What annoying habit does your DH/DP have?

* Unloads a dirty dishwasher
* Puts half-full cups of coffee on the top rack of a clean dishwasher (ie one that's finished its cycle and is waiting to be unloaded) so that it spills down onto the clean plates
* Snores like a puffing billy
* Always puts the golf on the TV
* "Doesn't see the washing up" unless it's in the sink and I've walked him to it and put a dishcloth in his hand
* Weeds the garden and pulls up all the seedlings that I've carefully nurtured
* breathes

Other than that, I quite like him.

Bites his nails and then sits there chewing them and it's really loud, drives me mad!

mine moans im on mumsnet too long so when i shut down the puter and sit next to him to watch telly he promptly falls asleep on the sofa
sounds like a whale in pain when he blows his nose
soaks the kitchen floor when he washes up so i get wet feet
leaves the bedroom curtains shut (he gets up after me)
love him though

One of my husband's favourite words is 'thingy'. Then he wonders why I don't know what he's talking about

Seriously though, mine is a bed hog, clips nails and leaves the bits on the floor, doesn't put stuff in bin, recycling bag, sink, etc, doesn't rinse the sink after brushing teeth or shaving, does things SLOOOOOWLY and when he tries to move quickly just ends up knocking stuff over! He also sometimes does this weird old lady voice when DD1 is getting tantrummy. Sometimes it really is a good job that he's very attractive with a big willie!

Leaves one sheet of toilet paper on the roll.

Takes about a year to go to the toilet.

Other then that he's pretty perfect grin

ROFL at Cliffdiver

Insists he's always right, even when I show him Google proof... "Just because it's not on the internet doesn't mean I'm wrong... it just isn't on the internet." hmm

Puts dirty things on top of clean things or on the bench where I prepare food

Doesn't put lids on properly

Sits with his headphones on, so he can't hear me talking to him.
Washes the dishes with his headphones on, watching the screen at the same time.
He's quite light footed around the house, which isn't annoying, but he has a stim where he rubs his hands together, which makes me want to spit nails when he does it and I don't know he's right behind me.

It's our 11th anniversary, tomorrow, so we rub along together quite well really.

Asking me if I'm ok/do I want anything. Over and over again in case I've changed my mind. He'd hammer Mrs Doyle in a tea-off.

UngratefulMoo Wed 24-Jun-15 21:18:45

Has good intentions that he can't stick to - mainly around time, eg: "i'll only be an hour", "i'll be back by 9", "i'm leaving now", "I want us ready and out the door by 8am". Always need to add at least an hour, sometimes more. I still haven't learnt and it stresses me out as I'm usually pretty prompt.

AnyFucker Wed 24-Jun-15 21:21:09

he blows on his cuppa tea before he sips it

why, in God's name, why

crumblybiscuits Wed 24-Jun-15 21:21:37

Picks his nose!

KayAdams Wed 24-Jun-15 21:23:29

Because his Gran used to? AnyFucker

lastqueenofscotland Wed 24-Jun-15 21:24:41

Faffs oh my god " are you ready" get half way out the door decides on a different coat/shoes. I've had to pick outfits for him before as he couldnt decide on an identical Jean/shirt combo...

He also thinks out loud too. A continuation of the faffing!!!

When we watch quiz shows, if a particularly easy one comes up, or if he knows it from his "specialist subject", he will just shout out the answer and "next!" dimissively. Sounds silly, but makes him sounds like a know-it-all twat, I've had to pull him up on it.

If we are walking, and the road gets narrower, he will stop really quickly to "let" me go first, but of course, I end up stopping -andcrashingintohim- leading to me spending the the next ten mins ranting about being a chauvantist pig. Poor git, he's only trying to be polite I know grin.

Won't make any decsion unless I break it down into 2-3 specific choices (that's ok, means I can gently direct him to what I think best).

Gets very irrate about Wales/Scotland politics, leading to hours of arguments.

Snores like a monster, especially when - he has a cold, hayfever, is within a 2 mile radius of dust, because it's Tuesday, etc.

I swear his wallet is superglued shut.

However, as 'annoying' as he is, I really don't know how he puts up with me at times. I'm a gobshite control freak, but I think I balance him out. I think he's brilliant, anyway - the good most certainly outweights everything else by a very long way.

MrsGentlyBenevolent Wed 24-Jun-15 21:27:46

Strikeout fail! Sorry...

itsnothingoriginal Wed 24-Jun-15 21:28:21

Throat clearing - it's so sooooo loud!

He just seems to have a permanent cold. Does anyone else's DH have this???!

Bullshitbingo Wed 24-Jun-15 21:29:20

Slouches all over the couch. The man cannot sit up straight, don't know why but it drives me irrationally barmy!

He also snores, picks at his nails, and refuses to sort out the dry skin on his feet even though he looks like someone who has no shoes (lots of hard skin, eugh).
Constantly scratching his balls in bed. I do love him, but I find him gros quite a lot of the time. I withhold telling him all this too much because I don't want him to point out my annoying habits!

MamaLazarou Wed 24-Jun-15 21:32:14

He drinks really loud. I don't mean slurping (I've trained him out of that) but the actual swallowing bit is really loud and gulpy, like a frog.

KayAdams Wed 24-Jun-15 21:33:44

Mama - PMSL.

BlackNoSugar Wed 24-Jun-15 21:35:20

Getting ready to go out, he only has to shower and dress and he's good to go. I'm doing makeup and making sure I have things I need in my handbag, plus hurrying along teenage DD who can't decide what jacket goes with her outfit. DH has decided that as he's been ready for 10 minutes and I've now come downstairs I must be ready to go (even though I haven't got my shoes on yet) and he opens the front door and stands there, car keys in hand.

Neighbours always know if we're going out because at some point there'll be a yell of "SHUT THE BLOODY DOOR I'M NOT READY YET".

Bair Wed 24-Jun-15 21:37:18

Pretends he doesn't understand the thermostat. He does, and he uses it. He just does a Jez from Peep Show as he knows it grinds my gears.

I leave crumbs in the bed.

ChanandlerBongsNeighbour Wed 24-Jun-15 21:38:13

Is the loudest most extravagantly over the top vomiter that I've ever heard! Anyone hearing him would surely think he's being tortured/murdered, I can't actually do justice to the noise with mere words!! Its actually HILARIOUS!! (have had to leave the room/muffle my laughter on many occasions!!!)
