For those of us who have been married for some time, and realize we are past the stage where any other woman would want us (except the wife), what are some of the quirks and idiosyncrasies that you female better half does that drive you nuts!
(you women can start your own thread )
She's a neat freak!
This woman could have cleaned up Chernobyl in about a week and left no sign of radioactivity.
I've been married to her for almost 25 years -she doesn't clean - she sterilizes! This woman can be walking through a room and see a turd hanging off the back of an ant's butt (that's if ants were allowed in the house). She's got super-vision.
I've learned to live with it because I know there is no hope for me. But I'm concerned about the other inmates (kids). Every Saturday morning is cleaning day. The kids wish they had school. She has a routine for every one of them, and it's Stalag 13 with Colonel Klink walking through with the spectacle and white glove.
Me? I'm like Sgt Schultz sitting over in the corner saying "I know nothing, nothing!"
Cinderella had it better with the evil sisters and step-Mom.
Dishes have to be put into the dishwasher a certain way.
Laundry has to be folded a specific way and placed properly in the drawers.
The towels and washclothes have to sorted and stored according to color.
It reminds me of boot camp!
We have the cleanest house in the country, and yet, she still calls it a mess.
You walk in the door and the brillance and smell of Pine Sol overcomes most visitors.
Her Mom and sisters are this way too, so I think it is hereditary.
