My wife is at bell choir practice at church and her drawers are wide open AGAIN!! :o

It just makes me so mad :mad:

Since my wife and I both work we have always shared in the household chores...laundry, cooking, yard work, etc.

Saturday is the day I usually vacuum while she goes to bell choir practice at church...

today..once again...she left 3 drawers half open in her dresser....it makes my so :mad:

I even had to close the silverware drawer in the kitchen...again! :mad:

I know she was in a hurry to get to practice after our Saturday morning :running: walk to :coffee2: Starbucks and her :rain: shower...

but is it asking too much :snooty: for her to keep her drawers closed so it doesn't take time from my vacuuming to close them?

I :twirly: think not :no:

And yet she re-folds EVERY piece of laundry that I fold...every time...even my own work t-shirts....she has always done that....no matter how good I fold them....:shrug:

Maybe that's why she leaves her drawers open :idea:

Because they look so good inside ;)

How 'bout you...got a pet peeve with your loved one(s)? :)

he has a hard time throwing away pieces of paper he writes notes on. we live in a smallish place, doesn't take much to clutter things up. stop the madness(!)

PS great pic, gotta love Lady Liberty! (I can see her if I look down my street here in Brooklyn!)

My DH will always leave the back sliding door open!!!!! Won't even close the screen door! I don't care that he will only be a few seconds outside, just close the door! I have actually taken to nagging him about it, and told him I'm going to break him of this habit even if it kills me!!!

Thanks...if my step-d moves back here or somewhere else I doubt I'll ever go back...not that I didn't have a great time there!

If you look in my profile you can see the picture my step-d's boyfriend took with our camera....she's right between Angie and I...Miss Liberty!

Funny stuff!

My wife doesn't usually close the garage door coming into the house either...

which usually means one of our dogs won't go through the doggie door 'cause it's too scary when the door moves...or the cold air comes in at winter...and/or I hear the washer/dryer going...

making me get up out of my recliner...

lucky for me my beer fridge is in the garage so it isn't always a wasted trip!

When my X visits, he turns on every stinking light in the house and leaves them on along with the TV and computer. He's a coal miner. Last time I told him, "I know you like your job, but, does your entire "job security" have to come directly outta my wallet?"

My dh is the one who always leaves drawers and cabinet doors open. Drives me nuts. I know his brother does it as well, so I blame my MIL lol.

My bf leaves things around after he finishes something. Like he used a garden hoe to dig a mote around a new tree so we could water it and when he was done he left the hoe lying in the grass...so the next day I came out and saw it lying there and had to put it away.

My husband pointed out to me a couple years ago that after I went into the kitchen, it always ooked like a poltergeist had been in there...because I left all the cabinets open :/ I had never noticed that I did that, honestly! So since then, I've tried to fix that habit, and have mostly stopped doing it. Or...actually, I still leave cabinets open while I'm doing stuff in the kitchen, BUT I close them before leaving. It's some kind of progress, anyway :)

There's a very funny theme in the recent movie "Date Night" where the husband constantly leaves drawers open that the wife then bangs into and injures herself on. I think a lot of us marrieds can relate to that!

I hate it when I do dishes and I manage to get the spoon unstuck from the bowl only to find that there were cord flakes left in there that you almost need a jackhammer to get off! The worse thing is I don't even eat cornflakes and my boyfriend never rinses out the bowl or even bothers to make sure he eats them all.

My boyfriend does the same thing, although after 3 1/2 yrs he's finally getting slightly better! I'm almost constantly running into open drawers, or catching the top of my head on cupboard doors! I'm blind so the kitchen has become a bit of a hazard area for me once he leave it. I've gotten into the habit of checking all the drawers and doors I can reach to make sure they are shut before I start doing anything just in case.

my main complaint about my ex is that he always left everything on the counter in the kitchen. Spices, anything he took out of the fridge, garbage, dirty dishes...tools. It drove me insane because I'm mildly OCD. I was always after him. But we made a good team, he made the messes and I cleaned them up. I like to think it kept us busy.

My fiancée leaves the drawers open all the time. I'm looking forward to having kids so I can child-proof all the drawers!!!

My fiance will put dishes on the counter after eating with food still on them, no throwing away the leftover trash stuff or putting them in the sink. On occasion I have found a dish in the sink with half a sandwich on it or spagetti left.

The other thing that drives me crazy is he is big on eating everything in a bag, box, what have you and then putting it back. I have found bags of chips with 5 chips left. Drives me bonkers!

Our kitchen cupboards are old and out of true, so they never stay closed. After a few years of dealing with this all the time, we bought and installed eye locks. Finally they stay closed. But my husband always forgets to do this. Every time I go into the kitchen, all the cupboards will be open - unless I locked them.

He cooks, cleans, does laundry and a thousand other things for me - so I can't complain to him. But it secretly drives me nuts

Oh yeah. My X had a habit of leaving dishes and magazines in the walking paths of the house. The dishes were so I would have to pick them up and take them to the kitchen rather than him getting off his big, lazy one and doing it. The mags musta just been so he could enjoy watching me slip and twist my back out on a daily basis. Can't imagine why I divorced him, eh? :rolleyes:
