Come on ladies, what drives you crazy?? He can be the best husband in the entire world and rest assured he'll still have that annoying thing that he does!! So what is it??? Mine is he never throws anything away, he walks it to the trashcan and thats it. He leaves it on the counter RIGHT beside the trash can!!! Whats that?? Who does that?? It's like running the mile run and stopping right before the finish line. Well I know it's not quite up there on that level, BUT if he actually did throw something away it would be for me!!! :)

my husband is my best friend and i love him to bits but he has the most annoying downfall. when he sleeps he has to have his mouth open due to sinus problems, which leads him to dribble on the pillow.in the morning i feel as if i have been swimming.

Ok so get this. My husband, perfect in most ways leaves his cereal bowl on the sink every day. He goes through the effort of rinsing it out, yet doesn't wash it. I have tried to put a sink full of hot soapy water, an empty sink, ...and yet it still is there every day. I have been out of town for more than a week at a time and it gets washed, yet when I am home....CEREAL BOWL

Annoying things men do? Put up with a lot of nonsense from women who barely appreciate them. Being okay with being seen as a living breathing ATM and nothing else. Getting tons of gifts on pseudo holidays like Valentines only to have them thrown away later. Cheat on their women I know there are tons others but I'm running out of steam. I'll at least concede though men have flaws as has been stated by others. But it works both on genders last I checked.

Oh theprogamer, it seems to me like you might have just had a very nasty break up or something. Because if you had read our comments you would realize that we all love our men very much. We aren't laugh at them as much as laughing with them. And I am sure that there isn't one thing on here that has been said about our men that we have made fun of them to there face for. And we do realize that it works with both genders, but the blogs wasn't the annoying things that woman do. But, if it will make you feel better I would be happy to start a blog asking about the annoying things woman do. OK:)

I just always have to point it out. Plus I am very vocal about this issue as well. Shadow me and you may learn more about it. And also I'm just macabre in general, or at least I'm able to slip into that mode on issues that open up old wounds. Don't feel too bad though it happens. Plus I'm not angry really at anyone in the thread, just wanted to voice my opinion and observation on the matter.

Something that really annoys me about my boyfriend is when he drinks. I just hate it, it's annoying.

Oh nono. I don't agree with that at all. Cause sometimes I wish my hubby would drink, he's the one that is very "female" in the relationship as you would put it! I love me a good Captian Morgan, or should I say a couple good ones!!! :)

The thing that annoys me about my boyfriend is where he will start an argument or a discussion and then in the middle of the argument he will change it all around confusing me and making me think I am crazy. For example, the argument could've started about me leaving the coffee pot on even though I know he did it. I'll go to explain how I know he did it and all of a sudden he looks at me crazy and says he was talking about something totally different. He hates being wrong and it drives me crazy. I told him I was getting a tape recorder to sit in our living room so I can prove I'm not insane.

On a DAILY basis i am picking his dirty work clothes up off the floor.. he will get undressed in the bedroom, leaning on the hamper to take his socks off and then through all his clothes on the floor... god forbid he reaches an inch out of his way to place them in the hamper! i will be at the other end of the house in the kitchen or someplace while hes in the shower he will call me down to the bathroom to get him a towel out of the closet across the room!! he cant reach over and grab a towel himself he might get the floor wet!! get a towelBEFORE you jump in the shower!! oh and you dont even want me to get into the car trash detail! he has the car EVERYDAY for work.. the only time im in it is on the weekends.. i keep it every other thursday to go shopping... on those thursdays I clean out the car, clean the trash organize everyting and vasccumm.. when i get in it on saturday to head somewhere with him... it looks just as it did before i cleaned it 2 days ago!!

Okay ladies, your husbands are angles compared to my husbands 'downfalls'. Let see where do I begin. When he walks in the house he passes by the place where we hang up coats, hats etc and will continue into the kitchen and then drop everything in his hands onto the floor. He pees in and does not flush. He leaves his dishes on the desk and lets them sit for hours or days until they are moved, unless I move them. He sleeps crossways in the bed leaving me the smallest spot ever!!! He does not change diapers. Boy I better stop before I depress myself!! I love him but boy can he be laaazzzzyyy.

Thats what I say about mine, it's funny and maybe it's just me trying to make it better for myself but I've always thought that the more lazy they are around the house the more family oriented. As in playing with the kids, going to work every day, things like that. And hey, I figure as long as I don't have to put up with that stuff I can deal with he complete lack of enthusiasm for household chores!!! LOL..Men.

Maybe your husband is not that lazy. It's just that he had a very defective upbringing. You can change him to your liking why not ? But do it subtly. Meaning try to change him slowly and sweetly !!never let him suspect that you are changing him. If he sees your effort chances are he will change but he will also not let you notice it strikingly. Husbands respect themselves also no matter what bad habits they have accumulated in their life. Try it , lady !! Don't give up !!

My husband is the love of my life, but as with all humans, he has his downfalls. He is a pack rat, he won't throw anything away. He loves to play lego's (at 37) and leaves his little toys all over the place. He loves to play video games and doesn't realize that it is nice to do these things, it is nicer to spend time with your family. He is the biggest slob on the planet, he doesn't put things back where they belong, he leaves crumbs on the counter when he makes sandwiches and refuses to use a plate or napkin. These are just a few of the things he does to drive me crazy, but I love him dearly and wouldn't change him for the world. I just hope he volunteers hahaha!

OMG I Hate that I am always saying are you listening to me, try this next time he doesnt seem to be listening say something like and then I jumped off a bridge.... I use that one on my hubby and my dad and neither one of them were paying any attention! GRRR The one my hubby does that really gets me is when your in a dispute he always trys to flip it around to make me seem like it was my fault. He could have forgot to do something but some how I am to blame. There not usually big issues that we are "fighting" over but it really drives me CRAZY!

Somehow, this discussion makes me scared, laugh at myself and say:"Really? Is that how my wife will think of me someday?" I'm the candidate for getting married soon hopefully it would be planned out. I snore loudly in the night because of sinus problems. They playing a wind instrument can help relieve noises during sleep. I guess this will always be part of a relationship. It wouldn't hurt to tell nice things about your husbands once in a while. Commitment... What a funny thing it could turn out. 8-)

That is quite relief for me somehow. The discussions really sound like it is full of emotions that I guess that I have read between the lines in a very awful awful way. Whew! for me.

my hubby snores so loud.. it drives me crazy.. dang, can't stand it. LOLz.. seriously, husbands who have no time for their families can really be annoying.. also those who deny and lie.. like they're already caught red handed but they still try to make you look paranoid - feeding your mind with strange things..

Women hate to be ignored. So if their husbands don't pay attention to them, it'll make them angry. Also if the men have an affair, it'll be a very annoying behavior. The husbands who are drunk all the time can drive their wives away.
