@Happy2bMrs: OMG mine does that too! Just last night I came into the kitchen for some water and every cabinet was open… how do you even do that in a room so small as our kitchen? lol!
I think what drives me up the wall the most is his passiveness/laid backness. I love it about him overall, but there are times when I just want to know what he thinks/wants rather than have him say, “I don’t know, it’s up to you” or “whatever you want”. Arg!

ohhh wow, these are fun!!
Let’s see…the thing that sticks out most to me is the way Fiance leave beer/pint glasses sitting around on the coffee table, nightstand, or other end table. These are not your average pint glasses. Fiance is a craft beer enthusiast. He love all types of beer and loves to try new and different beers. He also homebrews his own beer. Let me make this clear: I HATE BEER. I despise it, and no amount of cajoling or bribery could make me take even the tiniest sip.
So…these glasses. They are left with a tiny ring of beer residue in the bottom. NO big deal, right? Well, if you’re husband/boyfriend/finace is drinking hoppy, dark, or otherwise “strong’ beers, you can identify with this…THEY SMELL SO STRONG. you can’t imagine how strong. and if you HATE the smell of beer, this isn’t pleasant. So, i’ll be sitting on the couch minding my own business, reading and all the sudden i’m like “omg…wtf is that smell…beer…where the hell is it coming from” and lo and behold, a pint glass from last night is emanating this overpowing smell of hops, yeast, whatever else disgusting beer ingredients my way. I HATE IT.
He also leaves bottle caps every where. He’ll open a beer, pour it, and rinse out his bottle for recycling or to use to bottle his homebrew…but the caps. Dear god the caps are EVERYWHERE. Just throw the damn things away!!
Then, sleeping. He is 6’1″ and a soccer player. I am 5’2 and far shorter than he is, but he loves to spoon me and drape his GIANT HEAVY leg over mine and I feel claustrophobic and pinned down. He doesn’t understand that his 5489 pound hairy man leg on mine under a down comforter is a) uncomfortable b) hot, and c) heavy as hell!!
I could go on…but we all get the point 🙂

@WaitingBee: So funny about the dishes!! Another gripe…my Fiance hoardes our tupperware. He’ll bring leftovers for lunch in tupperware containers, and then NEVER BRINGS THEM BACK TO ME. They are in his work bag, his lunch box, his trunk, his backseat, you name it. Sometimes he even kidnaps our cutlery and I’ll open his lunchbox and think “well, here are two pieces of tupperware I could have used last night. Oh, two-week old broccoli pasta leftovers? That’s going to be super fun to open. O, AND THREE FORKS, REALLY??” soooo annoying. He also will forget that he’s brough condiments for breakfasts or lunches at work. He’s ruined/left cream cheese, mayo, salad dressing, etc in his bags and we’ve had to throw them out because he’s just been toting them back and forth to work for a week without refridgeration. Just return the tupperware to me, it’s not that hard!

@MrsDrRose612: Bahaha, I’m the tupperware hoarder in our family. I’ve got about 8 stacked under my work desk right now that I should probably bring home… lol.

@MissCalifornia:at least you probably rinse them!! he doesn’t even do that…I sometimes have to talk myself into opening them when I FINALLY get them back because I know it’s going to be terrible!

@MrsDrRose612: I get you on the bed thing. I will purposely throw the covers off my body if I’m hot and my Fiance, trying to be a courteous gentleman, will think the covers fell off, put them back over me, and then sleep while hugging me and throwing a leg over me.
He’s 5’10” and I’m 5’3″ so the weight difference isn’t that bad but it’s still suffocating. I just push him and then roll over so he’ll let go of me and take the covers off again.
I love to cuddle, but not while I’m trying to sleep.
Oh yeah, one other thing. He likes to wash dishes for me (in fact if I wash dishes, he’ll notice and actually apologize, even though I say it’s no big deal) but h won’t ring out the sponge. That thing gets pretty rancid after a while of old dish water soaking it.

He repetes everything, about 8 times. Like we will be on a totally different converstaion and he will go ” what i was saying was……………. yada yada yada”…
Me: we’ve talked about this allready.
” oh, i forgot”

I really enjoyed reading all these comments! Although I am little disturbed because I found myself saying “I do that too!” MORE than I said “He does that too!” …. I leave my glasses on the dinner or coffee table, I leave dirty clothes right beside the hamper rather than in it, I fall asleep within 2 minutes of laying down, I leave the closet doors open (I don’t leave kitchen cabinets open though)…I guess I am more quirky/annoying than my FI!
That said, I can come up with a nice list of what my Fiance does to drive me equally crazy: He takes so long to put on shoes with laces! He takes off his shoes without undoing the laces, but then when he goes to put his shoes on he unties the laces. I don’t know why he wouldn’t just untie them as he takes them off.
He doesn’t like to throw anything out – he hasn’t managed yet to part with a broken corkscrew and many old/holey shirts and socks.
He’s not the best cleaner (his mom did everything) – When I ask him to wipe down the counter, he’ll just pass a towel over it in a straight line…then I have to ask him to bend down eye level so he can see just how many crumbs are on the counter and he says that “doesn’t see any” – He also Can Not clean a mirror nicely. Same with the counter, just a quick wipe and thinks it done, but I go in and see so many water and flossing spats on the mirror. He just says “I tried, it doesn’t come out”. So I have go in there with my elbow greese and clean it properly.

He brings his beer bottles upstairs. He knows we go to bed around the same time everynight- well if he hasn’t finished, instead of staying downstairs to finish the beer he just brings it upstairs and that is where it stays. Sometimes on his night side table, sometimes in the master bathroom. I’m pregnant so I know I’m not drinking beer and leaving the bottles upstairs- but I tend to be the one who picks up the beer bottles and brings them downstairs.
He has a hard time recycling. He will throw bottles, cans, plastic in the garbage. When I tell him he can’t do that- he shruggs it off with an oh well. Then when I go out to the giant recycling bin in the garage I find that he has put garbage in it. I will ask- why are their paper towels in here- his response” They are made of paper- they can be recycled.” Also beer caps thrown in “They are made of metal and they can be recycled.” Uggghhh- so frustrating!

Oooh! Great thread! My fiance leaves his shoes under the tables, in the middle of the carpets, by the door, everywhere! I always trip on them!!!!
Also, he is almost IMPOSSIBLE to wake up on weekends (especially when we have to be somewhere! haha!)

Oh I have another one. Whenever I start cleaning something, like say the litter box, Fiance will come up behind me and be like “oh I can do that, let me take over” which sounds great and all except I am doing said task because he was supposed to do it in the first place, but forgot again, so him offering to take over once I have started to do said task drives me mad.

@MrsDrRose612: Oh gross! Yeah for the most part I remember to do it, usually right after I eat at work. I have found a couple with condiments that were rather… horrifying.
