What does your dp or dh do that irritates you?(150 Posts)
Ate a bar of choc that was a present for a neighbour (that I hid in the freezer)
Ate most of my nice olives before I had a chance to have one
Decided to dip ds in the sea in a pair of doodles I had bought the day before (still got soaking wet shoes).
Made a load of mess in the kitchen which I've had to clear up this am on my day off.
Ate the remainder of the bread
I could go on..........
Am I alone?
Doesn't understand that I can watch the TV and be on the laptop at the same time. Yes, I am typing and listening and watching at the same time. It's called multi-tasking.
Is unable to leave the house without checking the back door, the oven, the lights, the dogs, the shower, the toilet, the bread bin and the windows at least 3 fucking times. When he says he's leaving in 5 minutes, the DC's sit down and put the TV on as they know how long he will take.
Snores like a water buffalo, and then denies it despite the video evidence to prove it.
Tidies up anything that doesn't belong to him, and throws it away. Including my clothes that go to the Charity shop as, I quote "he didn't think I wore them anymore" How the fuck would he know. They are my clothes.
But, I love him anyway
Ahhh, some of these things are actually really sweet - a wise woman (my mum) once told me the really annoying things now are the things you find the most endearing later. Mine does the advert/channel hopping thing and when it is something i am watching 'forgets' (read doesn't really want to) turn back unless I say something like 'oh are we watching this now'. DH - 'er i was just waiting for the adverts' ONE time this happened we switched back and there was, like 5 seconds left of said adverts, and DH looked really pleased with himself.
Another thing - sometimes decides that a certain drawer/cupboard etc must get 'tidied'. Queue everything thrown out in disarray, and put back EXACTLY as it was before, after a lot of huffing and puffing and general 'work'. Then sits down with a beer looking like he has discovered the way to world peace etc.
Runs upstairs just as we leave the house a d us about two more minutes doing god knows what.
Last week I just drove off and went to where we had planned.
He had done a lot if clearing up by the time I got home and neither of us has mentioned it
Is obsessed with how much space is left on the SKY+ box for recording
What is this about?? Exactly the same here: currently there is only 14% space left. Drives him mad!!
Tea, I've heard it the other way round, but I guess it comes full circle in the end
BOF Quite right - I think maybe it depends on if they are to with 'bodily functions' or not
Tea - so well said: Another thing - sometimes decides that a certain drawer/cupboard etc must get 'tidied'. Queue everything thrown out in disarray, and put back EXACTLY as it was before, after a lot of huffing and puffing and general 'work'. Then sits down with a beer looking like he has discovered the way to world peace etc.. The ability of men to feel genuinely satisfied with themselves for semi-accomplishing some basic task. I really wish I could feel that.
Says something something something BUT something something in a way that makes me want to sharpen sticks.
If I was married to bellybutton-fluff-dinner-plate man I would be in prison now.
DP puts tissue on his plate (like you do with a napkin at a restaurant) but then doesn't throw it in the bin so it gets stuck to the sauce/gravy which I then have to pick off
The bed sheet always comes undone on his side of the bed, yet blames me
He either snores/grinds teeth/talks in his sleep. He'll then say I made up whatever he has said.. Why would I do that?!
Gets out ALL of the towels, uses 2-3 of them and leaves them around, I then have to guess which ones need washing. He won't put the used ones in the wash
Makes a cup of tea for bed, leaves it to cool down on my side then expects me to stay awake until it is ready to then try and find it and pass it to him without spilling it in the dark
When he's getting undressed for bed he'll whip his boxers off and then use them to wipe his bollocks.
Everynight I have to listen to the fwap fwap sound of his tackle smacking against his thighs.
Like BOF says, if he does shuffle this mortal coil before me whenever I hear the fwap fwap noise I like to think it will be a comfort...
Wipe his bollocks??? What he is removing from them? Just a general freshen up?
Doesn't put lids back on properly. Nearly dropped olive oil, marmite, jam etc. as the lid looks like its on but it's just balanced. Screw it on damn you!
Switches tele over when he comes in. Leaves room 45 seconds later. I was fucking watching that I'll be trying to shout but inevitably will have a very nearly sleeping baby attached to my nipple so can't move or shout and am now stuck watching fucking Dave.
Wanders off. From restaurants, lunches with friends/family / shopping trips. Gets it into his head that the baby needs walking around / someone needs something and he'll just go off and do it. I laugh about most stuff but I go bonkers when that happens. He just doesn't see it as rude/mad.
