What does your dp or dh do that irritates you?

Yesterday.... Mine....
angry
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?

themonsteratemyspacebar Thu 27-Jun-13 12:02:42

Mine plays with his belly button all of the time. Its really irritating!
Even started saying it will drop off......then realised it makes no sense blush
Yesterday i said it will change to an outie, then what will you do?! He just looked at me like this hmm

BookieMonster Thu 27-Jun-13 12:04:29

Completely fills the dishwasher in the evening but doesn't turn it on leaving me very behind the next morning. It really winds me up.

meditrina Thu 27-Jun-13 12:08:25

Breathes!

And snores. But he's lost a lot of weight recently, and it's become a lot easier to sleep through both.

bordellosboheme Thu 27-Jun-13 12:11:08

Bookie, filling the dishwasher seems pretty impressive to me. Dp has probably done that once since we bought it!

Waves at me randomly, e.g. when he sits down for dinner. confused I know this is really trivial blush, but it just winds me up! That is so not when you wave at people, you wave across the street when you've seen someone you know, or you wave goodbye to your relatives when they're driving away. You don't wave at your wife, who you've already seen and talked to that evening, as you're sitting down at the dinner table.

I've told him this is weird and annoying, but he doesn't see my problem.

DiscoDonkey Thu 27-Jun-13 12:19:14

Notgood that really made me laugh (and I'm in costs alone!) I have an image of Forrest Gump sitting down at the table and doing a little rigid, socially awkward wave.

DiscoDonkey Thu 27-Jun-13 12:19:37

Costa not costs

SonOfAradia Thu 27-Jun-13 12:21:19

Never, ever puts things away in the kitchen after making a snack or doing any cooking.

Doesn't have a clue how to load the dishwasher or turn it on.

As above, but substitute washing machine for dishwasher.

Worst of all: spends hours and hours and hours on online forums (not this one) and snaps at DS (6) when he wants some attention.

Always leaves it to me to bath DS and put him to bed.

There's more, but that's enough to be going on with.

I do love her, but she can be a bit of a trial sometimes!

CatInWellies Thu 27-Jun-13 12:23:41

Goes into ridiculous amounts of detail about the most pointless things, but misses out details of important things!
For example, a conversation from the other day:
Him: "I'll have a look in The Range for my car bulb, since we're going there anyway"
Me "Oh, I didn't know there was a car parts bit there"
Him "Yeah just as you go in, on the left hand side, walk about eight steps down, just past the curtains and stuff, it takes up half an aisle and they do T-Cut and air fresheners and.."
We were already going there! Together! Plus, I don't buy car stuff so I'm never going to need to know the precise location of the car parts department.

And then I'll be talking to someone else, I'll relay the conversation to DP and he'll say "oh yeah, I meant to tell you that last week..sorry.." Argh!

It's rubbing off on my son too, the other day we were talking and he went off on a tangent about where exactly he was at the time he'd had a similar conversation with his dad. I felt like screaming "just get to the bloody point!"

RobotBananas Thu 27-Jun-13 12:26:42

Waves his legs around when lying on the sofa. Drives me fucking batshit.
Shouts at DD through gritted teeth. Argh.
Never wants to eat anything other than chicken for dinner.
Whistles.
Moans about being tired, but always insists on sleeping on the sofa confused

Ugh.. too many more to mention.

SnookyPooky Thu 27-Jun-13 12:30:28

Puts shite on the TV then falls asleep after 10 mins.
Goes to buy cat food but doesn't think to get bread and milk.
Eats us out if house and home when he is off work and bored.
Can't do anything quietly, when HE is having 40 winks I tiptoe around, can I expect the same? No.

Bluecarrot Thu 27-Jun-13 12:31:27

Mainly what he doesn't do that winds me up!

Not putting stuff away, doesn't clean up all hair after shaving, is not domesticated etc and plays the"I'm new to this" card.

And he buys me MASSIVE bars of chocolate. Then I eat all the chocolate. I would have been happy ( and lighter) with the tiny bar. ( ok, that one was lighthearted!)

Lottapianos Thu 27-Jun-13 12:36:21

I love these threads grin

Farts for Britain and is proud of it hmm
Sit on couch with hands down his pants
Tells me far too much any detail about the frequency and quality of his poos <vomit>
Will do the washing up but never ever ever puts pots and pans away, just leaves them on top of the hob
Talks to me at length about stuff that I could not give a tiny rat's arse about, like trains and railway lines and the entire life history of Wilko Johnson
Asks me what I would like for dinner and then whines and complains that whatever I suggest sounds like too much hard word <rage>

He's lovely really grin There are loads more too.

ShatnersBassoon Thu 27-Jun-13 12:37:50

Can't give a straight answer or make a snap decision. Everything has to be mulled over and put out to tender. Drives me bloody mad.

LulaPalooza Thu 27-Jun-13 12:48:12

Is incapable of turning a light off
Channel hops constantly when watching TV. For example, we will be watching a film (usually one that I don't want to watch anyway) then the ad breaks come on so he switches to something else, watches that for half an hour then goes back to the film.
Takes washing out of the tumble dryer and leaves it in a heap on a chair in the kitchen
Has a memory like a seive

bordellosboheme Thu 27-Jun-13 12:49:02

These are making me feel better, even if some are a little tame wink

Wineandchoccy Thu 27-Jun-13 12:57:00

Doesn't use a chopping board when making a sandwich so when I come home there's tomato seeds and grated cheese stuck to the work top.

Washes up but doesn't think to put anything away so it's like a game of Jenga but with dishes and glasses balanced to the ceiling!

