Just Curious-Pet Peeves

(For more in the Just Curious series go here. The rules? I ask a question in today's post. You answer, short but sweet answers are best. I'll answer next week, then ask a new question. Easy!)


We've all got 'em. Pet peeves. What others do that drives us nuts. I've got a million on my own. Ahem.

However! Today we're going to focus on our spouse/significant other/most recent partner. (Being pc is such a hassle. You all know what I mean, right? Sheesh.) What does he/she do that drives you insane? Just the one, funny, little thing would be great. No starting WW3, please. Or being mean. Just a silly little thing...all of our guys have them, right? (It can't be just mine....)

Ready? Go! Pet peeves in the comments.....

My biggest pet peeve with DialogDog today (underline "today") is that even though the dishwasher might be empty he has yet to master the fine art of putting his used breakfast dishes into it. Instead he leaves them in the sink or on counter for me to deal with after he's left for work. HELLO!!!! DO I LOOK LIKE THE MAID??????

Hahahahahahahaha!

Bring it on, Girls!

Two recent ones, not end of the world stuff, but makes me chafe:

When after dinner, he gets on the kids about putting their dishes in the dishwasher, yet his remain on the table....hmmmm

His tendency to call his parents right when we get home from a night out and proceeds to tell them all about his feelings, without talking to me first - I mean, I co-experienced the event with him, hello! - and leaves me to do bedtime with the kids all by myself. Just a little consideration would go a LONG way ;)

Not being able to find his wallet or sunglasses at least two-three times a week. Nothing major, just consistent!! (And of course somehow it is always my job to help find them..grrr!)

Leaving his glass or dish next to the sink instead of in it....

...I have to add another...When he says "we" need to do something...he actually means "ME!"

Fisherhubby Pet Peeves:

1) Taking over the coffee table with his junk

2) Taking over the floor with his shoes and socks - - - I mean ALL OVER THE PLACE

3) SPENDING like he is a millionaire, which he most certainly is NOT

4) Isn't that enough?

Yah - - - after reading the others, Fisherhubby has dish-in-sink, keys, and wallets issues too. Why should I KNOW WHERE those keys are at all times?

Just one is hard. The longer we are together the longer the list keeps growing. I will go with a simple one, he never puts a dish/cup in the dishwasher, just sets it on the counter!

I just started reading your blog earlier this week - and must say I love the Just Curious posts!

My biggest pet peeve - and it might make me sound super snotty - but is when my hubby of 9 years decides to do all the laundry. What's wrong with that you ask? Helllooo - he's doing laundry, right?

It's the coming home to 4 or 5 loads of laundry not in baskets, completely covering all my couches beckoning me to come fold them, that is the problem. I like Mount Laundry in Small doses, thanks : )

I wish my hubby would quit using chewing tobacco. That icky spit cup gives me a case of the ickies and its bad for him.

Pet peeve w/ the hub?

The Garage

'nuff said. Though, I should post a photo of it--it's a freakin' mess such that we can't actually park our vehicles in it.

I don't like it if he asks if "we've" done something...like have "we" paid the Visa bill? Have "we" called the doctor? Ugh.
