I have been with my husband for 9 years, married for 6. I love him with all my heart. He has done so much for me over the years and I’m not just talking about fixing the Hoover and putting up shelves. I mean he has helped bring out my confidence and built up my self-esteem. He has helped me stand up for myself and made me realise that I can reach the goals I have set myself. He’s helped me stay strong through all of the emotion and heart-break from my leg.
I think he may be the most annoying person I have ever met. He can drive me crazy many times in one day and sometimes he doesn’t even realise he is doing it.
I have come up with a list of the top 5 most annoying things my husband does. I’m hoping he is not the only person who does these.
He swears a lot. He doesn’t have a off button, it doesn’t matter where we are or who we are with and most of the time he doesn’t realise what swear words he’s saying. When I tell him either to stop or repeat what he’s said, he will deny swearing that much.
Giving the kids snacks.
He is a complete nightmare when I am cooking dinner, he will come into the kitchen and raid the cupboards for a snack ( To tide him over, he says!!) but the kids also know he does this so they will hover by the kitchen door and will say ” DAAADDD!!” and he will automatically share which ever snack he has. This becomes a problem when they don’t want to eat their dinner.
Laughing at the wrong time.
ARGH! This drives me insane, I am the parent that does most of the discipline in our house, he is a big gentle giant. Our toddler is going through the terrible twos real bad at the moment and discipline is becoming a lot harder because punishments are not bothering her. When I am trying to discipline her, hubby will think its funny, the faces she pulls or the way she ignores me or even when she runs away, so he will start laughing at her which then turns the whole thing into a game because she then thinks it funny!!!
Playing rough and tumble.
Our children are quite hands on, they like playing rough and tumble, they like flinging each other around and hubby likes to join in by lifting them upside down and swinging them around or grabbing them and dumping them on the sofa. This is great fun but NOT when he starts playing with the children like this 30 Minutes before bed time. They end up going to bed still hyped and then it takes them ages to settle and go to sleep.
Ever parent has done it. You say to your child, this is your last warning or I’m taking away you train or Barbie, then the time comes and you give them another warning instead of taking the toy away. I’ve done it many times however hubby will give the kids their 1st warning, their 2nd warning, their 3rd warning and even their 4th warning before I have to step in and actually take away the toy. I’m sure he just doesn’t want to be the bad guy by taking away their toys.
These are my Top 5 annoying things my husband does and of course there are the little things like leaving cups in the living room, leaving washing right next to laundry basket and NEVER putting the loo roll on the holder, he will just sit it on top instead but the little things don’t tend to bother me any more, I know he does them and I’m not expecting him to change any time soon.
Are there things your partner does that drives you crazy? Leave me a comment below or come visit me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, I would love to hear some of your top 5.
