Same mysterious occurrences are experienced in my house, nearly 2700 miles away. Coincidence? I think not.

Why is my husband at your house?!

I’m not even lying when I say those three pictures enraged me. I MEAN C’MON!

You forgot the dirty clothes on the floor right in front of the laundry chute/hamper. Jackasses.

It’s reversed at my house. My wife does ALL of these things pictured above.

My daughter is the one that leaves shoes everywhere.

The other two pictures – all three kids. Along with getting laundry *close* to the hamper. And not flushing, evar.

oooooh…what about the pile next to the hamper? Yours has to do that too?!?

But where are the beer bottles sitting next to the sink? You must have the elusive recycling fairy at your house.

HAAA! I’m sending this one to my mom. My stepdad does all three of these. The question of “why not the dishwasher” keeps her up at night. With rage.

Nope. Sorry, you are NOT EVEN CLOSE. (Me: three brothers, a father, a husband and two sons. Bitch, PUH-LEEZE.)

Leave ONE Oreo (M&M, chip, fill-in-name-of-snack, piece of bread) in the package, and the excuse is ‘they didn’t use it up.’ In the bathroom: two towels, same number of towel racks. Number of towels on the floor? Take a wild guess. My husband let that tp sit there like that for 1 1/2 weeks, I just wanted to see how long it would take until I did it myself.

This is why my pets are females. And I taught them (the boys, not the pets) to do laundry themselves when they were in about 6th grade. BUT…but…they usually do the same pieces of clothing about four times each for each time they wear them.

But I’m FINE, thanks for asking! (Happy to know I’m not alone, either!)

I am impressed by how close that bowl got to the sink. SO CLOSE and yet so far.

Mine piles up his socks in various locations around the house. Probably to inject some fun into the laundry for me, I imagine. Scavenger hunt laundry fun!

Wait, you’re telling me this is universal behavior? The sole male in my house also likes to leave empty boxes or milk cartons sitting on the counter, apparently so I’ll remember to buy more. (Never mind that there is a list on the refrigerator that would serve the exact same function.)

I am still laughing….the bowl by the sink is PERFECT!!!

I am ashamed to admit that I have given up. I leave the socks on the floor and when he asks where are his clean socks I say I don’t know because I washed everything in the hamper (with a little smile). That one little act of passive aggressiveness helps with my rage issues. It helps so much.

But wait. The shoes are lined up. The shoes must be willy nilly and not lined up in order to be MALE behavior.

You totally forgot to add the picture of the milk (or whatever) carton that only has a thimble-ful of milk (or whatever)left in it that was put back into the fridge/pantry. And the 15 exact SAME items all opened (rather than finishing one before opening the next). Grrr.

Check, check, check. There must be a man living at my house …

How about the clothes NEXT to the hamper… the 7 water glasses scattered around the house like the kid from Signs… and the throw blankets and pillows on the FLOOR. Why? WHY?!!!

What is with the toilet paper?! I have seen this in many, many households! That drives me nuts. Why not take the extra small step and put the TP on the dispenser, fellas? And the bowl! Why?!

Same at my place, except that our toddler likes to play with our shoes and chew on them. So her nasty little habit finally got my husband to put his shoes away rather than leave them out everywhere. Now, if I can only figure out how to get my toddler into a dangerous situation with dirty dishes and tp rolls …

I am soooooo guilty of the “shoes all over the house” habit. By the front door, back door,garage door, in the laundry room, under the bed, in front of the couch, under the coffee table, under my desk. BUT the peanut butter crusted knife in the sink and underwear/socks on the bathroom floor… that is all hubby ;-)

Just seeing that bowl not in the dishwasher made blood spurt out my ears. Someday I will be featured on that “Snapped” show. When called before the judge I will merely present pictures such as these and she will say “I see, you are free to go.” That is exactly how I see all that playing out. For real.

Do we have the same husband? My favorite is the apple sticker on the sink faucet.

Maybe they should just start the day by peeing in the corner of every room. We get it. It’s your HOUSE. You can do whatever you WANT. Ugh.

I do every single one of those things. Should I get my testosterone levels checked?

My husband leaves the kool-aid/iced tea pitcher in the fridge once he’s emptied it. Is he keeping the plastic ‘chilled’ so when I refill it it’ll cool faster? He will, however, remove the empty milk jug from the fridge only to leave it on the kitchen counter. Boggles the mind.

With all the rage in the comments I’m kind of afraid to admit this but…well..I’m having my period and it’s ugly-gorey so I’m pretty sure I’m a chick and…here goes…I do all of those things. All the time.

