Never learned his lesson

I am never too particular about anything, I try to put things back in their place but I am never worried if they are not.. My two boys have given me sufficient training in that.. now our pet has taken over.. he leaves his toys and chewy all around the house. My husband on the other hand has not learned his lessons from the boys..He really loses his cool if someone touches his personal belongings. The boys often help themselves to his aftershaves and deodorants, he doesn't mind that awfully, but it has to be left in the exact same place and in the exact same position as he had placed it.. I usually take a look around his stuff before he reaches home and put things in place.. I hate to see him so upset.. I try to tell him its okay after all its just a few inches away.. but he will not see reason. This usually gives us a good laugh.. He calms down after a while.. I wonder if he will ever change in this one aspect of life.. Are you a perfectionist on the slightly obsessive side?

I am also a bit like your husband. My husband do not keep his beddings well on his part of the bed sometimes. So, even if I will be already late to gout and take a public ride, I really would fix our bedrooms well, first. That is because, I go home ahead of him from our office and I want to see a neat and orderly bedroom, when I go inside to rest.

@SIMPLYD Are you very fussy? Do you get into arguments over being tidy? Lucky me, I don't have to worry about the bed, he makes the bed as soon as he wakes up.. I rush off to the kitchen..

@sofssu No I didn't argue, but I angrily tell him to fix it. He would when told but the blanket were just folded so and so.

My husband, our sons, and I are all neat freaks and like everything in its place. We never complain, because we put everything in its place after using it.

I am a perfectionist. Being one can be very frustrating at times. I am working on being less of a perfectionist.

@Corbin5 I know how frustrating it is.. just watching my husband. Sometimes i feel so sorry for him especially when he does everything by himself and keeps on working on them till he is satisfied.. Hope you don't struggle like him.

@sofssu I am a bit like your husband, but thankfully, I am getting better at becoming a realist. A realist knows that perfection is merely a dream, a hope, a wish.

@Corbin5 I truly hope he will realize it some day and learn to enjoy imperfections too.

@sofssu The reason I put things in a certain place is because so I know where they are and can find them.

@Hannihar Logically yes, but do you loose your cool if someone moved your cheese?

Are you a perfectionist on the slightly obsessive side? Only about my record collection and stereo system.

Ha ha...This is identical to the scenario in our house except that the kids have flown the nest. I have instances of phoning the help and asking her to get t the house in order if the boys are there with their father and I am away before he comes back from office I don't mind a mess within limits
