    • Mine and his family are pack rats, my husband drives me insane at times, he has a desk that is so junky as well as dusty to no end and I refuse to touch it. He has so much junk in a corner of our bedroom that it makes no sense and now he is trying to come over on my side of the room NOT! I told him just this morning if he doesn’t do something about it today tomorrow it will all be gone.

    • My husband has slowly taken over his dresser drawers as his junk drawers.  I let him have one as his junk drawer but he has now taken over two more that are suppose to have clothes in them.  Instead they have bullets, and this other little crap.  It’s on my list to handle and I will be handling it.  

      The other one is he exaggerates.  I told him just last night that he makes things bigger than they really are....drives me insane.

    • Mine is a neat freak, but wants me to keep it that way...not him. He can not stand if somethings crooked (lampshade) or out of place. And he overacts about little things that dont matter.

    • I’ve got so many pet peeves with mine at the moment that I don’t know where to start!

      Biggest is this, he won’t do anything to help himself feel better.  He won’t take his vitamins, he won’t try to loose weight, he won’t do physical therapy.  I might as well be married to a damn houseplant.

    • LOL I come from a long line of pack rats and understand both sides of the situation. I have a dusty pile in my bedroom as well, never mind the living room which I have yet to unpack. Very few feet of horizontal surface uncovered. At least I dust either with duster or cans of air (I love that, don’t have to move anything!). If you ask a true pack rat where something is and he or she finds it within seconds, that’s a system of organization. If it takes hours to find or finds everything else but, that’s a hoarder. I’ve read conflicting statements about a messy desk. A few say a messy desk is a sign of a messy mind. Many say a messy desk is a sign of genius. (The latter is definitely me LOL!) What I like to do on occasion is go through a pile and toss out things which have past their expiration date (which means either an actual date or my actual need for it date), and it’s an ongoing process.

      As far as my pet peeve? Saying he’s going to call and he doesn’t. That’s irresponsible, end of story.

    • My pet peeve for hubby would be that he lets his brother walk all over him. It makes me so upset and I tell him about it but it goes in one ear and out the other.

      Also he is such a procrastinator. I will ask him to do something that needs fixed around the house and he says he will but never gets around to it. Then when the next weekend comes again, he will mention he needs to do that project and again, he doesn’t do it.worried

      Hubby likes to cook so when he’s in the kitchen he will be cooking and smoking at the same time. YEAH, it’s pretty gross to me. But he has this habit of leaving his ashtray in the kitchen and I really dislike that. frown

    • LOL!! kicking your landlord out.heart

      Yeah I try to get him to stop smoking but it just won’t work. And before I told him he can only smoke in certain rooms which would be his room! But it has obviuosly moved to the kitchen. I just don’t want to start arguing with him about it.

      @mz-v, Thats exactly what hubby lets people do. Take advantage. He’s just to nice of a person to say the word NO.

    • I can’t be around smoke.  When I was a youngin...when you could smoke in civic centers...etc...I could never go to concerts because of the smoke...it would shut me down faster than anything.  So....I’d be like Cathie...I would be kicking somebody out.  I’m sorry you have to deal with that.

    • I agree with you Kristi, my hub has the ability to wreck a counter-top in a matter of minutes...mustard smeared, crumbs all over, knife laying there..but he has the gall to yell about the twisty tie not being on the bread bag tight enough..yikes!..and the best is if son and I don’t fill the ice cube trays up fast enough, then he goes on a rant..I call him, Jim, because his dad would do the same thing.estaticestatic

    • My husband does not pick up after himself. Where ever he takes his clothes off that is where they stay until I pick them up.  My bedroom is a royal mess. He likes to cook as well and he leaves everything he uses on the counter tops. WTH

    • I have to say, I laughed my Dutch hiney off reading this message.  Men and women are just wired differently - so many similarities in these posts.  

      My SO lives out of state, and whenever he calls me he instantly launches into a story about coaching or teaching or what one of his sons did at a wrestling meet...but he never, ever says, “Is this a good time to talk?”  Typically, I’m in my office at work with two doctors and an angry patient to deal with, or at home with a baby on my hip, a dog scratching at the front door and two eight-year olds in the middle of ruining my front lawn with the garden hose.  I love him dearly, but it makes me crazy.

      And while I’m experiencing the lovely release of a good vent session...he also ADVISES when he should just LISTEN.  I may be blowing off steam about something my son said to me, or the fact that my mom opened my mail “accidentally“.  I’m not looking for an answer. I just want him to smile and nod and tell me how RIGHT I am!  However, he will quickly respond with “Ground him” or “You need to lay down the law with your mother“.  

      Isn’t it a miracle that any of us have successful relationships???  heart
