How do you bite your tounge and just learn to live with someones bad habit( nose picking husband) adult content

my husband picks his nose constantly and half the time i don't think he knows it so he will just stare at the TV and put his thumb up in there and rub the side of his nose and the outer fingers rub the outside....then he retracts and wipes his hand on his pants.

I just want to yell "QUIT PICKING YOUR NOSE"!!!!

but he is emotionally immature and takes things in a way where he gets ultra defensive and will act like I just kicked him down with what little self esteem he has.
so how do I handle this??????? it is driving me nuts

  • Eh, i'm a nag. I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut when he does something annoying like that. I think he just gets used to my nagging though! Lol!

  • Point it out to him whenever he does it. I would think he would want to stop. What do people at work think?

  • I let him know that I hate some of the thigns he does. He does'nt take offense and he changes that bad habit..

  • I would absolutely bring it to his attenion when he does it. Maybe its just a habit and he doesnt realize hes doing it.

  • Ew. My husband and I have been together 14 years and I still smack him in the hand when he bites his nails. His fingers never go up his nose though so I guess I should consider myself lucky.

  • I have asked him if he would like a box of kleenex to blow his nose and he looks dumbfounded and asks why he would need kleenex and I tell him it is better to blow then it is to pick and he just gives me a disgusted look

  • Id have to say someting to him. my so bites his nails which drives me crazy so when we're cuddled up watching tv and his munching on his nails I gently pinch his leg so he realises what his doin, I know its a habit he has a hard time controlling and doesnt even realise his doin it half the time so he welcomes a gentle pinch..
