I have been there! The old, "It would be easier for me not to nag you if you did stuff." We are working on it.
Make your peace - sometimes this sh*t just happens.
Duuuuuuude. Empty boxes. He keeps the original box for EVERYTHING. We live in a tiny apartment. I want my closet back. :(*Sigh* but I love him and I leave dirty mac 'n cheese dishes everywhere, so who am I to judge?
maybe we could trade. i'll be on desk duty (heh) for a bit and you can tell joe to GET HIS FUCKING PASSPORT RENEWED ALREADY, MAMA NEEDS TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY.
it's the ipad in bed that really gets me. we HAD a no electronics in the bedroom rule, and then came the ipad.
I'd like to meet a woman who doesn't nag. We ALL do it to an extent. And I'd like to believe we do it with good reason! I'm also learning to pick my battles with the nagging...sometimes it's just not worth it!
My dirty bird mind went to a very naughty place when I read "No electronics in the bedroom." :)
geez... it kind of feels like I'M the one who's always being nagged. :/
Maddie, do we have the same partner?? Also, can we just banish the whole world "nag"? Eff that shit. Sometimes you need to ask people to do stuff, and sometimes you need to ask them multiple time, but that doesn't automatically make one a sitcom mom.
OMG, you just hit the nail on the head! I hate the word "nag".And I hate how they'll complain that we're nagging, yet they don't see the connection that if they DID what we asked, we wouldn't keep asking!!
I hate the word 'nag'. It has so much hideous meaning behind it. Saying something is not frickin' nagging boyo.
on monday kiwi said he would call the plumber to fix our hot water heater... it's friday and i still haven't had a hot shower. now he's decided he can fix it himself. i love the man, but for the love of god... call the plumber already!
i'm with you, celia!
I nag him to quit smoking. But I feel like that is a valid nag.
I hate that desk too!
FH is big on recycling. I won't say I'm not, however:- our city only has municipal recycling for homeowners and buildings with 4 or fewer apartments- our building has 10 apartments, and our landlord does not offer recycling- our city does not allow private citizens to use the transfer station (even for a fee) and the closest transfer station that allows non-residents to use it (even for a fee) is an hour awayAs a result, we have bags. And bags. And bags. Of recycling. Every once in a while (every couple of months or so), FH carts it to the transfer station. It makes me insane to have all of this garbage sitting around.So, when he's not looking, I throw would-be "recycling" in the trash. I feel bad about it, but I feel worse about having all of this SHIT in our apartment.
omfg. I hate keeping original boxes too. I hate it more than arguing about stupid shit. Is it still considered nagging if you're the forever girlfriend?
@ celia. i'm with you. I'm always the one being nagged about cleaning up after myself. i'm better now that i'm working less hours but man it's tough being married to a neat freak. geeeeeez.
@ lauren, amen sista.@ maddie, is it a guy thing? I don't understand keeping the original box either. is it a souvenir?? throw.it.out.
It wouldn't be nagging if he just did what needs to be done. I'm not asking for fun. I can't do everything.
I reckon you wouldn't bore-nag, it'd be more like a strut-pout-nag which is way cooler.
@Julia sigh. IWISH.
And I quote, "Would I be on you if this wedding was not in TWENTY SIX DAYS?" -Me. I just stumbled on your blog. love it!
