Ten Ways I Annoy My Husband (Without Really Trying)

1) I have purchased exactly one plunger, which may or may not be located near the toilet currently overflowing. (We have three toilets, one plunger, a 3:1 ratio, obviously not efficient.)

2) I leave wads of crumpled used tissues on my bedside table. What can I say? I have allergies.

3) At least once a month, eager for an evening snack, he pours cereal in a bowl, opens the fridge and finds . . . no milk. This is highly disappointing to him.

4) I leave shoes out, under the dresser, near the bed, wherever. I can't be bothered.

5) I insist on doing things My Way (aka The Right Way), things like loading the dishwasher and packing correctly for trips.

6) I turn down corners of the magazines he leaves in the bathroom so I can pick up where I left off.

7) Clutter.

8) I mock his heritage by using an improbably bad Southern accent.

9) I talk to him during "important" portions of shows he's trying to watch.

10) I don't get out of bed when the alarm rings. I'm a three-hits-to-the-snooze-button kind of girl.

When I pour a bowl of cereal and find no milk...disappointed would be putting it mildly. Fortunately, I eat cereal rarely and never in the morning...only as a bedtime snack.
As for the rest of your list, I suppose if I were to make a list, it would look similar so I can't sympathize too much.

Ahhh....#9 would be on D's list of petpeeves. He now so kindly yells out "dialogue" during his shows. Ha! Like that works for me, it's evening, I still haven't used up all my words for the day!

Mel, you are my long-lost sister, I think. EVERY one of those things could be on my list, except the mock southern accent. I annoy my Hubs with my REAL southern accent.

I have to admit, #9 would be a deal breaker.

Based on your list, I can assure you that you would also annoy my husband... how do I know this you ask? Because change the southern accent to Romanian and I'm already annoying him in all those ways for you. :)

My wife once vaccuumed during the Packers-Vikings game. The next day I retaliated by relating a very long, boring story, complete with sound effects, during American Idol (or whatever it is she was watching). We get along well.

Good list, fun blog!

Okay, you would annoy me too...

But I have to admit that I am just like you in 1,6,7. 10 would get you a whap on the arm to get out of bed (see 5). So maybe we are really kindred spirits after all.
