Pet peeves of your.......S.O.!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
List your pet peeves of your significant other...... (this could get interesting!)

I hate it how my boyfriend always leaves his dirty clothes all over the floor... even right next to the hamper- but never in it!

I hate it when he shaves and gets hair ALL OVER the bathroom.

I hate it how he leaves the living room door open when going outside real quick... does he really think we can afford to A\\C the outside world?

I hate it when my boyfriend farts... not because it peeves me but because they smell horrible! I know you have to fart... but he just lets them go anytime anywhere. Good thing he's handsome and charming!

I swear theres a thread just like this somewhere. Most recently I was a little peeved by him bugging me every 5 minutes while I was trying to read the last Harry Potter book. He accused me of liking Harry better... he was going "Ohhh Harry! I love you... Oh Harry!" silly boy!

I hate it that I'm working all day everyday, and because they don't have work for him,, he's home, and isn't cleaning the house....

I hate that he complains about everything I ask or do.

I hate that he doesn't shave on a regular basis and when he does the hair is all over the place

My number one pet peeve is that he likes to leave his smelly socks on the bed or on the computer desk!

He always leaves the dresser drawers open when he takes clothes out. I continually have to remind him to close them when he's done!

He's a cover and bed hog... I either wake up with about 5 inches of bed, or wake up with him draped over me to where I couldn't move if I tried.

I'm sure I have more, that's just all I can think of at the moment! LOL

I"ve got just as many pet peeves on him as he does on me.

Mainly though my pet peeve is his empty soda bottles. He has a sick addiction to Diet Mt. Dew and goes through 4-5 two liters a day. Instead of putting them somewhere so that they're ready to recycle, they just sit on the kitchen counter.

We have a ton of kitchen counters too...but they fill up quickly between that and dirty dishes.

I hate when my Hubby uses a Q-Tip and leaves it in the bathroom wastebasket where Tedy will go dumpster-diving for it. (I`m always afraid he`ll eat the cotton ends....not to mention that he`s not selective about taking just "it" out of the wastebasket....everything else in there ends up all over the floor.)
How hard is it to remember to bring it out and put it in the wastebasket in the kitchen, under the sink, where the cat can`t get to it?

My Hubby & I are too laid back to have pet peeves about each other. Lifes too short to be mad about hair in the sink or dirty laundry thats by the hamper but not in the hamper. We aren't saying pet peeves are bad, its just so hard to be irritated with those things when life is so great We just don't want to be mad about anything... We only have one life! We going to be happy for every moment of it

I'm sure we'll make people mad just by writing that...but its just who we are.

When he shaves and leaves hair in the bathroom sink.
When he takes clothes out of the dresser, decides not to wear them and then throws them on top of the dresser.
When he pees and doesn't flush the toilet.
When he lets his ciggarette ash get to long and it falls where ever he happens to be sitting.
When he goes to get clothes out of the laundry basket and messes up everything in there that is neatly folded.

The list goes on and on and on.

Thats exactly why all our cotton things are in a kitty proof cabinet! Wickett has a cotton fetich... q-tips, cotton balls, maxi pads!

Ahh... love birds! Matt and I don't really get mad or upset my little annoyances as they are just that... a minor annoyance that I'm over before I know it.

I hate that.

I also hate how he leaves his pop cans sitting around until the end of the night. We put them all on the counter in the kitchen and then bring them out a couple times a day. He has to go back to the kitchen to get another drink, why can't he bring the empty can with him?

He never does laundry, I always do. When I put it away I organize the drawers and the first time he opens them, he messes them all up and throws the clothes on the floor.

When he takes off his clothes, he sits them on top of my dresser if he plans on wearing them again (like his shorts, he only wears them after work for a few hours).

He is constantly playing with everything he can find. Whether it is a toy, a pen, the cat toys...it doesnt matter what, he will amuse himself with it.

I am not mad that you wrote that. It's actually quite cute.

I love my boyfriend a lot, but I always have a couple pet peeves that I WISH he would change... this isn't something we fight about. It's just something that always irritates me. That's part of living with him though, and I'm sure there's a lot of things about me he wishes I would change!

