After 4 years together he still only brings me a fork when he cooks (which is rare in itself)...surely by now he should know that I use a knife as well as a fork to eat?
Every single time I have to ask for a knife and every single time he huffs and puffs about itgrin Tut.

Mine gives me a spoon for curry.

No, no, no.

My dh uses only a fork as well, he generally remembers but I have to remind him sometimes that I use a knife as well. We've been together over 14 years and 6 yo ds1 can remember when he sets the table!

My DP only gives me a fork and not a knife too and we've been together 13 years. He also still gives 10-year-old DD a teaspoon to eat cereal or soup with, seemingly unaware that she's no longer a toddler.

Which hairdresser I go to and where it is. I've used the same one for about 5 years and we always chat about it as i usually go from one extreme colour or style to the next so its obvious when I've been. He always asks where it is and how long it will take to get back etc etc so annoying!!

My DH is also a fork only person. Occasionally he asks if I'll want a knife. Yes. To CUT my food with.

DH every time .. "tut, who uses a knife to eat, you only need a fork!"

"Meeeeee! ME Your wife of 4 years, aaaahh!"

StealthPolarBear Fri 23-Jun-17 21:29:32

Every time I open a tin of tuna and want to scrape it out in ask dh for a spoon and am handed a fork.

That Shepard's Pie is not my favourite meal, has never been my favourite meal and will never ever be my favourite meal. Which is why I never cook it or eat it .

And breathes.

How to make a decent cup of tea... I'm from Yorkshire & find this highly offensive. Not really sure why I married him tbh hmm

howthelightgetsin Fri 23-Jun-17 21:34:32

That I hate and will not eat peas.

MaisyPops Fri 23-Jun-17 21:41:28

Whereas I love Shepherd pie and it's one of my favourite meals and DH should really suck it up and cook it for me once in a whilegrin

(He doesn't hate it. He just isn't fussed on it and would rather have something else)

That after 20 years, I have no interest in watching Glastonbury.
I like camping. I like live music. If I'm there. I do not want to watch it.

Not every meal requires potatoes. Sometimes rice or pasta are perfectly acceptable alternatives. And I did not need an Irish cookbook for Mother's Day - just because he is a stereotypical Irish man. He can cook that stuff if he likes, I prefer cooking Italian or Caribbean cuisine.

My birthday. Every time it comes up in conversation he asks me "when is your birthday again?" Or "how old are you?"

Seven years we've been together hmm

SunnyCoco Fri 23-Jun-17 21:50:24

I only get a fork too!
Even though he has both a knife and a fork
What's going on??!

mailfuckoff Fri 23-Jun-17 21:51:24

Where my parents love. We've been together 15 years and he still forgets what junction on the motorway to use. The man has no internal map

StumpyScot92 Fri 23-Jun-17 21:51:57

I'll swap you. My DP tries to give me a knife and fork for pizza. And I don't mean fancy sloppy pizza I mean Domino's haha.

He also had a panic when we first moved in together when he realised we didn't own any cake forks the first night we had dessert... Yes dear... Normal forks work just as well.

Cupcake1315 Fri 23-Jun-17 21:52:26

I only eat with a fork 🙈. I use to pass my ex only a fork and he'd make a song and dance of it. I can't speak for all but back home in the Caribbean my family mainly ate with a fork. My kids however need a knife to eat everything, guess they take after their dad.

Resentment over trivialities. That's Mumsnet.

Gobletofgin Fri 23-Jun-17 21:53:41

Not to eat pork scratchings or anything at all that needs chewing whilst sitting next to me, i will have to go in the other room to get away from the rage inducing noise angry

LittleWitch Fri 23-Jun-17 21:54:08

That when I say "don't buy me a present" I mean "don't buy me a present." I don't mean "get me some random shit because you'll feel guilty if you don't buy me a present even though I've specifically said that".

Thebookswereherfriends Fri 23-Jun-17 21:54:45

All these men only eating with forks - do they not struggle a bit with steak or a chicken breast? My dp is the opposite, in that he will get knives out even when one clearly is not needed e.g. a lentil or chickpea curry.

I don't want to go camping ever again.👎🏻
I don't like vinegar and never will. It's been 21 years, you should know.
I no longer pretend to be interested in tractors and the like.🙄
I'm not the same pretty people pleaser you started out with 21 years ago.😈
