    Default One thing that your spouse or partner does that drives you crazy

    Drives me crazy when hubby uses a new roll when he goes bathroom. I know TMI. But it really drives me crazy he has OCD and this is a big issue for him.
    I would say i drive him crazy when it comes to changing things in the cabinets in the kitchen. Always trying to make more room.

    After being reminded at LEAST 3 times a week for 21 years my hubby still will NOT close the shower curtain after a shower. He leaves it all bunched up on end of the tub. The water can't drain off of it and then it tends to mildew. I know it's a small stupid thing, but it drives me crazy!

    My husband is always up and off to work before I get up with the kids, and it drives me BONKERS he leaves the cupboards all open. I don't know why, I just hate seeing the cupboards open and all their contents as soon as I blearily stumble into the kitchen first thing in the morning. I try to leave the kitchen tidy before we go to bed, I like it to be so when I start the day as well.

    HAH! that is my DH who insists the cabinet doors stay CLOSED!!

    Here is what he does that drives me nuts.

    DH - Are you going downstairs soon?
    ME - Well, sometime today.
    DH - In the next few minutes?
    ME - WHAT DO YOU WANT??!!

    He won't come out and ask, could you get me such and such from downstairs (his office and bath are in the cellar). Just tiptoes around it. I should say he is disabled and usually makes only one trip a day down and up the cellar stairs.

    :-) I'm with those of you who could name a handful of things just as easily as naming one thing!

    For some reason, my DH:
    ~ won't throw away the little cardboard tube from an empty TP roll...he'll just leave it on the bathroom counter with that little scrap of TP that never completely comes off the roll.
    ~ will NOT put the cap back on his can of shaving gel, leaving a lovely blue ring on the bathroom counter.
    ~ won't eat leftovers.
    ~ irons his jeans (even if they're freshly out of the dryer with no perceptible wrinkles).
    ~ never thinks to rinse out his dishes, leaving all manner of stuck-on messes for me to scrape off!

    I could go on, but this gives you an idea!

    Other than his insane loading of the dishwasher (bowls & cups right side up so they don't drain, dishes scattered about the entire rack with no hint of organization)

    and the water splashes and droplets that he leaves around the kitchen & bath sinks ~

    I really can't complain about my DH either.... (well, his snoring.... but that's not really his fault) so I won't hold that one against him....

    Good thing it's not him responding to this thread - I am sure he could write an entire book about me ~ lol
