Future.Mrs.Stone:  Once when I called my mother and was complaining about all these stupid little ways that Fiance was driving me nuts, she told me, “You can’t change him, you can only change how you react.”  That stuck with me and I find myself saying it to my clients a lot now.  It helps that Fiance is really wonderful in a lot of ways that outweighs his irritating habits, and I know it’s not like he does these things to piss me off, they’re just habits or laziness.  His heart is always in the right place even if his actions aren’t.

He eats and drinks up everything! I buy him snacks and buy my own separate snacks (He buys groceries, but rarely buys snacks even though he eats the hell out of them). He will eat through all of his and then eat mine! He ate one bag of organic tortilla chips I bought in one sitting, that same bag would last me a week. I bought him more than one bag because I know how he is, he ate through those and then opened up and ate most of the bag of my chips that I specifically told him were mine. So now, I hide my snacks lol!

My SO DOES NOT have a sense of urgency. I’m the type of person who likes to get things done and am rather quick about it, while he likes to do EVERYTHING on his own timing. I was cleaning my kitchen when he came over one night and I saw a bug so I screamed and called his name. He probably sat there on the couch for another 30 seconds before he decides to get up and check on me, which all you bee’s who hate bugs knows is a long time when your in a crisis like that! Also, when we’re in the car and he’s turning up the volume on the radio, he will keep his hand on the knob for like a whole minute, when it only takes two seconds to change the volume. I just sit there glaring at his hand the whole time. Lol, I love him but I have got to put some pep in his step before we take things to the next level.

these are hilarious! I find myself nodding because my dh does some of these too.

I think the thing that drives me the craziest is that he has a bad memory and I have an extremely good memory. He uses Outlook at work for every single thing and I don’t htink he knows what day it is until he has logged in to take a look 🙂 If I want him to do something, I have to email him to put it on his calendar, or text him…. otherwise it won’t happen.

Seriously, there have been times that I have said, ‘ hon, would you stop by the store and pick up some milk on the way home from work?’ he will then say, ’email it to me’ or ‘text me’. So…. we have a grocery list on the side of the fridge which I just hand to him and say ‘here, look, it says milk, can you get that?’ so again he says, ‘just email me at work’…  I always look at him like he’s nuts and say, ‘ can’t you just take the list? and put it in your wallet? or your pocket?’ … but NO.

I drew the line when he asked me to remind him when mothers day is. No, buddy… it’s on the calendar. I am sure as hell not going to remind you to get me a present. Our kids are old enough now too that they are able to remind him…. but left to his own devices, he would forget his own name if someone didn’t text him to tell him what it was.

we have school aged kids, and it’s not uncommon to have other kids over for playdates at our place. HE NEVER remembers the names of the other kids, or how we know them (eg. the kids play on our kid’s soccer team, or they are in the same class at school), especially if the kids have been at our place before, or if I am friends with the moms.