Haaa! Tonight I came home from work to find 4 pairs of (giant, man-sized) shoes/sneakers all in front of the china hutch in the kitchen. And a pair of (dirty) socks on THE KITCHEN COUNTER. Yeah.

Ok, so I’m a woman and I am SO guilty of all three of these. Especially the shoes and the toilet paper partial roll replacement. My husband always teases me and now my daughter is leaving her shoes by the door. My husband always has his shoes in the closet and replaces TP but he and I are equally bad on dishes. Yes, I married well ;)

Triple it. My husband, 18 and 17 year old sons. Trip in the door every night by the amount of huge male size shoes strewn all over the place. TP, bowls, empty containers, laundry on the floor, water glasses in every room, they all do them all the time and it does not matter how many times I bring this to their attention, don’t pick up after them…it goes on.

Socks on the floor. SOCKS ON THE FLOOR! WHY THE SOCKS ON THE FLOOR?

The bowl. The bowl! Drives me up the wall.

My husband did the first two today! When I showed him your blog, and mentioned that, he said, “I did?” Grr. He doesn’t leave his shoes around anymore because we have a cat that likes to mark its territory on shoes left by the door. I may or may not have trained the cat to do this.

Um, I just don’t even see what the problem is….I might use that bowl again, the toilet tissue is next to the toilet, and my shoes are easily accessable, and not muddying up the floor, very much anyway. What?

OMG, have I gone to the dark side?

I’m guilty of all of it. EXCEPT the tp issue. My hisand shakes his head and reloads the dishwahser after I do it “wrong”. He didn’t have to tell me twice, I just let him do it “his way”

“You forgot the dirty clothes on the floor right in front of the laundry chute/hamper. Jackasses.”

YES. OMFG that makes me want to go out and buy a chainsaw.

Jess

hey at least the bowl is by the sink and not on the coffee table, and the shoes are lined up on the rug and not wherever they will be tripped on, AND the toilet paper is near where it should be and not in the cupboard just waiting for mom to replace it .

OMG these comments and the pictures are killing me! The TP, shoes and laundry on the floor right in front of the hamper those are the things that make me INSANE. INSANE!!!!!!!!

My life. And the rest of my life, passing before my eyes. Hate that so many others are in the same boat (seems wrong to say, glad I’m not alone)…but at least I’m not taking it so personally now. *sigh*

Yes. Just, yes.

I suppose posting a photo of socks and underwear on the floor would have been too inappropriate? ;)

The TP on top of the nearly empty role is NOT only done by males. I see that in the women’s bathroom at work too, so I KNOW women do it too. Pisses me right the hell off when I see it. I mean, seriously? Installing the new roll after removing the used up roll… it’s not rocket surgery, ladies!

I wish I could say that it was the Male in our house who was guilty of these things *hangs head*

Putting empty packages back into the pantry when he is done snacking.
Leaving packages of things undone (tortillas unwrapped, bags of rice or sugar open) when he puts them back into the pantry.
Refusing to put away clean laundry, choosing instead to store the clean clothes in the hamper and the dirty clothes in a heap on the floor.
Socks just, everywhere, man.
Books also, just everywhere.
Stacks of or lone CDs just freaking every-god-damn-where.
Leaving anything that should fall to the floor where it lies and then actually WHINING if I ask him to pick it up.
Cramming towels into the the linen closet in a knot instead of folding them.
NEVER putting ANYTHING back in the spot where he got it from. If he uses the shampoo, it is halfway across the shower from where I keep it. If he puts dishes away, instead of putting them back in the same spot they have lived in for six years, he just seems to open doors and drawers at random and shove stuff in. If he uses the vacuum, it will sit in the middle of the last room he uses it in for approximately three days until I break and ask him to put it up. In those three days he will see around the vacuum, but won’t actually see it, because he’s not interested in it, and therefore it doesn’t exist to him. Same with dirty dishes, the aforementioned laundry heap, the mail he needs to open and anything else that should be addressed in a timely manner. If he’s not interested in it, it doesn’t exist. Fable III exists. And his Netflix Instant Stream.

I’m not talking about a 12 year old boy. I’m talking about my husband, who has ADD.

The other day, I found a pair of neatly folded (used) underpants on the sofa.

THE. SOFA.

And he is also guilty of the “put things away wherever” trick. The can opener is never in the same place twice. And things that have multiple pieces? One part will be in the drawer, the other piece will be in the cupboard with the dishes, and another part will be under the sink. It’s like an Easter egg hunt, but with kitchen utensils.

Yes,yes and yes. I could also add his pile of clothes laying next to the laundry shoot.

Throw in a photo of kitchen cabinet doors and/or drawers left open and you’d have “My Life in Photos” :)
