So in no particular order here are:
MY TOP 5 OH PET HATES
1). Dirty Washing Why is it that despite the fact that I clearly have a dirty washing pile in our bathroom, my OH insists on leaving his dirty laundry on the bedroom floor! I have asked him time after time to bring it downstairs to the bathroom but it's to no avail! Sometimes he asks me where an item of his clothing is and I will say that it probably hasn't been washed because it wasn't left in the right place! Grrrrr!
2). Wet Towels A bit like the pet hate above, why does my OH have to leave his wet towel on the bedroom floor or in the bedroom on the bed or hanging over the bannister? We have a heated towel rail in our bathroom to keep our towels dry, nothing like that exists in our bedroom! If I don't fetch his towel from upstairs then he uses mine and then we need up with two damp towels left in then wrong room! Grrr!
3). His Alarm When my OH sets his alarm it really annoys me that he then has to have it on snooze for up to half an hour! I get woken up at the first alarm sound and ok, I may doze off again but by the time the second one has gone off I am well and truly awake! It's not so bad if his alarm is set anytime from 7am as I have to get up anyway, but when the alarm is set for 5.30 or 6am it really makes me cross that I have been woken up and then lie there waiting for him to get up!! Why can't he get up on the first snooze so I might be able to go back to sleep?? Grrrr!
4). Using His Mobile At The Dinner Table Now I don't mean he is making phone calls, but he will insist on playing with is iPhone at the dinner table once he has finished eating! We don't sit down that often all together for a meal due to him working in the week but I do try and make it happen at least once a day at the weekend and sometimes for an evening meal during the week if he can finish work by 5.30pm. I feel it is important for Burton that we sit down together, to teach him good table manners and socialisation skills. I understand that Burton takes a lot longer to eat his food than me and his Daddy, but it really annoys me when the OH gets his phone out and browses it to pass the time! I have asked him not to but I get told off for nagging! Grrr!
5). Not Listening To Me
Why is it then when I ask him not to do something (take your pick from any of the above and there are plenty more!) I either get told I am nagging him or he just doesn't listen to me! Often I will tell him something eg. I am going to see my Mum on a particular day and when the day arrives he says I didn't inform him! Its like talking to a brick wall! Grrrr!
There are more, of course!, but these are probably ones I face most often
So are any of these familiar to you?
