Pet Peeves With Your Family

What are some things that people you live with do that makes you crazy? My husband makes me crazy when he opens a new gallon of milk and leaves the little plastic ring that holds the lid on in the fridge. Trash can is right there, do not now why he can't throw it away. Another thing that he does is puts the cups, like from a fast food place, in the sink. Does he think I am going to wash it. Again the trash can is right there. Makes me absolutely crazy. I won't even start on about my boys(9 & 7), still trying to train them.

My pet peeves are really stupid, but they still exist. LOL I hate it when my fiance leaves the lid up in the bathroom...he'll put the seat down, but why not the lid? Ugh. I hate it when he and my nephew squeeze the middle of the toothpaste tube to get some out, even though the rest of us squeeze from the bottom. It also bugs the heck out of me when trash is put on the counter NEXT to the trash can. What is up with that?!

Husband is a foot wiggler. Sometimes, I pretend to have a seizure so he understands its THAT bothersome! Daughter leaves tooth paste clumps in the sink basin, gross!

I'm reminded of the book "Don't sweat the small stuff, and it's all small stuff" with this question. I suppose for me it's watching my spouse walk right past something on the floor that needs to be put up. It's like it has it's own Klingon cloaking device. Though, he has his own about me. I am notorious for leaving the milk container in the fridge with just a bit left in it. Maybe it's just that it is my small way of getting back? :)

I get ticked when my husband calls me as I'm going out the door to take kids to school (and he has a clock so he has to know I'm doing this and it's morning crunch time) to tell me that he forgot to take the trash out and take it up to the road. I say to this thanks, I'll do it and our child can just be late to school. It's not like he had to do a ton of stuff to do, but the trash is at the top. I also HATE when people put trash into their cups and then stick them with other cups to be washed because I dump them into the sink and stick my hand in to pull out a now soggy wadded up papertowel.

Mine are things like... I am thankful that you take the trash from the cookies, or chips or whatever your eating...... to the kitchen, but don't just put it on the counter, throw it in the dang trash... same goes for the cups, they make it to kitchen, but never to the sink, and I will wash dishes and after i think i'm done, i empty the sink, only to turn around to find an empty glass.. My son, oh lord... there's are too many to list for him.

The biggest pet peeve I have with my husband is leaving the lid off of the toothpaste! Drives me insane! And unfortunately he has trained both my kids very well. I mean seriously...how much time does it take to just simply put the lid back on and while your at it put the toothbrush back in the tooothbrush holder NOT ON THE SINK!

OMG i have been going absolutely crazy with my husbands endless irritations. taking things out of their place and leaving them all over the place, keeping things within his reach but needing me to climb to get to them, or keeping something in a place only he knows, so i have to call out to him whenever i am looking for it, interrupting, making excuses for any and everything, to name a few. Do they ever stop if they know how they irritate you??

My husband and I take turns cooking, which I thoroughly enjoy. But if he is fixing something that is prepackaged he has a tendancy to leave the trash on top of the stove nonetheless. I am always getting onto him about leaving things up there. And YES; the trash can is just a couple steps away from the area. I'm always telling him it's a fire hazzard and please watch it. Even sillier, he's a volunteer firefighter. grrrrrr
