Oh for the love....

Ok. There is this one thing that Shane does that drives me crazy. When you read what it is you will most likely roll your eyes and say something like "Natalie, come on. Pick your battles." But here is the thing. I do pick my battles. And this is my battle of choice. I never nag. In fact, I could be considered the anti-nag. But I swear, if Shane leaves one more empty carton/cereal box on this exact section of the kitchen counter, I am libel to blow a gasket. Anyone else have a random spousal grievance they want to share? I know you do......

-Shane you really are wonderful. But let's work on the empty carton thing. The garbage is like 5 feet away. Thanks love.

haha, chris does the same thing. he says it's to let me know that we're out of something, otherwise i won't know to pick it up at the store. suuuure! :) although, that does sort of make sense.

I cannot stand it when my boys(all of them) drink the last of the ice tea and then put the EMPTY pitcher in the fridge....urgh!!!

Ok so I'm with you~ I hate it when my hubby and daughter do this and I've asked them over and over again to please put it in the garbage.
That extra motion it would take must cause them considerable pains~ LOL
So glad to see it's a universal problem. ~

Give Shane a break,afterall,isn't he the one that usually empties the garbages...that is when he is home.

Fess up, who wrote that last comment....Mary, Mom???

And no, I take out the garbage now. I'm not really sure how that happened....

My hubby has this annoying habit of leaving empty glasses NEXT TO the sink, never IN the sink. Dishwasher is totally out of the question. After 19 years I should just give up, but I am still trying. ( I am Kristi's neighbor)

my biggest "hubby petpeeve" is the fact that I have to ASK for certain things like that are so obvious to me, for example...getting ready for church. I can be running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get everyone ready and he is taking a 20 minute shower and whistling his favorite tune...ARGH, that drives me CRAZY!!

April said...

look what you've started Natalie...

maybe you should start a blog exclusively for wives- so they can have a place to vent out their little marriage frustrations- and we could all have fake sign on names so it would be totally safe...ok I'm kidding-

but seriously what is up with that annonymous comment- I thought it was Emily for a second-

The trouble I see with where he leaves stuff is that he covers up that ADORABLE collender on the counter.

Natalie Jane said...

Thank you. I am quite enamored with it myself. Maybe I will put a photo of it on my side bar....when I find my camera again....

I'll trade your random empty cartons for my husband's PANTS on the dining room chairs. :)

My husband does the EXACT same thing. Although, at our house, it is often empty boxes as well. As in, an empty box of oatmeal packets or something like that...It just gets left in the cupboard and then when I go to the store, I don't buy oatmeal, because I checked and there was a box.... Ok, so, I kinda of ranted there a bit. Whoops

Natalie! I can't come up with one grievance in particular at the moment, but I do know that he hates it when I don't clear the countdown on the Nuker if I stop it early. And it bugs me that he picks at me about it all the time!
Oh wait. He eats out of packages, bags and boxes IN the pantry. AND-he leaves the mayo, condiments etc. on the counter forEvah. He says it's because he Might want to come back for seconds. (We're talking an HOUR later.) Wow. That felt good.

Oh yah. I have a giveaway on MY blog.... not Saying It Simply. Just FYI.

♥ My husband does the same stuff and what really irks me is when he put flipping garbage (ie wrappers, paper towel or other retarded stuff) In the SINK!!! WHAT THE???? That's just one! Luckily I haven't had to worry about that in the last 2 months since we don't have a house yet! :)

Are You Serious! said...

♥ The comment on getting ready for church that's ANOTHER one for me too!!! I tell my hubby that he primps more than I DO!!! There is just something wrong with that and I have to get ALLLLL the kids ready! WHAT'S up with THAT! :)

beth said...

Come on. What is better than putting moldy bread back in the cabinet and after I eat a piece, then he tells me that it was moldy. NICE! That and everything else is annoying but we still love them ANYWAY!

My husband leaves food on his fork when he is done with it. I don't know why this bothers me so much but most of the time it dries on there and then I have scrub it off, cause you know the dishwasher isn't going to get it. I know it is a little thing and I do it cause I love him, but come on. Just put the fork in your mouth and clean it off when you are done. Is this too weird?

OMG, Xander does the same thing!! He'll open something and leave the wrapper on the counter when the garbage is right under the sink. UGH! The other thing is his dirty socks. Every night when we're chilling, he takes his socks off and leaves them wherever. Does he pick them up? NO! I do, everyday of my life. Ahhh... thank goodness I love him SOOOOOO much!
