Totally trivial whinge

Does anyone else's wife have a particularly annoying habit that really gets you wound up?

As an example, my wife won't bother to say much to me most of the time, but the instant I put my headphones on she immediately feels the need to have a long and involved conversation with me. She can see that I've got the headphones on, but she still keeps talking and gets annoyed when I don't pay any attention.

The same happens when I open a book and settle in for a good read. She then gets irate because I'm not listening to whatever she's prattling on about (I really do get deeply involved when reading!).

When I haven't got the headphones on, or I'm not reading, she's got nothing she considers important enough to discuss with me...

Not that the lockdown is getting to us... no, no, no, not at all...

I should add that I do love her, but she does these things that really wind me up... but, after all, we have been married since 1973 so maybe this isn't a major problem!

I am also absolutely certain that I do things that massively annoy her as well!

Well one thing you can be sure of - it is your fault not hers

Joking aside. Lockdown has been very hard on marriages and breakups in the last year have sky rocketed. So she may be feeling down and lonely. I've deliberately spent more time with my wife than ever and we always make time to sit down and watch a series on tv together every evening (been watching Lost), going as a family to parks and walks, going for a meal when permitted (without the kids). Plus she regularly has mums nights on video chat with her friends while they natter over a beer their trash tv shows I refuse to watch.

As my dad's always said. If there's issues don't ignore them and never take marriage for granted. These may just be the early warning signs. I say this after two of our close friends have both ended their marriages and both said the same thing, that they'd stopped communicating with their partners. Kinda sad really.

I know what you mean! mine says the most ridiculous stuff, it isnt even funny any more

two days ago, I had to take a Paracetomol, and she asks why ? and i say ive got a headache, and she says were ?
apparently the answer is not, in my f ing left foot !! well thats what i said !

It actually caused an argument, about were a headache in your HEAD means,

So i pretended to take another Paracetomol, and said ive taken another, because my headache is much worse now, and its down to you,

Ive got hundreds of stories, of some of the shyte she has said over the years, yet i get the blame !!

I will try and find the dustbin one, its one of my all time favorites





Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

My wife's foibles are all about timing:

I stay up later than I should, finally decide that I am too tired and really must get to bed, plus having hung on longer than I should, I'm bursting for the toilet - and that's when she says, "Would you put the washing in the dryer and put another wash on?"

Or, I sit down (I have badly arthritic knees and getting up and down is painful) and a fraction of a second later, she says, "Would you put the light off?" or "Would you get me a drink?" She doesn't just do it herself, because her joints are even worse!

Almost every time I go shopping she phones me for something else that she has forgotten - just as the shopping is going through the till or even as I am walking out of the shop.

She's also completely last minutes (or just downright late) whenever she is going anywhere - usually leaving me with the stress of getting us there, through traffic, against the clock.

I know many of you may not be religious but reading the bible may solve all the problems.

I refer you to genesis.
quote:

So the†Lord†God caused a†deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.
And the rib that the†Lord†God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.

And†on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and tried to rest on the seventh day from all his work that he had done but woman talketh unceasingly and so God created shed.

And God saw that it was good.

I started reading that and thought "good grief, we have a religious zealot on the forum"... then I read the punchline!

Brilliant...

I'm not swapping mine - she gets that I like to jump out of planes, she understands that I need more than 3 cars and that a house is only really good when it has 3 garages and a man cave!

Occasionally I let her down,....



but then I find the pump and all is good again

I used to have a single-mum neighbour - one day she rang the doorbell and asked if she could borrow my jump leads. Ten minutes later she came back and said "that's got it going". So some can do it...

having recently separated from the wife (her choice!) I cant say I miss the moaning and not knowing what your coming home too!

I can now spend as much as i like on the car without having to negotiate or ask permission! Highly recommended!

Big bugbear of mine is asking questions whilst watching a film.... I'm the sort of person who likes to settle down, drink and nibbles to hand, and enjoy a movie. Wife decided within 10mins if she likes the look of it, and if not, will play on her phone/tablet (occasionally asking questions about the film shoes not watching).

Having said that, she's also the sort of person that will get underneath my Defender in the workshop on Christmas Eve eve and held fit bolts because my ham fists won't fit in the gaps properly. And can identify most car parts. And is learning to sail (not to mention allowing me to have multiple man-toys).

Swings and roundabouts, really! If you had told me last March that we'd be stuck together in the house working almost 24/7, I'd have thought there's be a new patio being laid with a bump in the middle, but just so happens we're doing OK!

For the faults my wife has, (i have a couple )

Shes a pretty good cook, keeps the house clean and tidy, shes a good Mum, and Nanny,

and as long as the bills are all paid, and we dont owe any money, and we dont! i am allowed to buy what ever i want hence a few RC planes have appeared in the garage, and she is fine

Also, since March 18 last year when i last worked, both of us have had down periods, but both of us are sensible enough to know, that when some one needs space, leave them alone, !!

We havent argued in years, well theres no point, as she has to have the last word, so i always say at the end, "and you have to say the last words"
and she says "no i dont" hahahaha

i zip my lips up, and go mute for the rest of the day, and it drives her nutty

When it comes to movie watching, the one that always gets me is where she chooses some movie or other and it's probably not what I would have chosen but it's not terrible. Then we watch it for 75 mins at which point she decides to go to bed with maybe 25 mins of the movie remaining! I watch the end because...why wouldn't you, and I let the dogs out, put the cats through in the utility room, lock up, tidy the kitchen and finally get to my bed about an hour later by which time she's fast asleep. Then in the morning I get grief because I lie in my bed for an extra hour!
