Things that drive you crazy about your SO

When DH and I got married, he moved into the house about 6 months before the wedding. We had gotten many gifts and things were inboxes and set up.

I thought DH had thrown the boxes away. A year later, to my horror, I found every stinking box, plastic bag, and packing peanut in the attic. DH said he was saving them "in case we had to return something."

I cleaned the attic out myself when he was working.

That was over 20 years ago. We're cleaning out the basement and he saw me leaving with an empty box for the recycling bin. He said, "Wait, that's the box for ___." Yeah, it is, but that thing was out together over 5 years ago. It would never fit back in the box and we certainly aren't returning it.

Re: Things that drive you crazy about your SO

I used to be like your DH. There was always "what if" and "the second I throw it away I'm going to need it" (which was usually the case). I'm getting better.


*disclaimer - DH and I moved 10 times in the first 10 years of our marriage. I really did use those boxes, plastic, and packing peanuts at first.

Re: Things that drive you crazy about your SO

One of my missions this year is to rid my loft of this very same junk that stbx left me with!

Re: Things that drive you crazy about your SO

My DH likes to leave used paper towels lying around the kitchen. He will be in the middle of cooking something and use a paper towel to dry or clean something, and then just set it down on the counter. That happens repeatedly until there are paper towels all over! I start throwing them away, and he tells me he wasn't done using them. oh well, at least he helps with the cooking!

Re: Things that drive you crazy about your SO

Another pet peeve... DH prefers to do things himself. He went out at 8AM to shovel. He didn't wake YDS to help. He does this all.the.time! The little princes stay in bed while he works.

Shopping... Normally I don't mind it too much, but I just don't understand why she HAS to look at EVERYTHING!
