Your Partner Does What?! #OnMyNerves

Partner driving you crazy in quarantine? You’re not alone. I polled some of my favorite mommas to ask what’s driving them crazy. Here are some of my favorites. Names are removed to protect the annoying.

My husband cannot do anything while on the phone. He can barely multitask when he’s not on the phone. He might have been in the middle of making dinner but if he answers the phone he will just walk away and be oblivious to everything else happening around him.

Finish the food before you answer, man.

Refuses to ask actual humans for advice / guidance. Like calling to order pizza pains him. Asking a Disney cast member for guidance? Never. Dude. Life’s not that complicated! Talk to humans, for the love.

This. This. This.

He puts the phone on speaker every time he uses it.

We don’t want to participate in your conversation, dude. Use your earbuds.

Every time I ask (my husband) to grab something for me, he’ll walk around and say he can’t find it, then I come behind him and find it.

Every. Single. Time.

Whew! Where do I start? Constantly tells me how he’s so much more tired than I am because he’s been at work all day. ? I don’t know what the heCK this is I do 40 hours every week!

More tired than a mom? I don’t think so, buddy!

Checks on me if I’m in the potty for a while. Like what the heck dude, I’m not gonna fall in and I wipe my own butt ??‍♀️

No, I don’t need help in here, thanks.

He leaves all of the cabinets open after unloading the dishwasher. I don’t KNOW WHY.

Just. Close. The Doors.


This must be happening in a lot of places because a reply to that complaint was this beauty:

Oooo mine leaves drawers open and one day you’re going to read about me in the paper and the neighbors will say, “Everything seemed fine. This sort of thing never happens on our street. We didn’t even hear the shots.”


How about conveniently needing to poop when I ask for help with dishes or whatever? I’m just saying I cant be the only one this is happening to.

The. 45. minute. showers. WHAT does he DO in there!?

Plot twist, he’s really soaking in the tub.

When I ask him to help me clean the house for a party, he cleans the garage…..who the hell is going in there during a party??

My personal favorite and one I can most relate to! Stop cleaning the gutters and do some dishes.

Is your partner doing little things to sandpaper your nerves? Tell me about it in the comments!
