to find my lovely wife's tissue habit a bit minging

So, my lovely wife has this habit with tissues. Used tissues that is or ones that "still have some space on them" as she says. They find their way everywhere - it started off under the pillows and up the sleeves but there has been an unwelcome development. With late pregnancy a sizeable cleavage has emerged - hey presto a perfect new storage site. Back me up ladies, surely this is over the line - a bit too minging, isn't it?

Are you my DH?

so you ever leave the toilet seat up?
miss a bit with your pee?
fart in bed?
leave your socks all over the house?
fiddle with your nuts whilst watching tv?
if not then YANBU

she is telling you her boobs are OFF LIMITS.

Sorry. I'm with your wife on this one. grin

Ergh that does sound a bit grim. Buy her some lovely handkerchiefs?

LaWeaselMys Thu 11-Nov-10 21:56:14

If so, I agree with your DH... Sorry!

I'm not married to my DP otherwise I'd be posting what ghouls did.

I used to keep biscuit crumbs down my pregnancy cleavage.

YANBU that is minging!

Not best placed to answer this one as I am guilty. My dh hates it too if that helps.

MrsBuble Thu 11-Nov-10 21:59:12

YABU she (and I) are just being economical.

NiceBloke Thu 11-Nov-10 21:59:16

Mimsy, guilty on nearly all charges - I think the toilet seat is the only one of those which I have a perfect record on. And she's much more guilty of the third charge.

Hassled Thu 11-Nov-10 21:59:41

It could be worse. She could leave them on the carpet on her side of the bed <looks at DH>.

Find some yacky habit that you have (we all have them) and promise to give it up if she starts binning her tissues after one use.

Me too, DH hates my tissue habits. I lay the blame squarely at the door of my mother.

Nikna Thu 11-Nov-10 22:02:02

My Dh leaves piles of tissues that "still have some space on them" where ever he empties his pockets. ie; all over the bedroom. Saving them for reuse. BIN THEM!

AntonDuBurk Thu 11-Nov-10 22:02:06

Hassled. Are you me? Does our DH also leave his used tissues in our car?

Hassled Thu 11-Nov-10 22:03:11

He does indeed . And sometimes he blows his nose while I am eating.

NotShortImFunSized Thu 11-Nov-10 22:03:16

Another guilty one here. I agree she is just being economical grin

YABU sorry!

Meow75 Thu 11-Nov-10 22:03:30

Recommendations are currently that a clean tissue is used to blow one's nose.

And handkerchieves are gross. Too put snotty hankies in your pocket or up your sleeve is gross.

My dh complains about this too blush

NiceBloke Thu 11-Nov-10 22:04:41

Seems like a good 50% or more of you guys admit to this. OK, I'll let her off. I certainly am not short of the odd unappealing habit myself.

mayorquimby Thu 11-Nov-10 22:06:26

that is fucking disgusting. yanbu