UnknownGnome Thu 27-Jun-13 13:10:59

Loses things by not putting them back where they should go. Things have a place for a reason. We work shifts so some weeks he'll do the school run and afterschool clubs. When it comes to my week I can't find a farking thing. Kids' sunhats, swimming costumes, football kit, homework. It's like he just throws things and leaves them where they land.

Similarly, when I'm at work he'll phone me to ask me mundane things - "what shall I put in the kids' sandwiches?", "do you think they need their coats?" hmm Make a decision; you're a parent too!

He always steps on the squeaky floorboards. They're easy to avoid!

He tries to drink his tea literally as soon as it's been poured resulting in lots of small slurps angry That one bothers me a lot!

Juneywoony Thu 27-Jun-13 13:13:18

Chews the skin around his nails really loudly when we are watching TV yuk!
When he makes his sandwiches(I mainly do this because) he just leaves all the crumbs and mess on the worktop grrrrrrrr! Same with toast, just get a cloth and wipe it up takes seconds! Oh and with poached eggs just leaves the pan on the hob, I've left it a couple of times to see how long before he would tidy it and it's still there the next day double grrrrr!

The worst by far is at night, he snores, chews his tongue and makes this weird noise where I think he is trying to itch the roof of his mouth which has been a lot worse recently as his hay fever has been bad, it gets me so angry even though I know he cant help it, I literally lay there seething and giving him the odd push then pretend to be asleep when he wakes up haha!

Other than that he's really lovely grin

Lottapianos Thu 27-Jun-13 13:18:20

'He tries to drink his tea literally as soon as it's been poured resulting in lots of small slurps '

My DP slurps his coffee and chomps his food, and gulps down water like a baby calf <loads shotgun> It's so bloody inconsiderate and ignorant!

myflabberisgasted Thu 27-Jun-13 13:25:16

NotGoodNotBad that really made me laugh! I am sat here crying with laughter that s so random! grin

Shodan Thu 27-Jun-13 13:48:02

The current annoyance is that he'll ask me, every time, if he needs a jacket when we go out.

1) I am not his mother
2) His body temperature is higher than mine (think shorts in winter)
3) He's 39, ffs.
4)I am still not his mother.

Then he gets miffed when I get grrr about it.

WakeyCakey Thu 27-Jun-13 14:18:14

DP will eat his tea then put his belly button fluff on the plate [boak]

Snores like a rhino then complains that HE slept badly!

Makes the sound of mr tickle while tickling me. Drives me absolutely insane!!!

Is a competitive sick person...if you are I'll he is worse. We recently got a kitten and he complained when we took her to the vets that he thought he had worms! And when I was in hospital for a burst cyst told the surgeon that he had a very sore shoulder!!!

NorbertDentressangle Thu 27-Jun-13 14:25:05

Snores all sodding night and then moans about how he's not slept a wink all night hmm.

No, DP...I'm the one who's not slept and that's because of your snoring!!!

DonutForMyself Thu 27-Jun-13 14:40:26

notgoodnotbad you're mean! I think its really cute that yoyr DH waves at you across the dinner table!

My DP:

always says yes to a cup of tea but never actually drinks it (I must waste truck loads of tea bags and sweeteners!)

ate the sweets I bought for the DCs to give their dad on Fathers Day

goes on random diets so each week I end up having to stock up on different versions of 'healthy' food, leaving me with stock piles of now 'inedible' food

cuddles me when he's tired and leans on me so I'm supporting his entire body weight or I'll fall over!

leaves the fridge open/gas hob on (yes, I should be glad he cooked, but not if he's going to burn the house down!)

leaves lights on in every room he visits

never locks the doors (he lives in a sleepy village where apparently nobody ever got burgled!) We've had 5 burglaries in my neighbourhood in the past couple of months!

brings the dinnertime conversation down to toilet humour every single day without fail!

DonutForMyself Thu 27-Jun-13 14:41:21

Shodan yes, that too!

DonutForMyself Thu 27-Jun-13 14:42:45

takes his socks off and throws them across the room

takes his trousers off and leaves them in the middle of the room

oh dear he's sounding a bit annoying now!

imnotmymum Thu 27-Jun-13 14:46:31

I am crying here. Seriously deep breath- cannot look for anything shouts randomly "HONEY!!", leaves stuff everywhere and tells me not to move it so he knows where it is -this is usually the kitchen table so ..., makes a rubbish job of the bed, talks about finances on the way to a night out, takes something out the wardrobe or off the rail then leaves it draped on top, can clearly order anything off ebay/Amazon comes to online banking bills "HONEY!!", starts talking about random stuff in the morning before I have had a cup of tea...

beginnings Thu 27-Jun-13 14:53:23

Oh good lord Shatners I think our DH might be the same person and therefore a bigamist. Drives me batshit crazy. I threw my toys out of the pram this morning and said that I REFUSED to have any more sodding conversations about sodding garden furniture. His DM can sit on the sodding patio for all I care. But then, if I go ahead and DO stuff I get into trouble!! We're having our first holiday in three years this summer because i just booked it. I said, I'm not talking about it any more, I'm just booking it.

AND, he bites his nails when watching the telly and then FLICKS them.

This morning he got all sulky when I suggested politely (ok, not very politely) that walking across the bedroom while leaving our 13 month old on the changing table was a bit fucking stupid!

newmumsuchfun Thu 27-Jun-13 14:53:24

1. Is INCAPABLE of putting the Lurpack back in the fridge after using it.
2. Always leaves his tea bag in his cup so I have to scoop it out when doing washing up.
3. Makes tea and toast - but will eat or drink them an hour later as he only eats or drinks them cold.
4. Doesn't seem able to use a plate to eat toast. Oh. the. crumbs.

