I recently read an article and loved it so much that I had to compile my own list of the things I do which drive my hubby crazy!
Paint my nails
If you listen to him, everytime he looks up, I am painting my nails. He walks into a room and all he can smell is nail polish. While that’s an exaggeration, I do like having painted nails and I am afraid he will just have to put up with it.
Drink iced coffee
I recently asked him to get a carton of coffee out of the fridge for me whilst he was standing right by it. He was astonished that I had 1) bought iced coffee and 2) planned to drink it. But I say, coffee doesn’t have to be hot!
Eat greek yoghurt
I always like having a couple of pots in the fridge for dessert, or for smoothies, or for mixing with porridge, but it baffles him.
The amount of books I read
He knows I love to read, but the amount of books I go through amazes him. During the evenings I often read while he watches TV, or I go to bed early to read, and as a man who reads one book a year, he can’t get his head around it.
Visit coffee shops
He doesn’t buy coffee or tea when we’re out. He doesn’t see the point in coffee shops, but I love going to them for a yummy drink and a slice of cake. It’s definitely not something we agree on!
Lack of musical ability
As a piano teacher, he is a highly skilled musician but he gets frustrated when I can’t pick up a ‘simple’ tune. I have zero knowledge and it takes me a long time to remember which keys to press. We have different ideas of what’s ‘simple’.
My hair routine
It takes my hair about 6 hours to dry naturally and he doesn’t understand how that’s possible. I also used dry shampoo in front of him the other day, and he thought I had to go in the shower to rinse it out. Anything to do with hair bemuses him.
