Little things that bug you like crazy...

OK - only 1 rule - you can only post one little irritation:

My DH uses an electric toothbrush as he would a normal one - but he just whizzes it round his mouth, scrubbing as he goes [ruining the brush head] and with his mouth wide open so it spatters toothpaste all over the mirror and the shower screen next to the sink. And for nowhere near the 2 minutes the timer is set for. No wonder his teeth are cr&p.

how dare he use an electronic toothbrush for anything except cleaning thr windows. I say hang him the delinquent

How about just tell him it ‘bugs you like crazy’
Maybe he thinks your teeth are crap too

DH and DS putting the shampoo upside down even when its full i.e not trying to get the drops out so when you open it tonight it shampoo is all over the inside of the cap and some times leaks out over the side of the bath. If it was meant to be stored that way they would have printed the label the other way up!!!

SoggyBiscuits: maybe he does hate my teeth! I haven't told you how I use mine, but it's not what tonicgingingintonic said!

Bunnybigears: mine are the ones who won't put them upside down when they are reaching the dregs!

When people say they 'havent got time' to do something (maybe something like exercise or keep their house clean). It really grinds my gears because they probably have got time they just choose to use that time for something else!!

And the fact it drives me made drives my husband even more mad (mainly cos he's the worst culprit!!)

Though I don't consider it a little thing, those who are late do.

I love gin and coupons

Shit teaspoons.
And shit knives and forks as well. Those teaspoons that feel really cheap and thin, and scrape the bottom of the cup.
We've got a few items of cutlery I refuse to use. I'm always tempted to throw them in the bin.

BluTangClan: I get that one - kind of! DH and 3 DSs have big hands and hate cheap light cutlery

When you just finished washing up and DH comes along with a cup and bungs it by the sink.