As you can tell - most of his annoying things happen in the morning.

Lottapianos Thu 27-Jun-13 14:53:30

'The current annoyance is that he'll ask me, every time, if he needs a jacket when we go out.'

OMG mine does this too! How the jeff should I know whether you need a jacket or not?!

More:

spends far too much fecking time playing on his bloody phone
sings constantly
never ever shuts the sliding mirrored door on the wardrobe, so I turn around to check my reflection and all I can see is a row of his shirts <grr>
wears a 'slobbing about' uniform of t-shirt, pants, socks and old man slippers shock Actually, this one is quite funny but irritates me a bit sometimes too, like please cant you try to look half decent, even if it is only the two of us at home!

beginnings Thu 27-Jun-13 14:55:25

Accuses me of not being a team player and then sits on the sofa while I run around like a blue arsed fly getting things ready to go out and when I point out that a bit of help would be nice I get:

"But I was looking after DD" or

"But you didn't tell me what you wanted me to do."

I'm not your sodding mummy gets said A LOT in our house.

beginnings Thu 27-Jun-13 14:58:20

Does anyone else want to commit murder at the sound of a windowed envelope having things shoved BACK into it because then he'll chuck it on the hall table and won't forget to do something with it.

It doesn't work, love. In SEVEN years of living with you, I have NEVER seen that work. You still forget. And then you blame me.

This thread is cathartic!

imnotmymum Thu 27-Jun-13 14:58:32

Oh yes the tea bag thing always leaves it on the bloody draining board

newmumsuchfun Thu 27-Jun-13 15:00:43

oh AND.... he will eat the last thing in a packet/ box ... biscuit for example - AND THEN PUT THE EMPTY BOX BACK IN THE CUPBOARD!!!!!

So i go... oooh a lovely biscui... DAMN IT!

HandMini Thu 27-Jun-13 15:01:30

Scratches around in his pants for half an hour every morning while wandering around the house in a manky old dressing gown which process he calls "waking up".

I, in the same time frame, manage to get up, showered and dressed, feed baby and wake and dress toddler.... I see his morning role as provider of amusement!

HandMini Thu 27-Jun-13 15:02:45

Ps, whichever PP complained about the waving across the table I think that sounds quite cute!

FederationPresidentBarryFife Thu 27-Jun-13 15:03:40

Ha ha at the waving!! grin
I have been wanting to vent these for a while this is the perfect thread for me. My DH:
Brings plates through to the kitchen and puts them ON TOP not in the dishwasher. Why??? It is literally no more effort.
Washes the pots but won't put them away, just leaves them neatly laid out on a tea towel like sacrificial offerings
Gets up and ignores everyone and everything including teh DC who are clamouring in order to have a smelly poo that stinks out the only bathroom
Is a total hypochondriac and HATES it when I am ill. He always comments "hmm I know what you mean" when I tell him I am not feeling well as if he has the same illness but is too brave to mention it.
Same with DD waking in the night. In the mornings, after sleeping like a flippin LOG, he will turn to me and say "how was last night?" I will say I was up at 12, 2 and 4am he ALWAYS says - "not too bad then" or worse - "when I woke up you both seemed sound asleep" GRRRRRRRRR

DioneTheDiabolist Thu 27-Jun-13 15:07:46

My BF has a serious problem with closing doors.angry

Front door. Cupboard doors. Fridge & freezer doors. He leaves them all open. I mean what the fuck is that all about? Makes me feel all stabby just thinking about it.

I have told him that he will never be my DP until he sorts it out.

imnotmymum Thu 27-Jun-13 15:09:11

AND.. he can organise his work life, make huge orders , arrange deliveries, travel all over to do his job but remembering dog food ..it is beyond him

When he works from home, he seems to occupy both the study, the dining table, the sofa, the bathroom... all at the same time.
He's everywhere! Go back to your office!

Lottapianos Thu 27-Jun-13 15:14:24

What is it with all this scratching around in pants?! I never sit/walk around the house with my hands down my knickers! shock grin

newmumsuchfun Thu 27-Jun-13 15:18:26

this thread is making me laugh - i completely identify with all of the above. especially the 'waking up' that he does while i have been up four hours prior to him being conscious, have looked after baby + tidied the whole house.
and he doesnt notice that i have tidied the whole house - just 'morning, (yawn)' argh!!!

newmumsuchfun Thu 27-Jun-13 15:19:52

i also can spend a good hour dolling myself up, putting on a nice outfit and styling hair... and he doesnt notice. sometimes i think i may as well wear a sack and sit in my own filth.

Phalenopsis Thu 27-Jun-13 15:23:16

"What is it with all this scratching around in pants?! I never sit/walk around the house with my hands down my knickers!" I do. What's good for the goose... grin

My OH picks his nose, rolls it into balls then flicks it on to the carpet! Why can't he just eat them like I do?!

My OH is obsessively tidy and moans at me for being messy which drives me bonkers.

