Anytime Switzerland is mentioned or someone says that something “is a plus” (which happens ALL THE TIME on House Hunters) he says “Well the flag is a big plus!”

 

He used to only say it when the context made sense but now he does it because he knows I hate it.

He thinks he tells me things, but doesn’t. Whether it’s plans or whatever. So we’ve been testing a new rule where he just shoots me a text as soon as he finds out a time, or anytbinf else I’ll need to know AS SOON as he finds out. Otherwise it gets lost in la la land. 

We’re both pretty bad at laundry habits but he does have the terrible trash habit where he never throws things away. Or just leaves them on the counter! Like hello, the trash can is literally right there….

2 things:

1.  If he needs something around the house, he will go out and buy it without looking to see if we already have it.  He especially does this when he is cooking.  Right now we have 3 separate bottles of Worcestershire Sauce.   As if we will be able to use all the Worcestershire Sauce, one tablespoon at a time, over the next decade.   At one point we also had 5 separate 1-pound containers of salt.  At least we use salt almost daily, unlike Worcestershire Sauce.

2.  He sneezes ridiculously loudly.  It makes me jump everytime.  He tries to warn me ahead of time but isn’t always able to.  It’s just crazy.

Man, some of these would drive me up the wall! Fortunately, my husband is very clean, doesn’t pee on the floor (lol!), and cooks/does laundry.

BUT, the things that do bug the heck out of me:

A) He always wakes up before the alarm and isn’t queit about getting out of bed, slamming our bedroom door, and clanking the dishes when getting his coffee. Once he’s up, I’m up because he’s so darn loud! I can’t remember the last time I got to sleep until the alarm actually went off 🙁

B) He’s a talker and he lingers in social situations. His conversations drag out waaaaaay longer than necessary and even if he says we’re leaving, he’ll always strike up another conversation or hang around for another hour. I feel like a child tugging at mom’s arm trying to leave when she won’t stop gabbing to the neighbor.

C) He’s always on the phone. And usually with his brother who he works with. He will literally walk in the door, home from work, where he JUST SAW HIS BROTHER, and they’ll call eachother. What? Why couldn’t you talk when you were face to face??

D) When we have to be somewhere (like dinner at my parents house for example), I plan out what time we’re going to leave so we get there on time. But EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. we get in the car, he says “I just have to stop off and get X,Y,Z first” so we’re always late. I even ask him before hand if we need to stop anywhere or get gas on the way and he magically doesn’t remember until we are in the car and it’s too late.

MelissainNC:  My dad is a loud sneezer. It would stop my heart and immediately make me angry. I know he can’t help it but my god, being startled like that regularly gets old reaaaal quick!

SoonAsYouCan:  Right?  I’ve spilled drinks on myself because he sneezed.  Highly annoying.  Also, like yours, my Fiance is a social creature and will linger all night long talking to complete strangers, not to mention friends!  I sometimes feel like the “bad guy” pulling him away because I’m tired and I want to go home!

Omg, so many things drive me crazy, sometimes I’m amazed I love the guy so much. 

He will throw dirty underware on the floor on his side of the bed, we have hardwood floors so a lot of times they slide under the bed and then we get a smelly pile of undies under the bed, because I’m not a maid and I refuse to pick up his dirty underware off the floor. What blows my mind is he throws dirty undies on the floor, but he will put shirts and pants in the hamper, what makes it weird is, he folds his dress pants all nice and neat before he puts them in the hamper. 

Hes OBBSESSED with clash of clans to the point if me or dd say something to him, he either totally ignores us or does a ‘mm hmm’ simply because he heard a voice, but doesn’t know what we said. I get sick of it so after I get no response I yell his name and when he asks what I said I tell him tough shit, he ignored me and I won’t repeat myself. 

When he corrects dd he snaps his fingers, then says what he needs to say, the snap drives me crazy. I think he thinks it gets DD’s attention, but she couldn’t care less about a finger snap and I think that’s funny. 

When he cleans dd up after supper, he wets down a whole dish towel to wipe her hands and face then either leaves the wet towel in the sink or hangs it over the faucet. Like, wtf, there is a wash cloth right there, no need to wet down a big ass dish towel just to wipe a 2 year olds hands and face.

MrsMore14:  This is mine too! Usually he will bring the bottle/wrapper/other trash all the way into the kitchen, get right next to the trash can… and then set it on the counter instead of just throwing it away!

Some of these are hilarious! Can’t live with them, can’t live without them.

 

Mine can never find anything in the fridge or pantry because if he doesn’t see it within 5 seconds of opening the door and glancing in, I obviously have taken it away and hidden it somewhere. 

He just stands there, staring into the fridge, helplessly calling my name until I come help him find it. 98% of the time, it’s SLIGHTLY tucked behind something else, or on a shelf that’s below his eye level. I tell him to bend his friggin’ knees and he just does an awkward squat and keeps whining. 

And he chews his food like a f***ing baby dinosaur. He thinks it’s acceptable because his mouth is closed, but he chews so aggressively and sloshes it around in his mouth, and breathes so heavily through his nose, it makes me want to judo chop him in the throat. Our house rule is that he’s not allowed to chew until he cranks up the volume on the TV or radio. I love him to bits, but MY GOD.

Reading some of these, I’m very lucky to have a tidy Fiance but it doesnt mean hes any less annoying…

He will walk around the kitchen trying to find something and leave every cupboard door and drawer open before just leaving the room. It’s like his brain doesnt compute that they can be closed just as easily as they opened. Annoying but also painful when he opens a drawer behind me then leaves it wide open for me to crack my hip on!

Im a huge tea drinker and I have half a teaspoon of sugar in my cup. He knows this. However, instead of half filling a teaspoon like a normal human being, he takes literally any spoon he can find, no matter how big it is as he thinks he can guess half a teaspoon himself as hes such a good judge by eye. I can confirm he is not. I think he would rather try and guess using a ladle than just, you know, use a normal teaspoon.

He thinks its hilarious to call me when he’s out and pretend his phone has a bad signal. He stops and starts talking to sound like he’s breaking up and cant comprehend that I can hear the background noise that funnily enough, isnt stopping so I know he’s just being annoying. To him, its a classic that never gets old!

He decides that when I turn over in the night, or wake up to go to the toilet, that I am somehow signalling that I want to have an indepth conversation before I go back to sleep. Never about anything important, just stuff. Stuff that could easily wait until morning and is not remotely interesting at 4am!

Ooh I tell ya, its a good job we love them isn’t it!
