and it’s just "something [he] does." Grr.

We’ve talked about them both, so he’s doing a lot better. But gah! Stop it!

@rnc – too funny…I’ve seriously thought about putting the change container in the bathroom but there’s not really room for it & he’d probably STILL not put the change into it.

Growing up, we always have a separate kitchen towel for drying our hands, for wiping clean dishes and for wiping off the table (which sometimes can be dirty). Having worked as a chef in professional kitchens, you’d think they’d know about sanitary rules, but my hubby uses the same towel for EVERYTHING! He’d wipe the dirty table, and then the sink and the stovetop and then use the same towel to dry off the clean dishes. AAAahhh! I don’t get it!

My fiance is guilty of one of my biggest pet peeves; loud chewing.  Ick. 

Happily, my fiance does the same thing, only he throws his on our sofa table.  I put a cute little jar there that says "Pub Money", but he still just throws it on the table.  ITS INCHES AWAY!!!

And he leaves empty soda bottles around the house.  Like atleast five a day.

Mine is bossy, and is always wondering around the house looking for stuff to put away "into their place"….Mind you, I am not a messy person to live with but he still does this anyway, errrrrr. And I won’t even mention the bossiness.

My biggest pet peeve is that he blows his nose in the sink and shower. Yes i understand it gets washed down but it totally makes my skin crawl.

Mine refuses to open his mail. I don’t know why, but I’ll stack up all the stuff to him on the dining table and it will just sit there until I force him to open it. Yesterday he found out his renter’s insurance was cancelled because he hadn’t bothered to set up the billing to his new bank account. Guess what else was in the pile? Two more notices from the insurance company. You better believe I’ll be in charge of all bills when we’re married, but I told him until then it’s mail fraud for me to open his stuff, so he has to do it himself 🙂

All of my hubby’s bad habits irritate me as much as they did before we got married but it hasn’t magnified just because we’re married. My hubby is so horrible about leaving full drinks downstairs and wasting sodas. I can’t stand walking downstairs and seeing 5 cups of tea and 4 almost full sodas of dr. pepper just wasting away. I can’t stand that he used 3 to 4 different cups a day because I’m the one that does the dishes. I use the same cup all day. For awhile there I was buying the mini bottles or cans of dr. pepper because of him wasting it. I told him when he can start drinking all of his drinks then he could go back to the big boy sodas, lol. He also has a bad habit of not closing any door behind him. He always leaves the door ajar whenever he comes home and always forgets to close the doors to the bedroom and bathroom, which irritates me because our 18 month loves to snatch the toilet plunger whenever he gets the chance. It irritates me even more when he has left the toilet seat up because I freak out about our son playing in the toilet.
