He never irons his work clothes. So unless I’m there to do it, he goes to work with wrinkly stuff. His co-worker made a crack about how they can tell whenever I’m in town because he doesn’t look like he just pulled his dress shirt out of the bottom of the closet. lol yuck. I hate sloppy dressers.

Um, he never cleans his fridge or his kitchen floor. I do it when I visit.

He can’t stay in bed once he wakes up! I’d love to lounge in bed & have a lazy Saturday with him, but he’s not capable of doing it. There’s only 1 way other than sleep to get him into bed…  lol

Funny board! 

Corgitale:  That’s funny about him being a label whore ’cause my Fi has tendencies too, but it doesn’t bother me so much because I’ve been known to be one too!

Ejs:  The spitting out the food…eewww!!  i just got a visual!  Don’t you lose your appetite when he does that!?  But I guess he’s willing to try new things right?

What drives me nuts about Fi:  his patience!  HE HAS NONE!!

@jingle, yeah, it’s pretty gross but i have a stomach of steel; i can eat around ANYTHING and not get grossed out. I get so embarassed tho! It’s not like he throws it up, he just sort of spits it out into a napkin all chewed up. I guess I do the same with a fatty piece of beef. But he is pretty good about taking the tiniest bites now. It was my fault–i made him stuff the whole california roll piece in his mouth. The look on his face was pretty priceless tho, i’m not gonna lie.

@50- it actually doesn’t bother me, unless i’m trying to watch tv. It is worst when he is on his back and then I just ask him to roll over. Even on his side he snores but I’m used to it. I got a pug that slept with me when I was 13, and it totally got me used to the snoring. The pug snored so loudly that it would wake my mom up in her room, through 2 closed doors. Me? Never woke up haha. I used to always joke that the dog was training me for marriage, turns out I was right 🙂

Ejs: a california rol?!?  I’m such a sushi lover, it just breaks my heart.  They’re not even bad! I take it he hasn’t tried any other rolls?!  How about a shrimp tempura roll, those are always good for beginners!

@jingle, yep, a california roll was too gross and weird for him! He says it’s a texture thing. The seaweed, the rice, the whole “not eating with a fork/spoon” thing, the avocado….the dude hates it all. I always chow down on sushi and he stares at me kinda weird and picks at his chicken teriyaki.

It’s so sad. This is what I get for being part asian and marrying me a polish boy, LOL.

He makes this weird noise… it’s like half a half fart/half squeak sound and I hate it and he knows it so he does it all the time.

He leaves all his little hairs in the sink after he shaves.

He’ll come into the bathroom when I’m trying to get ready and take up the whole freakin mirror. He doesn’t even try to stand to one side. His excuse is that he’ll just take a minute but when I’m in my concentrating/trying to put on my eyeliner/put in contacts/etc mode it drives me crazy that I have to pause just for him. We have a second bathroom, hello!

He constantly takes things out without putting them away.

That’s all. Love you sweetie if you happen to snoop this post!! LOL

Oh man–

1. He is so quiet sometimes. Something monumental will have just happened and I’ll ask him, “What do you think about that?” and…….. silence.

2. He is such an OCD crazo about the dishwasher. I have to ask him if the dishes are dirty or clean since he practically scours them and dips them in acid before he puts them in the dishwasher. Isn’t that what the dishwasher is for? WASHING? Why do they have to be clean beforehand?

3. Leaving dishes all over the house, like empty glasses on the coffee table.

4. He SCREECHES to a halt at the sight of a yellow light a mile away. I’m gunning it to the floor trying to make it before it turns all the way red, and he is stopping when it is still green!

 

Lol, gosh those are such little things compared to some of my issues with other boyfriends. I’m so lucky!

oh, and I also hate when hubby takes a shower and he doesnt turn the shower part off (you know, so it’s still coming from the shower and not the nozel thing?) Because of the way he likes to angle it (it hit the back wall), I end up getting water all over my arm, and it starts to flood a bit down the wall over onto the floor. Hate that lol

I thought of more!

his driving. He drives like a grandpa. He stops at every yellow light even if that means he has to slam on the brakes to do so (He is getting better about this after several fights). He is totally uncomfortable driving in city conditions, despite the fact he’s lived here for 5 years (so he hates driving down 1 ways with cars parked on both sides, hates parallel parking, hates backing into spaces etc). 

this is an old one… but he used to have a really bad habit of mentioning how much everything costs. This goes along with being the label whore i think. But, when we were first dating he would always say stuff like “oh yea my mom got me this coat for christmas. it is so nice, cashmere, it cost her XXX!” or “I just got this awesome ralph lauren comforter for $350” or something. I finally told him flat out– it makes you sound like an jerk if you go around telling everyone how much you spent on stuff. He has not done it in a VERY long time, thank goodness. 

For all of his spendiness when it comes to clothes/furnishings etc, he is CHEAP when it comes to food. He will go spend $100 on a shirt without blinking, the bitch to me for half an hour about the price of bread at the grocery store. It boils down to the fact that he doesn’t really value eating and kind of resents that he has to do it to live (total opposite from me– I love eating!). So he gets annoyed at whatever portion of his paycheck he is forced to “waste” on food. He can go a lot of months spending only $50 at the grocery, it is ridiculous. I used to try to “fix” this because I’d feel bad for him that he was eating ramen or something every day… but then I realized he HAS money he just chooses not to spend it so i refuse to feel badly for him haha. We always joke that once we live together and I’m doing the grocery shopping for both of us, he’ll probably gain a ton of weight because he’ll actually be eating 3 proper meals a day!

@ejs – On #1 – My Fiance does this, too, but he is breaking the habit. First I threatened to call off the wedding if he didn’t stop and that didn’t work. Then, I threatened to cut him off in the bedroom if he didn’t stop. His nails are actually growing out and he’s only torn a couple in the last few weeks! THey look so much better and i am giving him manicures now.

lol, reading this totally makes me think of a ton of things. When I ask him a question like “How was your day?” or “What do you want for dinner?” He’ll say “Yes.” Simply because he doesn’t want to talk about it or doesn’t have an opinion. He ashes in the sink, toilet, bathtub. Ugh, being a non-smoker, I find it crazy annoying to get in the shower and see ashes. Luckily they just slide down the drain. And he doesn’t flush if he’s just peed. We have this toilet cleaner thing that makes the water blue so I come in and it’s an ugly shade of green! lol, but these are all so minute.

I feel like I should say what I love about him too. 🙂 I’ve got a cold and last night he came in and snuggled with me and tucked this teddy bear he bought me for Christmas in my arms when he left. lol, sometimes he treats me like a kid but I can’t say I mind.

He doesn’t like to gossip – that’s a bit annoying. =D

Also sometimes I wish that something being important to ME was enough reason for it to be important to him.  Yes, I spent a day making pumpkin pie from scratch for Thanksgiving instead of just running across the street to the store, but making the pie from scratch mattered to ME even though he thought it was stupid.  And people did notice and it was astronomically better than store bought, thankyouverymuchh.
