Well my last partner stalked me dreadfully after we broke up, I nearly had a nervous breakdown....previous husband/partners...I would say the main thing that stands out is 'words rather than action'....give me 'action rather than words' in doing tasks etc anyday....
I am now without a partner so I am blissfully happy without having to put up with annoying behaviour.
The worst thing I think,was the way he would start many little (and some big) jobs,but never finish a single one! Everyone who knew him would joke that being in the Artillery regiment in the Army,he waas certainly living up to the job description of Gunner: Gonna do this, and Gonna do that!!!!
Oh You POOR poor thing!!!!! There is NOTHING quite as frustrating as this sort of thing!!I finally had my dwnstairs room totally gutted and re-built.It had only been 25 years since the ex started to strip ONE of the walls!!! At least,the entire job has now been done and to a VERY high standard,and needing absolutely NOTHING else at all doing! My son took over the mortgage when I became too ill to work,and he paid for this wonderful job to be done.Thank heavens he has not inherited his father's behaviour patterns!!!
I have to say, that photo is absolutely hilarious! Good find.
My partner and I get along incredibly well. The two issues that make us fight are roses - he says we have enough, I say you can't get enough - and shelves - he's forever building them and they're UGLY!!! At least roses are pretty!
I'd rather fight over roses and shelves than money though.
He tells his mum things I've said to him in confidence: "Vee said your pita was bad yesterday." Vee stares at husband. "What? Why are you looking at me like that?" Oh man does that get my blood boiling! He doesn't do it often and he doesn't do it out of spite, he just doesn't think!
Oh where do I start? Mostly him not listening. Just recently we went out for dinner with another couple. The other female ordered the same steak as me but with vegetables, where I requested salad. My order came back a with completely different steak. Also this couple were staying overnight. I told my partner which milk to get and he got the opposite!
When I phoned him to collect me from work function, I waited. Waited. Waited.
After 30 minutes' I hailed a cab.
His excuse? He was in the middle of doing 'something' important.
So his wife, standing on a street, late at night wasn't important?
He also was never punctual. Hated it.
He'd many other really annoying traits.
I don't have to worry anymore, as now independent!
Not listening. Asking the same question several times and being answered. Can't see leaves and other garden refuse needs to be swept up and not traipsed through the house. Not wiping down and cleaning kitchen sink. Not putting dirty cutlery in sink or dishwasher to be washed. Not wiping away crumbs on the bread board....and the list goes on, plus "close enough is good enough".
