Just a fun vent.
Mine is that Fiance thinks that I magically know how to do a bunch of things that he doesn’t, and therefore I should do them/give him step by step instructions on how to do it. I’ll clean out the dishwasher traps or take off the bottom of the vacuum to unclog it, cook a new meal, or replace the cable on the garage door. And the next time that something needs to be done he’s like “well you just know how to do it”. No, I don’t. I google that s**t and figure it out. You can too. The funny thing is that he is more than willing to cook me dinner, for instance, but then will ask me every 2 minutes what to do. Look up a recipe, that’s what you should do.
Sigh. Drives me bonkers. Still love ’em.

Hahaha this is hysterical, sounds like my Fiance.
Mine thinks I know where all of his things are, AT ALL TIMES. Every damn day it’s, “Hey babe… where’s my phone, shoes, watch, wallet, etc.?” like, what?! I have no idea, it’s not my stuff to keep track of! Drives me crazy. And his response when I catch an attitude is always, “but you know everything so….” adding fuel to the fire buddy. Lol

Not put stuff where it’s supposed to go. Finished your water that was in a glass? Put the glass in a sink. Finished your Gatorade? Put the empty bottle in the recycling. Had a snack? Put the trash in the TRASH CAN. OMG. Kills me every time.

Sometimes when Darling Husband turns off the shower, he just turns the water off and not the actual shower part. So when I go to shower and lean in to turn it on, I get blasted with cold water on the back of my head. I don’t wash my hair every shower, so it ticks me off! I’ve asked him a few times to not do this, and it still happens. I asked him this weekend if he is still doing it to get some secret chuckle out of knowing it drives me nuts. lol
Also, whenever I mention his clothes that didn’t quite make it into the hamper, they are apparently clean and that’s his excuse for them being right beside the basket. SMH. lol

Two things come to mind!
One is he eats like a child, I have to hide veggies in his food, and he is SO picky! It makes it hard to cook anything because there are only like 10 recipes he will eat.
The other thing is he apparently doesn’t know how to pee in the toilet or wipe it off the floor when he misses! Between him and our toddler, I have to clean around the toilet multiple times a day to keep it from puddling up! It’s so gross!

Anytime we go anywhere, we will be just about to walk through the door when he remembers one more thing he needs to do before we leave. It drives me insane!

MrsMore14: YES omg this is what I was going to write! He has a beer after work? He puts it in the sink, not the recycling (they are right beside eachother, how hard is that to do?!)
MissCountryGirl727: And you mentioned the other one! The clothes on the ground, BESIDE the hamper, because they are “clean.” How hard is it to fold a pair of pants and put it back on the shelf?? lol. Even his dirty clothes don’t make it in the hamper, at this point I’m wondering why we even own one haha

Oh my gosh. My number one thing is the laundry. So many things about the laundry. First, when he does laundry he ONLY puts in his things. He literally picks through and doesn’t wash mine. Hes always like “I need work clothes!” But he doesn’t do full loads (another pet peeve, lol) so, just put my damn clothes in. I NEED WORK CLOTHES, TOO! This has actually gotten better but he still does it once in a while. And then when said laundry is finished he never puts it away. It will literally sit for two weeks until our cleaning lady comes and I put it in the laundry room so it isn’t in her way. And then it stays there until he needs something and remembers he has missing laundry. Put your damn clothes away, omg! And then, he gets home after I’m asleep and he always takes his clothes off and leaves them on the floor like 2 ft away from the hamper. Whyyyy? He says he’s going to wear them again the next day (he only wears them during the drive, but he changes into a uniform for actual work), but c’mon buddy. You’re gonna wear those underwear tomorrow? And also, if you always wear the same clothes everyday like you claim, and also wear a uniform 4 days a week, WHY DO YOU HAVE SO MUCH LAUNDRY?!
anywho, that was a much longer rant than intended. Lol.

allibeebee: Same here. We apparently just own the basket to transport clothes to the washer. lol He also leaves clean clothes elsewhere…the back of the couch, the kitchen table, then complains that the cat laid on it and it’s covered in cat hair. Well guess where the cat doesn’t lay? The dresser and the closet! lol

MrsMore14: LOL, yes! Why does trash never go into the trash can? It always goes on the counter (which is TINY) and then, if I haven’t already gotten to it, gets cleaned up in one fell swoop. But I’ve always already gotten to it. The trash, compost, recycling… all of it ends up on the counter.
He also loves to sing. All the time. We’ll be in the middle of a freaking conversation and he’ll start singing. Once, he gave me shit about opening up my laptop while we were talking, and I responded, “Oh, I’m sorry, is this not condusive to good conversation?”
LOL I’m thinking of so many things! When I’m sick or not feeling well, he’ll give me about 5 minutes of sympathy before he reverts to our normal, teasing relationship. Then he complains when I do the same thing to him. But, especially, when I give him too much sympathy or let him stew when he’s feeling sorry for himself, he just sinks into it. When I tease him and give him a hard time, he laughs and gets more energy. But he still complains that I’m mean to him!
And of course, none of these things really bother me except on a superficial level. He’s the best partner I could ever have asked for.

MrsFiveOh: You just made me laugh so hard because I relate to everything in your post! 😛 What is up with guys and laundry?? Haha

Mine is not much messier than I am, though he’s also good at dropping his clothes right next to the hamper I bought for him and him alone.
His biggest problem is not listening. I mean I can make him look at me directly and repeat back if it’s important no problem, and he does remember some things pretty unexpectedly. But in general I talk a lot and he tunes me out. The other night I was calling random movie titles to him that were available on Amazon and included “ooh they have Talladega Nights” (eye roll, we don’t care for Will). Twenty minues later he came downstairs and randomly said “Talladega” and had no idea why it was in his head until I explained that he’s half-heard me. It’s something I’ve adjusted to and only occasionally get really bothered by now, thank goodness.

OMG the not peeing IN the toilet kills me, like there shold not be yellow anywhere on the floor, learn how to aim or clean up after yourself like a big boy! I now hand him the rag and the cleaner to wipe it all up when it get’s bad.
He used to be much more helpful with laundry and picking up in general but he’s messed up a few of my things and I get frustrated when he puts something in a weird place. Now he’ll only do his own laundry or do what he’s told to clean up becuase he apparently “doesn’t know how to do it right” since he got fussed at. You would think that would mean he would learn how to do it right but no, it’s now an excuse to be lazy and play video games every waking minute he’s at home…

crystal0410: My husband does this also, usually asks before he’s even looked. Madening!
Also he leaves his shoes/clothes exactly where he decides to take them off… its like the 2nd coming and I got left behind. My fav are his huge work boots right inside of the door so that I just about fall everytime I come home OR go to the bathroom. He doesnt get it, thats the place he took them off, that’s where they should stay right? (Not the THREE shoe bins we have scattered around the house!)
