There are always threads bashing the DPs/DHs/DWs and all the irritating things they do. So what does your OH have to put up with that you do?

My DP has to put up with me tickling him all the time. It especially annoys him because I'm not ticklish so he can't get me back. He also puts up with popcorn in the bed from when we have watched a film and I have missed my mouth. Poor guy. Never hardly ever complains about it. grin

My pregnancy grumpiness

BeingATwatItsABingThing Fri 26-Aug-16 08:37:42

Ah yes. The pregnancy hormones. My DP didn't have to put up with much of that from me. Baricades self in denial

I am clumsy and break our stuff. Especially cars :/ and I leave a pile of mess chucked out of my handbags at the bottom of the stairs. This is probably outing as he moans about it to anyone who will listen... Otherwise I'm perfect, of course!

BeingATwatItsABingThing Fri 26-Aug-16 08:41:01

My DP can't complain about mess. He is worse than me! grin

I have hideous PMT in the week running up to my period each month. I love DH, enormously, but during that week can't abide him. I don't want hugs, kisses, I don't even want eye contact. It's totally batshit and he ought to hate me for it. But he's learned to just leave me be. Working in a school with 4/5 year olds I have no option to be grumpy at work; I have to smile and be lovely and kind and patient, and I am. But the minute I get home and put the DCs to bed I need complete silence and solitude. It must be awful for him, really. He's a good lad.

WhooooAmI24601 Fri 26-Aug-16 08:46:00

Oh also I buy ridiculously-priced shoes and handbags. It's my money so he can't complain, but it's entirely frivolous and I know he hates seeing money wasted.

This is timely for me because I"ve only JUST today acknowledged that my slight hoarding habit and extreme untidiness is affecting my DH badly.

He's always moaned at me...I really am very untidy. I leave things like clothes, books, paperwork and trinkets everywhere.

He today told me he was feeling like he couldn't control his own things because of the way I leave wardrobes and cupboards in a mess and that it was getting him really down...he's always losing things. I keep junk and put it in the kitchen drawers...I cover surfaces with stuff...

I'm getting on top of it this weekend.

My temper goes from 0-100 in a split second these days and we've just started ttc so it's either that or pmt grin

Love me, love my hormones mister!

BeingATwatItsABingThing Fri 26-Aug-16 08:58:53

This could put me if DP is reading this.

I have a habit of not waking up properly when DD cries in the night and turning off the monitor like it's an alarm.. blush

I'll keep remembering more throughout the day. My DP really is a saint. grin

*out not put

Any Partner has to put up with my clumsiness and forgetfulness, or rather having to put everything in my phone, or it doesn't happen.

I break things and have stupid accidents, cups of tea/soup leap from my hands and I sometimes miss my mouth when I eat. I have to really concentrate and be careful about putting anything important away.

Spot squeezing under protest and throwing shit about in a temper a la Naomi Campbell

BeingATwatItsABingThing Fri 26-Aug-16 09:07:01

Thought of another one.

I start most conversations with "I read on MN" or "They were talking about ... on MN". He manages to not eye roll every time.

I leave stuff at the bottom of the stairs and no matter how much I tidy the house it's always messy again the following day

weeblueberry Fri 26-Aug-16 09:12:26

Oh Christ loads...

I'm grumpy, critical, have ridiculously high standards then get annoyed when people don't meet them, hiss when he's driving sometimes if he gets too close to other cars, expect him to know how I'm feeling without telling him, can be passive aggressive and am probably not as affectionate as he'd like.

And those were just the ones off the top of my head!! blush

DollyBarton Fri 26-Aug-16 09:12:34

I can be a bit controlling of timings and having everything perfect. I know I piss him off with my inflexibility at times. Hes much more jump in at the deep end and sort things out as you go along. I'm glad of that, he balances me and has taught me that getting worked up about stuff is pointless.

clam Fri 26-Aug-16 09:14:52

You tickle him all the time, despite knowing he hates it? hmm
Why on earth would you do that??

BeingATwatItsABingThing Fri 26-Aug-16 09:17:32

I believe what I said clam, is that I tickle DP and it annoys him because he can't tickle me back. He doesn't hate it. If he did, I wouldn't do it.

Good to see you are getting into the light hearted spirit of the thread.

I collapse on the sofa every evening at 9 and refuse to move. Thereafter I ask/beg/demand/whine until he brings me the phone, my book, a cup of tea - whatever I'm wanting.
He's also good on undertaking midnight hunts for my asthma inhaler when I need it. And very forgiving when I leave the high up kitchen cupboard open (its just the right height for him to smack his head on).

BeingATwatItsABingThing Fri 26-Aug-16 09:29:32

Not necessary anymore but he used to lend me his phone when I had run out of data and needed to go out somewhere. This meant leaving him with my rose pink phone. grin

I have a short fuse when people don't understand stuff straight away. DH is a bit, ahem, slow on the uptake sometimes so gets an ear full regularly.

I have no patience for people who are ill. I don't mean people who are like properly ill with serious health problems but like a bit of flu. I understand that they're ill and they can't help it but it irritates me. I think DH is actually quite scared to get flu.

I break our laptops all the time.

When I can't do something, I just have a bit of a paddy and get angry at DH for not helping even though he might be at work and have no idea I need help.

I speak too quietly. Also I'm fussy about food being just so.

BeingATwatItsABingThing Fri 26-Aug-16 09:39:45

Blerg, I'm not so much fussy about food being just so but I am a massively fussy eater. It somewhat restricts the restaurants we go to.

Gottagetmoving Fri 26-Aug-16 09:40:29

I don't leave things straight or shut doors or put things away properly or give enough details if I tell him something......according to him. I think he is too fussy.
