Tiny things that make YBVVVVVU

Guest came over at the weekend. Tipped out the last of the cup of tea she’d made for herself into the sink as we were saying our goodbyes, aong with the teabag. Left the teabag sat there in the plug hole.

Right. There. In the plug hole.

I know, I know, who cares, just fish it out and throw it away when she’s gone, but I momentarily had visions of stuffing said teabag up one of her nostrils in revenge.

Help reassure me that I am not alone in my insanity. What tiny, ridiculous, non-things give you the murdrous rage?

Tea bag related also - catching dh squeezing my tea bag out - with his fucking fingers..
We have been together over 5 years - am I gonna live??

dh refusing to take a bin up to the bathroom.

Putting the mug on the counter above the dishwasher. Not in the dishwasher, not looking or asking if the dishwasher is full, just putting the fucking mug on the fucking counter.

Every time this happens I hurl the mug out the window and stuff the offender in the dishwasher on a heavy pots and pans cycle. In my mind.

It drives me beyond unreasonable when people leave time on the microwave - you know, like when they take their food out with 3 seconds left to go and then don't clear the time off. Either let it run that extra 3 seconds or clear the time. It's not that hard!! <muttermutterbastardsmuttermutter>

When I load the cutlery in the dishwasher basket I like all the knives together , all the forks together, etc etc, DH puts them all in randomly in the basket, he's usually left for work when I get to unload it (Just as well)

Treading in something wet and getting a wet sock. I can't bear it!!

Callmekitten this actually gives me the rage. I can't even explain why.

Pressing the button for the lift/traffic light when it’s already been pressed angry. You don’t have superior pressing skills you wally.

Socks. Socks make me undeniably stabby. The DCs come in from school and put their shoes, coats and bags away nicely. They then prance about throwing their socks everywhere and anywhere, leaving them there to be eaten by our idiot spaniel who then shits them out on the (previously lovely) John Lewis rug.

YABVU to call that a tiny thing. It's a HUGE thing.

I have an irrational dislike of people just dumping washing up in the bowl instead of on the surface beside the sink. What earthly use is it? You have to take it out again when you want to fill the bowl to do the washing up so that you can wash things in the right order.

I am probably a bit PA about this as DH puts things in the bowl as he is cooking and I quietly go up and take them out again and stack them.

I particularly hate it if I am doing the washing up and somebody dumps something straight in to the bowl. TAKE THE FUCKER OUT AND PUT IT DOWN THERE!!

It might stem from cookery lessons at school when we had to factor in washing up time at the end of the lesson and there were always some cheeky mares who would prance around cooking until the last minute and then just expect to dump all their washing up on those people who had allowed themselves clearing up time.

My partner asking if the stuff in the dish washer is clean of not, when we have both been in all day.
I'm not queen of the friggin dish washer, just open it and have a look!

My latest guest made a sandwich on the kitchen work surface even though I put a cutting board out for her and then brushed crumbs from the work surface onto the floor with her hand and left them there.

phoenix1973 Tue 20-Feb-18 16:37:55

The stuff above the dishwasher drives me mad. I unload the bloody thing, all they need to do is put stuff in without me having to say "dishwashers free!" 🙄🙄
Wet towels on the floor. Dirty. Or on my side of the bed. Wet bed.
Toothpaste globs in their sink. Why? My sink never has them.
Listening to racing car vids loudly on you tube. Wear headphones or turn it down.
Leaving the sitting room door open. Put peg in hole, it's freezing.

Amonk3ysButler Tue 20-Feb-18 16:38:09

Dh asking if I need anything doing AFTER I've finished doing things! Dc leaving toothpaste in the sink angry people who don't replace the loo roll, oh my list could carry on and on...

Coat hangers angry

IfeelFloopy Tue 20-Feb-18 16:39:01

Clothes being left on top of the (not full) laundry basket.

Shoes/slippers kicked off and abandoned right in the doorway.

shock

Crapuccino Tue 20-Feb-18 16:41:07

correct people who use the floor as an actual bin - you’re legally allowed to strangle those people.

Gatehouse77 Tue 20-Feb-18 16:42:06

People who don't stack the dishwasher from the back forwards. Particularly the cutlery basket.

That's DH. He did it once when the PILs were here and when I said something, MIL piped up "Oh it's all right..." IN MY HOUSE!

THAT IS WHY HE DOES IT MIL!

People who fill the sink with dishes, add washing up liquid, run the hot tap to fill the sink ready to wash the dishes......... Except no. They leave a sink full of water and dishes to go cold and unwashed meaning I then have to empty the sink and refill it with hot water and wash them anyway!!!! Why do half a bloody job?! Either finish what you start or don't bloody bother!

Dirty clothes on top of or next to washing basket not in it
