25 Small Things Your SO Does That Are Annoying AF


We have different sleeping schedules: he’s an early riser, whereas I’m a night owl. He tends to go to sleep at midnight and wake at six or seven in the morning, whereas I’ll gladly stay awake until four in the morning and wake up at ten or eleven. I’m content to let him sleep in peace during the late nights while I’m still awake, and try to regulate how much noise and motion I make so as not to wake him. He, on the other hand, gets up at his terrible morning hour, spends ten minutes fretting, and then immediately has to pester me awake by any means necessary, up to and including actually laying on me and poking me in my sides. One day I’m going to shrink wrap him to the bed.


He gives waaay more fucks about the smallest things than I do. Deep down, I’m sure this is why we’ve managed to be together for so long but I can’t help but roll my eyes at it. Something misplaced in the kitchen? He’s ranting and raving for 5 whole minutes letting it bother him in a way I’ll never understand. I’ll find what he’s looking for and give it to him like “alright, relax. It’s fucking right here!” But he’ll grumble about it still. I can’t even fathom getting so worked up about something so insignificant, seems like a waste of time and energy. I just wait until his few minutes are up until I get a rational human being back. Super annoying but does have its funny moments.


All of his ways of entertaining himself are just so LOUD. It’s YouTube video’s or podcasts or video games. I’m a person who likes quiet, but and i just wonder how people can even LIKE that.I can sit at my computer and just read articles or whatever without making noise. Or, you know, read books.


Overreacting. There’s two modes to her: everything is fine, or slamming her fist down on the nuclear missile launch button as the world is ending because of what just occurred.


My wife puts the toilet paper on the holder with the flap to the back instead of in front. This might actually be grounds for divorce.