Ferret my XH used to use his dirty pants to clean out his ears after a shower, that was a delight too! Nice that you'll be comforted in old age by the sound of your H's ghostly tackle slapping against his thighs!
These are so funny, they're all as bad as each other aren't they?!
bof have you been together long?
It's just that I remember feeling that dh could do no wrong ever and even his annoying things were endearing.
7 yrs later he's just annoying constantly.
I am also more intolerant though.
Omg I thought my dh was the only disgusting person to use his worn boxer to wipe his balls/arse crack etc. it is FOUL!!! The delight is he will leave them on the floor for me to pick up and wash later (barf)
*update - we currently have 23% on the sky box so all is well at the mo (but he has just deleted 2 of the kids Simpsons episodes...unwatched!!!) *rolls eyes
Bites his own toe nails
Yes I read this thread correctly and yes it is my DH that can and does bite his own toe nails
This is excellent, where do I start?
YY to the Sky+, heaven forbid we get to 30% left! Panic!
- Always has to be reminded to put the bin bags out, even though it's every Thurs eve
- leaves skidders in the loo every day without fail and a drip of wee on the loo seat. We have a fresh brush and loo cleaner next to the toilet, but I'm the only one who can see them apparently
- leaves washing up for the dishwasher on top of the dishwasher
- always has something wrong with him as soon as we go on holiday. This week it's terrible hay fever
- needs more sleep than I do. Even when I've had 3 hours because of 9 week old, he still has to sleep in, every day
- has a man cave in the attic, but his shit is still all over the house
- moans he never has time to be in the man cave, whilst lying on sofa channel hopping/lying in bed
- shouts at the kids too quickly thus putting everyone in a bad mood
- gets cross at a moment's notice for no reason whatsoever
Apart from that, a real sweetie, with a heart of gold, kind considerate, fun and I love him to bits!
And I'm really annoying!
Fungal toe infection... Still! After years
Revolting table manners
Blows nose loudly over the table/other people
Little energy for dc at w/e, gets up about 11am.. To cook breakfast, just for him, does no housework, impatient with dc
He sees no reason to exercise or to try and look after his health/look attractive
Right now i hate him and find him singularly unattractive.., i have pmt so particularly hateful today... He's ok really, a decent man who works hard at his job and thinks he loves me
but am doubtful he really knows what that means
Mil thinks he's quite a catch -" handsome, hands-on, active, sporty and supportive" apparently
And, unsurprinsgky right now, dh thinks "i can be a bitch".
Think need to do something, finally, more than irritated, but incompatible and little love. Not happy families here
- Farts in bed then gives me a gameshow host style smile because he's so very pleased with himself.
- Is an aggressive driver, will yell at someone who pulls into his lane miles away and takes it as a personal insult if someone is driving below the speed limit.
- Insists on having both the ceiling fan and a pedestal fan on at night in the summer then gets too cold in his sleep and takes all the blankets, leaving me freezing and exposed to cold air blowing from all directions (we live in australia).
- Is competitive with me over the most trivial things, ie. who's gotten further in candy crush saga.
his ability to walk past or over anything left in the floor by dc's or himself ( washing/ towels/toys) he just doesn't see it
and the fact the minute we are leaving the house to go anywhere...he needs to brush his teeth!...never knowing where is wallet/keys/phone are either
Constantly taps his fingers and bobs his foot up and down when watching tv. He also does this when driving, making the ride less than smooth. I am seriously considering never going into his car again.
Faffs on his phone all night. Reads every single bloody e mail before deleting it.
Snores. Complains he's knackered but watches crap on the tv until the early hours of the morning.
I could go on
Eats raw carrots so loud I could slap him
Gulps water/or any drink so loud I could slap him
Always feels me up in his sleep....which is annoying in itself, but on the occasions when reciprocated by me he turns over and starts snoring...then ends up in a mood and will say we haven't had sex in ages!!
Asks me constantly where something is and then when I tell him he can never find it, which means I have to get up to where it is and pull it from EXACTLY where I said it was....which is usually from right in front of his face!!! I don't know, I think he expects to open a drawer and for the thing he wants to jump up and out at him!! would never occur to him to move something look under/behind to find it!
Asks me where something I didn't know we owned/or haven't seen in years is and then gets annoyed when I don't have a clue where it is and of course he can't look for it by himself I have to get up and help him find it! Followed by a long sulk and constant discussing where it might be if we have found said item!.....Drive me nuts!!
Will sit on the sofa and take just one sock off and leave the other one on! I constantly find odd socks all over the house!
He is a good cook though, and even tidies the kitchen!