I have much worse bad habits than he has though

Longdistance Thu 27-Jun-13 15:44:43

Chucks plates/ bowls into the sink with food still stuck to them.
Snores like a rhino.
Stains the toilet every time he dumps, leaving the most horrendous smell behind, that I'm sure a skunk would be proud of.
Cuts his toe nails in the garden. Not a problem, but he leaves them to grow so long that the clippings end up next door.
He doesn't know when to stop drinking.
He has the tact of a lead balloon.
He dumps his laundry on the floor beside the basket.
He splashes water everywhere in the bathroom when getting ready, and blames me, when its his sink.
Forgets to feed the dd's as he's not hungry.
Drives like an idiot that he is

Think I may trade him in for a different model, he obviously annoys the hell out of me hmm

Squitten Thu 27-Jun-13 16:48:27

Is an awful timekeeper
Keeps letting his mobile run flat
Leaves his clothes on the floor beside the bed rather than in the wardrobe (I don't pick them up but I hate the untidiness!)
Refuses to read the instruction manuals to anything and has to "work it out himself", which inevitably takes twice as long
Is generally grumpy before his morning coffee

LadyVJJ Thu 27-Jun-13 17:15:52

DH never puts things back where they should be and when I ask "have you seen xyz?", he always replies "have you spent five minutes looking for it?" Drives me batty!
Leaves one tattered sheet on loo roll rather than changing it as if one square inch of loo roll is going to wipe anything! But I love him lol! grin

Hassled Thu 27-Jun-13 17:19:01

Stirs his cereal far more than anyone ever needs to stir their cereal.

Says July "Jooooly".

Refers to his childhome house (where his parents still live) as being on an estate when in fact it's a single road unconnected to any other housing - some sort of infuriating reverse snobbery.

imnotmymum Thu 27-Jun-13 17:22:00

Oh and to continue...yes the mobile is flat and "Oh didn't anyone put it on charge last night for me...I have been busy working..." hmm DD points out can take a charger to work "Oh have not got time for charging phones!" hmmhmm

Triumphoveradversity Thu 27-Jun-13 17:26:01

DP will eat his tea then put his belly button fluff on the plate [boak] wakeycakey you must be a saint.

My DH leavescupboard doors open and doesn't put on the dishwasher once he has packed it. He leaves opened envelopes scattered about. Pretty tame really.

MediumExpectations Thu 27-Jun-13 17:31:56

Love the waving at the Dinner Table - so random.
DW's irritants are
- squeezes the tea bag and leaves it on the draining board
- sucks the tap when she has cleaned her teeth leaving a white film around it
- leaves the bloody Avon catalogue on the side. As soon as one goes another one comes along to replace it so there is never a day without one
Grrrr
I think if she was doing a list of mine though it would be a lot longer!

Currently nothing. Previously his very existence had the ability to wind me up, but we've kind of started again and are generally more accepting. I have to say life is an awful lot easier when one isn't permanently irritated!

SnookyPooky Thu 27-Jun-13 17:33:38

Forgot, he does odd jobs inside and out, manly shed stuff and garden watering in his UNDERPANTS. Ok we live in a hot country but put some clothes on ffs, you are not fooling anyone that those boxers are really shorts!

EccentricElastic Thu 27-Jun-13 17:36:46

Mine bangs his teeth together sooo hard when chewing his food, I'd swear there was a set of Maracas in there! grin

ShatnersBassoon Thu 27-Jun-13 17:45:41

beginnings, although they sound like the same man, I am certain that DH could never start another relationship without asking me for my opinion first. He calls all of his annoying indecision 'being polite, just checking what I think, letting me help in the decision making process' - even when it's just whether he should put a jacket on to go to the chippy hmm. Last week he texted me to ask if he should check the pressure on the car tyres.

I'm sure he must boggle at my ability to do so many things without anyone else's input.

KnittedC Thu 27-Jun-13 17:46:59

Leaves dirty socks balled up everywhere ... I decided to move the pouffe into another room to make more space for baby stuff in the front room, and found FOUR individual socks festering under there.

Falls asleep on the sofa and when I suggest he should go up to bed, protests that he's 'staying up with me'. Ummm, you're asleep?

Always talks about how fastidiously tidy he keeps his kitchen at work (he's a chef), often while leaving masses of sandwich making mess in the kitchen.

Makes a pre-dinner sandwich to eat while he's cooking, and sometimes makes a pre-pre-dinner sandwich-sandwich to eat while making the actual pre-dinner sandwich (actually this really makes me laugh grin)

I can't really think of anything else, in fact none of these things really annoys me. A list of his good points would be massive in comparison smile

SuckAtRelationships Thu 27-Jun-13 17:59:14

Awww, all this stuff is making me wish I had a DP to annoy me with cute little things sad

Funny thread. The waving thing is very sweet I think. I would love that!

bordellosboheme Thu 27-Jun-13 18:42:32

Oh the tea bag thing!! My dp leaves it inches from the recycling food caddy, along with the three empty egg shells he's had for breakfast...

Must admit I do the roof of mouth clicky thing though..... You can't help it literally..... And a tired hug sounds nice..... Mine just curls in ball in front of tv Shane tired and refuses to speak. Very antisocial!

bordellosboheme Thu 27-Jun-13 18:49:09

Newmumsuch fun..... Do we have the same dp? The empty box back in the cupboard trick happens here too!!!

And yes, sleeping a good 9 hours while we have 4 1/2 - not cool!

bouncyagain Thu 27-Jun-13 19:07:58

My ex dw used to sit there and scratch her lip in a faraway but anxious way. I couldn't stand it. Endlessly criticised me. Never said thank you or sorry. Always had to have the last word. Generally horrible. We are divorced now. New dp very different. smile

Mycatistoosexy Thu 27-Jun-13 19:14:56

Leaves the living room lights on overnight but dimmed right down. Why?

Says he'll wash up but income downstairs in the mining and it's still there.

Won't get off his bloody phone when meant to be playing with DS.

