Ah yes, my husband, my rock, light of my life. Last week I set him loose with a list of things that irritate him about me. Luckily before he started his tirade, I already knew I was no Mary Poppins (practically perfect in every way). His rant had me in stitches as I attempted to write it all down.
Now, it really wouldn’t be fair for him to write I love you but you irritate me without my response now would it?
So, baby, I love you too, but you irritate me more….
1. Turning the bathroom light on in the middle of the night
I get that this is a 2 edge sword because no light means more difficult to see and therefore more difficult to aim. But our bathroom light floods our bedroom like it’s daylight. And I hate light when I’m trying to sleep as it wakes me up then I’m tossing and turning trying to go back to sleep while you crash back into bed and straight back to sleep next to me.
Maybe try sitting?
2. Leaving your dirty breakfast dishes on top of the dishwasher
You’ve got that far just open the door and put it in there!
3. Empty packets back in the cupboard
Same principle just chuck it in the bin!
4. Complaining over items missing on the shopping list
I have had two children. There is a thing called baby brain. Unless you write it on the list then I am not remembering. I don’t care if we get the same things every week, obviously we don’t if I forget it.
5. Continue watching series without me
I have only ever seen half of 24, parts of Breaking Bad, there are so many films that I’ve never seen the end of. It’s not always that I fall asleep, sometimes the baby needs feeding and you lack the equipment. Yet you don’t pause!!
6. The criticism of my tea making ability
Too much milk. Not enough milk. Too long to make? After 8 years have you not got the fact that although I like to drink tea I hate making tea?
7. How you have never been able to go for “one” drink
You’ve always had the best of intentions, just one after work, eight years later and I’ve learnt that one never means one!
Now I’ve not been able to get as many points as you, but that’s OK as we both know that I’m the more irritating one, it’s a skill I’ve honed over the years.
Love you x
