    Things your spouse/sig other do that annoy you

    Saw this in another forum and the responses were a hoot.

    Inability to tell a story briefly. My wife will tell you things like the color of the cashier's shirt and the price of eggs in China all while just trying to explain that she went to the grocery store. "Brevity is the sole of wit" she has never heard of.

    Posting pictures publicly solely based on how SHE looks. Oh nevermind that my eyes were closed and there's a big pizza stain on my white shirt in that photo. Sure, make that your new facebook profile pic because you look stunning.

    Driving to the neighbor's house. I mean the NEXT DOOR neighbors house. I could hit it with a baseball or walk the maybe 200 feet before you are even out of the garage. Just walk!!!!!

    "Junk drawers" Every house has a "junk drawer." We have one in every room of the house that she refuses to clear out. When I say every room, I mean the guest bedroom, half bath, laundry room, all of them.

    Texting. If I don't respond in 90 seconds, she will resend her text and is pissed. If she doesn't respond to me promptly, she was "busy" and it's not an issue to her.

    Mine will ask me about a new dress or top. I can't just say it's nice, I have to use the exact adjectives she wants me to use, like stylish, or cute, or sexy, and will keep clueing me in until I get it right, basically telling me what I need to say. Then when I finally say the right words, she asks, "Do you really mean it, or are you just saying it?"

    Things my spouse does that annoy me:

    Will occasionally spend money like a drunken sailor on shore leave.

    Has no idea why she is crying. There has to be a reason.

    Her taste in t.v. shows is the worst.

    Leaving lights on in rooms she is not in, or hasn't been in for some time.

    She drives like Kyle Petty on cocaine.

    My wife will trim her cuticles with her teeth when we watch TV. The noise drives me to drink.

    Gets outta bed in the morning.

    She will drive like five miles away to save fifty cents on a gallon of milk.

    She wont stop calling mens clothes "outfits".

    She comments about my weight as she brings unhealthy food in the house by the boat load.

    She loves to rent movies but ALWAYS falls asleep half way through them.

    She wont stock up on toilet paper, batteries or light bulbs like I tell her to. Hey you will use them one day.

    She usually always leaves a bag of groceries at the check out lane because she is in such a hurry to leave, so I have to go back and get it.

    Throws away cool souvenier cups i collect from stadiums I have went to and still go to over the years. She tried replacing them with tiny cutesy drinking glasses instead of the good size plastic ones I like. She lost that one.

    If we are in a store or needs help she refuses to ask for help. If we are out with no GPS she wont ask for directions while this is one guy who will.

    My wife missed her calling as a drivers ed teacher, constantly critiquing my driving.

    Watches the same shows over and over but will yell at me for watching Cool Hand Luke for the 10th time.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I love everything about my wife. Nothing she does (like punching me in the back of the head while I type this) bothers me.

    No, that would be MY spouse. Rather, Law and Order: SVU. I think he's got a thing for Mariska Hargitay, but won't admit it.

    I won't admit to anything in a public forum.

    She has friends. Everywhere.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Re: Things your spouse/sig other do that annoy you

    My wife has three purses, all stuffed with pens, receipts, USB drives, thimbles, an unimaginable mess of found things and detritus that makes them impossibly complicated to find anything in.

    Our van has one key because an extra is $250. We have a drawer into which all keys are placed- house keys, boat keys, shed keys- except when she uses them, in which case they are placed in one of her three purses.

    Then, when I'm looking for the van key, I say, "Hey Hun, where's the van key."
    She answers, "It's in my purse."