Completely zoned me out when I'm talkin about what he deems as boring.

Refuses to organise anythi

Aaargh I could go on but I'm getting all ragey and don't want to be stood in the drk later fuming as he comes through the door

Mycatistoosexy Thu 27-Jun-13 19:15:40

Bloody iPhone

Way too many spelling cock ups above sorry

Mum2Fergus Thu 27-Jun-13 19:38:18

Can't make a decision for himself...will procrastinate about everything until I say 'how about...' then he'll say 'yeah, that's what I was thinking'!

Cannot organise anything (except his golf!)

Hogs the remote.

Spaces between all his shirt hangers is exactly the same (until I have to sweep them all to one side...accidentally of course).

Is obsessed with how much space is left on the SKY+ box for recording. Generally always more than 50% but we still have to have the 'do you want to keep this (yes, thats why Ive pressed keep!) / have you watched this (does it say viewed next to it??)' conversation.

LOL

munkysea Thu 27-Jun-13 19:39:22

Oooh!

* Never tidies up after making a snack or dinner.
* Never puts his shoes away
* Plays with his iPad in bed when I'm trying to get to sleep and lights the room up.
* Offers to make dinner. Makes something then either a) ruins it by adding far too many birds eye chillis or b) annoys me no end by constantly asking me what to do, or to read the recipe out loud for him
* Asks me to help him do something, then takes over completely because I'm not quick enough, or not doing it right, then gets arsey if I wander off and do something else.
* Demands I help him with tasks, even if I'm in the middle of doing something else.
* The concept of getting on with something on his own quietly is completely alien to him!

Whogivesashit Thu 27-Jun-13 19:46:09

DH takes off his socks and puts them in his trouser pockets where they stay until I wash them. Takes off his work shirts without undoing the buttons .GRR!

If he puts on a shirt in the morning then decides he doesn't like it he will dump it on the floor, not hang it back up.

DonutForMyself Thu 27-Jun-13 21:39:16

Mum2fergus mine has an issue with the Sky planner too! Deletes all DS's prongs while he's asleep!

In fact, reading these, my DP does most of them, bless him!

My DH is generally lovely but does have some irritating habits including:

Leaving a little square of tissue that he's blown his nose on every morning on the back of the toilet cistern. He never puts it in the toilet or in the bin next to the loo. Every morning I go to use the loo after he's showered and there it is!!!!

Creates a mountain of dishes on the drainer after washing them, wont think to put away any dry ones first.

Leaves dirty laundry in a pile on the bedroom floor even though a laundry bag is hanging off the door inches from him.

Leaves pairs upon pairs of shoes on the kitchen floor - running shoes, work shoes, cycling shoes, trainers... I'm forever tripping over them!

He often listens to music on his laptop with headphones on. I'll try to say something, he'll ask me to repeat as he obviously hasn't heard. I'll say it again, he'll ask me to repeat yet again only this time taking his headphones off/muting the music. Why doesn't he just do that the first time????
Does the same thing at night with his ear plugs!!

Love him to bits but he does infuriate me sometimes!

mendandmakedo Thu 27-Jun-13 22:13:31

I wave at my DH but not at the dinner table its because he often has headphones on and can't hear me its a way to get his attention. He annoyingly leaves toe nail clipping on side of bath disgusting. He will also leave his shoes where he takes them off which is usually in the middle of a room.

carlajean Thu 27-Jun-13 22:17:13

great thread. We had a humongous row last night because, when I'm on the computer, he always asks me what I'm looking at, several times. the same row that we had two months ago, when he said he wouldn't do it again and here we go again.
There's not much that he does that drive me nuts, and they're all fairly minor, it just bugs me so much that he can't be bothered to stop them.

YoniBottsBumgina Thu 27-Jun-13 22:22:30

He FOLDS stuff when he puts it on the airer. Grrrrrr. Means everything takes about a week to dry when it dries in 1-2 days spread out properly.

Put my bin bags and recycling box out the back "to keep them out of the way" where they got raided by some local wildlife and split everywhere and I had to carry it through the house dripping everywhere.

I'm probably a million times more annoying in general though blush

Mixxy Thu 27-Jun-13 22:24:56

Scrapes every last sliver of yoghurt from the pot, resulting in both a frenzy of small scrapes and some long undulating ones from the near bone dry plastic pot. You want more yoghurt? There's another 20 of them in the fridge! Gah!

ICantRememberWhatSheSaid Thu 27-Jun-13 22:38:19

Mum2Fergus

Is obsessed with how much space is left on the SKY+ box for recording

My DH is OBSESSED with this. grin

He is never happier than when he is deleting things. My DD and I set up 'series record' for random programmes such as the Fishing shows, Gardeners World or Lords today. The more obscure the better. We then make a song and dance if he deletes them. grin

....Of course, 95% of the recorded programmes are his.

enormouse Thu 27-Jun-13 22:39:46

Never realises when the house is as mess.
Spends far too long messing about online/watching DVDs/doing sod all so as a result let's DS's mealtimes, baths and bedtime slide and happen when they may. Once he forgot to get lunch on and gave DS 3 digestive biscuits and 2 tubs of fruit puree.
Leaves everything out when he cooks.
Most of his annoying habits tend to stem from him being away with the fairies in is head. Drives me insane.

Oh and my favourite, when he does clear up or wash a few dishes he announces it like he's split the atom.

HighInterestRat Thu 27-Jun-13 22:42:42

Farts a lot in my presence, is messy around the house, can't spell, embarrasses me socially sometimes, works too much.

But I still love him obviously grin.

