Yesterday's post got me thinking about not just the way couples do things, but the things couples debate about. Most of them are ridiculous and really don't matter in the end, but for some reason people still seem to fuss about them!
Over or Under - You know what I'm talking about. That's right, the toilet paper. Does the roll need to be placed over or under? I personally could care less. Ray insists that it must be over, or else the TP wont tear off at his command and the entire roll will unravel over the bathroom floor and the world will come to an end. Well, I hate to break it to ya, people, but if you use two hands instead of just one, everything will work itself out. Promise. But wait, then that would require the effort of picking up another arm after you've just used all that effort doing who knows what in the bathroom. What was I thinking with such a silly suggestion!
Stubble in the Sink - I can't stand this one. If I get water on the sink after washing my face, I wipe it off. I can't count how many times I have gone into the bathroom to use the sink and there is facial hair stubble and water flooding the counter tops. Ok, maybe it's not flood bad, but it definitely makes me wonder how on earth that much water got there. Needless to say, it could use a wipe down, and I don't want to have to do it!
Rinsing off Dishes - I got lucky with this one. I grew up having to rinse and put my dishes in the dishwasher after I used them. I'm not sure if Raymond had to do the same, but he does it now. If you are someone that just throws your dishes into the sink when done, I promise you (cross my heart and everything), that if you start rinsing your dishes too, life will become a better place for you. At least the task of dishes wont be a daunting.
Leaving Wet Towels on the Floor/Bed - Call me gross, but I use my towel more than once before washing. I don't know about you, but I don't want to do 4 extra loads of laundry a week. But do I throw it on the floor or bed to dry and then reuse it? Nope. I can understand throwing it on the floor (I prefer the hamper) if you're done with it, but not if you're planning to use it again. Now that is gross. I find myself removing a damp towel from the bed at least every other day. Hmph.
I'm sure there are a million and one more things that couples debate about or do differently... but these were the top few in my book.
What does your sig. other do that drives you nuts?
