The Most Annoying Thing!

What's the most annoying habit or quirk your DH/SO has that you noticed after you moved in together?

For me, it's my husband's constant need to rid the house of my things.

My parents put their peanut butter in the fridge.

hmmm...the most annoying...this board isn't big

is it the whistling, the irritating loud noises he makes just because he can ( i am serious if he was in scool he would be diagnosed with ADD or AHDD) hmmm.

I think my most irritating issue is that when he has worked what he considers hard for the day he comes home and does nothing, it doens't matter if i am sick or tired, i still have to keep going...that would be the most irritating...i love him, and maybe he doesn't realize he does it, but he does......

Ew!! (about the racing stripes)

Ian and Lucy both take their clothes off everywhere, leaving a trail behind. I think if DH did that, I'd probably lose it.

Oh, yes. I forgot about the whistling. He only does it when I'm in a really bad mood. I don't think he even realizes it. There aren't many things more annoying than hearing someone's happy little whistle tune when I'm in a foul mood.

Well, he did it again. We went to a wedding over the weekend, and I was trying to find my little black dress purse. I knew where I put it. It was in a box with the matching shoes (Ann Taylor). The shoes were there, but the purse was gone. I don't understand him. How in the world does a small purse bother him? It was in a box inside a Rubbermaid tote. I'm tempted to start secretly tossing his stuff.

The most annoying thing... I feel kinda bad that this is actually a little hard for me to answer. For one thing, dh is a pretty sensitive person and then, I'm not easily annoyed either. Ummm. Ok. This was from before we were married. Back in high school even. He was extremely sensitive about his weight. Of course, back then he was 6'1 and 180 lbs. Tall, broad shouldered and muscular, he was the "tall, dark and handsome" of fairy tales! But any time anybody, especially me, said anything about his size, he got all bent out of shape. Seriously?! Anyway, his sensitivity is both a blessing and a curse, but I've successfully desensitized him to people's comments for the most part and he usually can tell when somebody means it "that way" or not.

The one other thing he does that bothers me is taking his mom too seriously and babying her. This weekend she was insisting we take her to go eat cause she "only had an empanada for breakfast." If you don't know, its kinda like a turnover. Fruit filled, pastry-like thing. Anyway, we were at our nephew's tournament and I suggested she get a hotdog or burrito from the concession stand. Dh: no, she needs real food. She needs to keep her blood sugar up (diabetic) and cant just go hours without eating like the rest of us. Well, as it turned out, things were taking forever and T was done with the whole thing and needed a nap, so we said mil could come home with us. She still wanted to go eat on the way but dh and I agreed that T might not put up with being in a restaurant after spending 2 hrs waiting at the tournament. So mil pouted but we went home and ate leftovers. Know what she ate? Two biscuits left from breakfast and a chicken breast. How is that different from a freakin hotdog?! I told him later that she should have had something besides just meat and bread and could have just had a hotdog and that it would all he better if she'd just take better care of herself. Grrr. How did this go from a dh complaint to a mil rant?