MrsEricBana Thu 27-Jun-13 22:51:29

My friend has lovely dh. I commented on something kind he had done and she said ` No he drives me mad actually`. I asked why and she said `He is SO annoying - he KEEPS asking me if I want a cup of tea!` grin

Needtostopbuyingcrap Thu 27-Jun-13 22:56:24

Mine covers the toilet in his own shit.
He picks his nose and eats it.
He falls asleep on the couch.
He picks scabs off his face.
When he drinks he snores and talks in his sleep.
He pesters me to make him a brew and never makes me one.
He doesn't floss.
He uses my expensive shampoo on his pubes.
He leaves skid marked underpants for me to wash.
He won't let me have the remote control.
He uses at least half a toilet roll when he uses the loo.

MrsWeasley Thu 27-Jun-13 23:04:37

meditrina I can relate to that. My DH breathes so loudly when asleep it actually stops me sleeping.
He also doesnt listen!!
There is an endless list really but if I start listing everything that he does to irritate me I would get RSI and be quite depressed lets just cover by saying Eveything! wink

anastaisia Fri 28-Jun-13 00:30:56

Finally asks ' shall I do dinner?' at about 7:30 when he's at ours. Then looks up brand new elaborate recipes that he's never cooked before. Then asks me if we have X or Y here to which I ALWAYS answer that I don't know because otherwise I get involved and end up doing almost as much as if I was cooking dinner. At which point I say it's so late that I'd just do beans on toast if it was just for me.

Only when I go round to his for tea at a reasonable time thinking he'll have made one of the dishes he keeps saying we should try he serves beans on toast confused

stottie Fri 28-Jun-13 01:41:21

Everything.

Littleballofhate Fri 28-Jun-13 01:46:50

Makes a ticking noise when he breathes. Only I can here it.

Littleballofhate Fri 28-Jun-13 01:47:22

Damn it! Only I can HEAR it!

abi2790 Fri 28-Jun-13 04:15:09

He hums really loudly in hid sleep angry.
Leaves tea stains everywhere.
Makes a mess as soon as I've cleaned up.

rockybalboa Fri 28-Jun-13 05:12:58

Sleeps with his fecking mouth open so breathes like Darth Vader. Drives in INSANE! Which is why I am sitting downstairs on the laptop at 5am because I might stab him if I stay upstairs in bed!!

Keztrel Fri 28-Jun-13 08:39:40

Is unable to open the curtains fully so I always have to finish opening them.

Worries too much about following rules to the letter, checks and double checks things.

Eats apples in my presence.

Keztrel Fri 28-Jun-13 08:50:38

Pointlessly brings up incredibly dull domestic stuff when we're out having a nice time, eg 'we should go to the tip soon' or 'we need more Persil'.

Oh dear.. thanks to you lot, next time DH is waving at me randomly in the house, instead of sitting quietly trying not to get the rage I'll be trying not to laugh!

widowerbutok Fri 28-Jun-13 12:20:51

I miss my wife very much, but oh dear I can see too many of my faults here...lol (ok isn't the remote a man only thing by law anyway?????)

ShowOfHands Fri 28-Jun-13 12:30:02

He holds things out to me when I can't take them. So he'll say 'tea?' and I'll say 'yes' of course and he makes it while I do dd's hair. And then he comes and holds it out to me while I'm mid-braid and have no hands with which to take it. Every single time I have to say 'can you perhaps put it down please'. It's everything. He brings things to me and holds them out.

And he claps. Just the once. When going from sitting to standing. Or on moving off from one room to the next.

That's about it.

I annoy him by putting his stuff away and wanting to talk at bedtime. I also fall asleep during films and then deny I've ever heard of them. This is very irritating.

Looksgoodingravy Fri 28-Jun-13 13:06:41

Every time he comes home he says " o'roight" in a brummie accent! I don't mind the brummie accent at all, it's just that dp isn't brummie and he does it EVERY time, over 17 years it begins to grate.

Looksgoodingravy Fri 28-Jun-13 13:09:29

Showofhands - the clapping of hands has just made me chuckle.

Lottapianos Fri 28-Jun-13 13:37:47

ShowofHands, I remember you talking about the clapping on another thread. It sounds grin but I could see why it would drive you crackers if you were living with it all day every day.

RobotBananas Fri 28-Jun-13 13:41:06

ShowOfHands - you've written about this before haven't you - I just felt the same surge of rage when you described the hand clapping.

Repetitiverobot Fri 28-Jun-13 13:43:31

This is a great thread...
- leaves socks on the floor on his side of the bed, about 5 pairs I found today. Then moans he had no clean socks!!
- bites his nails, annoying clicking noise...I just want to throw something at him
- complete inability to put dirty dishes/spoons in dishwasher or sink of soapy water. He puts it on the work top (which I've just wiped down) and not even in the sink of soapy water, yet god forbid he might think to actually wash!!! I left the dishwasher open with the drawer out the other day and he still put his plate on the work top next to it!!!!!! Grrrrr
- is never ever wrong. When he clearly is!!
- cannot take a s**t without leaving smears! Yuk
- farts all the time!
- also thinks its ok to describe the amount and consistency of his bowel movements! I DO NOT want to know.
- complains he's really tired, but stays up until 2am on his play station...I reminded him he is 36 not 16!
-- cannot have a cuddle without a wandering hand. Sometimes I'd like a cuddle, not to be felt up!
....the list goes on and on and on!!

Lottapianos Fri 28-Jun-13 13:44:52

Repetitiverobot, I'm worried that we might be living with the same man grin Absolutely feel your pain re socks on floor, poo and fart behaviour and wandering hands.

