What annoying things does your DH/DW do?

So what does your DH or DW do that totally annoys you?

i have a few:

1. When DH opens a can of cashews or peanuts (or anything of that nature) he peels the foil half way and then LEAVES THE FOIL COVER ON. WHY?

2. DH will go to a store (fruit market, etc) and buy the most random things (that we don't need) and will not call and say "do you need something from the market".  Today he came home with fresh mozzarella and kiwis. Why? An hour later I had to go to the same market because we were low on milk and juice.  

3. He leaves crumbs in the butter. Ugh.

Other than that, he is pretty great, but the little things can drive you mad after a while.

Re: What annoying things does your DH/DW do?

  • His bathroom is in the basement. The washer & dryer and laundry baskets are right outside the door. Think he can get his shiit from the bathroom to the laundry area? Never.

  • He brings his button down dress shirts into the bathroom in the AM to get dressed post shower. And never remembers to take the wire hangers out with him so there's always one hanging from our towel bar. I'll boycott removing them and then there will just be 4 or 5 clanging around on there by the end of the week.

    Also, he doesn't replace TP rolls. Will leave the cardboard roll empty on there.

    He  makes this throat clearing noise that makes me want to jump from the nearest bridge. And he watches stupid movies movies on the hhallmark channel.

  • DH and I annoy each other with the tp. He is the only one that brings new rolls into the bathroom, but he never puts them on the holder or throws away the empty tubes. I am the only one that puts the tp on the holder and throws the tubes away. We have one of those stands in the master that holds 6 rolls. Toilet paper is a team effort around here. lol

  • Dh will rinse his dish off but will not out it into the dishwasher. I end up with a sink full of well rinsed dishes and an empty dishwasher.

    I know it's because he doesn't want to out away the clean dishes that are sitting in the dishwasher.

    He also leaves his dirty clothes at the end of the bed. He undresses and crawls into bed and they never make it to the hamper.

    Once I lashed out at him about it and he said "Look, for a straight guy this is about as good as it gets! I'm trying!"
  • Puts the milk back in the fridge when there is maybe an effing tablespoon of milk left in the entire carton. 

    Puts dirty dishes on top of the counter above the dish washer.... Which is empty anyway.

    Turns off all lights everywhere so the entire house will be dark except for the room we are in. I hate it.

  • DH chomps his teeth in his sleep. His dentist claims there's no damage so he says it can't be that bad. Really dentist?? Do you get woken up every night by the sound of nails on a chalkboard? Didn't think so.

    ETA; when he opens a bag of chips or crackers, etc. he rips it open with his teeth. There's no need! Use your hands or scissors!

  • He will start talking about something we had a conversation about hours or days ago, as if we were JUST talking about it, and act annoyed when I'm confused.  He'll go, "So I just told her there's no way it can happen in two days." in the middle of talking about something else. Who is her? What is it?!

    He will start talking when it is impossible to hear him, like when I'm washing dishes in another room, or running the blow dryer. Then he will be cranky if I ask him to repeat himself.

    He will start a long conversation right AFTER I tell him that I'm going to go somewhere else. I will be like, "I'm going to the restroom," and he will say, "Hey, do you remember that time when..."

     

    His conversational habits seem to bother me a lot. 

  • Whine about changing a diaper.

    My H is the opposite. He can never turn OFF a light. If he is the last one to leave the house in the AM, I will get home from work to find bedroom lights left on, closet light on, etc.

    Oops. Sorry. You're apparently married to me.

     The biggest one is she doesn't put caps back on or screw things on tight. This can make things like toothpaste have that great crust on the outside. It can mean if you pick something up by the cap, it splatters. I've learned to adapt, and she's gotten better.

     

    There's a bunch of other little stuff. Like planning an ambitious meal, then getting stressed out she "has" to cook on weeknights. I realize she wants to give DS good food, but yeah.

    OP, I leave the foil cover on containers, and it drives DH crazy.

    DH insists that we eat Mexican once a week, and I get so sick of it. And when he eats chips, he brushes the salt off of his hands over the chips in the basket. I think it's so rude and gross.
  • DH sucks on his knuckle. It's the weirdest thing and it drives me bonkers!

    He also refuses to touch other people's dirty dishes. Major germphobe.

    Putting garbage (like wrappers) in random places. Even if he's standing next to the can.

    Making said dinner and there is only meat. Dude, what about the sides?

    This may be a dumb question and I swear I'm not trying to be an @ss. Why would you leave lights on throughout the house if you're not using them?