Maybe I got lucky, but I really don't have any issues with my boyfriend. Ok, yeah his farts smell, but that's really it. He cleans up after himself and keeps his apartment clean. He keeps himself very neat and clean too. Yay!

I don't really have any issues with Jeremy.
In fact, the only truly annoying thing about him, I find amusing rather than annoying.

I will yell and ask him where he is if I can't see him.
Instead of telling me where he is, he tells me what he is doing, if I ask what he's doing, he tells me where he is, every time.
Completely automatic with him, he wasn't even aware that he did that until I pointed it out.

Actually we really do not have any pet peeves about each other! We found out what bugged us before we got married.

I hate it when a guy takes off socks and rolls them up and throws them in the hamper (or leaves them by the bed) - and told him; so he tries not to do it. I don't care if they are inside out or not when washed, but shake them out BEFORE you put them in the hamper.

So, a little off topic here, but you say that you guys figured out eachothers pet peeves before you got married... So you guys fixed everything to where nothing bugs you any more OR did you just learn to live with it? Just curious!

Thank you, my DH still balls up his socks. I hate it when he puts garlic powder on most everything he eats. Then he has stinky breath. I make him go brush.

Ok, so this is a recent thing, but it's rather annoying to me, lol.

Ya see, DH and I work in the same organization (Information Technology at Purdue), but we work in different areas. I work in Communications, and he's a network engineer. You would think that this would be a perfect match...he tells me all the big changes to the network he's making, and I use that and let everyone know. HA!

What he has been known to do is the following (on more than one occasion, therefore, a pet peeve):

Tell me that he's gonna make the change, it'll affect the entire campus, but not to worry because he's putting feelers out everywhere to make sure that he doesn't accidentally cause connection disruptions for anyone across campus. Then he does the unthinkable...

He emails a system administrator mailing list, telling them what's going on, without letting me know that he's going to. What ends up happening is a FIRESTORM! OMG! He gets flooded with people who completely misread and made assumptions and then he gets snarly and frustrated. Then he comes to me, tells me what's going on, and I write up something for him to send out, and then...*cricket* it's all over. Why? Because it is my JOB to let people know things...

It is times like this, I feel like Tina the Tech Writer.

My DH smokes and I hate it. I tolerate it to a point, but I hate the ashes everywhere! On his computer desk especially. Or when he goes to kiss me and he's like a smoke stack.. I always pull away and he feels bad, you'd think he'd get the hint after a while

DH is pretty clean, usually cleaner than I am.. sadly.

DH leaves cabinet doors open in the kitchen, the upper ones.. I hate it! I am not sure why but it bugs me to no end.

Other than those couple things, he's a pretty clean and easy to live with guy

All of the above!
post #24 of 26
I'd say since we know what would bug each other, we are more aware and more willing NOT to do it. In the 5 yrs we've been married we've never had a "fight" - a few disagreements, but not screaming/yelling/crying over things (had enough of that in the 1st marriages to the wrong people).

The biggest disagreement (and it kinda scared me as we were on totally opposite sides) was when our 15 yr old son wanted to start driver's ed and I was totally against it till he was 17/18 yrs old.

I got so upset about things that we stayed home from church that morning. I sat down and wrote out my objections to it. Then gave it to him and we took 2 hrs of discussing each one and compromising on the "rules" if he took it that early
post #25 of 26
lets see....

his love of farting, burping, and passing any other form of gas his body could possibly produce as loudly as possible then asking me "did you like that? that was pretty cool huh?"

how his way is "always right" or so he thinks

when he puts his toenails beside each other and makes them make a scratching noise- omg i HATE that!!!!!! I bite him every time he does that

and lastly, how he LOVES to torment me by following me around the house and poking at me and pulling at my hair to tease me like a school kid would

at the end of the day though i still love him to pieces...and well, it just wouldn't be the same if colin wasn't gassy all the time
post #26 of 26
The only one I have is that he leaves the cabinets open in the kitchen when he gets something out. But it doesn't bother me much - it reminds me that he is home and not away on business.
