Pet Peeves

6 Oct

After being married for a little over two years, I feel like we’re no longer newlyweds. Those little things that my husband does, which never bothered me before, are now starting to get on my nerves. I know I do things that bug him, as well. That’s what marriage is about, right? Not loving someone despite their flaws, but because of them.

Here are a few things my husband does that drive me up the wall:

1. Leaving clothes on the bathroom floor and shoes/socks in the living room.
2. Not actively listening (looking somewhere else, doing something else).
3. Taking bites of food off the plate or out of the pan in the kitchen before sitting down at the table to eat.
4. Leaving food out on the counter and forgetting to put it back in the refrigerator.
5. If he starts telling me something, and I tell him I already know (what a movie is about, for example), he’ll keep explaining it instead of just stopping.

Am I perfect? Heck no! Do I make messes and leave my crap everywhere? Yes. For some reason, though, it doesn’t bother me when I do it. Ha.

Here are a few things I do that I know my husband can’t stand:

1. Use too much toilet paper and leave a tail hanging off the roll.
2. Hog the computer.
3. Talk to him like a child.
4. Brake things I can’t fix (like the garbage disposal last night right before our friends came over for dinner).
5. Everything about the way I drive.

What are your pet peeves? What do you think you do that annoys others?

    I can TOTALLY relate! My husband is also guilty of #1, 2 and 4 on the list of things that bug you. Another thing he does is that when he does the dishes in the sink, he doesn't rinse the sink of food when he is done. So I have to deal with STUCK cheese and other food bits! But I must admit that I am also guilty of #1 (I'll have to tell him I'm not the only one who does this!) and 3.

    Haha. These are all great! I am guilty of not actively listening. I swear my husband has the ability to multitask and fully absorb a conversation. Unless I am LITERALLY doing nothing but staring at a person and listening to them, it's in one ear and out the other. So that bugs him a lot (rightfully so). I think I annoy my husband way more than he annoys me. That's sick. Seriously. He is SO NORMAL. And tidy. It bothers me. Oh, hey, OK, so there's my pet peeve. Too normal.
