Do you ever sometimes wish that your DH/SO would just shut up????

Ok, I married a man that talks more than any woman I know. He uses the phone more than me. I grew up in a household with a very quiet father. My mother did all the talking. I thought it was pretty cool to have a man that was a lot like my mom. But the man NEVER shuts up! Thank God we just got DVR because he will talk through half the shows I try to watch. I had to re-read a post on here like fifty times because he kept talking! I love my DH, but sometimes a little silence would be nice. And my son has definitely inherited his dad's gift for gab!

  • Sometimes, YES! It drives me crazy because he wants to talk while I'm watching one of my DVRed shows (which I can only watch after the kids go to bed). Then he gets mad at me because I keep rewinding or pausing the show. Well, hello! If you would hush, and stop talking for just a little while, you can talk all you want during the commercials and I won't fast forward. But then other times, he doesn't talk at all (when he's on his computer)... don't see me trying to talk his ear off, do you? Noooo. Ugh... men. LOL

  • LoL! Mine's the same way! And most of the time he talks about the most stupid stuff. I try to tune him out, but when I'm trying to read or something I feel like smacking him upside the head with my book.

  • My husband used to be the same with video games. It was always "hey, honey, come check this out! Look, aren't the graphics (or whatever, it's always something else) really great!"
    I thought about having my sister cough on him when she had laryngitis a while back, but it seemed a little too mean. :-)

  • yes, but i think my dh would rather i shut up too!
    he gets to talk to grown ups at work, and i do not. he is tired of talking by the time he gets home, and i am just getting started!
