    Leaves the creamer out... all day.

    For that matter, has no concept of food spoilage.

    Thinks my getting sick is a reflection of my moral character.

    Eats a combination of yogurt, kimchi, and natto...

    Tells me we're doing something on the day we're doing it.

    Nicknames me with numbers ... either my weight or my salary...

    3Sons our guys may be related!!! :p

    Cutting a tomato and leaving it there in the fridge to spoil! No tupperware, no saran wrap, not even putting in a bowl?! Never returns to the same tomato - gets a new one? o_O

    Five half open bottles of water in the fridge. Swears up and down, "That's not mine, one of them are yours!"

    Bacon, eggs, and potatoes and Eggos for breakfast. Three minutes later, A full bag of potato chips for snack?..9:30am.

    I used to make dinner early, so he can heat it up when I get home. He eats it for breakfast! :mad: Oh no! I'm not cooking anymore! Lunch for dinner, dinner for breakfast, breakfast food all day. My lunch snacks are fare game. This little section on the shelf - what does that mean?? Oh, I can have two of them!!

    When I complain, he says..."I'll buy you more!" I say, "It's not the same thing." For one, I needed it NOW, that's for my lunch." And...buy your own stuff, eat your own junk. I don't want your health food, so let me eat my teeny packs of cookies! He inhales them. o_O

    Tells me he's not doing something with me on the day we're supposed to do it.

    Nicknames me with terms from some 70's movie.

    My SO and I have very different ways of looking at almost everything EXCEPT the things that matter most - mutual respect, empathy, being faithful, telling the truth, even when it is hard, being a staunch supporter of each other, and love that has grown over the years. In most other ways we tend to be diametrically opposed, but it takes these two halves to make a single whole. I may never check the oil in my car, and he will almost certainly never put a dirty dish in the dishwasher, but as a couple, everything gets done. If food is wasted, I get more. We both have incomes that go to one checking account, so there is not a separate his and mine.

    We absolutely do not watch the same TV or listen to the same music, and our ideas of what needs to be done right now is never in sync, yet we find common ground in the midst of a sea of differences, and I believe that we both know how to support each other in many subtle and caring ways. Neither of us vent often to the other, choosing to share our conversations about less frivolous topics. I don't think that soulmates have to be totally in sync with each other on the myriad of small details that make up our lives, but they need to be in sync for those things that matter. He loves cowboys, I love sci-fi, I'm a night-owl, he's an early riser, he will work non-stop all day, I may chill in he middle of he day, he works through sickness, I crash and rest, I love people, he could live without them - and the list could go on. I believe that, for us, accepting the other's differences without actually changing our own preferences falls into that matter of respect.

    My work relationships tend to follow the same kind of "rules". As long as petty is left out of decisions, we can all get along without hurt feelings or being judgmental. I tend to avoid those few individuals who have to have everything "their way." It is more confrontation than I need in my life.

    That's deep vickilyn....

    I have reached that peak at work this year....still trying for homelife..

    Need to see where we can merge the food as a couple. I can't see it now because it's hard for me to see how a man eats EVERYTHING in sight. He buys a few things here and there, but difficult for me to explain that there is no magic back door in the cabinet. No Keebler Elves putting more cookies in there after he eats them.

    So you simply need to find some Elves that have been laid off or retired and offer them great benefits to come work at your house - short days, good pay, lots of appreciation. Sounds like a plan to me!

    At our house, I bring home pies and cookies, since I have to be truly desperate to eat those, however, if I bring home cake, my weakness, hubby eats it the same as the cookies. My solution is to freeze some of the pieces since the freezer is far from the first place that the cookie monster would think to look. If they are eaten, however, I just buy more. Fortunately our grocery stores open before I have to be at work, or else I will substitute DD donuts with no complaints! Add a soda (which hubby would never touch) and my sugar rush is intact. ;)

    My husband also watches Wrestlemania. I don't care if he does.

    One thing that drives me nuts is how he says "literally." He emphasizes the /t/ sound. And he uses the word quite freely in conversation.

    Another thing is when I offer him a bite of my food from my fork/spoon, he sticks his tongue out of his mouth while taking the bite. It's really gross to me and so I rarely offer from my own utensils.

    I resorted to hiding pizza in the freezer. And my favorite snacks are in my school bags. That is the only way I can ensure I have lunch stuff.

    Nothing in the house is sacred. Now I have big gaps in my face cream!:confused:

    Listening to videos on his phone that are so LOUD, going completely silent when he's mad about something and can't even ask what is wrong because he won't answer! ugh

    I think he’s using it. His complexion is much better! :rolleyes:

    Buying more food doesn’t help. He still eats whatever I get for me.

    I would a small box or cabinet that can be locked!! It's kind of hard for me to comprehend that a grown man will eat things he is specifically asked not to.

    Hence the title of this thread...

    When I get fed up, I stop shopping and cooking. Then, of course, he buys stuff. And cooks?

    WTH?

    We are a couple, I am not his mother. What on earth makes him think otherwise?