Repetitiverobot Fri 28-Jun-13 13:55:10

Lol it's all coming back to mr now!!
Also majorly obsessed with sky plus recording space, what is it with that!!?
And has to be praised when he emptied the dishwasher, or emptied the bin (without putting in a new bin bag I might add!)
But if I point out I do these things every day with out him praising me, then I should be grateful enough he's done it as it one less thing to do! What the actual f!!!!
Bloody men, it's reassuring to know I'm not the only unending driven insane by these things!

Lottapianos Fri 28-Jun-13 13:58:07

Yes yes to recording space on freeview box - and nearly all of the recorded stuff is his boring crap anyway!

The housework stuff is where we part ways I'm afraid - my DP does about 95% of the laundry and at least his share of everything else, and without a song and dance or act of martyrdom either smile

Lousmart Fri 28-Jun-13 13:59:42

Can't make decisions and answers every question with another question rather than an answer so he can delay the decision making process. Makes important decisions (like whether to buy a house or not) by tossing a coin confused

Snores.

Empties the kitchen bin, item by item, into the outside wheelie bin rather than waiting for kitchen bin to just be full.

Considers the task he's doing to be far more important than mine and expects to drop mine to help him.

Has selective hearing!

This is a great thread grin

Keztrel Fri 28-Jun-13 14:54:37

Another one here whose DH is obsessed with the recording space on the sky box! God forbid it should go over 70%!!! The world may end!

Tbh though I think he could list many many more things that are annoying about me.

Looksgoodingravy Fri 28-Jun-13 15:02:56

Dp has to cut the plug off every electrical item we've skipped. We have mountains of plugs and they'll never get used because new appliances come with them bloody on!

FacebookWanker Fri 28-Jun-13 15:15:04

Never ever puts anything back in its place, and then asks me where it is...and gets annoyed with me if I don't know.

Takes his shoes of and leaves them wherever he was standing so that I trip over them

Says he's going to do something and then doesn't do it. I've stopped believing him now...

FacebookWanker Fri 28-Jun-13 15:28:49

Lousmart - my DP does that too. I always have to stop what I'm doing to to and help him...and it's always something he could have easily done himself...grrr

ShowOfHands Fri 28-Jun-13 16:13:12

DH's hand clapping: Spreading anger across MN since 2005. Yes, I have mentioned it before. I have to mention it. Or I'd scream STOP THE FUCK CLAPPING LIKE A DEMENTED SEAL OR I WILL KILL YOU DEAD In. His. Face.

I mention it, I am able to remain calm with my beatific smile. See -> smile

RobotBananas Fri 28-Jun-13 16:56:14

You don't tell him!? shock

How on earth do you manage that. Only last night I yelled at DH for flapping his bloody legs around again. I am not known for my tolerance. I'd explode

Another sky plus fanatic here

"Have you watched this? Are you going to watch this? Who recorded this? There's only 32% left, what can we delete?"

Why? Are you planning on recording something in the next 3 minutes that will require 33% of space? No?

Then shut up.
The time it's taken you to go through every bloody program and ask 7 questions about it, I could have watched something off the planner, therefore freeing up your precious space

ShatnersBassoon Fri 28-Jun-13 17:08:16

God yes! Standing there with a drink instead of putting it down! How annoying that is. I was on the sewing machine the other evening desperately trying to finish a very last-minute costume, yet he stood there waiting for me to take the cup from him. It's really hard to shout "Put the bloody thing there, you gormless article!" when your mouth is full of pins.

DH also tries to get me to try food by waving a forkful so close to my face that I can't see what it is. Not tempting, and very bloody annoying.

ShatnersBassoon Fri 28-Jun-13 17:15:46

Oh yes, the constant Sky+ caretaking. Everything of mine is something I can get on demand so doesn't need to be cluttering up the planner, all of his stuff will never, ever be aired, ever again hmm. "Let's get this lot cleared down, eh?" makes my heart sink.

Another thing is when I say "What's on next?" and he gets the guide up and starts reading out every programme in a really bored voice, as if I can't read and that every option available is terrible so I'd better not choose any of them. Because he's got a backlog of MythBusters that needs 'clearing down' so he's commandeering the box for the whole evening.

urmydarlings Fri 28-Jun-13 17:23:24

Mine hangs his dirty socks on the worktop above the washing machine , like some kind of bloody trophy instead of shoving them in the machine!

RoadToTuapeka Fri 28-Jun-13 17:26:11

Bathroom floor is always covered in DH's body hair, sink with stubble after he's shaved, and enough water sploshed about that it looks like a hippo has passed our way.

Changes DS1 & 2's nappies happily enough but seems incapable of ever disposing of them...used nappies always left out!

Never opens DS1's curtains if he gets him up, and for some reason I hate walking into a dark room later on in the day.

At night when I have got up to get DS2 into our bed to feed him, like some sort of robot DH always turns over in his sleep to face me. DS2 at v easily distracted stage & stares at DH, I usually give him a slightly harder than necessary poke to make him turn over.

He is lovely generally, cooks more than me for starters!

UtterflyButterfly Fri 28-Jun-13 17:33:20

I think I might wave at DH tonight when we sit down to dinner and see what he says!

Several of the above apply in this house too - the nailbiting, leaving stubble in the sink (and last Sunday a pile of pubes on the bathroom floor - thanks for tidying your bits up, but then tidy the bits up) , asking me how to do something instead of reading instructions or looking at the manual. He also puts his knife in his left hand with his fork when he picks up his drink. FFS, no-one's going to steal your knife if you put it down. That one really annoys me as I'm a bit fussy about table manners.

