Has to open the dishwasher door when the washing stops (before the dishwasher has dried and cooled the dishes).

I don't think I saw this in the posts. When my Wife could drive and I went to use her car, guess how much gas was left in the tank....

Will use my wusthof knives as a box cutter to open her significant daily amazon shipment. Finally gave up fighting it and put a cheap commercial knife in an open hole in my knife block.

I thought I was the only one. My wife has asked me to "fix" the dishwasher several times because it smells so bad. I can't seem to get her to understand that it is not a disposal, and that food left inside of it will rot and... smell.

That, and no matter how many times I explain it she can't grasp that the separators in each tray are different widths and depths, so you can put things in one area that won't fit in another.

Maddening... but almost 25 years and all else is pretty good.

Two that drive me the battiest:

1) Bitches every single time when I answer my Bluetooth connected cell phone in my truck, which requires pressing one button on the steering wheel, yet will spend 10-15 minutes looking and scrolling on her phone while driving to select the streaming audio she wants in her car. Gets really livid when I bring it up.....

2) Cannot put kitchen utensils in the same place twice when she empties the dishwasher. Since I do most of the cooking, I have a pretty good idea where the devices should be, but if she empties the dishwasher, all bets are off, and I hate when I have to search for something. It was mentioned above by another poster, but I also don’t understand how she needs to use every pot and pan in the rare cases when she cooks, especially when it is something simple. I am pretty efficient when I cook, and have never had to load and run the dishwasher twice when making a meal for just the two of us.

Hate it when she walks in front of the television when bringing my beer from the fridge.

Mine makes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the youngest and doesn’t scrape the sides of the jar as she uses it. Just makes a mess!

After reading this I'm glad to see my wife's quirks are pretty normal and the struggle is in fact real.

Married for 35 years and I just don't let things but me much any longer.....but there are still a few.

She is always cold so the heat goes up in the winter and the A/C goes up in summer, she basically cooks me out of our bedroom. I sleep downstairs right under the A/C vent during the summer, and I sleep downstairs with all of the heat off in the entire room. I've been sleeping down stairs for about a year now, got tired of waking up sweating like I just ran a marathon. I would change the temp and she would change it back so I just moved location where I sleep.

Rarely uses the dishwasher, I call her the dish floater. She will fill up the sink with water with the dishes in it but then not do the dishes. I do dishes every day and it bugs the hell out of me. She said she doesn't like clearing out the dishwasher when it's done so I told her I would be happy to do it. Now I wash them by hand and they put them all away.

Our garage doors are around the back of the house and when I'm hope I leave them open except in the winter. I will go outside to do something and come back and the garage door will be closed. I got pissed off about it enough so I put in a keypad now but even if I just go down to get gas in the car/truck she will close the door as soon as I leave. We have in the past gotten a opossum, squirrel, and a snake but I took care of all of them without that much effort. It was 3 cases of a problem in 30+ years so what are the odds it will happen again??

I know I have some things that bug her and some I try to correct but others I just tell her to live with it the way I live with the stuff she does. Marriage is a massive compromise on just about everything. I don't want to steal this thread so I want to post all of the things she does that I thing are special.

Thermostat is a constant struggle here too.

I like to “not be cold.” She wants to “feel warm.” Not cold is about 68 degrees. Evidently warm is about 76.

Honestly sometimes I'll side with the other person so she'll get mad at me and shut up for a few hours.
Reminds me of ...

This one is small but repetitive. Every night, on her way to bed, it never fails she tells me to turn the TV down. "Its on the same thing its been for the last 10 years!!!!"
Now me on the other hand, I'm trying to evolve. I've learned to cook a whole meal using 1 pot. (instapot)
LOL same exact things my wife does. OK I am going to bed now, turn the TV down, then goes up and turns the bedroom Tv on loud.

My wife goes "grocery shopping for the week" except she does not like to cook. She just goes to Trader joe's and buy's random things that dont go together, fill up the refrigerator and never get eaten.

She always takes leftovers home from a restaurant except she does not like leftovers. Her explanation is that she does not want to offend the restaurant by leaving half of the food uneaten, so she takes it home.

Damn...can't hide money!

I like 68 as well. Anything over is cost prohibitive in the winter.

sharp knives in a sink with dishes and soapy water, I tell her it's idiotic, she says it's idiotic to go thrashing your hands in the water enough to cut yourself.

As I write this, there are four kitchen towels hanging on the oven door handle. Why four you ask? Because the two on the bottom are wet and she wanted dry ones to wipe her hands on. The laundry room is five feet away, right on the other side of the door. Why not throw the wet ones in the laundry basket? Because the oven will dry them out. Which, of course it won't because the two new ones on top are now damp. Now there are four towels of varying degrees of dampness hanging there.

Speaking of the kitchen (well, sorta speaking of the kitchen), who needs two large drawers full of Tupperware, Glad, and Ziplock storage containers? Literally dozens and dozens of containers. We don't have that much leftover food to store. Hell, four families don't have that much leftover food that needs to be put up.

Oh well, her kitchen, her rules.
