What do you secretly do, that would drive your partner mad if they knew?

I clear (her) hair from the plughole with her eyebrow tweezers.

Oh, and pee in our garden bushes. As does our son.

Writerwannabe83 Wed 21-Sep-16 08:11:10

Why do you pee in the bushes? That's so grim.

What a lovely habit to teach your son.....

SaggyNaggy Wed 21-Sep-16 08:13:11

That wouldn't drive my partner mad, shed just think I was a scummy fucker.

LolaStarr Wed 21-Sep-16 08:13:11

I don't think I'd be admitting to either of those, disgusting confused

perrita Wed 21-Sep-16 08:13:49

confused why on earth do you pee in the garden bushes? That's disgusting and lazy surely you have at least one toilet inside your property.

BelfastBloke Wed 21-Sep-16 08:22:41

I didn't teach my son; he did it of his own accord.

I didn't feel I could criticise as I also enjoy it.

But it's only a few times a year, usually during mowing the lawn or something - it's not like it's a really regular thing. I do think men enjoy peeing outdoors in a primal way.

That's grim. Mankind has evolved a bit since caveman days.

Ignore his lectures on safety and walk wherever I damn well please whenever I damn well please because I refuse to have my freedom to do so curtailed because I am just a weak little woman. I can make my own assessments of danger and I don't need men to do it for me thanks.

I bet you wee in the shower too? And then use her tweezers in the shower?? So grim

Put my mooncup through the dishwasher

Secretly watch Crap tv like Made in Chelsea grin

acasualobserver Wed 21-Sep-16 08:29:32

You and your son should be peeing on your compost heap not on your bushes.

Luckystar1 Wed 21-Sep-16 08:30:26

Well Belfast as a fellow Norn Ironer, I'm going to defend you by pointing out that male urine is frequently advised on mn as a means of keeping cats out of gardens.

Also, I don't see the big deal anyway! It's only pee!

The tweezers thing... It's only hair.

My DP's dad and his friend dropped by the house to see DD as they were early for somewhere else that they needed to be. They were sitting in the garden and just before leaving they said that they needed to use toilet. I got up to show his friend where I was but both ambled to a corner in the garden and pissed against my bushes. They are both men in their 60s.

I was too shocked to say anything but it is beyond grim

I secretly buy a tub of pringles and demolish it all by myself.

whattheseithakasmean Wed 21-Sep-16 08:38:45

Lighten up folks, it's pee, not agent orange!

I put horse equipment through the dishwasher (and in the washing machine, but he spots that cos it leaves hair in the drum).

Mycatsabastard Wed 21-Sep-16 08:39:32

Actually, men peeing in the garden keeps cats away, especially male cats who like to spray.

I can't think of anything I do that DP doesn't know about but he does make the cats bum face when I want to watch something dumbed down on TV such as X factor.

PotatoBread Wed 21-Sep-16 08:40:27

... am not sure why I found it so grim as I'm sure that there is cat and dog piss on loads of bushes in the near by area. There was just something about it that made me drop my mouth in shock and grimace to myself

Cross the road without waiting for the green man. Daredevil that I am.

Hagothehills Wed 21-Sep-16 08:51:09

Buy myself a coffee and maybe something to eat at the costa near ds's nursery instead of taking a thermos and a sad, squashed sandwich from home.
He's very careful with money bloody miser! but it's one of my few chances to have a half hour to relax sans toddler, I'd like to do it properly! Not like it's going to break the bank we aren't rich but we're definitely not skint either.

Also use his beard comb to comb the tangles out of DS curls. He won't let me near him with anything else

ArieltheMermaid1720 Wed 21-Sep-16 08:52:36

Smoke, very, very occasionally and watch really crap tv like Geordie shore.

notmyfirst Wed 21-Sep-16 09:30:31

Also have a sneaky coffee from Costa etc (and the overpriced cafe's in the park) when out as a treat (I take a thermos as well, but sometimes I just want to splurge on a coffee).

BelfastBloke Wed 21-Sep-16 09:31:45

If it keeps the neighbours' cats out of my garden I'm going to start doing it more!

I mean, they're my own bushes, and no-one else goes near them - not even my family.

QueenofallIsee Wed 21-Sep-16 09:51:37

Secretly smoke a few times a year. Very very ocassionally buy a box of 2 raspberry turnovers and eat both before he comes home from work.

Drink milk straight out of the bottle and woof back at dogs.
