What's your biggest relationship pet peeve?

What's your biggest pet peeve about your spouse? Does your spouse constantly do the same thing that irritates you? Here's my biggest pet peeve. It rained constantly this past week. And, the week before. So, that means lots of mud. My spouse picks up mud on his boots. And, everytime he walks into the house, he tracks mud everywhere. The mud gets into the grooves on the bottom of his boots. And, when it dries, it flakes off and leaves trails all over the house. We have pristine white tile floors and they look so messy after he walks through a room. I'm the person in charge of cleaning the floors, so that's why I care so much. I wish he'd leave his shoes at the door. Or, take them off at the back door and leave the shoes in the laundry room. So, that's my pet peeve. For awhile he left his shoes at the back door, but he's gotten back into bad habits.

Okay, I know this sounds crazy but I hate men that goes around farting without any consideration for others. I am scare of all body odour , it's just something that has always bothered me.whether it's shoes , mouth or underarm makes no different and i tend to judge people off that factor.

Mine will leave his shows all over the house . I am not talking about one pair like maybe 4 or 5 . I will find them actually under the coffe table or on a counter top , or worse coming up the porch steps . There are many other things he does as well , but i dont wanna get mad lol. I mean how hard is it to clean up afer yourslf he never does, i have to go over it again .

I have so many pet peeves one is that when he come home from work instead of putting his dirty clothes in the hamper he put them in the floor. And when he takes a shower he leaves clothes in the floor. And the one that makes me mad is he never makes the bed when he get out of it. Oh I have one more that I don't like.. When he shaves he leaves all the hair in the bathroom and I have to go behind him like one of the kids and get it up!!!

My kid leaves her dvds everywhere. She's allowed to do that, my spouse is not.

The thing that bugs me the most about my husband is that when he watches TV, everything else ceases to exist. I will tell him something twice, and then ask if he heard what I said. He will repeat it back to me, but then when it's time for him to do whatever I told him he needed to do, he says I never told him! It drives me crazy! He does it about so many things, too. It can be about getting to work early for something, or calling someone back, it doesn't matter, he never remembers anything I tell him while the TV is on!

Mine drives me nuts with that. I could stand in front of him and speak to him and he would act like he heard and later, sure enough, he did not hear. And, he's so adamant that I did not tell him. Lately, I've been telling him that as long as I tell him, my job is done. Sometimes I'll write stuff on a note and tack it to the wall as a reminder, but if he misses that, he can't blame me. It has totally worked! He sees my notes. He acts on them. I think it's a guy thing. They don't like to be told anything. Don't worry, it's not you or me. It's all them! Totally them. They don't like bosses on the job telling them stuff either. They don't like the neighbors telling them stuff. With one exception, maybe their mom could tell them something and it'd actually stick. But, being a mom, myself, I think that would be a compliment to her parenting skills. I just don't want to have to treat my hubby like a baby before he'll listen to me! Thanks for joining my rant. Be well. G'day!

My husband procrastinates about any work around the house (taking off trash, cleaning yards ect..) this drives me insane! I end up doing what of it i can then i am in agonizing pain for days and sometimes weeks afterward ( back trouble). I am to the point that i won't even open the curtains in the living room because i know i will have to see my yard in such a mess and then i will have to do something about it.
