We're going to have a bit of good natured Sometimes other people, without intent, do things that drive us crazy! Maybe your SO always leaves the seat up but he was raised in a household of boys. Or your best friend knows you eat supper at 6 and always calls with 'urgent' news just as you sit Or does your sister-in-law make belittling remarks about the gifts you bring at Christmas? There's always one in every family. devil

To make this simple I've started an answer for you. Without mentioning real names nor being too mean, go ahead and share what irks you! shocked Here goes...

"I don’t mean to get knitpicky, BUT.. I have this friend/spouse/whoever who ( fill in the blank ) and it drive me crazy!

For me it's my daughter. smhair She's a sweet gal, a great mom and a pal to her friends BUT...every time she calls or comes over to visit all she does is complain! And not once but she tells me the same thing like 17 times! Gosh, I'd like to visit with her about something cheerful and not have to listen to her bashing someone. I try to change the subject but she as born talking and hasn't stopped once in her 36 years. Don't you think she'd run out of breath now and then. I can put the phone down when she's talking, go make a cup of coffee, toast and sti back down and she has no idea I've been gone. tongue Maybe that's why her younger brother was so quiet. He couldn't get a word in edgewise!

Wheww...that feels better. ahhhh

I have lived in a smoke free invironment for about 7 years since my husband quit smoking.  I can't stand it anywhere around me now.  I have a friend that lights one right off another and when we go out with her and her husband she has this awful habit of talking and blowing smoke right in my face.  I finally had enough and mentioned it to her in a pleasant way but she apparently forgot and still does it.  She drives me up a wall with her smoke, but I hate to loose her friendship.

My cousin has a girlfriend whom I have become friends with over the past year.  Over the past few months when I see her or talk to her all she does is complain and it's over things that to me would be insignificant--VERY UNNERVING!  Also, and this isn't that big a deal but her grammar is horrible......But that's me being picky I guess.

My husband who left me 5 years ago (boy has it been that long?) and who I own a business with constantly bashes me when we are in the store together. We own a UPS Store and I try not to go in too often but must at times. I do the financial end of the business mainly from the house. But when I go in he can be so belligerent towards me. Constantly tells me what I do wrong or that I ask too many questions.That why dont I know what to do after owning the store for 14 years. Since I am not in the store that much I dont remember how to do things and I try to explain that the fibro does that to me plus I had a mini stroke 2 1/2 years ago which I fully recovered from but my memory is not that great. Sometimes it gets so bad I have to walk out of the store if he starts in with me.

I love him dearly, but I have a husband that won't throw out a rubber band that comes wrapped around the celery.  Or paperclips, magazines, catalogs...he drinks his morning coffee out of a mug that a friend gave him 35 years ago...the lip of it is all chipped and jagged.  I wait until he goes to bed at night and toss things in the garbage can...otherwise I would be buried alive.
Three monster boxes of This Old House magazine anyone?  You never know when you might want to have orange shag carpeting from the 70's installed.

I know we are supposed to "love thy neighbor" but bless our neighbors heart....he loves his LOUD music...we live in a duplex and he loves to play his LOUD music just as I am trying to fall asleep for an afternoon nap...or he plays it LOUD just as I am going to bed!

My husband chews in his sleep. It's loud enough to wake me up.

My mother-in-law is a nice lady, but she doesn't take my fibro seriously.  The older I've gotten, the more this bugs me!  She's quite internet-savvy so I have to conclude that she just doesn't give much of a hoot.  After 30 years, this is wearing thin.  mad

I have a good friend who is a very sweet, kind, giving, and compassionate individual. The problem? She interrupts constantly during conversations. She will ask me a question, genuniely concerned, and before I have had a chance to answer her, she interrupts me with another question or comment that may be either related or totally unrelated to the conversation that we were having. It is as if something that I say makes her think of something that she wants to say, and she just blurts it out, I guess she's afraid that she will forget what she wanted to say. I always feel as if we never complete a conversation, so it gets frustrating. I have so many problems with not being able to concentrate, anyway, and this blows my whole train of thought. She is a rather sensitive person, so I'm afraid that she might take offense to my even gently raising this issue with her, so I have not said anything about it in the 20 years that I have known her.
