What are your biggest complaints about DH/SO?

Mine are

#1. SO will not clean the inside of the toilet after he poops. He will take a clorox wipe and clean the lid, but that's it. Disgusting!

#2. He will not put toilet tissue on the roll.

#3. He turns the shower head towards the back of the shower. When I turn it on, water goes all over the floor. You would think I would have learned my lesson by now, lol.

Thankfully these are small things, but they still drive me crazy, lol.

He's never home. But, this isn't really a complaint, because he's working hard to support his family.

1. He's a huge sloppy pig (this is the worst)

2. He's lazy when it comes to house things like, cleaning his crap off of the toilet after using it, cleaning the toilet, cleaning the tub after use.

3. He eats bones. Entire bones when he's eating Chicken like a damn animal.

4. He's the loudest eater I've ever heard in my life. I hate eating next to him or when I'm not eating it's even worse.

#1 he works out (exercises) too much! (He is in GREAT shape) And he spends too much $$$$ on his dumb protien powder and it makes his pee STANKY!

#2 the shower head, I have the same problem with my dh! He is 6'2" I'm 5'1"

#3 He is picky as hell when it comes to food, he only eats crap like pizza cheeseburgers etc. PISSES me off when I cook something amazing and he won't eat it because it's gross (AKA healthy)

This couldn't have come at a worse (or maybe BETTER) time....

So today I got up and I said we needed to clean the house today. It was just untidy and annoying. I wanted to do a bit of deep cleaning too- I hadn't cleaned around my washer/dryer in a few months, and I knew there were missing socks back there, etc.

Anyway, so as I got started I decided "you know, he NEVER cleans the bathrooms, or mops/sweeps or vacuums." so I said "would you rather sweep/mop the main level, or vacuum the stairs?

He chooses to sweep/mop the main level. JUST the main level, mind you.

So I go to the basement. My laundry area is pretty big- and it includes the water heater/furnace, and two storage closets. I cleaned and organized the closets, swept/mopped the laundry area, moved the machines and cleaned behind them, dusted off the cabinets, windowsills, cleaned the window etc. Then I cleaned a bathroom (shower, toilet, sink, floors, one window, dusted cabinets, washed mirrors), then I went into the messiest room in the house, the play room/office and straightened up all our papers, organized our bills, emptied trash cans, cleaned up the kids toys and reorganized them, washed and sanitized some of them, cleaned up the books, the crayons, the play dough... all the freaking LEGO's on the floor, filled a black trash bag FULL of broken toys and trash and papers and w/e else...Then vacuumed the floors down there, and up the stairs.

He was still working on the kitchen when I came up. Hadn't even STARTED sweeping or mopping. On top of that, the kitchen looked like a hot mess. I have NO IDEA what he cleaned. Seriously. In 45 minutes, my kitchen looked exactly the same and he was rinsing off a sponge...slower than molasses.

So I proceeded to sweep and mop the entire main level... his level. And vacuum the hall rug and living room rug. And clear out some clutter by the fireplace, and clean out the fireplace, and sweep around it, and dust the TV and electronics. And windex the windows... and take a box fan outside, rinse it off and let it dry. And about a million other things (took the couch apart and vacuumed it, moved it so I could sweep/mop UNDER it, etc).


Ya. Homey hadn't finished that one room... I was halfway done with the ENTIRE REST OF THE HOUSE.

It wasn't until I was already done vacuuming up the next set of stairs, had cleaned the kids' bathroom, and picked up/vacuumed in my boys' room that he finally finished whatever he was doing in the kitchen. And asked what he could do. Um... anything. Do anything. And don't make it take all day. Deal?

I was so freaking mad. lol.
