I know my wife and I aren’t the only ones that still have petty arguments from time to time so… I surveyed a few other husband’s to see what petty arguments we have in common! Well it didn’t take me long to see an overlapping theme. Tell me if you have them and tell me what you would add to the list! Keep reading!
No, I’m not stopping 3 other places!
Ladies why is it when you find out we are about go to make a run to one store, then you decide it’s a good time to give us a to do list that’s 3 pages long. Instead of going to one store you want us to stop at Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and CVS at the same time. What went from one quick trip to pick up some beers turned into a 3-hour shopping experience.
Get your hand off my plate!
Ladies, just so you know, the reason why we ask you what YOU want when we are at a restaurant or cooking is because we don’t want you putting your hands in our plate. Nothing is more annoying than when we have our plate all set up just like we like it… just for you to reach over and want a bite after you just said you didn’t want anything! Ultimately though, we still end up giving you a piece because we love you.
I’ll do the dishes when I want to!
Why is it that you get so upset if we don’t do something exactly when you want us to do it? If I’m in the middle of doing something and you ask me to do the dishes and I say OK it doesn’t mean I’m going to stop what I’m doing and do it right then and there! It will get done when I get it done.
For every 5 things that irk us, there are are 100 things that bring us joy.
Can we please be on time!
Ok I can respect the process it takes for you to get ready ladies and you look so beautiful when you are done, but why must we argue every time about being on time. We have 5 minutes to be there and yet for some reason we are still at the house and you’re just starting your makeup. Now. we are pacing back and forth looking in the bathroom to see what progress you’ve made and now you have an attitude with us. Don’t ask us why we are rushing and you and instead ask why you didn’t get started earlier. GEESH! LOL
Why aren’t you listening to me!?
PSA – men pretty much have one tracked minds and multi-tasking isn’t our thing so if we are focused on something don’t come and try and hold a serious conversation during that time. The funny thing is that you try to get us to talk while we are busy and then get mad at us for not listening.
If it’s one thing I’ve notice… it’s that my wife can’t stand to see me idol and doing absolutely nothing. Truthfully I live for the moments where I can be doing absolutely nothing but that usually is very short lived. Next thing you know here comes the wife talking about 5 other things that need to be done around the house or yard or something.
Yeah…I know some of these are petty and I know there are so many things that about us husbands that equally irk our wives. But the beauty of it all is that we still love each other anyways! Because for every 5 things that irk us, there are are 100 things that bring us joy. And when you are able to put things into perspective and stay focused on the good things, these small annoyances remain just that…small.
BMWK – Do you agree with this list? I’m quite sure there are many universal things that irk wives too… let us know.
