What does your DP do that drives you crackers (lighthearted)?

When I was moving in with my DP 5 years ago, I asked an older colleague for advice about long-term relationships. She said that she had been married for 15 years, and sometimes she and her H were just so in love and life was a bed of roses. Then there were times when she could have murdered him for the stupid stuff he did, and it was even worse because the stuff that bugged her had been bugging her for 15 years!

That's the way it goes with me and DP too. Sometimes I absolutely adore him, sometimes I could scream kill him . Things that are currently irritating the living shit out of me:

- absolutely non-stop bloody singing and whistling
- leaving his hoodies and tracky pants draped over the chairs in the living room for days on end
- sneezing that sounds more like screaming and makes me jump out of my skin
- not turning the TV/radio/computer down when I get in from work so that I have to scream my response at him when he asks 'how was your day?'
- watching every single bastard program that's got anything to do with railways or construction or technology
- on days when it's his turn to cook, asking me what I want for dinner and then whingeing that anything I suggest is too complicated/expensive/boring/something else negative. WELL YOU BLOODY DECIDE WHAT TO COOK THEN! <breathes>

He's really lovely and very sweet but at times my nerves take a shredding!
Come and share your gripes smile

Oh can i add some?
Answers the phone in the middle of me talking hmm doesn't even say 'sorry it's <insert name here> i need to get this just....'hello?' Before i even know the phone has rung.
Doesn't respond when i'm talking and then when i say 'ummm yes? No? Maybe? Anything?!' He gets all 'I HEEEARRRD YOUUU!!' Umm yeah so... Respond? It's called reciprocation?!?!hmm