BOF Fri 28-Jun-13 17:44:40

Honestly nothing. Except maybe leaving kitchen drawers and cupboard doors slightly open (why?), but even then I just smile because I can tell he was the last person in the kitchen. I like to think that if he died before me, he'd keep doing it just to say hello grin

Can't seem to shut cupboard doors properly. And by properly, I mean AT ALL.

Can't plan his time so he always leaves late for everything. Eg if you need to leave at 9.30 and you need 15 minutes in the bathroom, 5 minutes to iron a shirt, 5 minutes to get dressed and then 10 minutes for breakfast, you can't get up at 9.05. We missed a train last week because of his total inability to understand how long things take and how to work backwards from the time we need to leave by adding together the time taken to do the things he needs to do.

lowra Fri 28-Jun-13 17:57:45

Leaves his boxer shorts in the sink
Eats off his knife
Snores like a train
Drones on about boring subject
Massive know it all (as am I which can make life 'interesting')

I've just gone out to the kitchen to supervise see what happening with dinner and he's COOKING FUCKING POTATOES IN THE SMALLEST FUCKING SAUCEPAN.

Why why why?

He does this with pasta too. Fills it to the brim. IT WILL BOIL OVER YOU NUMPTY.

<breathe>

grin BoF.

Your DP is proper lovely. So's mine, really, I just need to train him out of this small-pan-weirdness.

Or train myslef out of caring...

sunnyshine Fri 28-Jun-13 18:02:33

Plates on side, not in dishwasher

Asks where his clothes are ( in the ironing pile that he is meant to do weekly but often does monthly or less)

Can't remember where he puts anything then I get accused of losing it/moving it.

Says our house looks like a bombs hit it ( it doesn't at all) but does nothing about the small mess

Thinks putting your clothes away means putting them in my reading chair in the bedroom

I could go on..... And on......

Bowlersarm Fri 28-Jun-13 18:06:46

Can't stop laughing at NotGoodNotBads DH randomly waving at her. It's made my day grin. Hahahahhahha....

Breathes! jokes

headlesslambrini Fri 28-Jun-13 18:25:38

Power tools. Need i say anymore? I will ask DH to tighten something up for me - 1screw, and the next thing i know the cordless drill driver comes out then the battery needs charging. Its only 1 bloody screw, a screw driver is more than adequate to do the job

BOF Fri 28-Jun-13 18:31:49

I think I just have rather slatternly standards, Eleanor grin

FunLovinBunster Fri 28-Jun-13 18:35:32

Everything.

sunnyshine Fri 28-Jun-13 18:35:59

Can't not mention the sky planner either. Gets all upset If less than 60%. I record nothing in HDTV, him everything in HDTV!! It's him taking up the space not me!!

Repetitiverobot Fri 28-Jun-13 18:42:05

Oh yes! Another one who is very happy to point out that the house is in a mess yet will never in a million years think to clean it himself!!!
His idea of tidying the toys away is pushing them into one pile next to the toy box...next to it!! Ffs

GroupieGirl Fri 28-Jun-13 19:07:18

The curtains! Ye Gods, the curtains!! He NEVER opens the bedroom curtains, and only one in the living room. Why?!

Leaves the oven on. It's a fan, how can you not realise?

De-hairs the shower plug; then leaves the gunk on the side for me to carry two feet to the bin.

Forgets that he doesn't have a KP at home (is a chef) and thus uses EVERY pot, pan, plate and surface when cooking.

ModreB Fri 28-Jun-13 19:59:44

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. angry

But, I love him anyway grin

Teaandflapjacks Fri 28-Jun-13 21:39:44

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. grin

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. confused

Ledkr Fri 28-Jun-13 22:04:59

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 grin

Absolutelylost Fri 28-Jun-13 23:08:49

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!!

BOF Fri 28-Jun-13 23:09:20

Tea, I've heard it the other way round, but I guess it comes full circle in the end grin

Teaandflapjacks Sat 29-Jun-13 11:45:25

BOF Quite right - I think maybe it depends on if they are to with 'bodily functions' or not grin

HandMini Sat 29-Jun-13 11:50:11

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.

Nagoo Sat 29-Jun-13 12:21:22

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.

BabyStone Sat 29-Jun-13 12:41:20

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 angry

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 hmm

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...

HandMini Sat 29-Jun-13 13:15:52

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.

DonutForMyself Sat 29-Jun-13 13:42:59

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!

DonutForMyself Sat 29-Jun-13 13:44:06

These are so funny, they're all as bad as each other aren't they?!

Ledkr Sat 29-Jun-13 13:55:56

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.
grin I am also more intolerant though.

Repetitiverobot Sat 29-Jun-13 21:53:01

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

Theselittlelightsofmine Sat 29-Jun-13 21:59:15

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 confused

KittyTwatknicker Sun 30-Jun-13 09:02:24

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!

Salbertina Sun 30-Jun-13 14:00:49

Fungal toe infection... Still! After years
Back fat
Back hair
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
angryangry

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 biscuit

Salbertina Sun 30-Jun-13 14:10:13

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 hmm

Sodapop55 Sun 30-Jun-13 14:33:19

- 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.

mrsyattering Sun 30-Jun-13 14:33:26

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 angry

mrsyattering Sun 30-Jun-13 14:38:21

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 eitherangry

Mockingcurl Sun 30-Jun-13 14:48:18

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

LillyGoLightly Sun 30-Jun-13 15:09:34

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!