  • I nicknamed DH Hansel, because he leaves a freaking trail behind him everywhere he goes. He starts his morning in the bathroom, leaves the cap off the toothpaste, and his towel balled up on top of the toilet. He then moves to the kitchen to make his breakfast and lunch, and leaves wrappers, crumbs, and silverware on the counter. When he cooks, there are ingredients, pots and pans, and "stuff" everywhere. It's like hr doesn't see the crap he leaves everywhere. It makes me a little crazy inside. But I deal with it, because he religiously cleans my garbage dumpster of a car twice a month. I tried to explain to him once that I was collecting empty coffee cups and juice boxes for a collage about motherhood, but he just grunted and threw them all away.

    This may be a dumb question and I swear I'm not trying to be an @ss. Why would you leave lights on throughout the house if you're not using them?

    lol no it is fine. Our main floor has an open floor plan so it is really kind of like one large room that is the kitchen, living room and dining room. S he will turn off all the lights in the kitchen and over the dining room table and it feels like half of one large room is dark.

    Upstairs we have lamps everywhere because I sort of hate overhead lighting unless it is recessed lighting in the ceiling (so I hate ceiling fixtures..... I know I am weird). The way the wiring works, none of the lamps are hooked up to light switches and have to be turned on at the lamp. So I will usually leave one lamp on in our room so if I run up there for something or when we go up for the night, it is not pitch black. I don't have the house lit up like a Christmas tree, I just like a single light on in the bedrooms so you can see.

    Are we married to the same guy?

    I'll add:
    He always leaves his clothes on the chest at the foot of the bed.

    He always has to call his mom, friends, brother, etc. right at the start of getting ds ready for bed. Really, it can't wait 15 minutes? A little help would be nice.

    he always has to tell me when he's doing something around the house. Like he cleaned off his workbench in the garage and made a huge deal about it. That's nice, how about throwing in a load of laundry next time instead.

  • New here, but my husband has a few issues:

    1) he is sitting at the other end of the couch right now and he is picking his nose...and eating it!! I catch him doing this at least once a month and it is soooo gross! And you want me to have sex with you later after that?

    2) doesn't rinse his electric tooth brush off...ever...and leaves it standing n the counter, so there are white rings all over our dark countertop. Yuck.

     3) he never wipes off the counter tops or empties the food scraps out of the sink drain,

    4) pretty much announces to everyone when he has to go #2 in the bathroom.

    5) uses like 1000 wipes to clean up a poopy diaper. 

    ( man, he sounds awfully dirty when I write this out!)

    Yep, this for me too. I am a one pot chef. DW will use 3 dishes when 1 would suffice.

    i was just thinking I needed to update.

    He never went back for more counseling, but he finally realizes that it wasn't me.  We were talking one night and I became completely unglued and blew up at him. Very uncharacteristic of me.  I'm usually very even keel.   I got a lot of things off my chest and felt a lot better.  A week later, we started having sex again .  I never got an apology and I probably never will. 

    I just hope that its really over this time.  I dealt with that for over a year and it was probably the worst year of my life. 

  • DH will open a package of something - chips, pop tarts, cereal, etc and not close it properly, so the remaining food goes stale.

    He will wrap up leftovers, but leave them on the counter top.  Those really annoy me, because it's wasting food.

    Well right now he's making me watch the beginning of Wrong Turn 4 because he doesn't remember watching it before. We could be watching Role Models instead. I hate these movies. D!ck...

  • He squeezes the tooth paste weird. He squeezes it like a toddler would, so we have separate tooth pastes.

    He tries to "snuggle" in the middle of the night except his elbow, knee, or foot is the only thing touching me. Thanks but I'll let you know if I'm ever in the mood for a good elbow cuddle...

    He puts empty cereal boxes away in the pantry. One morning I found 3. THREE empty boxes. Why?

  • 1. I am pretty sure that he wonders what the big chest at the end of the bed is for. It couldn't be a laundry basket. All his clothes surround it or are on top of it. Never in it.

    2. The man can't close a drawer or cupboard for the life of him.

    3. This is my big one. He is tall. So if he sees a spider or moth on the ceiling he reaches up and squishes it, and leaves the little mashed carcass on the ceiling. It is gross and I have to get a step ladder to clean it off. When I complain he says that he is leaving it there as a message to other bugs to get out of our house. Um no, that is just nasty. Get a tissue and wipe it off!
